Reviews for Clotrimazole topical

“It's a very strange medication. Sometimes it's very effective, sometimes the side effects make it feel worse, and sometimes you can't even tell if it's working. It only "cures" what's being caused by a more complex imbalance from antibiotic use. It also depends on how your body works and reacts to different things. I prefer it over that dreadful Monistat because it doesn't burn as much... My best advice to any lady is listen to your body first. This is still a Drug. If you have frequent infections there it could be telling you something you might not understand yet.”

“I'm very sensitive, so my dr prescribed compounded clotrimazole: clotrimazole in petrolatum; no other ingredients. 5-alarm vaginal fire! My labia are swollen and purple. In so much pain, I'm having trouble sleeping. So disappointed.”

“I’ve been having yeast infections ever since high school & ever since I got pregnant it’s gotten worse, off and on. It’s super frustrating!!! And not to mention my husband hates it LOL Ive tried Monistat and never went away. This Clotrimazole cream definitely works. I recommend it to EVERYONE. After the first night I had relief and all my gross discharge came out all in one. And I don’t have to wear a pad throughout the day anymore. My life has changed forever! Super good 10/10 recommend.”

Gyne-Lotrimin (clotrimazole): “I also preferred gyne-lotrimin when treating a yeast infection. It provides relief without the awful burn of Monistat cream. I asked my gynecologist why when I tried the one day treatment I felt like it was burning me. She told me it is because if you use the 1 day cream versus the 3 or 7 day treatment cream, it kills off the yeast faster and when the yeast is killed it releases a toxin that burns like that. So that’s why the shorter the treatment the more you can expect to get that awful burning sensation. Sadly, for some reason, GyneLotrimin and it’s generic seems to have disappeared from stores where I live. Once in the past the pharmacist ordered it for me, or I found you can buy the generic version of it on Amazon.”

“I had reoccurring yeast infections due to pregnancy. I tried Monistat and it burned me so bad, went to the dr and they prescribed me terconazole twice which didn’t help either. So finally I bought this and my symptoms were relieved in one night. I couldn’t be happier!”

“the clotrimazole vaginal has been my holy grail for yeast infections! Currently pregnant so I couldn’t take the usual diflucan pill. Tried Monistat 7 with horrible itchy and burning. Tried Walgreens clotrimazole 7 and felt relief in the first day! Definitely recommend!”

Gyne-Lotrimin (clotrimazole): “I always preferred to use this Gyne-Lotrimin instead of monistat 7. Monistat 7 causes horrible itching but I never got the same those problems from Gyne Lotrimin. It's unfortunate that it's seems harder to find where I live.”

“I have been dealing with severe yeast infections for months, on and off. I never wanted to use another cream after having a terrible reaction to monistat that burned like crazy. However, I went to Walgreens and bought a 7 day trial of clotrimazole and after ONE use I feel amazing! Clotrimazole is the answer to my yeast infections. I will never buy another product. I was so skeptical to ever insert another cream onto me but this worked instantly.”

Clotrimazole-3 (clotrimazole): “I have Emetophobia (fear of vomiting) so I was too afraid to take the Fluconazole my GP prescribed me.. after trying all sorts of stuff, including the misery that is Miconazole, this finally cleared it up, overnight! However, I did have horrible Diarrhea the next morning AND cramps/flank pain... definitely worth it, though.”

“For 20 years I kept getting yeast infections, got miconazole, lived thru 7 nights of hell since the miconazole movement in the vagina woke me up constantly, wait a month, and repeat. The miconazole would clump up during the night and drop in a lump In the morning. I got clotrimazole by mistake in a small pharmacy. I was pretty pissed that it cost me twice the miconazole and had only 1 applicator for the 7 nights. After 1st use I noticed my sleep wasn’t effected and no clumping whatsoever AND the itching was gone with 1 use!! By the 3rd night the infection was totally gone. Cltrimazole stays put and creamy and works 24/7. It is the best cream ever. I am never going back and I google every medication now!”
