Brief Answer:
Hello try using flucanazole.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting a query,
If you are getting the yeast infection recurrently I suggest you to take TAB.FLUCANAZOLE 400 mg single dose. This is a prescribed drug you should consult a doctor to get it prescribed for you. Usually there will be flare up of yeast with antibiotics. You should always have antibiotic along with probiotic specially containing SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII.

The chronic yeast always need self care with medicines to prevent recurrence.
Keep the under arms clean and dry.
Do not use perfume or deodorant directly on the skin.

Any query do follow up.
Take care.
