Do I need confirmation from a doctor to treat for a possible yeast infection? Is there any harm if its not? What would be the best treatment?

In brief: No

You do not need to see a doctor and do not need a prescription for a yeast infection.
There are over the counter inserts like Monistat. If you would rather take a pill, then you would need to see a doctor.
