Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

It seems that you have developed severe vaginitis as a result of candidiasis.

Often, after an anti-biotic treatment, the normal vaginal flora (physiological barrier against pathogens) is disturbed. As a result, strengthening of the natural vaginal flora, which is done with local administration of lactobacillus and potentially low dose of hormone (e.g. estriol) to increase the proliferation of the epithelial cells will be helpful.

You might benefit by consulting your doctor for prescription of the estrogen cream for the proper healing and relief of your symptoms.

Here are some tips for effective Ways to Prevent Candidiasis:
1. Eat yogurt with live bacteria
2. Practice good oral health by brushing and flossing teeth daily
3. Wash and dry the vaginal or groin areas before dressing
4. Maintain good hygiene practices when using the bathroom
5. Increase your intake of garlic because of its anti-fungal properties
6. Avoid excessive antibiotic use
7. Avoid eating sweetened and refined foods

I hope this helps.
