Methods: A double blind randomized clinical trial was carried out on 80 married women (20-45 years old) having chronic vaginal Candidiasis. The patients were divided in to two groups (40 in each). The first groups received two doses of fluconazole at two different timing (Zero and 72 hours) along with clotrimazole vaginal cream 1% ( for 7 days ). The second group recived only two doses of fluconazole (Zero time and 72 hours later). Then the patients were examined at 2 and 6 weeks after the treatment. Results: The signs and symptoms of disease (itching, erythema, excoriation, edema and fissure) in both groups were significantly decreased after two weeks of the treatment (P = 0.00).
