Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    natural way to treat mouth yeast infection?
    do you have recomendations how to treat mouth yeast infection with natural remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest two things. First, use a little hydrogen peroxide, swish it around in your mouth. Then use your tooth brush on your tounge and gums (before rinsing) then rinse with water. This will break up and pentrate the worst of the coating.

      The second part is aimed more at the heart of the issue. Why did you get the yeast infection in the first place. As mentioned in one of the posts above - this is an issue with your digestive system. You should take some probiotics. These are basicly the good bacteria that are in your stomache. They help your body battle back to overcome the yeast. (These types of infections are very common in conjunction with or after antibiotic usage.) For the probiotic the best thing is a powder as opposed to a pill. If you swallow a pill it all goes to your stomahce. With a powder it begins working in your mouth and down your entire digestive track as opposed to starting with your stomache. (which is what you want if the issue is in your mouth.) You want to get it from a good health food store as opposed to the supermarket or a gnc type place.

  2. QUESTION:
    Natural way to treat yeast infection (skin) in dogs?
    I groomed a dog the other day at my all natural spa and the dog had some yeast infection sores down her back. I bathed her in a tea tree oil shampoo but I was wondering if you can put tea tree oil directly on the sores to kill the infection or is there another solution without putting the dog on antibiotics at the vet?

    • ANSWER:

      might help

      Tea tree oil on its own should help to kill the itchiness and then look at something like bitter yuck if it is an area that gets licked. Aloe gel might be the best option- cooling and soothing

      In the USA Naturvet offers a money back if you aren't happy- you have nothing to lose :)

  3. QUESTION:
    Using yogurt to treat yeast infections?
    I've been reading up on natural ways to treat yeast infections, and read about eating and putting plain yogurt on your vagina. I had my doctor confirm that this is safe to do and does work. However, I read online that it has to be sugar free and plain, when I went to a whole foods store to buy some the clerk said there was no such thing as a sugar free yogurt, so I bought plain yogurt and it said on the container that it had the active live cultures.

    With sugar in the yogurt, will it only aid the yeast in growing if I use it down there even though there are cultures in it that are supposed to fight it off?

    Also, I really dislike the taste of it, so I added a little powder from my protein shake mix and it tastes amazing. Will doing that make the cultures not work?
    The Whole Foods clerk said there was no such thing as a sugar free yogurt though.

  4. QUESTION:
    is there a natural way to treat thrush or yeast infection ?
    (for the vagina) without creams or medicines - juss totally natural ?

    • ANSWER:
      You can drink apple cider vinegar water as a means of preventing yeast infections as well as to help get rid of any infection you currently have. Killing an infection takes a lot out of the body, so drinking apple cider vinegar water will help a lot. Vinegar is a natural diuretic and you should be drinking six to eight cups of water a day. If you add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to that water, you will be helping to kill of the infection and also to clear out your system.

  5. QUESTION:
    how to treat yeast infections?
    what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection ? antibiotics make me sick

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics actually cause yeast infections, not cure them. They cause an imbalance of the bacteria in your vagina by killing off the good as well as the targeted bad bacteria.

      Personally, I eat yogurt every day to help prevent them (antibiotics are only one cause). But when I actually have one there are some OTCs, like Monistat that work really well.

  6. QUESTION:
    Treatment for yeast infection in male?
    I had a testicular yeast infection just a couple of days ago. My testicle itched like crazy and i found blisters or rashes under my foreskin and on the testicle. It's been 5 days since i had it and i don't see it getting any better. Now the end of my foreskin is swelling and dry and i can't pull it over my testicle because the swelling made the hole small. Besides all the rash, blister, and itching, there is something gooey comming out of the testicle, not from where the pee comes out but it's like emitted by my own testicle, it's gooey and i don't know how to explain it and it's so dirty i don't feel comfortable at all. I stop wearing underwear because the tightness makes it more uncomfortable so now my stick is just hanging loose in my pant, It feels more comfortable that way with less itch and irritation. I don't know how long this is going to last and how long it will take to get better if i just leave it. During the day it's not so bad but when i'm trying to sleep my testicle it itches and stings like crazy so i can't ever sleep comfortably and when i pee it burns and it feels soar when i'm erected. I've been searching online for Natural solution but some i just can't do. Some tells me to eat plain garlic and onion, i can't do that. Is there any natural way of treating yeast infection in male? What should i avoid in food and what should i look for? Is it ok to drink sport drink later Powerade or gaterade? I am really concern about this because it never happen to me before and i don't know what to expect from it. I'm only 15, can't make no doctor appointment and it's embarrassing buying yeast infection cream at the store and i don't like chemical on my body so i want to make things as Natural as possible.

    I had eczema on my inner thighs, and then I went to this one really gross house for a birthday party, the next morning, I wake up, and I have this huge rash all over my inner thighs and my first thought was eczema because I already had eczema, and we found out it was a yeast infection, and my doctor thinks it's cause of that house, it's been just about two months now and it's almost gone, but it's still wanting to come back and my mom doesn't seem to give a care, she won't call the doctor's or anything, she'll just tell me to stop wining about it.

  9. QUESTION:
    How do I treat a yeast diaper infection on my 2 year old?
    I have not taken her to the daughter. It started out small and has been there for around five days. I have determine it is a yeast diaper infection because it very much looks like this :

    http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T081401.asp

    I have always used desitin for diaper rashes which by the way have been few and far between with my daughter. I also use vaseline every time after I whipe her and change her to create barrier. And we have always used 100% cotton cloth diapers so its def not a diaper irritation.

    I assume after determining it is not a regular diaper rash that the desitin would not help it.

    Is there something else I can buy or natural treatment? And has anyone delt with a yeast infection diaper rash before?

    Thank you in advance for sharing exp and help!

    • ANSWER:
      We had a terrible yeast rash here despite careful diaper habits, too. The usual creams won't do anything. Ask the pharmacist to steer you towards a good generic anti-fungal cream. You don't need a prescription; you don't need a brand name. It should sort itself out fairly quickly after that.

  10. QUESTION:
    need to treat raw skin from yeast infection?
    i just got over a HORRIBLE yeast infection. I had tried all sorts of creams and pills to get rid of it. I finally got rid of it the natural way via yougurt on a tampon. I have no yeast infection anymore (no burning, itching, swelling, or redness) the only thing is that the inside of my vaginal walls especially right near the opening are VERY raw and sore. this is because i had sex 2 times during my yeast infection. I understand that my yeast infection is gone. I only had sex before this treatment. But i know that my opening is still sore because it hurts when i insert the tampon. i need to get rid of this for valentines day. i have read forums about this from other women and they said that it takes at least a month of no sex to let the skin heal. but i need to valentines day. i did not spend 60 dollars at victorias secret for nothing. i dont want to ask my doctor how i can treat it cuz shes just gonna give me a medicinal cream and i know they dont work. i need a natural remedy to heal this skin. maybe unscented lotion? but you always have to be careful about what you stick up there. thats why im asking on here. anyone know what will help the skin heal that is safe to stick up there and is natural? you will be my lifesaver

    • ANSWER:
      Do not use lotion down there. It will mess up your PH balance down there. Uhm.....to heal the skin you could use some monistat cream. Don't put it inside you, but on the outside. That really takes care to heal skin and soothe symptoms such as raw skin and irritation.

      Also...there's something called VaginexII that's anti-itch cream. But its VERY soothing. And might help with your rawness and irritation.

      I don't really understand why you HAVE to have sex on valentine's day. But i mean, for your own sake you really shouldn't. It can actually irritate it down there some more and you actually get another yeast infection. A lot of woman talk about that happening and then you have to go through it all over again.
      But good luck.

  11. QUESTION:
    Treating a vaginal yeast infection with Garlic?
    Ever since I have joined the military 2 years ago, I have been suffering from reoccurring yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. I have taken Diflucan (Fluconazole) and Metronidazole (flagyl) and every other medicine you can think of with no positive results. Anybody in the military knows that they don't really try and get to the root of the problem, they will just give you the medicine and send you on your merry way. I read an article on using a clove of garlic and vaginally inserting it to cure yeast infections. Has anybody ever personally tried it? What are some other natural remedies that I can use to treat a yeast infection so that I won't have to continually go back to medical?
    I think what the problem stems from is the fact that when I work, I'm sweating and slaving for hours and all the moisture down there isn't good. I only wear cotton underwear and I can change my underwear anywhere for 2-4 times a day because it's so hot. I work on helicopters and so I don't have the leisure of sitting all day in an air conditioned room.
    Monika, I use to be in the medical field prior to joining the military and it is a fact that garlic is a somewhat natural antibiotic. Recall how Louis Pasteur used it in his laboratory studies when coming up with an effective way of killing of bacteria and certain fungi. Allicin, one main compound in garlic, effectively fights off infection. I just want to know if anybody has ever tried it and the results they've gotten back from it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard of eating garlic to help cure the infection! Natural yogurt with live cultures is great. Insert 2tbl spoons in the evening and leave in all night. By morning the good bacteria should have killed a far amount of the bad bacteria. You can also eat natural yogurt, no less than 300grams a day. This could take 7 to 14 days to clear up. Once it has cleared keep eating the yogurt for a couple of weeks, even just 3 servings a week, to stop the infection reoccuring. Try wearing cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing also. This helps to air the area.
      I hope this has helped you.

  12. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    i have a question about yeast infection. is it curable?

    and are any of these are true and safe to use to get rid of it?

    Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infection
    Vaginal yeast infection can either be cured orally or by vaginal insertion. Most of these home remedies have been tried and tested for their efficacy. You can usually cure yourself in the privacy of your home without the need to visit your gynecologist.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil is a known natural antifungal. Pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil on a tampon and insert into vagina. Do this morning and night. A couple of days should be sufficient.

    Garlic
    Make a paste of garlic pods and apply to skin around the vagina. It may burn a bit, but is very effective. This paste can be used for yeast infection in other parts of the body too. Another way to use garlic for the cure of vaginal yeast infection is to cut a few garlic pods fine and wrap it in a cheesecloth. Insert into vagina for about 20 minutes

    • ANSWER:
      For a yeast infection cure you have no further to look than your physician, your pharmacy, or your fridge. All three of these sources can hold just what you need for a great yeast infection cure.

      If we take our sources one by one, your physician has the ability to give you prescription medications which can potentially a yeast infection cure for you. For instance, the prescription drug Diflucan uses only one dosage and is supposed to be a particularly effective yeast infection cure.

      Other prescription yeast infection cures include Terazol and Gynazole, both of which are vaginal creams, and also Mycostatin which comes in the form of vaginal tablets or vaginal suppositories.

      All of these have side effects which you should be aware of when taking them, as do the next set of potential yeast infection cure, the over-the-counter variety.

      Up until the very early part of the twenty first century it is shameful to admit but there were no over the counter remedies available as a yeast infection cure. On the contrary, if a woman had a yeast infection she had to visit her doctor to get proper medical attention and to receive a yeast infection cure.

      So although the offerings in this department are still woefully meager, they are nonetheless there and available to anyone who doesn’t wish to advertise to the world, or their doctor, that they have a yeast infection.

      Although it is best if you get a proper checkup for your yeast infection it can’t be denied that with the availability of these creams a new world has opened up, and women can now treat such a simple problem without any attendant fuss or hoopla.

      All the available over-the-counter yeast infection cures work along the same principles as the prescription yeast infection cure, and most of them come in cream form, or suppository form. The more familiar brands include Monistat, Femstat, and Vagistat.

      Moving on next to the natural cures and remedies section, you will find that the number of alternative yeast infection cure methods are too numerous to do more than give an honorable mention here.

      To that end only a few of the well known natural yeast infection cure methods have been mentioned. To begin with we’ll start off with everyone’s favorite the yogurt yeast infection cure. It can be messy in the extreme to have to apply yogurt to the vagina, but it turns out that it is well worth the effort.

      Another natural yeast infection cure that is well known and used is that of the garlic cure. Being one of the wonder herbs of the world, garlic is good for many an ailment and is a particularly effective yeast infection cure, especially when used as a suppository.

      Next up you have apple cider vinegar, cranberries, oregano, cinnamon, curd, Tea Tree oil, lemon, lime, and Vitamin C. All of these can be used as an effective yeast infection cure and all of them work.

  13. QUESTION:
    how to cure a yeast infection in my dog?
    My dog has a yeast infection. I had an old Golden Retriever a few years back who developed a yeast infection and the vet treated it with antibiotics plus flushing out the ears and then putting drops in them. It went away for only a short time. His health went down hill fast and he was in great pain from hip displacia. I have recently read up on a type of fungus/yeast infection called Candida Albicans. It has all the same symptoms. Part of the cure is to give an enzyme that is found in yogurt. It said to give the dog Acidophilus to build up the natural enzymes in the stomach where this infection starts. The smell from the dogs body and ears are horrible. He gnaws at his feet and skin all the time. I have read from some of you that the ear canal and the stomach are not connected but you still went on to say give the dog a non grain food. This fungus/yeast infection works its way from the stomach and makes its way to most parts of the body, especially the ears.

    So am trying the ear rinse of one part white vinegar to four parts water. twice a day, one Acidophilus a day and maybe some yogurt once a week. It can't hurt. I also give him a children s antihistamine once a day for the itching. We will see how much better (if any) this will be then what the Vet prescribed for my other dog.

    • ANSWER:
      your doing the right thing by giving them yogurt and the Acidophilus because yeast infections come from grains and also the stomach.
      You have read correctly as that is how the ears become infected is from the stomach and the yeast that builds up.
      YOu may give your dog more yogurt along with the Acidophilus.

    no no, actually i think it may be a Bacterial vaginosis infection! I am pretty sure it is! Change the question to that please!
    Ella x is also a pathetic moron.
    no kendall, u may have exactly the same answer as other people but ur were bloody rude! There is no excuse for that...it doesn't take a lot of effort to be polite does it?! Chav.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are really smelly down there, something is definitely wrong! You have to tell your mother and go see someone. It's important. It's not embarrassing. Stuff like that happens, and what if it affects your ability to have kids later?

  15. QUESTION:
    how do i get my doctor to see beyond blood tests?
    as i said on another question i suspect i have pcos,my doctor has run blood tests for these,and blood sugar-diabetes,thyroid etc.
    as far as my doctor is concerned because blood tests dont show anythinng up i am fine.
    basiclly my syptoms dont exist as far as she is concerned !my syptoms are menstual differculties,very light,with pms,weightgain,skin rashes ,yeast infections,tiredness,sugar cravings, spots.
    have treated myself with herbal remedies,but my weightgain ,worrys me and i feel if she gave me a diagnosis she would be able to prescribe metformin to bring my insulin levels down so i can lose weight easier.have a family history with diabetes,aunt with type 1 and father with type 2 although he wasnt overweight until they started him on insulin,so i am worried i may be headed the same way.should i turn to natural practioners instead ?
    thanks for any advice :)
    also just to say it very differcult to change gp in my area ,all the surgerys are oversubscribed.a friend of mine had terrible trouble changing,and her new isnt much better.i like the surgery im with not the doctor .also no i havent had a three day test what is that ?had an overnight fasting one around 10yrs ago? :)
    i dont eat a lot of sugar,altough i get sugar and carb craving s.i eat a relativaly healthy diet! :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you feel that your doctor is not giving you the proper attention you feel you need, I suggest getting a second opinion. If you like your current doctor and don't want a new one, atleast see a different doctor regarding this issue and then continue to see your regular Dr. when needed.

      My mom was having her own set of issues a couple of years ago. It took her three doctors until she found the one that actually listened to her and didn't think she was making up her symptoms. Turns out she needed surgey.

      Always trust your gut instinct!

  16. QUESTION:
    Mini Poodle with an ear infection.. Any suggestions OTHER THAN A VET?
    I am a vet tech. I just got a Mini Poodle today and found that he's got an yeast ear infection. I'm looking for a NATURAL way to treat/cure his poor ears! I do agree that taking him to the vet is the best, so please don't tell me to take him, because I already know! I honestly don't believe the medication they will give him will fix it, because I had a dog years ago who had chronic ear infections and nothing helped that the vet did!

    I was told of some natural ways to cure yeast-infected ears, but I forgot! Does anyone know of NATURAL ways to treat his ears OTHER THAN TAKING HIM TO THE VET!! Please don't mention vet's because I don't believe that's something vet's can really do, it's a waste of money! I went to school for vet tech, so I'm not uneducated as far as veterinary care for animals!

    It is definitely a YEAST ear infection. The smell, texture, and color of his ear leather confirms.
    i WENT to school to be a vet tech. PAST TENSE. worked in a vet office as a tech for over 1 year. had major health problems that prevented me from working in the veterinary field.

    i don't have my books anymore, thus the reason i have to ask you idiots. look up Florida Institute of Animal Arts. I graduated from the vet course in 2008.
    also, as stated before, I GOT THE DOG TODAY! some old guy owned him and didnt want him anymore, im guessing because of the ear infection as well as the skin problems he has. so dont blame me for something I'M TRYING TO CURE THAT SOME GUY DIDNT WANT TO DEAL WITH!!

    its not that i don't want to spend the money, i have more than enough to spend. i would rather do it holistic and without him getting manhandled by random people that dont know what they are doing to begin with!

    • ANSWER:
      well ms. vet tech ... clearly you did not study up too well in vet tech school because there are no effective ways to treat an ear infection "naturally" ... if it could be done "naturally" your career choice would be obsolete ... the dog needs medication from the vet and you taking the dog from a guy who could not care for the dog only for you to take the dog and not care for the dog, what is the difference ... you have a yahoo answers account ??? and i really have to question your vet tech and dog ownership experience ... my dog swims in the ocean almost daily and does get recurrent ear infections ... two squishes of Surolan (http://www.universalpetmeds.ca/medications/Surolan/Drops) and the dog is good as new ... allowed to get out of control the dog is in extreme pain ... you do not take on a new animal that already has medical problems you can not address effectively (yahoo answers is not effectively) ...

  17. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant? (already tried plain yogurt!!)?
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have had a constant yeast infection since close to day one. I was told by my OB that it is normal and that I can get any generic brand to treat it at my local pharmacy. I am particular now that I am pregnant and wanted to go the natural way and eat yogurt to make it go away, it started to but now I have been eating yogurt for the past 4 months, on a daily basis, and it still hasn't cleared up!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't eat the yoghurt to clear it up, you have to dip it in a tampon and insert it for a few hours. Drinking cranberry juice is said to be good to. I know it sounds gross but honestly, that's the way it works.

      *Even doctors recommend that you idiot. Never seen embarrassing bodies? The doctors on there even said it's safe and can work as well as over the counter meds.

  18. QUESTION:
    Is it safe for me to use the recommended laxatives with the Master Cleanse diet?
    Background: I am 26 years old. As a teenager (age 15 up till age 20), I had a major ordeal with anorexia nervosa, after which I dabbled in laxative-type bulimia. I abused diuretics for the most part, and sometimes laxatives as well. Three years ago I was constipated and took an ex lax and I literally felt like I was dying..my heart weighed a TON and wasn't beating right. For the past five years, however, I have been completely recovered from my eating disorder in the ways of my eating habits. I'm at a healthy weight and I eat more than enough to survive (2500 calories/daily).

    I am looking to use the mastercleanse as an aid to me in: quitting smoking, giving my body a break, and bringing my immune system back up (I have had two ear infections, which also caused a yeast infection [due to antibiotics treating the ear infection] in the last month). My concern about doing the mastercleanse is that I do NOT (and cannot) risk my health again if the laxatives in this regime would be harmful to me. I've looked and looked again at the mastercleanse recommendations, and it appears the laxatives are an INTEGRAL part of the process - not optional.

    My questions are whether:
    a) the laxatives are an ABSOLUTE must (whether forgoing this part of the program would render the MC much less beneficial or not beneficial at all),
    b) it is dangerous for me to take laxatives under such a program given my past,
    and
    c) the fact that the laxatives in this program are "natural" makes a big difference in my peculiar situation.

    Please only respond if you can answer all my questions directly.

    • ANSWER:
      To answer your question, I do not think that you should use laxatives based upon your history. That would just open up some areas that you may not tolerate well. Since you have had addiction/mental illness and bad reactions in the past these are all good reasons not to do this. You can just do the food modification portion of the MC and leave out the laxative part.

      And to throw in a retort to Patrick M...what an utter failure. You did not answer this question, all you did was spout your re-hashed garbage again. She was not asking about the effectiveness or validity but once again you have to stick your UNWANTED opinion in. And the reference to Arizona...you fail again. Those people were not there to detox, it was to alter their mental state. This has been done in the desert southwest by native people for thousands of years. This horrible case was done by a man that had no business doing this and is paying the price for his arrogance. Why do you care what people do to care for themselves? Is it that you don't want them to get scammed? Are you so magnanimous that you care for all humanity? If that is the case then you should start a group to repay everyone that has been scammed. That would be helpful. Not your pathetic rant.

  19. QUESTION:
    period 4 days late, cramps, vomiting, but neg test?
    I had my last period june 23, 2008. I have a normal 29-29 day cycle. My fiance and I are not trying, but not preventing. We are sort of doing natural family planning. So if I was pregnant we would be happy, but if I wasn't that would be okay also. I have been having weird cramps ( not like usual period cramps), but my period is 4 days late. I have had a low grade fever 99.3. I also just treated a yeast infection, so I don't know if that has anything to do with my late period. MY BB's have been sore, but they get that way around the time of my period too. I ended feeling queasy yesterday and actually threw up, which I have not done since i was pregnant with my son travis.I have been constipated also.I have been tired, not anymore stressed than usual. As far as I know I do not have any hormonal problems or illnesses. I really don't know why my period is late. I ovulated around july 7-9. Also my cervix is tightly closed ( more than usual), but not too high, not hard, but not really soft either. I have taken a 4 hpt all negative, starting the 1 st day of my missed period. I cannot go to my obgyn, cause he said to wait and see if I miss my next period or get positive hpt. What is going on with my period? If you have any ideas let me know. ( sorry about the TMI)
    i would like to add also that the cramps feel like little pinches, did any of you get cramps like that in early pregnancy?

    • ANSWER:
      I would say if you have insurance go to an emergency room. This is what happened to me too. I went in complaining of different things and they did several blood tests. I told them I could also be pregnant, so they took a blood test. Blood tests do not lie! They confirmed that I was pregnant, I was 5 weeks along :)

    my dog is in a bad way.?
    Weve been treating her for mange, which worked (castor oil after a bath) has worked wonders. has stopped her scratching n scrating.
    But, shes got other things, hot spots which weve been treating with better diet, garlic tablets (to purify and detoxify her blood) and regular baths.
    Think shes also had a yeast infection and anal gland trouble. Which we've treated with natural yogurt n cider vinegar.
    Am at the end of my tether, just want my dog to get better.
    Any ideas ? !
    Or similar problems ?
    Hi, thanks for answers. We have had her to a vet, spent over £200 with no benefit.Lost faith in them am afraid.
    Holistic treatments have worked so far but wanted advise on treating the hotspots.
    I did lots and lots of research on the net before i treated her so am sure I am not causing the condition to get worse.
    I bought the garlic tablets from a reputable petstore so am sure thats not causing her any harm.

  21. QUESTION:
    I'm going to the doctor soon, but I was wondering if anyone on here had anything to say?
    I've been sick for a while, having lived in a very stressful environment with my boyfriend and his parents. I'm 17 and I just want to be healthy. I feel a lot better now that I'm in foster care and in a much nicer place, but does anyone see any connection between all of these symptoms?

    When I was younger, I used to have alot of bladder and urinary tract infections. Now they've graduated into yeast infections. I think these were being caused by POS (Polycustic Ovarian Syndrome) because the doctor said I had cysts on my ovaries, and he said they were no big deal, but they were causing such bad infections that I've been sick alot and my entire body was so infected that a lymph node under my arm got swollen (quite far from my ovary!). About March, I found out I had the swine flu, and my boyfriend's parents wouldn't take me to the hospital, so I spent about a month in bed, whereas I hardly ate (couldn't cook for myself), could barely open my eyes because I was so fatigued, and the pain in my lower right side hurt severely (believed now to be the cysts). Now I also believe I have ulcers in my intestines (leaky gut syndrome) which may have lead to sepsis. I've had gastric ulcers sine about 7th grade, (I've always lived in highly stressful environments up until now), and now I'm also lactose and glucose intolerant. I also have a sensibility to sugars, caffiene and artificials (all of which I struggle too avoid). About January or Febuary, my boyfriend's parents tried to force me to take birth control pills and bipolar meds (I'm bipolar, and it has been untreated for about 6 years), and all of those pills made me sick so I absolutely refused to take them. I know it's suprising, but not having sex really DOES prevent pregnancy! They never believed it was possible, but I suppose I prved it to them. I used to use tampons, I don't know if that's related, but I'm trying to get everything I can because I believe it's ALL related. I eat very healthfully, exercise and do yoga daily, and meditate, which I all started about 7th grade because I was diagnosed as bipolar, but living between two irresponsible and unpredictable parents, I was never treated. Therefore, I've looked to holistic help and natural ways to help myself. I really don't want to take any sort of medication, but I do want help. I've done as much as I can, and continue to, learning about everything to help myself and better myself. Any advice is welcomed, and thank you for reading. :D

    P.S. Also, I just recently went to see a counselor and I have been diagonsed with (AGAIN) bipolar disorder, borderline personality, post-traumatic stress disorder and hyperglycemia. I'm trying to deal with all of this, but it's crazy. I don't believe any disease should define a person. I'm reading about all of those right now.

    Thanks <3

    • ANSWER:
      I've been in the OBGYN field for 11 years, and I can tell you that the PCOS is not causing your problems. PCOS can cause excessive growth of hair, irregular periods, generally you may be overweight, diabetes, infertility problems, darkening of the skin, and glucose intolerance. The pill will control the ovaries, a good pill is Yaz or Yasmin. It will also help with the PMS and stop you from producing any more cysts. You can always try the NuvaRing, a vaginal ring inerted into the vagina for 3 weeks. It also delivers a very low dose of hormone. Or if you are over weight even by just 5 lbs, losing that 5 lbs can dramatically improve the side effects of PCOS. Also you do need to be on meds sweetie, ALOT of the time the symptoms that you are describing physically can be because of your emotional state. Depression, post trautmatic stress, etc. can cause you to feel like S@IT all the time. So please listen to your doc, call your GYN doc and get yourself back to feeling good. You are too young to have to live that way and suffer. Good luck!

    • ANSWER:


Natural Yeast Infection Cures

Written By: admin - Sep• 03•12

The Candida albicans infection, by its scientific name, is a fungus. It's normal to have a certain amount of it present in our intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genital area. When in normal balance it's harmless. Now when your body's natural balance gets disturbed, this fungus can easily overgrow. Once you have overgrowth, leakage through lesions in the gut membranes into the blood stream is just the next step. Next thing you know you could have to deal with local and yeast systemic infections.

Oil of oregano is also said to be very effective against yeast infection as it contains carvacrol. This oil is easily found in the market and and can be used safely. Oil of oregano can be used topically for home remedies to cure yeast infections and itches or infections of the skin, gums, teeth, and just about any orifice in the body. Exercise care if you use it in the genital region, where it is best mixed with olive oil or coconut oil before application (1 drop per teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil/butter).

Washing the area with diluted apple cider vinegar twice daily will stop the growth of infection. If you have severe itching, one garlic clove can also be added to the mix. Garlic has anti-fungal properties which combats yeast overgrowth.

Another simple yeast infection remedy: Spend 20 minutes a warm bath that has 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar added. A few drops of tea tree oil in the water will also help.

You can either make your own at-home-douche treatment or you can buy one over the counter containing only water and vinegar. If you choose to make the mixture at home you can use a quart of lukewarm water and three tablespoons of cider vinegar. You can use the mixture as a douche one time each day. You do not want to use the mixture more than once a day; otherwise you may experience vaginal dryness and irritation. This remedy should not be used more than a seven day period.

The consumption of water may sound simple but when you consume enough water it will flush the toxins within your body that the yeast fungus feeds on. When you increase your water consumption you increase your chances of curing and keeping your yeast infection at bay for good.

You can also fill a bathtub with water and add one cup of apple cider vinegar, then soak in it for 30 minutes. After a couple of days, the infection should be gone. Eating plain yogurt is also known to help. Be sure to only consume unsweetened yogurt, as sugar will aggravate the situation. Drink a lot of water to help flush the infection from your system. Avoid foods that feed yeast such as white flour.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Natural Yeast Infection Cures Treatments?
    i am taking antibiotics and now i have a yeast infection. I am not happy.is there any way i can get rid of the infection naturally? any tip will be appreciated thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt - there's nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There's argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina - unpleasant, but they are the facts - so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

      Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine - the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning - commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they're a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

      Garlic - not great smelling, but works well as it's a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it's easier to remove.

      Tea tree oil - you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet...no reason to do it specifically then, it's just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

      Gentian violet - this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it's a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that's that...well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

      Another old one is Boric Acid - yes it sounds scary, but it's safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

  2. QUESTION:
    is there any natural cures for a yeast infection?
    I am 7 weeks pregnant, and I think I've come down with a yeast infection due to the changing of hormones. Until I see my doctor is there anything I can do for it that would not put my baby in jeopardy?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat lots of yogurt. I had a very painful yeast infection at about 37 weeks pregnant. I put ice packs on the outside of my underwear and ate a half gallon of yogurt (yeah it was attractive). Once I talked to my ob, she assured me the monistat cream was safe to use externally.

  3. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know an effective natural yeast infection cure that is free?

    • ANSWER:
      wrap dental floss around a clove of garlic. insert in vagina at night. remove in morning. repeat for three or four days. a bulb of garlic costs approx 66 cents.

  4. QUESTION:
    Is this a natural yeast infection cure?
    I've been having problems down there lately, so I searched online and on a few chat sites, women said a tampon soaked in vinegar does the trick. My mom has heard of it but never tried it but women online said its worked for them. So, I put it in and it's been in for about an hour. Hopefully this one will work. Has anyone else tried this?

    Please don't say go to a doctor, we don't have any health insurance.
    The yogurt defiantly did not work well. It just made the infection worst. :-(

    • ANSWER:
      You'll be lucky if you don't give yourself an even worse infection that way (yeast OR BV). I appreciate not having insurance, but OTC store brand remedies can be found for -9 dollars at Walmart and Target.

      Just because the "climate" of the vagina is < 4.5 pH when it's healthy doesn't mean that putting vinegar on there will do anything other than irritate already inflamed tissues.

      Edit: If yogurt made it worse, I would suggest you might not actually have a yeast infection.Seriously ~ Call these folks, or look up "womens clinic" in the phone book. An untreated/mistreated infection can cause what seem to be unrelated problems for years (worse cramps, PMS, etc)

  6. QUESTION:
    How can I cure my vaginal yeast infection in a natural way at home?
    I've been suffering from yeast infections for years now and they have now become chronic. The drugs don't help me anymore. The internet is full of different kinds of advice for natural cures, I have already tried some of them with no success. I was wondering are there really effective natural methods for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there are a lot of natural remedies, but it is not important which one do you take or apply, but when and how much of them you apply. Right timing and dosage are the key to success. There is not one natural treatment that will solve your problem. You always have to combine several treatments, the point is to kill the infection from inside, not outside.
      Why don't you check some simple methods that have already helped many yeast infection sufferers?

  7. QUESTION:

I was just wondering if any one has there own cures that are natural and what you have done and how long it took to get rid of.
    and to add this is not my frist yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      Here's an awesome website from Michigan State University that will tell you everything you could possibly need to know about yeast infections and do-it-yourself yeast-infection treatments, including yogurt: http://www.msu.edu/~eisthen/yeast/yourself.html

      Anyway, the yogurt method can become a bit messy and time-consuming. I usually opt for the 3-day cream treatments (they've always done the trick), though I sympathize with your suspicion of synthetic medicines. I personally would never take an internal medication for a yeast infection, either. The over-the-counter topical treatments are far less intrusive and have far fewer unnecessary extra chemicals than any oral treatment.

  13. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection Natural Cure! Will This Work? ?
    Anyone who perceives something about it or even a little please come out and share your views.

    I wanted to know how i possibly could assist my friend in her fight against vaginal yeast infection. I know it sounds embarassing, however if i left her i would have left her all alone and knowing that i would instead want to give my best since we know each other from college.

    She is suffering from itching and all kinds of burning stuff while the infection never seems to go. It's very painful!! Thus i recently came across this website during my research period, it seems to be quite good, promising and the product researchers (seems to be their own website i.e couple researchers) have come out very handy during our discussions over emails with them. Their response has been astonishing to me and so i believe the claim i.e their product will cure it within 12 hours shortly after usage, seems legitimate!! I have provided the link below and i would want to know if anybody has gone through their products covered within the book "NATURAL CURE FOR YEAST INFECTION WITH 12 HOURS", if so then do LET ME KNOW PLEASE!!! Thanking in advance...

