Hi. I got a tattoo a couple of months ago and it became infected. I went to urgent care where they prescribed some antibiotics. I finished the medication like I was supposed to, the redness has gone away. It looked like it was starting to heal but at night it itches real bad and burns like it is on fire. For the last few weeks it has been swelling so I have been trying to have it elevated as much as possible. Now my other foot is swelling more than the original one. Is this cause to be concerned about?

I had a yeast Infection caused by antibiotics (Cephalexin 500 MG Capsule), because of this I was prescribed Fluconazole oral 200 MG Tablet. I took the tablet yesterday and now it seems I m spotting? I had my period at the beginning of this month. Is this a side effect I should be worried about?

Thankyou! I suffer from chronic candidiasis, and although have been meds free for 6 years, I recently got vaginal thrush and have been treated with 100mg Fluconazole daily for 14 days. I also have psoriasis there, diagnosed years ago, which I found a natural cream for which usually works. However, the last few days it has been burning terribly, and the cream is not working/helping. I only finished the Fluconazole yesterday, so doubt its thrush. Can I try using hydrocortisone cream 1% or will that bring the thrush back?
