HI, thanks for using healthcare magicCanesten
is one of the topical creams that is used for vaginal candidiasis
, though there are other treatments.
YOur doctor was right in stating that sometimes additional therapy is needed.If you use the prolonged course and the response is inadequate then you should have a swab done to confirm that it is yeast infection and if there is any resistance to medication.
The lumps may have occurred as a result of the inflammatory process of the infection.
You can visit your doctor for an assessment.
I hope this helps
