The good news is that there are a variety of effective treatments for yeast infections of the vagina.
Selecting a course of treatment is an individual choice. It will take longer for certain infections to clear up than others.
In this post, we’ll discuss the typical duration of a yeast infection, how long it takes to clear up after using OTC remedies, and some natural remedies you can try on your own.
What is The Use of Monistat 1 Medication?
Infections caused by yeast in the vagina can be remedied with this drug. Miconazole relieves the vaginal discomfort, itching, and discharge that often accompany this illness.
This treatment is an antifungal azole. The treatment is effective because it hinders the expansion of the infectious yeast (fungus).
There are two different types of the vaginal product (a vaginal cream or tablet). An additional skin cream for use on the skin outside the vaginal canal is included in certain packages.
If this is your first vaginal infection, talk to your doctor before treating it on your own with this prescription.
Vaginal yeast infections are the only ones that this drug may treat. Possible alternative diagnoses and treatments for conditions like bacterial vaginosis should be considered.
Do not take this drug if you have a vaginal discharge that has an unpleasant odour, fever, chills, or flu-like symptoms. If you notice any of these symptoms, don’t delay in seeing a doctor.
How Long Does Monistat-1 Stay in You?
It is not necessary to reapply Monistat-1 daily in the vaginal area because it is supposed to stay there for seven days.
It is typical for the drug to leak or discharge slightly when you are taking it. Application of Monistat-1 before bedtime is considered optimal.
Applying the cream properly requires reading the included instructions. No douches, tampons, spermicides, or other vaginal products should be used while using this medication.
To prevent the medication from spilling out during your period, consider using unscented sanitary towels.
If you have been taking the medication as directed for three to seven days and notice no improvement, it is time to call your doctor.
Please read the entire label before using any over-the-counter drug for self-treatment. Questions? Talk to your pharmacist. Take this drug exactly as advised by your doctor.
Only use this product in the genital area. Use pre and post use hand washing. If you get any of this ointment in your eyes, rinse them immediately.
Use lots of water to flush your eyes if any of it gets in them. If your eyes continue to hurt, you should see a doctor.
