How can swelling in the body after taking Monistat be treated?

I took monistat 1 about 7 hours ago and I woke up about an hour ago and went to go clean myself up and realized I’m extremely swollen it feels like I’m getting turned inside out, I took 2 Benadryl and I have an ice pack rn, can this be solved without going to the doctor?

It can be an allergic response. You can take antihistamines like pheneramine for symptomatic relief.
If symptoms persist, you can consult a physician and get evaluated.

I got a yeast infection after taking oral antibiotics. I used Monistat 1 day treatment but the ovule seemed to have not left the meds inside my vagina so I bought another and retreated myself. That was yesterday and I still have symptoms and it appears that I have irritated or made my external vulva bleed. Should I retreat or just keep the area clean and dry?

I have a yeast infection and bought the monistat 3 day. I was unable to insert the tube due to swelling. Once I pushed the tube in blood squirted out and it was dark red. What caused the blood? I tried the second day to insert and again unable so I did not persue.

Can Monistat 3 ovule cause a sore throat? After using a perfumed substance down there I assumed I had a yeast infection because of the thick white discharge. I started Monistat 3. The morning after I noticed my throat was sore. The second day I had tingling all over my body (but not in the vaginal area). I have completed the three day treatment and still have a sore throat (no swelling or discoloration anywhere on my body). I have not had and burning or itching in my vaginal region. Could this product have the make-up of amoxicillin; cause I am allergic to that as well.
