Question: How many days after taking new antibiotics does a vaginal yeast infection appear?
I’m on Augmeten after being sick for a while. I’ve never been on this medication before. Three days ago I was prescribed. Two days later i realized I had a vaginal yeast infection. Is it normal to get it after only been taking the medication for a few days? I took 4 pills total and haven’t ingested any yogurt or anything to prevent this from happening. HELP. Can this be something else?

Sounds like it is probably a yeast infection, even though you did get it quite quickly. Go to Whole Foods or a vitamin store and get acidophilus tablets, or digestive enzyme tablets–they will have them under refrigeration. They’re superior than yogurt.

    What is the treatment for vaginal yeast infection and vulvitis?
    Vaginal yeast infection and vulvitis may be treated with antifungal medications that are applied topically in and around the vagina or with antifungal medications taken by mouth. Sometimes, mixed infections with more than one microbe can require combinations of treatments.
    Topically applied antifungal creams include:butoconazole (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Lotrimin), miconazole (Monistat), and terconazole (Terazol 3). The over-the-counter topical treatments are an option for some women when yeast is the cause of the infection. However, it should be noted that infection other than yeast can cause similar symptoms. These include bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. If symptoms are not eliminated by over-the-counter products, patients should see their doctor for evaluation.
    Antifungal medications that are also available as vaginal tablets include:clotrimazole (Lotrimin, Mycelex), miconazole (Monistat; Micatin), terconazole (Terazol), and nystatin (Mycostatin) Oral medications for yeast vaginitis and vulvitis include fluconazole (Diflucan). Most doctors prefer to treat vaginal yeast infections with vaginal tablets or suppositories rather than oral medications. Oral antifungal medication can cause side effects such as headache, nausea, and abdominal pain , while vaginal treatment is unlikely to cause these side effects. Oral antifungal medications are also not recommended for use during pregnancy.if yeast is commonly present in normal women, who should be treated?all women with the symptoms of infection described above should be treated. Women without symptoms should not be treated. Most experts do not recommend treating the sex partners of women with yeast vaginitis if they do not have symptoms themselves, although this has been a controversial issue.Vaginal Yeast Infection At A Glance…Yeast vaginitis is an infection of the vagina caused by a fungus known as Candida. Yeast vaginitis is characterized by itching, burning, soreness, pain during intercourse and/or urination, and vaginal discharge. Yeast vaginitis can be treated with antifungal medications applied to the affected area or taken by mouth. Candida may be normally present in small amounts in some women and not cause disease.
    The presence of Candida without symptoms of infection does not require treatment.

    I depends on the person of how many days a yeast infection would take place. There an over the counter drug that’s called yeast guard for preventive measures. You physician can prescribe Diflucan or they have over the counter Monostate at the pharmacies now also.

    Vaginal yeast infection is highly infective and recurring in nature, instead of taking pills i suggest you to use natural and home based remedies along with maintaining proper hygiene.
