Well, my doctor gave me some antibiotic cream and a couple applicators to cure a bacterial infection. Only problem is that before he gave me the medicine, I didn't have swollen vaginal lymph nodes and my vagina wasn't half as itchy as it is now.

I know that sometimes bacterial infections mimic yeast infections, but because these symptoms didn't pop up until halfway through treatment, I can't help but wonder if the antibiotics he had me on didn't cause a yeast infection. Should I go for some monistat, or wait until a few days after treatment?

Help please! (And thanks)

Hi Jawanna: You may want to call your Pharmacist to ask him/her if you might have an allergy to this medication...This can happen and they should be able to help you...If it continues I would get back to your doctor...Take care...
