Q: I think I have a yeast infection

Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

For yeast infection, antifungals are started for the duration depending on the site of infection.
In yeast infection, I prefer to advise topical antifungals like clotrimazole cream.
In severe cases, oral antifungals like fluconazole are also started.
Keep the affected part clean and dry.
Get your blood sugar levels done.
Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and order tests for you.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps.
Take care.
