@orchidaloha:  Ahh! I just finished a round of antibiotics for an ear infection and got the dreaded yeast infection as well. I’ve only ever had a few yeast infections before, and I tried an OTC treatment the first time and didn’t get any relief. I called my Dr. and just said I got a yeast infection from the meds and she called in some fluconazole/diflucan to the pharmacy for me! So that’s what I do from now on and they don’t even need me to come in.. they just call it in for me and it works wonderfully. It’s two pills – you take the first one, then the second one a week later if necessary. I never need the second one and feel relief that first day after taking it! Might call and see what they say.. hope you feel better soon!

Most docs will call in diflucan for you if you call and tell them you were on antibiotics. One or two doses usually does it.

I would just call your doctor, (or their after hours line) they should be able to call you in a script. This is a very common problem with some women on antibiotics, actually I’m surprised your doc didn’t just prescribe you to begin with. It’s a one pill fix, so it’s easy.

Eat lots of yogurt in the mean time. Hope you feel better soon.

Lots of water, no carbs or sugar for a while, lots of veggies especially – that should help keep things calm.

But if it’s from antibiotics, it may be worth it to check into the prescription PP was talking about.

@orchidaloha:  You can get probiotics as a powder too.  Most supplement stores carry them in a fridge.

I always have my doctor call in diflucan at the same time. Its a big relief knowing I will not be miserable while trying to make something else better.
