Hi,

Welcome to the forum and I am glad to help you out. The possibility of getting a yeast growth is significantly lessened with the use of the clotrimazole as clotrimazole kills the fungus rapidly. However, it makes sense to get a culture done if there's no response of the use of clotrimazole.Please consult a gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

Thanks doctor
Thank you! that was helpful. I think i may go see a gyno like you suggested if the problem keeps lingering. I guess the clotrimazole must have sort of worked on the yeast. thanks!

Yeast Infection
I took Clotrimazole 3 day cream for a yeast infection the next morning the itching, and burning went away, however when my body was discharging the cream, the result was a green discharge. My question is should I continue to use the product regardless of the coloring of the discharge or should I stop it completely?
