HELP!!!
A couple of questions really. The first is in the following link, read it and make an appointment to see your doctor for a couple of reasons: https://www.drugs.com/health-guide/vaginal-yeast-infection.html
And here is the dosing information:
"Miconazole topical dosing information
Usual Adult Dose for Vaginal Candidiasis:
1 day therapy: Insert 1200 mg suppository intravaginally at bedtime for 1 day.
3 day therapy: Insert 200 mg suppository intravaginally at bedtime for 3 days.
7 day therapy: Insert 100 mg suppository intravaginally at bedtime for 7 days.
2% cream: Insert one applicatorful intravaginally at bedtime for 3 to 7 days.
4% cream: Insert one applicatorful intravaginally at bedtime for 3 days.
Topically: Apply to external vulvar area twice a day for up to 7 days, as needed."
It would seem that if you are sensitive to Miconazole, a one day dose may not be the best course of action. The one day treatment plan is twice the amount/dose as a whole three or seven day treatment plan. The extreme itchiness (pruritus) has to be dealt with. You will have to see your lady doctor (men generally lack empathy) for guidance here. Sometimes being in a hurry or taking a shortcut just doesn't pay.
I wish you the very best, take care.
