Pills or creams: Over the counter anti-fungal creams will treat most yeast infections. Sometimes systemic meds (oral pills) are needed. If persistent, one should be evaluated to rule out diseases such as diabetes.

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Medication: You can get a yeast infection in many places in the body such as your scalp, toenails, skin, vagina, etc. Each has a different treatment. Assuming you have a vaginal yeast infection, there are very effective over-the-counter medications you can get at a pharmacy such as Monostat. Or you can see a doctor and get a prescription pill or cream. A short treatment will usually get rid of it.
