Monistat 3

Recommended Posts

If you have a OB without blisters but with burning and itching and you use monistat 3 thinking that it is a yeast infection will the symptoms go away if it is a OB or only if it is a yeast infection?

I tried that and it didnt work. Symptoms only go worse. You have to let the virus run its course unfortunately. Do you have antiviral meds? If so, take some. And take some pain meds. Hope you recover soon.

Very worn out thanks for your input smith

smith thanks for your response

well it has not gotten worse matter of fact it got better some but I am still burning a little very little it is worse when I think on it. my ex says there is nothing there it is me still freaking out because he tested positive I am too ashamed to get tested because I know I have it. I have never had the typical symptoms only 1 blister at a time I didnt know it could be herpes but now I do and I have not been the same for almost a month. I feel "symptoms" daily. Pain under my foot which I read somewhere was a symptom, burnining, itching, stabbing pain. I am a wreck a total wreck. I am in a whirlwind of disbelief and denial. I just know I have it I have only been sleeping with my ex husband since our divorce several years ago. We have no idea how long we have had this when I go to my OB GYN I will ask him if he ever tested me for this disease while I was pregnanat at least I will have an idea of when I got infected. I dont know how people deal with this I dont have sores like others I cant even imagine. I will never have sex again because I am not going to subject myself to the shame of possible rejection. This has been a horrible horrible year for me I will be so glad when it is gone.

I can relate..

I can relate to how you feel. I have been diagnosed with it and I'm only 21....I was officially diagnosed in SEPT of 09 but I knew since about April of the same year. The thing that makes em so mad is I have only had sex with 1 person whom I trusted and now my life has been drastically altered. I do feel as though I will never date, I'm not interested in sex, it repulses me. Also I fear going to the doctor. I know my Dr knows I have it but its embarassing. I have a thyroid problem that requires medicine, I have stopped taking that because I ran out and I am too ashamed to go and see him. This has just ruined me.

I noticed that this is an older thread but wanted to reply in case it helps other women who have this question.

In my experience anti-fungals did help things somewhat over a year's period of time which only led to more confusion and delayed diagnosis.

Even with this full-blown current OB this happened. I started with the usual horrible burn and itch. So, took my oral and topical anti-fungals as I have been doing for almost one year. I improved a little for two days during the first part of the OB. Then the real problems started. The itch turned into a rash, vaginal discharge, open sores and swollen lymph nodes.

I am not meaning to alarm you. We are all different. This is just my story.

In my case I think that 1) I had a yeast infection as well as the herpes and the anti-fungals took care of that yeast part or more likely 2) It was just the nature of my OB. I am over two weeks into this OB now. Some days I have hours that I feel less itchy and think "I'm getting better" only to wake up in the middle of the night scratching myself to death. I think that I had convinced myself that after two days on anti-fungals I was improving.

I hope that in your case the anti-fungal helped. All any of us wants is relief right?

Monistat could fix this!!!!!!!

I have been having continuing yeast infections all last year I think about about 4 times and I was prescribe a prescription strength medication all the time and when I came back in January of 2010, it was herpes all the time so any time a woman get a reacurring yeast infection look into it it could be something else......at least it was for me....:confused:

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I hooked up with a girl yesterday and I lightly kissed her on the lips four or five times - these were not heavy deep kisses.  As she was leaving I noticed that she had a cold sore that was healing (scabbed) on the top part of her lip. My lips definitely made contact with the scab. I’ve never had a cold sore and my last std test was negative for everything . Any chance I don’t end up with HSV1 on my mouth now after this incident? I know it’s not the end of the world but everything I read says these sores are crazy contagious and primary outbreaks in adults can be brutal. Any insight is greatly appreciated

      From what I understand shedding studies are expensive but even getting quotes and estimates on this especially in a clinical setting would be a step in the right direction. @destroyhsv, maybe you can look up labcorp or quest diagnostics and call for an estimate or any local labs in your area.

      Hello everyone, Long story short - I had my first outbreak about a year ago, got swabbed and turned out positive to HSV-2. For the first month, I only took valaciclovir when I had an outbreak but seeing that I still had back to back outbreaks, the doctor decided to put me on suppressive therapy. This has never really helped, unfortunately. In the summer, I had no outbreaks for like one and half month but apart from that, I've been having outbreaks every other week. I saw a dermatologist about two weeks ago and he swabbed another lesion that was in my mouth, which in turn revealed positive to HSV-1, although I was on valtrex at that time. He seemed very surprised and said that not responding to valaciclovir is something extremely rare... But reading testimonies here, it doesn't seem to be as rare as people think. The last two~three weeks have been the worst for me: my outbreaks won't stop and it seems to be getting worst and worst. 2 days ago, my doctor put me on the non-generic valaciclovir  just to see if I responded better to the "real" drug but this has not helped so far.  I'm a healthy adult, I eat well, get plenty of sleep (I even take naps ) and exercise 4 to 5 days a week. I supplement daily with organic acerola vitamin C (1000mg), lysine (1 to 2g) and magnesium (500 mg to 1g) and take 1 x 500mg valtrex in the morning and evening.  I'd like to hear stories of people who managed to stop or at least reduce their recurrences and what worked for them. I really need help because that is killing my sexual life, and I'm not even 30. I've read a lot of studies on the internet about people developing resistance to ACV and the likes but none of them mentions an alternative solution for people like me. Actually, I'm not even sure I have developed resistance to ACV because the drug never really worked for me. Moreover, the very few acknowledged ACV resistant cases were in majority immunocompromised patients and as far as I know, this is not my case. I wouldn't really care about that virus if I had only one or two outbreaks a year, but having it non-stop is very hard to handle psychologically. I can't have sex, drink, eat chocolate... Even read that exercising too much could trigger outbreaks. What's left for me to do? Shave my head, go to Bhutan, live with the monks and meditate 12 hours a day?

      I'd participate and pay for it if you figure out how to do a shedding study. I don't think anything other than a shedding study makes sense.

      HSV-2 is only required to be disclosed in some states of the US if and only if you know or could have been reasonably expected to know you have it. There are no laws surrounding HSV-1 disclosure or transmission.
