Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You likely developed yeast or fungal infection in the genitalarea.

Antibiotics make you prone for fungal infections.

You can try over the counter Clotrimazole vaginal cream twice daily.

Please discuss with your doctor also.

Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.

If you are not allergic to clotrimazole you an use it.

Miconazole or monistat is another alternative.

Ketoconazole cream is another good option but requires prescription.

Prescription diflucan tablet orally can be another option.
