First yeast infection: What to do?

Hi!  I'm sure I can look this up online, but I trust this group more!

I think that I have my first ever yeast infection, which makes sense since I've been on antibiotics for a while.

I wouldn't say that I have a bad case, but I would like to get rid of it obviously.  I think I've had it for a while, but thought that it was something else.

Could you tell me what treatments you use, either topically or orally, natural or medication?  I know medications are sold (but are they safe with antiobiotics?) and have seen posts about vinegar, coconut oil, and putting garlic gloves into my vagina overnight.  What tried and true method works for you?  Do I buy the medication and buy something natural, or do natual methods usually work?  I want to get rid of it urgently (bad timing:  new job) but don't want to overdo it with putting products up there and on there and with taking meds.

If I do the garlic clove thing, do I take the skin off, getting the clove to the point where I would cut it up to put it into food?  With the vinegar, do I make sure some gets into my actual vagina, or is it more in the vulva?  Is there a preferred type of vinegar?  Do I put coconut oil (which I already have; I use it for everything) into my vagina?

Thank you!
