In brief: The cream you're

using will ease your symptoms fairly quickly (~24 hours) but getting rid of the infection will take longer (up to 7 days).
If you're still having discharge or itching 1 week after taking the Diflucan, (fluconazole) you may need a second treatment or a different treatment. Recurrence, resistance and re-infection are very common with yeast vaginitis. -(
