Does vagisil work for yeast infections, thrush, irritation, itchiness, redness, burning on the vagina?

Vagisil: Vagisil is an otc (over the counter) preparation only, and has no antifungal medication in it, so it won't "treat" a yeast infection. It is a mild topical anesthetic (benzocaine) and merely treats the symptoms. You will need a prescription from your doctor to treat the yeast, if present.
