Complete Relief in As Little As 12 Hours! Rid Your Yeast Infection Permanently - Or Your Money Back!
The main type of yeast that is responsible for yeast infections is Candida albicans which causes Candidiasis and other yeast infections. The fungus is usually present inside our body in small quantities; the problem begins when the yeast overgrows due to some sort of stimulation like overuse of antibiotics or wearing moist and warm clothes. Treating yeast is possible through a variety of over the counter yeast infection medicines including Mycostatin, Gyne-Lotrimin, Monistat and Boric acid.
Mycostatin, also called Nystatin is basically used in liquid form as an oral medication for oral yeast infection; tablets of the drug are also used against the intestinal fungus infection caused by Candida. There are also vaginal and skin creams made from the drug which is used as yeast infection medication for the respective areas. The usual universal dosage of the drug is 1 mL of suspension, three to four times a day.
Miconazole is the actual name of Monistat, another over the counter yeast infection medication. The imidazole anti-fungal drug slows down the synthesis of ergosterol in the fungal cells causing the infection to die out; there is also an oral gel of Monistat other than the popular topical cream that is applied over the infected areas.
The main ingredient in Gyne-Lotrimin is Clotrimazole, it is also used in special lozenges apart from being used in creams and tablets. Continue thoroughly with the full course of this yeast infection medication, as stopping it before its course is over might result in the recurrence of your yeast problem. In case of side effects like blisters, hives or reddened and peeled skin or any other sort of pain or discomfort, contact your doctor immediately after ceasing the medication.
Orthoboric acid or Boric acid serves many functions along with being an effective treatment against yeast infections. In order to treat yeast infections near the vagina, a suppository (a mass of solid that melts quickly inside the rectum or vagina) containing roughly 600 mg of boric acid is inserted daily for a period of at least two weeks in order for the yeast infection medication to work.
The medications mentioned above are sometimes not enough indicating that the yeast needs more serious attention, it is then that you MUST consult a doctor. The prescribed drugs usually include Diflucan, Nizoral and Terozol.
Diflucan or Trican is the trade name of Fluconazole, used as a treatment against fungal infections; this white crystalline powder curbs the rate of conversion of lanosterol to ergosterol. This action of the triazole drug kills the yeast because ergosterol is necessary for the survival of the parasite.
Janssen Pharmaceuticals branded Ketoconazole as Nizoral which is also a shampoo, this is a synthetic drug meant for topical use and effective against all sorts of yeast infections but is now replaced by newer triazole compounds as they are not only more effective but also less toxic, as otherwise the drug has a tendency to accumulate itself in the cellulite of the body.
Terazol is perhaps the most specialized prescribed drug that is used as yeast infection medication; the drug is used as a suppository for the vagina and you should remember to disinfect the applicator well after using it. There are certain side effects of Terazol which might or might not occur, they include pain in the genital, abdominal or even the whole body, also headaches and more intense menstrual pain. In such a case, you should immediately consult your doctor while prohibiting the use of the drug until further notice.
The most important activity on your part should be to confirm whether or not you really have yeast infection and need adequate medication, the simple reason for this being that people often mix the symptoms up as there are certain other conditions with common symptoms. A simple microscopic culturing will reveal the truth of your suspicion therefore do the tests and always consult your doctor before taking any yeast infection medicine at all.
