Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone yeast


Avatar f tn Prednisone, 30mg two days 25mg two days 20mg two days 15mg two days 10mg two days EVERYTHING I have read about this indicates that taking prednisone while having a fungal infection of any sort is very bad. Why would my doctor prescribe me prednisone? I don't understand, is there some research that says that this is sometimes used as a treatment? I am on day three of treatment. I am scared, as this fungus has taken over my life for over a month.
Avatar f tn I know it's a pain to go and be seen when you have symptoms when you can buy otc yeast treatments but you are immunosuppressed with the long term prednisone so it's well worth proper testing to make sure you aren't having issues with a strain of yeast that needs more aggressive treatments too. they can send a swab off to the lab to check. if you are prone to yeast issues in general, check into either fem dophilus by jarrow or rephresh proB ( forget that company name ).

On Yeast, he has been declaired Yeast-free many times, but that is when he has just come off of a complex set of prescriptions (three or four of them) being administered. I am hopeful that the simple benadryl will help some, and I will continue to limit his diet to avoid anything he might be allergic to.
1549643 tn?1495762953 When fibromyalgia first started appearing in the late 1980’s I recognized it in my patients who had yeast overgrowth and I saw that the successful treatment of yeast would help alleviate their symptoms. Then when I began to research magnesium and use that more liberally, I found that the combination of yeast treatment and magnesium would help most patients with fibromyalgia. There is more to this article you can find on google. and You tube..
Avatar m tn I lost my job and my medical coverage and have been taking Prednisone, 15mg per day, as a stop gap. This is the only medication I have used which stops this condition and allows me to have a mostly normal resperatatory function with a loss of taste and smell and a mild congestion in my throat. I'm now starting to have side effects from this medication which includes: hot flashes, weight gain, hives, and some blurred vision.
Avatar n tn my 9 year old dog has been on prednisone for 6 weeks for ITP and we are weaning her off now.
Avatar f tn i am currently taking prednisone for a lupus flare. i have not officially been dx with lupus yet, but my doc said that she blieves that is what is making me sick. i have the history in the family of lupus, my own medial history, and the present medical symptoms of this disease, as well as some labs. my ana tests have all come out negative. my doc agrees with me on negative ana lupus. she said that happens to people alot, where they have lupus, but have on going negative ana tests.
Avatar f tn Recently I came down with an upper respiratory infection and the doctor prescribed me a penicillin to clear it up. I told the doctor that I had a yeast infection the last time I took an antibiotic. I purchased a probiotic but didnt take it till after the 3rd day of medication and the damage was done already. I got a yeast infection and I have had one before due to antibiotics so I knew what it was.
1168718 tn?1464987135 I know that anything that messes with the nature balance of things can cause a yeast infection. I usually get a yeast infection after a round of antibiotics because antibiotics tend to kill good bacteria as well as bad. That can be one culprit. Other culprits can be hormones, diabetes, the use of prednisone, the over use of douches..just to name a few. Excessive dryness down in the nether regions can cause problems as well.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am 25 & am on Prednisone(60mg),salasapyrin(500mg)& Plaquenil(200mg) per day. I have developed a large moon shaped face. I am swollen in the face & neck & hate what it is doing to my face. Will this swelling & fluid go away when I come off the steroids in five weeks? It is causing me to be depressed & family have noticed the change in my face & are worried for my health.
10160272 tn?1408211327 All questions for your vet. Best I can recall, our Westie has a lot of skin/yeast problems, prednisone is just used until the prescription is done, no tapering off. What have you determined causes the food allergy - or what are you now feeding that doesn't cause a problem. No Grain is always a good practice when buying kibble..
Avatar f tn odds are you do have a vaginal yeast infection going on and since you've been on 3 antibiotics as well as steroids, I suggest oral diflucan, 1 dose now and then repeat in 72 hours and also consider a vaginal yeast treatment too.
Avatar n tn and the response to fluconazole (Diflucan) favors yeast, even if not complete - you're right that it takes several days for symptoms to resolve completely after yeast treatment. Finally, taking prednisone indeed can predispose to yeast infections, but not herpes. Finally, usually herpes would cause specific sores. So it is a judgment call as to whether you need herpes testing. If you happen to have a positive HSV-2 result, it won't necessarily mean herpes was the cause of your symptoms.
Avatar n tn also, does anyone know if penicillin causes yeast infections?? I thought I read that it did, because it is a yeast itself and disrupts the balance. I'm just finishing up a week's worth of penicillin and have noticed an extreme dryness.
Avatar f tn He is considering reverting to Hydrocortisone (instead of Prednisone). Since prednisone stays in one's system for much longer than hydrocortisone, could he still have an ACTH Stim test? If so, how? Also, since he is feeling better (but not completely himself) he is considering hiking a mountain this week. Should I be concerned? He has not yet been given the tools or meds to give himself an injection. I am new to this forum.
Avatar n tn So I called him and he put me on prednisone 5mg 4x per day until I feel better and then I can decrease by one pill every three days. Today is my 4th day and I still can't stop coughing.........I'm so sore. I'm wondering when and how it will work. My chest xray is okay. My brother has severe asthma and he says that the prednisore will work but it does have some nasty side effects. I welcome all comments and information...........I have actually cracked a bone from coughing........
