Hello doctor,

I think I might have an yeast infection, I have thick white discharge, itching, and today the discharge is a little greenish. What should I do?

Hi,

Welcome to iclinq.com.

If its appearance is like curd, then probably it is yeast and you can take a single dose of tablet Canestein 150 mg to treat it.

Thank you doctor,

So, now the discharge has increased and is green in color, I think I might have been trichomoniasis. What is the exact tablet dosage for that? I read about Metronidazole, but I am not sure about the dosage. Or should I first take the medicine you prescribed and check if it improves. But as it has been there since a month, I think I might need a strong dosage. Please let me know.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

If it is smelly, then probably it could be trichomoniasis and if it is curdy then candiasis. Well, you can have treatment for both, that would not be harmful. So, you take tablet Canestein 150 mg as a single dose and then tablet Metronidazole 400 mg three times a day for seven days.

Thank you doctor,

Metronidazole three times a day before or after food? And what about the Canestein, do I take it before or after food?

After food would be the best choice for both tablets.
