Brief Answer:
Topical antifungals

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and noted your concern.

For yeast infection, you may use a topical antifungal e.g either Clotrimazole 1% cream or ketoconazole2% cream. They are OTC products.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
