Subsequent to using the miconazole nitrate vaginal insert (egg) I had a bad discharge, why?

Subsequent to using the miconazole nitrate vaginal insert (egg) I had a bad discharge, why?

Vaginal discharge: Miconazole inserts liquify in the vagina, so maybe it's the medication. If not, your apparent yeast infection might have been something else; or you had both yeast plus another infection. Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge should be professionally evaluated. STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trich) are a concern if at risk, e.g. new or unsafe partner. See MD if you remain uncertain. ...Read more

I got a boil can I use any of these for boils neomycin, saframycin and miconazole nitrate can I use any of them to cure boils?

NO: A single, isolated boil will heal faster when it drains. If it does not drain on its own, hot soaks may help. A dr can drain it with simple surgery. Antibiotics do not help. Miconazole is for yeast ; fungus, not boils. The other 2 should never be used on skin because they are useless that way and are prone to cause allergic reactions. ...Read more

I have had jock itch for over a week, I've been treating with econazole nitrate for 11 days and using miconazole nitrate powder. Is it ok to have sex or will I transfer this to my partner?

I have had jock itch for over a week, I've been treating with econazole nitrate for 11 days and using miconazole nitrate powder. Is it ok to have sex or will I transfer this to my partner?

No risk, no worries: The fungi that cause jock itch are around all the time anyway, whether or not someone has obvious jock itch. Most people carry them, and therefore exposure to somone with active jock itch doesn't increase their risk. It's best to avoid sex in severe infections with inflammation, soreness, weeping fissures, etc -- but this is mostly for comfort, not partner protection. No worries. ...Read more
