New to group

I'm so glad I found this group! I'm a 49 year old female with a history of hormonal problems, and yeast infections. Nothing too serious until a year ago. Last march, I developed a yeast infection that turned into a nightmare! I was literally disabled because of the severe itch that lasted 3 weeks. I hardly slept, lived in the bathtub, and on perscription creams and was on diflucan for two weeks straight. After the 2nd week, they told me that my yeast infection was cleared up and tests showed I had no infections at all. But the itch was worse. Finally went to a dermatologist who diagnosed me with vulvodynia. Gave me 300 mg of nerountin and it worked immediatel! Here is the problem.
I have anothr yeast infection. Went to doc, they put me on diflucan. I took one sat. another on Monday. It's thursday and the itch is worse. I stared the nerountin two nights ago and not help. I even doubled the dose. I"m back to that insane itch, again bedridden, and not sure what to do! I went to the doc on Mon and he said I still had some yeast. (Maybe this is why the neurontin is not working?) Not I have a doc's appointment in Fishkill (an hour from my house) at 8 am tomorrow morning to see a specialist. I don't think I'll be able to make the drive!

I need help PLEASE...Any advise? My doc here doesn't know much about my condition but works with me. any advise you can give me would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm dry raw and itchy now. Was wondering if I should put vaseline on, but was told that's bad. The one thing that did help a little bit was benadry. I took two tablets and slept for about 1 1/2 hours. Sorry for rambling, I'm just in a lot of pain, and scared..
