They all do: Check out http://www.Monistat.Com/monistat-products for various Monistat options. However, since you're posting your question as a 35yo male, do realize that Monistat is intended for vaginal yeast infection, not other types of yeast infection that might occur elsewhere (in men).

May or may not: Irritate it more, won't do any good if it is not yeast so if you are not sure, see your gyn or an urgent visit center if u need to be seen this holiday weekend.
