How to Use sulfanilamide

Vaginal Cream

This medicine is only for use in the vagina. Wash hands before and after use. Read package directions carefully before using. Screw the applicator onto the end of the tube and squeeze the tube to fill the applicator. Remove the applicator from the tube. Lie on your back. Gently insert the applicator tip high in the vagina and push the plunger to release the cream into the vagina. Gently remove the applicator. Wash the applicator well with warm water and soap. Use at regular intervals as directed by your health care professional. Finish the full course of treatment even if you think your condition is better. Do not stop using this medicine if your menstrual period starts during the time of treatment.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?

They need to know if you have any of these conditions:

  • an unusual or allergic reaction to sulfanilamide, sulfa drugs, other medicines, foods, dyes, or preservatives
  • pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • breast-feeding
What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, use only that dose. Do not use double or extra doses.

What should I watch for while using this medicine?

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your symptoms do not start to get better within a few days.

If you develop abdominal pain, a fever greater than 100 degrees F, or foul-smelling vaginal discharge, contact your doctor or health care professional. Do not self-treat if you have these symptoms. These are signs of a more serious infection and you will need examined by a qualified health care professional.

It is better not to have unprotected sex until you have completely finished this treatment. Many vaginal infections are spread by sexual activity. It is recommended that your partner wear a condom during intercourse while you are being treated. If your partner has itching or redness of the genitals, they should also see a health care professional about these symptoms. They may also need evaluation and treatment.

Your clothing may get soiled if you have a vaginal discharge. You can wear a sanitary napkin. Do not use tampons. Tampons can absorb this medicine and decrease the efficacy of the medication. If possible, wear freshly washed cotton, not synthetic, panties.

Where should I keep my medicine?

Keep out of the reach of children.

Store at room temperature below 30 degrees C (86 degrees F). Protect from cold. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.
