    Default medical info translation needed please

    Ive tried the usual methods of translating this diagnosis and reading the medicine advice provided but it isnt giving me any useful info that is understandable with my slightly limited Spanish when it comes to medical doings.

    Female,
    infecciosos,,, bacterias cocos moderada cantidad

    medication given,,, Fluconazol, capsula 150mg


    Id appreciate any feedback on this diagnosis from any women out there who visit the citologico here. Or any doctors who know what this is and how it is contracted.

    many thanks in advance.

    Don't panic, it isn't the clap. Read this:

    Fluconazole 150 mg

    fluconazol is a medicine given for hongos (fungus), no panic. the cause can be water, temperature, fabric and so on.
    available in all farmacias without prescription.
    the bacteria is present in moderate quantities so no worries there either.

    Tell her to eat yogurt with active cultures everyday. Helps to keep the body in balance.

    Yogurt is great......even to put it you know where. That is how I treated a yeast infection when I lived in remote Africa. Worked as good as anything a doctor would prescribe.

    if the yeast infection is candida albican type (90% - cases) then floconazol will help but if the yeast specie is not albican, then you would have to use other medication to kill the yeast.
    Now its not as simple as just talking floconazol and you are fine. You would have to change your diet and also treat your sexual partner. If he/she has it, most likely you can get reinfected again.
    The changes in diet should have to be total elimination of sugars. meaning, no rice, no starch veggies, no alcohol, no soda and no sweets. If you do now follow this diet, you maybe fighting yeast all your life.
    Common symptoms of yeast:
    pain during intercourse if you are a woman, even slight bleeding. The pain (or burning sensation) is so uncomfortable that the woman will not enjoy the sexual experience. White thick creamy (or cottage cheese) discharge. In men, the basic early stage symptoms are: burning itch that would want you to scratch till your skin breaks. rash and even open sours. It will almost resemble herpes. In men, the treatment is simple. Just go to nearest pharmacy (in DR) and buy a cream "candid" (clotrimazole) tube. apply it on the infected part for a week and you will be fine if you are in initial stages of the symptoms.
    The main factor in preventing repeated yeast infection is curbing the intake of carbs (sugars). You keep drinking alcohol and soda etc, you will have yeast infection all your life. Some times the yeast infection is triggered by consumptions of antibiotics. This disrupts the normal bacterial flora of the intestine and thus, the yeast grows out of control.
    This information of mine is not google searched, it comes from 100% personal experience living in this country. My experience says, more than 50% of the women in barrios are infected with yeast infections and maybe the equal number with vaginal infections of other kinds example: chlamydia, gonorrhea, human papillomavirus, genital warts, trichomonas, other vaginal infections, nongonoccal urethritis (NGU), chancroid, and pelvic inflammatory disease etc. Please, do not debate this with me on this. This is all coming from first hand knowledge. A month doesn't go by where I don't receive calls from visiting friends of all sorts of STD symptoms they get from being in touch with local girls.
    back on candida infection:
    If the yeast enters your blood then you may have some more advance symptoms that could be even more troublesome. Lets talk about the general symptoms.
    The person will be robbed of all energy, always tired and feeling old. aches and pains all over body, maybe conjunctivitis (red eye or watery eyes), severe heartburn and a burning desire to eat sweets example: cakes, chocolates and if you do not drink soda your thrust is not satisfied.
    I suffered from these symptoms for a long time and doctors didn't know what to do with me. I did my research and then I cured myself. I took medication to kill off the yeast first and then changed my diet (no alcohol and no sugars). Now I do consume some sugars because I am all cured but I still do not drink alcohol and no soda. Now I do not suffer from any heartburn and no red eyes. I have more energy now than ever. All symptoms have been cleared. To maintain a good flora in your intestine, take pro-biotics.