    • ANSWER:
      It is important to consider that Candida species are frequently part of the human body's normal oral and intestinal flora. So it will never just go away.

      Treatment with antibiotics can lead to eliminating the yeast's natural competitors for resources, and increase the severity of the condition.

      In clinical settings, candidiasis is commonly treated with antimycotics—the antifungal drugs commonly used to treat candidiasis are topical clotrimazole, topical nystatin, fluconazole, and topical ketoconazole.

  14. QUESTION:
    How to Cure Yeast Infection using Natural Remedies?
    I have a bad yeast infection and I dont want to use pills or OTC Drugs. Please help?

    • ANSWER:
      This is going to sound extremely gross, but relief is instantaneous. First, go get yourself a massengil douche, preferably unmedicated. Also get a small container of plain unsweetened yogurt. It must be plain with nothing in it or you will be sorry. Open the douche and empty out the fluid. Cut the top off the douche bottle with a sharp serrated knife, being careful not to remove the threading where the applicator will screw on. Use a funnel and put the yogurt in the douche bottle. You will have to wiggle it, etc. to get it in there. Put the cap on the douche bottle. Before you are ready to go to bed, place a clean, good sized, preferably plush towel under yourself. Get into bed without any underwear, you will not leave the bed again til morning. Tilt the douche bottle down so the yogurt settles near the nozzle. Squeeze gently until you see that the yogurt is beginning to seep through the openings in the nozzle. Insert and apply. Try to apply all the yogurt with one firm squeeze. Let the yogurt fall out naturally through the night. In the morning shower and clean yourself normally, do not attempt to remove the yogurt your body will get rid of it on its own.

      Typical Yeast Infection Symptoms

      Symptoms of Yeast Infection, Candida, Thrush

      •Painful Sex or Sexual dysfunction •Vaginal Odor •Premature Aging •Vaginal Discharge •Arthritis •Depression •Chronic Rashes •Tiredness or Fatigue •Poor Memory •Irritability •Joint Pain or Swelling •PMS •Feeling Rundown •Digestive pain •Muscle Aches •Short attention span •Hand pain •Hip and Knee Pain •Headaches •Acne •Respiratory Infections •Memory loss •Lowered Immune System •Lowered Self Esteem •Skin problems •Impotence •Gas •Hand pain •Depression •White Vaginal Discharge •Hypoglycemia •Menstrual Pain •Urinary disorders •Skin Lesion•Shortness of Breath •Food allergies •Learning and Memory problems

      Yeast Infection Symptoms Change

      Strange Yeast infection symptoms occur.They vary from person to person. And with one person the symptoms can change from day to day. These symptoms may vary based on the person's general health or genetic makeup. This is the one of the reasons that there are so many different symptoms.

      75% of the population, it has been estimated, suffer from some sort of yeast infection at some time in their life.

      To treat yeast infection you have to treat what caused the infection in the first place. The root cause. Everyone knows what a flare up of vaginal yeast infection or diaper rash is. You get some medicine and it clears up, right?

      But did you REALLY cure the infection or did you just treat the symptoms?

      Chronic Yeast Infection

      You treated the symptoms in most cases and the yeast infection is still there. Unless you treated the root cause of the yeast infection you have not solved the problem.

      IT'S STILL THERE???

      YES IT IS!!!

      There will still be a low level of the yeast cells present... just waiting until conditions are right for another Flare-up.

      Most people don't know what a chronic yeast infection is or the damage it can do. Many people become so accustomed to their symptoms they think their symptoms are simply just part of growing older or part of their lives.

      The Good News (finally!)
      It is a simple fact that yeast, thrush, and Candida can be cured permanently. Once and for all completely eliminated. You can treat the root cause of yeast infection. And you can do this easily and safely in the privacy of your home. Even if your doctor may have told you differently!

      Hard to believe, isn’t it?

      Since natural cures can not be patented by drug companies. These natural cures are not profitable for them. They do not spend money researching them and do not promote them. Drug companies are required by law to make a profit, and are not required by law to make drugs that help people. This shocking fact is not common knowledge.

      The Big, Fat Lie

      Think about it for a minute and decide your self....... Western medicine, Television, our doctors, magazines....every where we look....conditions us to believe that repeated doses of this drug or that antibiotic or this medication can cure all our ills.

      "You will feel better as long as you keep taking the drug". The drug companies want you to keep using their products. Over and over again. Do you really think they want to CURE YOU ....Or keep you coming back for more?

      Many of the treatments they offer are Band-Aids, masking symptoms, while the real problem is never addressed. Think VIOXX to treat arthritis. Premarin to treat menopausal symptoms. Insulin might be wonderful.....but it treats high blood sugar not the underlying cause of diabetes!!!!

      Did you Know there is something called "The Edmonton Protocol" that transplants Islet cells in the liver. It has been sucessfull in curing diabetes. There has been NO DRUG COMPANY FUNDING.

      It is CRAZY!!!

      Drugs, Drugs....DRUGS, they simply do not treat the root cause of the yeast infection. They mask the symptoms for a while. The yeast becomes Drug Resistant to the treatment and the infection comes back even worse than before, more pain, more suffering and more drugs.

      ...Well having thought about it for a minute.. What do you think?

      1.....This is a good and rational plan for my health.

      2.....THIS IS CRAZY!

      The Simple Truth

      Yeast infections of all kinds, have plagued humans throughout history. Long before the drug companies came along, people had yeast infections and had been treating them. Some how in the past people have been cured. That's what I set out to discover.

      How did people treat yeast infections before Drug Companies?

      I set out to discover a simple, safe but very effective, treatment for yeast infection that is All-Natural. Not only did I want to treat the yeast infection.I wanted to eliminate the root cause.

      Of course I didn't know if it was possible to discover this. But I set to work anyway and I can truthfully report I have "REDISCOVERED" those SECRETS.

      I can promise you that you can have complete relief from your yeast infection in a few hours. For just few pennies and using no Drugs In an All-Natural way.

      The Rest of My Story

      Dear Friend

      As I said earlier I was a former yeast infection sufferer. I want to tell you a truthful, if not slightly embarrassing, story. I was plagued with yeast infections for years. Occasional flare ups, trips to the doctor, prescription medications, hours of misery.

      I would get burning, itching, vaginal discharge, painful urination and pain during sexual intercourse. Sound familiar?

      My recurring yeast infection came back with a torturous vengeance. That was about three years ago. I was in extreme discomfort and visited my doctor. She confirmed what I already knew, but she told me this time it was different.

      "This Is a Serious Yeast Infection" my doctor said. The serious form of yeast infection occurs when the yeast actually turns into a mold form and sends out tentacles called hyphae, or roots, into the skin. Not only is it difficult to treat.

      My doctor said "It was Impossible to Cure". Further, she said that all the previous treatments we’d tried, merely controlled the symptoms, the infamous Band-Aid therapy. Now it was a serious, very serious, situation.

      Frustrated and with limited options. I turned to my husband Robert, who is also a medical researcher, for help. Together we explored every known treatment for yeast infection.

      Robert and I spent thousands of dollars and purchased every internet remedy we could find.
      We collected hundreds of medical documents about yeast infections.
      We spoke to infectious disease experts, researched yeast infections, Candida, thrush, and mysterious rashes.
      I "lived" in the medical library.
      Finally

  18. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural cures for yeast infections?
    Or is there anything you can do to stop a mild one from turning into a full blown one? I appreciate any informative, mature answers. :)

    • ANSWER:
      yes, and it does not hurt even if it sounds like it

      take a big garlic clove (organic if you can)and peel it. run a thread through it and knot the ens like threading a needle. Insert into vagina (you can also put a few slits in it to increase strength) remove via the string..insert new one ever day or two

      some people insert yogurt research on google but I used and preferred the garlic method that I learned from Dr Richard Schulze, maker of the save your life videos

      I would try the garlic method and follow it up with yogurt internally and externally (plain organic yogurt not flavored internally) be sure it says it has active cultures on the container

  19. QUESTION:
    natural cures for a yeast infection?
    I just wondering if any one has ever tried natural remidies for getting rid of an yeast infection and did they work??

    I developed a yeast infection on wednesday and took the monistat but it seems as though when i take that stuff im more itchy then when i dont have it in my system. And its only really bad in the morning and through out the day it gets better till at night when i take the medication and in the morning. This has really bumbed me out I have not had one for over a year now. and i get to see my husband next weekend and i want this gone!!

    So can anyone Help??

    • ANSWER:
      I always used plain unsweetened yogurt and filled a syringe with it and put it up in that area (know what I mean LOL) and I got immediate relief, and the infection was cleared up in a few days. It's safer and cheaper than those messy creams or that pill they give you. It just balances the natural bacteria that the yeast overgrow in the vagina. Another thing, taking a good probiotic complex with acidophilus, thermophilus and bifidophilus, as well as fructooligosaccrides (they feed the ophilus's LOL) can help clear it up, and prevent future infections from occurring.

    • ANSWER:
      If you're suffering from a chronic infection then you need to see a doctor.

  23. QUESTION:
    What is a natural way of curing a yeast infection?
    Hiya peoples!
    Is there a natural way of curing a yeast infection in the genital area? The idea of shoving a pill up there...*shudder*

    I heard somewhere that you could eat yogurt or something, but I'm not sure.
    As in, without the pill round thing.

    • ANSWER:
      Natural live yoghurt can be used in two ways to deal with thrush: eating it and/or inserting it into your vagina. The key is not the yoghurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yoghurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level and keeps yeast under control.

      Eating yoghurt may help keep yeast levels low throughout the body, but particularly in the stomach and intestines. Because candida in the bowel can easily make its way to the vulva and vagina, keeping your digestive system clear of thrush may help prevent vaginal thrush.

      Inserting yoghurt into your vagina may also help restore your vaginal pH balance, but there is less scientific support for this method. If you want to give it a try, put one teaspoon of yoghurt in an applicator, a plastic syringe or on a tampon, and insert it high into your vagina. Repeat this every night for a week. It is important that you use only unsweetened, plain, live yoghurt.

      The active ingredient in this treatment, lactobacillus acidophilus, is also available at health food stores as a supplement on its own.

      Hope this is useful. For more ideas, check out this link. Good luck.

  24. QUESTION:
    Natural Cures for yeast infections?
    Does anyone know of any good Natural cures for a yeast infection and if so how would i go about doing so?

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt applied directly to the vagina is the best and cheapest cure. You can put some plain yogurt in a tampon applicator and stick in the freezer. The cold helps with the itching and irritation. The yogurt attacks the yeast. You can also douche with hydrogen peroxide and water. You'd have to eat a hell of a lot of yogurt for it to reach your vagina.

    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      cranberry juice to drink and plain natural yoghurt inside the labia

  27. QUESTION:
    Natural cures for a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      You CAN eat yogurt to help cure it, BUT you have to get the plain UNSWEETENED kind. With that, avoid sugar, yeast, and refined foods (flour). Also, avoid taking antibiotics/birth-control pills.

      And, drink LOTS of WATER! When you drink a lot of water, it flushes out the sugar that the yeast feeds on.

      Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing near the crotch, and avoid sitting in a wet bathing suit for long periods of time! Don't wear pantyhose and wear cotton undies(easier to breathe through).

      Okay, so a cure that a lot of people use is buying tampons and PLAIN UNSWEETENED yogurt. Dip a tampon into the yogurt and insert the tampon. Leave it in for about an hour.
      Take out.
      Continue this once or twice a day for about 2-3 days or until needed.

    • ANSWER:

  29. QUESTION:
    is there a all natural way to cure a yeast infection? i heard about AZO has anyone used it and does it work?
    what the best way to cure a yeast infection all natural with no chemicals

    • ANSWER:
      L-lysine capsules. Insert one in the vagina at night, (make sure that they are capsules and not pills) as far up as you can get it. Also, take them by mouth four times a day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime, for three days. You can use this every night, but my infections always responded well to this form of treatment and were gone almost overnight. Candida lives on sugar. Don't feed your body any sugar and you should be able to heal this up in one or two days.

      L-lysine is an amino acid and helps to balance the system and change it from acid to alkaline through its binding properties with calcium which equalizes acid in the body. Acid can translate to "sugar" in the body. You can also douche with Apple Cider vinegar (1 part vinegar to 6 parts warm water) to help with the healing process.

      "L-lysine is a safe, nontoxic, natural substance when used within recommended amounts." http://vitamins.ultimatefatburner.com/l-lysine-review.html

      Hope this helps!

You take the chewable three times a day, and the caplet twice a day. Even since I started taking it, I haven't had any problems at all whatsoever. I don't know anything about Alka Seltzer, but definitely go for Acidophilus.

    Does anyone know a natural cure for a female yeast infection?
    I am tired of using monostat, because I feel that it has to be bad for me in some way, and I want a natural cure.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to avoid all yeast and sugar products ......... sugar will literally feed the yeast overgrowth allowing it to flourish......... ditch the alcohol and sodas and diet sodas too if you drink any .....and pump up your intake of fresh filtered water to at least 2 - 3 litres per day ..... antiobiotics, especially broad - spectrum antiobiotics will also kill the helpful bacteria which you need for a healthy gut ........ supplement with a good quality probiotic to rebalance gut flora ......... eat more alkaline forming foods such as leafy and green vegies, cold water fresh fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting, organic nuts and seeds such as almonds and brazil nuts........ all these foods are rich in magnesium and will thus encourage the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy aiding in digestion and effective elimination ........ eat organic brown rice and quinoa (prounounced keen ~ wah) as they are both a rich source of the B complex of vitamins and will provide you with the carbs you need for sustained energy and the quinoa is also rich in calcium and iron .......... Avoid sugars such as honey, molasses, fructose, maltose, lactose and fruit juices ...... avoid artificial sweetners and foods containing brewer's yeast - ie - alcohol such as beer, wine, brandy, whiskey, rum, ciders and root beer.... avoid baker's yeast ie ~ breads and rolls and pastries .... avoid mushrooms ... avoid fruits and vegies with any sign of mold growth on them .... avoid fermented beverages and condiments including mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled vegies and pickles, salad dressings (use lemon and olive oil instead), soy sauce and vinegar .... avoid all types of hard cheeses which are a pretty good source of mold.... avoid processed and smoked meats and fish, including hot dogs, sausages, luncheon meats etc....... these meats are processed with sugar, spices, yeast and other preservatives .... avoid canned bottled or frozen fruit and vegie juices cos they have loads of sugar and are commonly made from overripened or damaged produce; generally the skin of the fruit contains surface mold and rotten spots, which are pulverised into the juice... avoid dried fruits.... avoid coffee & tea as much as you can as caffeine will aggravate yeast overgrowth..................... you don't need to use medications to kill a yeast overgrowth ..... simply eliminate their food source and they will disappear on their own ...... if you normalise the bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract you will feel much better and in most cases won't need drugs ♥

    My question is;
    Do you know of any ALL NATURAL remedies known to treat and cure yeast infections in dogs?

    You are so horribly mistaken, it pains me to even read your uneducated response.
    There are tons of all natural remedies to treat this condition. Not to mention thousands of success stories on the internet.
    I am asking for other peoples PERSONAL experience and knowledge about this condition. I do not believe in pumping my animal full of harmful and toxic medications. You are exactly the type of closed minded person who I did not want replying to my question.

    • ANSWER:
      Lack of answers must tell you there are no natural home remedies and your dog needs to be treated by a vet.

      ADD:
      That's exactly what they are...STORIES - NOT fact. I can Google Big Foot on the internet - doesn't make it true! If it were that simple, you would have gotten a lot more responses! Call your vet and ask - the phone call is FREE. And how do you even know it's a yeast infection? Are you a vet? Looks like it's YOU that needs the education!

      Yeast infection is a FUNGUS and is killed with FUNGICIDE - NOT yogurt! ROLFLMAO

    http://www.natural-cure-for-yeast-infection.com/?hop=kbane

    That's where I found the e-book...
    Did anyone buy this book? Did the suggestions actually work?

    • ANSWER:
      I didn't buy it buddy and i can't check your link but the book that helped me enormously was called "Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook" ~ Revised 2nd Edition by jeanne Marie Martin with Zoltan P.Rona, M.D... fabulous reading there for you.

      Natural antifungals that will go a long way to resolving candida albicans overgrowth are ~

      Oil of Oregano ~ antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and antiparasitic ..... it has strong antioxidant and antiflammatory effects and is quite effective in eliminating Candida ....... not regular oregano but a wild form (wild mountain oregano, Origanum vulgare species) ..... your local health food store may be able to help you with this one... Oil of Oregano has no side effects and oregano is compatible with any other natural remedy or prescription drug....... the active compounds in Oil of Oregano also act as free radical scavengers thus prevent further tissue damage while encouraging healing.

      Grapefruit Seed Extract ~ Go to your local health food store and ask the resident naturopath his/her advice on Grapefruit seed extract.. they don't usually charge for off the cuff advice and are more than willing to share their knowledge ..... Grapefruit seed extract is a multipurpose (broad spectrum) compound that is currently being used in humans and animals alike to safely fight many types of internal and external infections caused from parasites (single and multi-celled), viruses, bacteria and fungi.

      Grapefruit seed extracts biggest benefit is due to it's multipurpose (broad spectrum) effect. It is effective even if the causes of the infections are known, unknown or misdiagnosed. By eliminating a wide range of dangerous pathogens grapefruit seed extract actually enhances the immune system.

      Freshly crushed cloves of garlic mixed throughout your green vegies and lentils or brown rice, beans, salads etc....... will also help enormously in eradicating parasites and fungus overgrowth..... garlic arre a powerfull natural antibiotic, antiparasitic, antifungal, antibacterial.

      Ask at the health food store about other natural antifungals such as Colloidal Silver, Powerded Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, Olive leaf extract too.......... ;0)

      And, of course, complete and total avoidance of any food or drink that contains yeast or sugar ......... fanatical label reading or simply don't eat from a package and prepare fresh fruit, vegies, rices, beans, lentils, some lean meats, organic nuts and seeds yourself ..... and drinking plenty of fresh filtered water .... hydrating yourself properly ..... some people find success by also eliminating natural sugars such as fruits and raw honey...... that's the final route i had to go ..... eliminating all fruit sugars ... even the low sugar ones like pears and strawberries ..... and raw honey .....;0)

    Are there any good and effective natural cures/ treatments for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Natural yoghurt

  41. QUESTION:
    what is a natural way to cure yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I always have ups n downs with my yeast infection and am still combating this myself. But I find avoiding sugary/carbohydrate filled food helps to reduce yeast infection. Reduce only, not virtual elimination. Then, I'm also taking garlic pills (1 pills after each meal). The reason I'm very interested with natural ways of combating yeast infection is because I've been using clotrimazole (creams, pills n inserted creams) for 5 years n wish to stop this unnatural medication. Besides, I don't know if it could have a negative side effect if I use this for too long. No doubt it clears it in 1-2 days but it recurs again anyway. So it gets expensive. Also, I plan to have baby 1 day n am not comfortable using these medications then. So, I'm still looking for the best natural remedy. I know that yogurt and cow's milk don't work for me. In fact they encourage more yeast attack. My yeast infection keeps recurring cos I'm unable to avoid sugary or carbohydrate foods. Also, my immune system isn't as good since I was a child. I'm the kind of person who'll have flu 4 times a year. I do indulge in some chocolates n ice-creams once in awhile cos I love to eat junk food. So, asking me to totally eliminate them is not feasible for me. I heard that eating butter can help. I did try eating the Walkers brand pure butter cookies (30% butter) n it didn't worsen my yeast infection. It didn't make it better either. So, at least there's something tasty that I can eat without worsening it. I tried the cheaper butter cookies (10% butter) that are higher in sugar content, but my yeast infection worsened into clumpy yellow cheesy substance. So, I'm stuck with the expensive butter cookies. I think changing panties twice a day helps. Also, powders made of corn powder doesn't work for me. Use regular baby talc instead, they help me to keep dry down there without worsening the itch. No sweet drinks. Lemon juice doesn't work for me. Douching with iodine doesn't work for me. Bifidus, lactobifidus or acidophilus doesn't help me. I think it made it worse. What I do when I wana reduce the yeast is cut sugary/carbohydrate filled food/drinks. When it's gone, I'll treat myself with sugary snacks and then it comes back. Then, I'll cut sugar/carbo again. Yeah, it's a vicious cycle. Sometimes, I over indulge, and it's back to clotrimazole again cos the natural remedy isn't effective when the discharge is clumpy cheesy. I don't use birth control pills, only condoms. I do cardio exercise 1 hr a week as I find myself getting yeast attacks more easily if I don't exercise. Somehow, potato chips are Ok with me. It doesn't worsen it. Of course, it doesn't make it better either. Seeing the doc is expensive n it still doesn't work. I already realised they also don't have the ultimate solution. I use Prolin (pH balanced 3.5, soap-free) feminine wash to wash my vagina. It's the only 1 I can use down there. I tried Dove, Sebamed and several expensive famous feminine washes before and they all don't work for me. Drink lots of plain water.

  42. QUESTION:
    Are there Natural Cure for Yeast Infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes live yogurt cultures. EAT YOGURT basically. Because you already have one there is one other thing. Buy plain yogurt, this is gross kinda, and rub it on your area. I know I know, sounds bad, heard it works. If you have recurring infections buy acidophillas (sp??) pills in refer section of health food store and take them.

    Sarah Summer's Yeast Infection Cure – Really Work?
    Hey
    I read today about Sarah Summer's Yeast Infection Cure and wonder if one of you bought her book and can tell me if the methods inside Sarah Summer's guide really work? I'm looking for a natural cure for yeast infection and I will really appreciate it if someone that bought and tried Sarah Summer's Yeast Infection Cure will tell me what does she thinks about it.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hey

      I bought Sarah Summer's yeast infection cure book last year and found this kind of treatment to be very helpful for me.

      Sarah Summer's yeast infection book focuses on the power of alternative medicine to cure yeast infections. It somewhat veers away from the usual traditional treatment methods and employs the usage of natural remedies instead.

      The trick here is that the natural remedies primarily attack the yeast bacteria that cause the infection, and not just the symptoms of the infection itself. Moreover, Sarah Summer's system also promises to end the cycle of recurring yeast infections, which would also spare everyone from spending way too much on medical bills.

      I really liked that the book doesn't provide a general formula to cure yeast infections because it wouldn't work. People have different body pathologies, and there are different factors to take into consideration for each of their yeast infections. Summer's yeast infection cure book takes the infections case by case. The treatment provides you with the possible causes of the infection. After finding your cause, you get on with the treatment and permanently cure your Candidiasis.

      For me Sarah Summer's yeast infection cure book was very helpful and I really liked that it's all natural treatment without dangerous drugs or stuff like that.
      With the 60 days money back guarantee that comes with this book I believe that it may be a good idea to check Sarah Summer's yeast infection treatment before wasting a lot of money on other treatments that you may find useless.

      You can also use the link below to get about 25% discount for Sarah Summer's yeast infection cure book including all the bonuses and the money back guarantee.

    I am looking for natural cures and prevenatives. No medications.

    • ANSWER:
      acidophilus (spelling might be wrong) it's actually a bacteria that helps to replenish your normal flora so it can fight the yeast infection. Cranberry Juice helps, just because it helps to make the area a deadly pH for yeast... but there's aways vagisil to help with the itching and burning while you wait... but the natural way will take longer than the MD way and it's not always guaranteed to work the first time... the key is prevention.

      Even then, this is not really considered a cure. A person can eat a ton of yogurt and still have a yeast infection. The best thing to do is to get to a doctor as soon as possible. They can properly diagnose you and give you a prescription for some antibiotics which kills the bacteria causing the infection. Good luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    natural cures for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Yogurt. Lots of it.

      To ease the horribly irritatingness of it... clean yourself well, dry yourself even better (use a hairdryer on cool for like 5 minutes - seriously!), grab a big glob of vasaline (a good 1/2-cup worth at least), and slather it on. Wear a pad to make sure the greasyness doesn't go on your clothes.

      Yeast thrives in moist conditions. The hairdryer makes it as dry as you can possibly get a place that is naturally moist. The vasaline makes a protective barrier that does not allow any moisture in. It feels really gross, but I swear it works.

  47. QUESTION:
    Is there any natural remedies to cure a male yeast infection?

      Dawn ( I love foreskins if you didn't notice) X X X

  48. QUESTION:
    how to cure yeast infection by medical or natural remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      Try Vagisil or go to your local pharmacy and go to the pharmacist and ask for a Yeast Infection pill or go get a prescription form your doctor

  49. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to cure a yeast infection?
    And how can I be feeling my best?
    I got it from taking baths too much...

    • ANSWER:
      Assuming you are talking about vaginal yeast infection, you could try Natural LIVE yogurt.The key is not the yogurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yogurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level. The yogurt needs to be introduced into the vagina with a tampon or syringe (minus the needle!)

      Failing that, an anti-yeast preparation like Canesten would be a rational choice. If it does not clear up then you must see your GP so he can take a swab.

  50. QUESTION:
    what are some all natural cures for a yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Eat sugar free yogurt twice a day for a few days. You should see some improvement.

      2. Insert plain, sugar free yogurt into the vagina before bed. It helps to balance the chemical acidity in your tissues and helps to eliminate the bad yeast cells.

      3. Douche every few days with a mixture of plain vinegar and water to help realign the acidity levels.

      4. Drink lots of water and take a good multivitamin every day.

      5. Try to keep sugar intake to a minimum, as sugar "feeds" yeast and helps it grow.

      6. Drink a few glasses of sugar free cranberry juice every day to help avoid the urinary tract infection that usually accompanies yeast infections.

      7. Try eating a low carb diet while you are recovering from the infection, as carbs (breads in particular) break down into sugars that, again, help feed yeasts in the body.


Natural Yeast Cures

Written By: admin - Sep• 03•12

5% of women are in the unfortunate position of their yeast infection becoming worse after treatment. If you're one of these women you're now suffering from what is known as Chronic yeast infections. Explained below are the reasons why your fungal infection is worse after using an anti Candida treatment.

Resistant yeast

One of the reasons why your vaginal Candida infection has been made worse by the anti fungal treatment is the yeast has become resistant to the active ingredients in the cream or suppository. If you have used the treatment before the yeast will already know how to mutate to defend itself. Antibiotics use is the most common way of creating a stronger strain of yeast. Antibiotics are now the biggest cause of yeast infections because they do more than kill the infection they were intended for.

Antibiotics are good at killing bacteria, but this means they also kill your body's friendly, beneficial bacteria which are your own natural defense against fungus like the mutated Candida yeast. Without your friendly bacteria protecting your vagina, and the anti fungal OTC treatment upsetting the bacterial balance further the yeast has an easy time re-infecting you. And when it does it comes back stronger, and it is ready to defend itself against the next lot of treatment.

You could have an intestinal yeast infection

Chronic yeast infections can be a symptom of an intestinal yeast infection. Intestinal yeast infections will start off by giving you symptoms that effect your digestive process. These include bloating and acid indigestion. Once the intestinal Candida overgrowth gets worse you will experience symptoms that effect your whole body, and these include symptoms like fatigue, foggy brain and aching muscles and joints.
Intestinal Candida infections can be caused bya

Antibiotics use
Poor diet high in sugar and lacking nutrition
A health condition such as diabetes
A weakened immune system

If you suspect that you're suffering from intestinal Candida overgrowth then your health will benefit from an anti Candida protocol. This will attack the Candida from every angle, and not just kill fungus like an anti fungal drug will. When you use a drug to kill the fungal overgrowth you just create a better environment in your intestines for the fungus to re-infect you.

You have another vaginal infection

On rare occasions, women will self diagnose themselves, and get the diagnosis wrong. This means that they are treating another vaginal, bacterial infection with an OTC yeast cure. This will just ease the symptoms of the real infection, and when the treatment stops the symptoms of the real infection come back worse. Using an OTC yeast infection treatment on another vaginal infection can in fact cause a yeast infection. This is because the Candida that is living harmlessly in your vagina will mutate when you're applying the anti fungal cream or suppositories.

Seeing your doctor

As soon as your yeast infection returns you should see your doctor. If you have self diagnosed your infection your doctor can make sure you do actually have a yeast infection. If you have been treating another infection of your vagina you risk permanent damage to your kidneys and/or your reproductive organs if the real infection isn't treated correctly and in time.

Natural cure for yeast infections

Once you have a correct diagnosis, and you know you're suffering from recurrent yeast infections you then have 2 choices: You can use a stronger conventional anti fungal treatment; or you can use a natural yeast cure that will provide your body with everything it needs to rid your system of the Candida yeast.

Natural yeast cures willa

Strengthen your immune system
Starve the infection causing Candida
Kill the Candida
Encourage the re-growth of your friendly bacteria
Give you your good health back

Although you will be going against what you doctor advises, your body will thank you for using a natural cure instead of more anti fungal drugs.

      some people insert yogurt research on google but I used and preferred the garlic method that I learned from Dr Richard Schulze, maker of the save your life videos

    I am 7 weeks pregnant, and I think I've come down with a yeast infection due to the changing of hormones. Until I see my doctor is there anything I can do for it that would not put my baby in jeopardy?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat lots of yogurt. I had a very painful yeast infection at about 37 weeks pregnant. I put ice packs on the outside of my underwear and ate a half gallon of yogurt (yeah it was attractive). Once I talked to my ob, she assured me the monistat cream was safe to use externally.

  6. QUESTION:

    women who have been through this please help

    • ANSWER:
      Acidophilus actually does work. It is in pill form, and you can get it in chewable-form or in caplets. I've taken both, and personally I like the chewable-form better. You take the chewable three times a day, and the caplet twice a day. Even since I started taking it, I haven't had any problems at all whatsoever. I don't know anything about Alka Seltzer, but definitely go for Acidophilus.

  7. QUESTION:
    yeast infections...natural cures and more?
    OK i have been using the Yogurt remidy for curing my yeast infection. I started last night. and today its still here. i was just wondering how long does it take with the Yogurt to get rid of the imfection. i dont want to use monistat becuase i have read that its not good for you. I was just wondering if any one has there own cures that are natural and what you have done and how long it took to get rid of.
    and to add this is not my frist yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      Here's an awesome website from Michigan State University that will tell you everything you could possibly need to know about yeast infections and do-it-yourself yeast-infection treatments, including yogurt: http://www.msu.edu/~eisthen/yeast/yourself.html

      Anyway, the yogurt method can become a bit messy and time-consuming. I usually opt for the 3-day cream treatments (they've always done the trick), though I sympathize with your suspicion of synthetic medicines. I personally would never take an internal medication for a yeast infection, either. The over-the-counter topical treatments are far less intrusive and have far fewer unnecessary extra chemicals than any oral treatment.

  8. QUESTION:
    How can I cure my vaginal yeast infection in a natural way at home?
    I've been suffering from yeast infections for years now and they have now become chronic. The drugs don't help me anymore. The internet is full of different kinds of advice for natural cures, I have already tried some of them with no success. I was wondering are there really effective natural methods for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, there are a lot of natural remedies, but it is not important which one do you take or apply, but when and how much of them you apply. Right timing and dosage are the key to success. There is not one natural treatment that will solve your problem. You always have to combine several treatments, the point is to kill the infection from inside, not outside.
      Why don't you check some simple methods that have already helped many yeast infection sufferers?

  9. QUESTION:
    Natural Cures for yeast infections?
    Does anyone know of any good Natural cures for a yeast infection and if so how would i go about doing so?

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt applied directly to the vagina is the best and cheapest cure. You can put some plain yogurt in a tampon applicator and stick in the freezer. The cold helps with the itching and irritation. The yogurt attacks the yeast. You can also douche with hydrogen peroxide and water. You'd have to eat a hell of a lot of yogurt for it to reach your vagina.

  10. QUESTION:
    Are there any good and effective natural cures/ treatments for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Natural yoghurt

  11. QUESTION:
    Natural Yeast Infection Cures Treatments?
    i am taking antibiotics and now i have a yeast infection. I am not happy.is there any way i can get rid of the infection naturally? any tip will be appreciated thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt - there's nothing in Greek yoghurt that will help, the reason pro-biotic yoghurt helps is because it contains lactobacillus acidophilus, a bacterium that creates hydrogen peroxide that kills yeast. There's argument about whether eating it helps as it goes through digestive system and not via the vagina, but I know when I feel ill my vaginal health is effected and fact is bacteria from your anus will linger round your vagina - unpleasant, but they are the facts - so better it be healthy bacteria! You may prefer to take acidophilus tablets.

      Another edible solution is drinking either cranberry or blueberry juice (or taking cranberry tablets), these help by effecting the pH of your urine - the theory here is that as the urine passes over your vulva it may be of some help in fighting off the yeast beasties, or at least ease some discomfort.

      Plain pro-biotic yoghurt is best applied directly to your genitals, you can plaster it onto your vulva before bed, you can fill a syringe to insert into your vagina, or personally I recommend freezing in ice cube trays as an easy way to insert and cooling too. Do this overnight, wear a CLOTH pad or old underwear to bed then wash with water in the morning - commercial pads are a major cause of such infections so they're a no-no, and obviously anything chemical near your vagina like soap is a no-no.

