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:

      It’s really scary and depressing to find out you have this virus. When I found out, last Wednesday, I went through the emotions and the pain of a severe breakout (8 in total, all in separate spots). Today, almost a week later, I can finally move without wanting to scream. My best friends, during this time, were my detachable shower head, Naproxen, and Lidocaine 5% cream. (If you do not have a detachable shower head I recommend one or get a Peri Bottle. They help for keeping clean and for pain relief) Just as everyone here, we want this to be over with. The pain to go away. To feel “normal” again. I’ve researched and read everything I could get ahold of. Then I read about Monolaurin. It's a substance that's derived from lauric acid that is found in coconut oil and human breast milk. It supposedly helps immensely with our virus from hell!  I read that this woman started using it and she hasn’t had a break out in 2 years AND when she does feel one coming on she doubles up on her dose and BOOM, it’s gone! I ordered some off of Amazon and can’t wait for it to get here! What can it hurt, right? Seriously, what do we have to lose (besides a breakout, hopefully!) Here’s some info if you have never heard of it and want to know more. Good luck and keep your head up!   https://www.verywellhealth.com/the-benefits-of-monolaurin-89482

      To be fair it would be hard to prove, you could have an oral infection for years before

      No they will stay anonymous due to not wanting them to be outed no doubt. That's if anything goes further cause it will be hard to prove damages hsv wise surely.

      I am doing this, but also taking other supplements at the same time. I drink a ton of water so it's easy to have lemon water on hand. I am on week 2 now.
