Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You have candida infection in genital tract and gram positive coagulase negative bacteria like staph etc should be considered and culture and sensitivity and responsive antibiotics should be started. Nutshell its a bacterial infection needs management.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
