  • I think it does at first because it has some kind of numbing agent in it to help with the itch on the outside... but if anything swells up... stop using it. I used Monistat once and it burnt like hades and my bits swelled up.. needless to say I won't buy that again. :P I bought the cheap stuff last time I needed it

  • Im half hour in and still burning. I hoped in the shower after I inserted it and just held the shower head down there for some relief!!!!! I didnt care if the meds came out..I was lit up down there! I'm still burning tho but its bearable. Will it ever stop? omg

  • Girl I feel your pain. I am diabetic and a month rarely goes by that I dont suffer through a yeast infection. I have learned a few tips to help with the treatment. First off YES, as a doc once told me when you start treatment, it will get worse before it gets better. It will feel better in a few days, you should have gotten the one or three day treatment though.
    Anyway, if it ever happens again treat it AS SOON as you think you are getting a yeast infection that will help with the burning you feel when you treat it. If you still feel lots of burning, freeze a couple of wet washcloths before you do your treatment, do your insert and then shove one of those frozen washclothes onto (not into) your hoo hoo the cold helps minimize the pain and burn, keep doing that it really helps...good luck

  • It can. That's actually why I stopped using it. It may sound gross, but I switched to applying plain greek yogurt and it worked faster than the monistat did (and without the burning).

  • I can't use that stuff. Within 5 minutes I am rushing to the bathroom to take all measures to get it out of me. I get the diflucan pill when needed.
