Abstract : Vulvo-vaginal mycosis is a well known disease: the pathogen is identified, clinical symptomatology is sufficiently evocative for an enlightened patient can establish the diagnosis and available treatments have a good benefit / risk ratio. Based on these arguments, the ANSM has registered the vulvovaginal mycosis to the list of diseases recognized as suitable for use without Medical Prescription. This decision switches the care of vulvovaginal mycosis in the area of ​​self-medication and promotion to the general public. The treatment of this disease is based on the azole antifungal family (drug status). These may be accompanied by products which rebalance the vaginal flora (food supplement status or medical device status) and by intimate hygiene products (cosmetics status) to minimize risk factors. Medicines, food supplements, medical devices and cosmetics cohabit in the pharmacy and into promotional tools. The ANSM and the DGCCRF, French authorities warrantor of the promotion, establish specific regulations for each of these statutes and supervise their applications. The goal is to ensure transparency and accuracy of information related to the product to allow pharmacists and patients / consumers to choose without being cheated and used it correctly. The aim is praiseworthy: to ensure the good use of the product and the patient's health.
