Vaginal candidiasis can be difficult to eradicate and chances of recurrence after treatment is definitely possible.

In such cases, repeating the treatment or switching to oral antifungal therapy may be indicated.

If your symptoms do not improve consult your doctor, who can confirm if your symptoms are due to recurrance and provide you the proper advice or prescribe you other effective medications.

I hope this helps.
