Effect of simultaneous oral and vaginal treatment on the rate of cure and relapse in vaginal candidosis.
  1. J D Milne,

    One hundred patients with vulvovaginal candidosis were entered in a double-blind trial to compare the effect of six days' local treatment with clotrimazole with that of the same treatment plus 10 days' oral treatment with nystatin. No significant differences were detected in the rate of cure or relapse between the treatment groups. The cure rate was lowest and the relapse rate highest in patients in whom vaginal candidosis had last been diagnosed during the preceding 12 months.
