Using Fluconazole When You Don't Have A Yeast Infection

Aug 8, 2008
Thousands of women treat their vaginal infection with a yeast infection treatment when they're not sure if they even have a yeast infection. Some women will use a topical treatment in the hope that they have correctly diagnosed their infection, and some other women will go the more dangerous route, and use anti fungal drugs. This article will inform you on why you mustn't use Fluconazole when you don't have a vaginal Candida infection.

The most important thing to do when you're suffering from any vaginal infection is see your doctor as soon as possible. A correct diagnosis needs to be established before you start treating yourself with any kind of anti fungal drugs. A high percentage of women that self diagnose themselves are too embarrassed to go to se their doctor, but this can be a dangerous thing to do.

Treating the wrong infection with Fluconazole when you're not suffering from yeast overgrowth in your vagina will lead to the real infection getting worse. Fluconazole doesn't cure anything other vaginal infections so the real infection will have a chance of spreading to your reproductive organs. This can lead to permanent damage if it isn't treated correctly and in time.

Using Fluconazole when you don't have a yeast infection will also create a super yeast in your body. If you expose the yeast that lives naturally in your intestines and on your skin to anti fungal drugs this exposure will make them resistant to the medication. This means that if you do ever suffer from a yeast infection it will be more difficult to treat because the mutated Candida fungus will have already had some exposure to the drug, and it could have no effect on them.

Taking anti fungal drugs will also upset your body's natural bacterial balance. You have friendly, beneficial bacteria living in your intestines and on your skin that keeps harmful yeasts like the Candida yeast under control. If the drugs you take kill the friendly bacteria then the harmful organisms can easily take control and start causing you problems.

Taking anti fungal drugs like Fluconazole when you don't need to can cause a lot of problems to your health later on. These types of drugs should only be used under the supervision of your doctor, and for that to happen you will need to book an appointment first. This removes the risk of you using any anti fungal drugs when you're not suffering from a yeast infection.
