I was prescribed clindamycin for a tooth infection and received a yeast infection as a surprise. I haven't had one for almost 20 years.

I have vaginal yeast infection since August 2016. I am so worried about my health. I am worried about it because I would like to have a baby in the future.

Usually when I eat too much sugary foods I get a yeast infection. I have one now and I ate too much honey and bananas the past few days! Like to kick myself for that! :)

I used to love taking baths, but the doctor told me this might provoke my yeast infections so now I'm back to showers only.

I'm taking amoxicillin for dental abscess. I traded one problem for another.
