Monstat: You can start with over the counter monostat. Avoid tight fitted clothing, take probiotics, change out of wet clothes immediately, and do not douche. If infection persists, consult you doctor for stronger treatment and to confirm yeast infection.

Initially OTCproduct: Initially, you can try an over the counter product like Monistat, however, it may not work. The best approach is to confirm the infection in a GYN MD's office and seek a prescription product which will have more efficacy.
