AHHHHH!!!! I think I have a yeast infection!!!!.....

I was on Cerfuroxime (ceftin) for 18 days and I think it gave me a yeast infection! I am itching like crazy (in you know where). I called the docs office and was told to try a over the counter medication.....which one should I try?
This really stinks I was also told to up my i flora to 4 caps a day.

Itching like crazy over here, and not liking it!

I have had really good luck with a homeopathic remedy called AZO Yeast. You can probably find retailers on the net. Good luck- I know first hand how awful they can be.

3love,
I use vitamin E I broke open a capsule and applied it to the area it helped with the itching after a couple of applications. I also had burning and the instant relief i found was acidopholis with raw yogurt applied to the area soothed it. Also sit baths with apple cider vinager. Hope it gets better, I know the feeling and its yuky.

Try monistat and also AZO Yeast. You can take that every day to prevent yeast infections, too.

Feel better!

Thanks ladies. I actually went to the pharmacy and purchased monistat 7.
I feel bette than yesterday, that's for sure!

Aqua, how are you doing with your treatment? See any difference? Are you still on orals? How is your little bro doing?

P.S...Were you and your bro considered positive according to IgeneX and CDC cirteria? Or just IgeneX?

Later,
J

Hi,

Just what people need, as if the Lyme itself wasn't enough!

For yeast, the best otc product I have found is the 7-day CVS brand version of monstat, or monastat-7 itself. The house brand is cheaper by a couple bucks, and it's the same active ingredient, that's why I usually get that one. The 3 day or 1 day products I haven't found to be effective.

If that dosen't do it, see if your doctor will prescribe Diflucan, that generally will wipe it out in a day or two.

Was that your first yeast infection or have you had them before?

If it was your first one, you need to have a doctor examine you (in you-know-where).

There's an antibiotic called Diflucan that usually works great on yeast infections. (got my first infection last month...was. not. happy. at. all. But that antibiotic worked great. (maybe it's an antifungal?)
