I've been put on an antibiotic for my finger infection. So far, the medication is doing a great job. The white part is getting smaller. I'm hoping to be told that I can definitely stop the medication after November 21st. I miss some foods and drinks! With this one medication, you can't have caffeine items.

Oh dear! I've not heard of antibiotics interacting with caffeine. I guess you cannot have coffee, tea, cola and chocolate and perhaps some other food stuffs. It's also a long time to be on antibiotics. Make sure you have to probiotics so that your gut health doesn't go out of kilter because you could develop thrush.
Take some probiotics to stop the good bacteria being killed off and over taken by the bad bacteria. Antibiotics kills the good and bad bacteria in the gut but if the balance is out of kilter the bad bacteria can continue to grow and cause vaginal thrush. I got really bad thrush this Summer because I'd been on 2 courses of strong antibiotics for a chest infection and then tonsilitis. It took weeks of trying to get it under control with antifungal tablets from my GP, probitoics and then a natural herbal remedy from the health food shop. Plus, cutting out all carbs to bring my blood sugars down and eating loads of garlic, sometimes raw.
