Brief Answer:
Consider alternative diagnosis apart from candida

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If you still have burning with no bacteria in culture you should consider alternative diagnosis. They can be lichen sclerosis, seborrhoeic dermatitis which a dermatologist or sexual medicine expert can consider.
Speak to your doctor about these alternatives apart from candida or trichomonas.
Till then replace soaps with vulval based moisturizers as dermatitis co exists with infections.
