Tell your Doctor: Your health care providers need to know that you are getting yeast infections after antibiotics, specifically the PCN, so they can give you a prescription for a medication that can prevent it from happenning again.Some patients benefit from using OTC Monistat at the end of treatment with antibiotics or when they start having first signs of discomfort. However, some will need prescription med.
