Yeast infection...: ...is the most common cause of vaginal burning or itching, and can be difficult to confirm even by expert physicians. Ask your doctor if yeast could have been missed, or if it would make sense to try treatment for the possibility. Treatment is easy with vaginal creams or inserts, or a single dose of fluconazole (Diflucan®) by mouth. So maybe it's worth a try. Good luck.
