  • Yeast infection....its a nasty side effect of taking antibiotics.

  • Yep. Yeast infection. From now on, whenever you must take antibiotics, take probiotics along with them to replace the good bacteria which die along with the bad. Doctors should tell you this, but they don't. You can buy probiotics at any health food store.

  • Yeast. Get a kit in the pharmacy that will combat it, and eat yogurt, take probiotics anytime you take antibiotics.

  • Get some D Mannose from your health food store..don't eat ANY sugar..not even in the form of fruit, or white breads, white rice, they turn to sugar in your system..sugar feeds the bacteria and makes it multiply like rabbits! D mannose will prevent the sugar from adhering to the va JJ's walls and and will release the sugar and infection from your system via the kidneys..I just went through what you're going through, it was making me crAzY!! D Mannose is freakin MAGIC I swear!! GET SOME NOW!!!

  • Probably a yeast infection. Next time eat lots of yogurt and take probiotics. The antibiotics kills the good bacteria that balances out the yeast.
