Hi... I understand your concern.
You can continue using clotrimazole cream twice a day for a total of 7 to 10 days and for the severe itching you can take syrup Benadryl 10 ml 3 times a day.But as you have been using this cream and the it is returning only after temporary results I suggest you getting yourself evaluated by your gynecologist.
They might take a vaginal swab for microscopy and most probably might start you on Oral antifungal and oral antiprotozoal drugs also.
Mean by for the temporary relief of the itching you can use Benadryl as I had suggested but you will require your gynecologist consultation please."

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
