How do I get relief?
Be sure to see your doctor, particularly the first time you have symptoms like vaginal itching, burning and irritation, so that he or she can diagnose the cause and prescribe the right treatment for you.
For example, treating yourself for a yeast infection when you actually have another type of infection may make the problem much worse. With accurate diagnosis, treatment cures most vaginal infections within two weeks or less, often within a few days.
For itching caused by a yeast infection, trust AZO Yeast.
Uncomfortable and annoying but rarely serious, vaginal yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of the yeast Candida. Although yeast are always present in the vagina, an imbalance in bacteria can cause yeast to overgrow, leading to an infection, with symptoms like itching, irritation, swelling and discharge.
1. If this is your first yeast infection...
The key to yeast infection treatment is proper diagnosis. See your doctor first. He or she may prescribe an antifungal medicine, either an antibiotic pill or a cream or suppository that you put into your vagina and allow to dissolve on its own. These yeast infection treatments may be single-dose or something you use or take for 7-days.
To relieve symptoms and prevent future occurrences, you may also try AZO Yeast tablets to relieve symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection.
2. If this is not your first yeast infection...
If you suspect you have a yeast infection based on a past diagnosis and the symptoms are the same, you may want to try a product like AZO Yeast the homeopathic tablet that naturally relieves yeast infection symptoms like itching and swelling and may prevent future occurrences. If your symptoms do not go away, get an exam from your doctor — you may have a more serious infection.
