Oh lord... i have one!!What do i do?
UGH! they suck! were you diagnosed or do you just assume you have one? if this is your first time, you really should see a doc to be positive it is a YI. but, to answer your question, go to a drugstore and get medicine - it's sold over the counter. get the one day or 3 day suppository, not the 7 day cream. (the cream is messy and takes too long, although it does help with vulvar itching.)eat yogurt too, it speeds the healing.here's a snip from the web: Vaginal yeast infections can be treated with antifungal medicines that are inserted directly into the vagina as tablets, creams, ointments or suppositories. These medications include butoconazole (Femstat), clotrimazole (Clotrimaderm, Canesten), miconazole (Monistat, Monazole, Micozole), nystatin (several brand names), tioconazole (GyneCure) and terconazole (Terazole). A single dose of oral fluconazole (Diflucan Oral) also may be used, although this treatment is not recommended during pregnancy. Treatment of sex partners is not usually necessary, since most vaginal yeast infections are not transmitted sexually. However, if a male sex partner shows symptoms of Candida balanitis (redness, irritation and/or itching at the tip of the penis), he may need to be treated with an antifungal cream or ointment.
