No. Is is not antibacterial or protazoal. It is an antifungal agent to treat fungal/yeast infections.
No. Clotrimazole is anti-fungal. It generally doesn't do much for bacterial infections.
Vaginal applicator. Generally medications placed vaginally (e.g. Anti-fungals, Premarin (conjugated estrogens) cream...) come with a 'vaginal applicator'. The applicator twists on to the tube of medicine and with a slight squeeze the applicator fills up. The applicator is then placed in the vagina after which the plunger on the applicator is pushed- expelling the medication into the vagina. Voila!
Been using clotrimazole vaginal cream for 2 weeks, symptoms are gone but my clitoris becomes red and sore after sex now plus my labia is puffy. Help?
Allergy? You may be having a reaction to clotrimazole, either allergic or direct toxicity to tissues. Would try stopping this and see what happens. If this continues despite that you should see your GYN doctor. Best wishes for a good outcome.
I have trouble with recurrent bacterial vaginosis. Lately it is worse. I treat with clinidimycin cream vaginally. Is there a better oral treatment?
BV. The antibiotic Flagyl is occasionally used to treat bacterial vaginosis.
Redness and irritation of vulva, gram stain negative for yeast and "not consistent w/ bacterial vaginosis" given rx for lotrimin (clotrimazole) but no relief!
Redness. Redness and irritation of the vulva are not always infectious in origin. This can also be caused by chemicals such as dyes, perfumes, deodorants, etc. In products u use in the area like soaps, detergents used on ur underwear, toilet paper, feminine hygiene sprays, pads, etc. U need to be a detective and look at anything different you are using that you weren't before this and use only hypoallergenic prod.
Can metronidazole vaginal gel (at night for 5 days) treat cervicitis and bacterial vaginosis at the same time??
Probably OK, but... Bacterial vaginosis is often accompanied by cervicitis. It isn't clear whether BV causes cervicitis or vice versa. Probably you were tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea, which definitely cause cervicitis; double check with your doctor. Assuming you don't have them, BV treatment alone may be sufficient. Oral metronidazole is the usual treatment for BV, usually more effective than the vaginal gel.
