Abstract

The article describes modern views on the problem of vulvovaginal candidiasis.
Study of the ketoconazole (Livarol) effectiveness in the treatment and prevention of vulvovaginal candidiasis in women of reproductive age was performed.
Vaginal suppository Livarol (400 mg) was administered 28 women once a day for 10 days for the treatment of vaginal candidiasis (study group). Also Vaginal suppository Livarol (400 mg) was administered once a day for 10 days for 20 women without vulvovaginal candidiasis on the background of antibiotic treatment of sexual transmitted infections to prevent the development of candidiasis infection (comparison group).
The effectiveness of the drug Livarol in the form of vaginal suppositories is demonstrated in treatment and prevention of vulvovaginal candidiasis. The presence of high-performance component of the drug – ketoconazole and polyethylene oxide bases determine the most widely use of Livarol by women with vulvovaginal candidiasis.
