A member asked:

Taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection & a couple days after i noticed swelling, itching, & discharge in my vagina. now my symptoms seem milder. ?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yeast infection: Unfortunately, antibiotics like amoxicillin not only kill the bacteria that in your case caused the sinus infection, but also the lactobacillae present in the vagina. That in turn promoted the growth of candida, I suspect, and you ended up with a yeast infection. If your vaginal symptoms are ceasing, your lactobacilli may be recovering.
