Hi, I have a simple short question. I accidentally used metrodinazole gel for a yeast infection. I noticed it wasn't working and immediately knew it wasn't right and have since started using an antifungal, my question is will this hurt me in anyway?

Could falsly using bv medicine give me BV? It was completely on accident I wasn't paying attention and the names of the antifungal for yeast and the antibiotic for bv are a little similar. As soon as i noticed i started using miconazole

Thank you very much for responding Susan!
Your information was very helpful! I used the metrodinazole for 3 days and not very much with each insert. Everything is starting to feel a lot better with miconazole and symptoms were unchanging while i was using metrodinazole actually maybe they were getting worse. Anyways, thanks for your helpful comment!

Hi tbaby542

I'm glad I could help and that you are feeling better. You'll be right as rain in no time. 

And don't forget to read your labels, what if it was Preparation H?! :)

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

Yes, this medication is used for BV, Trich and other genital infections, as well as skin conditions like rosacea. 

These infections are bacterial or parasitic in nature - the medication will not cause you to get these bacteria or parasites if you don't have them to begin with. 

You should be fine - however, it might be a good idea to check with your pharmacist that neither gel will interact with each other when used so closely together. Better safe than sorry.
