Hi --I have been dealing with a vaginal strep infection for weeks--I know it is hard to get rid of but for someone with IC it is a must b/c it sets the pain to heights so bad there are no meds strong enough to help! Then there is the yeast thing b/c of the antibiotics--I am at the end of my rope so if anyone has any words o wisdom--please please-please

So very sorry you are suffering!! In your condition I would love some lidocaine gel! Anyway...for the infection...you can try Garlic orally....Try to relax down there as much as you can! Drink a lot and keep in touch as to how you are doing! I sure hope you get better soon!
YEAST LIST: Boric Acid, Aci-gel (insert it at night, it maintains the ph of the vagina & yeast can't live when there's an acidic environment - or can use apple cider vinegar in water) and also washing externally with tea-tree oil diluted in water. \acidopholous tablets, a wet towel with s AZO yeast, http://www.ghtbiz.net/rescue/nocandida/lead.html, Any probotics, Flora-Q The Flora-Q is made by Kenwood Therapeutics. It contains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus paracasel, and Streptococcus thermophilus -- these are all bacteria that normally live inside your digestive tract. What you do is take a capsule a day for a few days during antibiotic treatment and then a couple afterwards, and this replaces your normal flora, making it much less likely to to get yeast infections. (Nystatin, Diflucan by prescription.)Faith, Hope, and Love,
