Yeast infection after having a baby?

My daughter is 2 weeks old now and I think I have a yeast infection, i have never had one before so im not sure. I guess the real ? is, is if while wearing a pad I feel like im on fire down there! Is that a yeast infection or just normal and if it is can I just take meds for it or should I call my dr. first? I also had my daughter via c-sec. if that makes a diffrence. Any help would be great!

  • Do not try to treat yourself. Call the doctor and go in and get it checked out. A yeast infection doesn't feel like you are on fire.

  • Did u have a catheter? I ended up with a HORRIBLE yeast infection after my c section, also a UTI, and a kidney infection. Horrible. I would go to the doctor-they will give you medicine.
