NEED HELP ASAP!!! TMI!!! IM MISERABLE!!! adult content

I started an antibiotic a few days ago and it gave me a HORRIBLE yeast infection. I stopped taking the medicine. I am SO miserable; I tried Vagisil, but it is NOT helping with the itching AT ALL. I am going CRAZY! Is there a home remedy or trick that I can try to get some quick relief??? PLEASE HELP!!!

  • Vagasil is not a treatment for yeast.

    You can use boric acid, a mild cider vinegar solution (like 1tsp per cup of water --or 1/2 a cup in a shallow bath) or natural (no gelatin in the ingredient list, no sugar or flavourings) yogurt.

    But monostat will work. If it's yeast. It may not be.

  • If you purchase the OTC yeast infection medication, pick yourself up one of the medicines to apply to the outside area as well. I know it's Sunday, but you can call the on call Dr. and possibly they might call you in a script for a one time pill. Good luck.

  • YOGURT!!! You need to always eat lots of yogurt when you take any antibiotics.
