Yeast Infection Question!

I have been itching real bad for a couple days so I finally got monistat 7 lastnight and used it before I went to bed "That's the only time I'm suppose to put it in is before bedtime.." WELL i'm itching like crazy right about now and I was wondering!! If there's ANYTHING I can do to make it stop itching during the day time?

Please help me!

  • I get out of control itchy when I've had any kind of spermicidal lube on me.. maybe that's the case? Have you shaved recently? Just saying, maybe it's not a yeast infection. Try putting a bag of frozen veggies down your underwear.

  • There are itch creams. Sometimes the yeast med comes with an additional tube of cream- monistat cream is one. Look in the yeast med area of the pharmacy or ask the pharmacist. Make sure that you know it is a yeast infection. Good luck!

  • LMFAO @ the frozen veggies! Yes. Make sure you leave them IN THE BAG! There should be a tube of cream that you can spread on the outside during the day.
    Make sure you are wearing cotton underwear during the day and NO undies at night except during AF.
    Drink plenty of water.
    Drink cranberry juice.
    Start taking a probiotic and prebiotic vitamin supplement, especially if you don't eat yogurt.
    Stay away from too much dairy, because that can throw off your pH and make your labia all super itchy.
    TRY NOT TO SCRATCH because it will spread the infection and make you more prone to other infections.
