See a Gynecologist: Vaginal discharge , irritation may associated with a infection other than a yeast infection. You should see your gynecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. You may have a yeast infection resistant to that specific otc medication. Other infections such a bacterial vaginosis, trichomonas, contact dermatitis , or other skin conditions can have similar symptoms to a yeast infection.

STD testing: Uti's don't cause white discharge, but antibiotics for UTI can cause yeast overgrowth. Std testing requires blood and some vaginal secretions to be checked.
