Confirm diagnosis: Need to make sure it is yeast infection and not irritant vulvitis.It is done by seing yeast on wet prep by your doctor or a culture.If it confirmed yeast, you need to rule out diabetes and oral contraceptive use, HIV infection, chronic antibiotic therapy.Butoconazole more effective, weekly rx with terazole may help, Diflucan (fluconazole) once a week may help.Your husband can try terazole, yes you can be back;forth.
