It takes a few days: If it has only been 1-2 days, give it more time; the drug should kick in soon. However, 10-15% of vaginal yeast infections are caused by yeasts commonly resistant to miconazole (Monistat®) and other "azole" drugs; if no better in a few days, alternate treatment may be necessary. Also, if at risk for STD, make sure your doc has considered herpes, which sometimes can mimic severe yeast infection. ...Read more

Yeast infection?: The most likely cause of such symptoms is a yeast infection, usually a yeast named Candida. Most women have vaginal yeast infections at one time or another. If you have been on an antibiotic recently, that could trigger it. Genital herpes can cause such symptoms, but only if you're sexually active. Effective treatment is available. See your doctor ASAP; if recent antibiotic, call the prescriber. ...Read more

Vaginitis: Vaginitis could be caused due to changes in normal bacteria (bacterial vaginosis), yeast infections, or trichomoniasis. Only the later is sexually transmitted. Clinical findings may suggest a particular diagnosis. A pelvic exam and some testing would be needed for further evaluation. Empiric therapy should be avoided because of frequent misdiagnosis and inappropriate therapy. ...Read more

I am experiencing some major discomfort with my vagina. Both sides of my labia are swollen and burning. It also itches some and is giving off a foul o?

Vaginitis: There are too many possibilities to judge the cause, maybe more than one. Strong odor suggests certain kinds of infection (bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, forgotten tampon, others) but "major discomfort", swelling, burning, etc go along better with other problems (yeast, herpes, allergic reaction, others). Don't guess at OTC treatment; if wrong, could make things worse. See a doctor ASAP. ...Read more
