Dear customer,

Thank you for coming back online.

Diflucan usually taken as single 150 mg dose and an improvement in symptoms is usually seen within one to three days.

As it has been only 12 hours now,when you took diflucan,it may take another upto another 24 hours for your symptoms to start getting improving.

Yes,to get quick relief from your symptoms,of itching & burning you can apply ointment hydrocortisone & this will help greatly to subside the symptoms till you the diflucan show its affect.

Also (if available),you can apply ointment monistat vaginal cream.It is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent.It is available as over the counter without prescription.

So bot***** *****ne is that yes,for the time being,you can apply hydrocortisone cream to get subside your symptoms of itching & burning sensation.

Hope this helped
