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.
Candida. Candida is a form of yeast - if Monistat is not helping, you may want to see a gynecologist for prescription medication and to do more detailed testing.
Yeast infection on Augmentin while breastfeeding. Safe to take fluconazole with 1d left of antibx? Or Monistat -1, 3 or 7? Taking dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) probiotic
Safe. Fluconozole is generally considered safe to use during breastfeeding. I would ask your OB/GYN or Family Doctor to make sure they agree with that before taking the medication (did the prescribing doctor realize you were breastfeeding?). Monistat is also safe.
Do I need penicilin or Monistat is ok? I don't know if this is yeast infection or herpes, is really really painful to pee and after I pee I see in my vagina red spots that after a while cover with a white stuff that it is easy to clean with paper the firs
It. It is possible that you have both herpes and a yeast vaginitis at the same time. Usually yeast vaginitis is not a painful problem, which makes me wonder about the herpes infection you mentioned. You relly need to see your family physician or gynecologist soon to sort this out and get proper treatment. Until then take some Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) to control some of the pain.
