Answered by Chae Zabka 1 year ago.

Go to the store and get some Monistat or Femstat. Use the cream, not the one that looks like a pill or tablet. The cream works way better and it also helps with the itch (you can put some on the outer area also to stop the itch). In my experience the 3 day works the best because the 1 day seems to take a few days to get any relief and the 7 day....well it's self explanitory. No one wants to mess with doing that for 7 days! Good luck. I'm sure you'll be fine :) I'm sure your mom knows that antibiotics will cause a yeast infection. Many things can cause it and it is quite common. Your mom has most likely had one herself even. When I was on birth control pills I would get one about every 2-3 months. It was TERRIBLE. I haven't had one since though!

even though there are many over the counter medications that might be able to help or cure the yeast infection it would still be better to go to a clinic. for the best care you can get is from a Dr i don't believe it always be best to go to a Dr but this may be something else that can be more serious then just a infection. i work in the medical and law field i would just say for your own health and well being i recommend a clinic. modern meds do work btw its just how well ppl use them in the fact that infections are living bacteria that do grow and mutates like virus and when ppl dont use meds correctly you are making the bacteria tolerance to the medication stronger.

What is the best way to get rid of a re occuring yeast infection?
Asked by Mallie Mrochek 1 year ago.

Vaginal yeast infections can be treated with antifungal medicines that are inserted directly into the vagina as tablets, creams, ointments or suppositories. These medications include butoconazole (Femstat), clotrimazole (Clotrimaderm, Canesten), miconazole (Monistat, Monazole, Micozole), nystatin (several brand names), tioconazole (GyneCure) and terconazole (Terazole). A single dose of oral fluconazole (Diflucan Oral) also may be used, although this treatment is not recommended during pregnancy. Treatment of sex partners is not usually necessary, since most vaginal yeast infections are not transmitted sexually. However, if a male sex partner shows symptoms of Candida balanitis (redness, irritation and/or itching at the tip of the penis), he may need to be treated with an antifungal cream or ointment. Although many medications used to treat vaginal yeast infections are now available without a prescription, you should use these medications only for treating repeat infections, not for your first episode. Any woman who experiences symptoms of a vaginal infection for the first time should visit a doctor. This is important to be sure that the vaginal discharge and discomfort is caused by yeast and not sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia or trichomoniasis. About 5 percent of women with vaginal yeast infections develop recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), which is defined as four or more vaginal yeast infections in a one-year period. Although RVVC is more common in women who have diabetes or weakened immune systems, most women with RVVC have no underlying medical illness that would predispose them to recurrent Candida infections. Medical experts still are trying to determine the most effective way to treat RVVC. Currently, most doctors treat this problem with two weeks of oral medication, followed by up to six months of a lower maintenance dose. To help prevent vaginal yeast infections, you can try the following suggestions: * Keep the external genital area clean and dry. * Avoid irritating soaps (including bubble bath), vaginal sprays and douches. * Change tampons and sanitary napkins frequently. * Wear loose cotton (rather than nylon) underwear that doesn't trap moisture. * After swimming, change quickly into your dry clothing instead of sitting in your wet bathing suit for prolonged periods. * Take antibiotics only when prescribed by your doctor, and never take them for longer than your doctor directs. * If you are diabetic, try to keep tight control over your blood sugar levels. Answered by Elna Layhew 1 year ago.

Take several showers a day, change your panties several times a day, carry baby wipes with you and wipe yourself often when you go to the bathroom and also in between, don't wear tight clothing as it keeps in moisture, use a good cream oitment to fight it (you can have one prescribed from your doctor) and don't have sex which can lead to spreading it to your partner and back to you again. If you're not shy about it you can also shave your pubic area to keep it cleaner. Sometimes the infection can get on the hair which keeps you from staying clean. Answered by Evangeline Hudgins 1 year ago.

Yeah, in addition to keeping dry and clean (the dryness is important). I notice when I consumed too much sugar I was getting them often a few years ago--diet is important.

Treating a Yeast infection but feeling sick. Help!!?
I'm treating my yeast infection. I use a generic brand cream from Wal Mart (Equate)... it's the treatment for one day. I'm getting worried because I have lots of thick discharge coming out. Could the cream have not work? I'm also feeling lil pressure in my vagina area. Is this normal? Asked by Brock Puiatti 1 year ago.

The thick cream that is coming out is normal, it's the cream you put in coming out as well as the yeast infection. The difference between the 1day, 3 day and 7 day treatment is the strength of the medication. You normally have so much coming out you need to wear a pad to catch it all and change it frequently. Once you get rid of it, start eating yogurt it will stop you from getting the yeast infections so much. Answered by Hollie Prattella 1 year ago.

