Question question about Monistat 7

Hi, new here. Have any of you had burning when first taking Monistat 7? I'm on the third day and each time i use it, it burns for about an hour and then feels a little better. Is this normal? I'm pacing around because I can't sit for the pain. Then it eases. I do see a improvement, the symptoms are lessening but this pain with the Monistat worries me. I've had a yeast infection years ago and the symptoms were the same, but not this pain and burning with the med. Help. Thanks for reading

Re: question about Monistat 7

hi there, i'm fairly new to the boards myself but they have truly been soooo helpful...i saw you thread title and had to tell you, a couple of years ago i had an allergic reaction to monistat 7 (and i had used it before with no problem) i burned and was in pain for days and days............you might want to call the pharmacy and see what they suggest...my Dr. calls in a pill for me now when i have a yeast infection....may not be the same thing with you but it wouldn't hurt to check...call a pharmacy across town...they'll never know who called!!!!
hang in there...kel

Re: question about Monistat 7

Sensitivity to the yeast cream is pretty common actually. Yeah, you probably want Diflucan rather than Monistat.

Cool Re: question about Monistat 7

thank you sooo much for answering so quick! I'll only be able to get to the store on monday, saturday now, will the yeast infection roar back up? the itching is the big problem. I think I'll go nuts with the itching. Baby creams dont work, tried it. I've got a handicapped son and can't get out to the store till the busses run again on monday. No car Oh well, I'll hopefully get this under control soon. Thanks sooo much. whew

Re: question about Monistat 7

your welcome!! heres the thing though, i'm pretty sure you have to have a prescription for diflucan, did you see a dr. for the yeast or you just knew thats what it was (is) hopefully you have a dr. that will call it in for you , mine does now because i have them so often...

ohhhhhh noooooo no baby cream...that would send me through the roof with burning...anything with fragrance kills me...sometimes though i do take some benedryl for the itch, until things calm down (that you can get over the counter) sometimes i even have to sit in a cool bath of plain water which seems to help....good luck kel

Re: question about Monistat 7

DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON IT AT ALL.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, no chemical of any kind belongs in your vagina ever. No lotions, powders, fragrances, baby lotion, nothing, ever. If the itching is unbearable, take a bath with a little bit of baking soda, or put a damp cool washcloth on it, and call your doctor for a Diflucan prescription right away.

Re: question about Monistat 7

yes, yes, yes i 100% agree....

after my last experience that ended with the allergic reaction to monistat, i actually ended up at a ob/gyn specialist in Indianapolis. (not just the monistat) i have lots of other "female" issues but it seems that last experience just sent me over the edge...

anyway...what i wanted to say is that , he didn't even want me to use any soap to clean the area...ever just water...well, thats just not gonna happen...

so he said if i HAVE to use something to wash with to use JOHNSONS baby shampoo...not baby body wash cause it does have some fragrance that bothers me but the actual johnsons baby shampoo...and that has worked for me..granted i still have tons of issues but at least i can take a shower without making things worse...

hang in there monday morning is less than 24 hrs away and you can call your dr. yippee!! good luck kel
