Metronidazole gel over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Metronidazole gel over the counter


Avatar_n_tn My Doctors just told me to take Monistat 3 or 5 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> instead of Diflucan. Just because it works faster. I didn't have any issues from it as far as I know. I've had a very difficult pregnancy too (like bleeding throughout, early contractions, etc.) & they still said it was safe for me. I hope this helps.
1308690_tn?1273700011 Seems like you covered all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> medical and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> prescriptions. I had a nasty case of BV and the Dr gave me Macrobid and it cleared it up. Thats by prescrirtion only . As for the yeast infection they have a pill called Flagyl its extermely potent and will kill the yeast infection. the monostat in my opinion don't help too much. Also my Dr told me its not recommended to have sex during BV and yeast infection .
Avatar_m_tn You are also going to be bending <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> forward in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> shower. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> shower is not a good place to find out that bending <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> makes you dizzy. Practice it first before you get in a shower, no matter how young and fit and healthy you assume that you are. Stand in front of a bed or couch or a carpeted floor. Slowly bend forward as far as you can comfortably bend, and look between your legs at the crotch. Slowly stand up erect.
Avatar_m_tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> obvious problem with using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> Metrogel and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> tampons is that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> tampons will soak up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> gel. Since you are at the tail end of your therapy anyway, you could probably get away with using the gel at night before bed and the gel during the day although it is not ideal, it is probably good enough.
Avatar_m_tn I think that I may have a bacterial or yeast infection. I took 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> vaginial screening kits and i also i feel a bit discomfort and my discharge is maybe a pale white..sort of watery and thick..It stated I had a bacterial infection. I believe I had it for some time now but never went to the doctor..but im planning on going soon as possible. I Just want to know what can I do to help with the discomfort or even to clear up in the meantime? I dont really smell anything..
Avatar_n_tn On this particular visit I did not have any cuts. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> infection returned 1 week ago and I used an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> herbal yeast infection ****** & gel cream that had live cultures. Within 2 days I was worse, the cuts returned but this time they were larger. So I figured, I needed a stronger med. I purchased and over the counter 3 day Suppository. This made me more uncomfortable and now the cuts were irritated even more.
Avatar_m_tn You can buy something for it at your local pharmacy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> eg. Canesten. Have you been eating lots of sugars and starch? Do you get yellow/greenish/brownish discharge and has a foul odor of a fishy smell.
Avatar_n_tn I researched all this because i was surprised to see single dosage packets of vaginal inserts on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> beauty supply store near my house in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> bronx. i have been plagued with bacterial vaginitis and/or yeast infections for five plus years. i find american doctors don't seem to care much about these problems even though women find them extremely depressing and alienating..
Avatar_n_tn BV is bacterial vaginosis (SP) Yeast infection. without going to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> dr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> only thing you can do is take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> creams. there is a pill you can get from your dr called diflucan. you can take it along with the cream and it should clear it up. Have you had a pap lately if not you might want to think about doing so. Did a dr diagnose you with BV, because if it is this hard to get rid of your infection and you are having foreplay it may not be BV but an std.
Avatar_n_tn try to drink mor e water only take showers only use antibacterial soap such as dial, eat yogurt , and stop having sex until you get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pap test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> doc will give you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>(flagyl) or metro-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> to treat the infection. but all of the above metnioned things can keep the infection from coming back. and never ****** or use feminine hyg. products i used to get recurrent bv. infection and now i dont and i am still witrh the same guy that ui was with when i used to get the infections.
Avatar_m_tn He has me wash with the Head and Shoulders and then use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> hydrocortisone on it. It never fully goes away and I'm alwys red faced. But the ritual he has me do does keep it somewhat under control. Even if you think the rash is gone you have to keep doing the ritual or it will come r ight back. Mouse P.S. Make sure you talk to your do and he says it's o.k. to do this ritual. I do know it has helped quite a few people.
Avatar_m_tn Often one gets perioral dermatitis as a result of candida overgrowth and anti-biotics, steroid creams only make it worse or continue to perpetuate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> problem. You can try an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> anitfungal cream like Lotrimin to see if it helps. I had terrible perioral dermatitis and the only thing that got rid of it was Lotrimin. I continue to use it whenever I have a flare up. Good luck!
Avatar_f_tn Drainage of the boil is done only when it becomes soft and forms a head. Take some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> pain reliever and consult a doctor for examination and antibiotics prescription. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar_m_tn I had this same problem for about 10 years!! And no doctor could help me. I tried everything. I finally went to a doctor that said, "yes, I know exactly what that is." He said it was eczema but said not to use over-the-counter cortisone creams because they are not made to apply to the face and could make it worse. So he prescribed a special cortisone cream that is ok to apply to the face: Elidel - - this drug works wonders!!!!
Avatar_f_tn Your infection seems to have grown immune to tge medications you can get over the counter. It's time for holistic! Dr.
Avatar_n_tn Quite honestly, I think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> whole yogurt thing doesn't work, and I've heard Dr. HHH <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> STD forum say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same thing. However, I did want you to know the name of the supplement. You buy it at the pharmacy, OTC, but you do have to ask for it, b/c it stays in the fridge behind the counter.
