There was a time when I had frequent infections due to poor health and issues with my then-partner . . . these infections can be so emotionally influenced! It's exhausting too!
For future reference, I have used garlic cloves with good results. But be careful not to nick the garlic clove too much or it can cause some burning / discomfort from the juices. I've also tried yogurt topically and it's INCREDIBLY soothing, though it's never actually cleared up a yeast infection for me before.
And speaking of yogurt--since you're on the antibiotics, are you taking steps to moderate the side effects? Antibiotics kill all the good flora, too, so you're more likely to have a return of the yeasties! Daily yogurt will help replenish the good bacteria, and nettle and oat straw infusion are good for your gut! You could also take probiotic capsules for a while to help replenish lost intestinal flora, but it's even better to get it from yogurt and other fermented foods! Here's a very detailed letter from Susun about dealing with Candida (there are some surprising pieces of info here):

Also, in case it happens again, I really really love the Vitanica Yeast Arrest Suppositories. They have never failed to clear up a yeast infection for me, AND they soothe at the same time as they medicate.
Hope everything clears up quickly without relapse!

Also, in general washes and douches are a mixed bag, because they can flush out valuable flora and disrupt the bodies natural lubrication (and dry lady parts are not good!). Still, if it's all you've got it can work!
