"Best OTC for yeast infection?"
 
   I just finished a 7-day generic version of Monistat. It was the cheapest, of course! After reading up on it, I now read that Monistat may have been the worst choice, esp. considering the "burning" side effects (which I did experience.) For future reference, what do any of you use as your drug of choice for yeast infections?

   Gosh, I have used the "real" (non-generic) OTC Monistat 3-day inserts for yeast infections with very good results and no burning.

I had never realized until I came here that you can also get a single Diflucan pill to take orally. And when I had my bout of vaginal infections last year and yeast turned up among the others, that was what the doc prescribed and that also seemed to work just fine. My recollection was that the single Diflucan (and I *think* that was actually a generic was very cheap, just a few dollars, though I really don't know if it would have been a lot pricier without my insurance.

You might want to get the at home Vagisil kit to rule out bv. The only time Monistat burned for me I was using the 1 day ovule. When I went to the doctor they told me that I had bv.

If it is a tough case of yeast then I would request Diflucan since the Monistat didn't work.

While there are over-the-counter (OTC) vaginal antifungal treatments, it is important to talk to your doctor first if you are pregnant, have diabetes, have decreased immunity due to a medical condition or medication, or have recurrent yeast infections. If you have never been diagnosed with a yeast infection by a doctor, consult your healthcare provider before using an OTC yeast infection product to make certain that what you have is indeed a yeast infection and not some other condition requiring different medication.