      Garlic - not great smelling, but works well as it's a natural anti-fungal, you do literally take a garlic clove, peel and insert. Be careful not to score the clove as it may sting, and you may want to tie some clean thread around it so it's easier to remove.

      Tea tree oil - you can insert a few drops into your vagina and around your vulva, but to some women this is too uncomfortable, so instead try having a jug near the toilet to fill with water and add a few drops then wash it over your genitals when you go to the toilet...no reason to do it specifically then, it's just a handy time to do it. Same can be done with a mix of 1 tablespoon potassium sorbate to a cup of water, or 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, or liter of water and 2 tablespoons of white or cidar vinegar, or Juice of half a lemon, or 1 teaspoon vitamin C.

      Gentian violet - this stuff is cool, it turns your snatch purple which is sort of freaky, it's a very old natural anti-fungal, you plaster it onto your genitals and that's that...well, you have to wear old underwear and use old sheets when you sleep as it will stain anything it comes into contact with. Use it once or twice a day for a few days.

      Another old one is Boric Acid - yes it sounds scary, but it's safe, you just load up about 600 mg into a couple of gel capsules then insert them into your vagina where your body heat will desolve the capsules and the boric acid will kill off the yeast.

  12. QUESTION:
    Is there any natural cure for yeast infection?
    I will really like to know if there is a natural cure for yeast infection that really work.

  14. QUESTION:
    what is the best and most natural way to cure a yeast infection?
    I just recently got a yeast infection when my husband took some antibotics and I am looking to find a natural cure for it for both of us.

    • ANSWER:
      The symptoms (you may not experience all of them):
      - white cottage cheese-like discharge
      - some odor
      - dryness (can cause bleeding)

      - itchiness
      - burning urination
      - painful intercourse
      - a feeling of just not being "normal"

  19. QUESTION:
    The book, "Natural Cure for Yeast Infections," by Sarah Summer, do the suggestions work?
    http://www.natural-cure-for-yeast-infection.com/?hop=kbane

    That's where I found the e-book...
    Did anyone buy this book? Did the suggestions actually work?

    • ANSWER:
      I didn't buy it buddy and i can't check your link but the book that helped me enormously was called "Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook" ~ Revised 2nd Edition by jeanne Marie Martin with Zoltan P.Rona, M.D... fabulous reading there for you.

      Natural antifungals that will go a long way to resolving candida albicans overgrowth are ~

      Oil of Oregano ~ antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and antiparasitic ..... it has strong antioxidant and antiflammatory effects and is quite effective in eliminating Candida ....... not regular oregano but a wild form (wild mountain oregano, Origanum vulgare species) ..... your local health food store may be able to help you with this one... Oil of Oregano has no side effects and oregano is compatible with any other natural remedy or prescription drug....... the active compounds in Oil of Oregano also act as free radical scavengers thus prevent further tissue damage while encouraging healing.

      Grapefruit Seed Extract ~ Go to your local health food store and ask the resident naturopath his/her advice on Grapefruit seed extract.. they don't usually charge for off the cuff advice and are more than willing to share their knowledge ..... Grapefruit seed extract is a multipurpose (broad spectrum) compound that is currently being used in humans and animals alike to safely fight many types of internal and external infections caused from parasites (single and multi-celled), viruses, bacteria and fungi.

      Grapefruit seed extracts biggest benefit is due to it's multipurpose (broad spectrum) effect. It is effective even if the causes of the infections are known, unknown or misdiagnosed. By eliminating a wide range of dangerous pathogens grapefruit seed extract actually enhances the immune system.

      Freshly crushed cloves of garlic mixed throughout your green vegies and lentils or brown rice, beans, salads etc....... will also help enormously in eradicating parasites and fungus overgrowth..... garlic arre a powerfull natural antibiotic, antiparasitic, antifungal, antibacterial.

      Ask at the health food store about other natural antifungals such as Colloidal Silver, Powerded Vitamin C with bioflavonoids, Olive leaf extract too.......... ;0)

      And, of course, complete and total avoidance of any food or drink that contains yeast or sugar ......... fanatical label reading or simply don't eat from a package and prepare fresh fruit, vegies, rices, beans, lentils, some lean meats, organic nuts and seeds yourself ..... and drinking plenty of fresh filtered water .... hydrating yourself properly ..... some people find success by also eliminating natural sugars such as fruits and raw honey...... that's the final route i had to go ..... eliminating all fruit sugars ... even the low sugar ones like pears and strawberries ..... and raw honey .....;0)

      peace baby

  20. QUESTION:
    natural cures for a yeast infection?
    I just wondering if any one has ever tried natural remidies for getting rid of an yeast infection and did they work??

    I developed a yeast infection on wednesday and took the monistat but it seems as though when i take that stuff im more itchy then when i dont have it in my system. And its only really bad in the morning and through out the day it gets better till at night when i take the medication and in the morning. This has really bumbed me out I have not had one for over a year now. and i get to see my husband next weekend and i want this gone!!

    So can anyone Help??

    • ANSWER:
      I always used plain unsweetened yogurt and filled a syringe with it and put it up in that area (know what I mean LOL) and I got immediate relief, and the infection was cleared up in a few days. It's safer and cheaper than those messy creams or that pill they give you. It just balances the natural bacteria that the yeast overgrow in the vagina. Another thing, taking a good probiotic complex with acidophilus, thermophilus and bifidophilus, as well as fructooligosaccrides (they feed the ophilus's LOL) can help clear it up, and prevent future infections from occurring.

  21. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know an effective natural yeast infection cure that is free?

      75% of the population, it has been estimated, suffer from some sort of yeast infection at some time in their life.

      To treat yeast infection you have to treat what caused the infection in the first place. The root cause. Everyone knows what a flare up of vaginal yeast infection or diaper rash is. You get some medicine and it clears up, right?

      But did you REALLY cure the infection or did you just treat the symptoms?

      Chronic Yeast Infection

      You treated the symptoms in most cases and the yeast infection is still there. Unless you treated the root cause of the yeast infection you have not solved the problem.

      IT'S STILL THERE???

      YES IT IS!!!

      There will still be a low level of the yeast cells present... just waiting until conditions are right for another Flare-up.

      Most people don't know what a chronic yeast infection is or the damage it can do. Many people become so accustomed to their symptoms they think their symptoms are simply just part of growing older or part of their lives.

      The Good News (finally!)
      It is a simple fact that yeast, thrush, and Candida can be cured permanently. Once and for all completely eliminated. You can treat the root cause of yeast infection. And you can do this easily and safely in the privacy of your home. Even if your doctor may have told you differently!

      Hard to believe, isn’t it?

      Since natural cures can not be patented by drug companies. These natural cures are not profitable for them. They do not spend money researching them and do not promote them. Drug companies are required by law to make a profit, and are not required by law to make drugs that help people. This shocking fact is not common knowledge.

      The Big, Fat Lie

      Think about it for a minute and decide your self....... Western medicine, Television, our doctors, magazines....every where we look....conditions us to believe that repeated doses of this drug or that antibiotic or this medication can cure all our ills.

      "You will feel better as long as you keep taking the drug". The drug companies want you to keep using their products. Over and over again. Do you really think they want to CURE YOU ....Or keep you coming back for more?

      Many of the treatments they offer are Band-Aids, masking symptoms, while the real problem is never addressed. Think VIOXX to treat arthritis. Premarin to treat menopausal symptoms. Insulin might be wonderful.....but it treats high blood sugar not the underlying cause of diabetes!!!!

      Did you Know there is something called "The Edmonton Protocol" that transplants Islet cells in the liver. It has been sucessfull in curing diabetes. There has been NO DRUG COMPANY FUNDING.

      It is CRAZY!!!

      Drugs, Drugs....DRUGS, they simply do not treat the root cause of the yeast infection. They mask the symptoms for a while. The yeast becomes Drug Resistant to the treatment and the infection comes back even worse than before, more pain, more suffering and more drugs.

      ...Well having thought about it for a minute.. What do you think?

      1.....This is a good and rational plan for my health.

      2.....THIS IS CRAZY!

      The Simple Truth

      Yeast infections of all kinds, have plagued humans throughout history. Long before the drug companies came along, people had yeast infections and had been treating them. Some how in the past people have been cured. That's what I set out to discover.

      How did people treat yeast infections before Drug Companies?

      I set out to discover a simple, safe but very effective, treatment for yeast infection that is All-Natural. Not only did I want to treat the yeast infection.I wanted to eliminate the root cause.

      Of course I didn't know if it was possible to discover this. But I set to work anyway and I can truthfully report I have "REDISCOVERED" those SECRETS.

      I can promise you that you can have complete relief from your yeast infection in a few hours. For just few pennies and using no Drugs In an All-Natural way.

      The Rest of My Story

      Dear Friend

      As I said earlier I was a former yeast infection sufferer. I want to tell you a truthful, if not slightly embarrassing, story. I was plagued with yeast infections for years. Occasional flare ups, trips to the doctor, prescription medications, hours of misery.

      I would get burning, itching, vaginal discharge, painful urination and pain during sexual intercourse. Sound familiar?

      My recurring yeast infection came back with a torturous vengeance. That was about three years ago. I was in extreme discomfort and visited my doctor. She confirmed what I already knew, but she told me this time it was different.

      "This Is a Serious Yeast Infection" my doctor said. The serious form of yeast infection occurs when the yeast actually turns into a mold form and sends out tentacles called hyphae, or roots, into the skin. Not only is it difficult to treat.

      My doctor said "It was Impossible to Cure". Further, she said that all the previous treatments we’d tried, merely controlled the symptoms, the infamous Band-Aid therapy. Now it was a serious, very serious, situation.

      Frustrated and with limited options. I turned to my husband Robert, who is also a medical researcher, for help. Together we explored every known treatment for yeast infection.

      Robert and I spent thousands of dollars and purchased every internet remedy we could find.
      We collected hundreds of medical documents about yeast infections.
      We spoke to infectious disease experts, researched yeast infections, Candida, thrush, and mysterious rashes.
      I "lived" in the medical library.
      Finally

  23. QUESTION:
    Natural cures for a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      You CAN eat yogurt to help cure it, BUT you have to get the plain UNSWEETENED kind. With that, avoid sugar, yeast, and refined foods (flour). Also, avoid taking antibiotics/birth-control pills.

      And, drink LOTS of WATER! When you drink a lot of water, it flushes out the sugar that the yeast feeds on.

      Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing near the crotch, and avoid sitting in a wet bathing suit for long periods of time! Don't wear pantyhose and wear cotton undies(easier to breathe through).

      Okay, so a cure that a lot of people use is buying tampons and PLAIN UNSWEETENED yogurt. Dip a tampon into the yogurt and insert the tampon. Leave it in for about an hour.
      Take out.
      Continue this once or twice a day for about 2-3 days or until needed.

  24. QUESTION:
    Is this a natural yeast infection cure?
    I've been having problems down there lately, so I searched online and on a few chat sites, women said a tampon soaked in vinegar does the trick. My mom has heard of it but never tried it but women online said its worked for them. So, I put it in and it's been in for about an hour. Hopefully this one will work. Has anyone else tried this?

    Please don't say go to a doctor, we don't have any health insurance.
    The yogurt defiantly did not work well. It just made the infection worst. :-(

    • ANSWER:
      You'll be lucky if you don't give yourself an even worse infection that way (yeast OR BV). I appreciate not having insurance, but OTC store brand remedies can be found for -9 dollars at Walmart and Target.

      Just because the "climate" of the vagina is < 4.5 pH when it's healthy doesn't mean that putting vinegar on there will do anything other than irritate already inflamed tissues.

      Edit: If yogurt made it worse, I would suggest you might not actually have a yeast infection.Seriously ~ Call these folks, or look up "womens clinic" in the phone book. An untreated/mistreated infection can cause what seem to be unrelated problems for years (worse cramps, PMS, etc)

  25. QUESTION:
    What is a natural way of curing a yeast infection?
    Hiya peoples!
    Is there a natural way of curing a yeast infection in the genital area? The idea of shoving a pill up there...*shudder*

    I heard somewhere that you could eat yogurt or something, but I'm not sure.
    As in, without the pill round thing.

    • ANSWER:
      Natural live yoghurt can be used in two ways to deal with thrush: eating it and/or inserting it into your vagina. The key is not the yoghurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yoghurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level and keeps yeast under control.

      Eating yoghurt may help keep yeast levels low throughout the body, but particularly in the stomach and intestines. Because candida in the bowel can easily make its way to the vulva and vagina, keeping your digestive system clear of thrush may help prevent vaginal thrush.

      Inserting yoghurt into your vagina may also help restore your vaginal pH balance, but there is less scientific support for this method. If you want to give it a try, put one teaspoon of yoghurt in an applicator, a plastic syringe or on a tampon, and insert it high into your vagina. Repeat this every night for a week. It is important that you use only unsweetened, plain, live yoghurt.

      The active ingredient in this treatment, lactobacillus acidophilus, is also available at health food stores as a supplement on its own.

      Hope this is useful. For more ideas, check out this link. Good luck.

    Does anyone know a natural cure for a female yeast infection?
    I am tired of using monostat, because I feel that it has to be bad for me in some way, and I want a natural cure.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to avoid all yeast and sugar products ......... sugar will literally feed the yeast overgrowth allowing it to flourish......... ditch the alcohol and sodas and diet sodas too if you drink any .....and pump up your intake of fresh filtered water to at least 2 - 3 litres per day ..... antiobiotics, especially broad - spectrum antiobiotics will also kill the helpful bacteria which you need for a healthy gut ........ supplement with a good quality probiotic to rebalance gut flora ......... eat more alkaline forming foods such as leafy and green vegies, cold water fresh fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting, organic nuts and seeds such as almonds and brazil nuts........ all these foods are rich in magnesium and will thus encourage the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy aiding in digestion and effective elimination ........ eat organic brown rice and quinoa (prounounced keen ~ wah) as they are both a rich source of the B complex of vitamins and will provide you with the carbs you need for sustained energy and the quinoa is also rich in calcium and iron .......... Avoid sugars such as honey, molasses, fructose, maltose, lactose and fruit juices ...... avoid artificial sweetners and foods containing brewer's yeast - ie - alcohol such as beer, wine, brandy, whiskey, rum, ciders and root beer.... avoid baker's yeast ie ~ breads and rolls and pastries .... avoid mushrooms ... avoid fruits and vegies with any sign of mold growth on them .... avoid fermented beverages and condiments including mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled vegies and pickles, salad dressings (use lemon and olive oil instead), soy sauce and vinegar .... avoid all types of hard cheeses which are a pretty good source of mold.... avoid processed and smoked meats and fish, including hot dogs, sausages, luncheon meats etc....... these meats are processed with sugar, spices, yeast and other preservatives .... avoid canned bottled or frozen fruit and vegie juices cos they have loads of sugar and are commonly made from overripened or damaged produce; generally the skin of the fruit contains surface mold and rotten spots, which are pulverised into the juice... avoid dried fruits.... avoid coffee & tea as much as you can as caffeine will aggravate yeast overgrowth..................... you don't need to use medications to kill a yeast overgrowth ..... simply eliminate their food source and they will disappear on their own ...... if you normalise the bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract you will feel much better and in most cases won't need drugs ♥

  32. QUESTION:
    How to Cure Yeast Infection using Natural Remedies?
    I have a bad yeast infection and I dont want to use pills or OTC Drugs. Please help?

    • ANSWER:
      This is going to sound extremely gross, but relief is instantaneous. First, go get yourself a massengil douche, preferably unmedicated. Also get a small container of plain unsweetened yogurt. It must be plain with nothing in it or you will be sorry. Open the douche and empty out the fluid. Cut the top off the douche bottle with a sharp serrated knife, being careful not to remove the threading where the applicator will screw on. Use a funnel and put the yogurt in the douche bottle. You will have to wiggle it, etc. to get it in there. Put the cap on the douche bottle. Before you are ready to go to bed, place a clean, good sized, preferably plush towel under yourself. Get into bed without any underwear, you will not leave the bed again til morning. Tilt the douche bottle down so the yogurt settles near the nozzle. Squeeze gently until you see that the yogurt is beginning to seep through the openings in the nozzle. Insert and apply. Try to apply all the yogurt with one firm squeeze. Let the yogurt fall out naturally through the night. In the morning shower and clean yourself normally, do not attempt to remove the yogurt your body will get rid of it on its own.

    Yeast Infection Natural Cure! Will This Work? ?
    Anyone who perceives something about it or even a little please come out and share your views.

    I wanted to know how i possibly could assist my friend in her fight against vaginal yeast infection. I know it sounds embarassing, however if i left her i would have left her all alone and knowing that i would instead want to give my best since we know each other from college.

    She is suffering from itching and all kinds of burning stuff while the infection never seems to go. It's very painful!! Thus i recently came across this website during my research period, it seems to be quite good, promising and the product researchers (seems to be their own website i.e couple researchers) have come out very handy during our discussions over emails with them. Their response has been astonishing to me and so i believe the claim i.e their product will cure it within 12 hours shortly after usage, seems legitimate!! I have provided the link below and i would want to know if anybody has gone through their products covered within the book "NATURAL CURE FOR YEAST INFECTION WITH 12 HOURS", if so then do LET ME KNOW PLEASE!!! Thanking in advance...

    • ANSWER:
      It is important to consider that Candida species are frequently part of the human body's normal oral and intestinal flora. So it will never just go away.

      Treatment with antibiotics can lead to eliminating the yeast's natural competitors for resources, and increase the severity of the condition.

      In clinical settings, candidiasis is commonly treated with antimycotics—the antifungal drugs commonly used to treat candidiasis are topical clotrimazole, topical nystatin, fluconazole, and topical ketoconazole.

  38. QUESTION:
    is there a all natural way to cure a yeast infection? i heard about AZO has anyone used it and does it work?
    what the best way to cure a yeast infection all natural with no chemicals

    • ANSWER:
      L-lysine capsules. Insert one in the vagina at night, (make sure that they are capsules and not pills) as far up as you can get it. Also, take them by mouth four times a day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime, for three days. You can use this every night, but my infections always responded well to this form of treatment and were gone almost overnight. Candida lives on sugar. Don't feed your body any sugar and you should be able to heal this up in one or two days.

      L-lysine is an amino acid and helps to balance the system and change it from acid to alkaline through its binding properties with calcium which equalizes acid in the body. Acid can translate to "sugar" in the body. You can also douche with Apple Cider vinegar (1 part vinegar to 6 parts warm water) to help with the healing process.

      "L-lysine is a safe, nontoxic, natural substance when used within recommended amounts." http://vitamins.ultimatefatburner.com/l-lysine-review.html

  39. QUESTION:
    yeast infections. best way to prevent them and natural cures?
    does anyone have any good ones

    • ANSWER:
      Eat plenty of yogurt to prevent infection.
      Wear COTTON underwear for the liner not silk
      If you go swimming try not to walk around for hours at a time in your wet trunks and this applies too when you have on your "wet" gym clothes take them off as moisture "down there" can cause a yeast infection.
      Do not use chemical deodorant or talc products on the vagina, as they can change the environment enough to allow yeast to flourish and grow. Lastly, if you still have recurrent yeast infections, look at your diet and see if eliminating high carbohydrate foods, like white-sugar foods, will lessen the frequency of your infections.

    I don't want to be on antiboitics forever...Anybody?
    And it's definently Rosacea!
    So far Tetracycline is the only thing that is making it better!

  44. QUESTION:
    Are there Natural Cure for Yeast Infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes live yogurt cultures. EAT YOGURT basically. Because you already have one there is one other thing. Buy plain yogurt, this is gross kinda, and rub it on your area. I know I know, sounds bad, heard it works. If you have recurring infections buy acidophillas (sp??) pills in refer section of health food store and take them.

  45. QUESTION:
    does anyone have a natural cure for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't like eating yogurt, you can also get probiotics in a pill form... that's the part of yogurt that actually helps to promote a healthy internal ecology that yeast has a hard time growing in.
      Acidophilus is the most common probiotic, but many people prefer a complex of that with other things. The best thing is that if you take probiotics on a daily basis, I've talked to a lot of customers that haven't had yeast infections since shortly after they started taking probiotics. Good luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    is there a natural cure for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Yoghurt is the common folk medicine that cures it but it takes time and is better prophylaxis than a cure. And the yoghurt needs to have active acidophilus cultures. Besides being a healthy snack, yoghurt can be used topically or as a douche but only if you're patient enough to wait for results. To prevent recurring infections eating yoghurt daily has been an accepted and tested practice.

      I've attached a really lame link listing some homeopathic cures based upon the types of symptoms people experience. But one caveat: these work best on recurring infections.

      Oh yeah, caveat number two: I'm assuming you have had yeast infections before, because if you haven't there are other vaginal infections with similar symptoms. So if its the first time you should have a doctor check it out.

  47. QUESTION:
    what is a natural way to cure yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I always have ups n downs with my yeast infection and am still combating this myself. But I find avoiding sugary/carbohydrate filled food helps to reduce yeast infection. Reduce only, not virtual elimination. Then, I'm also taking garlic pills (1 pills after each meal). The reason I'm very interested with natural ways of combating yeast infection is because I've been using clotrimazole (creams, pills n inserted creams) for 5 years n wish to stop this unnatural medication. Besides, I don't know if it could have a negative side effect if I use this for too long. No doubt it clears it in 1-2 days but it recurs again anyway. So it gets expensive. Also, I plan to have baby 1 day n am not comfortable using these medications then. So, I'm still looking for the best natural remedy. I know that yogurt and cow's milk don't work for me. In fact they encourage more yeast attack. My yeast infection keeps recurring cos I'm unable to avoid sugary or carbohydrate foods. Also, my immune system isn't as good since I was a child. I'm the kind of person who'll have flu 4 times a year. I do indulge in some chocolates n ice-creams once in awhile cos I love to eat junk food. So, asking me to totally eliminate them is not feasible for me. I heard that eating butter can help. I did try eating the Walkers brand pure butter cookies (30% butter) n it didn't worsen my yeast infection. It didn't make it better either. So, at least there's something tasty that I can eat without worsening it. I tried the cheaper butter cookies (10% butter) that are higher in sugar content, but my yeast infection worsened into clumpy yellow cheesy substance. So, I'm stuck with the expensive butter cookies. I think changing panties twice a day helps. Also, powders made of corn powder doesn't work for me. Use regular baby talc instead, they help me to keep dry down there without worsening the itch. No sweet drinks. Lemon juice doesn't work for me. Douching with iodine doesn't work for me. Bifidus, lactobifidus or acidophilus doesn't help me. I think it made it worse. What I do when I wana reduce the yeast is cut sugary/carbohydrate filled food/drinks. When it's gone, I'll treat myself with sugary snacks and then it comes back. Then, I'll cut sugar/carbo again. Yeah, it's a vicious cycle. Sometimes, I over indulge, and it's back to clotrimazole again cos the natural remedy isn't effective when the discharge is clumpy cheesy. I don't use birth control pills, only condoms. I do cardio exercise 1 hr a week as I find myself getting yeast attacks more easily if I don't exercise. Somehow, potato chips are Ok with me. It doesn't worsen it. Of course, it doesn't make it better either. Seeing the doc is expensive n it still doesn't work. I already realised they also don't have the ultimate solution. I use Prolin (pH balanced 3.5, soap-free) feminine wash to wash my vagina. It's the only 1 I can use down there. I tried Dove, Sebamed and several expensive famous feminine washes before and they all don't work for me. Drink lots of plain water.

Natural Yeast Infection Cures For Children

Written By: admin - Sep• 03•12

There is no doubt that a yeast infection is very uncomfortable and sometimes painful. If you are suffering from a yeast infection you are not alone. Millions of women and men contract a yeast infection each and every year. If you are looking for instant relief and don't want to try and rely on over the counter treatments, then you should consider a 24 hour natural yeast infection cure. Here are a few tips.

First you should understand that a yeast infection is just an overgrowth of fungus. If your immune system is comprised or your body loses its ability to control the fungus, it will rapidly spread in areas where conditions are favorable. Our genital areas are the ideal place on our bodies for the yeast fungus to grow. And since yeast already exists naturally in the vagina, this is where you will primarily experience the symptoms of a yeast infection - of redness, soreness, and itchiness.
One method to reduce the symptoms of a yeast infection is to prepare a salt and water bath. This will help to reduce the fungal over growth. Make sure to clean all undergarments using boiling water. Note that powders that are starched based can help fungus grow.

You can then apply yogurt to the affected area two or three times a day for about 20 minutes. Yogurt has long been known for its abilities to prevent and cure yeast infections. Another known deterrent is garlic. Ingesting and applying raw garlic to the affected area will reduce yeast infection symptoms.

Hydrocortisone cream can provide relief of itchiness. This varies in women and you should use after you have exhausted other methods. Tea tree oil is a great alternative to hydrocortisone for yeast infections.

Some women experience recurring yeast infections. Sometimes this is due to a low immune system. Most of the time though simple changes to lifestyle and diet can resolve yeast infections once and for all.

Natural Ways To Cure A Yeast Infection

Written By: admin - Sep• 02•12

Not only is the yeast infection extremely embarrassing, but it can also cause a great deal of discomfort. Yeast infections can be associated with a very foul scent from the vagina besides just causing itching and burning. Luckily, most of the healthy people get relieved from the yeast infection easily and completely, when they receive appropriate treatment.

You can pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil, a natural anti fungal, on a tampon and insert it into vagina, if you want to cure yeast infection naturally.

Another natural remedy is using garlic since it has antifungal properties which also help to boost your immunity. You can wrap garlic in cheesecloth and insert into the vagina to kill the fungus. Salt and vinegar solution also maintains the pH balance of your vagina.

Organic Coconut Oil is a medically proven anti-fungal agent, which can also be used as a lubricant during sexual intercourse and helps prevent recurrences of these infections. Persons suffering from such infections should also drink more water, but they must keep the genital regions like the top and side portions of the penis as dry as possible. Organic oregano oil (diluted in water) can also be effective for treating penile yeast infections.

If you have had a yeast infection before and can recognize the signs and symptoms, you may be able to cure your infection by using an over-the-counter cream or suppository such as Monistat. Over-the-counter yeast treatments come in one-, three- and seven-day strengths. Insert the cream or suppository at bedtime. These products are available at drugstores and supermarkets.

Everybody knows about the antibacterial and anti fungal properties of vinegar. You can fill your bath tub with 1 cup vinegar and soak in the water for about 15-20 minutes. Then, dry the vaginal area thoroughly. You can use any vinegar, but apple cider vinegar would be the best for yeast infection treatment

Keeping yourself clean and dry will not allow fungal infections to take place as they need moist and warm environment to regenerate. Showering regularly and wearing loose clothes will help keep you away from nasty yeast infections.

There are a few herbal anti-fungal remedies that can cure a yeast infection in both men and women. Genetian Violet is an anti-fungal that is natural and non-toxic and works to treat such infections that occur on the skin.

  3. QUESTION:
    what is the best and most natural way to cure a yeast infection?

      - white cottage cheese-like discharge
      - some odor
      - dryness (can cause bleeding)
      - digestive problems
      - itchiness

  4. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to cure a yeast infection?
    And how can I be feeling my best?
    I got it from taking baths too much...

    • ANSWER:
      Assuming you are talking about vaginal yeast infection, you could try Natural LIVE yogurt.The key is not the yogurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yogurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level. The yogurt needs to be introduced into the vagina with a tampon or syringe (minus the needle!)

      Failing that, an anti-yeast preparation like Canesten would be a rational choice. If it does not clear up then you must see your GP so he can take a swab.

  5. QUESTION:
    is there a all natural way to cure a yeast infection? i heard about AZO has anyone used it and does it work?
    what the best way to cure a yeast infection all natural with no chemicals

    • ANSWER:
      L-lysine capsules. Insert one in the vagina at night, (make sure that they are capsules and not pills) as far up as you can get it. Also, take them by mouth four times a day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime, for three days. You can use this every night, but my infections always responded well to this form of treatment and were gone almost overnight. Candida lives on sugar. Don't feed your body any sugar and you should be able to heal this up in one or two days.

      L-lysine is an amino acid and helps to balance the system and change it from acid to alkaline through its binding properties with calcium which equalizes acid in the body. Acid can translate to "sugar" in the body. You can also douche with Apple Cider vinegar (1 part vinegar to 6 parts warm water) to help with the healing process.

      "L-lysine is a safe, nontoxic, natural substance when used within recommended amounts." http://vitamins.ultimatefatburner.com/l-lysine-review.html

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a natural cure for a female yeast infection?
    I am tired of using monostat, because I feel that it has to be bad for me in some way, and I want a natural cure.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to avoid all yeast and sugar products ......... sugar will literally feed the yeast overgrowth allowing it to flourish......... ditch the alcohol and sodas and diet sodas too if you drink any .....and pump up your intake of fresh filtered water to at least 2 - 3 litres per day ..... antiobiotics, especially broad - spectrum antiobiotics will also kill the helpful bacteria which you need for a healthy gut ........ supplement with a good quality probiotic to rebalance gut flora ......... eat more alkaline forming foods such as leafy and green vegies, cold water fresh fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting, organic nuts and seeds such as almonds and brazil nuts........ all these foods are rich in magnesium and will thus encourage the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy aiding in digestion and effective elimination ........ eat organic brown rice and quinoa (prounounced keen ~ wah) as they are both a rich source of the B complex of vitamins and will provide you with the carbs you need for sustained energy and the quinoa is also rich in calcium and iron .......... Avoid sugars such as honey, molasses, fructose, maltose, lactose and fruit juices ...... avoid artificial sweetners and foods containing brewer's yeast - ie - alcohol such as beer, wine, brandy, whiskey, rum, ciders and root beer.... avoid baker's yeast ie ~ breads and rolls and pastries .... avoid mushrooms ... avoid fruits and vegies with any sign of mold growth on them .... avoid fermented beverages and condiments including mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled vegies and pickles, salad dressings (use lemon and olive oil instead), soy sauce and vinegar .... avoid all types of hard cheeses which are a pretty good source of mold.... avoid processed and smoked meats and fish, including hot dogs, sausages, luncheon meats etc....... these meats are processed with sugar, spices, yeast and other preservatives .... avoid canned bottled or frozen fruit and vegie juices cos they have loads of sugar and are commonly made from overripened or damaged produce; generally the skin of the fruit contains surface mold and rotten spots, which are pulverised into the juice... avoid dried fruits.... avoid coffee & tea as much as you can as caffeine will aggravate yeast overgrowth..................... you don't need to use medications to kill a yeast overgrowth ..... simply eliminate their food source and they will disappear on their own ...... if you normalise the bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract you will feel much better and in most cases won't need drugs ♥

      hope this helps a bit

  7. QUESTION:
    what is a natural way to cure yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I always have ups n downs with my yeast infection and am still combating this myself. But I find avoiding sugary/carbohydrate filled food helps to reduce yeast infection. Reduce only, not virtual elimination. Then, I'm also taking garlic pills (1 pills after each meal). The reason I'm very interested with natural ways of combating yeast infection is because I've been using clotrimazole (creams, pills n inserted creams) for 5 years n wish to stop this unnatural medication. Besides, I don't know if it could have a negative side effect if I use this for too long. No doubt it clears it in 1-2 days but it recurs again anyway. So it gets expensive. Also, I plan to have baby 1 day n am not comfortable using these medications then. So, I'm still looking for the best natural remedy. I know that yogurt and cow's milk don't work for me. In fact they encourage more yeast attack. My yeast infection keeps recurring cos I'm unable to avoid sugary or carbohydrate foods. Also, my immune system isn't as good since I was a child. I'm the kind of person who'll have flu 4 times a year. I do indulge in some chocolates n ice-creams once in awhile cos I love to eat junk food. So, asking me to totally eliminate them is not feasible for me. I heard that eating butter can help. I did try eating the Walkers brand pure butter cookies (30% butter) n it didn't worsen my yeast infection. It didn't make it better either. So, at least there's something tasty that I can eat without worsening it. I tried the cheaper butter cookies (10% butter) that are higher in sugar content, but my yeast infection worsened into clumpy yellow cheesy substance. So, I'm stuck with the expensive butter cookies. I think changing panties twice a day helps. Also, powders made of corn powder doesn't work for me. Use regular baby talc instead, they help me to keep dry down there without worsening the itch. No sweet drinks. Lemon juice doesn't work for me. Douching with iodine doesn't work for me. Bifidus, lactobifidus or acidophilus doesn't help me. I think it made it worse. What I do when I wana reduce the yeast is cut sugary/carbohydrate filled food/drinks. When it's gone, I'll treat myself with sugary snacks and then it comes back. Then, I'll cut sugar/carbo again. Yeah, it's a vicious cycle. Sometimes, I over indulge, and it's back to clotrimazole again cos the natural remedy isn't effective when the discharge is clumpy cheesy. I don't use birth control pills, only condoms. I do cardio exercise 1 hr a week as I find myself getting yeast attacks more easily if I don't exercise. Somehow, potato chips are Ok with me. It doesn't worsen it. Of course, it doesn't make it better either. Seeing the doc is expensive n it still doesn't work. I already realised they also don't have the ultimate solution. I use Prolin (pH balanced 3.5, soap-free) feminine wash to wash my vagina. It's the only 1 I can use down there. I tried Dove, Sebamed and several expensive famous feminine washes before and they all don't work for me. Drink lots of plain water.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi well what u describe sounds very much like what is below so read on Ciao ♥
      What is vaginal yeast infection?
      Simply put, the vaginal yeast infection is the irritation of the vulva and the vagina. The underlying cause of this infection is the overgrowth of the yeast or fungus Candida. Although this fungus is normally found only within the vaginal area, an overgrowth can cause potential harm. Statistically speaking, vaginal yeast infection occurs very commonly. Of all the women throughout the world, around 75 percent of them are infected with this at one time or another.
      What people should be aware of is that every woman is under the risk of getting this infection. This is more so if one is: under a lot of stress, lacks the proper amount of sleep; has a scanty diet or one that includes too much sugar intake; pregnant and sick; taking pills for birth control; under heavy antibiotics; or has diseases like HIV and diabetes.
      -- A strange dense, scentless, milky like vaginal discharge
      -- Undetermined hurt during sexual intercourse, some slight blood spotting.
      -- Uncontrolled itchiness and a burning feeling in the vagina and the skin rounding the vagina (vulva).
      -- Undetermined puffiness of the vulva.
      -- An inflamed burning sensation during urination
      Regardless of how many or few symptoms occur, the infection may either be severe or mild, so one should consult a doctor as quickly as possible. This is because the symptoms for vaginal yeast infection are very similar to that of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea or Chlamydia.
      How can vaginal yeast infection be treated?
      Simply put, vaginal yeast infections can be treated and cured with the use of certain anti-fungal medicines that can come in many forms like suppositories inserted in the vagina, ointments, tablets and creams. The most popular medications are terconazole, tioconazole, nystatin, miconazole, clotimazole, and butoconazole. Most of these are readily available over-the-counter at various grocery stores and drug stores. Another known medication is fluconazole, and it can be taken per dosage as prescribed by a doctor.
      Unfortunately, like other infections, vaginal yeast infection may sometimes develop antibodies against medication. Thus, it is a must that one does not use these medicines unless she is completely sure of having the infection. Make sure that the doctor has confirmed it after a thorough check-up. Stick to the medicine prescribed by the doctor and stay away from dubious medical remedies.
      Self-Medication May Worsen the Infection - It is a must that doctors look into the condition before using any medicine. Pregnant women, those who have been diagnosed with vaginal yeast infection before, as well as those who have repeated yeast infection conditions should first check with their doctors before using any form of treatment. Should one plan to use these over-the-counter medications, it is essential that she understand and follow the instructions so that she will get the full effect.
      So as to avoid vaginal yeast infection, women must: Avoid using douches. Avoid using scented products for hygienic purposes like tampons, pads, sprays, and bubble baths.
      Change tampons and pads frequently during periods. Avoid wearing tight clothes and underwear that are made from synthetic fibers. use cotton instead, And take off exercise clothes and wet swimsuits as quickly as possible.
      Contrary to popular belief, it is very rare for one to contract vaginal yeast infection through sexual activity. It is when one's immune system is weakened that a woman becomes highly susceptible to this infection
      Vaginal yeast infection is a condition that can be treated with proper medication and good hygiene practices.

