Vaginal itch, clumpy white discharge, no odor. Took one dose diflucan (fluconazole) yesterday. Still itches and uncomfortable especially when sitting.??

Diflucan (fluconazole) takes days: Diflucan (fluconazole) takes a few days to treat a more stubborn yeast infection. Itching indicates that the yeast is deep enough to create enough inflammation to trigger nerve endings. So if after a week, the itching does not go away, I usually recommend using an OTC antifungal cream externally to finish the job. If that does not help, see your GYN. ...Read more

Took a 1-dose fluconazole 2 days ago, there is no more itching but there are still signs of vaginal discharge. Should I go back to the dr.? Is it cured?

Give it a week: It take several days for symptoms of yeast to clear up entirely. Give it a few more days, then recheck with your doctor if you still have discharge or symptoms. Or if in doubt, get the discharge checked anyway. Discharge isn't usually the main yeast symptom, and you may need to be checked for STDs (depending on risks) and other causes. ...Read more

But the odor and discharge suggests a bacterial infection. The continued itching could indicate a yeast infection that did not respond to fluconazole. You should see your doctor. ...Read more
