If you need to take an oral antibiotic, ask your doctor about using a preventative yeast cream. ...Read more

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