I understand that we're all a little overly-cautious when we're pregnant because so much is riding on the decisions we make every moment of the pregnancy. But you really think that your doctor is going to prescribe you something to take when you're pregnant that is not safe to take when you're pregnant??? Heaven help this man. Wait and see if it really turns into a full-blown infection and take it then, otherwise just hold onto the prescription if you aren't sure you really need to risk it. Answered by Staci Seeley 1 year ago.

I was told to get a pack for three days at least and the discharge is probably the excess cream that your body didn't absorb. The pressure you are feeling is probably unrelated. If you are worried, just call your doctor or hospital. They can help you and tell you what to expect and if you need to be seen or not. I would say that you are probably fine. Best of luck to you.

Yeast infection * o Most women can treat yeast infections at home with over-the-counter medications: + Miconazole (Monistat-Derm, Monistat Vaginal) + Tioconazole (Vagistat Vaginal) + Butoconazole (Femstat) + Clotrimazole (Femizole-7, Gyne-Lotrimin) o Massage these remedies into your vagina and surrounding tissues for 1-7 days depending on the formulation. If increased irritation occurs to the area, discontinue the medication immediately. o If you are pregnant, consult your doctor before using these treatments. o If symptoms continue for more than 1 week, consult your doctor. * Thrush o o In thrush, swish the antifungal agent nystatin around in your mouth. Take care to maintain excellent oral hygiene. o All objects put into a child's mouth should be sterilized after each use. o Breastfeeding mothers should be evaluated for Candida of the breast. o If you wear dentures, clean them thoroughly after each use and practice good oral hygiene.

These are the ones I would recommend: 1. Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex (clotrimazole) 2. Gynezol or Femstat (butoconazole) 3. Monistat (miconazole nitrate) 4. Vagistat-1 (tioconazole) You should be able to find these at your local pharmaceutical store (CVS, Walgreen's,etc). Just ask someone that works their and they will happily guide you. I would HIGHLY recommend that you avoid the foods with SUGARS and YEAST (breads, cookies, rice, pasta, etc). They will only prolong your infection and can even cause it to get worse.

Answered by Arlena Binet 1 year ago.

Vaginal yeast infection and vulvitis may be treated with antifungal medications that are applied topically in and around the vagina or with antifungal medications taken by mouth. Sometimes, mixed infections with more than one microbe can require combinations of treatments. Topically applied antifungal creams include: butoconazole (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Lotrimin), miconazole (Monistat), and terconazole (Terazol 3). The over-the-counter topical treatments are an option for some women when yeast is the cause of the infection. However, it should be noted that infection other than yeast can cause similar symptoms. These include bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. If symptoms are not eliminated by over-the-counter products, patients should see their doctor for evaluation. Antifungal medications that are also available as vaginal tablets include: clotrimazole (Lotrimin, Mycelex), miconazole (Monistat; Micatin), terconazole (Terazol), and nystatin (Mycostatin) Oral medications for yeast vaginitis and vulvitis include fluconazole (Diflucan). Most doctors prefer to treat vaginal yeast infections with vaginal tablets or suppositories rather than oral medications. Oral antifungal medication can cause side effects such as headache, nausea, and abdominal pain , while vaginal treatment is unlikely to cause these side effects. Oral antifungal medications are also not recommended for use during pregnancy. Good Luck! Answered by Reinaldo Sioma 1 year ago.

I've never tried that cream but I doubt it should make you more irritated. But since you know you have a yeast infection, you can go right to you're GYN because he will be able to tell right then if that's the problem. The pills will be prescribed. I don't remember what they are called but you take one the first day and one 3 days after that and it goes away. All the extra creams and over the counter treatments aren't usually the best options. Answered by Darwin Baroldy 1 year ago.

If you're sure that it's a yeast infection, then yeah, unfortunately, that's totally normal. It doesn't work right away. After three days of itchy, itchy pain, it will go away, and that's WAY better than the alternative. You can also get overnight treatments (just one day) but they seem to be less effective (and more expensive), but I'm not 100% sure. But whatever you do, try to not itch it. When I had my first YI, I scratched it until I bled. No fun at all. You CAN get these little cooling wipes that help clean up the mess and also calm the itch a little bit. But mostly, just grind your teeth and try to distract yourself. I'm sorry you're having to go through that. :( *HUGS* Good luck, it won't last forever, I promise.

