I had yeast infection after got treatment (7day course) still only itching. Due to use femmine wash? I never use femmine wash before had infection.

Possibly: The vagina always contains bacteria & other microbes but, if they're in a healthy balance, there's no need for treatment. Feminine washes (douching) can upset that balance & trigger infection. Since there's normally no need to use them & they may have caused a problem for you, I recommend you stop using them. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi I have a serious yeast infection and I used monistAt 1 (tioconazole) day cure and itch lastnight but it still burns and itches really bad what should I do?

It takes a few days: Monistat usually is effective against vaginal yeast infection, but it takes a few days. Are you certain of the diagnosis? For such serious symptoms, you should not be treating yourself without professional advice. Additional treatment may be helpful (e.g. steroid cream); and also to make sure it's not something else. For example, initial genital herpes can mimic severe yeast symptoms. ...Read more

Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream is one. Your gynecologist is best qualified to advise you however. ...Read more

How do I know my yeast infection is clearing? I was given fluconazole by my doctor and told me to put vagisil I see mucus now but it still itches

What kind of treatment I can buy for yeast infection that make it go away. My discharge has clumps in it and my vagina itches me a lot is it yeast infection r something else. Please help me I want to have sex again. But afraid to?

Azole drug: Look for an over-the-counter product with active ingredient ending in "azole", e.g. clotrimazole, miconazole, terconazole, and others. All work equally well; you can choose the cheapest. If uncertain, ask a pharmacist. Clumpy discharge with itching often is due to yeast, but not always. If it doesn't clear up in a few days, you'll need to see a doctor or clinic for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Yeast infection: Yeast infection normally would not cause bumps on the vagina. It can be disturbing in that it causes itchy discharge.

Can you get an infection from your vibrator? I clean it after every use but my vagina is on fire and itches so bad what could it be? Yeast infection?

Vibrator hygiene: Vibrators should be cleansed after every use with mild soap and water, and if it is plastic and not latex a rubbing alcohol "wipe off". Some vibrators will accept a condom covering prior to use which minimizes pH changes. If the vibrator still has soap or oil based lubricants on it pH changes yielding yeast infections are common. Have your GYN MD examine the vaginal discharge for an infection. ...Read more