  12. QUESTION:
    how to cure a yeast infection in my dog?
    My dog has a yeast infection. I had an old Golden Retriever a few years back who developed a yeast infection and the vet treated it with antibiotics plus flushing out the ears and then putting drops in them. It went away for only a short time. His health went down hill fast and he was in great pain from hip displacia. I have recently read up on a type of fungus/yeast infection called Candida Albicans. It has all the same symptoms. Part of the cure is to give an enzyme that is found in yogurt. It said to give the dog Acidophilus to build up the natural enzymes in the stomach where this infection starts. The smell from the dogs body and ears are horrible. He gnaws at his feet and skin all the time. I have read from some of you that the ear canal and the stomach are not connected but you still went on to say give the dog a non grain food. This fungus/yeast infection works its way from the stomach and makes its way to most parts of the body, especially the ears.

    So am trying the ear rinse of one part white vinegar to four parts water. twice a day, one Acidophilus a day and maybe some yogurt once a week. It can't hurt. I also give him a children s antihistamine once a day for the itching. We will see how much better (if any) this will be then what the Vet prescribed for my other dog.

    • ANSWER:
      your doing the right thing by giving them yogurt and the Acidophilus because yeast infections come from grains and also the stomach.
      You have read correctly as that is how the ears become infected is from the stomach and the yeast that builds up.
      YOu may give your dog more yogurt along with the Acidophilus.

  13. QUESTION:
    Best cure for a yeast infection. GO.?
    This is my first time. I'm a bit nervous here... I know it happens to everyone and it's common but yeah... I'm a bit thrown. There's no manual or anything. (I WOULD ALSO LIKE A RECOMMENDATION FOR A GOOD BOOK ABOUT VAGINAS, I FEEL LIKE THERE'S MORE I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MYSELF)
    Anyway. I've heard a lot of people have bad reactions to monistat, especially the one-night torpedo. I'm open to something natural, I mean, yeast infections have been around since vaginas have been... right? So there's gotta be a natural way to deal with this ... mess. Help. Please.

    • ANSWER:
      i think pple say to eat yogurt b/c of the good bacteria in it; but i've used monistat and/or vagisil n the past n it worked fine. i've only had 2 that i can remember having to treat n the cream worked just fine for the itching, but i think they have some kind of insert too. tip: if u use an insert, wear a pad so u catch any extra discharge.

  14. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection - How Do I Cure This Kind Of Yeast Infection?
    It begun as a vaginal yeast infection so I rinsed with cool water frequently and kept it clean - no soap for a little while and loose cool clothing. Then I went to the doctor - almost 10 days into the yeast infection and she gave me this one take pill that was suppose to take full effect 25 hours after taking. The swelling and inflammation and open sores all went way down and are almost gone as is. There is still that tough to get out little white almost oval shaped yeast in the creases of the vaginal area and in the center. Only noticing as of this morning the center of the vaginal area "exploded " in a way; the center of the vaginal area had a large clump of white mushy chunky stuff. This happened twice today. Of course I rinsed. The second time I rinsed my mom recommended to try using soap - an all natural moisturizing vegetable oil and goat milk for sensitive soap. This worked nicely.

    >>>>Anyway my concern is that the yeast is growing on my Tongue, on different areas of my skin and I suspect inside of me as well. My lips (on my face) feel so chapped and parched it's kind of painful to move them - it is yeast though. What do I do about this sort of situation? How do I cure a yeast infection that literally seems to be just about everywhere inside me and on me?

    I scrape my tongue and rinse off new growth frequently(body rinse and tongue rinsing too - always separate ). I even use a soap that seems to be helping.

    The entire house has been cleaned today - and cleaned well.

    I am 16. I have been sexually active before. What do I do to get rid of this yeast infection?

    Please help quickly.
    >> The sores have cleared up

    >> now the yeast is just growing just about everywhere in and on me

    • ANSWER:
      yeast can be a problem in the body. Oil of Candida helps kill it some. Stop eating yeast and start using pro biotic. Pills and will do the same as the yogurt with out the sugar.

      Probiotis help the most and in time will fix your system. If it gets worse see your Dr for stronger meds.

  15. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to cure a yeast infections without inserting things "up there"?
    I've never had a yeast infection before, but am beginning to believe I do. I really don't want OTC medicines...are there any natural remedies?
    Infection****

    • ANSWER:
      The diflucan pill is the fastest, easiest way to cure a yeast infection. but it's not considered natural. it's a drug prescribed by a doctor. Most home remedy's require putting something up there because in order to cure the yeast infection the home remedy needs to get to where the infection is, and thats inside your vagina. Soaking in a warm bath with a cup of apple cider vinegar for 30 minutes helps a lot, and using natural, plain greek yogurt and putting it on a tampon and then inserting it inside you for a couple hours helps also. those are the two best natural remedies i've tried that work.

  16. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      Is he still in diapers? If not, it's pretty unlikely that he has a yeast infections because it needs damp to grow. Nystatin ointment or powder is what they usually use for groin yeast in babies but it's not available Over The Counter. Some powders men use for jock itch are antifungals and technically, yeast is treated with antifungals as well. Clotrimazole cream is an antifungal available OTC. Zeasorb is an antifungal powder available OTC. Ask the pharmacist if he/she thinks it would be ok to try one of those on a 2 1/2 year old with suspected yeast or if you should definitely get it diagnosed by a doctor first.

      I am not recommending any steroid cream. None of the above medicines mentioned are steriod creams or contain steroids. The only steroid cream avaiable OTC is hydrocortisone and I would never recommend putting that on a kid of any age's crotch....unless a doctor told me that the inflammation is so bad that there is no other choice. Some people (ie Mr C) should read more thoroughly before making judgements...

      Furthermore, yeast infections are never treated with antibiotics. Yeast is technically a fungus and not a bacteria. If it turns out to be yeast, it is going to be treated with an antifungal, like nystatin, clotrimazole, or miconazole. There is a new product out there called Vusion that contains miconazole(0.25%), petrolatum(81%) and zinc oxide(15%). It is an ointment specifically for the indication of diaper dermatitis from yeast. For babies > 4 weeks old but only available Rx.

  17. QUESTION:
    Late period + possible yeast infection...?
    I've never gotten a yeast infection before, but I think I may have one now. I've been on antibiotics for the past three weeks for an ear injury/infection, which I've read may cause them. I have a couple questions:

    1-what's a natural way to cure a yeast infection. I already eat two cups of yogurt a day. Anything else?

    2- My period's two days late. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Could the two be related? Can a yeast infection cause your period to be late? Could a yeast infection cause a false negative on a pregnancy test?

    • ANSWER:
      I can't answer the question about your period being late - I've never heard of a yeast infection (or antibiotics) causing one's period to be late. But anything is possible.

      The antibiotics are probably what caused your yeast infection - that is very common. Especially if you drank alcohol at all while you were on the antibiotics - that's a surefire way to cause an infection.

      Acidophilus (the key ingredient in yogurt, also sold in pills and chewables) is the only real "cure for a yeast infection" but it is more of a preventative measure than anything. It could possibly cure a *slight* infection, but if yours has gone on for a couple of days, and is starting to really bother you, then you should probably get an Over-The-Counter cure at the drug store.

      Also, many women who are prone to chronic Y.I.'s find that the week prior to getting your period is the week that most infections start - something to do with chemical changes in the body. In this kind of scenario, many women find that a slight pre-menstrual infection will go away on it's own by the time the period is over.

      If yours is not too bad, you can always try taking acidophilus pills (the ones that require refrigeration are usually the best quality) and eating yogurt and waiting till your period comes and goes, to see if you can cure it without medication. If it gets worse instead of better, it's past the point of homeopathic cures - treat it with something like Monistat ASAP. (If you go to the doctor for the infection, she will prescribe something very similar to Monistat)

      Also, PLAIN, unflavored, sugar-free yogurt, applied topically, can help the symptoms. Apply before sleep & wear a pad.

  18. QUESTION:
    I've had a yeast infection for three years straight Part Two!!?
    Okay, thanks everyone for the advice, but I have one more question before I actually start this natural treatment to cure my yeast infection. Is it actually safe for me to be taking Acidophilus capsules plus Caprylic Acid and use RePhresh as well as eating yogurt?

    Would all of this harm my body in some way?

    Because too much of something (even if it's good) can harm someone, right?

    ALSO.

    I have the discharge symptoms, I have the hurting during sex symptom, I have itching when the discharge gets bad, the discharge does smell like yeast, I've been having digestive problems and I took the spit test and my spit looked weird like spiderwebs.

    But if I do all of this and don't have a yeast infection what will happen to me? Although I'm pretty sure I do because my gyno did lab tests and said I had one and then tried to say 2 months later that it went away but I still have the symptoms.

    What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      it looks like you have yeast infection and you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection forever then you must follow these tips:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) You must use herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore...

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Yeastrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.yeastrol.com/?aid=221781

      good luck!

  19. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection WITH odor?
    I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection (white cottage-cheesy discharge, itching, swelling, painful intercourse) but I also have a very strong odor (literally smells like garbage). So strong that if I take a shower in the morning, put on new panties, I can smell it half-way through the day. So do I have a yeast infection or something else, like a bacterial infection?

    I went to a sex clinic a month or two ago and they said that they see signs of yeast, so it was a yeast infection. But why the odor? After the sex clinic I took Canesten Oral but it didn't work... what can I do now? Are there any natural remedies for curing yeast and/or bacterial infections?

  20. QUESTION:
    Treating a vaginal yeast infection with Garlic?
    Ever since I have joined the military 2 years ago, I have been suffering from reoccurring yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. I have taken Diflucan (Fluconazole) and Metronidazole (flagyl) and every other medicine you can think of with no positive results. Anybody in the military knows that they don't really try and get to the root of the problem, they will just give you the medicine and send you on your merry way. I read an article on using a clove of garlic and vaginally inserting it to cure yeast infections. Has anybody ever personally tried it? What are some other natural remedies that I can use to treat a yeast infection so that I won't have to continually go back to medical?
    I think what the problem stems from is the fact that when I work, I'm sweating and slaving for hours and all the moisture down there isn't good. I only wear cotton underwear and I can change my underwear anywhere for 2-4 times a day because it's so hot. I work on helicopters and so I don't have the leisure of sitting all day in an air conditioned room.
    Monika, I use to be in the medical field prior to joining the military and it is a fact that garlic is a somewhat natural antibiotic. Recall how Louis Pasteur used it in his laboratory studies when coming up with an effective way of killing of bacteria and certain fungi. Allicin, one main compound in garlic, effectively fights off infection. I just want to know if anybody has ever tried it and the results they've gotten back from it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard of eating garlic to help cure the infection! Natural yogurt with live cultures is great. Insert 2tbl spoons in the evening and leave in all night. By morning the good bacteria should have killed a far amount of the bad bacteria. You can also eat natural yogurt, no less than 300grams a day. This could take 7 to 14 days to clear up. Once it has cleared keep eating the yogurt for a couple of weeks, even just 3 servings a week, to stop the infection reoccuring. Try wearing cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing also. This helps to air the area.
      I hope this has helped you.

  21. QUESTION:
    Do I have a yeast infection?
    I recently lost my virginity and have had sex multiple times since. Soon after, my vagina started itching and producing a not natural (white and cheesy looking, very gross) discharge. I believe I have a yeast infection from the friction, but I am also afraid I may have some sort of STD.

    What are ways to cure a yeast infection? How do I know that this is a yeast infection and not something else? Obviously, this is something I should ask a doctor about, and I will if the problem persists, but I would like to know the public's opinion. :)

    Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Different types of infections:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter at any drug or grocery store in the USA.

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor

      Signs of trichomoniasis
      A watery, yellowish or greenish bubbly discharge
      An unpleasant odor
      Pain and itching when urinating
      Most apparent after your period
      See a doctor

      Unless of course it's an STD. Good luck to you.

  22. QUESTION:
    Does a yeast infection natuarally go away?
    I took ONE anti biotic pill perscribed to me and then I remembered that they can cause yeast infections. I'm not sure if I have one, I've had 2 my whole life but it's like... just a SMALL sign of one. I don't want to buy monastat because I know you're not supposed to use it if you don't have a yeast infection sooooo....

    I was wondering if there was a more natural way to cure it or if it will just go away ??

    • ANSWER:
      If the yeast infection is just a minor imbalance your body may sometimes correct it and it will go away on it's own, but if you are taking antibiotics for something it is important with antibiotics to take it the full prescribed time. Yes there are natural things you can do to help. You can help prevent a yeast infection with natural treatments while on antibiotics as well. Eating yogurt or taking probiotics orally or vaginally or both during antibiotics can help prevent infection while taking antibiotics. If you are prone to them this is a very good idea.

      Look at the links I included below. The first link under sources is an article, it will help you understand what happens causing vaginal infections and what can help. The next one is a study that was done showing that vaginal probiotics help with vaginal infections. And the next two are links to a couple products. I personally have used the Probiostat from Lorna Vanderhaeghe's line of products and found it worked well for me. You can also take probiotics internally to help from the inside as well. You can also do things like take organic Oregano oil. For Oregano Oil you put drops under the tongue and hold it there as long as you can (it may have a burning sensation) and then swallow, follow with some water if needed. The higher the concentration the better. Oregano oil stimulates the immune system, is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. When taking oregano oil it is a good idea to take probiotics orally apart from them (eg. oregano oil in the morning and probitics at night). You can also take Colloidal Silver internally as well. It can also be used vaginally for infections followed later in the day by vaginal probiotics, do the Colloidal Silver in the morning (using something that can get it high up vaginally, ...douche applicator) and the probiotics at night right before bed. You can use the Colloidal Silver other times during the day as well, just separate it by a few (5) hours from the probiotics so it doesn't just kill the healthy bacteria of the probiotics. Colloidal Silver has lots of applications, see the links below for some info. Regular douching is not recommended as the normal solution can wash out the healthy bacteria, but using the applicator to administer a treatment can be helpful and should be followed with vaginal probiotics to replenish the healthy bacteria.

      Basically you need to kill the infection somehow, but you also need to replenish the healthy bacteria and PH balance to maintain vaginal health. The PH of the vagina needs to be slightly acidic (3.8 to 4.5) for a healthy environment anything outside of that in either direction on the scale allows for infection.

      Best of luck, if you have further questions feel free to email me :)

    • ANSWER:
      Please hang in there. All things pass.

      About the yeast infection...no reason not to tell your mom. If you have had to take antibiotics, that is possibly why you got it. There is inexpensive OTC treatment that comes in like 3 doses(days), 5 days, and a one day. BTW, You can have yeast infection and not have all the symptoms.

  24. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    i have a question about yeast infection. is it curable?

    and are any of these are true and safe to use to get rid of it?

    Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infection
    Vaginal yeast infection can either be cured orally or by vaginal insertion. Most of these home remedies have been tried and tested for their efficacy. You can usually cure yourself in the privacy of your home without the need to visit your gynecologist.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil is a known natural antifungal. Pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil on a tampon and insert into vagina. Do this morning and night. A couple of days should be sufficient.

    Garlic
    Make a paste of garlic pods and apply to skin around the vagina. It may burn a bit, but is very effective. This paste can be used for yeast infection in other parts of the body too. Another way to use garlic for the cure of vaginal yeast infection is to cut a few garlic pods fine and wrap it in a cheesecloth. Insert into vagina for about 20 minutes

    • ANSWER:
      For a yeast infection cure you have no further to look than your physician, your pharmacy, or your fridge. All three of these sources can hold just what you need for a great yeast infection cure.

      If we take our sources one by one, your physician has the ability to give you prescription medications which can potentially a yeast infection cure for you. For instance, the prescription drug Diflucan uses only one dosage and is supposed to be a particularly effective yeast infection cure.

      Other prescription yeast infection cures include Terazol and Gynazole, both of which are vaginal creams, and also Mycostatin which comes in the form of vaginal tablets or vaginal suppositories.

      All of these have side effects which you should be aware of when taking them, as do the next set of potential yeast infection cure, the over-the-counter variety.

      Up until the very early part of the twenty first century it is shameful to admit but there were no over the counter remedies available as a yeast infection cure. On the contrary, if a woman had a yeast infection she had to visit her doctor to get proper medical attention and to receive a yeast infection cure.

      So although the offerings in this department are still woefully meager, they are nonetheless there and available to anyone who doesn’t wish to advertise to the world, or their doctor, that they have a yeast infection.

      Although it is best if you get a proper checkup for your yeast infection it can’t be denied that with the availability of these creams a new world has opened up, and women can now treat such a simple problem without any attendant fuss or hoopla.

      All the available over-the-counter yeast infection cures work along the same principles as the prescription yeast infection cure, and most of them come in cream form, or suppository form. The more familiar brands include Monistat, Femstat, and Vagistat.

      Moving on next to the natural cures and remedies section, you will find that the number of alternative yeast infection cure methods are too numerous to do more than give an honorable mention here.

      To that end only a few of the well known natural yeast infection cure methods have been mentioned. To begin with we’ll start off with everyone’s favorite the yogurt yeast infection cure. It can be messy in the extreme to have to apply yogurt to the vagina, but it turns out that it is well worth the effort.

      Another natural yeast infection cure that is well known and used is that of the garlic cure. Being one of the wonder herbs of the world, garlic is good for many an ailment and is a particularly effective yeast infection cure, especially when used as a suppository.

      Next up you have apple cider vinegar, cranberries, oregano, cinnamon, curd, Tea Tree oil, lemon, lime, and Vitamin C. All of these can be used as an effective yeast infection cure and all of them work.

  25. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    okay so stupid me, left a pad on or a few days and then it smelled really bad, i removed it took a shower, and no more smell! but ever since then i have been a little itchy.. not constant, just every once in a while. no smell, and no unusual discharge.

    oh yea not sexually active so can't be std

    so i really don't want to go thru the hassle of telling my mom, so i was hoping that there was a natural way to cure it? also if not cured what could happen??
    would hydrocortisone cream work?? i have that...

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have a discharge, you probably don't have a yeast infection. It's probably just an irritation. I would just use a soap that is ph balanced (you can find those at the health food store). Also, it's a little messy but plain organic yogurt might help with the discomfort if you want to go the "natural" way.

      I don't think I would use the hydrocortisone on that area of your body unless you check with your doctor first.

      If this condition doesn't go away in a week or so, I would tell your mom and maybe call a doctor.

      Good luck

  26. QUESTION:
    Mini Poodle with an ear infection.. Any suggestions OTHER THAN A VET?
    I am a vet tech. I just got a Mini Poodle today and found that he's got an yeast ear infection. I'm looking for a NATURAL way to treat/cure his poor ears! I do agree that taking him to the vet is the best, so please don't tell me to take him, because I already know! I honestly don't believe the medication they will give him will fix it, because I had a dog years ago who had chronic ear infections and nothing helped that the vet did!

    I was told of some natural ways to cure yeast-infected ears, but I forgot! Does anyone know of NATURAL ways to treat his ears OTHER THAN TAKING HIM TO THE VET!! Please don't mention vet's because I don't believe that's something vet's can really do, it's a waste of money! I went to school for vet tech, so I'm not uneducated as far as veterinary care for animals!

    It is definitely a YEAST ear infection. The smell, texture, and color of his ear leather confirms.
    i WENT to school to be a vet tech. PAST TENSE. worked in a vet office as a tech for over 1 year. had major health problems that prevented me from working in the veterinary field.

    i don't have my books anymore, thus the reason i have to ask you idiots. look up Florida Institute of Animal Arts. I graduated from the vet course in 2008.
    also, as stated before, I GOT THE DOG TODAY! some old guy owned him and didnt want him anymore, im guessing because of the ear infection as well as the skin problems he has. so dont blame me for something I'M TRYING TO CURE THAT SOME GUY DIDNT WANT TO DEAL WITH!!

    its not that i don't want to spend the money, i have more than enough to spend. i would rather do it holistic and without him getting manhandled by random people that dont know what they are doing to begin with!

    • ANSWER:
      well ms. vet tech ... clearly you did not study up too well in vet tech school because there are no effective ways to treat an ear infection "naturally" ... if it could be done "naturally" your career choice would be obsolete ... the dog needs medication from the vet and you taking the dog from a guy who could not care for the dog only for you to take the dog and not care for the dog, what is the difference ... you have a yahoo answers account ??? and i really have to question your vet tech and dog ownership experience ... my dog swims in the ocean almost daily and does get recurrent ear infections ... two squishes of Surolan (http://www.universalpetmeds.ca/medications/Surolan/Drops) and the dog is good as new ... allowed to get out of control the dog is in extreme pain ... you do not take on a new animal that already has medical problems you can not address effectively (yahoo answers is not effectively) ...

  28. QUESTION:
    Girls - I have a question about vaginal discharge?
    I am experiencing some different vaginal discharge than what I normally have. My vagina is not swollen, red, or burning, it is moderately itchy though, and I have a very thin, almost milky white discharge, but it's not a lot and it's not clumpy. I don't think it's a yeast infection, because I had one before and it doesn't look or feel the same. What could be causing this? I was taking acidophilus tablets over a period of a few months, but I didn't like the way they made me feel, so I stopped. Could this be my vagina trying to regulate itself again without the help of the acidophilus? I'm not really that uncomfortable, just worried. I'm supposed to get my period next week so should I wait until after and see if it goes away? Any input would be greatly appreciated, and please don't give me that website about natural cure for yeast infections - 1. I am 99% sure it's not one, and 2. that website is NOT helpful.

    Thank you!!!
    P.S. I am on birth control (ortho tri cyclen lo) but I know I am not pregnant because I haven't had sex since before my last period. I also know it's not an STD because I've only had one partner and he was tested.

  29. QUESTION:
    Where's the vet? My dogs ear infection?
    My dog has yeast infection is there a natural way to cure?

    • ANSWER:
      No. If let go, the dog can suffer hearing loss. It is easy to treat with ear medication and sometimes oral antibiotics. Please see the vet!!!!!!

      Vicks would cause a LOT of problems!!!!!!!! It is PETROLUM based and would BLOCK all the gunk in the ear from coming out. No airflow in the ear equals a WORSE infection!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And I have never heard of people having a yeast infection in the ear, or a human putting Vicks IN the ear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I would LOVE to see the look on the vet when you brought it in with a RAGING infection and said you put Vicks in the ears!!!!! He would write that up in the Journal in the "Stupid things owners have done" section!! LMFAO!!!!

  32. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural chlamydia treatment?
    I dont want answers that say just suck it up and take antibiotics, PLEASE. Thanks.

    I don't take pills, I haven't in 4 years. I really strongly believe that anti-biotics aren't the way to go for many reasons:
    1- They kill the bad bacteria, but they destroy the good too
    2- weakens the immune system, which isn't great during the flu season
    3- Produces a yeast infection after, which isn't that fun to deal with.. then I'd have to either get more antibiotics or an over the counter treatment.
    4- They are bad on the stomach.

    Theres just many reasons I don't think anti biotics are great, and I'm on the hunt to find a natural treatment for chlamydia. Please, if you know anything help.

    Its a bacteria, and so is a yeast infection. Why can a yeast infection be cured over the counter but chlamydia can't?

    Any feedback, except saying to just take the damn pills, are welcome.
    I don't trust my doctor anymore. I told him months ago the symptoms I was having, and he said it was a yeast infection. I asked if he could do a test or look at it at least and he said no, it would be fine. The only reason i found out is becuase I went for my annual. If my doctor would of checked it out months and months ago, I wouldn't have to worry about being infertile and having PID.

    • ANSWER:
      You're asking a question but you don't want an answer? I suppose you don't want to hear "No, there's no so-called 'natural' treatment for chlamydia" ? Sorry but there's plenty of things we don't want to hear in life: You'll get old, one day you and everyone you love will die etc. Your reasons for not wanting to take antibiotics are ALL wrong:

      1- good/bad bacteria. Your system will handle a few depleted good bacterias, just like it does when you kill them off by eating junk food once in a while.

      2- Immune system weakness is utterly trivial compare to the real and immediate risks you have from chlamydia

      3- Yeast infection? Where did you read that rubbish, of course it doesn't!

      4- Yukky stomach? Unlikely but IF it does it'll be for a very short spell and again is trivial compared to infertility and PID.

      Yeast infection is cured using antifungals which are not regulated as much as antibiotics. If you're not happy with your doctor, then see someone else. Not trusting all doctors because you weren't happy with one is a bit crazy.

      Taking low-level antibiotics once, now, is far easier than, say, being admitted to hospital with PID, having VERY strong antibiotics administered through a drip in your arm, 24 hours a day for a week to save your life, then to be told you're infertile.

      'Natural' medicine works on imagined conditions or other situations where people are a bit gullible, feel a bit 'off' and would get better anyway. Chlamydia is a real disease and trying to use imaginary cures clearly is madness.

      Antibiotics save millions of lives every day, 'natural' cures are used by scammers to take money from the deluded and disillusioned and can cost you your life.

      Edit: Of all the things you should never use is homeopathy! Red Riding Hood has just been lucky in that her body has sorted itself out, placebos DO NOT work on real physical conditions! This is the danger with alt med, people take a fake cure, their body heals naturally, then they think it's because of the fake cure! You do NOT have the luxury of taking your time over this treatment, get yourself seen to asap!

  35. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

  36. QUESTION:
    Question for female medical problem?
    sorry to post this gross question
    but okay, i have a recurring yeast infection
    i had it about a month ago and monistat 'cured' it, but its back already. This time it's less severe so I figured instead of getting ripped off by the expensive monistat I'd try something new
    I heard natural cures like yogurt or garlic work better. So today I tried them (both) and i actually feel WAY better, it feels like its gone, but of course I probably have to keep doing it right? Anyone know how long I have to keep applying this?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you been to the doctor about this? Your probably just feeling symptomatic relief from home remedies and OTC treatments. Since it's recurring you'll probably be better off going to the doctor and getting prescription medication than trying to treat it on your own.

  37. QUESTION:
    Cures for bacterial vaginosis without antibiotics?
    I think I may have BV -- I have heavier brownish discharge with an unpleasant odor -- and I was wondering if there are any non-antibiotic cures. It might be a yeast infection, so I'll try those remedies first, but I want to know other things to try too. I'm only 13, and I can NOT go to a gyno, I'd be mortified. I'm not overly shy about any vagina related things with myself, but other people? No freakin' way. Sorry.
    The heavy discharge is new, the unpleasant smell used to only occur after skipping showers but now it's happening every day. I'm thinking it might be a sign of my period, which is irregular and due any day now, but I'm not positive. I'm a virgin, by the way. I tried switching soaps and that didn't help. I used to get a burning when I washed down there, too.
    The cures can be natural, store bought, home made, I don't care. I just want advice. Please no 'see a doctor' answers -- as I said, I can't! And no douching either, I want to solve the prob not cover it up. Thanks :)

      Are you itching? If not, chances are you do not have BV or a yeast infection.

      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter (you can try taking lots of probiotics or eating lots of unsweetened, plain yogurt, but it never worked for me)

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor (you can try taking lots of probiotics or eating lots of unsweetened, plain yogurt, but it never worked for me)

      Old blood looks brown. As blood turns brown it also smells more.

      If you think it is just a scent thing, remember, it is normal to have your own unique musky scent and it will smell stronger to you than to others. If it is foul smelling, you really should see a doctor. Part of growing up and being mature is seeking professional help when you need it.

      You can also try drinking an 8oz glass of water with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar added - drink 2-3 glasses a day.

  38. QUESTION:
    Should I not use Canasten - canesten is expensive?
    I have been using canesten for a while, it costs me quite a bit too but does not work for my yeast infection. Just recently I have found a way to get cured by using natural products. It works so much better than commercial creams. Has anyone else found a better cure? http://shops-flower.com/yeast/index.htm

    • ANSWER:
      Although it isn’t the cure for the common cold, many people certainly hail the benefits of this remedy as being heaven sent. As a relief from the burning, itching, rash, and vaginal discharge, yogurt yeast infections remedies are the number one thing on many people’s minds.

      It can be messy, it can drip, and it can feel downright silly and maybe even naughty to be doing this, but to the tens of thousands of yeast infections sufferers yogurt it is the one thing that can stop them from going over the edge.

      There are of course other remedies that will work on yeast infections, and raw garlic clove suppositories is one of them, but most people will first try their hand at one of the methods of the yogurt yeast infections cure.
      You really don't need to pay for any commercial creams. Over a lifetime you can spend hundreds on them. Why do that when a natural cure is better for you and if you are pregnant your unborn child?

      Personally I would recommend that book.

  40. QUESTION:
    is cancer a really fungus?
    To find the cure for cancer, we really need to know what we are dealing with. Why do cells suddenly start replicating out of control? Why are cancers often different colors, not normally found in the human body? Why do cancers spread through the body?

    More than a million species of fungi exist on earth, which can be classified into two broad groups: yeasts and moulds. Fungi have various shapes, colors and textures, can live on land in the open air or in the aqueous conditions of rivers, ponds seas and inside living creatures. Fungi, have the capacity to produce a fruiting body, reproductive spores, a covering like skin, arteries, and internal fluid much like blood.

    While plants, animals and humans are alive and well, the fungi around us are unable to overcome the natural defense mechanisms of higher life forms. But once death occurs, the fungi are the primary tool nature uses to reduce all that once lived into the basic elements from which they were made. This is what biologists call the carbon cycle.

    However, the exception to this simple equation of life and death is that the fungi can attack plants and animals, while they are alive. Fungal spores are everywhere, millions of tiny particles are in the air, and the food we eat. They can enter the body in many ways, through the intestinal tract, the nose and lungs, and organs exposed to the world at large. We generally do not develop an infection from these intruders. However, when the immune system is compromised, the tissues are poorly oxygenated, the body is malnourished, these spores become the dominant life form and begin to grow.

    Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize Winner) found that simply reducing the oxygen supply to normal healthy tissue, it became cancerous. What he was really experiencing was that fungal spores, hidden in most living tissue, were able to grow aneorobically, becoming the dominant life form. Normal healthy tissue needs oxygen to live and grow, cancer and fungus cells can use sugar as their primary source of energy for growth, this is called anaerobic respiration or fermentation

    could Antifungals cure cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      I have seen research on this subject by an Italian doctor, Dr. Tulio Simonici, who has said as much as you have. You probably already have seen or heard of this doctor.

      I just lost my sister to lung cancer (she never smoked) on Nov. 1/08 and had been doing some research on the subject. She worked at a casino and there was some speculation that this dust found on the tokens (cadmium?) may have had something to do with it. I looked on the internet and could not find any related cases. I did however just yesterday find an interesting article about licorice and how it may help to prevent cadmium induced liver toxicity. (Found as a result of liver toxicity that I am suffering from as a result of possibly eating too much licorice!)

      Getting back to cancer though, this Dr. Simonici was using sodium bicarbonate as an anti fugal to treat cancers in the lung and colon which he has concluded are related to candida fungal infections. He might be right, unfortunately big pharmaceutical companies are not about to give up their billions in cancer research to study anti fungal treatments--that would be too easy. Instead this doctor has complained that he has received death threats for his research and findings related to fungal infections a a cause for cancer.

Natural Way To Treat Yeast Infection

Written By: admin - Sep• 02•12

One of the most prominent complaints in the field of women's health is yeast infections. Although today there are many medications available to treat yeast infections such as Diflucan and a variety of suppositories, before our grandmothers had medicines, what did they use ladies? That's right natural remedies. Here are some of the old school remedies for yeast infections that has withstood the test of time and are tried and true for candida and yeast.

No-Yeast Tea

Each day drink three cups of the following tea between meals or a half hour before eating. Ingredients: 2 parts sage, 2 parts mullein, 2 parts raspberry leaf, 1/4 part goldenseal.
Use 4 to 6 tbsp of herb mixture per quart of water. Add herbs to cold water and bring to a simmer and keep over low heat. Keep pot covered. Remove from heat immediately and let steep twenty minutes and strain. This tea will be quite bitter, so you may wish to mix it with cranberry juice.

Douche for Yeast Infections

You may douche every few days (or if the infection is severe, each day) with the following formula:

1/2 ounce Anti - Yeast Tea

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon acidophilus culture or 1/4 cup yogurt

Small drop of tea tree oil

Steep the tea in a quart of water for one hour and then strain. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. When cooled enough, place in a douche bag, and very gently douche with the mixture.

Garlic Suppositories garlic

Quick to make, easy to apply, and very effective, garlic suppositories are a favorite remedy of many women.

~ Peel a garlic clove (some caution against nicking the garlic in the peeling process as some say the oil can burn the vaginal lining but most are not bothered by this and say that the garlic should be nicked or bruised in order for the oil to be released)

~ Wrap a piece of thin gauze around the garlic, fold the gauze in half, and twist into a tail. It will look like a gauze tampon with a tail.

~ Insert the suppository well inside the vaginal cavity. For easier insertion, a small amount of oil can be rubbed on the end of the suppository. Insert a fresh suppository every 3-5 and the old one removed. Repeat for 3 to 5 days until the infection is gone.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    natural way to treat mouth yeast infection?
    do you have recomendations how to treat mouth yeast infection with natural remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest two things. First, use a little hydrogen peroxide, swish it around in your mouth. Then use your tooth brush on your tounge and gums (before rinsing) then rinse with water. This will break up and pentrate the worst of the coating.

      The second part is aimed more at the heart of the issue. Why did you get the yeast infection in the first place. As mentioned in one of the posts above - this is an issue with your digestive system. You should take some probiotics. These are basicly the good bacteria that are in your stomache. They help your body battle back to overcome the yeast. (These types of infections are very common in conjunction with or after antibiotic usage.) For the probiotic the best thing is a powder as opposed to a pill. If you swallow a pill it all goes to your stomahce. With a powder it begins working in your mouth and down your entire digestive track as opposed to starting with your stomache. (which is what you want if the issue is in your mouth.) You want to get it from a good health food store as opposed to the supermarket or a gnc type place.

  2. QUESTION:
    Natural way to treat yeast infection (skin) in dogs?
    I groomed a dog the other day at my all natural spa and the dog had some yeast infection sores down her back. I bathed her in a tea tree oil shampoo but I was wondering if you can put tea tree oil directly on the sores to kill the infection or is there another solution without putting the dog on antibiotics at the vet?

    • ANSWER:
      http://www.naturaldogs.co.uk/store/septiderm-v-lotion-spray-240ml.html

      might help

      Tea tree oil on its own should help to kill the itchiness and then look at something like bitter yuck if it is an area that gets licked. Aloe gel might be the best option- cooling and soothing

      In the USA Naturvet offers a money back if you aren't happy- you have nothing to lose :)

  3. QUESTION:
    is there a natural way to treat thrush or yeast infection ?
    (for the vagina) without creams or medicines - juss totally natural ?

    • ANSWER:
      You can drink apple cider vinegar water as a means of preventing yeast infections as well as to help get rid of any infection you currently have. Killing an infection takes a lot out of the body, so drinking apple cider vinegar water will help a lot. Vinegar is a natural diuretic and you should be drinking six to eight cups of water a day. If you add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to that water, you will be helping to kill of the infection and also to clear out your system.

  5. QUESTION:
    Treatment for yeast infection in male?
    I had a testicular yeast infection just a couple of days ago. My testicle itched like crazy and i found blisters or rashes under my foreskin and on the testicle. It's been 5 days since i had it and i don't see it getting any better. Now the end of my foreskin is swelling and dry and i can't pull it over my testicle because the swelling made the hole small. Besides all the rash, blister, and itching, there is something gooey comming out of the testicle, not from where the pee comes out but it's like emitted by my own testicle, it's gooey and i don't know how to explain it and it's so dirty i don't feel comfortable at all. I stop wearing underwear because the tightness makes it more uncomfortable so now my stick is just hanging loose in my pant, It feels more comfortable that way with less itch and irritation. I don't know how long this is going to last and how long it will take to get better if i just leave it. During the day it's not so bad but when i'm trying to sleep my testicle it itches and stings like crazy so i can't ever sleep comfortably and when i pee it burns and it feels soar when i'm erected. I've been searching online for Natural solution but some i just can't do. Some tells me to eat plain garlic and onion, i can't do that. Is there any natural way of treating yeast infection in male? What should i avoid in food and what should i look for? Is it ok to drink sport drink later Powerade or gaterade? I am really concern about this because it never happen to me before and i don't know what to expect from it. I'm only 15, can't make no doctor appointment and it's embarrassing buying yeast infection cream at the store and i don't like chemical on my body so i want to make things as Natural as possible.

  6. QUESTION:
    Using yogurt to treat yeast infections?
    I've been reading up on natural ways to treat yeast infections, and read about eating and putting plain yogurt on your vagina. I had my doctor confirm that this is safe to do and does work. However, I read online that it has to be sugar free and plain, when I went to a whole foods store to buy some the clerk said there was no such thing as a sugar free yogurt, so I bought plain yogurt and it said on the container that it had the active live cultures.

    With sugar in the yogurt, will it only aid the yeast in growing if I use it down there even though there are cultures in it that are supposed to fight it off?

    Also, I really dislike the taste of it, so I added a little powder from my protein shake mix and it tastes amazing. Will doing that make the cultures not work?
    The Whole Foods clerk said there was no such thing as a sugar free yogurt though.

  7. QUESTION:
    How do I treat a yeast diaper infection on my 2 year old?
    I have not taken her to the daughter. It started out small and has been there for around five days. I have determine it is a yeast diaper infection because it very much looks like this :

    http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T081401.asp

    I have always used desitin for diaper rashes which by the way have been few and far between with my daughter. I also use vaseline every time after I whipe her and change her to create barrier. And we have always used 100% cotton cloth diapers so its def not a diaper irritation.

    I assume after determining it is not a regular diaper rash that the desitin would not help it.

    Is there something else I can buy or natural treatment? And has anyone delt with a yeast infection diaper rash before?

    Thank you in advance for sharing exp and help!

    • ANSWER:
      We had a terrible yeast rash here despite careful diaper habits, too. The usual creams won't do anything. Ask the pharmacist to steer you towards a good generic anti-fungal cream. You don't need a prescription; you don't need a brand name. It should sort itself out fairly quickly after that.

  8. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection on inner thighs?
    I had eczema on my inner thighs, and then I went to this one really gross house for a birthday party, the next morning, I wake up, and I have this huge rash all over my inner thighs and my first thought was eczema because I already had eczema, and we found out it was a yeast infection, and my doctor thinks it's cause of that house, it's been just about two months now and it's almost gone, but it's still wanting to come back and my mom doesn't seem to give a care, she won't call the doctor's or anything, she'll just tell me to stop wining about it. But what she doesn't realize is that my inner thighs have been burning and itching for the past two months and I have to wear long shorts every day, and I can't wear jeans because then my symptoms get worse. I don't know what to do! I need to be getting rid of it soon because I have to run in really short shorts for cross country in about a month and a half for the meets so I need this gone! It's held me back from running, swimming, and biking this summer. And when I did do these things I was in so much pain because of the infection. so what are some natural ways to treat a yeast infection? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      eat yogurt. the acids in it kill yeast infections

  9. QUESTION:
    need to treat raw skin from yeast infection?
    i just got over a HORRIBLE yeast infection. I had tried all sorts of creams and pills to get rid of it. I finally got rid of it the natural way via yougurt on a tampon. I have no yeast infection anymore (no burning, itching, swelling, or redness) the only thing is that the inside of my vaginal walls especially right near the opening are VERY raw and sore. this is because i had sex 2 times during my yeast infection. I understand that my yeast infection is gone. I only had sex before this treatment. But i know that my opening is still sore because it hurts when i insert the tampon. i need to get rid of this for valentines day. i have read forums about this from other women and they said that it takes at least a month of no sex to let the skin heal. but i need to valentines day. i did not spend 60 dollars at victorias secret for nothing. i dont want to ask my doctor how i can treat it cuz shes just gonna give me a medicinal cream and i know they dont work. i need a natural remedy to heal this skin. maybe unscented lotion? but you always have to be careful about what you stick up there. thats why im asking on here. anyone know what will help the skin heal that is safe to stick up there and is natural? you will be my lifesaver

    • ANSWER:
      Do not use lotion down there. It will mess up your PH balance down there. Uhm.....to heal the skin you could use some monistat cream. Don't put it inside you, but on the outside. That really takes care to heal skin and soothe symptoms such as raw skin and irritation.

      Also...there's something called VaginexII that's anti-itch cream. But its VERY soothing. And might help with your rawness and irritation.

      I don't really understand why you HAVE to have sex on valentine's day. But i mean, for your own sake you really shouldn't. It can actually irritate it down there some more and you actually get another yeast infection. A lot of woman talk about that happening and then you have to go through it all over again.
      But good luck.

  10. QUESTION:
    how to treat yeast infections?
    what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection ? antibiotics make me sick

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics actually cause yeast infections, not cure them. They cause an imbalance of the bacteria in your vagina by killing off the good as well as the targeted bad bacteria.

      Personally, I eat yogurt every day to help prevent them (antibiotics are only one cause). But when I actually have one there are some OTCs, like Monistat that work really well.

  11. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    i have a question about yeast infection. is it curable?

    and are any of these are true and safe to use to get rid of it?

    Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infection
    Vaginal yeast infection can either be cured orally or by vaginal insertion. Most of these home remedies have been tried and tested for their efficacy. You can usually cure yourself in the privacy of your home without the need to visit your gynecologist.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil is a known natural antifungal. Pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil on a tampon and insert into vagina. Do this morning and night. A couple of days should be sufficient.

    Garlic
    Make a paste of garlic pods and apply to skin around the vagina. It may burn a bit, but is very effective. This paste can be used for yeast infection in other parts of the body too. Another way to use garlic for the cure of vaginal yeast infection is to cut a few garlic pods fine and wrap it in a cheesecloth. Insert into vagina for about 20 minutes

    • ANSWER:
      For a yeast infection cure you have no further to look than your physician, your pharmacy, or your fridge. All three of these sources can hold just what you need for a great yeast infection cure.

      If we take our sources one by one, your physician has the ability to give you prescription medications which can potentially a yeast infection cure for you. For instance, the prescription drug Diflucan uses only one dosage and is supposed to be a particularly effective yeast infection cure.

      Other prescription yeast infection cures include Terazol and Gynazole, both of which are vaginal creams, and also Mycostatin which comes in the form of vaginal tablets or vaginal suppositories.

      All of these have side effects which you should be aware of when taking them, as do the next set of potential yeast infection cure, the over-the-counter variety.

      Up until the very early part of the twenty first century it is shameful to admit but there were no over the counter remedies available as a yeast infection cure. On the contrary, if a woman had a yeast infection she had to visit her doctor to get proper medical attention and to receive a yeast infection cure.

      So although the offerings in this department are still woefully meager, they are nonetheless there and available to anyone who doesn’t wish to advertise to the world, or their doctor, that they have a yeast infection.

      Although it is best if you get a proper checkup for your yeast infection it can’t be denied that with the availability of these creams a new world has opened up, and women can now treat such a simple problem without any attendant fuss or hoopla.

      All the available over-the-counter yeast infection cures work along the same principles as the prescription yeast infection cure, and most of them come in cream form, or suppository form. The more familiar brands include Monistat, Femstat, and Vagistat.

      Moving on next to the natural cures and remedies section, you will find that the number of alternative yeast infection cure methods are too numerous to do more than give an honorable mention here.

      To that end only a few of the well known natural yeast infection cure methods have been mentioned. To begin with we’ll start off with everyone’s favorite the yogurt yeast infection cure. It can be messy in the extreme to have to apply yogurt to the vagina, but it turns out that it is well worth the effort.

      Another natural yeast infection cure that is well known and used is that of the garlic cure. Being one of the wonder herbs of the world, garlic is good for many an ailment and is a particularly effective yeast infection cure, especially when used as a suppository.

      Next up you have apple cider vinegar, cranberries, oregano, cinnamon, curd, Tea Tree oil, lemon, lime, and Vitamin C. All of these can be used as an effective yeast infection cure and all of them work.

  12. QUESTION:
    Treating a vaginal yeast infection with Garlic?
    Ever since I have joined the military 2 years ago, I have been suffering from reoccurring yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. I have taken Diflucan (Fluconazole) and Metronidazole (flagyl) and every other medicine you can think of with no positive results. Anybody in the military knows that they don't really try and get to the root of the problem, they will just give you the medicine and send you on your merry way. I read an article on using a clove of garlic and vaginally inserting it to cure yeast infections. Has anybody ever personally tried it? What are some other natural remedies that I can use to treat a yeast infection so that I won't have to continually go back to medical?
    I think what the problem stems from is the fact that when I work, I'm sweating and slaving for hours and all the moisture down there isn't good. I only wear cotton underwear and I can change my underwear anywhere for 2-4 times a day because it's so hot. I work on helicopters and so I don't have the leisure of sitting all day in an air conditioned room.
    Monika, I use to be in the medical field prior to joining the military and it is a fact that garlic is a somewhat natural antibiotic. Recall how Louis Pasteur used it in his laboratory studies when coming up with an effective way of killing of bacteria and certain fungi. Allicin, one main compound in garlic, effectively fights off infection. I just want to know if anybody has ever tried it and the results they've gotten back from it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard of eating garlic to help cure the infection! Natural yogurt with live cultures is great. Insert 2tbl spoons in the evening and leave in all night. By morning the good bacteria should have killed a far amount of the bad bacteria. You can also eat natural yogurt, no less than 300grams a day. This could take 7 to 14 days to clear up. Once it has cleared keep eating the yogurt for a couple of weeks, even just 3 servings a week, to stop the infection reoccuring. Try wearing cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing also. This helps to air the area.
      I hope this has helped you.

  13. QUESTION:
    how to cure a yeast infection in my dog?
    My dog has a yeast infection. I had an old Golden Retriever a few years back who developed a yeast infection and the vet treated it with antibiotics plus flushing out the ears and then putting drops in them. It went away for only a short time. His health went down hill fast and he was in great pain from hip displacia. I have recently read up on a type of fungus/yeast infection called Candida Albicans. It has all the same symptoms. Part of the cure is to give an enzyme that is found in yogurt. It said to give the dog Acidophilus to build up the natural enzymes in the stomach where this infection starts. The smell from the dogs body and ears are horrible. He gnaws at his feet and skin all the time. I have read from some of you that the ear canal and the stomach are not connected but you still went on to say give the dog a non grain food. This fungus/yeast infection works its way from the stomach and makes its way to most parts of the body, especially the ears.

    So am trying the ear rinse of one part white vinegar to four parts water. twice a day, one Acidophilus a day and maybe some yogurt once a week. It can't hurt. I also give him a children s antihistamine once a day for the itching. We will see how much better (if any) this will be then what the Vet prescribed for my other dog.

    • ANSWER:
      your doing the right thing by giving them yogurt and the Acidophilus because yeast infections come from grains and also the stomach.
      You have read correctly as that is how the ears become infected is from the stomach and the yeast that builds up.
      YOu may give your dog more yogurt along with the Acidophilus.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant? (already tried plain yogurt!!)?
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have had a constant yeast infection since close to day one. I was told by my OB that it is normal and that I can get any generic brand to treat it at my local pharmacy. I am particular now that I am pregnant and wanted to go the natural way and eat yogurt to make it go away, it started to but now I have been eating yogurt for the past 4 months, on a daily basis, and it still hasn't cleared up!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't eat the yoghurt to clear it up, you have to dip it in a tampon and insert it for a few hours. Drinking cranberry juice is said to be good to. I know it sounds gross but honestly, that's the way it works.

      *Even doctors recommend that you idiot. Never seen embarrassing bodies? The doctors on there even said it's safe and can work as well as over the counter meds.

    Ella x is also a pathetic moron.
    no kendall, u may have exactly the same answer as other people but ur were bloody rude! There is no excuse for that...it doesn't take a lot of effort to be polite does it?! Chav.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are really smelly down there, something is definitely wrong! You have to tell your mother and go see someone. It's important. It's not embarrassing. Stuff like that happens, and what if it affects your ability to have kids later?

  16. QUESTION:
    Mini Poodle with an ear infection.. Any suggestions OTHER THAN A VET?
    I am a vet tech. I just got a Mini Poodle today and found that he's got an yeast ear infection. I'm looking for a NATURAL way to treat/cure his poor ears! I do agree that taking him to the vet is the best, so please don't tell me to take him, because I already know! I honestly don't believe the medication they will give him will fix it, because I had a dog years ago who had chronic ear infections and nothing helped that the vet did!

    I was told of some natural ways to cure yeast-infected ears, but I forgot! Does anyone know of NATURAL ways to treat his ears OTHER THAN TAKING HIM TO THE VET!! Please don't mention vet's because I don't believe that's something vet's can really do, it's a waste of money! I went to school for vet tech, so I'm not uneducated as far as veterinary care for animals!

    It is definitely a YEAST ear infection. The smell, texture, and color of his ear leather confirms.
    i WENT to school to be a vet tech. PAST TENSE. worked in a vet office as a tech for over 1 year. had major health problems that prevented me from working in the veterinary field.

    i don't have my books anymore, thus the reason i have to ask you idiots. look up Florida Institute of Animal Arts. I graduated from the vet course in 2008.
    also, as stated before, I GOT THE DOG TODAY! some old guy owned him and didnt want him anymore, im guessing because of the ear infection as well as the skin problems he has. so dont blame me for something I'M TRYING TO CURE THAT SOME GUY DIDNT WANT TO DEAL WITH!!

    its not that i don't want to spend the money, i have more than enough to spend. i would rather do it holistic and without him getting manhandled by random people that dont know what they are doing to begin with!

    • ANSWER:
      well ms. vet tech ... clearly you did not study up too well in vet tech school because there are no effective ways to treat an ear infection "naturally" ... if it could be done "naturally" your career choice would be obsolete ... the dog needs medication from the vet and you taking the dog from a guy who could not care for the dog only for you to take the dog and not care for the dog, what is the difference ... you have a yahoo answers account ??? and i really have to question your vet tech and dog ownership experience ... my dog swims in the ocean almost daily and does get recurrent ear infections ... two squishes of Surolan (http://www.universalpetmeds.ca/medications/Surolan/Drops) and the dog is good as new ... allowed to get out of control the dog is in extreme pain ... you do not take on a new animal that already has medical problems you can not address effectively (yahoo answers is not effectively) ...

    Weve been treating her for mange, which worked (castor oil after a bath) has worked wonders. has stopped her scratching n scrating.
    But, shes got other things, hot spots which weve been treating with better diet, garlic tablets (to purify and detoxify her blood) and regular baths.

    Hi, thanks for answers. We have had her to a vet, spent over £200 with no benefit.Lost faith in them am afraid.
    Holistic treatments have worked so far but wanted advise on treating the hotspots.
    I did lots and lots of research on the net before i treated her so am sure I am not causing the condition to get worse.
    I bought the garlic tablets from a reputable petstore so am sure thats not causing her any harm.

  18. QUESTION:
    period 4 days late, cramps, vomiting, but neg test?
    I had my last period june 23, 2008. I have a normal 29-29 day cycle. My fiance and I are not trying, but not preventing. We are sort of doing natural family planning. So if I was pregnant we would be happy, but if I wasn't that would be okay also. I have been having weird cramps ( not like usual period cramps), but my period is 4 days late. I have had a low grade fever 99.3. I also just treated a yeast infection, so I don't know if that has anything to do with my late period. MY BB's have been sore, but they get that way around the time of my period too. I ended feeling queasy yesterday and actually threw up, which I have not done since i was pregnant with my son travis.I have been constipated also.I have been tired, not anymore stressed than usual. As far as I know I do not have any hormonal problems or illnesses. I really don't know why my period is late. I ovulated around july 7-9. Also my cervix is tightly closed ( more than usual), but not too high, not hard, but not really soft either. I have taken a 4 hpt all negative, starting the 1 st day of my missed period. I cannot go to my obgyn, cause he said to wait and see if I miss my next period or get positive hpt. What is going on with my period? If you have any ideas let me know. ( sorry about the TMI)
    i would like to add also that the cramps feel like little pinches, did any of you get cramps like that in early pregnancy?

    • ANSWER:
      I would say if you have insurance go to an emergency room. This is what happened to me too. I went in complaining of different things and they did several blood tests. I told them I could also be pregnant, so they took a blood test. Blood tests do not lie! They confirmed that I was pregnant, I was 5 weeks along :)

  19. QUESTION:
    how do i get my doctor to see beyond blood tests?
    as i said on another question i suspect i have pcos,my doctor has run blood tests for these,and blood sugar-diabetes,thyroid etc.
    as far as my doctor is concerned because blood tests dont show anythinng up i am fine.
    basiclly my syptoms dont exist as far as she is concerned !my syptoms are menstual differculties,very light,with pms,weightgain,skin rashes ,yeast infections,tiredness,sugar cravings, spots.
    have treated myself with herbal remedies,but my weightgain ,worrys me and i feel if she gave me a diagnosis she would be able to prescribe metformin to bring my insulin levels down so i can lose weight easier.have a family history with diabetes,aunt with type 1 and father with type 2 although he wasnt overweight until they started him on insulin,so i am worried i may be headed the same way.should i turn to natural practioners instead ?
    thanks for any advice :)
    also just to say it very differcult to change gp in my area ,all the surgerys are oversubscribed.a friend of mine had terrible trouble changing,and her new isnt much better.i like the surgery im with not the doctor .also no i havent had a three day test what is that ?had an overnight fasting one around 10yrs ago? :)
    i dont eat a lot of sugar,altough i get sugar and carb craving s.i eat a relativaly healthy diet! :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you feel that your doctor is not giving you the proper attention you feel you need, I suggest getting a second opinion. If you like your current doctor and don't want a new one, atleast see a different doctor regarding this issue and then continue to see your regular Dr. when needed.

      My mom was having her own set of issues a couple of years ago. It took her three doctors until she found the one that actually listened to her and didn't think she was making up her symptoms. Turns out she needed surgey.

      Always trust your gut instinct!

  20. QUESTION:
    Is it safe for me to use the recommended laxatives with the Master Cleanse diet?
    Background: I am 26 years old. As a teenager (age 15 up till age 20), I had a major ordeal with anorexia nervosa, after which I dabbled in laxative-type bulimia. I abused diuretics for the most part, and sometimes laxatives as well. Three years ago I was constipated and took an ex lax and I literally felt like I was dying..my heart weighed a TON and wasn't beating right. For the past five years, however, I have been completely recovered from my eating disorder in the ways of my eating habits. I'm at a healthy weight and I eat more than enough to survive (2500 calories/daily).

    I am looking to use the mastercleanse as an aid to me in: quitting smoking, giving my body a break, and bringing my immune system back up (I have had two ear infections, which also caused a yeast infection [due to antibiotics treating the ear infection] in the last month). My concern about doing the mastercleanse is that I do NOT (and cannot) risk my health again if the laxatives in this regime would be harmful to me. I've looked and looked again at the mastercleanse recommendations, and it appears the laxatives are an INTEGRAL part of the process - not optional.

    My questions are whether:
    a) the laxatives are an ABSOLUTE must (whether forgoing this part of the program would render the MC much less beneficial or not beneficial at all),
    b) it is dangerous for me to take laxatives under such a program given my past,
    and
    c) the fact that the laxatives in this program are "natural" makes a big difference in my peculiar situation.

    Please only respond if you can answer all my questions directly.

    • ANSWER:
      To answer your question, I do not think that you should use laxatives based upon your history. That would just open up some areas that you may not tolerate well. Since you have had addiction/mental illness and bad reactions in the past these are all good reasons not to do this. You can just do the food modification portion of the MC and leave out the laxative part.

      And to throw in a retort to Patrick M...what an utter failure. You did not answer this question, all you did was spout your re-hashed garbage again. She was not asking about the effectiveness or validity but once again you have to stick your UNWANTED opinion in. And the reference to Arizona...you fail again. Those people were not there to detox, it was to alter their mental state. This has been done in the desert southwest by native people for thousands of years. This horrible case was done by a man that had no business doing this and is paying the price for his arrogance. Why do you care what people do to care for themselves? Is it that you don't want them to get scammed? Are you so magnanimous that you care for all humanity? If that is the case then you should start a group to repay everyone that has been scammed. That would be helpful. Not your pathetic rant.

  21. QUESTION:
    I'm going to the doctor soon, but I was wondering if anyone on here had anything to say?
    I've been sick for a while, having lived in a very stressful environment with my boyfriend and his parents. I'm 17 and I just want to be healthy. I feel a lot better now that I'm in foster care and in a much nicer place, but does anyone see any connection between all of these symptoms?

    When I was younger, I used to have alot of bladder and urinary tract infections. Now they've graduated into yeast infections. I think these were being caused by POS (Polycustic Ovarian Syndrome) because the doctor said I had cysts on my ovaries, and he said they were no big deal, but they were causing such bad infections that I've been sick alot and my entire body was so infected that a lymph node under my arm got swollen (quite far from my ovary!). About March, I found out I had the swine flu, and my boyfriend's parents wouldn't take me to the hospital, so I spent about a month in bed, whereas I hardly ate (couldn't cook for myself), could barely open my eyes because I was so fatigued, and the pain in my lower right side hurt severely (believed now to be the cysts). Now I also believe I have ulcers in my intestines (leaky gut syndrome) which may have lead to sepsis. I've had gastric ulcers sine about 7th grade, (I've always lived in highly stressful environments up until now), and now I'm also lactose and glucose intolerant. I also have a sensibility to sugars, caffiene and artificials (all of which I struggle too avoid). About January or Febuary, my boyfriend's parents tried to force me to take birth control pills and bipolar meds (I'm bipolar, and it has been untreated for about 6 years), and all of those pills made me sick so I absolutely refused to take them. I know it's suprising, but not having sex really DOES prevent pregnancy! They never believed it was possible, but I suppose I prved it to them. I used to use tampons, I don't know if that's related, but I'm trying to get everything I can because I believe it's ALL related. I eat very healthfully, exercise and do yoga daily, and meditate, which I all started about 7th grade because I was diagnosed as bipolar, but living between two irresponsible and unpredictable parents, I was never treated. Therefore, I've looked to holistic help and natural ways to help myself. I really don't want to take any sort of medication, but I do want help. I've done as much as I can, and continue to, learning about everything to help myself and better myself. Any advice is welcomed, and thank you for reading. :D

    P.S. Also, I just recently went to see a counselor and I have been diagonsed with (AGAIN) bipolar disorder, borderline personality, post-traumatic stress disorder and hyperglycemia. I'm trying to deal with all of this, but it's crazy. I don't believe any disease should define a person. I'm reading about all of those right now.

    Thanks <3

    • ANSWER:
      I've been in the OBGYN field for 11 years, and I can tell you that the PCOS is not causing your problems. PCOS can cause excessive growth of hair, irregular periods, generally you may be overweight, diabetes, infertility problems, darkening of the skin, and glucose intolerance. The pill will control the ovaries, a good pill is Yaz or Yasmin. It will also help with the PMS and stop you from producing any more cysts. You can always try the NuvaRing, a vaginal ring inerted into the vagina for 3 weeks. It also delivers a very low dose of hormone. Or if you are over weight even by just 5 lbs, losing that 5 lbs can dramatically improve the side effects of PCOS. Also you do need to be on meds sweetie, ALOT of the time the symptoms that you are describing physically can be because of your emotional state. Depression, post trautmatic stress, etc. can cause you to feel like S@IT all the time. So please listen to your doc, call your GYN doc and get yourself back to feeling good. You are too young to have to live that way and suffer. Good luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    Ways to get rid of a yeast infection in baby boys?
    My son is one (15 mos) and has a yeast infection AGAIN. He's got the little red bumps and is very red, blotchy on his penis/testicals. I took him to the doctor and was recommended lotrimen, which fine, worked okay last time. But it didn't work great by any means, I thought, so I was just wondering if there's any other, maybe more natural/fast-healing ideas you fantastic geniuses have out there? I am letting him air out more, and trying to be more careful about not letting his diapers get wet. I'd really appreciate it, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast diaper rashes are common in both boys and girls, so ignore the first person (as I assume you will)

      Firstly if you want to use OTC creams there are three main drugs so you might just want to use a different ones. I find Miconazole works best.

      If you are breastfeeding you should always treat mom and baby together (with natural treatments listed below there is basically no risks/side effects). If this is a recurrent problem for baby treating it orally is a must.

      Grapefruit Seed Extract is probably the most effective and most researched. It can be used orally and topically (and should probably be used both)

      Probiotics: returning the flora balance will kill of the yeast. It can be taken orally and applied topically. If you crack open the capsules most kids will just eat the powder no problem as it is quite sweet. Just be aware that most brands are sold in a lactose base, in case this is a concern. The dose I was told is 1 capsule twice a day on an empty stomach for adults, 1/2 capsule twice a day for kids. Though there really isn't a risk of overdosing.

      Vinegar: Some people take cider vinegar -don't know if that works. However vinegar douches are useful for women, and can possible be used for babies just use caution in case it burns (if the rash is severe). Also put 1/3 cup in the rinse of your laundry to kill yeast. Bleach in concentrations safe for laundry will not kill yeast. Vinegar is also a natural fabric softener and deodorizer, your laundry won't smell of vinegar.

      Baking soda in the bath water can also change the pH enough to kill Yeast and it will soothe and prevent itching.

      Note: Genetian Violet you will note I didn't mention this, and for very good reason it is NOT a natural cure, it is a commercial chemical that happens to kill yeast. It has been linked to mouth cancer though this is far from proven.

  6. QUESTION:
    can your period get rid of a yeast infection?
    wat r natural ways to get rid of the a yeast infection natural ways

    • ANSWER:
      1. Eat lots of garlic. Garlic is an agent known to posses a natural anti-fungal property that can do wonders in helping to get rid of your yeast infection. Of course, there are added benefits to your overall health by eating garlic on a daily basis, such as lowered cholesterol.

      2. Try to avoid taking antibiotics. Antibiotics can easily change the soft balance in your chemical makeup by holding down the naturally observed good bacteria (this is what helps maintain the yeast and candida under control). Only take antibiotics when absolutely needed.

      3. Eat plenty of yogurt. This is probably the most talked about treatment available for those suffering from yeast infections. The yogurt should be applied 3 to 5 times a day until the yeast infection is completely gone.

      4. White vinegar. This is very much like the yogurt in that is should be applied 3 to 5 times a day for no more than 1 week. A capful of white vinegar should do the job. This is also a very popular remedy.

