Vaginitis from abx: It is not uncommon for women to get vaginitis (itching and discharge with an odor) when they are on antibiotics. Normally, women have certain protective fungi in their body and normal flora bacteria keep the fungi from overgrowing. All of that is normal. When you're on antibiotics, the bacteria are decreased and the fungi can overgrow causing vaginitis.
