What are the side effects for terconazole vagina suppositories? And is it suppose to stop itching and burning? And when does the symptoms go away?
Cannot take oral difulcan due to side effects. Prescription terazol (terconazole) 7 cream is irritating me badly. What else is there I can take for yeast infection?
Monastat: Options include 1, 3 or 7 day treatments. Usually available otc at most pharmacies and even grocery stores.See 1 more doctor answer
Junk: Junk food and processed desserts are not healthy for you anytime but especially when you are treating a yeast infection.
Usually 3days: For possible yeast infection, use antifungal cream usually 3 days but some women need 7-10d. If symptoms not resolving, consult with us or your MD.
Possibly: Yeast infections are not typically contagious. However if you have a yeast infection and your vagina is irritated and raw other stds such as hiv or hepatitis could be spread more easily. Terconazole also can make condoms weaker and could weaken female birth control. I would wait 48 to 72 hours after stopping the medication to have sex. Good luckSee 1 more doctor answer
My 7 year old has anal itch. Is it ok to use terconazole vaginal 0.4% cream to re leave that itch?
Anal itch: If your child has an anal itch you should have him checked for pinworms first.
I use terconazole cream 7days for 4days allready and my vagina still feel the same is that normal?
Talk to your doctor: First, make sure you have a yeast infection because terconazole will only work on yeast and not on bacteria. If it is yeast and the terconazole isn't working then you might need a different medication, probably an oral one. It is important to use hypoallergenic products, for soap, detergent, etc to avoid irritating the area. Low carb/low sugar diet is critical for curing yeast infections.
I'm using terconazole cream 0.8% does that work for bacteria vaginitis and what foods not eat when using this cream?
No it doesn't: That medication is for yeast and will not help bacterial vaginosis at all. Antibiotics are needed.
I'm taking terconazole vaginal cream 0.4% & upon inserting an applicatorful it immediately started to ooz out, will it still be effective?
Probably: I'm assuming this is to treat a yeast infection? It is typical for some of the cream to leak out. It's always best for you to insert the medication at night, so that you're lying in bed for the next few hours while it works, and there's minimal leakage. If you finish the course of medicine, however, and are still having symptoms, talk to your doctor. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer

Yeast Rx in pregnanc: Terconazole is rated as class c in pregnancy. There are animal studies that show some adverse effects in pregnancy, but their are no human studies or reports clearly linking terconazole with fetal injury. The risk is likely very low but is unknown. The mayo clinic reports that you can use either monistat (miconazole) or Clotrimazole cream safely at any time during pregnancy.
I am on a three day regimen of terconazole, I had a bowl movement and a lot of cream leaked out, does that mean it will be less effective now?
No: It is common to see the cream come out of your vagina. It still coats the vaginal walls as it leaks out. I suggest you insert the cream at bedtime so you will not get up as often. But it will still leak out. That is expected
