For a mild case of diagnosed jock itch, using an over-the-counter antifungal cream could be sufficient. In addition, it is important to continue with washing and thoroughly drying affected areas, avoid sweating, wear well fitted underwear, and do not share personal items. 5) About two weeks. Check if you have fungal infection on your feet (Athlete’s foot) and treat it simultaneously to prevent reoccurrences. Yours in Optimal Health, Dr.
My doctor doesn't know about this as i went to a walk in clinic. I then developed what i thought was thrush so got over the counter meds x 2 and it improved alot but is still very itchy. I went to my doctor and explained that i had an itch and that thrush treatment hadn't worked so he prescribed metronidazole for BV as he didn't know about the sexual contact... Again, it's much better but is still quite itchy and i have been taking the metronidazole for 5 of the 7 days....
Seems like you covered all the medical and over the counter 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 .
Will the Norritate cream help with the enlarged pores and irritation on my forehead, or is there some other treatment--whether over-the-counter or prescription--which I should consider? Is there any chance that this could resolve itself on its own, simply by washing with the right soap and otherwise leaving it alone? Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Over the counter would be best
Figure out which direction you will be bending over in the shower. Preferably, it’s the side away from the shower head. Take everything out of this side of the shower, so that you don’t mistakenly grab it and fall down. If the thought of falling in the shower bothers you, you can also perform this technique standing on a towel next to the running hot shower or other source of running water, and wash the towel after you create a mess.
Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that the metronidazole is a medication that treats bacterial vaginosis. I would advise you to finish this prescription first and then take the terconazole afterwards. Antibiotics CAN make yeast worse. Antibiotics are necessary, though to clear up BV. Taking your antifungal AFTER your antibiotic helps to counter act the side effect of the antibiotic. Good luck!
I am not sure what infection you are being treated with metronidazole, but there are no over-the-counter antibiotic alternatives. It is very important for you to consult your OBGYN and/or primary care providers before taking any medication, including over-the-counter and herbal/vitamin supplements, especially when you are pregnant. I understand metronidazole is a big tablet to swallow and does not taste good when crushed.
The dose for a large lab would be 500 to 750mg twice per day tor 7 days (Do not overdose). If you have not given the correct dose or metronidazole than another course of metronidazole may help. There could be gastrointestinal parasites not covered by the metronidazole, of course, and it would be best to have your dog's stool checked.
or maybe it's due to the fact that i have been taking these antibiotics right after another for so many days upon completing the Augmentin (it will be 17 days total of being on antibiotics). my question is should i buy over the counter vaginal yeast infection medicine while still on the antibiotics?
If C. Difficile is suspected your physician may prescribe an antibiotic called metronidazole. Over the counter probiotics may help replenish the good bacteria in the lower GI tract preventing diarrhea due to antibiotic use.
But yes, you can buy over the counter monistat for a yeast infection.
Is is over the counter stuff ? Most OB's will tell you it's ok to use it.. Your cervix is closed, and your baby is in a proteective sac. Your OB would probably have prescribed something similar anyway. It's ok.
Hello, From your symptoms there is a possibility that this is due to bacterial vaginosis. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole((Flagyl, MetroGel) and clindamycin (Cleocin) which are available under prescription. They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams. Please do not use any vaginal douches.
I suggest you to get all these possibilities evaluated from your dermatologist. Till that time,try an over-the-counter (OTC) cream or ointment containing hydrocortisone but it is to be applied sparingly to the affected area. A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) also may help. If your symptoms are worse at night, please take an antihistamine like Benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect. I hope it helps . Take care and regards.
I've experience bV for years and the best thing that works for me is using a mild soap(hypoallergelic), the water works natural douche and the vh essential product (vh essental.com) preferably the douch concentration & the bv inserts all over-the-counter products.
Today I noticed I have vaginal infection. Can the expired cream cause the infection? What should I do now with the infection ? What anti-biotic can I use to stop the infection? Thank you very much for your time.
Hello, Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. It is caused by a change in the type of bacteria found in the vagina. The exact cause for the change in type of bacteria is still not known, but it is can be due to IUD’s,multiple sex partners or having intercourse with a new partner. In addition to unpleasant "fishy" vaginal odor, thin white or yellowish discharge from vagina may also be present.
I think that I may have a bacterial or yeast infection. I took 2 over the counter 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..
Is there some kind of over the counter stuff i could use or a home remedy? i cant see the doctor until late next month.This really makes me self conscious about having sex now.
Although obviously at work it is difficult, i find that inhaling with herbal oils (put a few drops in hot water, place a towel over your head over the bowl,) baths, massage and cutting wheat out of my diet helps immensely to sooth these symptoms. Hope this was some help to you.
I visited the doctor about 4 days after the symptoms started and she confirmed that it's yeast. I completed the Monistat 3 over the counter treatment, and the infection seemed to be clearing up after the second night. However, one day passed after finishing the product and the symptoms have begun again. Only, this time the discharge has a foul smell to it. Is it common for Monistat or any over the counter treatments to not work and make symptoms worse?
Some medicines or medical conditions may interact with this medicine. INFORM YOUR DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST of all prescription and over-the-counter medicine that you are taking. DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE if you are also taking efavirenz or macrolide antibiotics.
So Tuesday I went to another gyn who guaranteed it's a yeast infection, he gave me Diflucan and prescribed monistat 3 which I had to get over the counter. I took the pill yesterday and began using the monistat treatment. Here I am at work itching so much and dont' know what to do. I cut my nails but still woke up with blood in them, I must have scratched all night. I've tried the monistat anti itch cream which doesn't help much, instead it burns. I wash with baby soap. Any suggestions?
I was at my university's clinic yesterday shadowing and one of the NP's showed me a coupon for a probiotic named Florajen. The University of Miami and Harvard are having some lectures soon and they sent her a packet full of things, including this. It's a free month's supply of it and I'm going to try it out and see if it works.
Over the counter treatments are allowed while prego
If you were my patient, I would advise you that the obvious problem with using the Metrogel and the tampons is that the tampons will soak up the 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.
OTC is over the counter (probably from a pharmacy rather than a supermarket). It means you don't need a prescription to get it. I'm not so sure that it is thrush. Thrush often has a cheesy looking discharge. A fishy smell and discharge suggests bacterial vaginosus (BV) which probably requires antibiotics such as metronidazole (Flagyl). The douching is making it worse and you may have both thrush and BV. You could try a thrush treatment ie Diflucan, Canesten or other antifungals.
It could be a very bad yeast infection which over the counter creams won't help. You would need the doctor to write a prescription for a stronger cream and you should probally take the nystatin pill every day as well for about 10 days. A yeast infection causes itching and open areas and swelling if its bad enough.
(Nothing serious--you would just apply a cream like over-the-counter clotrimazole 1% for a week or two.) On the other hand, if it affects the crease between the nose and the cheek, then most likely your dermatologist was correct to diagnose perioral dermatitis. For this Noritate (metronidazole) is appropriate, but treatment can take several weeks. You might want to ask your skin doctor about adding oral antibiotics like doxycycline for a few weeks. This speeds the process considerably.
