CLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM CAN KILL THE YEAST THAT CAUSES THE INFECTION.  Source http://www.rxlist.com/gyne-lotrimin-drug/medication-guide.htm

·         To cure a vaginal yeast infection, it is necessary to eliminate the yeast cells. Clotrimazole Vaginal Cream can kill the yeast that cause vaginal yeast infections and can relieve the associated itching and burning.
·         HOW TO USE
·         WARNING: DO NOT TAKE BY MOUTH OR USE IN THE EYES.
·         Directions:
·         Fill the applicator with the cream and then insert one applicatorful of cream into the vagina every day, preferably at bedtime. Dispose of applicator after use.
·         Repeat this procedure with a new applicator for 7 consecutive days. For relief of external vulvar itching, squeeze a small amount of cream onto your finger and gently spread the cream onto the irritated area of the vulva. Use once or twice a day for up to 7 days as needed to relieve external vulvar itching.
THE CREAM SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR VULV AR ITCHING DUE TO CAUSES OTHER THAN A YEAST INFECTION.
Important: In order to kill the yeast completely, you must useCLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM the full seven days, as instructed above, even if your symptoms are relieved sooner.
To load the applicator
Remove cap from tube of cream. Screw open end of applicator onto tube of cream. Gently squeeze opposite end of tube, forcing cream into barrel of applicator. The plunger will stop moving outward when the barrel contains the proper amount of cream. When the barrel is full, unscrew applicator from tube. After each use, replace cap and roll up the tube from the bottom.
To insert the vaginal cream:
Lie on your back with your knees bent. Insert the open end of the filled applicator into the vagina as deeply as it will go comfortably. Holding the applicator in place with thumb and middle finger, press the plunger until it stops. Withdraw the applicator.
IMPORTANT: Insert one applicatorful of CLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM each day for the full 7 days.
CLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM usually starts to relieve itching and other symptoms within 3 days. If you do not improve in 3 days or if you do not get well in 7 days, you may have a condition other than a vaginal yeast infection. Discontinue use of the product and consult your do ctor. Also, if symptomsrecur within a 2 month period, contact your doctor.
During your period, continue to use CLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM. Its action is not affected by menstruation. However, DO NOT USE TAMPONS WHILE THE MEDICINE IS IN USE: sanitary napkins may be used instead.
CLOTRIMAZOLE VAGINAL CREAM may reduce the effectiveness of some methods of birth control. Condoms, diaphragms, or vaginal spermicides may be so affected.

You should also contact your doctor if your vaginal itching persists for more than one week or if your itching occurs along with the following symptoms:
·         ulcers or blisters on the vulva
·         pain or tenderness in the genital area
·         genital redness or swelling
·         trouble urinating
·         an unusual vaginal discharge
·         discomfort during sexual intercourse

What to expect during your appointment
  • Your doctor will ask you about your symptoms, including how severe they are and how long they have lasted. They may ask you about your sexual activities as well. They’ll also likely need to perform a pelvic examination. During a pelvic examination, your doctor will visually inspect the vulva and may use a speculum to see inside the vagina. They may press down on your abdomen while inserting a gloved finger into your vagina. This allows them to check the reproductive organs for any abnormalities.
  • Your doctor may also collect a sample of skin tissue from your vulva or a sample of your discharge for analysis. Your doctor might perform blood or urine tests as well.
Medical treatment for vaginal itching
Once your doctor finds the underlying cause of your vaginal itching, they’ll recommend treatment options. The specific course of treatment required would depend on the particular condition that’s causing the problem:
·         Your doctor can treat vaginal yeast infections with antifungal medications. These come in various forms, including creams, ointments, or pills. They’re available by prescription or over the counter. However, if your doctor has never diagnosed you with a yeast infection, make sure to speak with your doctor before taking any over-the-counter medication.
·         Doctors often treat BV with antibiotics. These may come as pills you take orally or as creams you insert into your vagina. Regardless of the type of treatment you use, it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions and to complete the full round of medication.
·         You can treat STDs with antibiotics, antivirals, or antiparasitics. You’ll need to take your medications regularly and avoid sexual intercourse until your infection or disease clears.
·         Menopause-related itching may be treated with estrogen cream, tablets, or a vaginal ring insert.
Other types of vaginal itching and irritation often clear on their own. In the meantime, you can apply steroid creams or lotions to reduce inflammation and ease discomfort. However, you should limit how much you use them because they can also lead to chronic irritation and itching if you overuse them.
Home remedies for vaginal itching
You can prevent most causes of vaginal itching through good hygiene and lifestyle habits. There are several steps you can take at home to prevent vaginal irritation and infection:
·         Use warm water and a gentle cleanser to wash your genital area.
·         Avoid scented soaps, lotions, and bubble baths.
·         Avoid using feminine hygiene products, such as sprays and douches.
·         Change out of wet or damp clothing right after swimming or exercising.
·         Wear cotton underwear and change your underwear every day.
·         Eat yogurt with live cultures to reduce the chance of getting yeast infections.
·         Use condoms during sexual intercourse.
·         Always wipe from front to back after having a bowel movement.
