Customer Question
I have a yeast...

I have a yeast infection from taking antibiotics, and I would like to get a diflucan to get rid of this. Can you help?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I think just the itching.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take atenolol for rapid heart rate, and simvastatin for cholesterol, a low dose aspirin daily.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

No history of heart disease and very good health.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. As diflucan is a prescription, you would need to see a Dr. This is a q and a site only. I would suggest considering otc ticonazole ointment which is vagistat one. Its about 20$ and is a one time dose. The cure rate is higher and your symptom relief is instant. It really works much better than diflucan

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

You could help me by....answering it? I have been on
I have been on antibiotics (zithromax) for a cold, I usually get a yeast infection afterwards, so I took a Diflucan tablet on day 3 of those meds. On day 4, I had to go to my dentist and I was required to take additional antibiotics due to recent knee surgery. I was told I would probably get a yeast infection and it was suggested that I take another Diflucan, so I did on day 7. On day 9, I have symptoms of a yeast infection (burning)...could I still have gotten a yeast infection after the preventative Diflucan? Or, could taking so much Diflucan have possibly allowed a Bacterial Vaginosis infection to occur? I am leaving for vacation on Sunday and I don't know what to do. Thank you. … read more
