I did have a bacteria infection about 3 months ago. It cleared up after antibiotics
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 6 months ago.

Are you saying the Valtrex were the antibiotics you took? Those are antivirals and not antibiotics

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No I'm saying I took valtrex last Thursday and now I have heat in my vagina. 3 Months ago I took antibiotics for a bacteria infection.

This wouldn't be from the Valtrex

It sounds like you may have a yeast infection, though, so you can try Monistat for that and if it doesn't clear it up you'll need prescription oral Diflucan
