*N.H.S. Choices

*[Editor] Gentian Violet 1% can be used on a tampon in the vagina to control vaginal candidiasis. Stubborn cases of oral thrush respond to being 'painted' with the same 1% Gentian Violet. The medication is non-toxic if swallowed.

Long-lasting improvements can follow a change from a 'commercial' to a more natural/raw diet, addition of plain yogurt, and in difficult cases, dilute baking powder. I advise not to use white vinegar, first, as it can be quite painful.

*[Editor] Jonathan Wright, M.D. reports on the use of SSKI (iodine) in the treatment of recurrent vaginitis, fungal nail infections, and breast cysts in adults. "Worth review".

*[Editor] The recommendation of the Clinical Expert Series of the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 2014 is that tinidazole be reserved as the last option in treating Persistent Candidiasis Vaginitis.
