Will a yeast infection go away without treatment? If so how long? And how do you stop just the symptoms?

In brief: Yeast symptoms/cure

Vaginal yeast infections are diagnosed by the MD based upon the symptoms of itching and a thick white discharge and confirmed by microscopic exam of a vaginal sample.
Relieving the external vulvar "symptoms" with a topical agent does not produce a "cure" of the infection without an vaginal or oral Rx to do so. See a GYN MD for evaluation if you suspect that this is the case.
