  • It most definately will not go away on its own but if it persists after using an OTC treatment then go see a doctor because it could be something else.

  • Unfortunately I've never had one go away on it's own. I always have to use the 7 day Monistat, the cream, no the suppository. I have tried the one or 3 day ones in hopes of getting it over with sooner but they don't work for me.