      Hope this helps.

  7. QUESTION:
    natural way of getting rid of a yeast infection?
    HELP, im way to embarrased to go to a doctor or my parents HELP

    • ANSWER:

      A way to naturally help prevent yeast infections is probiotics, found in yogurt.
      Look it up online there are lots of natural ways. Plus you can get thinsg like Canesten from drug stores

  8. QUESTION:
    Natural way to get rid of a yeast infection?
    Please and thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't wear tight underwear.
      Eat lots of yogurt, and in the shower get some plain yogurt and rub it in your lower region, wait 5 minutes or so, and then wash it off. (You can also use keefer a yogurt type of drink)
      Don't eat lots of sugar, it only feeds the yeast infection.
      Also, you can go to a health food store and buy some asidopholus milk and douch it down there a few times a day.
      To soothe it, take a warm bath and put four tea-spoons of baking soda in there, just swish it down there.

      If that fails, just get some monistat.

  9. QUESTION:
    i know that eating yogurt is the natural way to get rid of a yeast infection but how much should i eat a day?

    • ANSWER:
      The yogurt you need to eat is the unsweetened kind that contains active bacteria. Many commercial brands do not contain live acidophilus so you have to read labels to find the right kind. A health food store may be your best option. You can also apply the yogurt directly to the vagina. The idea to use a tampon was correct, but put the yogurt on the tampon and insert into your vagina. Remove the tampon after an hour or two. Do not leave in for an extended period of time. Unsweetened yogurt doesn't necessarily taste that good so one 6-8 ounce container per day is going to be plenty. Don't add anything to it as sugar (including fructose found in fruit) will feed the bacteria in your yeast infection.

  10. QUESTION:

      Hope it works for u too!

  11. QUESTION:
    whats a natural way to get rid of a yeast infection?
    For males?

    • ANSWER:
      I dont know if it works for men but I have heard of women using plain yogurt.. I know personally would just go to the doctor. But who knows it might work for males too.. Good luck..

  12. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to naturally get rid of a yeast infection?
    Do I have to put crap into my body, like monistat 1, to get rid of a yeast infection, or can I use an alternative, natural, unharmful method which is safe for my body?

    • ANSWER:
      The best way is by eating yogurts that have healthy bacterias. .Sometimes the pH levels get unbalances. Water and vinegar Douche works well also. See this link that's super helpful. Good luck we all go through it.

    I've gotten what appears a yeast affection. I don't want to take vagasil or any other medication. From your experience, is there any natural ways of getting rid of it and how long would it itake?

    • ANSWER:
      Why don't you want to take any medication for it? It works so well.
      I had one of those after a course of antibiotics. :O

  16. QUESTION:
    Is it okay when you have a yeast infection?
    Is it okay to put hot water on your vagina when you have a yeast infection to sooth it and clean it? And what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Put some live (bio-active) yogurt on a tampon, insert and remove after an hour. The bacteria in the yogurt are the same type that naturally live in the vagina. Thrush happens when the normal bacteria in the vagina are disturbed for some reason, such as antibiotic use, allowing overgrowth of yeast.

Any suggestions??

    • ANSWER:
      You should go to your doctor and have them test because it might not be a yeast infection - yeast usually has a white discharge, whereas bacterial vaginosis has a yellow discharge. Both are common in pregnancy, but bv is treated with antibiotics, and can be dangerous in pregnancy where a yeast infection is harmless to pregnancy and can sometimes be cured by eating lots of yogurt with active cultures in it, or by the actual yeast infection treatments like monistat. Only your doctor can tell you for sure which you have.

  20. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    okay so stupid me, left a pad on or a few days and then it smelled really bad, i removed it took a shower, and no more smell! but ever since then i have been a little itchy.. not constant, just every once in a while. no smell, and no unusual discharge.

    oh yea not sexually active so can't be std

    so i really don't want to go thru the hassle of telling my mom, so i was hoping that there was a natural way to cure it? also if not cured what could happen??
    would hydrocortisone cream work?? i have that...

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have a discharge, you probably don't have a yeast infection. It's probably just an irritation. I would just use a soap that is ph balanced (you can find those at the health food store). Also, it's a little messy but plain organic yogurt might help with the discomfort if you want to go the "natural" way.

      I don't think I would use the hydrocortisone on that area of your body unless you check with your doctor first.

      If this condition doesn't go away in a week or so, I would tell your mom and maybe call a doctor.

      Good luck

  21. QUESTION:
    Does anybody know if forces of natures (yeast infection no more) really work?
    im trying to find a natural way of getting rid of this yeast infection i have ordered this product and i have got good and bad results on it i just wanted to know from somebody plz plz help me or do anybody have a Natural remedies that could get rid of this quickly
    i mean i have got good and bad reviews from other ppl on this

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of that brand, but if it's going to effectively fight yeast, it should have some combination of Probiotics, Caprylic Acid and/or Grapefruit Seed Extract... those are some of the best nutrients to use in conjunction to fight yeast.
      If you wanted to have the best impact, the Probiotic supplement should typically be one with 30+ billion viable organisms from several strains... less than that will take longer to fight the yeast enough to stop the overgrowth. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  22. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?how to get rid of it?home remedies?
    ive tried over the couunter products and i dont have time for a doctor, its been on and off for a long time now and im just a very busy person so i do forget about it alot which is very sad but juggling kids and work is hard.whats a natural way to get rid of this? any home remedie suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      If over the counter products aren't working then it's probably not a yeast infection, it's something else so you should see a doctor. One remedy is dipping a tampon in plain yogurt then putting it in your vagina for like a half an hour then washing yourself after.

  24. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant? (already tried plain yogurt!!)?
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have had a constant yeast infection since close to day one. I was told by my OB that it is normal and that I can get any generic brand to treat it at my local pharmacy. I am particular now that I am pregnant and wanted to go the natural way and eat yogurt to make it go away, it started to but now I have been eating yogurt for the past 4 months, on a daily basis, and it still hasn't cleared up!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't eat the yoghurt to clear it up, you have to dip it in a tampon and insert it for a few hours. Drinking cranberry juice is said to be good to. I know it sounds gross but honestly, that's the way it works.

      *Even doctors recommend that you idiot. Never seen embarrassing bodies? The doctors on there even said it's safe and can work as well as over the counter meds.

    Heeeeeeelp Yeast infection !?!?!?!?!?
    so just recently i think i have gotten a yeast infection, i have got all the symptoms. e.g. cream cheese like discharge ,no odour, itchy/sore vuvla lips. im heaps heaps to embarrased to tell my mom and she is not the type of mother to talk about that sort of stuff.. as she was forstered as a child till she was 18 which ment she never bonded with her foster parents. and she ignors me when i talk to her about my problems. i feel alone (thats another story all together!)

    What i would like to know is ... is there any natural easy ways to get rid of my yeast infection WITH OUT PILLS etc etc

    thanks soo much guys UR LIKE MY FAMILY :D

    • ANSWER:
      None of the home remedies ever worked on me - tea tree oil, garlic, plain yogurt is more preventative not a cure....

      Send your mom a text to get you some Monistat 7 at the store to treat it, so you don't have to see a doctor.

      Different types of infections both of which you can get at any time, even if you aren't having sex:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva

  26. QUESTION:
    Do I have a yeast infection?
    A couple of days ago, I went to the bathroom and noticed a lot of this thick, pale, cottage-cheese-like discharge, which doesn't smell. Soon after, this crazy itching began in my vagina. I looked up the symptoms on the Internet and was surprised to learn that it seemed to be a yeast infection. I've never had a yeast infection before. I wanted to go to the doctor to make sure, but they don't have any appointment openings for at least two weeks. Understandably, I don't want to wait that long to get this taken care of. The different articles on the internet (I've read at least six) all say to go to the doctor if this is the first infection, since it could be something else, like an STD. I really don't think it's anything else - the symptoms match a yeast infection, but I'm not 100% sure. Am I in the middle of a yeast infection? Are there natural ways to get rid of it? If not, what's the best over-the-counter treatment? How long is this going to last?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,
      Not only have I had these but a bladder infection and cysts on my ovary's. All very painful.
      I have found the over the counter stuff to be a waste of money, however it has been some time since my last one, maybe they are better now?
      The best thing to do is go to a doctor, doesn't have to be your doctor (though it would be nice for it to be).
      After you get this one cleared up (if it is just a yeast infection) consider eating some yogurts,cranberry juice (the real stuff is the best and what I drink, though there is that cocktail stuff).
      Also tight clothing, jeans, underwear, swim suites also contribute to infections. So keep this in mind.
      Hope this helps and wish you well!!

  29. QUESTION:
    natural ways to control yeast?
    So, I went to the doctors the other day about something totally unrelated and she told me i had yeast on my lips, and that I am prone to yeast infections. I already knew this, but I'm getting tired of having to pay so much money to get rid of them, not to mention the itchiness. I already know about cranberry juice, but I want a way that will actually help prevent them, and I cant keep buying a bottle a day. I went to the health food store, but the only thing they had was 33 dollars, and for that amount of money i might as well just get the fix after the fact. I'm a student, and can't afford a lot. If anyone has any suggestions I'd really like to hear it. I've cut down a lot on pasta and bread, but unfortunately carbs are the cheap stuff...

  30. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection - How Do I Cure This Kind Of Yeast Infection?
    It begun as a vaginal yeast infection so I rinsed with cool water frequently and kept it clean - no soap for a little while and loose cool clothing. Then I went to the doctor - almost 10 days into the yeast infection and she gave me this one take pill that was suppose to take full effect 25 hours after taking. The swelling and inflammation and open sores all went way down and are almost gone as is. There is still that tough to get out little white almost oval shaped yeast in the creases of the vaginal area and in the center. Only noticing as of this morning the center of the vaginal area "exploded " in a way; the center of the vaginal area had a large clump of white mushy chunky stuff. This happened twice today. Of course I rinsed. The second time I rinsed my mom recommended to try using soap - an all natural moisturizing vegetable oil and goat milk for sensitive soap. This worked nicely.

    >>>>Anyway my concern is that the yeast is growing on my Tongue, on different areas of my skin and I suspect inside of me as well. My lips (on my face) feel so chapped and parched it's kind of painful to move them - it is yeast though. What do I do about this sort of situation? How do I cure a yeast infection that literally seems to be just about everywhere inside me and on me?

    I scrape my tongue and rinse off new growth frequently(body rinse and tongue rinsing too - always separate ). I even use a soap that seems to be helping.

    The entire house has been cleaned today - and cleaned well.

    I am 16. I have been sexually active before. What do I do to get rid of this yeast infection?

    Please help quickly.
    >> The sores have cleared up

    >> now the yeast is just growing just about everywhere in and on me

    • ANSWER:
      yeast can be a problem in the body. Oil of Candida helps kill it some. Stop eating yeast and start using pro biotic. Pills and will do the same as the yogurt with out the sugar.

      Probiotis help the most and in time will fix your system. If it gets worse see your Dr for stronger meds.

  31. QUESTION:
    how to treat yeast infections?
    what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection ? antibiotics make me sick

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics actually cause yeast infections, not cure them. They cause an imbalance of the bacteria in your vagina by killing off the good as well as the targeted bad bacteria.

      Personally, I eat yogurt every day to help prevent them (antibiotics are only one cause). But when I actually have one there are some OTCs, like Monistat that work really well.

  32. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection on inner thighs?
    I had eczema on my inner thighs, and then I went to this one really gross house for a birthday party, the next morning, I wake up, and I have this huge rash all over my inner thighs and my first thought was eczema because I already had eczema, and we found out it was a yeast infection, and my doctor thinks it's cause of that house, it's been just about two months now and it's almost gone, but it's still wanting to come back and my mom doesn't seem to give a care, she won't call the doctor's or anything, she'll just tell me to stop wining about it. But what she doesn't realize is that my inner thighs have been burning and itching for the past two months and I have to wear long shorts every day, and I can't wear jeans because then my symptoms get worse. I don't know what to do! I need to be getting rid of it soon because I have to run in really short shorts for cross country in about a month and a half for the meets so I need this gone! It's held me back from running, swimming, and biking this summer. And when I did do these things I was in so much pain because of the infection. so what are some natural ways to treat a yeast infection? Thanks!

    dude im only 13 i dnt really want to go to a doctor for sumthin like this
    what are some natural ways without meds n stuff to get rid of it..i heard about yoghurt but yer

    • ANSWER:
      From what you wrote so far and at your age, it could be smegma - Smegma is a very real substance; to maintain good vaginal health, you need to keep it from accumulating. Glands on the inner surface of the clitoral hood secrete sebum, an oily substance that lubricates the clitoral glans. When this secretion builds up, it becomes smegma, a thick white discharge with a cottage-cheese appearance. It also usually smell, don't know if that's one of the symptoms. If the smegma isn't washed away on a regular bases, it can accumulate and dry out, forming small hard kernels under the clitoral hood. The resulting irritation can be painful and may cause adhesion to form between the glans and hood. Preventing these adhesion is very simple: keep your vagina squeaky clean. This is common - especially at a young age.
      It might be some sort of bacteria like in Vaginosis, but I would assume at your age, it is not likely. Ask you mother, she should more since, she would able to see what it is. You don't want to get UTI - urinary tract infection (there are pills for it, though).

  34. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection? Need help? Fast!?
    Ok so i have a yeast infection for definite. But i am 14, so it's like woah embarrassment. I read that if you don't treat it immediately then you can have a serious condition. Is this true?

    I think i have had it about a year...and i want to treat it but the creams and pills etc are for 16 years of age and above to buy at boots etc.

    So i am like, how? lol i am really worried but i can't tell anyone because it's like amazingly embarrassing. I can't go to the doctors either. Coz i think you have to go with your mum.

    And also...

    My trousers stink...as soon as i have worn them, they stink. I have to spray them like all the time with body spray so the smell is covered.

    Somebody please help me...i don't know what to do? i am confused? Are there any natural ways to get rid of it?

    Thanksx
    kendall u bitch.
    no no, actually i think it may be a Bacterial vaginosis infection! I am pretty sure it is! Change the question to that please!
    Ella x is also a pathetic moron.
    no kendall, u may have exactly the same answer as other people but ur were bloody rude! There is no excuse for that...it doesn't take a lot of effort to be polite does it?! Chav.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are really smelly down there, something is definitely wrong! You have to tell your mother and go see someone. It's important. It's not embarrassing. Stuff like that happens, and what if it affects your ability to have kids later?

  35. QUESTION:
    Absolutely Disgusting Yeast Infection?
    I am twelve years of age and have not had my period yet.
    About a month and a half ago, I started to get vaginal discharge, and knew it was perfectly normal.
    After about three weeks, I had to buy some new underwear, which were a bit tight. I have started to eating poorly, and it started coming out greenish-brown and chunky like which completely grossed me out and I knew something was wrong. I have minor itching, and I use 'light-flow' pads to keep the discharge from getting into my underwear.

    I am most definitely not sexually active - ew.
    I was wondering if there are any natural ways to help get rid of this nast infection.
    The doctor said, "Oh you're fine. Just clean yourself and you will be good to go." That didn't really help in the least bit.

    Do you think sleep has anything to do with it also? I get about 7 hours of sleep each night- I know it's terrible.

    Thank-you!

    • ANSWER:
      (Way to be more articulate than some of the people on here twice your age, BTW.)

      Greenish discharge and fishy smell are symptoms of bacterial vaginosis rather than a yeast infection. With a yeast infection it's yellow/whitish and has a texture that will prevent you from looking at cottage cheese the same way ever again.

      Either way, natural remedies include any/all of the following:

      1. kill the bad stuff. I'm a proponent of garlic for this. Carefully peel the papery skin off of a clove of garlic - don't knick the surface. If your hymen's broken already and you think you'll be able to fish the garlic out again with your (clean) finger, go ahead and put it up in there overnight. If you're worried about getting it out, wrap it in a single layer of bandage gauze and tie a little tail of dental floss to pull it out with.

      2. put back the good stuff. Ideally there should be a population of friendly bacteria hanging out in there doing their thing, competing with the bad guys and keeping them out. Get plain, unsweetened yogurt and get some up in there. Sounds gross and crazy, yes. But it's soothing and it helps.

      3. if needed, try a water/vinegar douche to restore a healthy pH. If you buy it at the store, check the ingredients to make sure it does not have nonoxynol in it. That's a spermicide which is very irritating to a lot of people and likely to make the situation worse.

      4. if those don't work, google around for some other remedies. Maintain a health dose of skepticism when reading any medical advice on the internet. Or ask your mom what she'd do.

      5. to prevent in the future: eat yogurt regularly so that your guts have more friendly bacteria and less bad stuff that could reinfect you. Wipe front to back, don't put your fingers in there if you haven't just washed them, wear cotton panties, avoid tight pants, etc.

      Good luck!

  36. QUESTION:
    need to treat raw skin from yeast infection?
    i just got over a HORRIBLE yeast infection. I had tried all sorts of creams and pills to get rid of it. I finally got rid of it the natural way via yougurt on a tampon. I have no yeast infection anymore (no burning, itching, swelling, or redness) the only thing is that the inside of my vaginal walls especially right near the opening are VERY raw and sore. this is because i had sex 2 times during my yeast infection. I understand that my yeast infection is gone. I only had sex before this treatment. But i know that my opening is still sore because it hurts when i insert the tampon. i need to get rid of this for valentines day. i have read forums about this from other women and they said that it takes at least a month of no sex to let the skin heal. but i need to valentines day. i did not spend 60 dollars at victorias secret for nothing. i dont want to ask my doctor how i can treat it cuz shes just gonna give me a medicinal cream and i know they dont work. i need a natural remedy to heal this skin. maybe unscented lotion? but you always have to be careful about what you stick up there. thats why im asking on here. anyone know what will help the skin heal that is safe to stick up there and is natural? you will be my lifesaver

    • ANSWER:
      Do not use lotion down there. It will mess up your PH balance down there. Uhm.....to heal the skin you could use some monistat cream. Don't put it inside you, but on the outside. That really takes care to heal skin and soothe symptoms such as raw skin and irritation.

      Also...there's something called VaginexII that's anti-itch cream. But its VERY soothing. And might help with your rawness and irritation.

      I don't really understand why you HAVE to have sex on valentine's day. But i mean, for your own sake you really shouldn't. It can actually irritate it down there some more and you actually get another yeast infection. A lot of woman talk about that happening and then you have to go through it all over again.
      But good luck.

  38. QUESTION:
    I think I have a yeast infection, help?!?
    Well its been itchy, and it kinda burns. Do I have one? If so, do you know any natural ways to get rid of it?!?!?!

    • ANSWER:
      You probably do have a yeast infection, but if you're sexually active you need to go to your doctor to confirm - especially if you've never had one before. Many symptoms of yeast infections are also symptoms for STDs. Most STDs that cause these types of symptoms are easily treated.

      As for natural ways to treat it, go to your drugstore and buy Acidophilus pills. Follow the directions on the label. You can also eat yogurt, but make sure it's low in sugar. Stay away from sugary or high-carb foods.

      Your best bet is to go to the doctor though. It's common and nothing to be embaressed about.

  40. QUESTION:
    can a yeast infection make tears/holes wider? Can monistat make these things worse if you are sensitive?
    sorry about asking so many questions recently, I keep trying to figure out what's going on ..

    So I have a yeast infection, caught it early on so didn't have symptoms, just hurt to be touched down there with the swab at the doctor's and stuff..
    So I've been taking monistat 7, and today is the sixth day of using it..
    every day I look to see if it looks better, because at the beginning of the infection the tissue was white and extra-delicate and stuff. So when I look to see how the infection is doing, I am noticing that it's getting better in that sense, but other things are being weird and it's freaking me out. Like the 2 slits along the inside of the labia minora that I pee from, are getting longer each time I look, as if they were more like cuts than natural holes and it looks/feels like they're tearing the skin or something.. And before, I hadn't even been able to SEE the tiny hole that is the urethra in the center of them, and now I see it and it's getting slightly larger each time and looks like IT'S tearing/cutting into surrounding skin. The two hole/slit things on the fifth day of me looking, are almost CONNECTED now by a small tear or something.
    And I had a flap of skin near my hymen before that was torn I think, and it was there before, but now it's almost like there's a literal HOLE going through it, and it's gotten deeper and "tearing" closer to the top...

    Could I just be extra sensitive to the medication and that's happening?
    Or could that be from the infection itself?
    Or is this just normal..

    They did the lab work to determine the yeast infection the other day, but it won't come back for 3 weeks (I'm sure that's what it was though since the monistat has gotten rid of the whitish coloring on the surrounding tissue)... I'm hesitant to go back to the doctor so soon before the results come back though because they might just say to wait until those come in so they'll know if anything is wrong.
    My worry is that by the time they get in, since day by day these "tears" seem to be getting worse, there'll be too much damage to heal!! I never asked them about the tears at the appointment, because I had an infection- it wasn't SUPPOSED to look normal then, and even so it was still pretty close to the norm and this was last week! But now I'm just concerned because the infection is clearing up but there is skin getting cuts/tears/fissures...something.

    What's wrong with me?!
    I'm worried that by sunday my urethra slit things will be going from top to bottom running the length of the minora and my hymen will be a mess with random flaps of skin tearing in different directions all the way up to the urethra, way further up than it is supposed to, and I've never even had sex!

    • ANSWER:
      Wow... I'm not sure what you're describing, but it doesn't sound anything like any yeast infection I've ever known. I'd go back to the doctor ASAP. Ouch...

  42. QUESTION:
    Girls, Please Help! Yeast Infection...?
    so my doctor had told me that i do have a yest infection, but i am starting to think i don't because the ONLY symptom i have is that it smells really bad down there.so now i am starting to think that i have bacterial vaginosios. i just bought canes oral, & i took the pill a while ago, but with the cream i am wondering if i can kind of put it right inside my vagina? and what is the right way to wash your vaginal area? i usually use soap and water, but my soap has a strong smell, but i like to use it because i feel like i smell so bad down there...? should i try not using soap, how do i get rid of the smell? & one last question, is there any natural remedies for bacterial vaginosis?
    thank you so much!!

    • ANSWER:
      If your doctor ran tests and says it's a yeast infection then it's a yeast infection, he'd have told you if it was bacterial vaginosis. Just because you only have one symptom doesn't mean he's wrong.

      I am wondering if I can put it right inside my vagina?
      Yes, you can put the cream inside your vagina as well as in/on your vulva.

      What is the right way to wash your vaginal area?
      Wash with water only - using your hands to wipe between your labia.
      Your vagina is self-cleaning, part of it's cleaning functions is the pH of the vagina which is slightly acidic to kill off harmful bacteria and yeast, soaps are alkaline so effect vaginal pH and thus in turn effect it's ability to kill off harmful bacteria and yeast - using soap, washes, wipes, sprays, douches, or so-called 'feminine washes' will all effect pH so potentially cause odour and infections. You will only smell bad when you have an infection or imbalance in vaginal pH/flora - soap will cause you to smell bad, not rid you of bad odour.

      How do i get rid of the smell?
      Treat the infection, and you should smell fine.
      Follow basic hygiene rules - no soaps etc, avoid commercial liners/pads, avoid tampons, wipe front to back, wear white cotton underwear, avoid tight/synthetic clothing, wash daily, practice safer sex, keep a healthy diet, also if you're prone to yeast infections try taking acidophilus tablets.

      Any natural remedies for bacterial vaginosis?
      No, bacterial vaginosis is a bacterial infection so requires antibiotics.
      Sometimes your vagina can right itself, there are some 'natural antibiotics' (such as Goldenseal) but the best way of dealing with an infection is with antibiotics from your doctor. There are many natural remedies for yeast infections, but just go with the medication you already have. Don't attempt to treat an infection unless you know what you've got as otherwise you can do more harm.

      Go to ur nearest health food store and buy a yogurt called activ8 and if u can't find that ask a worker which yogurt has all 8 good bacteria then buy some cranberry juice and mix just a little bit of the juice with the yogurt and drink it...if u have a bad itch u can also put the yogurt down there overnight..the yogurt makes it feel a lot better..those yeast infection creams do not work but I promise this will..do this for a week and it should go away.

  44. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

  45. QUESTION:
    Reaccuring Yeast Infections-I have a few questions actually.?
    Symptoms

    Itching
    Swelling a little
    Sometimes it burns
    I have ALWAYS had vaginal discharge, but my parents think it's from when I was molested when I was younger (k-8th grade)

    Need to knows?

    I have been sexually active (I really don't want to get lectured on this, my parents know and we got over it. I also knew the dangers) with only one person, my boyfriend (we technically our virginity to each other, too.) He does not have any STD's and neither do I. BUT I was molested by my stepfather since I was little up until 8th grade. I am in 10th grade now.

    I have been on Loestrin 24 FE birth control for a few months. I have also been on the same kind for four months before I started again. I took a break for a month

    I have gone to the "girly doctor" once (they gave me medication for a yeast infection)

    I have had itching for a series of days twice now. It keeps happening.

    This is the fourth time in the same year that I have had a yeast infection (or something like one).

    I don't really wear tight clothing, but my underwear kind of is (thongs, boyshorts, nylon, heck I honestly don't really know...)

    I USED to wipe back to front a year ago because I couldn't get everything off (I have no idea why) but I found out that caused it so I have been wiping the correct way since.

    I clean myself "down there" when I shower and bathe. I shower usually every day but some days I don't have time so I skip a day or two.(I really have no choice) I have been told it is bad to clean myself there, and I have been told it was good.

    I have been having infections a lot lately. My mom says it's because of my underwear but I do wear cotton, too. I don't like tight clothing that much but I do wear it.

    Here are my questions

    Do I have a yeast infection again? My mom says she doesn't think I need to see the doctor. My doctor kind of creeped me out.

    If I do, could it have anything to do with my boyfriend? (I KNOW he hasn't cheated on me and I KNOW he doesn't have any STD's.
    Can guys get yeast infections WITHOUT having sex?

    Is it good or bad to clean my vaginal area?

    Besides Monistat and those medications like it, are there any natural remedies around the house I can use to relieve the itching and get rid of the infection that I can aply to the area directly and/or eat or something? (I am really poor, I can't afford to buy more medications for it.)

    Can having reaccuring yeast infections be serious?

    I'm really confused here...any information on what I should do and know about would be highly appreciated. I am willing to answer any questions. Just please don't be mean, I'm kind of freaking out here and I'm hoping that what I am having isn't serious.

    • ANSWER:
      A yeast infection is caused by the fungus candida. You need to be treated for it with an over-the counter anti-fungal cream. There are no other ways to get rid of it once you have it.
      While treating for it, do not have sex.
      Once it's cleared, resume sex as normal.
      If it returns, your boyfriend could also hav a yeast infection (yes, guys can get them, too) He will need to be treated, and you will need to be re-treated. No sex until symptoms are gone once you have figured out that you both have it. Thorough treatment is important or you will just keep reinfecting each other.
      Actually, yes, you can also pass the yeast infection without sex. If you have oral sexual contact with someone who has a yeast infection, you can pass the infection to your mouth. You will need to see a doc for a prescription to clear that up. (It's called Thrush) And, yes, you can pass that back and forth orally and sexually.
      Discharge is normal. It can be clear, watery, milky, thick or even snot-like (fertile mucus). As long as it does not have a strong odor, you are ok. The yeast infection causes a thick, cottage-cheese like discharge. Unless the discharge is green, yellow or has a bad odor, you are ok.
      If you have been molested, even though your bf didn't give you anything, you could still have gotten an STD from the man that molested you. Unless you have been tested for STDs, you should not consider yourself free of them. If your doc creeped you out, see a different doc.
      Over-cleaning can also cause itchiness. So if you are using a perfumed cleaner or spraying "freshening" sprays down there, that can casue the itchiness, too. Obviously you want o keep that area clean. Try a hypo-allergenic soap without fragrance. A lot of itchiness is caused from soap and fragrance.
      Eating yogurt has been said to help keep the balance of good bacteria in one's body.
      Good luck to you.

    ALL WOMEN HELP, doctors too!?
    Well, I need help knowing if what i have is normal vaginal discharge or vaginitis/a yeast infection?

If not is there any natural ways of getting rid of a yeast infection with out buy the products for it. Or can you buy something else that will get rid of it but it made for something else? Please Please Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      Every woman gets vaginal discharge, it's perfectly normal. It's your vagina's way of protecting itself from damage and flushing out bacteria. Some girls have more than others and often it smells a little too. Generally speaking, the discharge will increase when you're ovulating (about halfway through your menstrual cycle) or when you are sexually aroused. But having discharge every day is fine, and the amount of discharge you have will decrease as you grow older.

      If I were you I would wear panty liners to protect your underwear - they are basically very thin pads that you won't notice at all, but that way your underwear won't be wet all the time. Also make sure you wash your vagina every time you shower with a mild soap, that's an important part of general hygiene.

      If you ever notice the discharge becomes a chunkier white, and your vagina's lips become red and irritated and it really itches, or the smell is awful, those are signs of a yeast infection that needs to be treated. But it just sounds like regular discharge to me!

  47. QUESTION:
    Yogurt In Vagina if you're Lactose?
    Hey everyone. I've been having a very irritated vagina lately. But it's not at all like the pain of a yeast infection. Maybe it's from douching with water in the bath. But I was thinking, to kind of do a natural cleansing, would it safe for me to insert PLAIN yogurt inside me even though I'm lactose intolerant?

    I've heard a lot of success stories from women using this natural way to get rid of a yeast infection, and i thought seeing as it's just yogurt it couldnt hurt right? im just concerned im going to have some sort of reaction cause im lactose intolerant.

    i can eat yogurt regularly without problem, but is there a direct link to the blood line frm the wall lining?

    • ANSWER:
      OK, if you are lactose intolerant it means your body can't digest the lactose, so unless your vagina is going to digest the yogurt, then you don't have to worry!

      PS: it is a good , natural way-just dont leave it in for more than 1 hr. cuz its dairy ( and wear a pad cuz its messy)

    • ANSWER:
      Some ear infections especially ones without a high fever can heal by themselves. Used to be everyone took antibiotics for ear infections. There are now studies that show ear infections heal with or without antibiotics.

      Most Children With Middle Ear Infections Get Better on Their Own, Study Finds

      By Salynn Boyles
      WebMD Health News

      Reviewed by Laura J. Martin, MD

      Nov. 16, 2010 -- The best treatment for many children with middle ear infections may be no treatment at all, a review of the research confirms.

      The analysis found antibiotics to be "modestly" more effective than just treating symptoms with pain medication. But use of antibiotics was also commonly associated with side effects like diarrhea and rash.

      Researchers say the review, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, shows the merit of a watch-and-wait approach to managing ear infections.

  50. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of vaginal odor?
    I've noticed that my vagina has a very strong, very gross odor. It's been like this for as long as I can remember, and I don't have any considerable amount of discharge, and the little that I do isn't discolored, or having a strange consistency. I've also noticed that when I masturbate, the odor becomes stronger.

    I know the main symptoms of yeast infections are a strong odor, and yellow or green discharge. I don't have any itching or anything, so I'm pretty sure it's not a yeast infection. Also, I've heard that douching can cause odors to be worse, because it disturbs the natural bacteria.

    Is there any way that I can get rid of the foul odor without douching?
    How exactly should one wash there? I usually just use mild soap, warm water and a wash cloth.

    • ANSWER:
      you may have bacterial vaginosis.
      it's quite a common infection 1/10 women will get it some point in their lives.
      its a smelly (fishy, musty) infection that doesn't itch.
      it's caused by a change in the balance of bacteria in the vagina caused by: a change in sexual partner, strong washing powders, shower gels, douching etc
      it's also more likely to develop in women who have an iud (like me)
      it doesn't mean you're dirty, in fact its more likely to develop in women who clean down there more regularly.
      it clears up after a short dose of antibiotics given to you by your doctor, nurse, sexual health nurse.
      in some cases it will clear up by itself.
      washing it with gels etc will actually make it worse, you should just use water.
      it's not a sexully transmitted infection so no one else will have to be treated.


Natural Ways To Cure Yeast Infections

Written By: admin - Sep• 02•12

The best prevention for any bad situation is prevention. That goes for foul vagina as well as anything else. The foul smell in the vagina develops from bacteria growth in the vagina and the problem is commonly described as Bacterial Vaginosis. There are numerous factors that can lead to this condition. Some of them are: cigarette smoking, douching fluctuation body temperature, a frequent change in sex partners and your body may be subject to bacteria and germs. You can avoid vaginal odor by following some of the tips in the article below.

First, wear cotton panties. Keeping the area dry and clean is essential. Cotton panties lets the air pass through and lets the area stay clean and dry. It is important to avoid wearing panties made of synthetic fabrics because they allow the area to stay moist and damp. Bacteria will grow in these conditions causing a smelly discharge and a very foul odor.

Second, avoid excess douching. Too much douching can cause the natural balance in the vagina to change causing the natural lubricants that fight bacteria to diminish. It is best to wash the area with a gentle unscented soap. Cleaning the area with pre-moistened towels may be a good idea to clean the area.

