Dr. C. :

Hi and welcome to the site. My name is Dr. C. and I'll be providing your medical information today.

Dr. C. :

There may be an over the counter pill available called fluconazole. The usual dosage is 150mg once by mouth.

Dr. C. :

If you're still not feeling better within 24 hours of taking the pill, you'll need to be examined by a doctor or other medical provider.

Dr. C. :

In the meantime applying cold packs or cold plain yogurt will sooth the tissue.
