Is there a yeast infection cream containing 4 percent miconozale

Customer Question

Is there a yeast infection cream containing 4 percent miconozale nitrate,similar to the US product Monistat 3, available on prescription in the UK ?. I am aware of daktarin and other yeast infection creams here, but they are not as effective or potent as Monistat 3, which contains 4% miconozale nitrate .

I have placed orders from the US and the shipping and import charges are rather. Crippling.

I desperately need this product or its equivalent as I have suffered from severe fungal/ dandruff on the scalp and the miconazole nitrate 4 % has worked wonders on my scalp.

Any advise as to where and how I can obtain an exact UK equivalent, would be greatly appreciated

Dr. Bob :

Have you tried any of the other antifungals? Terbinafine, econazole, griseofulvin?

Dr. Bob :

These are all highly effective agents that are often used when otc miconazole does not eliminate the dermatophyte.

Dr. Bob :
