Discussions that mention diflucan

Alternative Medicine board


Does anyone have suggestions for relieving the pain, burning, and itching associated with a yeast infection? Is there a cream that works particularly well or a soak that I should put in the bathtub??

I am currently taking an antibiotic for acne, and Wednesday morning I woke up with the yeast infection from hell.
I called the doctor, and was prescribed a Diflucan pill, which I took Wednesday afternoon. I was not any better this afternoon, so I called the pharmacist, who recommended that I take my second Diflucan pill. I'm not better yet, but I have to make it through the weekend before I can see the doctor. That's why I need suggestions-- quickly! This is the worse infection I've ever had!

Thanks in advance for any help!
