Hi Thank you for asking HCM. have gone through your query. It is better to a swab test to rule out yeast infection or other conditions like bacterial vaginosis. There is possibility of allergic reaction to clotrimazole also. In such case change to another drug like miconazole or terbinafine will be helpful. Taking fluconazole orally also helps. For reducing the itching taking anti histamines like cetrizine will be helpful. Avoid using soaps and irritants to wash the genital area and instead you can use saline or warm water. You can also use intimate wash regularly to normalize vaginal bacterial flora and PH. Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear. Thanks.
