In brief: Very bad idea

Mometasone is a steroid medication (like cortisone) that reduces inflammation.
If you treat yourself the itching may go away temporarily, but the yeast will get worse and when you stop the cream you will be much worse off. Vaginal yeast infections are treated with antifungal medicine - eg monistat.
