In the treatment of candidiasis (thrush) it is very important to properly conduct therapy. To do this, the patient must undergo treatment, the purpose of which will be the destruction of pathogenic microorganisms - Candida fungi, normalization of the digestive process, as well as strengthening the immune system. It is the last point you need to devote special attention. After all, if the immune system is weakened, then relapse may occur again after treatment. That is why need to strengthen the immune systemFor this purpose, the drug Viferon with thrush is perfect.

Efficacy for thrush
Candles "Viferon" give excellent results in the treatment of candidal colpitis. However, they should be used only after consulting with a specialized physician and passing a diagnostic examination. An immunomodulator differs from other drugs that are similar in their effects by composition, which includes a whole complex of microelements that are useful and safe for the human body. The antibacterial effect of the medication obliges the interferon present in the composition. This component has a detrimental effect on fungi, making it impossible for them to multiply and thus leaving no chance for further existence.
To quickly get rid of thrush, apply "Viferon" need, along with other antifungal medications.

How to apply "Viferon" in the treatment of thrush
When candidiasis is recommended to use "Viferon" 1-2 times a day. Candles are inserted into the vagina at the same time with an interval of 12 hours. It should be borne in mind that if you hold the suppositories in your hands, they will quickly melt, so after opening the package, you should immediately use the medicine for its intended purpose. In the vagina candle also under the action of body temperature will begin to melt and therefore flow out, so it is better to use the daily pads.
In order for the treatment of thrush to be as effective as possible and not delayed for a long time, you should reconsider your diet and lifestyle. First of all, they refuse from alcohol and energy drinks, minimize eating sweet food, yeast bread, as well as products containing large amounts of carbohydrates.
Immunity in candidiasis
Natural (non-specific) protective factors of the body and specific immunity are involved in protecting our body against the fungus.
Factors of nonspecific immunity:
- intact skin and mucous membranes,
- secrets covering epithelial cells and preventing contact with the fungus: saliva, vaginal secretions, tears,
- secretory immunoglobulin A,
- biologically active substances produced in our body and constantly present in the blood, on the surface of the skin and mucous membranes: in the mouth, in the vagina. These include lactoferrin, lysozyme, transferrin, acute phase proteins, etc.,
- exfoliated cells of the surface layer of the epithelium,
- normal microflora of the vagina, oral cavity, intestines, etc.,
- fungus competition for nutrients with normal microflora,
- acidic (pH) of the vagina, alkaline environment of the mouth,
- hormonal balance.
A large role in the destruction of candidates belongs to blood cells phagocytes (neutrophils and macrophages). Having found a fungus, they swallow it and destroy it, while using active forms of oxygen, nitric oxide, and special enzymes. And then they present the antigens of the fungus to recognize lymphocytes.
Phagocytes absorb iron needed for life Candid. Therefore, phagocytes compete with the fungus for iron. This is another factor that violates their livelihoods.
Specific immunity is represented by lymphocytes.
Allocate humoral immunity. It is represented by B lymphocytes. Their tasks include the synthesis of immunoglobulins - proteins that block the candida receptors and thereby disrupt the processes of its vital activity.
Cellular immunity. It is represented by T-lymphocytes. Their tasks include the activation of B-lymphocytes, as well as the direct destruction of the fungus.
Candida does not develop strong immunity. This means that after the destruction of the fungus immunity is not preserved.
With thrush, the first thing to do is to strengthen the immune system. For this:
- observe the regime of work and rest,
- take a walk in the fresh air
- eat right: you need to eliminate carbohydrates and sweets, but vegetables and fruits are welcome,
- observe personal hygiene. Give up hygiene products with antibacterial and antiseptic properties,
- do not often use gaskets and tampons, especially flavored,
- don't wear synthetics, tight clothes,
- stop smoking and alcohol,
Immunomodulators for thrush
Immunomodulators are a group of drugs that directly act on the immune system and have a regulating effect on it.
When fungal diseases immunomodulatory:
- Enhance the activity of enzymes involved in the phagocytosis process,
- Stimulate a respiratory burst (the formation of reactive oxygen species that are detrimental to cells, including Candida),
- Normalize cellular immunity, in particular the work of T-lymphocytes,
- Strengthen the factors of nonspecific resistance of the body,
- Enhances the synthesis of secretory immunoglobulin A in epithelial cells.
A fungal infection damages epithelial cells and interferes with the synthesis of its own interferons, therefore, preparations containing interferon perform a replacement function.
Viferon treat immunomodulators. It is available in the form of a gel, ointment, candles. Viferon candles prescribed rectally.
Viferon contains the active substance alpha-2b human recombinant interferon. Interferon is a protein produced in the body by cells of the immune system in response to the invasion of a virus. Recombinant, because it is produced by the bacterium Escherichia coli, the DNA of which contains the human interferon gene.
Vitamin C, E is used as auxiliary substances, which have been shown to stabilize interferon and increase its effectiveness.
- antiviral effect. The drug is active in influenza, herpes, HPV infections, viral hepatitis,
- immunomodulatory: enhances phagocytosis, activates the cells of the immune system: lymphocytes and NK cells, enhances the formation of antibodies,
- antiproliferative - prevents cell division. Given this property of interferon, they are treated with cancer,
- antibacterial: contributes to the destruction of staphylococci, chlamydia, mycoplasma, toxoplasma, as well as candida fungi - causing thrush,
- stimulates cellular immunity, enhancing the activity of lymphocytes.
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid and vitamin E or tocopherol acetate used in Viferon have:
antioxidant action - protects the body's cells from damage by active forms of oxygen,
- regenerative action - contribute to the restoration of damaged cells,
- membrane stabilizing action - restore the structure and integrity of the cytoplasmic membrane of the cell.
All this contributes to the rapid extinction of the inflammatory reaction and its unpleasant symptoms: redness, itching, burning, pain, swelling and dysfunction.
In pregnancy, according to the instructions allowed to use the drug from the 14th week. During breastfeeding, there are no restrictions on taking Viferon.
However, interferon alpha-2b, which is part of Viferon, is a serious drug and you should not forget that it can have side effects, although when administered topically as an ointment, gel or suppository, their risk is minimal. The low probability of side effects for the drug Viferon is explained by a decrease in the dose of the active substance (interferon).
- gastrointestinal tract: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
- cardiovascular system: arterial hypertension and hypotension, arrhythmia,
- skin: rash, herpes, furunculosis, dryness,
- blood - reducing the level of lymphocytes, platelets, hemoglobin,
- eye - blurred vision, blindness,
- CNS: depression,
- renal dysfunction,
- flu-like syndrome: fever, muscle aches, headache.
The price of Viferon varies widely and depends both on the form of release, the dosage of interferon and the pharmacy, the region.
Viferon ointment can be purchased for 190-800 rubles.
- Viveron gel for 165 - 750 rubles.
- Viferon rectal candles 150,000 IU - 270-1000 rubles.
- Viferon rectal candles 500,000 IU - 390-1500 rubles.
- Viferon rectal suppositories 1000 000 IU - 570-2100 rubles.

