In brief: Yeast still likely

Even if you have no sign, nor the baby any sign, that history sounds suspicous for yeast.
Get a good assessment by an experienced lactation consultant, and try to find a sympathetic doctor who would be willing to listen to the treatment suggestions by the lactation consultant. A provider that is an lc and an arnp would be able to see you and probably write a script for treationg you and the baby.
