Thanks for any help you can gimme!! And feel free to PM me as well....
Diflucan should wipe out the infection very, very soon. I once used it when I had to take mega-anti-biotic pills, due to a dog bite--and I got that infection not only in the usual area, but also in the rectum. Not fun...I never knew one could get a yeast infection THERE! Anyway, they gave 1 Diflucan, and it went away pronto. Are you sure it's a yeast infection? Could it be something else? If the Diflucan doesn't help, get to the Dr. ASAP.
Also, eating (live cultures) yogurt helped me; you;d need to do this daily, not just once--esp. if you get the infections often (if so, question WHY you do--are you diabetic?) I used to sometimes apply PLAIN (not fruit, which has SEEDS) yogurt externally to the affected area--soothing, but cold.
Try soaking in a warm tub, with 1 cup of baking soda or white vinegar. (I prefer the baking soda.) This will really make it feel better; I've done it many times over the years. It helps with the itching, too.
I feel your pain! Until I started eating a low-fat, low-sugar diet 11 years ago (eating a lot of sugar can cause yeast infections, so can diabetes), I suffered from yeast infections almot constantly.
Here's hoping you get some relief SOON!
