    Good afternoon, Sorry about that. You should do a vaginal swab mcs to confirm if you are having vaginal candidiasis. You need to take some precautions to avoid recurrence of this infection. You need to avoid using antibiotics when not prescribed, you need to avoid wearing heat retaining pant.

    How long have you being applying the cream? You need to give it time to take care of the infection.

    You should be applying the cream if it relieves the itching and you will have the systemic treatment to avoid recurrence after you deliver if you keep having the infection. Also, if your husband is having any similar complaint like itching or having urethral discharge or pain when urinating he should also be treated as it could sometimes be sexually transmitted.
