Treatment off vulvovaginal candidal infection with miconazole-coated tampons.
  1. N A Bergstein


    In an evaluation of three different treatment regimens miconazole-coated tampons proved to be effective for the relief of vulvovaginal candidal infection. A mycological and clinical cure rate of about 93% was achieved in patients treated with one tampon twice daily (up to a total of 15 tampons); 61% of patients were mycologically cured with a regimen of one tampon daily for only five days. Reinfection rates were less than 4% with all three regimens. The tampons were well accepted by all the patients.
