A yeast medication can burn due to the infection. One to try that may be best is over the counter Vagistat One. Ticonazole. If you have burning, use an ice pack. The burning should not last longer than an hour. the ice pack should take most of it away.

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.
