My mother is an diabetic patient. She is complaining of itching near vagina .Can she use Keto b ointment?

Hello, Thanks for the query. In diabetes fungal infection incidence does go up. Particularly vaginal infections tend to increase. Therefore, it is necessary to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. This helps in preventing such incidence. If already there is infection then using antifungal oral drugs and local ointment may be required. Thanks.
