Yeast Infection (Candida confirmed!)

Previously I have went for a check up on my vaginal health. Doctor confirmed on the growth of candida in my vagina. Take Candid V1 before (but seem like it didn’t do anything?) But after visiting the doctor, I was given Gynaflor and Fukole. It did manage to get rid of everything for a month. Until it came back… It’s not burning or itchy at all. Just that it’s disturbing to have the infection down there. Do advise on the best prescription. Thank you!