Focus on reviews
As with any other drug, on Viferon you can find both positive and negative reviews. Taking the drug, it should be remembered that the effectiveness largely depends on the time of the start of treatment, compliance with the scheme, the selected dosage and, of course, the individual characteristics of the organism.
And when deciding to buy, or not, you need to listen not to the advice and feedback of others, but to the specific data of the research. And they indicate that interferon alpha 2b has a rather high efficiency in the complex therapy of viral, bacterial and fungal diseases.

Localization of thrush and treatment with Viferon
Mushrooms of the genus Candida in a normal state inhabit the human body and do not require any treatment. Their growth is constrained by general and local immunity, based on the functioning of beneficial microorganisms. Under the influence of negative factors, both internal and external protective functions are reduced. Due to the suppression of immunity, the growth of opportunistic microorganisms begins.
Despite the fact that thrush is not a serious threat to health, the disease delivers considerable discomfort to the patient, regardless of the place of localization. Therefore, when manifestations of vaginal candidiasis or the occurrence of infection in other places should be corrected. Antiviral and immunomodulatory therapy, which helps the body recover its strength to combat pathological processes, is an essential part of the treatment of thrush. One of the most popular drugs in this group is Viferon.
Viferon suppositories for thrush are administered to women and men for rectal use. For children, the drug is prescribed in individual dosage. Viferon gel and ointment are used for external application to the skin or mucous membranes. Together with the immunomodulator, the treatment of thrush is carried out with antifungal drugs for local and oral administration, and in severe cases, such agents are administered intravenously.
Viferon for candidiasis in women and men
Candles are used as an adjunct to the treatment of acute thrush. in women, 1 suppository every 12 hours. A single dose of the drug is 500,000 IU. It is necessary to use an immunomodulator from 5 to 10 days. Men with fungal balanitis or balanoposthitis appointed Viferon or its analogue - Genferon. The scheme of use of the drug is the same as for thrush in women. Viferon can be replaced by Genferon and for women, leading the last resort by the vaginal route.
For women, do not underestimate the danger of a disease such as thrush in the vagina. Pathology itself is not a threat. However, the pathogen can provoke the addition of more serious infections, lead to hormonal imbalance and infertility. It is especially undesirable to have thrush for pregnant women. The growth of conditionally pathogenic microorganisms in them is caused by a decrease in immunity and hormonal changes, and the drug Viferon is a stimulant. Therefore, even the use of candles alone can help the body cope with the pathology itself.
Treatment of thrush Viferon in the form of candles during pregnancy is permissible after 14 weeks. If this is necessary, then in the early stages you can apply a gel or ointment: apply a thin layer 3-5 times a day on a pea with a diameter of 1 cm. External use of Viferon for pregnant women should not exceed 5 days.
In pediatric practice
In children of the first year of life, thrush in the mouth occurs quite often, which is why the baby’s appetite decreases and sleep is disturbed. In this case, the use of standard antifungal medications for newborns is undesirable, and treatment should be carried out.
Therefore, to eliminate the infection, pediatricians prefer to prescribe Viferon:
- rectal administration involves the use of suppositories of 150,000 IU in the morning and evening after bowel emptying for 10 days,
- local application of medication involves the use of a pea-sized gel up to 5 times a day after meals for 5 days.
If the child is breastfed, then his mother should also be treated with Viferon gel nipples. When baby feeds from a bottle, it is necessary to sterilize them before each feeding.
Contraindications and adverse reactions
When treating candida Viferon, most patients feel good. The drug is contraindicated in persons with intolerance to the active component, which is human recombinant interferon. Rectal suppositories are not intended for pregnant women in the first trimester., and the ointment is not used in children up to a year even with thrush.
During treatment, Viferon may cause an allergic reaction. When expressed manifestations should stop using the drug and consult a doctor for a decision on the tactics of further action. Applying ointment and gel on the oral mucosa and genital tract can cause short-term burning or itching. These symptoms pass on their own and do not require cessation of immunomodulatory therapy. This reaction is due to the presence of a wound surface under a whitish bloom. As soon as it is restored, unpleasant manifestations will cease to occur.
