Yeast infection: My addition is similar to yours, although it probably makes absolutely no difference which way you count. Yes you can use otc creams along with oral fluconazole.

Yes: The 30th would be ok as is 3 days after, and using creams as well is acceptable, and may help the itch more rapidly. Best wishes.
