Candida is a type of yeast that lives in everyone's body. It is usually harmless, but it can cause an infection if the balance of bacteria in your vagina gets upset.
Non-albicans candida is a type of candida that is resistant to traditional antifungal treatments. If you have a non-albicans candida infection, your doctor may recommend a different treatment plan.
Some of the most common treatments for non-albicans candidiasis include:
- Prescription antifungal medications
- Nonprescription antifungal medications
- natural remedies, such as coconut oil or garlic
