You can continue to use the miconazole cream on the outside if you need to and also some vagisil maximum strength, on the outside. Diflucan ( fluconazole) takes a day or 2 sometimes to work. If you are still having problems in a week, see the doctor or at least call him/her. It should have cleared by then. Don't gob the cream on, put a small amount on. If you keep that area too wet and you still have some yeast present, it could make them rebloom. Bacterial vaginosis can have the same symptoms as a yeast infection and you could have that instead.
