Thanks to what FMS/CFS/LYME has done to alter my immunity, I am very allergic to stinging insects, and when I get stung, I must have huge doses of IV cortisone in the ER, which causes the yeast to go crazy.
If I get stung, I take Diflucan liquid for a month to get rid of it. Nystatin does nothing.
I take Diflucan tabs, 100 mg. twice a week all the time now to prevent yeast from coming back in my vulvar vestibules, under my breasts, on my tongue and a little in my lungs. I've had no side-effects at all, and liver tests are normal.
Before this, I spent years taking various combinations of Candex, caprylic acid, garlic, oregano oil, olive leaf extract, Samento, pau d' acro, and others, with no results other than stomach upset. Severe dietary restriction was not enough for me either. The only natural remedy that helped at all was Pleo Alb. Still, I would try this route first, before taking the drugs.
