Hello I'm Dr Chip

This sounds like a yeast infection--very common when a woman is on antibiotics

Nothing too serious and for now you can try oral probiotics and either Monistat or Lamisil to clear it up

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
