Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin cause yeast infection


Avatar f tn Ciprofloxacin, Avelox, Levaquin, norefloxacin, etc) cause, instead of choosing to diagnose each symptom individually?
2176548 tn?1340681417 If a culture is done, a test will be done to determine what the cause of the infection is and which med is best to treat such infection. Sorry to sound repetitious! :( Good luck with t he ultrasound!!
173975 tn?1216261375 Ya know, I had a chronic problem with this 20 years ago but haven't had ONE infection since. So you think TX could cause it? Oh, great. If I can move tomorrow I'm gonna get cranberry juice. I usedta drink it all the time but haven't had the need . . . Sh!!!!!!!!!!!!TTTTTTTT! There is something worse than TX SX and it is a bladder infection!
Avatar n tn Also, if you take meds like flagyl and cipro, then those will kill off bacteria, and that can cause yeast. Then you took diflucan and then tercon, and that will kill of fungus, which can then can allow bacteria to overgrow, because the good fungal stuff we need to keep the bacteria in check is gone. How were you diagnosed with trich in the first place? And talk to your doc about taking a little break from the meds, and seeing if your body corrects itself.
Avatar m tn - urethritis (most intense at first exposure, still lingers somewhat) - red/pink spots on the head of my penis (doc thinks this may be a yeast infection due to all the antibodies) - discomfort in my rectum - frequent urination (was worst just before I was diagnosed, so late-March--concided w/ rectal pain) - pain in lower abdomen and kidneys - *severe* fatigue, both mental and physical (most severe at first exposure, still lingers) - conjunctivits in both eyes (I'm sure it's related because thi
Avatar m tn Hello, Herpes is a viral infection and not a fungal infection. For fungal infection of the genitalia, topical and oral antifungals need to be prescribed. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic and not an antifungal which is used for bacterial infection and not fungal infection. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Nearly a week had passed by then so I had extreme amounts of infection when they cut me open and had to remove a lot of small and large intestine that were bad and clean infection off of multiple organs. They diagnosed me with diverticulitis. I had so many antibiotics during this time. In 2012 i started having multiple high blood attacks where I would be taken to the error and have BP around 220 over 150.
657020 tn?1238041118 I recently went to see my obgyn just to make sure the bv had not recurred and it hadn't, But found I had a yeast infection. I've done a lot of research on antibiotic use, bacterial vaginosis and candida infection and I've never really come across anything that would support these bumps being caused by any of these things.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar f tn The only thing I can think of is I took an antibiotic (ciprofloxacin) for a sinus infection weeks ago. Other than that, nothing. This is driving me crazy.
Avatar m tn Cipro is usually prescribed for something like a uti and the Diflucan can be given with it to keep a woman from getting a yeast infection. The combination of these 2 meds are very common and don't immediately convey an std. If she already has a yeast infection then ues wear a condom. I would ask her what the doctor prescribed her the meds for and go from there.
Avatar m tn As well as irregular bleeding, I have experienced an irritated vagina during this last period as well and thought perhaps it may have been a mild yeast infection (I am sensitive to yeast affections and get them about once every 4-5 months and they're always quite mild). However, the symptoms to what I thought may have been a yeast infection appear to have gone away except that during the times my partner and I engage in sex it I become irritated again like my skin is raw and sensitive.
Avatar m tn Although chlamydia can sometimes mimic urinary tract a bladder infection, when symptoms are as typical as yours usually it's just that -- a garden-vareity urinary tract infection. Cipro and other antibiotics also can trigger vaginal yeast infections, which are a common cause of ongoing or recurrent symptoms like yours. 3) There is no such thing as "chronic chlamydia" of the genital tract.
Avatar m tn The timing could go along with a yeast infection of your own, since yeast can be triggered by antibiotics. In conclusion, I'm reasonably confident your symptoms aren't due to any STD, but I will be interested in the additional information mentioned and may have more to say. In the meantime, you should discuss these other possibilities (yeast, UTI, herpes) with your doctor.
782550 tn?1333487857 Just a word of advice, I'm not sure how prone you are to them but taking all these antibiotics may cause a yeast infection. Maybe some probiotic pills..ok maybe no more pills lol, but upping your yogurt intake during this time can't hurt. I hope that you will feel better soon.
Avatar f tn The odor is NOT horrible to where it would be some kind of STD or Yeast Infection and very minimal itching. I have 5 tablets left of Ciprofloxacin which was prescribed for a UTI a while ago but is also used for bacterial infections so I am probably going to take the 5 I have left and hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Without a complete medical evaluation it may be difficult for me to confirm the exact cause. The common causes of irritation at tip of penis are yeast infection, Chlamydia, balanitis, gonorrhea etc.You have ruled out mostly all the causes mentioned above. This does not seem like a STI since there are no sores, lesions, discharge, or other symptoms of any STI.
