If you are not sure, I would head to the doctor. Bacterial vaginosis can have similar symptoms and requires a different medication to clear it up. Just to be on the safe side and not waste time or money, I'd have a doctor confirm it to make sure.

There are many over the counter brands.
Try one with "Clotrimazole" in it. That is what my Doc recommends.
OR, simply ask the Pharmacist at the store.

L.C. answers from Los Angeles on August 24, 2010
Monostat is the one my gyn recommended. The cream is easier to use than the suppositories. Use it at night before bedtime. I found the 7 day is most effective because it gives you a whole week to get better. The prescription pills work well too and may be less expensive than over the counter but your doctor might want you to come for a visit before giving you a prescription.
Hope this helps.
A.S. answers from Detroit on August 23, 2010
I've never reacted well to any of the OTC creams.
I call my OB's office and have them call in a Diflucan pill. Without insurance it's still only like $5-10.
F.W. answers from Flagstaff on August 23, 2010
Generic form of Monostat. They have the same active agreement. I will tell you that I never had success with them unless I did the 7-day probgram. Do yourself a favor from now-eat yogurt that has acidophillis bacillus in it like Dannon. Activia doesn't have the bacteria necessary. Remeber to look at the ingrediants. Another alternative to maintenance is go to your local natural food store and get the capsules. They will be refrigerated and need to keep that day. I hope this helps.
