Thanks for asking the query,

Monistat is the fungal cream to treat vaginal infections, it will not cause any harm to the teeth and gums since you ingested it and if you do not have any symptoms, no need to worry.
If you develop symptoms such as itching, rashes you can get the checkup done.
Meanwhile maintain a good oral hygiene, use antiseptic mouthwash rinses twice daily.

Hope this helps out.

Hi and wleocme to HCM.
well, it happens:) i ve seen more bizarre stuff. It is recommended to get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away if swallow this but i dont htink this is neccessary in your case as it was minor dose. YOu might feel abdominal discomfort but nothing bad can happen. This might be dangerous for infants but you dont have to be concerned. Just avoid alcohol and other medicines for 2-3 days after the incident. WIsh you good health.

Hello dear
Just relax , nothing to worry about.You are totally safe n sound.Monistat is an antifungal cream for vaginal infections and Monistat is not going to harm your teeth or gums neither your stomach.So just chill and forget everything.In the mean while just maintain your oral hygiene, do warm saline rinses twice a day.
If possible take some antioxident supplement capsules.