A small amount of tea tree oil placed in warm water and then bathing with it can help vaginal odor. If used regularly the vaginal odor should disappear.

Lastly, vinegar can also be used to cure itchiness and bad odor. We suggest you placing about 2 tablespoons in the bath water and then bathing in it.If you do this on a regular basis your vaginal odor should disappear.

  4. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to cure a yeast infection?
    And how can I be feeling my best?
    I got it from taking baths too much...

    • ANSWER:
      Assuming you are talking about vaginal yeast infection, you could try Natural LIVE yogurt.The key is not the yogurt itself but the bacteria, lactobacillus acidophilus, in the yogurt. This helps the body maintain, or regain, its natural pH level. The yogurt needs to be introduced into the vagina with a tampon or syringe (minus the needle!)

      Failing that, an anti-yeast preparation like Canesten would be a rational choice. If it does not clear up then you must see your GP so he can take a swab.

  5. QUESTION:

    what the best way to cure a yeast infection all natural with no chemicals

    • ANSWER:
      L-lysine capsules. Insert one in the vagina at night, (make sure that they are capsules and not pills) as far up as you can get it. Also, take them by mouth four times a day, breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime, for three days. You can use this every night, but my infections always responded well to this form of treatment and were gone almost overnight. Candida lives on sugar. Don't feed your body any sugar and you should be able to heal this up in one or two days.

      L-lysine is an amino acid and helps to balance the system and change it from acid to alkaline through its binding properties with calcium which equalizes acid in the body. Acid can translate to "sugar" in the body. You can also douche with Apple Cider vinegar (1 part vinegar to 6 parts warm water) to help with the healing process.

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know a natural cure for a female yeast infection?
    I am tired of using monostat, because I feel that it has to be bad for me in some way, and I want a natural cure.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to avoid all yeast and sugar products ......... sugar will literally feed the yeast overgrowth allowing it to flourish......... ditch the alcohol and sodas and diet sodas too if you drink any .....and pump up your intake of fresh filtered water to at least 2 - 3 litres per day ..... antiobiotics, especially broad - spectrum antiobiotics will also kill the helpful bacteria which you need for a healthy gut ........ supplement with a good quality probiotic to rebalance gut flora ......... eat more alkaline forming foods such as leafy and green vegies, cold water fresh fishes such as tuna, salmon, sardines and whiting, organic nuts and seeds such as almonds and brazil nuts........ all these foods are rich in magnesium and will thus encourage the production of hydrochloric acid in your tummy aiding in digestion and effective elimination ........ eat organic brown rice and quinoa (prounounced keen ~ wah) as they are both a rich source of the B complex of vitamins and will provide you with the carbs you need for sustained energy and the quinoa is also rich in calcium and iron .......... Avoid sugars such as honey, molasses, fructose, maltose, lactose and fruit juices ...... avoid artificial sweetners and foods containing brewer's yeast - ie - alcohol such as beer, wine, brandy, whiskey, rum, ciders and root beer.... avoid baker's yeast ie ~ breads and rolls and pastries .... avoid mushrooms ... avoid fruits and vegies with any sign of mold growth on them .... avoid fermented beverages and condiments including mayonnaise, ketchup, pickled vegies and pickles, salad dressings (use lemon and olive oil instead), soy sauce and vinegar .... avoid all types of hard cheeses which are a pretty good source of mold.... avoid processed and smoked meats and fish, including hot dogs, sausages, luncheon meats etc....... these meats are processed with sugar, spices, yeast and other preservatives .... avoid canned bottled or frozen fruit and vegie juices cos they have loads of sugar and are commonly made from overripened or damaged produce; generally the skin of the fruit contains surface mold and rotten spots, which are pulverised into the juice... avoid dried fruits.... avoid coffee & tea as much as you can as caffeine will aggravate yeast overgrowth..................... you don't need to use medications to kill a yeast overgrowth ..... simply eliminate their food source and they will disappear on their own ...... if you normalise the bacterial flora in the gastrointestinal tract you will feel much better and in most cases won't need drugs ♥

  7. QUESTION:
    what is a natural way to cure yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      I always have ups n downs with my yeast infection and am still combating this myself. But I find avoiding sugary/carbohydrate filled food helps to reduce yeast infection. Reduce only, not virtual elimination. Then, I'm also taking garlic pills (1 pills after each meal). The reason I'm very interested with natural ways of combating yeast infection is because I've been using clotrimazole (creams, pills n inserted creams) for 5 years n wish to stop this unnatural medication. Besides, I don't know if it could have a negative side effect if I use this for too long. No doubt it clears it in 1-2 days but it recurs again anyway. So it gets expensive. Also, I plan to have baby 1 day n am not comfortable using these medications then. So, I'm still looking for the best natural remedy. I know that yogurt and cow's milk don't work for me. In fact they encourage more yeast attack. My yeast infection keeps recurring cos I'm unable to avoid sugary or carbohydrate foods. Also, my immune system isn't as good since I was a child. I'm the kind of person who'll have flu 4 times a year. I do indulge in some chocolates n ice-creams once in awhile cos I love to eat junk food. So, asking me to totally eliminate them is not feasible for me. I heard that eating butter can help. I did try eating the Walkers brand pure butter cookies (30% butter) n it didn't worsen my yeast infection. It didn't make it better either. So, at least there's something tasty that I can eat without worsening it. I tried the cheaper butter cookies (10% butter) that are higher in sugar content, but my yeast infection worsened into clumpy yellow cheesy substance. So, I'm stuck with the expensive butter cookies. I think changing panties twice a day helps. Also, powders made of corn powder doesn't work for me. Use regular baby talc instead, they help me to keep dry down there without worsening the itch. No sweet drinks. Lemon juice doesn't work for me. Douching with iodine doesn't work for me. Bifidus, lactobifidus or acidophilus doesn't help me. I think it made it worse. What I do when I wana reduce the yeast is cut sugary/carbohydrate filled food/drinks. When it's gone, I'll treat myself with sugary snacks and then it comes back. Then, I'll cut sugar/carbo again. Yeah, it's a vicious cycle. Sometimes, I over indulge, and it's back to clotrimazole again cos the natural remedy isn't effective when the discharge is clumpy cheesy. I don't use birth control pills, only condoms. I do cardio exercise 1 hr a week as I find myself getting yeast attacks more easily if I don't exercise. Somehow, potato chips are Ok with me. It doesn't worsen it. Of course, it doesn't make it better either. Seeing the doc is expensive n it still doesn't work. I already realised they also don't have the ultimate solution. I use Prolin (pH balanced 3.5, soap-free) feminine wash to wash my vagina. It's the only 1 I can use down there. I tried Dove, Sebamed and several expensive famous feminine washes before and they all don't work for me. Drink lots of plain water.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to cure a yeast infections without inserting things "up there"?
    I've never had a yeast infection before, but am beginning to believe I do. I really don't want OTC medicines...are there any natural remedies?
    Infection****

    • ANSWER:
      The diflucan pill is the fastest, easiest way to cure a yeast infection. but it's not considered natural. it's a drug prescribed by a doctor. Most home remedy's require putting something up there because in order to cure the yeast infection the home remedy needs to get to where the infection is, and thats inside your vagina. Soaking in a warm bath with a cup of apple cider vinegar for 30 minutes helps a lot, and using natural, plain greek yogurt and putting it on a tampon and then inserting it inside you for a couple hours helps also. those are the two best natural remedies i've tried that work.

  9. QUESTION:
    How do you come to know when you have yeast infection? Is there any natural way to cure it?
    The smell of vaginal discharge has been changed . It is smelling like rotten onion. No itching or any discomfort.

    • ANSWER:
      You don't have a yeast infection. It smells rotten and there isn't any itching. Those are signs of a bacterial infection or an STD that must be treated by a doctor. You don't have yeast. Yeast itches like crazy and sometimes burns and has no foul odor. I've had yeast many times and there is terrible itching as one of the first signs of yeast. If you aren't itching then you don't have yeast. Go to a doctor to find out what you have and they can maybe give you antibiotics to treat it. Using yeast treatments can only make your infection worse.

      If you ever do get yeast, try eating more yogurt and putting plain yogurt on a tampon and inserting that. You can also use a baby medicine dropper to insert the yogurt. The bacteria in the yogurt eat away the yeast. In your case though, you don't have yeast.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi well what u describe sounds very much like what is below so read on Ciao ♥
      What is vaginal yeast infection?
      Simply put, the vaginal yeast infection is the irritation of the vulva and the vagina. The underlying cause of this infection is the overgrowth of the yeast or fungus Candida. Although this fungus is normally found only within the vaginal area, an overgrowth can cause potential harm. Statistically speaking, vaginal yeast infection occurs very commonly. Of all the women throughout the world, around 75 percent of them are infected with this at one time or another.
      What people should be aware of is that every woman is under the risk of getting this infection. This is more so if one is: under a lot of stress, lacks the proper amount of sleep; has a scanty diet or one that includes too much sugar intake; pregnant and sick; taking pills for birth control; under heavy antibiotics; or has diseases like HIV and diabetes.
      -- A strange dense, scentless, milky like vaginal discharge
      -- Undetermined hurt during sexual intercourse, some slight blood spotting.
      -- Uncontrolled itchiness and a burning feeling in the vagina and the skin rounding the vagina (vulva).
      -- Undetermined puffiness of the vulva.
      -- An inflamed burning sensation during urination
      Regardless of how many or few symptoms occur, the infection may either be severe or mild, so one should consult a doctor as quickly as possible. This is because the symptoms for vaginal yeast infection are very similar to that of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as gonorrhea or Chlamydia.
      How can vaginal yeast infection be treated?
      Simply put, vaginal yeast infections can be treated and cured with the use of certain anti-fungal medicines that can come in many forms like suppositories inserted in the vagina, ointments, tablets and creams. The most popular medications are terconazole, tioconazole, nystatin, miconazole, clotimazole, and butoconazole. Most of these are readily available over-the-counter at various grocery stores and drug stores. Another known medication is fluconazole, and it can be taken per dosage as prescribed by a doctor.
      Unfortunately, like other infections, vaginal yeast infection may sometimes develop antibodies against medication. Thus, it is a must that one does not use these medicines unless she is completely sure of having the infection. Make sure that the doctor has confirmed it after a thorough check-up. Stick to the medicine prescribed by the doctor and stay away from dubious medical remedies.
      Self-Medication May Worsen the Infection - It is a must that doctors look into the condition before using any medicine. Pregnant women, those who have been diagnosed with vaginal yeast infection before, as well as those who have repeated yeast infection conditions should first check with their doctors before using any form of treatment. Should one plan to use these over-the-counter medications, it is essential that she understand and follow the instructions so that she will get the full effect.
      So as to avoid vaginal yeast infection, women must: Avoid using douches. Avoid using scented products for hygienic purposes like tampons, pads, sprays, and bubble baths.
      Change tampons and pads frequently during periods. Avoid wearing tight clothes and underwear that are made from synthetic fibers. use cotton instead, And take off exercise clothes and wet swimsuits as quickly as possible.
      Contrary to popular belief, it is very rare for one to contract vaginal yeast infection through sexual activity. It is when one's immune system is weakened that a woman becomes highly susceptible to this infection
      Vaginal yeast infection is a condition that can be treated with proper medication and good hygiene practices.

  12. QUESTION:
    yeast infections. best way to prevent them and natural cures?
    does anyone have any good ones

    • ANSWER:
      Eat plenty of yogurt to prevent infection.
      Wear COTTON underwear for the liner not silk
      If you go swimming try not to walk around for hours at a time in your wet trunks and this applies too when you have on your "wet" gym clothes take them off as moisture "down there" can cause a yeast infection.
      Do not use chemical deodorant or talc products on the vagina, as they can change the environment enough to allow yeast to flourish and grow. Lastly, if you still have recurrent yeast infections, look at your diet and see if eliminating high carbohydrate foods, like white-sugar foods, will lessen the frequency of your infections.

  14. QUESTION:
    How can I help cure my yeast infection?
    I don't really have the money to be spending on monistat and stuff, so I was wondering if there's any natural way I can help get rid of this infection. It's pretty gross I've never had one before and it's bothering me. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Probiotics are a popular natural remedy for yeast infection. They are live microbial organisms that are naturally present in the digestive tract and vagina. Probiotics, sometimes referred to as "friendly" bacteria, suppress the growth of potentially harmful organisms such as Candida, which is why probiotic supplements have been explored as a natural remedy for yeast infection.

      The type of probiotic being studied for yeast infections is Lactobacillus, especially Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1, and Lactobacillus fermentum RC-14. In some studies, low levels of Lactobacilli in the vagina have been associated with yeast infection. These can be found in foods like yogurt.

      The essential oil tea tree oil, diluted and applied topically to the vaginal area, has shown some potential as a natural home remedy for yeast infection. A compound called terpinen-4-ol in tea tree oil appears to be responsible

  17. QUESTION:
    how to cure a yeast infection in my dog?
    My dog has a yeast infection. I had an old Golden Retriever a few years back who developed a yeast infection and the vet treated it with antibiotics plus flushing out the ears and then putting drops in them. It went away for only a short time. His health went down hill fast and he was in great pain from hip displacia. I have recently read up on a type of fungus/yeast infection called Candida Albicans. It has all the same symptoms. Part of the cure is to give an enzyme that is found in yogurt. It said to give the dog Acidophilus to build up the natural enzymes in the stomach where this infection starts. The smell from the dogs body and ears are horrible. He gnaws at his feet and skin all the time. I have read from some of you that the ear canal and the stomach are not connected but you still went on to say give the dog a non grain food. This fungus/yeast infection works its way from the stomach and makes its way to most parts of the body, especially the ears.

    So am trying the ear rinse of one part white vinegar to four parts water. twice a day, one Acidophilus a day and maybe some yogurt once a week. It can't hurt. I also give him a children s antihistamine once a day for the itching. We will see how much better (if any) this will be then what the Vet prescribed for my other dog.

    • ANSWER:
      your doing the right thing by giving them yogurt and the Acidophilus because yeast infections come from grains and also the stomach.
      You have read correctly as that is how the ears become infected is from the stomach and the yeast that builds up.
      YOu may give your dog more yogurt along with the Acidophilus.

  18. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection - How Do I Cure This Kind Of Yeast Infection?
    It begun as a vaginal yeast infection so I rinsed with cool water frequently and kept it clean - no soap for a little while and loose cool clothing. Then I went to the doctor - almost 10 days into the yeast infection and she gave me this one take pill that was suppose to take full effect 25 hours after taking. The swelling and inflammation and open sores all went way down and are almost gone as is. There is still that tough to get out little white almost oval shaped yeast in the creases of the vaginal area and in the center. Only noticing as of this morning the center of the vaginal area "exploded " in a way; the center of the vaginal area had a large clump of white mushy chunky stuff. This happened twice today. Of course I rinsed. The second time I rinsed my mom recommended to try using soap - an all natural moisturizing vegetable oil and goat milk for sensitive soap. This worked nicely.

    >>>>Anyway my concern is that the yeast is growing on my Tongue, on different areas of my skin and I suspect inside of me as well. My lips (on my face) feel so chapped and parched it's kind of painful to move them - it is yeast though. What do I do about this sort of situation? How do I cure a yeast infection that literally seems to be just about everywhere inside me and on me?

    I scrape my tongue and rinse off new growth frequently(body rinse and tongue rinsing too - always separate ). I even use a soap that seems to be helping.

    The entire house has been cleaned today - and cleaned well.

    I am 16. I have been sexually active before. What do I do to get rid of this yeast infection?

    Please help quickly.
    >> The sores have cleared up

    >> now the yeast is just growing just about everywhere in and on me

    • ANSWER:
      yeast can be a problem in the body. Oil of Candida helps kill it some. Stop eating yeast and start using pro biotic. Pills and will do the same as the yogurt with out the sugar.

      Probiotis help the most and in time will fix your system. If it gets worse see your Dr for stronger meds.

  19. QUESTION:
    need help with my toddler..how do you cure a yeast infection?
    Hi,

    well i need some help..my son is 2 1/2 and NOT circumcised...he has recently started using his foreskin as a extra pocket aka stuffing cheerios ect in there (any advice how to stop that?)..any ways we think it may have gotten scratched or something ,irritated cause it got a lil read and lil bumps all over the head..i was concerned so i planned to take him to the dr..well the morning of i checked and the bumps had vanished..just some dry pieces of skin was there flaked off...so i decided not to risk the dr office in fear of what id catch..

    but im still concerned..it still looks a lil red..but im not sure if thats just him messin with it..or could he have caught a yeast infection?

    i tryed googling but cant seem to find info on this..

    i was thinking of just doing something more natural like yogurt..but not sure how much he need to eat..i even read i could put it on the penis..but i dont want to aggravate the issue..

    any one had to deal with this yet? any suggestions?

    i still breastfeed...so is there anything i could be taking that could help..

    thanks alot..i just dont want to ignore it (can yeast even get better on their own?)

    • ANSWER:
      Is he still in diapers? If not, it's pretty unlikely that he has a yeast infections because it needs damp to grow. Nystatin ointment or powder is what they usually use for groin yeast in babies but it's not available Over The Counter. Some powders men use for jock itch are antifungals and technically, yeast is treated with antifungals as well. Clotrimazole cream is an antifungal available OTC. Zeasorb is an antifungal powder available OTC. Ask the pharmacist if he/she thinks it would be ok to try one of those on a 2 1/2 year old with suspected yeast or if you should definitely get it diagnosed by a doctor first.

      I am not recommending any steroid cream. None of the above medicines mentioned are steriod creams or contain steroids. The only steroid cream avaiable OTC is hydrocortisone and I would never recommend putting that on a kid of any age's crotch....unless a doctor told me that the inflammation is so bad that there is no other choice. Some people (ie Mr C) should read more thoroughly before making judgements...

      Furthermore, yeast infections are never treated with antibiotics. Yeast is technically a fungus and not a bacteria. If it turns out to be yeast, it is going to be treated with an antifungal, like nystatin, clotrimazole, or miconazole. There is a new product out there called Vusion that contains miconazole(0.25%), petrolatum(81%) and zinc oxide(15%). It is an ointment specifically for the indication of diaper dermatitis from yeast. For babies > 4 weeks old but only available Rx.

  20. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection WITH odor?
    I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection (white cottage-cheesy discharge, itching, swelling, painful intercourse) but I also have a very strong odor (literally smells like garbage). So strong that if I take a shower in the morning, put on new panties, I can smell it half-way through the day. So do I have a yeast infection or something else, like a bacterial infection?

    I went to a sex clinic a month or two ago and they said that they see signs of yeast, so it was a yeast infection. But why the odor? After the sex clinic I took Canesten Oral but it didn't work... what can I do now? Are there any natural remedies for curing yeast and/or bacterial infections?

    • ANSWER:

  21. QUESTION:
    Late period + possible yeast infection...?
    I've never gotten a yeast infection before, but I think I may have one now. I've been on antibiotics for the past three weeks for an ear injury/infection, which I've read may cause them. I have a couple questions:

    1-what's a natural way to cure a yeast infection. I already eat two cups of yogurt a day. Anything else?

    2- My period's two days late. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. Could the two be related? Can a yeast infection cause your period to be late? Could a yeast infection cause a false negative on a pregnancy test?

    • ANSWER:
      I can't answer the question about your period being late - I've never heard of a yeast infection (or antibiotics) causing one's period to be late. But anything is possible.

      The antibiotics are probably what caused your yeast infection - that is very common. Especially if you drank alcohol at all while you were on the antibiotics - that's a surefire way to cause an infection.

      Acidophilus (the key ingredient in yogurt, also sold in pills and chewables) is the only real "cure for a yeast infection" but it is more of a preventative measure than anything. It could possibly cure a *slight* infection, but if yours has gone on for a couple of days, and is starting to really bother you, then you should probably get an Over-The-Counter cure at the drug store.

      Also, many women who are prone to chronic Y.I.'s find that the week prior to getting your period is the week that most infections start - something to do with chemical changes in the body. In this kind of scenario, many women find that a slight pre-menstrual infection will go away on it's own by the time the period is over.

      If yours is not too bad, you can always try taking acidophilus pills (the ones that require refrigeration are usually the best quality) and eating yogurt and waiting till your period comes and goes, to see if you can cure it without medication. If it gets worse instead of better, it's past the point of homeopathic cures - treat it with something like Monistat ASAP. (If you go to the doctor for the infection, she will prescribe something very similar to Monistat)

      Also, PLAIN, unflavored, sugar-free yogurt, applied topically, can help the symptoms. Apply before sleep & wear a pad.

  22. QUESTION:
    I've had a yeast infection for three years straight Part Two!!?
    Okay, thanks everyone for the advice, but I have one more question before I actually start this natural treatment to cure my yeast infection. Is it actually safe for me to be taking Acidophilus capsules plus Caprylic Acid and use RePhresh as well as eating yogurt?

    Would all of this harm my body in some way?

    Because too much of something (even if it's good) can harm someone, right?

    ALSO.

    I have the discharge symptoms, I have the hurting during sex symptom, I have itching when the discharge gets bad, the discharge does smell like yeast, I've been having digestive problems and I took the spit test and my spit looked weird like spiderwebs.

    But if I do all of this and don't have a yeast infection what will happen to me? Although I'm pretty sure I do because my gyno did lab tests and said I had one and then tried to say 2 months later that it went away but I still have the symptoms.

    What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      it looks like you have yeast infection and you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection forever then you must follow these tips:

      1) Eat yogurt!!!! It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      2) Douche with a solution of 1 to 3 tbsp. vinegar in a quart of water. Repeat once a day while having symptoms, but no longer than a week.

      3) Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      4) Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent.

      5) Try gentian violet. It's a traditional remedy for yeast and other infections, and can be found in pharmacies. Swab the area with it once or twice a day. Make sure to use a thick pad - it stains everything.

      6) Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      7) You must use herbal treatment. In that case Yeastrol is really good (probably the best) product that gets rid of yeast infection comparatively fast and makes you feel more confident knowing that it wont reappear again!
      And of course it is better if you use full course (5 months - if I remember correctly). For me it worked very fast + I dont get yeast infections anymore...

      I do not know if any pharmacies carry Yeastrol but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.yeastrol.com/?aid=221781

      good luck!

  23. QUESTION:
    Treating a vaginal yeast infection with Garlic?
    Ever since I have joined the military 2 years ago, I have been suffering from reoccurring yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis. I have taken Diflucan (Fluconazole) and Metronidazole (flagyl) and every other medicine you can think of with no positive results. Anybody in the military knows that they don't really try and get to the root of the problem, they will just give you the medicine and send you on your merry way. I read an article on using a clove of garlic and vaginally inserting it to cure yeast infections. Has anybody ever personally tried it? What are some other natural remedies that I can use to treat a yeast infection so that I won't have to continually go back to medical?
    I think what the problem stems from is the fact that when I work, I'm sweating and slaving for hours and all the moisture down there isn't good. I only wear cotton underwear and I can change my underwear anywhere for 2-4 times a day because it's so hot. I work on helicopters and so I don't have the leisure of sitting all day in an air conditioned room.
    Monika, I use to be in the medical field prior to joining the military and it is a fact that garlic is a somewhat natural antibiotic. Recall how Louis Pasteur used it in his laboratory studies when coming up with an effective way of killing of bacteria and certain fungi. Allicin, one main compound in garlic, effectively fights off infection. I just want to know if anybody has ever tried it and the results they've gotten back from it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard of eating garlic to help cure the infection! Natural yogurt with live cultures is great. Insert 2tbl spoons in the evening and leave in all night. By morning the good bacteria should have killed a far amount of the bad bacteria. You can also eat natural yogurt, no less than 300grams a day. This could take 7 to 14 days to clear up. Once it has cleared keep eating the yogurt for a couple of weeks, even just 3 servings a week, to stop the infection reoccuring. Try wearing cotton underwear and loose fitting clothing also. This helps to air the area.
      I hope this has helped you.

  24. QUESTION:
    Girls - I have a question about vaginal discharge?
    I am experiencing some different vaginal discharge than what I normally have. My vagina is not swollen, red, or burning, it is moderately itchy though, and I have a very thin, almost milky white discharge, but it's not a lot and it's not clumpy. I don't think it's a yeast infection, because I had one before and it doesn't look or feel the same. What could be causing this? I was taking acidophilus tablets over a period of a few months, but I didn't like the way they made me feel, so I stopped. Could this be my vagina trying to regulate itself again without the help of the acidophilus? I'm not really that uncomfortable, just worried. I'm supposed to get my period next week so should I wait until after and see if it goes away? Any input would be greatly appreciated, and please don't give me that website about natural cure for yeast infections - 1. I am 99% sure it's not one, and 2. that website is NOT helpful.

    Thank you!!!

  26. QUESTION:
    Does a yeast infection natuarally go away?
    I took ONE anti biotic pill perscribed to me and then I remembered that they can cause yeast infections. I'm not sure if I have one, I've had 2 my whole life but it's like... just a SMALL sign of one. I don't want to buy monastat because I know you're not supposed to use it if you don't have a yeast infection sooooo....

    I was wondering if there was a more natural way to cure it or if it will just go away ??

    • ANSWER:
      If the yeast infection is just a minor imbalance your body may sometimes correct it and it will go away on it's own, but if you are taking antibiotics for something it is important with antibiotics to take it the full prescribed time. Yes there are natural things you can do to help. You can help prevent a yeast infection with natural treatments while on antibiotics as well. Eating yogurt or taking probiotics orally or vaginally or both during antibiotics can help prevent infection while taking antibiotics. If you are prone to them this is a very good idea.

      Look at the links I included below. The first link under sources is an article, it will help you understand what happens causing vaginal infections and what can help. The next one is a study that was done showing that vaginal probiotics help with vaginal infections. And the next two are links to a couple products. I personally have used the Probiostat from Lorna Vanderhaeghe's line of products and found it worked well for me. You can also take probiotics internally to help from the inside as well. You can also do things like take organic Oregano oil. For Oregano Oil you put drops under the tongue and hold it there as long as you can (it may have a burning sensation) and then swallow, follow with some water if needed. The higher the concentration the better. Oregano oil stimulates the immune system, is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. When taking oregano oil it is a good idea to take probiotics orally apart from them (eg. oregano oil in the morning and probitics at night). You can also take Colloidal Silver internally as well. It can also be used vaginally for infections followed later in the day by vaginal probiotics, do the Colloidal Silver in the morning (using something that can get it high up vaginally, ...douche applicator) and the probiotics at night right before bed. You can use the Colloidal Silver other times during the day as well, just separate it by a few (5) hours from the probiotics so it doesn't just kill the healthy bacteria of the probiotics. Colloidal Silver has lots of applications, see the links below for some info. Regular douching is not recommended as the normal solution can wash out the healthy bacteria, but using the applicator to administer a treatment can be helpful and should be followed with vaginal probiotics to replenish the healthy bacteria.

      Basically you need to kill the infection somehow, but you also need to replenish the healthy bacteria and PH balance to maintain vaginal health. The PH of the vagina needs to be slightly acidic (3.8 to 4.5) for a healthy environment anything outside of that in either direction on the scale allows for infection.

      Best of luck, if you have further questions feel free to email me :)

  27. QUESTION:
    Do I have a yeast infection?
    I recently lost my virginity and have had sex multiple times since. Soon after, my vagina started itching and producing a not natural (white and cheesy looking, very gross) discharge. I believe I have a yeast infection from the friction, but I am also afraid I may have some sort of STD.

    What are ways to cure a yeast infection? How do I know that this is a yeast infection and not something else? Obviously, this is something I should ask a doctor about, and I will if the problem persists, but I would like to know the public's opinion. :)

    Thank you!

      Different types of infections:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor

      Signs of trichomoniasis
      A watery, yellowish or greenish bubbly discharge
      An unpleasant odor
      Pain and itching when urinating
      Most apparent after your period
      See a doctor

      Unless of course it's an STD. Good luck to you.

  29. QUESTION:
    how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    okay so stupid me, left a pad on or a few days and then it smelled really bad, i removed it took a shower, and no more smell! but ever since then i have been a little itchy.. not constant, just every once in a while. no smell, and no unusual discharge.

    oh yea not sexually active so can't be std

    so i really don't want to go thru the hassle of telling my mom, so i was hoping that there was a natural way to cure it? also if not cured what could happen??
    would hydrocortisone cream work?? i have that...

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have a discharge, you probably don't have a yeast infection. It's probably just an irritation. I would just use a soap that is ph balanced (you can find those at the health food store). Also, it's a little messy but plain organic yogurt might help with the discomfort if you want to go the "natural" way.

      I don't think I would use the hydrocortisone on that area of your body unless you check with your doctor first.

      If this condition doesn't go away in a week or so, I would tell your mom and maybe call a doctor.

      Good luck

      About the yeast infection...no reason not to tell your mom. If you have had to take antibiotics, that is possibly why you got it. There is inexpensive OTC treatment that comes in like 3 doses(days), 5 days, and a one day. BTW, You can have yeast infection and not have all the symptoms.

    I am a vet tech. I just got a Mini Poodle today and found that he's got an yeast ear infection. I'm looking for a NATURAL way to treat/cure his poor ears! I do agree that taking him to the vet is the best, so please don't tell me to take him, because I already know! I honestly don't believe the medication they will give him will fix it, because I had a dog years ago who had chronic ear infections and nothing helped that the vet did!

    I was told of some natural ways to cure yeast-infected ears, but I forgot! Does anyone know of NATURAL ways to treat his ears OTHER THAN TAKING HIM TO THE VET!! Please don't mention vet's because I don't believe that's something vet's can really do, it's a waste of money! I went to school for vet tech, so I'm not uneducated as far as veterinary care for animals!

    It is definitely a YEAST ear infection. The smell, texture, and color of his ear leather confirms.
    i WENT to school to be a vet tech. PAST TENSE. worked in a vet office as a tech for over 1 year. had major health problems that prevented me from working in the veterinary field.

    i don't have my books anymore, thus the reason i have to ask you idiots. look up Florida Institute of Animal Arts. I graduated from the vet course in 2008.
    also, as stated before, I GOT THE DOG TODAY! some old guy owned him and didnt want him anymore, im guessing because of the ear infection as well as the skin problems he has. so dont blame me for something I'M TRYING TO CURE THAT SOME GUY DIDNT WANT TO DEAL WITH!!

    its not that i don't want to spend the money, i have more than enough to spend. i would rather do it holistic and without him getting manhandled by random people that dont know what they are doing to begin with!

    • ANSWER:
      well ms. vet tech ... clearly you did not study up too well in vet tech school because there are no effective ways to treat an ear infection "naturally" ... if it could be done "naturally" your career choice would be obsolete ... the dog needs medication from the vet and you taking the dog from a guy who could not care for the dog only for you to take the dog and not care for the dog, what is the difference ... you have a yahoo answers account ??? and i really have to question your vet tech and dog ownership experience ... my dog swims in the ocean almost daily and does get recurrent ear infections ... two squishes of Surolan (http://www.universalpetmeds.ca/medications/Surolan/Drops) and the dog is good as new ... allowed to get out of control the dog is in extreme pain ... you do not take on a new animal that already has medical problems you can not address effectively (yahoo answers is not effectively) ...

  32. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?
    i have a question about yeast infection. is it curable?

    and are any of these are true and safe to use to get rid of it?

    Home Remedies for Treating Yeast Infection
    Vaginal yeast infection can either be cured orally or by vaginal insertion. Most of these home remedies have been tried and tested for their efficacy. You can usually cure yourself in the privacy of your home without the need to visit your gynecologist.

    Tea Tree Oil
    Tea tree oil is a known natural antifungal. Pour a few drops of undiluted tea tree oil on a tampon and insert into vagina. Do this morning and night. A couple of days should be sufficient.

    Garlic
    Make a paste of garlic pods and apply to skin around the vagina. It may burn a bit, but is very effective. This paste can be used for yeast infection in other parts of the body too. Another way to use garlic for the cure of vaginal yeast infection is to cut a few garlic pods fine and wrap it in a cheesecloth. Insert into vagina for about 20 minutes

    • ANSWER:
      For a yeast infection cure you have no further to look than your physician, your pharmacy, or your fridge. All three of these sources can hold just what you need for a great yeast infection cure.

      If we take our sources one by one, your physician has the ability to give you prescription medications which can potentially a yeast infection cure for you. For instance, the prescription drug Diflucan uses only one dosage and is supposed to be a particularly effective yeast infection cure.

      Other prescription yeast infection cures include Terazol and Gynazole, both of which are vaginal creams, and also Mycostatin which comes in the form of vaginal tablets or vaginal suppositories.

      All of these have side effects which you should be aware of when taking them, as do the next set of potential yeast infection cure, the over-the-counter variety.

      Up until the very early part of the twenty first century it is shameful to admit but there were no over the counter remedies available as a yeast infection cure. On the contrary, if a woman had a yeast infection she had to visit her doctor to get proper medical attention and to receive a yeast infection cure.

