Why do I keep getting vaginal infections?

Yeast infections

Candida is a form of yeast infection that is common to people with FMS – among others. It frequently occurs when you are taking antibiotics for other purposes. The antibiotics seem to destroy not only the bad germs but those necessary to prevent yeast infections. If you suffer this persistently, you should see a doctor, because the infection can spread and become severe. There is a medication called Diflucan which is a one pill dose – this is supposedly sufficient to kill most vaginal yeast infections. Acidophilus, available over the counter also helps.
