Yeast infection: Yeast Vaginal infection are usually due to Candida species. Single dose fluconazole followed by anti fungal cream is the first line for treatment. Symptoms should take few days to resolve. If your symptoms are persistent or recurrent you might need a longer course of oral antibiotics.
