Yeast infection from hell.

I've been on antibiotics for 17 days and I knew this would happen but now I have horrendous yeast infection. I'm using monistat but I just started using it today...

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to relieve some of the discomfort until the medicine starts kicking it?

  • Eat alot of yogurt and you could also soak a pad in witch hazel (its and herb) and press that on. It should relieve some of the discomfort.
