Jock itch is a yeast infection, but that is what it is called on a man. I'm just wondering if the two symptoms could be connected.
Asked by Joetta Septon 3 months ago.
I was diagnosed with prostatitis 10 months ago. I went on levaquin and was fine, a week later I developed frequent urination (once every hour or two, but not at night). I was then put on levaquin for antoher month to no avail. I then saw a urologist, had no other symptoms but the frequent urination. he put me on Bactrim for a month but thought we werer over-treating it. After that saw a different uro that put me on clindamycin for 10 days. still urinating. went back to the original uro and he thought it was a "self-fullfilling prophecy". then saw a therapist, it has slightly helped, she thinks it is OCD. I recently got a sinus infection and was put on zithromax. I am now off of it but the frequnet urination has become worse again and have also developed jock itch. Could this be some sort of yeast overgrowth causing the frequent urination due to overuse of anitbiotics? I was wondering if difulcan would help. I am seeing the uro this week but have little faith.

I've had uro problems all my life and now i use the overcounter drug uristat when i pee and it hurts, burns...all i know within 5 minutes the burning and constinence is gone til i see a doctor. I keep it in my car, purse, home because I hate that uro problem and its a immediate remedy...I'm also a sufferer of yeast since I was 12 years old...yeah i have it bad but with modern technology my life is much better. I use Diflucan and it works well most results for me are not instant but within a few hours..my doc keeps my refills available all year long since i get yeast from everything....looking at sweets and sugar too long gives me yeast and I have been checked by my doctor for diabetes, AIDS, HIV, everything I have checkups every 6 months...I'm good but just can't escape yeast and uro's... when you take the diflucan it will not stop the itch immediately so i reccommend putting pure yoghurt or a yeast ointment that works...a store brand yeast medicine just as good....when I'm hit with a yeast attack I start eating pure yoghurt...if i itch and run out of ointment i put the live cultures(yoghurt right on the itch and it helps). then i call the pharmacy and let them know i need to pick up my refill immediately...i hope this help...also invest in a mirror that you can checkout your infected area...yeast looks milky and white looking not a pretty site after the itchies...it could get swollen too... oh yeah and antibotics do cause yeast especially clindamicyn...normally docs prescribe diflucan or other yeast med at the same time after having over 100 yeast infections and knowing my body...i've become my own GYN and my doc respects that...i still get my checkups though since i'm not that good....

The jock itch could be from the frequent use of antibiotics. Continue with the therapist as it is helping. If antibiotics haven't helped with the prostatitis, it may not be bacterial. It could have something to do with your pelvic floor muscles or tension. Look into it. Use a topical for the jock itch if you like. There are many OTCs to choose from. Diflucan is one of the oral meds prescribed for more severe cases and for those that don't respond to topical treatment. Answered by Angella Qazi 3 months ago.
yes it could be related to antibiotic usage, but no doctor in his right mind is going to prescribe diflucan for jock itch. the medication has too many potentially bad side effects to use. get yourself a topical ointment. Answered by Tynisha Lemere 3 months ago.

Diflucan is Pregnancy Category C The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that have not been studied in pregnant humans but that do appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. Also, medicines that have not been studied in any pregnant women or animals are automatically given a pregnancy Category C rating. When given to pregnant rats or rabbits, Diflucan caused the following problems: Reduced weight gain in the mother Miscarriages Increased weight of the placenta Birth defects, such as cleft palate and head or face abnormalities. There have been a few reports of multiple, serious birth defects in infants whose mothers took Diflucan in early pregnancy (usually high doses for an extended period of time). Because the birth defects were distinctive and similar in these cases, it is assumed that the medication probably caused the defects. However, statistics generally do indicate that short-term use (such as the single dose used to treat vaginal yeast infections) does not seem to cause such problems. Your Dr will not give you something that is unsafe for your baby. Since you are 6 months along and you are only taking it this one time, I doubt it will cause any harm. If you uncomfortable taking it, don't. Ask your Dr for something else. Answered by Julian Benzango 3 months ago.
Call your doctor's office back just to be sure. I doubt they would have prescribed it to you if there would be potential harm to the baby but sometimes they don't think. Better to double check. I just googled it and it doesn't look like you should take it, but again, talk to your doctor or call your OB if the family doctor prescribed it. Answered by Valentina Sliffe 3 months ago.
I would say, don't take it I just went to safefetus.com and they rate the drug as a "C" -- as in, take only if the benefits outweigh the risks. It doesn't sound like a pregnancy-safe drug Answered by Shayna Samberg 3 months ago.
Diflucan (yeast infection)?
so I'm taking this antibiotic for a yeast infection and before the medicine I did not have any discharge only that fishy odor...now i have that yellowish thick white discharge is this suppose to happen after taking the antibiotics?
Asked by Lavern Acker 3 months ago.
Diflucan is not an antibiotic. It's an antifungal medication which works on mild yeast infections and remains at an effective level for 3-5 days. Sometimes it is necessary to use vaginal treatments along with the diflucan. Perhaps what you have been dealing with is not a mild infection, but something more serious. I would try using the OTC vaginal treatments. If they don't work, call your doctor back. Side note: Antibiotics are frequently the cause of yeast infections. Normally there is a balance between the natural yeast and bacteria in the vagina. When you take antibiotics, it kills off much of the bacteria allowing the yeast to start growing rapidly, causing a yeast infection. Answered by Alexia Guagliardo 3 months ago.
Antibiotics are not used to treat a yeast infection. Taking antibiotics can cause a yeast infection. Yellow discharge usually means a bacterial infection and antifiotics are used to treat a bacertial infection. Different types of infections: Signs of yeast infections: White, cottage cheese-like discharge Swelling and pain around the vulva Intense itching Signs of bacterial vaginosis: A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap Itching or burning Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva Signs of trichomoniasis A watery, yellowish or greenish bubbly discharge An unpleasant odor Pain and itching when urinating Most apparent after your period Answered by Laverna Senate 3 months ago.
that is part of the yeast infection. You may have to take another Diflucan. Sometimes, you have to take it a few times before it clears up all the way. The discharge is the yeast infection coming out. Try a douche, if it itches, use a yeast cream. Answered by Cherise Stagowski 3 months ago.
In my experience with that particular medication, no. I took Diflucan twice and each time I "dried up" by the next day. However, it usually took me two to three days to feel free of any irritation caused by the infection. Best bet is to call your doc and ask some questions. Or, even call your local pharmacy.

