I think my asthma medicines are causing yeast infection and this also may be causing problems with my finger nails.

I noticed I had a foul-looking discharge and thought it was maybe caused by pantyliners and stopped wearing them but the problem persisted. My doctor then gave me A-POR vaginal cream, metazol and fluconazole capsules and I'm happy to say they've worked!

My yeast infection came with a very foul smell and yellow like discharge. I also found myself wanting to urinate a lot. I just started my medication. It's a capsule. I have to take one now and take the other next week.

I've noticed a thick milky discharge that after some days turned into milky cottage cheesy looking discharge. It would itch as athletes feet does and upon constant rubbing (which is not recommended) to try and relieve the itching, a burning sensation would soon follow. Along with the burning sensation would come open skin caused by the rubbing. It was very painful when urinating/during intercourse.

When I had vaginal candidiasis, I experienced initially, tiny rashes, burning itching, smelling discharge and cracking of vulva. My private part was very painful that I found it difficult to insert tablets when I started treatment.
