Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. NOOOOOOOOO. This should not be used in the vaginal area at all dry allergenic. This sounds like an atypical yeast infection. It is best treated with over the counter ticonazole. This will target resistant yeast. Brand name is ***** *****

Do I have to put it in my vagina? I did not see vagistat one on store shelf just monistat and that I had to put up in my vagina and cannot do so as have arthritis in hands...can the vagistat be put in with fingers and/or just put on the outside like a cream?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
is there a cream I could use as applicator won't work for me...
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. K., MD replied 5 months ago
A cream on the outside will not cure the infection at all. It must be applied internally. The vagistat one is an easy applicator and is only a one time dose

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.
