Hi girls. I have a totally embarrassing question to ask you all.
I have a raging yeast infection. I used to have them chronically, but it's been a LONG time since I had one this bad. I think it's because of the heat, humidity, chlorine (pool) and from spending time in the ocean. It could also be because we were told to use protection because of my surgery this month, so we used condoms. DH bought ones with lube and condoms with lube always make me itchy. UGGGG..... I'm also insane allergic to everything that might touch down there and DH forgot my special soap so I used Dial for two days to wash. We also don't have my Purex Free detergent for laundry. Needless to say - I've screwed over my entire routine and my body is rebelling.
Up in Canada we can get Diflucan (pill) without a prescription now under the brand CanesOral. Do you know if we can get that down here? I've tried multiple stores and don't see anything like it here. I didn't think it was that bad at first so I used the Walmart brand 3 day treatment. I was doing better on the third day, then we tried sex and it got way worse again. The Walmart isn't close to us here at all, so I got another Walgreens brand 3 day treatment. I think I'm allergic to something in the formula though because it burns when I put it on now (just when I was getting better!!).
I splurged and went for the regular name brand Monistat this time, the 1 day treatment because it's 1200mg in one ovule versus 200mg in ovules for the 3 day treatment (effectively one massive dose). Do you think that will work better? This is ruining my vacation because I don't want to do anything but sit in the AC!
Or, do you think I should go to the doc and get a Diflucan pill prescription? We have travel insurance so I'm sure an appointment is covered, I just hate to waste my time at a walk in clinic for that. Plus - it's embarrassing.
Uggg....I hope this one day treatment makes me feel better by tomorrow because we are going to Universal Studios!
