I'm using vagisil for a yeast infection but it has only been lasting 1-2 hours. I'm in pain when it wears off. What cream would u recomend?

I'm using vagisil for a yeast infection but it has only been lasting 1-2 hours. I'm in pain when it wears off. What cream would u recomend?

Vagisil is worthless: Vagisil doesn't treat yeast. Lousy drug. Only helps reduce itching, doesn't cure anything. If yeast professionally evaluated and confirmed, ask the doc or clinic about best treatment. If not, see doctor now. Or try OTC treatment; any cream or suppository with active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, clotrimazole, etc), or fluconazole (Diflucan) by mouth. For sure see doc if doesn't work. ...Read more

Abstinent. External vaginal itch from moisture. Used Vagisil Max cream. When I began using it daily, the condition exacerbated & to upper inner thigh.

Possible yeast: External vaginal itching due to moisture may be from a yeast (candida or tinea) infection. Vagisil is just a topical anesthetic that can mask symptoms but does not treat the problem. Some women develop a local reaction to the benzocaine. See your clinician for an exam and appropriate treatment. Take Care! ...Read more

14 weeks postpartum w/ vaginal/vulvar burning during sex/foreplay. Sometimes an itchy feeling too. Will vagisil cream help? What could be causing this

Several things: I would want to rule out an infection with the symptoms you're describing (e.g. Bacterial Vaginosis, UTI, etc...). Vagisil is worth a shot. Sometimes also, the postpartum state (usually about 6 weeks) is a relatively hypo-estrogenic time period when the GU (genitourinary) tissue is a little more sensitive and prone to injury. ...Read more

May not be yeast: If you are not responding to yeast medication then this is a sign it may not be a yeast infection.
