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:

      Day 14 No improvements  new blisters keep forming in the same area. Still using Acyclovir 2 x 800mg/day and all the other supps.

      What dosage are you using daily, and how long did it take for you to notice a difference? I didn't see any improvement in 8 days but realise it might have been too short for an experiment.

      WelI I got my results. I got scared because they say consultation needed but I know I have hsv1. So I see it's negative for hsv2. Using the igG bloodtest. It's been about 5 wks since I've felt funny. Again the derm said malluscum and another doc say monders. I'm saying I disturbed the area from being rough for hrs with a condom. My question to the experienced ones is after 5 wks would you think is have some kind of detectable antibodies. Again nothing ever blistered or ulcrred. After sex I remember using antibacterial hand soap down ther in the shower and honestly that's when I burned for a few days lol. That went away and I'm left with a sore raw feel. I have an appointment soon. I want to make sure it's H before they prescribe and operate smh.    Questions.  After 5 weeks never ulcered or pussed, would you think I should have some kind of antibodies fighting it off so it doesn't ulcer? Or I should be having a full ob by now because I have been stressing. Not eating losing sleep and all. What's your intake my friends. Btw the igG test I did specifically says 4 to 6 wks. 6 wks itll above 90% accurate. Elisa herpe select. Is the name of it. I'm 5 wks in from discomfort.

      Had same symptoms . Burning in penis , nerve pain , lower back pain etc  girl I caught it from had positive viral culture on her vagina for genital herpes 8 years prior but tested negative igg prior to us sleeping together so she assumed she didn't have it anymore .  started dating another girl recently who had positive swab for herpes on vagina in 2013 but tests negative for igg for both types of HSV currently . She also assumed she "beat it" and was no longer a carrier . She gets burning nerve pain all over , constant lower back pain , itchiness all over etc  with both women I experienced a burning sensation in fingertips upon touching there vagina , with the second one I knew exactly what was happening and it scared the hell out of me . Now I'm going thru the initial exposure symptoms all over again except they are alittle different . Headache , pressure behind right eye , burning and pinching sensations all over , lower back pain , weakness and fatigue , burning spots on skin, outbreak on chin , cramping etc I had chronic health issues and poor GI function prior to catching HSV so my immune system responds very poorly to these viruses. testing for hsv 2 is very , very inaccurate . And there are multiple strains of hsv 2 . Viruses mutate slightly with each new host as does  the antigen and antibody response . I'm learning the hard way that just because you have hsv 2 doesn't mean you are immune to hsv 2, so if you start dating someone new who has hsv2 you are going to pick up there strain and they will pick up yours . I currently test positive for only hsv 1 and it's been 8 months since I caught type 2.   one word of advice , I would recommend eating a lower histamine diet and avoid highly acidic foods or drinks . They flare the virus for me and others as well. Also keep stress levels down and be sure to get low intensity exercise everyday to balance nervous system. wilson is very, very uneducated when it comes to hsv and the symptoms it can present as well as testing accuracy . You would think he would be clued in after reading how many consistencies in "atypical" symptoms people post about after exposure on this board as well as the the large amount of people who have positive swabs but negative IGG testing or people with classic hsv symptoms but negative blood work results long after initial exposure... so little is known about these viruses and what they do to our bodies , another word of advice is that after initial exposure rate of viral shedding is very high so be very careful around people you live with or come in contact with . This virus spreads like wildfire in people right after initial exposure . It lives on inanimate surfaces and objects for a minimum of 4 hours and up to several days depending on uv light exposure , air temp and humidity and other environmental factors . All it takes is virus to skin contact for transmission , and in someone with poor health or of old age they pick it up much easier and it can cause serious health issues.

      hello I received oral from woman with possible herpes. Could someone here please tell how initial breakout looks on glans of penis ? I noticed a bit of redness on penis head, with what looks like beginning of bumps. I have also noticed one side of my buttocks has muscle pain, but cannot remember doing any exercise or movement to trigger this muscle pain.

      The possible herpes area does not feel pain, but it's only been 3-4 days now. I feel some tingles, but not sure if psychosomatic at this point due to focusing to see if I feel symptoms. There is definite new redness with skin looking slightly differently textured. I will be going to a clinic tonight.  Thanks
