So I recently about 2 weeks ago had a yeast infection hadn't had one in years and I went to the doc last week my yeast infection was already clearing up but I wanted the doc to confirm I was okay she did my pap smear and said I was still irritated red and had some discharge so she prescribed me the fluconazole just to kill what was left and I just took it I just wanna make sure the redness will go away I read it takes 2 weeks for skin to heal after a yeast infection is just red from the side of my vigina outside walls if that makes any sense will it go away I have no pain no itch just still red from there and It's annoying Yeast infection are the worst haven't had one in years like this they take forever to heal

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Redness can resolve later than clearing but discharge indicates there is still some left. No harm in taking some antifungals and adapting good coital and toilet habits and see if it helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
