Itching: Treatment for gonorrhea with antibiotics can destroy bacteria, and allow yeast (fungal) infections. There are many kinds of "yeast" and some are less obvious. Ask your gyn physician to try other forms of antifungal medications and you can apply some of the cream or ointment to the outside vaginal folds.
