Dose antibiotics give u a yeast infection?

Indirectly. Antibiotics upset the balance in the vagina between lactobacilli (good bacteria) and yeast by reducing the number of or killing off the lactobacilli, thus allowing the yeast to grow out of control. Replenishing the lactobacilli (yogurt, probiotics) when taking antibiotics can help. Otc & rx anti-yeast creams &/or meds (diflucan) fight the yeast overgrowth until balance is restored.

My 16 yrs old daughter has been bothered by chronic yeast infection after taking a very strong antibiotic 3 yrs ago. I've tried cranberry juice, probiotic and OTC product. Her new pediatrician prescribed a 1 dose oral antifungal which did not work, now rec

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...

First thing is to test for yeast by culture, both to confirm the diagnosis and determine the type of yeast; some strains are resistant to usual treatment with "azole" drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole. May need alternative treatments. Consider consultation with a gyn who subspecializes in infections, or an infectious diseases specialist. Read more...
