I had a vaginal yeast infection 2 weeks ago. I used itraconazole 100 mg, 2 pills per day for 2 days. The infection seemed to have disappeared. Also my boyfriend that I have intercourse with used fluconazole 150 mg 1 pill per day for 3 days for protective measures. Now, after 2 weeks, the infection came back again. What should I do? And why it keeps coming back?

It means it was not cured. Do the following-- 1. You maintain high grade of personal hygiene. 2. Do change your undergarments at least 2 times a day 3. Wear cotton underclothes. 4. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids. 5. Keep the area dry. For more details you can consult me.
You must get it checked by a doctor, is it the same yeast infection or any other infection which needs treatment. Also you must use protection during sex.
You are not taking proper dose and it should not be stopped like this.
