Betadine -- an iodine antifungal solution - is sometimes prescibed by doctors for trichomoniasis or bacterial vaginosis. Some suggest douching with it for a yeast infection, though it's not really the best thing: other medications are.

So, since I'm not sure I know what exactly you were given the Betadine for, unless you have had this particular infection looked at, I'd suggest you see a doctor about this infection, rather than self-medicating.
