Thanks for writing to us.
Dettol, savlon or harsh chemical soaps shouldn't be used to clean genitals as can lead to irritant reaction and also hamper the acidic PH milieu of vagina which is important in preventing infections.

To treat vaginal candidiasis
Take oral fluconazole..
Apply candid cream in affected area
Take tab cetirizine if there is too much of itching
Clean the area with warm saline water.

Hope that helps.
Take care.
