A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that you may be suffering from a fungal yeast infection. We recommend that you purchase a 7 day over the counter yeast infection medication and take it as directed to see if this will clear your infection effectively. If this does not help, you will need to see your doctor for further evaluation and treatment.
