I am on the first day after using monistat 3 and no relief, I'm hoping the reviews about relief happening after the second dose are true. I took a test to make sure it was not a more serious infection and so far this medicine has not helped me. I wish I would've gone to the doctor first.

Otherwise, you may be allergic to an ingredient within the product. Ho ... Show Full Comment
