  • Did you get one that has the little plunger thing to put the medicine inside? I have found that those work better. I get one abput once a year. But they're common before or/and after periods.

  • if you let it get so bad that you had to go to the ER, then yes it's normal for the anti-itch cream to burn. It's because you are so raw, but if you don't put it on then it's just going to get worse. A yeast infection doesn't just go away without being treated. So the longer you go untreated, the worse it will get. The burn should go away after the first few times you apply it.

  • Put plain, organic yogurt on a pad; it will soothe the discomfort and get some good germs in your vagina.
