In brief: See your doctor

If this is the first time ever, you should not self-treat with otc products without first being diagnosed by a physician in order to rule-out other possible causes of symptoms.
Patients( previously diagnosed by a physician) with recurrent, uncomplicated vaginal yeast infections can safely self-treat with otc products. Please see your physician for proper care. Take care.
