Yeast infection: Typically vaginal irritation can occur days 1-3 so don't worry it's the medication fighting the infection

Yeast: You're probably still having burning from the yeast infection. It will most likely take 3-4 days before you feel back to normal. If the burning persists past that time, you may need to get checked out for other sources of discomfort. I hope this helps!
