I heard some people get yeast infections when they take antibiotics
19 Aug 2010
Yeah and if you have ever had a yeast and have to take antibiotics, you are more likely to get it again, as are diabetics and those on birth control pills. You can treat for a yeast while you are taking the antibiotic. Get the 3 or 7 day treatment pack and use some of the cream every other day or every 2 or 3 days, to prevent the infection. If you can get some Diflucan, you can use that mid way thru treament and a few days after. Some doctors will now prescribe Diflucan to their lady patients who have to take antibiotics, just let the Doctor know that you are prone to yeast.

I do not have a full blown yeast infection, will it clear up on its own? or is it better to use the medicated cream just in case?
