I've been having vaginal discomfort for a month. Slight burning and itching plus irritation during sex. Used yeast infection med with no improvement?
Resistant yeast? A few percent of vaginal yeast infections are caused by yeasts resistant to the usual treatments with "azole" drugs (miconazole, clotrimazole, fluconazole, etc). Or maybe you have something other than yeast. It's time to see a doctor for professional diagnosis and perhaps a prescription for non-azole treatment. Good luck!
I think I've had a yeast infection for almost 2 weeks now, itching, burning, painful during sex, white discharge and smell is off. What do I do?
