Help, my yeast infection medicine doesn't work!

I got a yeast infection last week and I used Vagistat 3 day treatment. But it's been 5 days already and the itching hasn't gone away completely. It still itches a little. I'm pretty sure it's an yeast infection because I got it 2 times before. The first time I got diagnosed by a gyn. The second time I used Monistat and it cured it. But this time the Vagistat I bought doesn't work. Can I use another brand after I used the Vagistat already? Will that give me overdose?

I would think it would be alright for you to go ahead and try something else.

Yep, you can try another brand. Might I suggest that you go see a doctor though? They can prescribe you something stronger that may be more effective for you than the over the counter medicines. Also, try applying it inside as well as on the outside to ensure that the entire infection is cleared up.

Try the 7 day cream. Oftentimes the 3 or 1 day creams don't let the medicine attend to the problem for a long enough time. This has happened to me a couple times.

Well, the Monistat 3 day cream did work for me before. So I don't know if the yeast infection is more serious this time, or that Vagistat just doesn't work. But I think I'll get Monistat again. It's expensive though. =(

If it doesn't clear up, you may want to call your doc and have him prescribe Difflucan. Spendy, but one pill works. No messy creams.
