    Women who chose to self treat with over the counter preparations should see their doctor if symptoms persist or recur as they may have a different condition (e.g. bacterial vaginosis, dermatitis, lichen sclerosis, genital herpes) or a resistant strain of thrush.

    A vaginal swab is sometimes necessary to confirm diagnosis.
