Antibiotics yeast skin

Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics yeast skin


Avatar n tn it's not necessarily yeast, it could be Erythrasma (bacteria) Antibiotics do foster yeast infections, it's called Antibiotic candidiasis (also known as "Iatrogenic candidiasis") is a Candidal infection caused by antibiotic use.[1]:311 Antibiotic candidiasis can result from overuse or over-prescription of broad-spectrum antibiotics[2] (such as oxytetracycline commonly used for the control of acne).
Avatar m tn I went to a doctor and he gave me antibiotics that are usually given to treat trich even though I didn't have trich. Those antibiotics caused me another yeast infection. I have tried more diflucan, monistat 7 (miconazole) and vagistat 1 (tioconazole) with no results. I tested for HIV and results were negative. Doctors are growing impatient with me. I just changed doctors and have an appt soon. I don't know what to do anymore.
Avatar n tn Now for the yeast infections with antibiotics - this happens because the antibiotics have killed off so many of the bad bacteria and they start attacking the similar good bacteria that control the yeast population "down south." so then the yeast over grow and you're left in misery - i know it sucks, and it happens every time i take ANY antibiotic that isn't for a UTI. Penicillin, Biaxin, Augmentin, you name it - if i have to take it for more than 7 days i'll get a yeast infection.
Avatar n tn I was told by my Dr yesterday that I have a yeast infection in my skin (confirmed by wet-mount testing). I came in because the area was red, swollen, slightly itchy, and had two fissures that were growing in size. Next to the largest fissures, smaller sores were also appearing. I took a Fluconazole tablet as prescribed. The information on the package says not to expect results for at least 25 hours. Within 6 hours the fissures were no longer painful to the touch.
Avatar m tn Doxycycline can predispose to yeast, but only after at least 1-2 weeks of treatment; and yeast doesn't cause epididymitis. And yeast skin infections are not likely to cause the symptoms you describe for your scrotum. As for sexual activity (masturbation or otherwise) during epididymitis, it's probably safe, but you really need to check with the doctor treating you.
Avatar n tn The problem now is that I have another area of torn skin that is bleeding, and I have some obvious vaginal discharge that looks like yeast. I am thinking it is probably yeast, caused from the antibiotics, and the yeast has dried out my skin again, causing it to tear. Is this common for yeast infections, or does it sound like something more serious that I should be seen for? Also, is it possible to have sores as an allergic reaction to something like neosporin?
657020 tn?1238041118 It's basically just like pores in the vaginal skin that become irritated when you have a yeast infection. At one point I could feel them all the time. After I treated the yeast infection a good majority of them went away and became almost unnoticeable. I am still having candida issues of course and the bumps started to come back a week ago or so, so I am treating with antifungal cream again. I am aware of what is called a bartholin cyst however the bumps were not associated with that condition.
Avatar f tn A yeast infection is when the yeast in the vagina, mouth or skin grows out of control so it causes redness and itching. A vaginal yeast infection is usually triggered after the person takes antibiotics, as they also kill good bacteria in the vagina that normally controls the yeast numbers. Natural yogurt with no sugar is the best treatment for it as if contains the bacteria bactillophillus adicophillus (spelling) which feeds on the yeast and regains that natural balance. Hope that helps!
Avatar f tn It reminded me of a snake sheding its skin well the skin under that looked normal no rash but it felt a lil thin when touched it would rinkle like if it was burned dont know if it was because of the cream.
Avatar f tn help with my beagle, she,s had been on antibiotics from surgery on leg , she has now developed irritation in skin folds around the vulva and swollen pretty sure its yeast infection/fungal just wondering can I use human products like canestan/clotrimozole cream on that area.. would it hurt her if she licked the cream. I am taking her to the vet on Monday but in the meantime I would like to try ease the discomfort she is constantly licking the area.
Avatar f tn I was on antibiotics about a month ago for a sinus infection. I was on Amoxicillin first and then 2 rounds of z pack. Well my sinus infection is gone but I think I have a yeast infection because of this. I tried one day monistat and it helped just a little but within in a week it was back again. I am not itchy just really sore on the outside of my vagina I think it is an external yeast infection. I called my doctor and she prescribed diflucan.
Avatar n tn What is the solution to yeast infection? I have a whitish skin growth that i suspect to be yeast infection. I Have never had a sexual intercourse. Is it sex related? It is quite painful and i want to get rid of it asap. Kindly advise.
Avatar f tn There is slight itching, swollen libia, just sore and tender but there its also peeling of the skin its that normal?. I know they it its a year infection but how long do they last?
