Q.

Can a yeast infection cause blisters?

I was prescribed a really strong antibiotic because I had surgery a few weeks ago. The antibiotics caused me to get a severe yeast infection in which I ended up going to see a doctor over. The doctor did a urine and blood test and came back with it being a yeast infection, which I expected. However, he did not do a vaginal exam .. he did put me on diflucan and it has helped tremendously but tonight after I showered I noticed blister like bumps except they didn't have the puss looking stuff? Help

This is an interesting question.

A blood test is not how yeast infection is diagnosed. Normally, a vaginal swab is taken and tested. Sometimes, health care providers diagnose a yeast infection simply based on history (recently took antibiotics) with a verbal report of symptoms ("now I have a vaginal discharge with itching"). A urine test also would not detect a vaginal yeast infection.

Thus, I'd recommend you return to your health care provider for an examination. Genital blisters are not a normal feature of a yeast infection, but they can be a sign of a sexually transmitted disease. You deserve to find out exactly what's going on down there!

Wishing you all the best!
