In brief: 2-3 days

Most yeast infections will begin to resolve (improve) about 2-3 days after treatment has been started.
They can be recurrent, especially if medications are not taken for the entire course. Reducing sugar intake, using probiotics, and increasing raw garlic in the diet can help prevent this from happening,

In brief: Vulvovaginitis

It usually happens quickly within a week.
You may want to try Terazole 7 for 7 nights for a resistant yeast infection or see your dr for a culture with sensitivies, if necessary. It is usually best to either get a cream or suppository plus cream and treat the outside of your vulva with cream, too. You may also want to treat your regular partner to prevent reocurrence.
