I have a yeast infection and I have inflammation and I really don't know what to do. I really need to some how treat the inflammation before the yeast infection because it hurts so bad that I can't do anything such as sitting down, keeping clean, or even walking. My doctor prescribed me a pill to put into my vagina but I can't use it because a sore is right there. I have been taking prednisone for the pain. That's the only thing that seems to help enough for me to take a shower every morning and gives me privledges to walk but I have recently found out that prednisone is bad for yeast infections but helps inflammation. What am I suppose to do?
