My Dr gave me fluconazole for a yeast infection. Is there anything i can apply topically to ease the burning irritation before the meds kick in?

In brief: Yes

Over the counter Gynazole or Monistat can be applied both to the vagina and a small amount on the vulva which should stop the immediate "burning".
If that fails, ask your MD who provided the Fluconazole Rx for Terazole Rx or another vulvar cream.
