Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You will need to get a vaginal swab for culture to confirm the infection. Bacterial infection will not respond to fluconazole for example.
Sometimes yeast can be resistant to low dose fluconazole. In that case, a different oral antifungal like itraconazole should be considered.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
