Back in late April my Doctor told me I had a vaginal yeast

This answer was rated:

Back in late April my Doctor told me I had a vaginal yeast infection as I was dealing with persistent itching and burning in my vagina and my vulva. Last week I got swabs done for my vagina and results came back negative for any sexual transmitted disease, thrush or BV. Although my vagina may be clear I am still experiencing an irritation on my vulva especially on the inside of my labia. It looks a little inflamed and I still experience burning. My GP basically told me I need to use 1% hydrocortisone and E45 cream for 1-2 weeks. My concern is that this has gone on for a long time now and I'm desperate to get it fixed! Can you help?
JA: The Obstetrician-Gynaecologist can help. To begin, how long have you dealt with the yeast infection? Have you experienced this in the past?
Customer: Yes, once in the past before in February, and again end of April. So more than 1 month now but my GP confirmed I am clear of yeast now.
JA: Thanks for that. OK, more personal questions coming up I'm afraid - when was your last smear test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?
Customer: 2 years ago, not due for a smear test until early 2021
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Obstetrician-Gynaecologist should know?
Customer: I am on the contraceptive pill called Lizinna and have been with my partner for almost 5 years. I have not had sex since February (since my first round of vaginal thrush)
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Just to add, I have also been washing my vulva with an E45 emollient wash cream

Thank you.

It is most probbaly vaginal thrush.

You need to apply anti fungal cream such as clotrimazole.

You can buy it over the counter
