Comment:
I am diabetic and develop yeast infections more frequently than most. Diflucan which is used for treatment has caused a very dark (black) circle around my lower lip and chin.

Comment:
Had to take amoxycilin after surgery, and I got a horrible yeast infection. Went to my gyno afterwards, and she said that particular antibiotic is known to cause yeast infections. So she prescribed 2 doses of Diflucan. First dose made me nauseous, but I thought, "hey, what's a little nausea if it clears this up." Gave me a little relief.
