I have had vaginal dryness and moderate itching for about 5 days now. Just finished a round of augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). What do I do? Is it a yeast infection?

In brief: Common problem

It is common for antibiotics to lead to vaginal yeast infections, but if this is your first one, it's probably a good idea to have it diagnosed for sure before taking more medications.
If you can't get an appointment soon, then you can try an over the counter remedy like vaginal Clotrimazole 1% cream, and see if it helps.
