Brief Answer:
Over the counter yeast medication or prescription oral medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using healthcaremagic

Vaginal itching is most commonly due to yeast infection, even if you are not seeing a discharge at this point.


These can be treated with oral medication or topical treatment.

Orally: Fluconazole , one tablet, can be used. This will require a prescription.

Topical treatment may be over the counter eg canesten, gyno- lotrimin, monistat, vagistat

Depending on the cream used treatment can be 3 to 7 days

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

HI

Sorry about the delayed reply

No , unfortunately not allowed to call in or write prescriptions, only advise about the treatment that can be used.

As mentioned, the creams are usually over the counter so a prescription is not needed.
