Diflucan and penicillin

Common Questions and Answers about Diflucan and penicillin


Avatar m tn Three weeks ago I had an oral surgery and the doctor prescribed me penicillin for 10 days. On the second day I started to itch and I knew I had a yeast infection. I consulted a doctor and was told that it would not help to prescribe the diflucan until I was done with the meds. One week ago I took the diflucan and now I have a sore by my peritoneum, I am so scared because I dont want to have genital herpes. I never had this happen before.
Avatar f tn I was treated for candida with a cream as well as diflucan but it's come back after a week or 2 and worse than before. I'm currently on penicillin for a mild case of tonsillitis and taking probiotics to counter act the antibiotics but I have no relief from the discomfort of the itching and burning, and worst of all the inflammation. I'm worried the inflammation could be a bad sign for something more serious that yeast.
Avatar f tn and it did, almost instantly, worked better than diflucan and didn't burn like monistat... but my BV was back, so I started to look for home remedies, probiotics? Got some capsules, the day after I took them I had a yogurt like consistency discharge, not cool. Eating more yogurt? Didn't do anything. What was left? More pills, peroxide douche, garlic or boric acid. The idea of peroxide in my vagina terrified me, didn't know where to find boric acid, but I had garlic cloves in my fridge.
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks back i went to the doctors with a believed throat infection, and he gave me 3 Penicillin capsules to take a day for 5 days. I took these and the problem seemed to subside. However, it returned. I went to the doctors again and he noted white spots in my mouth. Im still suffering from a bad sore throat. Any ideas what it is or what i could do?
Avatar n tn Or when your general practitioner write the script for the antibiotic that will curse you in a week tell him that you know what it will do and ask for a script for diflucan as well - if the doctor tells you to use something OTC, get another doctor. A lot of women can't use the OTC vaginal yeast infection treatments because the cause irritation and frankly they don't just work as well as Diflucan.
Avatar f tn I have to get over this illness (and I've already tried penicillin which failed) and am so afraid I am going to DIE doing it. Also, it's close to menstrual time so that may play a role but I really think the Z-pack is causing this. Can anyone help?
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar n tn Well, right there on the spot he said I had a horrible yeast infection and wrote me a prescription for 2 Diflucan pills. I was to take one (they stay in your system for 3 days) and then repeat 3 days later. He also gave me a prescription for a topical cream. I took the first pill, and applied the cream. The itching became 100 times worse. I kept putting on the cream until the itching became unbearable (2 days), and then I took my second Diflucan pill after three days.
Avatar f tn As a precaution for syphilis, she gave me an IM Penicillin injection and prescribed Diflucan for the yeast. She did not swab the lesion itself. My blood test results returned the next day and were WNL and negative for your standard STD's and HIV (HSV was the only one not tested). The only abnormality was an increased level of erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
Avatar f tn I was put on Diflucan and Microbid for the UTI. Then my period came around and another yeast infection came. Took another Diflucan. Then the next month i had to get my wisdom teeth taken out and was put on a week of Penicillin four times a day. That caused another yeast infection when my period came around, but that time i had went into my doctors office and i was positive for yeast and BV. So i was on vaginal suppositories and Flagyl for about a week and some probiotics for about two months.
20797525 tn?1510606213 Every doctor I go to looks me over, does some tests, and ALWAYS sends me home with Diflucan or another treatment. I'm currently on Diflucan 100mg every 3 days for 3 weeks for external vaginal yeast (which ITCHES LIKE HELL.) I have 3 doses left out of the 9 pills I was prescribed. NO RELIEF. I take the medication the day I'm due and that day I feel hopeful and a little better than the previous day.
Avatar n tn I would take the Diflucan. It's quick and easy. I don't know what you have heard bad about it. I have taken it several times and the only complaint I have is I need to eat before I take it otherwise I feel nauseous. I have heard that the one and three day monistats don't work. If you don't want to take the diflucan go out and buy a 5 or 7 day monistat.
Avatar n tn After a few months I started experiencing burning after sex and pain during sex. I went to the gyno and got tested for all the STDs and was totally fine. I stopped having sex for awhile and then we started again about 2 months ago being really careful. Everything was getting better, but then last Monday we had sex twice in a row and it really hurt the second time and has been hurting since. It's a constant stinging and itching and intense irritation that won't go away.
655058 tn?1224432752 now iam experiencing some weird things for about 3 weeks now. my mouth and throat is excessively dry night and day. i have prickley pin bumps on the roof of mouth and throat . my upper roof of mouth is pale white. iam having difficult in eating now. when i drink water my whole mouth feels prickley. i have went to a ent and he told me to take zantac, for indigestion. iam confused and need help here.
Avatar n tn The frequent urination stopped but the burning still exist. I have seen several doc s and they have prescribed penicillin shots, doxycycline, diflucan, flagyl, bactrim, levaquin and yet i am still suffering from this problem. I sometimes have itchings along with the burning. But the burning and a tingling feeling at the tip persists. Sometimes my penis temperature gets really hot. Also, the discomfort and burning is underneath the shaft of my penis.
Avatar f tn Antibiotics (doxicycline) seem to have the inside of my mouth raw, with white patches on my tongue and a few white blisters in mouth, also. Now I'm on Penicillin for the teeth. I am on chantix, too. Quitting after 37 years.
Avatar m tn The next day i was spotting and having yellow brown stringy discharge just kind of hanging out of vaj. Everything was extremely swollen and itchy. I had also been on penicillin. So i assumed i was having a yeast infection tried the off brand yeast infection ovules but it didnt help. I then made an appt with my daughter within the week after. He tested me for std, bv, yeast. The only thing that came back positive was YEAST. He gave me a diflucan.

