Chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis: new look at old problem
Keywords:vulvovaginal candidiasis, fenticonazole, Lomexin®
The study on the effectiveness of fenticonazole treatment in 60 patients aged 18 to 45 years old with chronic recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis was performed. Women were divided into two equal groups of 30 people. The main group received fenticonazole (drug Lomexin®) for 6 days (the sexual partners of women in the same period was recommended cream fenticonazole). The comparison group was administered ketoconazole for 10 days and treatment of sexual partners according to generally accepted recommendations.
The results showed a high (96.67%) an anti-recurrence effect of Lomexin® local therapy of chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis compared with ketoconazole (80.0%). These results allow the authors to recommend the scheme of fenticonazole local therapy for chronic vulvovaginal candidiasis