The mechanism of action of the drug
The action of Viferon in thrush caused by the components that are part of it. Human recombinant interferon has a beneficial effect on systemic and local immunity. The drug increases the level of leukocytes in the blood, so that protective cells can actively destroy the infectious agent.
The antiviral effect is due to the suppression of DNA and RNA of conditionally pathogenic and pathogenic microorganisms. At the same time, the drug itself does not interact with the causative agent of thrush. Promoted immunity becomes the starting point for the restoration of body resistance, as a result of which the microflora of the mucous membrane normalizes. Membrane stabilizing and regenerating effect of Viferon helps to restore damaged cells. Taken together, the work of the active component leads to the suppression of the colonies of yeast-like fungi.
Gel and ointment Viferon have a direct impact on the site of infection. When processing the genital tract increases the resistance of this area. The cumulative use of antifungal drugs with immunomodulator Viferon in women can not only get rid of thrush, but also prevent the development of bacterial vaginosis.

Thrush in the 21st century becomes a real problem. Her symptoms experienced 2 out of 3 women. At the same time, every 3 patients have relapses of the disease (repeated cases).
This circumstance forces to use for the treatment of candidiasis not only antifungal drugs, but also drugs that stimulate the immune system. Therefore, immunomodulators, in particular Viferon, as their representative, are prescribed from thrush in complex treatment with antifungal drugs.
The fact is that the fungus candida, which causes thrush, belongs to the conditionally pathogenic microflora. It normally coexists in our body along with the resident (normal) microflora. The disease occurs in the case of:
- changes in the biocenosis, i.e. reduce the number of lactobacilli of the vagina, changes in the flora in the mouth, on the skin, etc.
- hormonal imbalance. During pregnancy, when taking contraceptive hormonal pills, there is a decrease in the body's immune defense. This is a factor contributing to the reproduction of candid.
- weakening of immunity. Moreover, in protecting against thrush an important role belongs to the local immunity of the vagina, oral cavity, skin, etc.
Drugs for the treatment of inflammation in gynecology
Many women have severe pains during their periods, which cause discomfort and disability. However, there are such moments when there are spasms that are not associated with critical days at all, this indicates the appearance of inflammatory processes in the genitals.
Anti-inflammatory drugs in gynecology are used only after consulting and diagnosing an obstetrician-gynecologist. As a rule, in the event of pain, women are recommended anti-inflammatory suppositories, injections, tablets. Sometimes women may be given decoctions, herbal teas as prevention.
Each treatment regimen has its flaws, so it must be prescribed individually, after all tests and diagnostics have been performed.
Suppositories are one of the most popular drugs in gynecology. This type of drug has a fast effect and small size. The main specificity of suppositories is a long shelf life not only in the refrigerator, but also indoors, as well as a quick dissolution at body temperature.
By the method of administration, suppositories are classified as:
- Rectal suppositories are used to enter the rectum. Their shape may be different.
- Vaginal suppositories suppositories are oval, round, cone-shaped.
- Stick candles should be used for insertion into the ureter and cervix. They have a small size of 1-3 mm and a thin rod-shaped form.
The main quality of suppositories is their dissolution, as well as the penetration of active substances into the bloodstream and the elimination of the source of inflammation. This form should be used in diseases of the digestive tract, as well as in chronic diseases (duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer, diarrhea, gastritis), because the candles do not fall into the stomach and do not disintegrate in the liver.
Vaginal suppositories act rapidly on the symptoms of the disease and eliminate inflammation. They are easy to use and do not cause allergic diseases, therefore they are more often used in gynecology.
Anti-inflammatory candles for diseases of the genital organs are prescribed for colpitis, vaginitis, fungal and venereal diseases. The effect of candles is the penetration of the active components into the inflammatory focus, the effect on pathogenic bacteria that cause pain. They must be used only with the permission of the gynecologist and are discharged only taking into account the microflora of the vagina.
The most popular candles in gynecology
What suppositories are most relevant in gynecology:
What suppositories are recommended to take for genital herpes, colpitis, gardnerelleze:
- "Ginalgin" is recommended to be taken within two weeks.
- "Trichopol" must be taken in the evening and in the morning for up to two weeks.

