[su_quote cite = Tatiana, Tver] I have a chronic thrush, which occurs due to excessive attachment to pastry and buns. Everyone knows that sugar is an excellent breeding ground for the reproduction of mushrooms, and I also know this, but I cannot do anything with myself. Recurrences of the disease occur about 2-3 times a year. For a long time saved capsules Lomeksin. The gynecologist said that if the capsule does not help the first time, in three days you can enter another one. But I always have enough of one procedure. The very next day, no itching, no discharge – no hint of candidiasis! I advise all girls and women who have the same trouble as mine. [/ su_quote]
[su_quote cite = Anastasia, 23 years old] My thrush rarely appeared, usually after treatment with antibiotics. But I have always coped with the help of probiotics, which saw to restore the intestinal microflora. During a routine clinical examination, a smear on the flora showed the presence of Candida fungi, which can cause periodic exacerbation. Immediately I turned to my doctor for consultation and treatment, as I didn’t want to bring it to the chronic form. The doctor prescribed vaginal capsules Lomeksin. There are only 2 things in the package that look like small beans. It is convenient to insert, no discomfort arises. It took me three days to get rid of the misfortune – a second smear showed the absence of pathogenic flora. Very good tool at an affordable price. [/ su_quote]
[su_quote cite = ”Julia, Orenburg”] Treated with “Lomeksinom” trichomoniasis. The course required only 2 capsules 1000 mg. The doctor warned that perhaps. We’ll have to repeat the course after 7-10 days, if one is not enough. But this was not required. At the re-examination I was told that I am healthy and can return to a full life (including sex). I had no itching or burning on the background of the reception. Therefore, I am very pleased, especially the usability. [/ su_quote]
