Is good to use dettol to wash my vagina? Can it fight against yeast infection?

Bad idea: Dettol is a good antiseptic for toilets, sinks ; counters not for vaginas. Vagina is designed to keep itself clean ; normally contains lactobacilli (good bacteria) which tend to keep vagina infection free. Best to wash around vagina with unscented soap. Vaginal yeast, if present, can be treated with antifungals such as monistat, Gyne-Lotrimin or miconazole. Dettol will kill good bacteria.

Phenolic compounds have fungicidal and germicidal activity. It is great for cleaning surfaces and disinfecting skin surfaces (small area for short period of time) but it would be too irritating and toxic for mucosal surfaces.

What do I do if flucconazole 50mg doesn't cure my yeast infection?

Maybe not yeast: Probably you mean 150 mg, the usual dose of single dose fluconazole (Diflucan) by mouth for vaginal yeast infections. Maybe it isn't yeast; you need to see a doctor for sure. It could be an STD, for example. Some yeast infections are resistant to "azole" drugs -- in which case you need doctor's care and prescription. Good luck!
