Here's a list.: These are reasonable choices: Gyne-Lotrimin or Mycelex (clotrimazole) Gynezol or Femstat (butoconazole) Monistat (miconazole nitrate) Vagistat-1 (tioconazole). If your symptoms persist after treatment, you might have the wrong diagnosis, since other disorders can resemble vaginal yeast infection. If symptoms persist, see your doctor.
