Yeast Infection Taking
Don't know if I have yeast or candida yeast infection. Taking Monistat n probiotics. Should I go on candida diet just in case???
Candida is yeast: Candida albicans is responsible for yeast infections. If you are not sure what is causing your symptoms I suggest seeing your doctor to confirm and rule out any other causes. There have been no real studies on the Candida diet that I am aware of. If you get the diagnosis confirmed there is no harm in trying it. Avoiding lots of sugar, white flour and processed foods is a good idea for us all. ...Read more

Yeast Vaginitis: Any antibiotic can result in a yeast infection by killing the bacteria that normally live in the vagina.

Usually a call to the doc who gave you the antibiotic will result in treatment being called into the pharmacy. If you are prone to this ask for an Rx when you get antibiotics. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I got rid of a yeast infection by taking fluconazole, how long does the medicine take to actually?
Antifungal: U can decrease your sugar intake but the antibiotics increase the risk of vaginal yeast infections because the normal bacteria in the vagina are also killed by bacteria.

I have a vaginal yeast infection & started taking cranberry gummies everyday 500 mg. For how long is it safe to take this much? It's a pack of 72.
Won't hurt or help: Cranberry products have no effect in curing or preventing yeast infections. It was once thought cranberry could help treat or prevent bacterial urinary tract infection, but that has been disproved. The gummies won't do any harm (assuming you're not diabetic, if they have real sugar), but they also won't help your yeast infection. Use an "azole" product, or check with your doctor. ...Read more

Needs testing: A chronic yeast infection (and one that is resistant to appropriate treatment) is concerning and warrants further testing (to make sure it is in fact yeast and not another condition such as bacterial vaginosis or an STD if sexually active). A swab of the vaginal area is the best way to diagnose. Chronic yeast infections can indicate other systemic health problems which should be investigated ...Read more
