Doctor prescribed diflucan, 2 tablets, One was taken immediately and the second tablet taken after 48 hours. After an unsuccessful result, I started taking caprylic acid, wild oregano and live probiotics, but still experiencing mild candida.

Hi Anonymous,

You should always follow up with your treating physician. When you take any kind of antibiotic it is common for a woman's flora to be knocked off balance which results in a yeast infection. Since you have added some herbal remedies also, please check with your doctor. Can you keep us posted?
