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.

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
