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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

How to clean vagina after using terconazole cream As doctor requested never had any symptoms?

How to clean vagina after using terconazole cream As doctor requested never had any symptoms?

No need, no worry: You do not need to clean out your vagina. Indeed, vaginal cleaning (douching) is potentially harmful and almost never necessary. The vagina is self cleaning. You can resume sex whenever you feel like it. (However, it's a bit puzzling that your doctor prescribed terconazole without symptoms. Apparently she thought you had a yeast infection, however.) ...Read more

I've been using terconazole 4% cream for 2 days. It's not working. Can I switch to Monistat 3 mid treatment?

Sure: But give the terconazole a little longer. U may still have some sx's for a day or 2 even after infection done. If not better in a few days and did not see a doc there is a chance it's not a yeast infection. It likely is though and u can certainly switch to monistat. Good luck. ...Read more

Would it be okay to put terconazole vaginal cream on a baby for diaper rash?

Would it be okay to put terconazole vaginal cream on a baby for diaper rash?

No data to advise...: Currently, there is no data on pediatric use; therefore, this cream can not be specifically recommended for infants. Hypersensitivity reactions can occur and toxic epidermal necrolysis has been reported with the use of this medication. The obvious concern is how much of the drug is absorbed through the thinner skin of babies, and would the adverse effects be worse due to baby's smaller body size. ...Read more

Oh god! I am 22, I have a yeast infection. Monday I began taking terconazole cream, which I've been having nightmares monday-friday since takingthis?

Chill out: Your "oh god! " suggests you are unduly stressed by this. Yeast infections are annoying but very common and not a serious problem. Nightmares have not been reported to be a side effect of terconazole cream. It is likely your nightmares are due to your stress rather than the cream. But there are natural alternatives: see http://earthclinic. Com/cures/yeast_infection. Html. ...Read more
