Resistant yeast: Sometimes yeast infections can recur-- especially if the conditions that allowed it to form in the first place are still there (uncontrolled diabetes, antibiotic use, vaginal factors etc). That said, yeast can also be resistant to anti fungal treatment. This means you may need a higher dose of the original therapy or a different med that would bypass the resistance. Sounds like you may need an MD.
