Bad Anal Yeast

I have a really bad anal yeast infection and I can't seem to get it to go away. I was on antibiotics for a while, and so I am taking lots of probiotics now to help my body recover, but I don't know how much more I can take of this... It's bad enough that I am literally crying and screaming every time I have to take a dump.

I had this once before after a long session of antibiotics and my doctor was finally able to get it to go away by having me use a boric acid suppository for a couple weeks. Unfortunately I am in a foreign country and I am not being able to get the same things that I could before. I now have something called a "Clotrimazole Thrush Treatment" but because of the language barrier I'm not sure if it works for anal yeast as well as vaginal yeast. Does anyone know about this?

Also I know that it is normally inserted vaginally, but it is normally supposed to get rid of vaginal yeast. Does anyone know if I should insert it anally to get rid of anal yeast? Any advice would be appreciated.
