Will this medication help vaginal itching. Last time I took it with Fluconozole and it cured my problem, but I am on day 3 of taking Metronidozole and I am still very itchy and uncomfortable. My doc prescribed it to me based on my symptoms alone as I do not have insurance. Maybe I need the Fluconozole instead?
There are reasons for vaginal itching other than a yeast infection but give the medication at least a week (& days) before you decide it isnt working. Even the one dose and 3 day doses can still be working up to seven days. If you dont see any improvement, you may need an exam because it is probably not yeast (or fungus).
