yeast and bacterial infection

Guest mom with acne

Hey, has anyone gotten a yeast infection and also a bacterial infection while on accutane. I am almost finished with my 2nd box of Sotret. Help!! I have been to gynecologist, and got 2 different prescriptions. Anyone know anything else I can do to prevent these infections?

Garlic or more specifically allicin, should help prevent both bacterial and yeast infections. Be carefull about mixing things with accutane, i personally wouldn't take anything else unless it was life threatening or something which is going to scar etc while on accutane.

If you have increased mucus membrane dryness, lubrication will help along with better hydration. Dry mucus membranes are more prone to infection (this includes the vagina) and most definitely the nares/sinuses.

You could also ask your doctor to switch you from Sotret to another generic or brand of isotretinoin as manufacturing problems were found in the labs/factories of the company that makes Sotret.

I am really glad to see this post. I am taking Claravis, and I swear to God I am itchier "down there" than I have ever been. At first I thought "yeast infection", then I wondered if it was dryness. The thought of relations with my husband is horrifying with the irritation I have.
