Hello I recently discovered that I have a yeast infection


Q: Hello. I recently discovered that I have a yeast infection for the second time. My first one was in Ovtober and I was prescribed medication. I called my doctor this past week and they said to get Monistat 7 and I am now on my third day. It burns pretty badly upon insertion-so much to the point where I can't sit still. Everyone has mixed opinions on this. Some people say it is part of healing, and some say it is not good at all and I need to change medications. Do I need to switch? I have no known medication allergies up to date.
