This will also act as a "stress-breaker" and in some people wearing it makes them stop grinding. ...Read more

Or maybe your allergy isn't to miconazole per se, but other ingredients in the cream; you could try other azoles (clotrimazole, terconazole, etc), or oral fluconazole (Diflucan). ...Read more
