If OTC treatments are not helping, it often means that your symptoms are not from a yeast infection.

In that case, it's usually best to see a doctor to figure out what is causing the symptoms.

Other possible causes include contact irritation, hormonal changes, and various skin conditions.

Citrucel is mainly methylcellulose fiber, which is unlikely to cause vaginal symptoms. Best wishes.
