Vulvovaginitis : It is possible you have a "mixed" infection with more than one infectious agent that wasn't tested. In addition, you may be resistant to the antibiotic, even though it is intended to eradicate the identified organism. You need to follow up with the gynecologist and search for an explanation for the failed therapy.
