Hi!
If you were my patient, I would really try to do a pelvic exam so that I could test your discharge for yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and even STIs if you have ever had any type of sexual contact.  The medication you were given treats yeast, but would not solve the problem if it is caused by bacteria.  A foreign body such as a bit of toilet tissue lodged in the vagina could cause similar symptoms, which is another reason that I would want to do an internal exam if at all possible--if not we would have to settle for a swab and I would do a wet mount and send it for bacterial culture.
Hope this helps!