When is the drug prescribed?
Candles Hexicon are prescribed to treat many diseases in women:

Suppositories can be used as a means of emergency protection against genital infections in women. For this candle is inserted into the vagina after unprotected contraceptive sex. It will protect against many sexually transmitted diseases.
The instruction states that suppositories can be used in the treatment of fungal infections in combination with other drugs. This means that in relation to candida drug is ineffective. But doctors continue to prescribe Hexicon for thrush in the acute stage, for good reason.
Pros and cons of the treatment of candidiasis medication
It is recommended to take Hexicon from thrush for several reasons:
- Keeps useful properties during menstruation, which allows you to get rid of the infection, without waiting for the end of menstruation.
- After injection and dissolution, it remains on the vaginal mucosa in women for a long time, exerting a healing effect.

Therefore, to eliminate candidiasis suppositories do not become a panacea. They can be taken only in combination with antifungal agents.
How to take the drug for candidiasis
Hexicon is prescribed by gynecologists in combination with antifungal agents. Candles allow you to restore the natural flora of the vagina in women, affecting microorganisms. During treatment, antifungal therapy is carried out with drugs such as Fluconazole, Diflucan, etc. Hexion crosses the infection, suppressing the action of pathogens and exerting anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effect on the mucosa.
Comprehensive treatment is prescribed by a gynecologist after a visual examination of the vaginal mucosa and smear examinations. Self-treatment is unacceptable in order to preserve women's health and reproductive function.
Suppositories are used according to the rules:
- A woman takes a horizontal position and gently inserts a candle into the vagina to the depth of the finger. Under the influence of body temperature, the drug dissolves, enveloping the mucous membrane.
- For women with thrush, 2 candles are prescribed per day. The course of treatment is from 7 to 10 days. An increase in the duration of treatment is possible after an examination by a gynecologist.
- During pregnancy, the first 3 days are used for 2 candles, the next 4-7 days for 1 suppository.
- For prophylaxis, a seven-day course of 1 candle per day is prescribed.
Special instructions for women
- After the course of treatment, it will be necessary to repeat the analysis to study the dynamics of the disease. If the fungal flora is present in the vagina, then treatment needs to be adjusted.
- In pregnancy, it is more expedient to take funds for the treatment of thrush without the use of additional drugs. For example, Terzhinan is effective, does not require additional drugs to combat fungi
- Hexion is not canceled during menstruation.
- Additional administration of a candle is indicated after sexual contact without a remedy, if the state of the partner's genitals remains in doubt.

One of the unpleasant sexually transmitted infections is ureaplasma, an intracellular microorganism that can exist in the body of every person. But in the presence of some factors it can begin to multiply rapidly and lead to inflammation of the urinary tract.
- When do you need treatment?
- The most effective antibiotics
- Candle treatment
- Additional treatment
There is an opinion that it is not necessary to treat ureaplasmosis, since the causative agents of the disease are present in everyone in the body. But, when the tests show a quantitative deviation from the norm, treatment of ureaplasma should be started immediately.
What will happen if ureaplasmosis is not treated? First of all, chronic inflammation of the vaginal mucosa will begin, which can lead to disruption of microflora and reproduction of various pathogenic microorganisms. Ureaplasma in women provokes inflammation of the cervix, which can lead to erosion and cause spontaneous abortion. Very often, women infected with this infection suffer from temporary infertility, which disappears only after complete recovery.
There are many drugs for ureaplasma that can be bought at a pharmacy without a doctor's prescription. But still it is not recommended to engage in self-treatment, otherwise the disease may take a chronic form and, in order to get rid of ureaplasma, it will take a lot of time and money.

It is also advisable to conduct research on the sensitivity of ureaplasma to antibiotics in order to immediately select the appropriate tool.
