Customer Question
I just used the first...
I just used the first of three day dosage of monistat III for a yeast infection, due to my new vigorous work-out schedule. I just woke up from being asleep due to extreme interior vaginal itching a few hours after insertion. What do can I do for relief? It's so bad i can't sleep. How can I go to work like this? I had minor external itching and discomfort before I started the treatment, but nothing like this!

It could be a side effect of monistat. Wash out monistat. Put OTC hydrocortisone cream w/o or w/ antihistamine.
Your symptoms before monistat may not be due to yeast infection. You should see a gynecologist to have the exam and get appropriate medication if your symptoms continue.

Thank you for your quick response. Is that a common side effect? And, not to sound dumb but are you suggesting that I insert OTC hydrocortisone? I thought that was only for topical use? How would I do that?
OB GYN Doctor: khagihara, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago
I thought you used monistat cream for the external part. It is not so common, but one of the major side effects. Just wash out the monistat.
Hope you feel better.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
