I got it after taking the Amox-Clav875

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,it sounds vaginal yeast infection as antibiotic could disturb vaginal flora resulting in such yeast growth.

Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And afterwards,apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with 1% Clotrimazole cream twice a day.

You should avoid frequent washing,douching,sexual activity for a while.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose fitted cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.
Start RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

Take 200mg of yogurt daily or acidophillus tablets available OTC. Yogurt is better.

If your symptoms'll persist then see your doctor for a vaginal swab to be tested in the lab.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
