Antifungal: If you have been previously diagnosed by a doctor with a yeast infection then common anti-fungal vaginal remedies include 1 day, 3 days, 7 days regimens ( monistat, Gyne-Lotrimin etc). These all work well just be sure to complete regimen. Please see your doctor for proper diagnosis if this is your first infection. Take care of yourself.
