I'm on azithomycin. I've had bad diarrhea. But now i'm having vaginal irritation. Could it be a yeast infection? I'm eating 12 oz of yogurt per day.

Yeast Infection: Yes. It is very common for females to get an overgrowth of yeast when they are taking antibiotics.

You may want to discuss with your health care provider about having a prescription for times like this so that you do not suffer needlessly long if this occurs. ...Read more

I have suffered an ongoing yeast infection for 2+ yrs, while fainting about 4 times, along with diarrhea, feeling tired, and bleeding in b/w periods.

Yeast : I'm so sorry you been suffering with these infections for so long. There are approaches to women with chronic east infection. One is extended administration of diflucan (fluconazole). Another idea is the use of boric acid or gentian violet. Sometimes an elimination diet is helpful. A great book is the v book. Definitely see a specialist in gynecology who can help you with this. ...Read more

Stool sample to check for yeast,etc. does it matter that I had diarrhea from,I believe excess magnesium and vit c last  night?Will it mess up reading?

Possibly: I think it's important to provide a fresh warm somewhat formed stool sample for analysis rather than a watery diarrheal sample. If the latter is found to be negative,it could be a false negative due to an unsatisfactory stool specimen. ...Read more

Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum.

My son has had diarrhea for 2 weeks causing a bad diaperrash. He is also on day 2 of amoxicillin for an ear infection. Now it looks like a yeast infection. What should I do?

My son has had diarrhea for 2 weeks causing a bad diaperrash. He is also on day 2 of amoxicillin for an ear infection. Now it looks like a yeast infection. What should I do?

Whole nine yards: Diarrhea x 2 weeks and now Amoxicillin known to cause more diarrhea. Make sure the diaper area is clean and dry. You need to use a good barrier cream such as desytin. Nystatin ointment/cream can be used to treat yeast infection. Sometimes a touch of Hydrocortisone in the first few days may be needed to suppress inflammation if that is bad. Consult with pediatrician to be on a safe side. ...Read more

Itchy, sore, red (and whitish) anus & butt crack x5 days after taking Aumentin. Abx caused diarrhea, so had to wipe a lot. Just irritated or candida?

Both: Could be both. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) can be very irritating to the bowel and can cause yeast. Use both an anti fungal medication and a barrier cream and keep the area irrigated in the shower. If not better, see your doctor for an exam. All the best. ...Read more

Can i take brewers yeast if I am taking levothyroxine?

Yes, but why?: You can, but it won't do you any good. After all, you're not a cake or piece of pastry. Yeast is broken down in your stomach and metabolized for calories just like any other food. It doesn't survive or make it out of your stomach intact. Waste of time and money. ...Read more
