When to Call A Doctor
Call your doctor whenever you have symptoms of candidiasis if you have a chronic illness or a weakened immune system caused by cancer, HIV or medications that suppress the immune system.
Women that are otherwise healthy can self-treat for simple candida vaginitis. Call your doctor if it persists despite topical therapy or it recurs soon after treatment.
