If over-the-counter treatments no longer work, prescription medications, which are much stronger, should be able to treat the infection
You can use various over
medications to treat an infection. Most women use either Vagistat, Monistat, or Femstat. These medications, which are applied around the vagina, usually take a week to work. Sometimes, symptoms last for more than a week even after using treatment. If this happens, you need to consult a doctor.
