Hi, two questions, can yeast in baked items grow back a yeast infection that is being treated? And two, i have been having recurrent yeast infections around the time of my period, i was treated with 300 mg of Apo-fluconazole for a day and i have a dose of 100 mg for the next two months, will this treat it permanently? any suggestions what to take? ## Please give ur suggestions ## No, the yeast in baked items is dead, as they have been baked and it is not a live culture. While the medication may get rid of the current infection permanently, it is always possible for you to catch another yeast infection. You may want to research how to help prevent them from occurring. Learn more Fluconazole details here. Are there any other questions I can help with? ...

Did any one while on Lyrica have problems with yeast infections? How about your tongue swelling? ## Yes. I have never had yeast infections, and since starting Lyrica, I have been battling them for 2 months. Lyrica's website mentions nothing about this issue, but I am quite positive that it is directly related. Nothing else in my life has changed (diet, exercise, spouse, etc). ## I was also having yeast infection problems on lyrica and I finally figured that lyrica was causing me to have vaginal dryness. Now I use a moisturizing vaginal suppository every night and haven't had a yeast infection since. I would first use a homepathic yeast infection treatment to treat the yeast infection and the immediatly start the moistrizing vaginal suppositories Hope this helps. ...

Minastrin & Yeast Infections
2 Replies RSS
I started taking Minastrin when Loestrin was discontinued. My doctor assured me that it was the best choice because all of the ingredients were the same. I had zero side effects on I went with it. Now every time I have intercourse with my boyfriend I get a yeast infection. Currently I have a yeast infection/vaginal irritation that WILL NOT go away. (Haven't had intercourse for 6 weeks...and yes, been tested for STIs) I've been prescribed 3 different medications and I've seen 4 different doctors. I've stopped taking Minastrin and will begin LoLoestrin soon. Has anyone else experienced a problem like this on Minastrin? And most important, did the yeast infections every go away!? ## Hello, Lindsay! How are you? Are they certain that it's a yeast infection? ... ...

pink pill for yeast infection
2 Replies RSS
Does anyone know what the pink pill is that is for yeast infection and you only have to take one.......I don't know anything more today. ## Diflucan - your doctor will know what it is and you can only get it with a prescription. Here is a web site - ## Though it can't be definitively said without knowing the markings, Diflucan would also have been my best guess, since it is available in a single dose, pink tablet for treating yeast infections. It contained the active ingredient Fluconazole, and is now also available as a generic under this name and some pharmacies even include it on their $4 discounted medications formulary. Are there any questions or comments? There are more Diflucan details available here. ...

Yeast Infection from Antibiotics
6 Replies RSS
I have taken one 150mg Fluconazole tablet to treat a yeast infection as a result of taking antibiotics. On the last night of taking my antibiotic I was in so much discomfort that I decided to take a Fluconazole to treat the thrush on the same night. I took my last antibiotic around (7pm and the Fluconazole much later at night before going to bed.) The symptoms have improved slightly within the last three days but I am still experiencing a very watery large amount of white discharge and red/soreness in that area. The Fluconazole I was prescribed had the instructions written by the pharmicist saying "Take one immediately and one in a week if required." It's been 3 days since I have taken it and was wondering whether it would be too early to try and take another as I am finding... ...

Good Day, i am suffering from a yeast infection please advise if any of the following tablets cause yeast infection Atolip Ecotrin Vectoryl plus Glucophage XR SRT Ciplavasc 5mg ## Hello, KC! How are you? If you are diabetic, that could be the reason right there. A sugar imbalance can cause them, because the yeast in your body feeds on it. It is very common for female diabetics to get them regularly. Most doctors just have them keep the medications around to treat them. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Yeast is actually a fungal infection, so it requires an antifungal medication to be eradicated. There are some that are available over the counter, such as Monistat. Learn more Monistat details here. However, if this is your first yeast infection, then you need to see your doctor to confirm that it's a yeast infection and discover the proper, safe remedy for you.

Will Nitrofur Mac Give Me A Yeast Infection
3 Replies RSS
I am prone to yeast infections from antibiotic's will nitrofur mac 100mg give me one? ## It is always possible for any antibiotic to cause a yeast infection, because they actually don't discriminate on the type of bacteria they kill, so they can eliminated good bacteria, as well as the bad. However, there is really no way to say, whether or not it will cause one to any given person, because everyone's body reacts differently to any given medication. Have you discussed your concerns with your doctor? I've only had this happen once, from Penicillin, which I was taking for a dental infection, but to be honest, if I had to take it, again, I would more than likely purchase something such as Monistat, at the same time I picked up the Penicillin prescription and keep it on hand... ...

About three months ago I had a yeast infection and the doctor gave me canex v,and the infection went away after using it.The infection is back now.what could be the corse of that and can I use canex v once again? ## Yeast infections can have various causes… Are you on any medications, or were you on an antibiotic recently? Many drugs can throw off the PH of your body and kill the good bacteria, so yeast can grow out of control. Do you swim a lot? Do you take a lot of tub baths, or soak in a hot tub? The chemicals used in pools and spas, or in tap water can also throw off the PH, killing good bacteria. Do you use douche regularly? Douche can do the same as the chemicals I mentioned above. Do you engage in intercourse regularly? If so, your partner may be infected and need to be tre... ...

I got this cream in mexico. Its Gentamycin, Clotrimazole, Betamethasone. I was wondering if I could use it to clear up my yeast infection.

Ok so i used tho medication and got what i would like to think is a yeast infection. Thick white skimpy discharge but without the smell or itch. And i went to my GYN and was testednegative for everything but e coli wwhich was why i took it. But now there is this discjarge so i am now using an over the counter 3 day monistat to hopefully clear the symptoms and side effects of the medication. If this does not work then i will talk to another GYN because frankly im not happy with the way my current doctor treats me as a patient. ## Hello, Gabby! How are you? This medication is an antibiotic and most of them can cause a yeast infection, as a side effect, as listed by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, headache and diarrhea.
