Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe indicate repeat vaginal infection. If infective cause has been detected, and if you are sexually active, it is important that you get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid sexual contact/intercourse while being on treatment. You can also consider getting repeat swab/smear tests done to rule out persistence of infection/re-infection/resistant infection. Consider requesting for prescription of probiotic to be started (after finishing with your other medications) to restore the normal vaginal flora. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area, and keep the area clean and dry. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
