I’m a guy and I believe I have a yeast infection. Don’t have insurance. Do you recommend a pill or cream

Doctor's Assistant: What over-the-counter and prescription medications are you currently taking?

I’ve used AZO for the UTI, but that wasn’t it

Hi! There are many over-the-counter treatments for a yeast infection. Have you looked at any products from your local pharmacy yet? I don't want to recommend something you already know about:)

Please reccomend a pill

AZO yeast infection ? Or candid ?
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

AZO yeast infection is good to relieve symptoms, but will not cure the infection. Are you just looking for symptom relief?

I need something to clear the infection
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

Ok, thanks for clarifying. You will need to use a kit with creams and or suppositories. I can recommend some of those if you wish.

reccomend then. Waiting for names so I can go to a pharmacy
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

Look for Monistat 1. It contains an antiyeast ovule and itch relief cream. It has a very high rate of efficacy and is convenient to use as you only have to insert one ovule.

Does this help? Please do reply with any further questions or concerns:)

That’s all I have to take?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I’m a guy not a female
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

Oh! My apologies...an ovule will not work for you as this is for vaginal use. You will need a cream. Look for Lotrimin Antifungal cream. Apply per package instructions.

That will stop the infection ? It burns when I pee. Seems a bit swollen.
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

Yes, this cream cures yeast infections on the skin.

How fast will I see results
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago
You should get some relief within 24 hours and be fully recovered within a week. If your symptoms last longer, please consider seeing a doctor.

Which Lotrimin antifungual cream is it? There’s diff ones... for like ringworms etc
Pharmacist: Dr. Bridget, Pharmacist replied 7 months ago

You can get any of them as they all contain Clotrimazole. Generic versions are fine.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
