Allergy? Herpes?: A blstering rash in this part of the body always raises the possibility of genital herpes, and herpes sometimes is initially misdiagnosed as yeast. Or it's just severe yeast that needs more or different treatment. Or maybe you an allergic reaction to the monistat cream. Don't take chances: see your doctor for professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

Vaginal Yeast: Monistat 7 is a 7 day treatment for a vaginal yeast infection. It is used by inserting an applicatorful of the medication in the vagina at bedtime for 7 days.

If you're told to get Monistat- is it the cream or the applicators? And if applicators then 1 or 3 or 7? Will 1 being stronger work faster?

If you're told to get Monistat- is it the cream or the applicators? And if applicators then 1 or 3 or 7? Will 1 being stronger work faster?

Depends: The applicator is for vaginal insert, so get it if you have vaginal itch or discharge. If the infection is only on the outside, then the cream will be sufficient. I personally get the 7 days, even though you may only need one dose. You will have left over for the next time. ...Read more

I've found the Monistat cream to be weak and not effective. Can I use Vagisil now?

Are you sure that: You have a yeast infection? If not, having the diagnosis confirmed by your physician makes sense. Different types of vaginal problems require different medical interventions. Yeast can present with clumpy, white vaginal discharge to a watery, white discharge. Sometimes a discharge is not apparent. There is no odor. It can cause swelling and redness of vulva along with itching and burning pain. ...Read more

I jusr started usinf Monistat tonight and used the itch cream and it's still itchy, is that normal?

Listen to your body: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is an antihistamine that will relieve itching due to elevated levels of histamine. Itching caused by yeast overgrowth is probably not caused by histamine. Monostat will treat a yeast infection but it may take 2-3 days to get a positive response. Coconut oil kills yeast and may be able to moisten irritated vaginal tissues. ...Read more

I took monistat 3 but didn't use the itch cream that came in the box. It took all the symptoms away except I still have a little itch. Do I need to us?

Itching to use it?: If you are still itching, why not go ahead and use the cream. If the itching continues post use, see a MD to find out if it was a failed Rx for a yeast infection or not. The MD can provide a more effective Rx. If needed. ...Read more

I've been taking the 7 day monistat cream and I skipped last night and I had sex last night, what is going to happen now? & should I still continue to take it?

I've been taking the 7 day monistat cream and I skipped last night and I had sex last night, what is going to happen now? & should I still continue to take it?

No worries: Missing one day of treatment for a vaginal yeast infection shouldn't make any difference. Neither will having sex. Yeast infections usually don't come from sex partners. Go ahead and use the last dose. ...Read more

I used monistat 1 on monday and I am having a little bleeding with what looks like the rest of the cream. How long the cream takes to go away?

A Rx "washout": If you are bleeding post Monistat Rx and the cream is being "washed out" then the infection may not be cleared as the medication has not had enough time to work. Either wait for the bleeding to stop to see if the itching continues and repeat the Monistat or see a MD for evaluation. ...Read more

Taking BV cream right now, going to take Monistat cream when I'm done. How long should I wait after to start the vaginal Monistat cream? A week?

Taking BV cream right now, going to take Monistat cream when I'm done. How long should I wait after to start the vaginal Monistat cream? A week?

Don't have to: You don't necessarily have to wait. If you have a yeast infection there is no reason to have to wait. As a matter of fact, since yeast is usually much more symptomatic, I usually have my patients treat it first and then use the vaginal medicine for BV as soon as they finish the yeast meds. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I used monistat 1 ovule. Now have a redish pink tissue like discharge with the cream. Wondering if I can I use a duesche to clear the discharge faster?

Don't douche!: You probably have something other than yeast; or you yeast plus something else. Yeast causes little vaginal discharge, white and thick, not colored. Discharge like yours suggests another infection, like an STD (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas). Vaginal douching always is unhealthy and especially dangerous in presence of STD or other infection (flushes infection into uterus and tubes). ...Read more
