See your Doc: A yeast infection that is not responding to those meds is either not a yeast infection or a sign of diabetes.

May not be yeast: Vaginal infections that don't respond to the over-the-counter creams and Fluconazole may not be yeast infections. Bacterial vaginosis and other vaginal infections may cause similar symptoms. You should have a pelvic exam to look for those things. If it is yeast, you may need a longer course of medicine. You may also need to help "good bacteria" grow by taking probiotics or cultured yogurt.
