In brief: Yeast infection

As long as you washed your hands well first, after 6 days with applicators and relieved symptoms, probably nothing to worry about.
Worst case scenario would be having to retreat the infection, which sometimes needs to be done after the next menstrual period anyway in many women. You can use OTC medications if your symptoms return.
