Help! BA antibiotics have caused my vagina to become irritated and swollen.What can I do?
Thank you for your question. You have yeast infection in your vagina caused by your antibiotics. It would always be best to visit your board-certified plastic surgeon
Thank you for the question. It sounds like your antibiotics have caused a yeast infection in your vagina. It would always be best to visit
your board-certified plastic surgeon or a physician and get a full assessment for your
concerns. Best of luck. Dr. Michael
in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess
your needs and provide true medical advice.
I am so sorry that you are so uncomfortable. It is probably a yeast infection from the antibiotics which can be treated over the counter. However, if that doesn't work, you will need to make an appointment to see your Ob/Gyn. Best, Dr. Nazarian
I hope you were able to contact your surgeon
because you should have a number you can all ANYTIME if you develop concerns following an operation. First thing to ask is if your antibiotics are needed. Most surgeons would not have you take antibiotics beyond a day but you may have had extenuating circumstances. If your irritation is beyond a yeast infection (which I would assume you know what it is like), you would have to see your primary physician or GYN doctor for the proper diagnosis and treatment. I hope you were able to get this taken care of this past weekend and are not still having problems.
Possible yeast infection
Because you were on antibiotics for your breast augmentation, it is possible those antibiotics killed off the bacteria in your vagina as well, causing a yeast infection. I would touch base with your plastic surgeon or primary care doctor as a dose of diflucan may be warranted. There should be a way to talk to your physician after hours, or there should be someone covering for them. All the best
Vaginal irritation 3 days after surgery....
The first thing to do is call your surgeon. Most doctors have an answering service that you can call that will contact him for you in an emergency. I give all my patients my cell phone number so they can contact me at any time if there are problems or concerns. A single dose of a prescription medication can usually solve this issue. Call your surgeon.
Post op antibiotics complications
It does sounds you could have a yeast infection. This is common as the antibiotics kill off bacteria and yeast can easily overgrow, especially if you are prone to yeast infections already. Vaginal yeast infection medications are over the counter and if you have symptoms, it doesn't hurt go ahead and start with over the counter medications.
If symptoms do not subside by Monday morning, I would call your primary care doctor or gynecologist.
Of course it could be. Unfortunately, no one will be able to definitively say over the internet. If you cannot wait until Monday, you will need to seek evaluation/care this weekend.
