Is this boric acid safe to use?

Basically, I've been on antibiotics off and on for a few weeks and I have a persistent yeast infection. My problem is that I have to take antibiotics for the next 2 1/2 weeks and I'd really like to get rid of this thing, if possible. I've read about treating YIs with boric acid on VP and other places and I wanted to try that. I special ordered boric acid from my Target pharmacy and they said it was safe to use, but I don't really trust the people that work there. It's a Humco product that's Granular NF and it has no information about its concentration. I've looked at similar products online that say their concentration is 100% so I'm worried about putting this in my body.  I know that the recommended concentration is 2% or less.

Does anyone else have experience with this product? Is it safe to use?
Should I look for gel caps to make a suppository? Or is it safer to dilute the granules with water and soak a tampon in the solution?

I've looked everywhere for an answer to this question and though most of the information I can find like the Humco Material Safety Data Sheet  makes me think it's safe, I'm just looking for a more conclusive answer.
