Having strep throat and yeast infection. Have ITP. Will monistat affect the platelet count?

I have Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) which means my immune system takes platelets. My platelet count is currently normal. I have been on antibiotics for a week for strep throat and have a yeast infection. I have been reading that Monistat might not be good for my platelets. Is there any medicine for yeast infection which doesn t cause thinning of the blood?

Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
From the literature search that I have done, I can tell you that monistat does not have any effect on platelet count so you can safely use it.
Kindest Regards
