Could still be yeast: Do not apply Hydrocortisone for any type of Infection. How did you get rid of Yeast Infection? May be it did not get cured. OTC Vaginal cream Monistat1, 3, 7 are available. You can use it for 1,3 or 7 days. If you already used it and you need to be examined by the Physician for proper Diagnosis. May be Red spot is due to your nails scratching.

For a yeast infection it is best to take Monistat 7 for all 7 days. You should see a Gynecologist Doctor to be sure of your diagnosis and receive treatment for your problem.