Avatar n tn A month later he developed a UTI and I had an allergic reaction that put me on strong antibiotics (doxycycline) and short term prednisone because they had no idea what I was reacting too. I developed a yeast infection-my first in 3 years and the 3rd in my entire 30 years. Cleared the infection with Monistat. I did not see my guy for two months because of work. When I returned to the states I developed a mild yeast infection after intercourse—this infection just keeps coming back.
Avatar m tn I also just sustained a back injury, and the doctor at the clinic prescribed me a short course (5 days) of Prednisone (50mg) to help with the inflammation. Tinea versicolor is uncommon in my area, so no one thought to ask if I had it, and the only reason I discovered there may be an issue is my my wife always researches my medications (I have some unsual medication allergies) to double check there are no interactions/reactions.
Avatar n tn Upon becoming sexually active at age 20, I would periodically develop (average of 1 a year) very mild male yeast infections that would ultimately respond to oral fluconazole. In addition, for as long as I can remember I have had mild yeast issues in my mouth, though these have never developed into more pronounced symptoms of thrush. My bloodwork indeed indicates a decreased response to candida antigen stimulation.
Avatar n tn We have tested for lactose, gluten, colonoscopy, celiac, malabsorption, blood work galore and stool tests. Everything looked good. He did find yeast in the stool.
Avatar f tn I had a very painful and uncomfortable yeast infection about two months ago. I went to the walk in clinic and was treated with a single pill of dilfucan. During this time I had very painful canker sores on my lips. The diflucan seemed to work for the yeast infection and the canker sores went away in about a week. About a month later I got another yeast infection. A few days after the yeast infection started I was at work and my lips felt sore and tingly.
Avatar m tn I now take 150mg of Azathioprine and 20mg of Prednisone. My doctor has tried to wean me down off the Prednisone. Today my labs did not look well, so I am staying on my regimen 20 Prednisone and 150mg Azathioprine. My fear was as soon as I came off the Prednisone my disease would flair back up. My doctors are going to try Rutuxin at some point. With my disease comes itching.
Avatar f tn Hey! I have this problem too. People told me that I had a yeast problem & I said "no way" because I thought yeast meant vaginal problems, which I do not have. I did not yeast can be thru-out your body. any way, for me, & only as a suggestion for you, I use SolarRay yeast-cleanse which you can buy at most vitamin shoppes but if you find it works for you let me know & I will look up where I buy mine for a 1/2 the price. Good Luck.
Avatar n tn They should be bathed twice weekly with Malaseb anti-yeast/anti-bacterial shampoo with a 10 minute contact time. They should be given oral anti-fungal and anti-biotic medication's for secondary skin infections. They may also require a short course of Prednisone to get the itching under control with long term Atopica, which is an anti-allergy medication that can be given forever.
Avatar m tn I have had a lot of problems with yeast because I am always on antibiotics and prednisone. I put some of the yeast cream, usually prescribed for women on the area, and within 5 hours, it has completely cleared up. I was also just prescribed Keflex for an infection I have in a cut on my ackle. Should I be concerned about having caught anything from this unprotected oral sex encounter. If so, will the Keflex, 500mg (4 x per day) prevent potential infections?
Avatar n tn It sounds like a yeast infection. Your dog will need antibiotics and a cleaning solution. It will NOT go away without the antibiotic, so please take him to the vet ASAP!
Avatar n tn after performing unprotected oral sexual encounter i developed... -1 week after: itchy, pink (which turned red over time) eyes. began in one eye and slowly happened in the other eye. not sure if connected to STD- i have had allergic conjunctivitis for 3 summers now. -3 weeks after: 5 itchy, flat, raised, circular bumps where two out vaginal lips meet. extremely itchy. had a culture done- some "yeast" found. went away on their own. herpes scrape test negative.
4413820 tn?1354213655 I have a 2 year old female American Bully that has a terrible rash and odor eminating from her skin and especially her feet. After two visits to t$200 each and scripts for prednisone and script shampoo and a change to Nutri-Max Lamb , our poor baby keeps breaking out.. I read somewhere that this could be related to a yeast infection that she may be getting. Could anyone please suggest a plan of action and a different food brand as this is not working.
Avatar f tn After having a throat infection for 13 years (Lingual Tonsillitis which has irritated the hyoid bone), I found an ENT who diagnosed me and put me on a few medications to bring down the inflammation. I was put on Prednisone for 14 days, Augmentin and generic Prilosec/omeprazole 20mg. As of a week ago wed the inflammation was down 75% and I was feeling much better after being sick for so long.
Avatar f tn He gave me a nystatin cream for a yeast infection and Bactrim for a UTI. After the last day of taking Bactrim, I developed a high fever, chills and felt really achy. My symptoms continued to worsen, until I broke out in a rash. My doctor said it was an allergic reaction to the antibiotic, and she prescribed Prednisone and Claritin. Ever since, I have had vaginal issues.
