yeast infection - when is it totally gone?

My question: How do you know when a yeast infection is totally gone?
My context: I used Walgreen's brand 7-day clotrimazole. The occasional slight itchies I get seem to be mostly related to the cream seeping out in the first half of the day. The cream made it worse all along, but for the last ~3 days when I used it at night it didn't make me horribly, unbearably itchy a half hour after insertion like it did for the worst of the infection, which I assumed was the dying yeast fighting back. I guess my question is should anti-fungal creams be causing any itching whatsoever if the infection is cleared up? I've technically used it for 8 days since I was able to squeeze out enough to extend my treatment an extra day. I just don't want to buy another box if I don't HAVE to, but I also don't want to prolong the infection.
