I have had 2 yeast infections in my life so far and both have responded incredibly well to medication. With the first one, I used Monistat, and it worked like a charm. With my most recent one, I used Miconazole, and it also responded well. I find that wearing loose, soft clothing decreases the amount of discomfort. Sleeping in the nude even helps; it "airs it out," so to speak.

Try Miconazole. It's a brand of Monistat. It's the best. I use the three-day and on the third day, I am so happy it's gone. I was told by a pharmacist to use it the first time. It was embarrassing for me to ask her, but she was so helpful and even told me of her own experiences, which made me feel more comfortable. Now, when I'm in the aisle, and I see someone looking through boxes, I tell them to get Miconazole!

I have a 9yr old daughter with severe yeast infection. Redness, itching, and she even gets blisters filled with blood. I don't know if this is from itching and these blood filled blisters form or what it is from. She has been using medication for a good week now and it is getting better, but blisters are still forming on and off at times.
