I was thinking about posting in the Pit, and just ranting about this damned yeast infection, but then I thought that maybe some of you Dopers had some wisdom to share. I’d rather be the recipient of good advice than blow off steam.
About two weeks ago, I had a bladder infection, for which I took Amoxicillin. Well, as usual when I take antibiotics, I ended up with a yeast infection. The doctor gave me a scrip for the yeast, but we don’t have insurance coverage, and it costs almost $50.00. So I decided to go with the Monistat, which is $11.00. Monistat has worked pretty well for me in the past, but it didn’t work this time! Now, to boot, I have my period, which seems to make yeast infections worse, and can sometimes bring one on.
At the beginning of the year, I stopped eating simple carbs, and had hoped that this might help limit the number of yeast infections I get. Hasn’t happened.
Do any of you know good home remedies for these damn things, or should I bite the bullet and spring the bucks for the scrip?
Thanks for your help!
