Yeast: Yeast infections are often accompanied by cottage-cheese looking discharge and intense itching. If you have those symptoms it may still be a yeast infection and you may need further treatment. If you are at all worried about any type of sexually-transmitted infection please be tested as these can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes. Also please be sure your pap smear is up to date. As your symptoms have persisted I advise that you have a complete gynecological evaluation. If you have pain, fever, vomiting, or discharge with color to it then you would need an emergency evaluation. ...Read more

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong.

Might not be yeast: A yeast infection most often causes itching and a cuddly white vaginal discharge. A tear or open cut might be herpes. It would be best if you have a doctor look at it and possibly run some tests. ...Read more

I have a yeast infection so im using a monistat. Once I insert the med in my vagina, it stings. Right now it still stings a bit and itch. What' wrong?

Maybe wrong medicine: Vaginal discharge and irritation/itching can be caused by several different organisms besides yeast. They each have their own medicine which will not help other causes. I would suggest you see your physician so that he/she can test the discharge and prescribe the current medicine. ...Read more

Vaginal itching: This could conceivably be caused by numerous different things, and the best approach would be to let a gynecologist examine you and establish a cause before seeking therapy. Good luck and hope this clears soon. ...Read more

There is tingling around my vagina and my butthole. My buttcrack itches as well. Not sure if it is a yeast infection? Using monistat hasn't helped.

Resistant yeast?: As you suspect, your symptoms are typical for a yeast infection. Some yeasts are resistant to the "azole" drugs like monistat; or maybe it's something else. You'll need to see your doctor to confirm the diagnosis and perhaps get a prescription for an alterntative treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Try stopping med: Perhaps you don't have a Vaginitis at all. Consider stopping the med. You could also have a slight allergy to an ingredient in the Monistat 7.

Dr told me I had a yeast infection. Got a pill for one day & I went to buy Monistat because the itching wasn't subsiding & the inside of my vagina still looked white. I had sex & next day I saw my urethra area is dark brown while the rest is pink?

Obgyn exam: Consider having your Obgyn do an examination. Yeast infections do not typically cause a brown discoloration of the periurethral area. Your doctor can do a pelvic exam. They can confirm the yeast infection has resolved. They can evaluate for other causes of genital itching and determine if any hyper pigmentation abnormalities are present. ...Read more

I'm treating my yeast infection using Monistat 3 last night was my first day and this morning my vagina and vulva are red and swollen is this normal?

Stop Monistat.: You may have an allegy to monistat. If you are sure this is yeast, you can treat this with an oral pill called diflucan (fluconazole). If not, see your dr. There are other causes of vaginal discharge that may be causing the inflammation. ...Read more

I think I have mild yeast infection (a little itching and burning). I took Monistat 1 (tioconazole) last night and now it burns a lot more in my vagina. : (why?

Maybe not yeast...: Perhaps you don't have a yeast infection, which would explain why Monistat 1 (tioconazole) didn't "work" and why you feel worse. If that's the case, go see your doc for evaluation, testing & appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Clear of std's. Thought I had a yeast infection. Used fluconazole 100mg for 7 days every other day and Monistat 7. Still having vagina irritation.?

Candida glabrata?: The usual cause of vaginal yeast infections is Candida albicans. However, C. glabrata causes 10-15% of infections, and many C. glabrata strains are resitant to the "azole" drugs. See your doctor and ask about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, flucytosine, or caspofungin. ...Read more

It: It is possible that you have both herpes and a yeast vaginitis at the same time. Usually yeast vaginitis is not a painful problem, which makes me wonder about the herpes infection you mentioned. You relly need to see your family physician or gynecologist soon to sort this out and get proper treatment. Until then take some Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen) to control some of the pain. ...Read more

Cannot diagnose: This sounds as if you may be having outbreaks of genital herpes, but without being able to see these ulcers would only be guessing. You really need to show these to your family doctor or gynecologist and have them assess and diagnose and suggest management. Good luck. ...Read more
