Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
If you think there is still any Monistat still present, try to gently wash it off the part you can reach. It's probably better not to try douching what is inside.
Sitting in water with epsom salts will be soothing and healing. You can do that 2-3 times a day.
When you get out, put some 1% hydrocortisone cream on the burning area on the outside. Probably better to not put it inside the vagina.
You should get some relief with the first epsom salt bath. You should have pretty good relief within 1 day.
