Yup, I agree 100%. Get on those antibiotics asap. There is nothing to worry about with them and your lupus. Not treating the infection will cause your lupus to flare up. I just finished a round of antibiotics for a bladder infection a couple weeks ago. I feel SO much better in every way.
I also take a daily probiotic (acidophilus) to make sure the "yeast" stays at bay. Rosie and Babs are dead on. If you can eat lots of yogurt or get a probiotic from a health food store it's really beneficial.
Get well soon!
