I've had several yeast infections in the past so it's pretty easy for me to identify when I'm starting to show symptoms of one. About a week and a half ago I started to notice the sore, burning, itching, discharge...etc etc. After a few days it was clear I had a YI, so I ran out to my local drugstore and bought the 3 day Monistat treatment. Usually this does the trick, but after completing the regimen... oh my god, still itching! Still burning!
I can't see a doctor right now because I don't have health insurance and all the walk-in clinics around me charge way too much for someone as broke as me (there are no free options for me, believe me, I've done my research). Obviously I don't want to get another Monistat treatment for fear the yeast will simply become resistant.
What's a girl to do? How do I kick this thing without seeing a doc and getting prescribed Diflucan or something? My vagina needs help!
