  • It's actually very common Mom. Relax. Get some more meds. Sometimes it takes a while for this to get outta her system. They may even have to give her a round of something like Diflucan.

  • No it is common. One thing to remember is if you cut out all the bactria that is how it grows. Yeast infections is there because of the abcense of bactria it may have happend because of the meds. Try to give her some yogurt. That helps! That is a rule of thumb for anyone on antibotoics eat yorgurt! it helps counteract that in the lower regions of our bodies! GL...try to use warm soft rag to wipe her and if it is just a pee diaper dab it instead of wipe that will feel better to her!
