I am 22. I had irritation swollen and redness earlier, which I remember was the same symptoms as past yeast infections. So I bought monistat 1. I inserted it a few hours ago and now it burns. I would like it out as soon as possible

hello?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, you have an allergic reaction to Monistat.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And afterward, apply OTC 0.5% hydrocortisone cream twice a day.
Clean the area with DIAL soap and use OTC Abzorb powder afterward.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Would it be possible to use a douche to get it out? If so, how?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 month ago

Thanks for the follow-up.

I wouldn't recommend douching as it can aggravate your infection.

Try such measures which we have discussed earlier.

Hope this helps.

How long before I can have sex again?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 month ago

You can resume your sexual activity after a week when you get rid of yeast infection.

If you want to resume your sexual activity soon then use a condom for protection to prevent transmission of yeast infection to your partner.

Hope this helps.
