Does vagisil work for yeast infections, thrush, irritation, itchiness, redness, burning on the vagina?

Vagisil. Vagisil is an otc (over the counter) preparation only, and has no antifungal medication in it, so it won't "treat" a yeast infection. It is a mild topical anesthetic (benzocaine) and merely treats the symptoms. You will need a prescription from your doctor to treat the yeast, if present.

One side of vaginal wall is itchy, red, and slightly swollen. Rest of vagina is fine. Possible yeast infection or irritation from sex, etc? No std's

Doubt yeast. Herpes? Yeast could do this, but unlikely. Irritation from sex also might be possible. However, I would be most concerned about genital herpes. See a doctor ASAP, the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis (before the irritation and swelling start to improve); or immediately (within 1-2 days) if the problem recurs. Good luck! Read more...

I'm pretty sure I've had a yeast infection for about a month, I've been using vagisil but it isn't helping and I can't see a doctor because I'm away from home. My vagina is itchy has discharge and occasionally burns. Help!

Time to think outsid. If topical antifungal treatments haven't worked in 1 month, then consider the possibility that the "yeast infection" isn't from yeast. Assuming that you are not pregnant (Vagisil is not to be used if you are) then recurrent yeast infection symptoms could point to STDs, bacterial infection (not treated by antiFUNGALS), or resistant yeast (yes, possible). Can you discuss with Gyn on HealthTap Prime? Read more...

I have had an itchy, burning feeling around the vagina opening for about a week now. I got off an antibiotic like a month ago is it a yeast infection?

Yeast seems likely. These symptoms are typical for vaginal yeast infection, which can be triggered by antibiotics. So yeast seems a good bet. Best to see a doctor, but if you want to try an over-the-counter treatment, it would be safe as long as you see a doctor promptly if no improvement. Look for a vaginal cream with active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, clotrimazole, etc). Read more...
