If you have already treated your vaginal yeast infection with canestan (clotrimazole) and your symptoms have not disappeared, it may not actually be a yeast infection. You might consider visiting your doctor to determine if there is a different diagnosis. Oregano oil will not treat a yeast infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I used coconut oil for lubricant 5 days ago, and my vagina/vulva is burning, itchy, swollen, painful. I used monostat 1, and still feel uncomfortable.
Allergic reaction: I agree that you should never use coconut oil as a vaginal lubricant. I suggest careful washing with baby soap to remove any remnants and then use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical 1% hydro cortisone to the external vaginal area. See your GYN on Monday. Stop th Monistst and use Sitz baths ( 2 lbs of epsom salts in 6-8 inches of warm water, for 15 minutes 3-4 times a day. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You probably need either an antifungal or antibiotic cream Best to check with a doctor, but if you want to try to treat yourself, start with an antifungal. A pharmacist can help, or such products will be stocked near products for jock itch or athlete's foot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I used baby oil while intercourse and now i have a weird shredd paper like substance in my vagina what should i do?
Lubricants: First, don't use baby oil for sex. You need to use something meant for vaginal lubrication that is water based like K Y liquid or astroglide. Even silicone based lubes are better and less irritating than oil. This could be a yeast infection or reaction to the baby oil. I would see a gynecologist to determine which it is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
