    Yeast Infection Treatment following Amoxicillin?

    Hi There!

    Last week I was taking amoxicillin twice a day to help clear up a respiratory infection. I had noticed on day 5 of my infection that I had an extremely itchy vulva/vagina and had developed a a few small paper cut- like scratches within the crease of my vulva. After using Monistat 1 on Monday, the majority of my itchiness is gone but the exterior cuts still remain. Should I see a Doc for a Diflucan pill or try to wait it out? I am almost positive this is a yeast infection considering they often come along with antibiotic use.

    Hi Antibiotics upset your natural vaginal Ph that tends to bring on BV more than a YI, but see what your doctor thinks. OK

    Have you had a cottage cheese like discharge that smell s a bit fishy? if yes then its BV. OK

        No weird smells. Just the itching and swelling with some redness.

        Hi This is from the Mayo Clinic for your symptoms.

        The most common types of vaginitis are:

        •Bacterial vaginosis, which results from a change of the normal bacteria found in your vagina to overgrowth of other organisms
        •Yeast infections, which are usually caused by a naturally occurring fungus called Candida albicans
        •Trichomoniasis, which is caused by a parasite and is commonly transmitted by sexual intercourse

        Treatment depends on the type of vaginitis you have. OK
