May not be yeast: If you have vaginal itch and it is not getting better with yeast cream then the cause may not be yeast. In that case you will need to see an Obgyn to see what is wrong and what can be done to fix it

Itching: You should start feeling better in a day but it will take a week to be fully treated. If it doesn't get better it may not be yeast. Call your doctor.
