Sorry as I know this is an regular topic here but....
how long do you find it takes for treatment to work? Should I double up and take another tablet- it says you can after 7 days- or use a pessary now as well?

I've taken an oral treatment tablet on Saturday ( or maybe Sunday not sure) and am still v sore. I think I am highly sensitive to yeast and have to medicate about twice a year. Worst symptom is burning skin after weeing, where the wee hits IYSWIM. This can last for a couple oh hours then when I wee again of course it comes back. Am also using some Canestan cream.

Has anyone used the new soft gel pessary? I'm panicking a bit as supposed to be doing a long car trip soon and am very sore to sit and also need the loo a lot.

I have been perscribed the tablet 3 times but it always had limiting effect. After suffering myself I recommend nelsons Candida they are from holland and barrets and even amazon and are herbal they are the only thing that works for me. Oh and dont eat breakfast cereal for a while. Hope this helps
