Diva Cup and yeast infections

About a week and a half or so before my last cycle I had to take penicillin for strep throat. What ended up happening is that the antibiotics gave me a yeast infection that started the same day as my period. I've been using my diva cup as usual and attempting to treat the infection at the same time but an absolutely horrid smell as latched onto the cup. I'm sure it's because of the infection but I can't get it to go away. I've soaked it in boiling water multiple times but the smell is as strong as ever.

Has anyone else ever had this problem? Did you get the smell to go away? I'd almost be willing to by a new cup even though I've had this one for only 9 months or so just to be free from it.

Any suggestions?
