    The reason an antibiotic didn't work "so well" is that a yeast infection is a fungal infection, not a bacterial infection. Thus, an antibiotic is useless the treat this.

    Are you even certain this is a yeast infection or are you guessing? "Thinking" you have one and then "trying" an antibiotic isn't working so well for you, is it.

    If a true yeast infection, there are effective over the counter treatments for this.

    Get an accurate diagnosis first and then you can get the accurate treatment for whatever is the cause of your symptoms.

    If you do have a yeast infection, which usually causes itching and sometimes a strong smelling discharge, it's treatable. You can start by using an over the counter yeast infection cream. Make sure you take the whole course, and also wash your clothes in hot water (with bleach for those clothes that can handle it) or you run the risk of reinfecting yourself.