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor and they said it seems like I have a yeast infection so they gave me canistan cream and I've been using this for weeks now and the symptoms are not going away. Does anyone know why? Is it true that some yeast infections may need antibiotics if the cream are not working? Would be grateful if someone could help me. Thanks!
Avatar f tn If there is imbalance, yeast can overgrow. Use of antibiotics, uncontrolled diabetes, increased warmth and moisture in the vaginal area due to sweating, discharge, or not allowing the area to dry increases the chance of getting a yeast infection. If it persists, follow-up with the derma or referral to an infectious disease specialist may indeed help. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn It is a yeast infection. A yeast infection can be under your nails, on your skin, throat, stomach, etc. Thrush is VERY painful, and you would know if you had it. It looks a lot like a yeast-like infection in general, but a lot more painful. You need to see an ear, nose, and throat doctor and have a culture done to see what it is. Your boyfriend may have carried some yeast on him that passed into your mouth. Get checked and let us all know what he/she said. Hope you feel better soon!
Avatar f tn When we get rid of those bacteria, the yeast can grow unchecked and lead to a yeast infection. Yeast infections like warm moist places. Inside skin folds is a perfect environment for them. If you are having recurrent infections and they are spreading down your thighs, I would agree with your doctor, you should see a dermatologist. Until you can be seen, try to to keep the skin clean and dry. Use a plain soap with no perfumes or dyes and plain water. Pat the area dry with a clean cotton towel.
Avatar m tn now i hadnt washed my penis properly in about a week, and i have extremely sensitive skin. i would just run my penis under luke warm water and didnt scrub gently. it burns when i urinate but only a little because ever since april 2nd ive been applying clotrimazole. yesterday i got extremely drunk and decided to masturbate, i masturbated for 2 hrs.
Avatar n tn Hi. I would like to ask you for help! What kind of medicine can I take for yeast infections? Can I take Monistat or you can advise me something else? Thank you!
Avatar m tn When you wash, do not use any soaps or shower gels, this changes the pH level on the skin and makes the yeast fungus get out of hand. If you have a very sugary diet or take antibiotics, that too can make the yeast fungus get out of hand. Wash your clothes using a non-biological washing detergent and a fabric softener suitable for sensitive skin. Don't wear tight clothing and only wear cotton underwear.
Avatar n tn Since vaginal yeast is caused by an imbalance between the good bacteria (in this case the lactobacilli) and the yeast already found in the vagina naturally due to antibiotics for example (which is my case), will an intake of lactobacillus supplements or just eating lots of yoghurt (without inserting it into the vagina directly as some people suggest) cure the problem for good?
Avatar f tn avoid milk and sugary things while you have a yeast infection and alchol if you drink(beer has yeast in it and you are what you drink/eat) wear loose clothing and don't stay in wet or damp clothing/bathing suits for long periods of time wear cotton underwear or atleast underwear that have a cotton lining eat yogurt with active cultures (yoplay has good yogurt for that) don't use sented anything down there, no sented soaps, tampons, pads nothing don't use always pads (i was told by my gynocol
Avatar f tn You are correct that BC pills can increase yeast infections in some women. So can diabetes and taking antibiotics. Despite that, most persons with yeast infections do not have such risk factors. I would discuss this with your doctor.
Avatar m tn From reading it seems it can be a sign of a worn down immune system. I've heard stress can cause immune system to be compromised, then surely yeast overgrowth could follow.
Avatar m tn Hello MedHelp community, Few months ago I noticed when urinating it stung/burns almost like I had a cut or something on the glans of the penis it wasn't till a few weeks ago it felt a lot worse. Having phimosis I had no way of identifying if it that were the case. But I did my research online and it just felt like it fits, sometimes there is a bit of clumpy discharge and the other times it itches really, really badly.
Avatar f tn Would Lab not make the diagnosis when my swabs were sent in for yeast? It has to be some deep skin structure Derm infection coz antifungal creams help but does not cure it completely. Also, I did not know the hygiene practises with it coz i didnt know what I got. Its with your and God's assistance here we may have an end to this nightmare finally. I am seeing Doc Tuesday or Wed whenever I get an appt.
Avatar n tn It typically causes creamy colored sore patches in the mouth. You may also have a sore throat. Genitally, a male yeast infection may cause itching, dry skin, and burning when you pee. Yeast infections usually clear up with topical antifungal treatment. You may think that using condoms or dams for sex can prevent sharing a yeast infection with your partner. However, it's best to delay sex until after treatment has been completed.
Avatar n tn I usually take prevacid or pepcid or tagamet with antibiotics along with acidopholus capsules to ward off stomach upset and yeast problems. I really think you have something more going on than simple gastritis - from whatever cause. In your case, I think a visit to a gastroenterologist would be a good start in getting to the bottom of your problem.
