  • I am pretty sure it still takes a week to clear up even though you only apply it once. Try some Vagisil or some other topical cream for relief until the itching goes away.

  • You need the monistat 7. Also, eat yogurt (the real kind, with live cultures and without gelatin).

  • I've heard cranberry juice helps to, along with the yogurt already suggested. Also, monistat makes anti-itch wipes, so if you already did the treatment but your very uncomfortable because its still itching they have medicated wipes. It should be right next to the monistat treatment and they can be used anytime, and really do work!

  • Is it just itching and discharge? Is it painful when you pee or do you feel any bumps on the skin? Many times women misdiagnose themselves when they in fcat have something else, such as genital herpes. Anyone can have herpes for years without knowing until they get an outbreak which has symptoms very similiar to yeast infections. And some people never have outbreaks at all, 1 in 4 people have herpes and most don't even know it. For example, cold sores on the mouth are herpes (hsv-1 in most cases) and it can be transferred to other parts of their bodies or someone else's!
