No: My question would be how you have that diagnosis in the absence of symptoms. Sometimes a pap result will report the presence of yeast and some will treat based on this finding. Yeast is not an abnormal finding in and of itself. The overgrowth of yeast is abnormal and leads to the characteristic discharge and symptoms. The mere presence of yeast does not necessarily warrant treatment.

OTC yeast creams: Vaginal yeast infections are treated with over the counter yeast creams, such as monistat. See your doctor, however, if there is no improvement or worsening after treatment as there could be other infections occurring that mimic a yeast infection.
