So for Candida we can use

Azoles (fluconazole) (inhibit CYP450 demethylation)

Amphotercin B (pore formation in fungal cell membrane)

Caspofungin (prevent crosslinking of beta glucans in cell wall)

or Nysatin for oral or esophageal cases (pore formation)

This question is saying that she is taking an ORAL drug to treat candida vaginitis.

Amphotercin is IV

Caspofungin is also IV

so we're left with azoles

Azoles inhibit synthesis of ergosterol by inhibiting CYP 450 that converts lanosterol to ergosterol.

qball  Nystatin does treat vaginal candidiasis but is TOPICAL. +  
thotcandy  Nystatin is NOT for esophageal candidiasis, Swish and spit, not swallow. +1  
staghorn  Me - picks Metronidazole -_- +  
alexxxx30  @thotcandy...actually you can swish and swallow nystatin for esophageal infections (per Sketchy micro candida sketch) +  
turtlepenlight  I have seen that on the wards so I hope it works! +
