Treated for candida. Swab shows haemophilus influenzae in vaginal area. Prescribed antibiotics. Right treatment?

Hi my 8 year old daughter has had a vaginal discharge for about 3 months. She tested positive for a urinary tract infection and was treated with 10 days of Augmentin . This did not clear it up so she was then prescribed a once off treatment of flucanozole and Canesten for Candida which did not clear it up. After a swab she has haemophilus influenzae in the vaginal area so has been prescribed another course of antibiotics (Zinnat) Does this sound right?

As the swab was positive for bacteria like Haemophilus influenza,she was prescribed antibiotics.
It is the correct procedure.
If the vaginal discharge is not subsided,please send the discharge for culture and sensitivity.
Wish her speedy recovery
