hi lol , methotrexate can cause yeast infections , not that common , how much folic acid you take , I would talk to your consultant , if your ESR & CRP is coming down then you should be feeling a bit better & maybe reducing your MTX will help

Hi lol, I got yeast infections on Mtx, too, and Nystatin didn't help. I had to take an oral anti-fungal, which worked. I can't help more than that, sorry.