Avatar n tn Klebsiella pnenmoniae and Streptoccous agalactia were found present on my penile head. Then doctor prescribed Ciprofloxacin 500 mg tablets, 2 times daily for 7 days. However the Ciprofloxacin could not work and the Balanitis still persists. I am still applying the “Uni-Mizole-HC” cream to stop the inflammation on my penile head. May I ask you a few questions about my Balanitis, 1. What do you think is the cause of my Balanitis ? Antibiotic and anti-fugal drugs seem do not work to relieve. 2.
Avatar m tn Well it's back along with, what looks and feels like a yeast infection. Something I also have had quite a bit over the years. I am currently on a heavy dose of cipro, which I have read, often makes yeast infections quite easy to get for uncircumsized men. Like me. So I guess you see where I'm headed. Given the timing of these conditions, I can't help but see a correlation. The symptoms of prostitis are the same as usual.
Avatar f tn The medicine should treat gonorrhea anywhere you have it. When you see your Dr mention this to him/her about having anal sex also. But you should be ok. HPV test is done yearly with paps, herpes is conclusive at 3-4 months. Maybe have bf test to see if he has it or not, that way you will know without testing.
Avatar f tn As for him, he has had a few before me but that was way before we get together. Problem is lately I went to see my doc thinking I had yeast infection and at the same time also did a pap smear test. Result came back good , no yeast or any organism present. But what causes the itch then? Doc prescribed me with 4 tablets of ciprofloxacin & sporanax. Unfortunately it didn't cure, so I went back to see her again only to have her prescribe me a longer period (1wk) of dosage of sporanax.
Avatar m tn There are other antibiotics if need be or perhaps your doctor will want you to see someone else ( a urologist?). A yeast infection might cause some of your symptoms (anal itch) but is unlikely to cause others. You have been on a lot of antibiotics in recent weeks and this does increase risk for fungal skin infections but as I said, I would be surprised if your sharp scrotal/anal pains are the result of a fungal infection. As I said, you need to work through this with your doctor.
Avatar m tn In addition to all of this I have taken a rake of medicines to combat any likely causes of infection, which ended up giving me a yeast infection. However, I seem to be no closer to finding out what is causing my penis to ache. During the scope procedure the doctor said that the very tip of the inside of my penis was red and that it looked a small bit swollen, and one of the swabs (of five different swabs- ouch!
Avatar m tn I already said it sounds as if you have a fungal infection, like jock itch or yeast. I already said I doubt its gonorrhea or chlamydia, etc.
Avatar m tn On day 27, I notice yeast on my mouth and penis. I have had always some yeast problems but not so major. Sure my diet, stress and antibiotics might have something do with those problems, hopefully. During days I have had only cigarettes and coffee. And in order to sleep few hours per night and calm down I have taken a couple of beers everyday since day 9 . Panic on day 27 due to yeast problem.
Avatar m tn No STD was likely from the very brief oral-penile exposure you describe, and certainly not from fingering or hand-genital contact. You did not need the ciprofloxacin, and it may be the cause of your current symptoms. "Whitish" material on the head of the penis could mean a yeast infection, especially if you are uncircumcised -- and yeast overgrowth is often triggered by broad spectrum antibiotics like ciprofloxacin.
Avatar n tn He gave me some cream that would help if it was a yeast infection (do to all the antibiotics) and the cream would help with the rash. He also said visually it did not look like herpes. My question is would herpes just appear like a light rash and the head of the penis with no raised bumps? Would the pain be absent for a half a day then reaapear? Like I said this is last question for me...
Avatar m tn I thought that I had a bad yeast infection. Then I noticed some bumps down there. I had been diagnosed with hpv a few months ago. I went to a walk in clinic and the Dr. there A. did not do a urine sample, B. tried to do an exam with out lube on my lower area thus causing so much pain I screamed, C. did a culture but said well this is a text book case of type 2 herpes and just gave me a script for Valtrex, D. He didn't even prescribe antibiotics or anything in case it was something else.
Avatar n tn There are bacteria that cause NGU as well, but most cases due to bacteria would have responded to azithromycin and/or doxycycline -- but viruses do not respond to any antibiotic. Your doctor also treated you for a possible yeast infection, which is what Diflucan is for -- but yeast rarely causes this kind of problem.
Avatar m tn On day 16 I visited a doctor which examined me and gave 10 days (twice a day Ciprofloxacin 500mg) antibiotics due the possible bacteria infection (e.g. from food). CRP was then 11. I guess antibiotics did something 'cause lymphatic nodes behind ears were not swollen any more. After a week of antibiotics (on day 22) I also notice an eczema like skin reaction on my chest and face. Skin is a bit red, dry and sensitive.
