Question: Is it ok to treat a yeast infection while still using antibiotics?
I have 3 more days to use the rest of my 7 days worth of antibiotics, and it has already caused a yeast infection. It is bugging the crap outa me, and I wanna get rid of it pronto! Is it ok to begin treatment, or should I move until I finish the rest of the antibiotics?

By all means – begin treating it – it will not effect the anitbiotics. And drink Kefir or consume yogurt to help place the “good” bacteria back in your system.

    I agree you actually should start treating it a little early because it might take a few days to work.

    if you have yeast infection then you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

    if you really want to get rid of yeast infection forever then you must follow these tips:

    1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

    2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

    3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

    4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

    5) Try gentian violet. It’s a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad – it stains everything.

    6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

    7) You must use herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
    And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months – if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore…

    I do not know if any pharmacies carry Yeastrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here

    good luck!