Avatar f tn It also has some anti-candida effect, and it says when combined with fluconazole (Diflucan), it works well on Diflucan strains of the yeast. I hadn't heard of taking Xylitol, although I have taken Stevia in the past. I felt a bit crummier for the first month of taking Stevia. Later I read that Eva Sapi had seen it kill some spirochetes and cysts in the lab. I figured the extra fatigue and brain fog I had was the die off. After that eased up, it didn't seem to benefit me anymore.
Avatar n tn clindomycin (worked initially); penicillin (worked initially); diflucan (didn't work); zithromax (nope); tetrazole (didn't work and REALLY irritated my inner workings). 2. I used about every home remedy I could get info on: garlic, yogurt, peroxide, tea tree oil, oregano oil...you name it: if it seemed safe and had a good chance of working, it went into my vagina (ha!). 3. On top of all this, I seem to be super dry and sensitive.
Avatar f tn doxycycline, bactrim, netronizazol and ciprofloxacin; they also prescribed me diflucan to make sire it wasn't a yeast infection at first... I had this same infection a while back and they had me on an antibiotic that I took 6 times a day for 10 days but I can't remember what it was. So I am stuck, please help me! I am allergic to penicillin and everything in that family.
Avatar f tn I've read 3 books on coconut oil and many studies. There's a study on coconut oil vs diflucan, if someone wants the link,I'll dig it out. One of the top functional foods. I think everyone should use it! Let me know if you have any questions since I feel like a "junior coconut guru"lol! Really, I have a ton of people on my list who buy virgin coconut oil from me on a cooperative basis (almost wholesale) and they all tell me how wonderful they feel.
Avatar n tn I saw a Fungal specialist and he looked at me and did a cursory examination and didn't feel it was a fungus problem and didn't do any testing. No symptoms according to him. He blamed it on the swab culture and said it was a poor way to diagnose fungal infections especially on someone who had as much penicillin as me.
Avatar n tn he is also allergic to peanuts,strawberries,milk,soy,penicillin,diflucan,omnicef, and certain molds. i am extremely worried that he might die one day or something..hes a very picky eater but still eats alot when i give him what he loves the most which is hot dogs and any veggies..hes a very good boy and i just want to know what this might be starting to look like in a disease sorts or if he has some other hidden reason why this is all happening to such a sweet child.
Avatar f tn i went to the dentist and he's told me that i have a infection although the problem is that I'm deathly allergic to penicillin and all five of them that fall under the category of penicillin. So in the end I'm screwed for antibiotics and so far have no way to kill the infection. I'm in major pain and i was wondering if anyone knows a way to help kill the infection as well as stop the pain without using antibiotics??
Avatar n tn I was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia, both tests came back negative. Doctor prescribed me metronidazole and diflucan for bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection for my symptoms. Metronidozale was the pill my gyno didn't want me to take because it might contain sulfa, which I am very allergic to.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar f tn My yeast infections are recurrent, have been for years now, ACV is the only thing that works instantly, the antibiotics I took were for a bad throat infection (unlucky for me I think it might be back), I tried diflucan and monistat for the yeast it never works and it started getting expensive after a bit.
Avatar m tn I slept with a female during undergrad and had unprotected oral and vaginal intercourse. 2 weeks later I had severe pain after ejaculation and on the 3rd week I was severely sick for a few weeks and a sore throat lasting a few months. I asked the girl to be tested but she was afraid and said she was fine. Granted this left "what ifs in my mind". It also lead me down the same rabbit hole many of you are currently going through. By this I'm referring to having a plethora of HIV tests.
