Yeast infections: First find the cause. Yeast infections are not normal. Diabetes? Immunodeficiency? Reinfections? Pretty much all otc medicines will cure a simple yeast infection as long as you are immunocompetent and hygienic.

Monastat: Options include 1, 3 or 7 day treatments. Usually available otc at most pharmacies and even grocery stores.
