Natural yeast infection treatment? I'm allergic to monistat..

Non-azole drugs: There are no "natural" treatments likely to help much. There are non-azole treatments, such as nystatin, caspofungin, and flucytosine.

Or maybe your allergy isn't to miconazole per se, but other ingredients in the cream; you could try other azoles (clotrimazole, terconazole, etc), or oral fluconazole (Diflucan). ...Read more
