Clotrimazole Vaginal Uses

How to use Clotrimazole Vaginal
Read the Patient Information Leaflet available with this product. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
If you are pregnant, follow your doctor's instructions on how to use the applicator to insert this medication.
Use the medication once daily, usually at bedtime or as directed by your doctor. Wash your hands before using the medication. If using the cream, use the disposable applicator. Follow the package instructions on how to fill the disposable applicator with the cream. Lie on your back with your knees toward your chest. Insert one applicator full of cream into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Slowly press the plunger of the applicator all the way down to apply the cream. If you have itching/burning around the outside of the vagina (vulva), apply some cream to that area as well.
If using the vaginal tablet or combination pack, you may use either the applicator or your finger to insert the tablet. Unwrap the tablet before use. Follow the package instructions on how to fill the applicator with a vaginal tablet. Lie on your back with your knees toward your chest. Insert one applicator with a tablet into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go. Slowly press the plunger of the applicator all the way down to release the tablet. If you have itching/burning around the outside of the vagina (vulva), apply the cream to that area. After use, throw away the applicator and wash your hands.
Continue to use this medication every day for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days or if your menstrual period starts. Stopping the medication too soon may allow the yeast infection to return. Do not use tampons or douches while using this medication. Unscented sanitary napkins may be used for your menstrual period or to protect your clothing from leakage of the medication.
Inform your doctor if your condition persists or returns 1 week after completing the treatment.
