The Effect of Sidr (Ziziphus spina-christi) Leaves Decoction to Overcome of Fluor Albus
Sidr leaves can be used for bathing by women who have completed their menstruation (HR. Muslim no. 500). This is because sidr leaves have alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, steroids, and tannins compounds which function as antibacterial and anti-fungal. Fluor albus is a disease caused by the fungus Candida albicans. We aimed to determine the effect of sidr leaf decoction to overcome fluor albus. It was a prospective and experimental study. Respondents with fluor albus received sidr leaves decoction once a day (P1), and twice a day (P2) until they recovered from fluor albus. The data obtained were analysed using the Wilcoxon test with a Confident Interval of 95%. The results showed that sidr leaf decoction could significantly reduce the level of fluor albus in respondents (p<0.05). Frequency of treatment as much as twice a day is more effective than once a day (p <0.05).
