Specializes in Infectious Disease

Up to 10% of vaginal yeast infections are caused by candida resistant to the usual treatment with "azole" drugs. In that case, alternate treatments are necessary. Other conditions can cause vaginal itching, however. Keep working with your doctor, including a possible trial of an alternate yeast treatment. Good luck.