Someone I know used to drink alka seltzer. I've never had an infection so I haven't tried it myself but she said it work well along with other meds i'm sure. Answered by Irena Spece 1 year ago.

The cream shouldn't make you itch at all. It should help the itching. The cream should be put only around the area and never inside, that could be a problem if you put it inside of you. The monistat applicator is what goes inside of you. Answered by Roselyn Heymann 1 year ago.

I'm 14 year old girl, and I haven't had sex so I'm pretty sure its a yeast infection. believe me if I could I wouldn't even be on here looking for help, but I don't have a mum to go to for advice, and like hell i'm asking my dad. I went to the chemist today and I didn't even know what the hell i was looking for! so please if you have any advice or names of creams you know of, i would appreciate it alot.

These are the ones I would recommend: 1. Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex (clotrimazole) 2. Gynezol or Femstat (butoconazole) 3. Monistat (miconazole nitrate) 4. Vagistat-1 (tioconazole) You should be able to find these at your local pharmaceutical store (CVS, Walgreen's,etc). Just ask someone that works their and they will happily guide you. I would HIGHLY recommend that you avoid the foods with SUGARS and YEAST (breads, cookies, rice, pasta, etc). They will only prolong your infection and can even cause it to get worse. Eat lots of leafy green veg's so you can balance your ph levels in your body. Answered by Danette Peatry 1 year ago.

What Do I Do About A Yeast Infection?

Asked by Argentina Westrope 1 year ago.

Ok, so I found out today that I have a yeast infection. This is the first time I have ever had one. I went to walmart and stocked up on lots of yogurt and I bought a monostat 3 day medicine kit. Ok, so I inserted the monostat cream and it is making me itch more than ever. It is so itchy and I am trying my hardest to refrain from itching it. Is this normal to itch after insterting the cream?

I wasn't even itching that much until I used the applicator, but I am noticing when I sit down it's much better. Thanks for the advice everyone. I really do appreciate it.

Vaginal yeast infection and vulvitis may be treated with antifungal medications that are applied topically in and around the vagina or with antifungal medications taken by mouth. Sometimes, mixed infections with more than one microbe can require combinations of treatments. Topically applied antifungal creams include: butoconazole (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Lotrimin), miconazole (Monistat), and terconazole (Terazol 3). The over-the-counter topical treatments are an option for some women when yeast is the cause of the infection. However, it should be noted that infection other than yeast can cause similar symptoms. These include bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. If symptoms are not eliminated by over-the-counter products, patients should see their doctor for evaluation. Antifungal medications that are also available as vaginal tablets include: clotrimazole (Lotrimin, Mycelex), miconazole (Monistat; Micatin), terconazole (Terazol), and nystatin (Mycostatin) Oral medications for yeast vaginitis and vulvitis include fluconazole (Diflucan). Most doctors prefer to treat vaginal yeast infections with vaginal tablets or suppositories rather than oral medications. Oral antifungal medication can cause side effects such as headache, nausea, and abdominal pain , while vaginal treatment is unlikely to cause these side effects. Oral antifungal medications are also not recommended for use during pregnancy. Good Luck! Answered by Chanel Sorotzkin 1 year ago.

I've never tried that cream but I doubt it should make you more irritated. But since you know you have a yeast infection, you can go right to you're GYN because he will be able to tell right then if that's the problem. The pills will be prescribed. I don't remember what they are called but you take one the first day and one 3 days after that and it goes away. All the extra creams and over the counter treatments aren't usually the best options. Answered by Elliott Hugill 1 year ago.

If you're sure that it's a yeast infection, then yeah, unfortunately, that's totally normal. It doesn't work right away. After three days of itchy, itchy pain, it will go away, and that's WAY better than the alternative. You can also get overnight treatments (just one day) but they seem to be less effective (and more expensive), but I'm not 100% sure. But whatever you do, try to not itch it. When I had my first YI, I scratched it until I bled. No fun at all. You CAN get these little cooling wipes that help clean up the mess and also calm the itch a little bit. But mostly, just grind your teeth and try to distract yourself. I'm sorry you're having to go through that. :( *HUGS* Good luck, it won't last forever, I promise.

Someone I know used to drink alka seltzer. I've never had an infection so I haven't tried it myself but she said it work well along with other meds i'm sure. Answered by Rhea Fichera 1 year ago.

The cream shouldn't make you itch at all. It should help the itching. The cream should be put only around the area and never inside, that could be a problem if you put it inside of you. The monistat applicator is what goes inside of you. Answered by Billi Molchan 1 year ago.
