I'm currently prescribed on Gynozole-1 due to a yeast infection. Can I use Monistat to help relieve the itchy/burning side effects during treatment?

I'm currently prescribed on Gynozole-1 due to a yeast infection. Can I use Monistat to help relieve the itchy/burning side effects during treatment?

Won't help: There is no point in adding Monistat to Gynazole. Both are "azole" drugs (miconazole and butaconazole, respectively); neither works better than the other, and neither is designed to control itching. However, once on treatment, you could safely add an over-the-counter cortisone cream. Cortisone makes yeast worse if used alone, but safe and usually effective when used with azole treatment.

Vagina pain: Okay Janet, you have vulvovaginitis and we don't know why. If it's not yeast or bacteria it could be viral, like herpes. If you haven't seen an Ob/Gyn then I would see one, they see more vaginal infections than most doctors and might recognize your problem. They can also do a PAP and other tests to see what is causing your pain. Good luck. Read more

See: See your gynecologist or womens health care provider. Many primary care providers can perform women's health exams as well. If you are suffering from a sexually transmitted infection, then it will be crucial to diagnose appropriately. If diagnosed, your provider will most likely put you on an antibiotic regimen, and can provide a prescription for a topical ointment that can help soothe the skin. Do this right away because an untreated STI can cause terrible effects on the reproductive organs. Read more

What can I do about vaginal odor that came back after yeast infection treatment?

See your Gyn: Bacterial vaginosis is more likely than yeast. Some yeast treatments will briefly make it seem better. If the yeast medication didn't work, you need to be seen and have an exam to find out for sure what it is. Best wishes! Read more
