Canesten and amoxi: You can use both at the same time. If you have a yeast infection now you want to use the canestin. If you need to take the amoxicillin if will aggrevate the yeast infection so you will also need to use the canesten after you finish with the antibiotics depending on your infections. Eating yogurt with the active lactobacillus helps or the lactobacillus pills.
