  • Have you been tested for diabetes? This happened to my friend with the repeated infections and discovered she had the start of diabetes.

  • I agree that the infection is probably FROM the antibiotics. Eat yogurt and yes I've heard of inserting it. I'd go to the pharmacy and buy Monostat before I'd pay another fee for more antibiotics that will make it worse
