Azole drug: Look for an over-the-counter product with active ingredient ending in "azole", e.g. clotrimazole, miconazole, terconazole, and others. All work equally well; you can choose the cheapest. If uncertain, ask a pharmacist. Clumpy discharge with itching often is due to yeast, but not always. If it doesn't clear up in a few days, you'll need to see a doctor or clinic for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I had yeast infection after got treatment (7day course) still only itching. Due to use femmine wash? I never use femmine wash before had infection.

I had yeast infection after got treatment (7day course) still only itching. Due to use femmine wash? I never use femmine wash before had infection.

Possibly: The vagina always contains bacteria & other microbes but, if they're in a healthy balance, there's no need for treatment. Feminine washes (douching) can upset that balance & trigger infection. Since there's normally no need to use them & they may have caused a problem for you, I recommend you stop using them. Best wishes. ...Read more

Something or nothing: Perhaps 3d antifungal treatment wasn't adequate duration. Or you might have resistant infection. Or non-yeast infection. Best to go see your Family Doc, GYN or Planned Parenthood for evaluation if standard antifungal treatment doesn't resolve your symptoms. ...Read more

Yeast treatment: If you're very uncomfortable while waiting for the three day treatment to clear the infection, try an antiyeast vaginal cream that has a corticosteroid in it as well. Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream is one. Your gynecologist is best qualified to advise you however. ...Read more

You could...: Try another 1 day treatment.....or you could see your doctor for confirmation that it's a yeast infection and get a dose of Diflucan (fluconazole) which works very well at eradicating yeast infections in one shot; or if you prefer a prescription cream that works a bit better than the OTC Monistat. Best wishes to you. ...Read more
