See answer: I am not convinced that you have a UTI unless a urine culture has been done to verify it.

What treatment?: Some treatments are more effective than others, and sometimes you can have resistant yeast or bacteria that doesn't respond 100% to the treatment you've been given. I would get re-tested to confirm infection and see if there is a way to get antibiotic "sensitivities" on the organisms that grow. In addition, you may want to find a vaginal probiotic supplement/suppository to build up your defenses. ...Read more

Vulvovaginitis: Sounds like you have a bad case vulvovaginitis, which is inflammation of the vagina and the surrounding areas.
