  • It will feel like crap for a few days but if it doesn't start feeling better by day 3 you should see your doctor because it may not be a yeast infection. You can have a shower. If that is a cream one ( I don't remember) you should use more when you are done because if it is not there it wont be doing anything to help you.

  • *EDIT* I cant use it during the daytime, it says to only use it before bed because of leakage (eww).. and I see what they mean..I'm a mess today. Also, I guess what I meant it normal for the burning/itching sensation caused by the cream to be FAR worse than the burning/itching caused by the yeast infection?

  • You can use it during the day you just need to wear a pantyliner
