Candles from thrush


Candles from thrush The most convenient way of local treatment of vaginal candidiasis in women are candles. The main advantages of this method of treatment of candidiasis are:

  • easy introduction of the suppository inside the vagina and high effectiveness of antifungal drugs, due to its deep penetration into the mucous membrane of the female genital tract;
  • the rapid elimination of unpleasant symptoms (discomfort, itching, burning, pain during sexual intercourse and cheesy discharge) as a result of the destruction of the causative agent of the infectious process and the elimination of inflammation;
  • the possibility of using certain types of candles for thrush in pregnant women and breastfeeding, which is associated with its targeted antifungal and minimal systemic effects on the body of the expectant mother and fetus.

To date, the domestic pharmacy network offers a wide range of various antifungal vaginal suppositories for the local treatment of thrush, which are used for monotherapy of acute candidiasis and are part of combination therapy with oral medicines for chronic or recurrent thrush, as well as for severe forms of candidiasis. But it is important to remember that this is a very insidious and difficult to treat disease and only a doctor can determine which candles for thrush will be most effective in each case. This is due to the rapid development of drug resistance (resistance) in fungal agents, so before starting treatment you should undergo a full examination, which will help the specialist to determine the type of pathogen, the sensitivity of fungi and the resistance of this pathogen based on the result of bacterial culture. The doctor will help determine predisposing factors that are specific to a particular patient and often contribute to the development and progression of candidiasis (hormonal imbalance, diet, concomitant somatic diseases, simultaneous administration of antifungal suppositories with other drugs), and their elimination is often an additional positive aspect in the treatment of candidiasis.

It is also important to strictly adhere to the treatment regimens and dosages of antifungal drugs prescribed by the doctor - often reducing the doses of these drugs often leads to the activation of Candida multiplication and progression of the inflammatory process or the formation of L - forms resistant to most antifungal drugs.

Nowadays, multiple pathogens of sexually transmitted infections ( mycoplasmosis , chlamydia , gonorrhea , trichomoniasis) and / or the development of bacterial vaginosis caused by E. coli, Proteus, Klebsiela, or the development of gardnerellosis often occur. Therefore, depending on the intensity of the symptoms of the inflammatory process, the treatment differs by the course of therapy and the type of suppositories or their combined use with oral antifungal drugs or the addition of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Important points in the treatment of candidiasis is the simultaneous treatment of the sexual partner, who in most cases is an asymptomatic carrier of infectious agents and re-infect their partner after the successful treatment of thrush (ping-pong effect).

During therapy with vaginal suppositories from thrush it is necessary to refuse sexual intercourse or use condoms. And also not wear tight and / or synthetic underwear, follow the rules of intimate hygiene with the daily change of towels and linen, do not use flavored or chemized intimate hygiene products, pads and toilet paper, which worsens the patient's condition and contributes to the progression of inflammation.

It is important to use high-quality drugs and prior to their use specify the expiration date, possible side effects, contraindications, the composition of this type of candles from thrush (to exclude individual intolerance to the main or auxiliary components of the suppository).

Many patients actively practice various douches for thrush in most cases without a doctor's prescription, which violates the vaginal microflora and provokes the further progression of the disease.

It is important to remember that any manifestations of self-treatment in the development of this pathology will only lead to negative consequences:

  • the development of the resistance of fungi and the development of chronic recurrent candidiasis;
  • impaired local immunity of the mucous genital tract;
  • vaginal dysbiosis;
  • the progression of inflammation and the development of generalization of the process with foci in the intestine, oral cavity and other organs);
  • the addition of other pathogenic pathogens (microorganisms, viruses, protozoa) or specific inflammatory processes;
  • hormonal disorders;
  • progression of concomitant somatic diseases.

Candles for the treatment of thrush are divided:

  • depending on their composition and the main active ingredient (candles with fluconazole, nystatin, clotrimazole);
  • complex candles from thrush:

- Polygynax (neomycin, nystatin, polymyxin B)

- Terzhinan (ternidazole, prednisone, neomycin, nystatin);

  • depending on the contingent of patients:

a) candles allowed for use in pregnant women and nursing;

b) children's vaginal candles;

c) for patients with various diseases of internal organs.

Candles for thrush with natamycin

(Pimafutsin, Primafungin, Natamycin)

These are modern antifungal vaginal suppositories with the main active component of the macrolide antibiotic of the polyene series - natamycin. The antifungal activity of these suppositories of Primafungin, Pimafucin and Natanomycin is due to the active disruption of metabolic processes in the cell membranes of yeast fungi, which inhibits their growth and leads to the destruction of the cell walls of pathogenic microorganisms.

