Re: intense external itching

You took the medicine for 75 days? That seems like an awful long time to treat a yeast infection. Did your doctor check for bacterial infection? If you didn't get relief from the treatment for yeast you may have something else or need another yeast treatment.....I'm assuming that the 75 days was a typo. If it was really that long, then I can't imagine a yeast infection surviving that long under treatment. You should at least call your doctor and ask what to do next since you're still suffering after treatment.

Are you using any kind douche, feminine cleanser, scented soap? If you're using anything besides a mild soap (like Dove) you should stop using and try the mild. It is very easy to upset the PH levels in the vaginal region with cleansers and this causes irritation and infection.
