No: This medication can't permanently damage your vagina. Having said that, it sounds like the treatment isn't working. It could be that you have a resistant yeast infection, or that you have a bacterial infection which isn't being treated by the Monistat. I would recommend seeing a doctor to get an accurate diagnosis and likely changing your treatment regimen. But don't worry, no long term damage.

Get checked: A yeast infection does not usually cause an ulcer. You should have this checked.
