Yeast treatment: If it is topically up to 2-3 weeks. A diflucan (fluconazole) pill may work within 72 hours. This can be purchased over the counter. It may need to repeated times 1 in 7 days. Insure all partners are treated at the same time and there is no sex until both of you are adequately treated.
