USES: This product is used to treat certain types of vaginal infections (e.g., mixed fungal and bacterial infections).

HOW TO USE: This product is for vaginal use only. Insert one applicatorful of cream deep into the vagina, once daily before bedtime for 10 days; or take as directed by your doctor. Insert the applicator high into the vagina and press the plunger to release the medication. After each use, clean the applicator with warm soapy water and rinse well.

Your sexual partner may require medication to prevent re- infection. Consult your doctor.
