In brief: Long term Rx

Recurrent Candida is best treated with oral agents such as Nizoral (ketoconazole) or Diflucan for longer periods of time then just 3 days for a single acute infection.
It is not uncommon for the Rx to last up to 2 weeks.

In brief: Depends

Sometimes prolonged antifungals will help.
However, usually figuring out why you have recurrent yeast growth is typically the key. Diabetes, steroid use, recurrrent antibiotic use, hygiene issues all possible. Often times too what is thought of as yeast isn't a yeast infection at all. Time to make an appointment.
