... a bacterial infection. After this cycle, I began developing symptoms of a yeast infection. I planned to go stay with my boyfriend this weekend, so I decided to purchase the Monistat 1. I am aware that it may take up to a week for my symptoms to go away. My question is, is there anything I can do, in the mean time, to use for the itching that is present inside my vagina. It seems to be located deeper in places that I cannot reach with simple clean hands and designated cream. Please help! It's extremely uncomfortable
