One of the difficulties diabetic women face is recurrent yeast infection of the vulva
and vagina.The substantial increase in the incidence of vulvovaginal candidiasis
especially in diabetic women demands prompt treatment that would restore the
normal vaginal flora and also keep the blood sugar levels in check. Homoeopathy, a
safe alternative method, based on the idea of individualization uses a holistic
approach towards these cases. Being a safe and cost-friendly intervention, it not
only relieves the complaints of the individuals but also help them boost up their selfesteem.
This study aims at exploring the effectiveness of Homoeopathic medicines in
vulvovaginal candidiasis in women with type II Diabetes mellitus. In this study, 15
women with Candidiasis and type II Diabetes mellitus selected from SKHMCH
OPD and IPD and rural centers, were prescribed with the homoeopathic similimum
after thorough case taking and analyzing the investigation reports. Follow ups were
taken every month for three months and the improvement of the cases were
assessed based on the signs, symptoms and investigation reports. After the
administration of the Homoeopathic similimum, notable improvement was elicited
in the signs and symptoms and also the lab reports. Mercurius solubilis was noted to be
the most effectively used medicine and 200 th potency was noticed as the most
frequently used potency.
