Gyne-Lotrimin is an anti-fungal medicine used for treating yeast infections, external itching and irritation in the vaginal area caused by yeast infections. This is an azole anti-fungal agent and it works to weaken the cell membrane of the fungus, thus resulting in the death of the fungus and gradually reducing vaginal discharge, alleviating irritation/ burning, infection in and around the vagina. Women can buy Gyne-Lotrimin online by getting the cream prescribed by a licensed doctor.
Proper way of applying Gyne-Lotrimin
You should fill the applicator with Gyne-Lotrimin cream and then insert one applicator full of the cream into the vagina. Repeat this process for about seven days during night time. Each time you use Gyne-Lotrimin cream, use a new applicator and dispose the applicator after being used.
