For women, clotrimazole is effective in the form of a pessary (a tablet that is inserted into the vagina) together with local cream. Women can also use a single dose of an oral tablet called fluconazole, that is very effective for clearing infection as well. The tablet cannot be used if pregnant or in patients with severe kidney disease. Fluconazole also interacts with a number of other medications and it is therefore important that before purchasing fluconazole, any medication that is currently being taken is checked against this list. The MedExpress Consultation will help you with this.
For men, clotrimazole cream is usually effective for clearing the infection as well as providing soothing relief.
