Welcome to ehealthforum,
Yeast infection usually takes about 7-10 days to go away. Wait for atleast a week after finishing with the treatment. Consider getting your partner treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Maintain healthy diet.
