Do Monistat 3 or other OTC remedies for yeast infections actually work?
I have a yeast infection and I am miserable. I don't have health insurance and can't afford to see a doctor. Will those OTC remedies for yeast infections actually work? I heard that they can cause more burning and itching before actually helping? What has worked for you in your experience?

I prefer Monistat 1-day treatment (it means you only have to use it once rather than 3 or 7 days). There is a potential that it will irritate you more for a day or two, but that's because it's working, and the skin of your vagina and vulva are REALLY irritated, so it makes things more uncomfortable for a day or so.
If you don't have insurance, you CAN still go to a public clinic or Planned Parenthood and get medical assistance there. Just an FYI.

Monistat and other OTC products are quite effective. You want to start treatment as soon as possible; the earlier you begin treatment, the easier it is to get a handle on it.
Here is a website all about Monistat that will answer all of your questions. There's even a coupon!! Good luck!Source(s): I'm a health educator
