Rare irritations inside vaginal area

I had a yeast infection and cervical ulcer. I was cured by my doctor, she prescribed me 4 tablets of fluconazole to use every 72 hrs and vaginal cream.
I had completed my treatment and just 1 tablet was left to use. She told me I could have protected sex and also i’d be cured if I use the last tablet
I had sex, and also ate the last dose of fluconazole the day after I had sex

Its been 2 days but i steel feel a bit irritation and irregularity in vaginal discharge
Should I go back to using anti fungal medications?
Isnt it harmful to use them without prescription?

Thank you for your query.

For your information, treatment of yeast infection should be prescribed to both you and your partner. This is to avoid re-infection during sexual intercourse. However, if the yeast infection only detected in woman, it is less likely to be transmitted to the male partner.

It is advisable for you to consult your doctor for further treatment or continuation of anti-fungal medications. Discuss with your doctors or our online practitioners for accurate management.

We hope this answer helped you. Thank you.
