Azole resistance?: A few percent of yeast infections are resistant to all "azole" drugs, so no surprise that both terconazole and fluconazole apparently haven't worked. Or perhaps you have something other than (or in addition to) a yeast infection. Stop all treatment and see a doctor or clinic for diagnosis and probably alternative treatment. Good luck!