Pimafucin is available in a convenient dosage form in the form of vaginal suppositories that act locally in the female genital tract. It is not contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation. But with prolonged and uncontrolled use of this drug, as well as other antibacterial drugs, the normal microflora of the vagina and the development of dysbacteriosis are possible. Therefore, for effective treatment of candidiasis, it is necessary to adhere to the treatment regimens, observing the dose, the duration of therapy and the frequency of administration.

In candidal vulvitis, vaginitis and vulvovaginitis, one suppository is administered in a course of three to six days. Suppositories are administered in the supine position, as deep as possible into the vagina at night.

When a relapsing course of pathological processes, the causative agent of which is Candida albicans, an additional drug is prescribed with natanomycin orally for the rehabilitation of the source of infection in the intestine and other organs. For the treatment or prevention of candidiasis in a partner, use the drug with natanomycin in the form of a cream (Pimafucin, Natanomycin).

Contraindications to the use of vaginal suppositories are considered to be intolerant to macrolide antibiotics or natamycin or other auxiliary components of suppositories (adipic acid, tallow, sorbitol).

Sometimes (in the first days of use of the drug) side effects occur - nausea and diarrhea, which disappear on their own.

This drug in candles is allowed to use in children for the treatment of thrush (vulvitis and vulvovaginitis) - the dose and frequency of use as prescribed by a doctor.

Thrush candles with clotrimazole

(Clotrimazole, Candide B6, Candibene, Antifungol, Candizol, Kanesten, Yenamazole 100)

Antifungal drugs for intravaginal use with an active active ingredient from the group of imidazole derivatives - clotrimazole. Under the influence of this drug, the structure and properties of the cell membrane of yeast-like fungi change, causing the development of thrush, which leads to the death of the pathogen. The wide spectrum of action of these vaginal suppositories is used to treat the vaginal inflammatory processes that are caused by several pathogenic pathogens or chronic forms of thrush (candidal vulvitis, vulvovaginitis), and also for the rehabilitation of the birth canal of women before childbirth.

To prevent recurrence of thrush, it is necessary to treat the genital parterre using clotrimazole cream.

Often, to increase the effectiveness of treatment of severe thrush, the use of suppositories is combined with the simultaneous administration of a cream, solution or ointment with clotrimazole.

With trichomoniasis, the use of vaginal suppositories with clotrimazole and metronidazole is used.

The drug is contraindicated for use:

  • in case of hypersensitivity to clotrimazole or auxiliary components of vaginal suppositories;
  • in the menstrual period;
  • in the initial stages of pregnancy.

Side effects may manifest as:

  • local manifestations in the form of hyperemia, itching, burning or swelling of the mucous membrane, vaginal discharge and discomfort during sexual intercourse;
  • allergic reactions;
  • systemic disorders - abdominal pain, frequent urination, headache).

The effectiveness of intravaginal suppositories with clotrimazole decreases with simultaneous use of drugs with nystatin, amphotericin B and natamycin for the qualitative treatment of candidiasis while the simultaneous use of these drugs requires dose adjustment and duration of use of drugs.

Intravaginal suppositories with fluconazole

(Diflucan, Fluconazole, Flucostat, Mikosist, Forkan, Futsis, Tsiskan, Flyusak, Fungolon, Flukonorm Funzol, Nofung, Medaflukon)

These are vaginal suppositories for treating thrush caused by yeast-like fungi (Microsporum, Candida and Trichophyton).

Fluconazole is a triazole antifungal drug. Its mechanism of action is based on a violation of the synthesis of styrenes in the cells of fungi, destroying them and causing their death.

Side effects when using vaginal suppositories with fluconazole can occur: spastic abdominal pain, flatulence (increased gas formation), migraine headaches, lethargy, impaired coordination, changes in peripheral blood (thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, agranulocytosis). All these manifestations occur when the daily dose is exceeded, prolonged and uncontrolled use of suppositories or in patients with concomitant somatic pathology, elderly patients and in children.

Medication with fluconazole is contraindicated:

  • with individual intolerance to the components of the candles;
  • during pregnancy in any period;
  • during lactation (due to the possible manifestation of side effects in a baby in the form of pronounced flatulence, anxiety, lethargy and changes in peripheral blood);
  • children under the age of three;
  • with simultaneous use with astemizole, cisapride and terfenadine;
  • with diseases of the heart and blood vessels with atrial fibrillation and ventricular flutter.

With caution, these intravaginal drugs are prescribed for functional and organic diseases of the liver and gallbladder (can cause hyperbilirubinemia, progression of hepatitis and development of jaundice), for autoimmune diseases, in elderly and senile age.

