... and didn't think about the itching was occuring so I let it go on for a couple days and now taking monistat 7. I just used it about 30 minutes ago, the whole deal, the wipe, the cream, and the anti itch but the itch hasn't gone away yet. I have to sleep for work tonight but can't fall asleep because of this itching. What do I do?
Vaginal Yeast Infection - I'm on my second day of Monistat 7, I was prescribed antibiotics for a UTI

I would call ur dr office and they should have a 24 hr helpline and a nurse will call u back. It is the antibiotic but dont stop taking it untill u talk to them! Also the over the counter yeast infection treatment could of made it worse. Its okay it happens alot. It happened to me. I was on a antibiotic called ciprofloxacin - not sure if i spelled it right but check with your on-call nurse and since u tried everything u could use baby wipes, preferably unscented but regualr wipes are okay . I did and it gave me some relief. Everytime u use the rest room use them. Or for itching . And clothing tight clothes make it worse Dont put any other treatments just call ur dr. And use the baby wipes
Hey seen you didn't have any comments yet and know your desperately seeking advice. There's a few things that you could do that work well from my experience. Number one is coconut oil!! it helped me get rid of yeast infection and bacterial infections that I kept getting back to back. You can even Cube them not quite half full and insert them at night time & or apply as often as needed. You could Also soak a tampon and have it inserted at night. Also you can soak in a baking soda bath(just enough water to soak your va-j-Jay)cool-Luke warm water (yeast feeds off heat) I typically will add about 6 drops of tea tree oil to it also. baking soda helps with cleansing and the itch. Tea tree oil has anti micro antifungal antibacterial properties in it which will help with all of the discomforts from yeast infections. And internally you can also do a few things like cut the things yeast feeds off of. Sugar,carbs, alcohol and heat. Don't use any corn starch like baby powder, but instead if you have to to keep the area dry use the talc baby powder. I wouldn't use a lot or often because of the cancer risk. Don't douche EVER!! It cleans out all the good bacteria and you don't want that because you're infection could go the other way and turn into a bacterial infection. Trust me I know. and also make sure you finish your medication until it's gone, it'll help keep the yeast from becoming resistant to the antibiotics. Also unless you know for a fact that you have a yeast infection do not use any over-the-counter products unless instructed from your doctor. you could give yourself so many more problems taking an antibiotic or medication that you don't need. you don't want your body to become antibiotic-resistant, like mine is becoming. I didn't notice when you ask your question but I hope I got to you in time for you to get some relief.also if you try the coconut oil make sure it's organic extra virgin,unrefined,cold pressed, raw. Thoes are the things you should see on your oil and the organic seal. Good luck
