In brief: OTC measures

Vaginal yeast infection? First are you sure that's what it is? If you've had them before and are quite sure, try the otc topical creams like gyne-lotrimin, monistat and such.
Avoid the one-day treatments as they they are so strong they can cause ulceration of the vaginal mucosa. If your symptoms do not resolve within five days, see your doc for a sure diagnosis.

In brief: Get treated

Assuming you are referring to a vaginal yeast infection, there are several over the counter medications that work well, simply as your pharmacist for assistance if you can not find them on the shelf.
If recurrent, see your dr for testing and get rx meds.
