I know this probably cant help you. But, ive had a yeast infection for about 4 yrs. Its not on the inside like i thought yeast infections were suppose to be. But, its on my skin. I have tried everything. Someone told me its because I have diabetes. But, it is under control. I've been using cream off the counter. Like for yeast infections but, its for external use. Sometimes it can be bright red. And, sometimes light in color. And, thats when I think I'm getting rid of it. Not. It does make you desperate. I went for a pap test last yr. And, the dr. prescribe an expensive cream. Couldnt afford to get it. Well, sorry that this wouldnt help you.
