YI with period?

Hello! I've got an uncomfortable question for you all. I developed a yeast infection about three days ago, and have been treating for the past two with garlic. My period just came this morning, but the YI hasn't really cleared up; everything is still itchy/abraded, and hurts like the dickens. The garlic was doing an all right job taking care of the itch, but what should I do now that I've got my period?

Also, should I avoid using tampons? I hate pads, and I began using Instead cups again last month, but I have a feeling they'd be too uncomfortable to put in and take in while my poor beaver is in its present condition. Is there something topical I could put on the area to make it feel less battered?