Candles for thrush with nystatin

(Nystatin, Polygynax, McMiror complex, Terzhinan)

This drug belongs to antifungal substances, which has a fungistatic effect in relation to yeast-like fungi of the genus Candida. These are the most effective candles for chronic forms of candidiasis, due to the fact that fungi rarely produce resistance to the main components of vaginal candles, which act locally on the vaginal mucosa. Prolonged use of drugs with nystatin can lead to violations of the beneficial microflora of the vagina and dysbacteriosis can develop. Basically, these drugs are well tolerated by all patients and have no side effects.

Candles with nystatin contraindicated:

  • with individual intolerance to the components of the candles (especially those with complex composition);
  • during pregnancy (due to the possible development of malformations in the fetus with prolonged local use, or when using complex drugs in early pregnancy (Terzhinan) may cause changes in hormonal levels);
  • in diseases of the digestive tract.

Ketoconazole Candles

(Livarol, Ketoconazole)

These antifungal suppositories are for topical use with ketonazole, a preparation from the group of imidazoldioxolan derivatives. It has a fungistatic and fungicidal effect, which consists in changing the lipid composition of the membrane of fungi with inhibition of ergosterol biosynthesis.

Candles with ketonazole are prescribed only after twelve weeks of pregnancy, due to the fact that they can cause pathological changes in the fetus of unformed organs and organ systems.

The course of treatment can last from three to ten days - the duration of treatment depends on the complexity of the pathological process.

Side effects are rare, but may manifest as dizziness, itching, irritation, burning in the vagina, rash, or yellow discharge from the patient's genital tract.

It is also effective against staphylococci and streptococci and can be used on vaginitis, vulvitis and vulvovaginitis, which are caused by fungal-bacterial associations.

Thrush suppositories containing iodine

(Betadine, Iodoxide, Povidone-Iodine)

These are suppositories with pronounced antiseptic properties and a broad spectrum of antimicrobial action against bacteria, fungi of the genus Candida, protozoa and viruses. Upon contact with the mucous membranes during the dissolution of the suppositories, iodine is absorbed gradually, providing an effective antimicrobial effect, but is practically not absorbed into the systemic circulation.

These drugs are widely used in acute and chronic vaginitis caused by mixed flora, vaginal infections after treatment with antibiotics or steroid hormonal drugs and as prophylactic agents before diagnostic procedures or surgical interventions in the vagina.

Contraindications to the use of this group of intravaginal candles are:

  • thyroid adenoma;
  • thyrotoxicosis;
  • individual intolerance to iodine preparations or suppository auxiliary components;
  • renal failure;
  • pregnancy and lactation.

Side effects are manifested in the form of allergic reactions or local hyperemia. These candles can be used during menstruation.

Candles sertaconazole (Zalain)

Sertaconazole is an effective antifungal agent derived from benzothiophene and imidazole. It has an active fungicidal and fungistatic action - inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol and increasing the permeability of the cell membrane of the fungus, which leads to the death of the pathogenic agent - the fungus or microorganism. Candles are used in the treatment of vaginosis caused by fungi of the genus Candida and gram-positive bacteria (strepto - and staphylococci).

Allowed for use during menstruation. During pregnancy and lactation, it can be prescribed only under the constant supervision of a physician with vital indications, due to the fact that studies of this drug have not been conducted.

Contraindications to the use of vaginal suppositories are hypersensitivity to their main or auxiliary components.

Side effects - itching and burning in the vagina, allergic reactions.

It is recommended to wash the external genitalia with a neutral soap before use.

Mary McQuaid: Thanks for the advice about pets. My cat had an open wound that wouldn't heal on her throat. I applied helichrysum diluted in coconut oil twice a day for two months and it healed completely. Just make sure it is well diluted. Helichrysum has a mild smell but it is very strong. Always dilute properly.

SEBASTION HAWK: Also, I would like to know the same for linalool, also. How much would be too much for those applications?  I have extensively looked for potential injury from all three, and, cannot find much, but, I know that if too much is inhaled, it can have negative effects on the respiratory system, including,  pneumonitis. I unfortunately smoke tobacco, and, have also thought about putting a few drops in my organic tobacco- it is certified organic- no additives or pesticides, but, I know that it is still harmful because of nicotine...would it be ok to put either 3 into my tobacco, and, how much would be safe?

SEBASTION HAWK: How much alpha and beta pinene would you recommend using in a tablespoon of coconut oil for dermal application? How much would you recommend adding to a liter of water for inhalation for sinusitis and congestion? Looking at the densities, it appears that each drop would be about 43 mg...is this accurate? And, how many drops should I use? Also, I would like to know the same for linalool, also. How much would be too much for those applications?

Lavender Fields: He says: OREGANO & CINNAMON OIL should be used with a CARRIER OIL when applied to the skin (due to their peppery burning effect on direct skin). Good to know 😕

Tonji Williams: Hello. I am just learning about the application of essential oils to my navel. What are the best and safest oils to apply directly to my belly button as an adult? Many thanks!
