Other Comments

Tioconazole topical is an over-the-counter preparation for self-medication of recurrent vaginal candidiasis in otherwise healthy nonpregnant females previously diagnosed by a clinician.

Tioconazole topical is a 1-dose treatment. Most women do not experience complete relief of their symptoms in just 1 day; however, most experience some relief within 1 day and complete relief within 7 days.
