I have had vaginal itching and a bit of soreness as well as a little bit of burning not much. I thought at first it was nothing much and decided to just treat the itch with vagisil for two days. On the third day i went to apply the creme i noticed that i had white discharge (that was there at first); it was odorless. I was wondering if i may have a yeast infection and if it would be safe to treat it with the over-the-counter cream... monostat or should i go to the doctor?
have you ever had these symptoms?
If the discharge is odorless, it may not be a yeast infection. You can purchase a yeast infection test kit at the drug store to be sure. I wouldn't waste a trip to the doctor for something so minor unless I had ruled out a yeast infection or unless the problem worsened. But that's just my opinion.
you should treat it with the cream. if it isnt a yeast infection your symptoms will come back.
it might be better to go to the doctor to be 100% sure. i treated myself for a yeast infection and my symptoms came back because i had a bacterial infection.
hello i had yeast infection for 4yrs. once i became aware of my symptoms actually being caused because of yeast infection, i began doing my research when i discovered how to cure yeast infection in 3 days and was cured through a natural process with extreme potency to get rid of most of my symptoms by the 2nd day and actually got cured on my 3rd day!
I've had so many yeast infections before that I wouldn't go to a doctor unless I knew it wasn't that. You can try a cider vinegar douche or soak in the same solution, then repeat for a few days. If this seems to help you, then you have your answer and also didn't expose yourself to an unnecessary medication like Monistat. Hope this helps, good luck.
