Hi, i have kind of a complicated question. I was treated for an yeast infection about a week ago. Took 2 doses of diflucan, infection is slowly going away but I woke up today with both my eyes red and irritated. Im wondering if it could be related i read yeast infection can spread, or should i treat it as pink eye
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. Have you used Diflucan or anything similar before?
Customer: once, maybe 20 years ago no other meds
JA: Have you seen a doctor about the pinkeye?
Customer: no, this just happened today, I have to wait until Monday
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: no, very healthy otherwise, these 2 things just piled up on me quickly


I hope I can help you

in a healthy individual , it's unlikely to get infection of yeast in the eyes

this looks like a typical Conjunctivitis
