Thank you for asking HCM
Your problem is most likely yeast infection.For such condition i usually prescribe clotrimazole ointment for local application or vaginal suppository.I also prescribe them fluconazole tablet weekly once for 1 month to stop recurrance.I also advise them to use intimate wash to normalize the vaginal bacterial flora and PH there by decreasing chance of getting further infection. Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
