I went to the doctor 2 days ago. I was told I have a yeast infection. I started the three days treatment the same day. How long will it take to clear?

In brief: Yeast treatment

If it is topically up to 2-3 weeks.
A diflucan (fluconazole) pill may work within 72 hours. This can be purchased over the counter. It may need to repeated times 1 in 7 days. Insure all partners are treated at the same time and there is no sex until both of you are adequately treated.
