No one on the forum can answer that question with only the information you’ve given, and probably not even if you add more info. I will say that reoccurring yeast infections can be a sign of a Candida overgrowth, but then again, the infections could go on for years before a Candida overgrowth actually developed, or maybe never.
They gave me an oral antifungal which didn’t kill it, and now I have the topical cream and am doing the Candida Diet and it doesn’t seem to be working either.
If it’s Candida, the topical cream won’t make a difference other than possibly alleviating the symptoms for a short time. Antifungals can’t cure an infestation either, but they can kill some of the Candida, again, alleviating some of the symptoms.
How long have you been on the diet?