Asked by Elodia Ginard 3 months ago.
My first question is how bad is the infection? If it is real bad, I would go to the doctor even though you sound against it. I f it is in the first stages, you can eat yogurt like regular Dannon. Eat 1-2 cups a day. You MUST change your diet and eliminate any yeast/carbs and alcoholic beverages. Drink lots of water and tea and eat lots of vegetables and fruits. Meat is ok as well. No breads or pastries or starchy foods. Wear lose fitting pants/skirts, wash with hypoallergenic washes (no dyes or perfumes), and refrain from sexual activity. Usually the best thing to clear it up is something like Monistat. But, try the other stuff as well. Don't let the infection get bad because it can eventually damage your reproductive organs and make you very ill. Good luck. Answered by Karleen Rousseau 3 months ago.

I have been in and out of planned parenthood for never ending yeast infections which then trigger bacterial infections and the cycle continues. I went in for a yeast infection about 2 weeks ago and took 1 dose of Diflucan on Wednesday, another on Saturday, and ANOTHER this past Monday. It's now Thursday and I'm still experiencing a thick white discharge. Doesn't seem to have any smell but there is an abundance. I'm wondering if there are underlying conditions to cause reoccuring infections like this? My partner and I have been obstaining until it clears up and every time I go to the doctors it's another copay, another prescription and they never mention any type concern. PLEASE HELP! Answered by Milly Ascher 3 months ago.
Diflucan how many mg per pill? This is a strong antifungal and if it is a 100 or 150 mg pill, it should only be taken once every seven days. I don't know who has told you to take it so frequently. I think now you have developed sensitivity to the medicine and so it won't help but harm. When a person develops sensitivity to Diflucan, he or she will develop a yeast infection if the medicine is taken or the existing one will get worse. I think the same is happening with you. The yeast has started to feed on the excess Diflucan in your system. Stop it right away, wait for some time and if it does not get better stop self medicating and ask the doctor about it.

Can a child take Diflucan?
I am curious about this because I heard someone talking about giving this to their child. Is this safe? Thanks in advance.
Asked by Stefanie Swenk 3 months ago.
Diflucan (Fluconazole) may be administered to children. The dose depends on the age and weight of the child, the infection being treated (also used to prevent infection in bone marrow transplant patients), etc. However, if the child is allergic to this class of drugs, then Diflucan would be a contraindication and should not be used.

Has anyone used diflucan?
monistat jus isnt working for me. can diflucan be bought over the counter or is it a prescription drug? does it work good?
Asked by Tyra Oyler 3 months ago.
Diflucan is a prescription. If you have recently had antibiotics, telephone call to drs office should be sufficient to get this prescription. Monistat does not stop all yeast infections. Change brands, use dilute vinegar douche (store bought is fine), then the vaginal cream you have bought. On rare occasions, you may need a prescription strength vaginal cream and/or Difulcan.

I just started a month long course of antibiotics (doxycycline). I am only on the second day and feeling a yeast infection coming on. My doc is going to call in Diflucan. How long will the Diflucan last? Will it keep me from continuing to get yeast infections during this course of antibiotics, or will I have to take it more than once? Answered by Jean Waneka 3 months ago.
I gave up on diflucan, I always have to take at lease 2 doses of it and use a cream. My doc always tells me that is pretty normal. I would say a cream and an incert would be better for you because as soon as the diflucan starts to work, if it does, the antibiotics will not allow the ph level to get back normal. the antibiotics will be in your system for at least a week after you stop taking them. so as long as thery are in your system the yeast infection probly wont go away fully. there are a few natural ways that might accually work better. Get some plain yogurt and use that down there. it sounds yucky but it works very well, infact it works faster and I havnt had a yeast infection since I treated my last one like this. It is messy but just use a panty liner and you should be good and do it like you would a monistat incert right before you go to bed. There are also some suppliments you can take to help but i dont remember the name of them it is acid-something. if you google yeast infections you should be able to find it.