Avatar_n_tn i have treted my self using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metronidazole</span>, canesten viginal tablet and cream. i also notice for some month that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> ovulation mucus during ovulation is dirty brown.and my menstration flow is dirty brown.i menstrurate for 3days and the forth and fifth day i see dirth brown discharge.iam not feeling any pain at all in my abdomen and i don't have any itching in my viginal. please i also want to know why my husband no longer enjoying sex with me.
Avatar_n_tn When I was young and pregnant often (have 5 kids) I was a yeast infection magnet. My midwife told me to buy boric acid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pharmacy, put it in empty gel caps from the health food store and insert in vagina as needed. It worked like a charm and I never got them any more even in later pregnancies. This is kind of a home remedy and is probably not endorsed by all healthcare providers.
Avatar_n_tn If it's bacterial, he/she will prescribe an antibiotic. In Canada, you can by Diflucan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>. In not to sure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> protocol in the States. 6). Wear condoms or go abstinent between you and your partner until it's cleared up. If you are sexual and don't wear protection, encourage your man to wash himself off afterward or he'll start to itch the next day. Best wishes to you ladies, it really ***** being a woman sometimes!
Avatar_n_tn yes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> nizoral is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> stuff, it might not be sold in your country but there will be something the same, with a 2% or so 'ketoconazole', dont confuse it with 'cortisone' witch is for dermatitis conditions such as eczema. ketoconazole is an anti-fungal & used to fight dandruff and mild cases of athletes foot/jock itch type thing.
Avatar_f_tn chest. Topical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> (OTC) antifungal creams helped a little, but I found treating from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> inside out by killing the fungus and boosting my immune system was the best approach. I highly recommend  Syntol by Andrew Arthur Medical to everyone fighting a fungal infection as it's an oral supplement containing many yeast digesting enzymes in addition to multiple strains of probiotic spores (spore germination = better recolonization of good bacteria).
Avatar_n_tn I worry about people fearing something terrible and not going to dr. or trying everything under-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> sun <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> and irritating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> problem...PLEASE GO TO the DOCTOR if it is at all persistent or re-occuring.... it is worth the peace of mind! AND IF I had read that message (to go to dr.) earlier, instead of all of these things different people didn't have success with I could've possibly been free of this years ago.
Avatar_n_tn in the uk REPLENS can be prescribed by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> doctor which helps if you get free prescriptions or it can be bought <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>... Vaginal Atrophy: vaginal dryness, soreness and painful sex Without the production of oestrogen by the ovaries, the skin and support tissues of the vulva ("lips") and vagina become thin and less elastic. This is an inevitable consequence of the menopause and the majority of women will experience some form of symptoms.
Avatar_n_tn Recenlty, my husband and I have began experiencing similar problems. Every time we have sex, he has a little cut under the edge of the tip of his penis. It is very painful for him and it has put a damper on our sex life. I orginally thought the cuplrit was my nuva ring, but even after discontinuing use and going back to condoms, we still have problems. We use astroglide lubricant in combination with less rigourous sex, and that seems to help.
Avatar_n_tn Carefully adhere to instructions when using topical steroids because overuse of these medications, even low-strength <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> topical steroids, may cause a troublesome skin condition. You can also try metronidazole gel/lotion to help a possible Roseacea condition. ref:http://www.myonlinewellness.
Avatar_n_tn I am very itchy to the point i get blood from itching with the toilet paper in the bathroom. there is no smell but it is worrysom all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same. My Dr has sugested using an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> yeast infecton kit - he has done no testing but said some times the yeaST CAN GROW TO A POINT THAT IT BEGINS A DIFERANT BACTERIAL INFECTION WICH CAN TURN the DISCHARGE GREEN. iF YOU HAVENT TRIED ANYTHING FOR A YEAST INFECTION mAYBE TRY THAT.
Avatar_n_tn Instead, my problem has always been the chronic symptoms of vaginal infections that never respond to medications or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> remedies. Balance Activ is not currently sold in the United States but some retailers offer it online. Visit for more information and let Balance Activ know that you're interested in having the product in the US. It works and has no side effects! My heart goes out to all of you!
Avatar_n_tn I am 26, have never been pregnant, and have had a hard time finding a pill that did not make <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> issue worse. I have now been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> same pill for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> 7 years, and in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> last year, it has been getting worse. I ususaly take my pill for longer time, getting my period every 2-3 months instead as the itching is SO unbareable!! But the last year my body seems to just start itching and menstrating regardless if I keep taking the pill.... I started using the vagisil wipes - a god send!
Avatar_n_tn It should only be used by those with serious acne, and with a doctors prescription - not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> or sold by beauticians.. its just too powerful, and for someone like me, its heartbreaking to think I've never had an allergy and now my skin is permanently reactive and flares up. Please everyone, read the ingredients - see Benzol Peroxide and say FAR AWAY!!!
Avatar_n_tn He gave me some Aquaphor and Balneol (both over-the-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>) and still no relief. In fact <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> Aquaphor caused a yeast infection--it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> consistency of Vaseline, which is not the best thing to apply in the vaginal area. I'm so frustrated and anxious and miserable. I don't imagine that even if I start dating again I'll be able to have sex at all.