      So although the offerings in this department are still woefully meager, they are nonetheless there and available to anyone who doesn’t wish to advertise to the world, or their doctor, that they have a yeast infection.

      Although it is best if you get a proper checkup for your yeast infection it can’t be denied that with the availability of these creams a new world has opened up, and women can now treat such a simple problem without any attendant fuss or hoopla.

      All the available over-the-counter yeast infection cures work along the same principles as the prescription yeast infection cure, and most of them come in cream form, or suppository form. The more familiar brands include Monistat, Femstat, and Vagistat.

      Moving on next to the natural cures and remedies section, you will find that the number of alternative yeast infection cure methods are too numerous to do more than give an honorable mention here.

      To that end only a few of the well known natural yeast infection cure methods have been mentioned. To begin with we’ll start off with everyone’s favorite the yogurt yeast infection cure. It can be messy in the extreme to have to apply yogurt to the vagina, but it turns out that it is well worth the effort.

      Another natural yeast infection cure that is well known and used is that of the garlic cure. Being one of the wonder herbs of the world, garlic is good for many an ailment and is a particularly effective yeast infection cure, especially when used as a suppository.

      Next up you have apple cider vinegar, cranberries, oregano, cinnamon, curd, Tea Tree oil, lemon, lime, and Vitamin C. All of these can be used as an effective yeast infection cure and all of them work.

  33. QUESTION:
    Is there a natural chlamydia treatment?
    I dont want answers that say just suck it up and take antibiotics, PLEASE. Thanks.

    I don't take pills, I haven't in 4 years. I really strongly believe that anti-biotics aren't the way to go for many reasons:
    1- They kill the bad bacteria, but they destroy the good too
    2- weakens the immune system, which isn't great during the flu season
    3- Produces a yeast infection after, which isn't that fun to deal with.. then I'd have to either get more antibiotics or an over the counter treatment.
    4- They are bad on the stomach.

    Theres just many reasons I don't think anti biotics are great, and I'm on the hunt to find a natural treatment for chlamydia. Please, if you know anything help.

    Its a bacteria, and so is a yeast infection. Why can a yeast infection be cured over the counter but chlamydia can't?

    Any feedback, except saying to just take the damn pills, are welcome.
    I don't trust my doctor anymore. I told him months ago the symptoms I was having, and he said it was a yeast infection. I asked if he could do a test or look at it at least and he said no, it would be fine. The only reason i found out is becuase I went for my annual. If my doctor would of checked it out months and months ago, I wouldn't have to worry about being infertile and having PID.

    • ANSWER:
      You're asking a question but you don't want an answer? I suppose you don't want to hear "No, there's no so-called 'natural' treatment for chlamydia" ? Sorry but there's plenty of things we don't want to hear in life: You'll get old, one day you and everyone you love will die etc. Your reasons for not wanting to take antibiotics are ALL wrong:

      1- good/bad bacteria. Your system will handle a few depleted good bacterias, just like it does when you kill them off by eating junk food once in a while.

      2- Immune system weakness is utterly trivial compare to the real and immediate risks you have from chlamydia

      3- Yeast infection? Where did you read that rubbish, of course it doesn't!

      4- Yukky stomach? Unlikely but IF it does it'll be for a very short spell and again is trivial compared to infertility and PID.

      Yeast infection is cured using antifungals which are not regulated as much as antibiotics. If you're not happy with your doctor, then see someone else. Not trusting all doctors because you weren't happy with one is a bit crazy.

      Taking low-level antibiotics once, now, is far easier than, say, being admitted to hospital with PID, having VERY strong antibiotics administered through a drip in your arm, 24 hours a day for a week to save your life, then to be told you're infertile.

      'Natural' medicine works on imagined conditions or other situations where people are a bit gullible, feel a bit 'off' and would get better anyway. Chlamydia is a real disease and trying to use imaginary cures clearly is madness.

      Antibiotics save millions of lives every day, 'natural' cures are used by scammers to take money from the deluded and disillusioned and can cost you your life.

      Edit: Of all the things you should never use is homeopathy! Red Riding Hood has just been lucky in that her body has sorted itself out, placebos DO NOT work on real physical conditions! This is the danger with alt med, people take a fake cure, their body heals naturally, then they think it's because of the fake cure! You do NOT have the luxury of taking your time over this treatment, get yourself seen to asap!

  35. QUESTION:
    Where's the vet? My dogs ear infection?
    My dog has yeast infection is there a natural way to cure?

    • ANSWER:
      No. If let go, the dog can suffer hearing loss. It is easy to treat with ear medication and sometimes oral antibiotics. Please see the vet!!!!!!

      Vicks would cause a LOT of problems!!!!!!!! It is PETROLUM based and would BLOCK all the gunk in the ear from coming out. No airflow in the ear equals a WORSE infection!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And I have never heard of people having a yeast infection in the ear, or a human putting Vicks IN the ear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I would LOVE to see the look on the vet when you brought it in with a RAGING infection and said you put Vicks in the ears!!!!! He would write that up in the Journal in the "Stupid things owners have done" section!! LMFAO!!!!

  36. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

If you went to a conventional doctor, what is the typical medicine you will be given, and does it CURE it fast? What are the Typical Symptom of Yeast Infection in the intestine?

  39. QUESTION:
    Question for female medical problem?
    sorry to post this gross question
    but okay, i have a recurring yeast infection
    i had it about a month ago and monistat 'cured' it, but its back already. This time it's less severe so I figured instead of getting ripped off by the expensive monistat I'd try something new
    I heard natural cures like yogurt or garlic work better. So today I tried them (both) and i actually feel WAY better, it feels like its gone, but of course I probably have to keep doing it right? Anyone know how long I have to keep applying this?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you been to the doctor about this? Your probably just feeling symptomatic relief from home remedies and OTC treatments. Since it's recurring you'll probably be better off going to the doctor and getting prescription medication than trying to treat it on your own.

  40. QUESTION:
    Should I not use Canasten - canesten is expensive?
    I have been using canesten for a while, it costs me quite a bit too but does not work for my yeast infection. Just recently I have found a way to get cured by using natural products. It works so much better than commercial creams. Has anyone else found a better cure? http://shops-flower.com/yeast/index.htm

    • ANSWER:
      Although it isn’t the cure for the common cold, many people certainly hail the benefits of this remedy as being heaven sent. As a relief from the burning, itching, rash, and vaginal discharge, yogurt yeast infections remedies are the number one thing on many people’s minds.

      It can be messy, it can drip, and it can feel downright silly and maybe even naughty to be doing this, but to the tens of thousands of yeast infections sufferers yogurt it is the one thing that can stop them from going over the edge.

      There are of course other remedies that will work on yeast infections, and raw garlic clove suppositories is one of them, but most people will first try their hand at one of the methods of the yogurt yeast infections cure.
      You really don't need to pay for any commercial creams. Over a lifetime you can spend hundreds on them. Why do that when a natural cure is better for you and if you are pregnant your unborn child?

      Personally I would recommend that book.

  41. QUESTION:
    Cures for bacterial vaginosis without antibiotics?
    I think I may have BV -- I have heavier brownish discharge with an unpleasant odor -- and I was wondering if there are any non-antibiotic cures. It might be a yeast infection, so I'll try those remedies first, but I want to know other things to try too. I'm only 13, and I can NOT go to a gyno, I'd be mortified. I'm not overly shy about any vagina related things with myself, but other people? No freakin' way. Sorry.
    The heavy discharge is new, the unpleasant smell used to only occur after skipping showers but now it's happening every day. I'm thinking it might be a sign of my period, which is irregular and due any day now, but I'm not positive. I'm a virgin, by the way. I tried switching soaps and that didn't help. I used to get a burning when I washed down there, too.
    The cures can be natural, store bought, home made, I don't care. I just want advice. Please no 'see a doctor' answers -- as I said, I can't! And no douching either, I want to solve the prob not cover it up. Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Are you itching? If not, chances are you do not have BV or a yeast infection.

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching
      Buy Monistat 7 over-the-counter (you can try taking lots of probiotics or eating lots of unsweetened, plain yogurt, but it never worked for me)

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva
      See a doctor (you can try taking lots of probiotics or eating lots of unsweetened, plain yogurt, but it never worked for me)

      Old blood looks brown. As blood turns brown it also smells more.

      If you think it is just a scent thing, remember, it is normal to have your own unique musky scent and it will smell stronger to you than to others. If it is foul smelling, you really should see a doctor. Part of growing up and being mature is seeking professional help when you need it.

      You can also try drinking an 8oz glass of water with 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar added - drink 2-3 glasses a day.

    any help appreciated.

    • ANSWER:

  43. QUESTION:
    is cancer a really fungus?
    To find the cure for cancer, we really need to know what we are dealing with. Why do cells suddenly start replicating out of control? Why are cancers often different colors, not normally found in the human body? Why do cancers spread through the body?

    More than a million species of fungi exist on earth, which can be classified into two broad groups: yeasts and moulds. Fungi have various shapes, colors and textures, can live on land in the open air or in the aqueous conditions of rivers, ponds seas and inside living creatures. Fungi, have the capacity to produce a fruiting body, reproductive spores, a covering like skin, arteries, and internal fluid much like blood.

    While plants, animals and humans are alive and well, the fungi around us are unable to overcome the natural defense mechanisms of higher life forms. But once death occurs, the fungi are the primary tool nature uses to reduce all that once lived into the basic elements from which they were made. This is what biologists call the carbon cycle.

    However, the exception to this simple equation of life and death is that the fungi can attack plants and animals, while they are alive. Fungal spores are everywhere, millions of tiny particles are in the air, and the food we eat. They can enter the body in many ways, through the intestinal tract, the nose and lungs, and organs exposed to the world at large. We generally do not develop an infection from these intruders. However, when the immune system is compromised, the tissues are poorly oxygenated, the body is malnourished, these spores become the dominant life form and begin to grow.

    Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize Winner) found that simply reducing the oxygen supply to normal healthy tissue, it became cancerous. What he was really experiencing was that fungal spores, hidden in most living tissue, were able to grow aneorobically, becoming the dominant life form. Normal healthy tissue needs oxygen to live and grow, cancer and fungus cells can use sugar as their primary source of energy for growth, this is called anaerobic respiration or fermentation

    could Antifungals cure cancer?

    • ANSWER:
      I have seen research on this subject by an Italian doctor, Dr. Tulio Simonici, who has said as much as you have. You probably already have seen or heard of this doctor.

      I just lost my sister to lung cancer (she never smoked) on Nov. 1/08 and had been doing some research on the subject. She worked at a casino and there was some speculation that this dust found on the tokens (cadmium?) may have had something to do with it. I looked on the internet and could not find any related cases. I did however just yesterday find an interesting article about licorice and how it may help to prevent cadmium induced liver toxicity. (Found as a result of liver toxicity that I am suffering from as a result of possibly eating too much licorice!)

      Getting back to cancer though, this Dr. Simonici was using sodium bicarbonate as an anti fugal to treat cancers in the lung and colon which he has concluded are related to candida fungal infections. He might be right, unfortunately big pharmaceutical companies are not about to give up their billions in cancer research to study anti fungal treatments--that would be too easy. Instead this doctor has complained that he has received death threats for his research and findings related to fungal infections a a cause for cancer.

      Check out the second link below for a video of Dr. Simonici


Natural Ways To Clear Yeast Infections

Written By: admin - Sep• 02•12

The earliest yeast infection symptoms starts by having a minor itch around the vagina. The only real nice thing about it is that this is often remedied, plus there are specific items you need to use in order to battle this in your own home.

You can regularly apply some apple-cider vinegar to the affected area. The acidity of the vinegar will slow down the growth of the yeast. A mild garlic paste may be applied to ease the itchy sensation that is caused by the yeast.

Starch is the ideal means for growing fungus cultures. Because nearly all after-bath powders have a starch base, youre supporting an infection when you make use of a dusting powder. Try to keep powder away from panties.

Plain, unsweetened yogurt is one of the most popular yeast infection cures. It contains the beneficial acidophilus bacteria, that can control the growth of candida albicans. People suffering from yeast infection should consume plain, unsweetened yogurt several times a day for the effective yeast infection treatment at home. Yogurt can also be applied topically on the infected area including the vagina, as a cure for yeast infection in women. Likewise, you can also drink buttermilk to check the growth of yeast in your body.

This one is a bit different, because all you need to do is fill a bath, and mix it with one cup of vinegar. You can stay in the bath for as long as you want, but you will only need to stay in for twenty minutes. When you are done, make sure that you dry your vaginal area. Junk food is the major culprit that contributed in gaining of excess fat on your body. Therefore, the first thing you need to do is to completely cut down on junk and fast foods like French fries, pizzas, burgers, cookies, other desserts and ice creams. Secondly, consuming alcohol, dairy foods, fried foods, meat, etc. also results in deposition of excess fats in the body and hence, should not be consumed. You should also limit the intake of foods containing carbohydrates like pastas, whole grain bread, white bread, rice, potatoes, etc., if you are thinking of losing belly fat fast.

Avoid sweetened food, alcohol and caffeine! You can drink coffee but make sure you just drink ONE cup a day. Cut down on sugar in your coffee; I used to use 2.5 teaspoons of sugar for my coffee but now I only use 1/2 teaspoon. Guess what? My coffee tastes better with less sugar! Sometimes I even drink coffee without adding any sugar.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    does anyone know a natural way to clear a yeast infection?
    I have already tried yougurt and Diflucan?

    • ANSWER:
      1 tbs baking soda dissolved in 500ml water, mix it well and rinse yourself with it. Excellent results on yeast infection.

  2. QUESTION:
    Anyone with acne/oily skin, try this! I went from severe to clear and super oily to normal FAST & natually?
    Sorry, I know this isn't a question. But this is so amazing, and I just wanted to post it here where I know a lot of people would probably read it.

    I have severe acne and extremely oily skin. Well, I did a month ago, anyway. I recently got on an all-natural regimen that totally cleared up my acne AND majorly reduced oil production. It's so awesome. Here is what I do.

    I wash my face with Tea Tree Face Wash.

    As a toner I use a mixture of 1/3 natural, 100% Green Tea (which I brewed myself with a tea bag and let cool before adding ACV) and 2/3 Apple Cider Vinegar. This stuff is the best!!! It totally transformed my skin.

    And then as a spot treatment, I apply 100% undiluted Apple Cider Vinegar. It works WAY better than Benzoyl 10% or any over the counter product. Even if I have a really large zit, it's FLAT by the morning when I apply this rub this in at night. I use cosmetic pads for the toner and spot treatment.

    And that's it. I also drink the Apple Cider Vinegar, 3 Tablespoons a day, and take acidophilus with every meal to keep my digestion and intestines healthy, which helps acne a lot. (As a bonus, it fights against and prevents UTIs and yeast infections, which is great for women, especially pregnant women. I actually got a couple of UTIs and yeast infections since becoming pregnant - I'm seven months now- but after I started taking the ACV and acidophilus, I haven't had a single one.)

    The ACV that I use, and seems to be the best out there, is Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar "with mother".
    Btw, another bonus to this is that it's really, really cheap! :-D
    Also, just so you know, I had severe acne for 9 years. What did not work for me:

    Over the counter products (I tried them all), electricity, chemical peels, Accutane, Tetracyclin, Minocyclin, Arithromyacin (i forgot the spellings), special diets, Proactive, Murad, AcneFree...honestly, I don't think there is anything that I haven't tried.
    Add birth control to that list of things that didn't work.
    lol Another bonus: I got burned really bad twice since I've been on this regimen (I was stupid and went out in the sun way too long without sunscreen). I never had to apply any special lotion or anything. I just applied my toner like I always do, and I never peeled or anything. It just sunk right into a tan, which is VERY unusual for me.
    Rita-Lissette, acidophilus is a beneficial bacteria, basically. It's a supplement you can find in basically any store that has vitamins or food.

    Here's a link to wikipedia's answer to your question:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactobacillus_acidophilus
    Tinkerbell!

    Yeah, I would say that the tea tree soap is the least important part of the routine. I like the tea tree soap, because I like natural things, but you can keep using whatever face soap you use and get the same results, I'm sure! Please give it a month before giving up on it, by the way. A lot of people (me included) had a purging period around Week 2-3 where you break out in tiny white zits (different than my normal ones). Once that went away, I was clear!

    • ANSWER:
      this isn't an answer...but i had a question...
      this sounds really good. and i am going to try it and see if it works.
      but i was wondering if i had to buy the tree oil and wash my face with it. will it make that big of a difference? like if i just do the spot cleaner and toner?
      thanks so much! :]

  3. QUESTION:
    can a yeast infection make tears/holes wider? Can monistat make these things worse if you are sensitive?
    sorry about asking so many questions recently, I keep trying to figure out what's going on ..

    So I have a yeast infection, caught it early on so didn't have symptoms, just hurt to be touched down there with the swab at the doctor's and stuff..
    So I've been taking monistat 7, and today is the sixth day of using it..
    every day I look to see if it looks better, because at the beginning of the infection the tissue was white and extra-delicate and stuff. So when I look to see how the infection is doing, I am noticing that it's getting better in that sense, but other things are being weird and it's freaking me out. Like the 2 slits along the inside of the labia minora that I pee from, are getting longer each time I look, as if they were more like cuts than natural holes and it looks/feels like they're tearing the skin or something.. And before, I hadn't even been able to SEE the tiny hole that is the urethra in the center of them, and now I see it and it's getting slightly larger each time and looks like IT'S tearing/cutting into surrounding skin. The two hole/slit things on the fifth day of me looking, are almost CONNECTED now by a small tear or something.
    And I had a flap of skin near my hymen before that was torn I think, and it was there before, but now it's almost like there's a literal HOLE going through it, and it's gotten deeper and "tearing" closer to the top...

    Could I just be extra sensitive to the medication and that's happening?
    Or could that be from the infection itself?
    Or is this just normal..

    They did the lab work to determine the yeast infection the other day, but it won't come back for 3 weeks (I'm sure that's what it was though since the monistat has gotten rid of the whitish coloring on the surrounding tissue)... I'm hesitant to go back to the doctor so soon before the results come back though because they might just say to wait until those come in so they'll know if anything is wrong.
    My worry is that by the time they get in, since day by day these "tears" seem to be getting worse, there'll be too much damage to heal!! I never asked them about the tears at the appointment, because I had an infection- it wasn't SUPPOSED to look normal then, and even so it was still pretty close to the norm and this was last week! But now I'm just concerned because the infection is clearing up but there is skin getting cuts/tears/fissures...something.

    What's wrong with me?!
    I'm worried that by sunday my urethra slit things will be going from top to bottom running the length of the minora and my hymen will be a mess with random flaps of skin tearing in different directions all the way up to the urethra, way further up than it is supposed to, and I've never even had sex!

    • ANSWER:
      Wow... I'm not sure what you're describing, but it doesn't sound anything like any yeast infection I've ever known. I'd go back to the doctor ASAP. Ouch...

  4. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant? (already tried plain yogurt!!)?
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have had a constant yeast infection since close to day one. I was told by my OB that it is normal and that I can get any generic brand to treat it at my local pharmacy. I am particular now that I am pregnant and wanted to go the natural way and eat yogurt to make it go away, it started to but now I have been eating yogurt for the past 4 months, on a daily basis, and it still hasn't cleared up!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't eat the yoghurt to clear it up, you have to dip it in a tampon and insert it for a few hours. Drinking cranberry juice is said to be good to. I know it sounds gross but honestly, that's the way it works.

      *Even doctors recommend that you idiot. Never seen embarrassing bodies? The doctors on there even said it's safe and can work as well as over the counter meds.

  5. QUESTION:
    ALL WOMEN HELP, doctors too!?

    I have it everyday alot, its not white white, but like clear off white. it doesn't smell like fish. At the end of the day its dryed and white on my underwear though. It feels like im on my period sometimes. But instead of a fishy smell its like idk different.

If not is there any natural ways of getting rid of a yeast infection with out buy the products for it. Or can you buy something else that will get rid of it but it made for something else? Please Please Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      Every woman gets vaginal discharge, it's perfectly normal. It's your vagina's way of protecting itself from damage and flushing out bacteria. Some girls have more than others and often it smells a little too. Generally speaking, the discharge will increase when you're ovulating (about halfway through your menstrual cycle) or when you are sexually aroused. But having discharge every day is fine, and the amount of discharge you have will decrease as you grow older.

      If I were you I would wear panty liners to protect your underwear - they are basically very thin pads that you won't notice at all, but that way your underwear won't be wet all the time. Also make sure you wash your vagina every time you shower with a mild soap, that's an important part of general hygiene.

      If you ever notice the discharge becomes a chunkier white, and your vagina's lips become red and irritated and it really itches, or the smell is awful, those are signs of a yeast infection that needs to be treated. But it just sounds like regular discharge to me!

  6. QUESTION:
    moisture in dogs ear.?
    she favors one side and it smells like potatoes, sort of starchy. she is not running a fever or acting sick. could this be a yeast infection?
    i want to try to cure it naturally before going to the vet because she responds better to natural remedies over antibiotics and treatments. i have oticlense for her that i use regularly, will that clear up the infection if there is one?
    what are some things that may clear up the dogs ears naturally?
    I have seen people mention vinegar and mineral oil but how much am i supposed to use and what is the best way to apply it? I feel that vinegar is too harsh and would sting her ears.
    any help appreciated.

  7. QUESTION:
    Is this something to worry about?
    Is it possible to have a yeast infection without the burning when soap goes near your vagina to be cleaned, and no white cottage cheese, no fishy smell? Heres my story:

    Okay my boyfriend fingered me, and it hurt. Im a virgin, cherry not popped. It hurts like sometimes when i walk and sit. When i pee it burns but not much, i know its not a UTI, I had one before. Now
    theres clear yellowish mucous discharge like leaking, scared, help please?

    Additional Details
    its also a little red and puffy... not mch, though
    it doesnt smell yeasty or fishy, this isnt my first time getting fingered, but this time it hurt the most.

    Whatever it is, is there any natural ways to get rid of it besides meds and going to a doctor? His hands looked clean, he has longish nails, a LITTLE dirty, but not that long. This has never happened before.
    Also, could it have also been, well, i was playing at the playground, digging in sand and woodchips, touching all of the equiptment, could i have given this to ymself? i forgot to wash my hands BEFORE i wiped myself when i went to the bathroom, so my hands were filthy and nails were dirty...

    If not a yeast infection what could it be?
    No itching, either

    • ANSWER:
      From your description above it sounds like you have a bacterial infection and this usually has nothing to do with sex or being fingered. You need to see the doctor for this type of infection as antibiotics are used to treat this. Once you get on the medication your burning, redness and itching will go away.

    • ANSWER:
      Fibroids are clumps of uterine extra tissue overgrowths, some do not cause any discomfort and the ones that are larger and that will need to be surgically removed through an incision like a c-section to basically go into the uterus . If you are 26 years old, and want children, make sure that they leave your ovaries, tubes and uterus intact and NOT TO REMOVE THEM and only remove the fibroids. However, if your doctor suggests that something be removed so the fibroids don't come back and start growing again? Ask him what your options are. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor all the questions you have. Make a short list and take it with you to your appointment. Be ready with some questions.

      You will be OK. Have faith, and speak to someone at Social Security and start some benefits, you need to speak to a counselor, a dietician, and you need alot of support, emotional and medically. And try to have someone with you all the time, because you shouldn't be alone in this.

    O.M.G! My freaking private part is leaking!?
    See look im 15 going on 16! i know i shouldn't be having sex but my boyfriend wanted too! I'm sacred i messed up somewhere along the way..But im here in this situation. ugh! i think i got an yeast infection and i don't know how to get it cleared. Is there any motherly advice around here other talk to my mother i really don't want that monster to know bout me and him? please and thank you!
    i have a discharge is this a natural fuction
    It smealls just a little but my friends say im just not washing sally good enough
    can my boyfriend catch this during sexual intercourse?
    Or am i pregnant?

    • ANSWER:
      Not to be rude, but first off, a 15 year old really has no business having sex. (MY OPINION) Secondly, please don't call your mother a 'monster.' :'( I would say that you need to wash better. Get a yeast infection treatment kit. They take about a week or so to cure it. They aren't that expensive either. No, your bf can't catch it during intercourse. I would suggest NOT having sex again until it's cured COMPLETELY! You don't want to risk making it worse. If you're scared you 'messed' up somewhere along the way during sex, then you need to question whether you're truly ready. PLEASE be careful!

    • ANSWER:
      Its a fibroid - not the type that leads to cancer - and some of the other abdominal symptoms you have are related to it.

      Its not uncommon at all - and yours is not even all that large compared to some.

      Sometimes they do laser surgury to remove them - but they are usually not considered serious at all. Sometimes birth control pills keep the symptoms under control. I'm guessing folks are going to suggest vitex and black cohosh - I would avoid those - you might make things worse.

      Inhale deeply - exhale fully.
      The chances are very good you will be fine, and having children.

      Good Luck and Be Well

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there any natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection?
    I'm allergic to the prescription and over the counter treatments... My dr recommended I eat probiotic yogurt or said that antibiotics could work. Well, antibiotics can cause yeast infections... So, are there any natural ways to get rid of one?

    • ANSWER:
      A study reviewed in JOGNN showed that applying yogurt directly to the vagina (about one tablespoon via an applicator) can also fight yeast infections.
      "A vaginal application of yogurt containing Lactobacillus acidophilus may help to prevent and treat candidal vaginitis (a.k.a. yeast infections)."

  2. QUESTION:
    what is the most natural way to help rid my yeast infections?
    i am 25 weeks pregnant. and i cant seem to get rid of them they go and come back .. my doctor says this is normal..
    HELP!!!!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      Here are some natural treatments you can use right now to help eliminate your yeast infection, at the very least to help reduce the symptoms.

      There are many things you need to start doing and addressing if you are suffering from a yeast infection. To start, do the following:

      1. Wear loose clothing and undergarments, oxygen kills yeast, going commando and wearing nothing down there if possible is even better.

      2. Get some unsweetened yogurt and rub it onto a tampon, insert the tampon and do this continually until the yeast infection is gone.

      3. Cut out any and all sugar, alcohol and yeast from your diet. All three will promote the infection further.

      4. Start drinking cranberry juice, pure not from concentrate with no added sugar, I know this goes against the no sugar thing but the acid content in the cranberries will alter the PH balance of your vagina and cause the yeast to die off.

      5. If you can tolerate it, use a raw garlic clove and apply it to the infection, this may burn so dilute it with some olive or coconut oil, both of which can also help eliminate the yeast, especially the coconut.

      6. Take a probiotic with at least 50 billion live cells per pill, this is key in redistributing good bacteria throughout your body, and effectively end the yeast infection. You must do this continually until you have eliminated your yeast infections and Candida entirely.

      7. Lastly if all else fails, begin adding 2 cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath. Only fill the tub up high enough to submerge your genital area. Stay in the tub for 20-30 minutes at a time.

      Hope this helps, the yogurt is the key really, by putting good bacteria directly on the area you will eliminate it quickly. Make sure it is unsweetened and ideally keep an eye out for a variation called Kefir which has even more beneficial bacteria in it to snuff out the infection.

  7. QUESTION:
    Ways to get rid of a yeast infection in baby boys?
    My son is one (15 mos) and has a yeast infection AGAIN. He's got the little red bumps and is very red, blotchy on his penis/testicals. I took him to the doctor and was recommended lotrimen, which fine, worked okay last time. But it didn't work great by any means, I thought, so I was just wondering if there's any other, maybe more natural/fast-healing ideas you fantastic geniuses have out there? I am letting him air out more, and trying to be more careful about not letting his diapers get wet. I'd really appreciate it, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast diaper rashes are common in both boys and girls, so ignore the first person (as I assume you will)

      Firstly if you want to use OTC creams there are three main drugs so you might just want to use a different ones. I find Miconazole works best.

      If you are breastfeeding you should always treat mom and baby together (with natural treatments listed below there is basically no risks/side effects). If this is a recurrent problem for baby treating it orally is a must.

      Grapefruit Seed Extract is probably the most effective and most researched. It can be used orally and topically (and should probably be used both)

      Probiotics: returning the flora balance will kill of the yeast. It can be taken orally and applied topically. If you crack open the capsules most kids will just eat the powder no problem as it is quite sweet. Just be aware that most brands are sold in a lactose base, in case this is a concern. The dose I was told is 1 capsule twice a day on an empty stomach for adults, 1/2 capsule twice a day for kids. Though there really isn't a risk of overdosing.

      Vinegar: Some people take cider vinegar -don't know if that works. However vinegar douches are useful for women, and can possible be used for babies just use caution in case it burns (if the rash is severe). Also put 1/3 cup in the rinse of your laundry to kill yeast. Bleach in concentrations safe for laundry will not kill yeast. Vinegar is also a natural fabric softener and deodorizer, your laundry won't smell of vinegar.

      Baking soda in the bath water can also change the pH enough to kill Yeast and it will soothe and prevent itching.

      Note: Genetian Violet you will note I didn't mention this, and for very good reason it is NOT a natural cure, it is a commercial chemical that happens to kill yeast. It has been linked to mouth cancer though this is far from proven.

  8. QUESTION:
    Natural way to get rid of a yeast infection?
    Please and thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't wear tight underwear.
      Eat lots of yogurt, and in the shower get some plain yogurt and rub it in your lower region, wait 5 minutes or so, and then wash it off. (You can also use keefer a yogurt type of drink)
      Don't eat lots of sugar, it only feeds the yeast infection.
      Also, you can go to a health food store and buy some asidopholus milk and douch it down there a few times a day.
      To soothe it, take a warm bath and put four tea-spoons of baking soda in there, just swish it down there.

      If that fails, just get some monistat.

  9. QUESTION:
    can your period get rid of a yeast infection?
    wat r natural ways to get rid of the a yeast infection natural ways

    • ANSWER:
      1. Eat lots of garlic. Garlic is an agent known to posses a natural anti-fungal property that can do wonders in helping to get rid of your yeast infection. Of course, there are added benefits to your overall health by eating garlic on a daily basis, such as lowered cholesterol.

      2. Try to avoid taking antibiotics. Antibiotics can easily change the soft balance in your chemical makeup by holding down the naturally observed good bacteria (this is what helps maintain the yeast and candida under control). Only take antibiotics when absolutely needed.

      3. Eat plenty of yogurt. This is probably the most talked about treatment available for those suffering from yeast infections. The yogurt should be applied 3 to 5 times a day until the yeast infection is completely gone.

      4. White vinegar. This is very much like the yogurt in that is should be applied 3 to 5 times a day for no more than 1 week. A capful of white vinegar should do the job. This is also a very popular remedy.

      Hope this helps.

  10. QUESTION:
    i know that eating yogurt is the natural way to get rid of a yeast infection but how much should i eat a day?

    • ANSWER:
      The yogurt you need to eat is the unsweetened kind that contains active bacteria. Many commercial brands do not contain live acidophilus so you have to read labels to find the right kind. A health food store may be your best option. You can also apply the yogurt directly to the vagina. The idea to use a tampon was correct, but put the yogurt on the tampon and insert into your vagina. Remove the tampon after an hour or two. Do not leave in for an extended period of time. Unsweetened yogurt doesn't necessarily taste that good so one 6-8 ounce container per day is going to be plenty. Don't add anything to it as sugar (including fructose found in fruit) will feed the bacteria in your yeast infection.

  16. QUESTION:
    How do get rid of this TERRIBLE yeast infection?!?
    I've gotten what appears a yeast affection. I don't want to take vagasil or any other medication. From your experience, is there any natural ways of getting rid of it and how long would it itake?

    • ANSWER:
      Why don't you want to take any medication for it? It works so well.
      I had one of those after a course of antibiotics. :O

      I'm pretty sure eating yogurt is supposed to work? But you're gonna be eating a lot of yogurt and it's gonna take far too long.

      Don't be embarrassed about getting medication for it. Heaps of girls get them.

  17. QUESTION:
    How Long Does It Take For Yogurt To Remove Yeast Infection?
    I put plain yogurt (with active culture) around my vulva and inside my vagina with a tampon, to get rid of a yeast infection the natural way. A couple of hours later, I do feel relief.

    But how long will it take for the yeast to be complete vacant from my vagina, and when will my skin completely restore itself?

    • ANSWER:
      If it's working, keep using it for at least 3 days. If it comes back, you should buy Monistat 7 instead.

  18. QUESTION:
    how to treat yeast infections?
    what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection ? antibiotics make me sick

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics actually cause yeast infections, not cure them. They cause an imbalance of the bacteria in your vagina by killing off the good as well as the targeted bad bacteria.

      Personally, I eat yogurt every day to help prevent them (antibiotics are only one cause). But when I actually have one there are some OTCs, like Monistat that work really well.

  19. QUESTION:
    Is it okay when you have a yeast infection?
    Is it okay to put hot water on your vagina when you have a yeast infection to sooth it and clean it? And what are some natural ways to get rid of a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Put some live (bio-active) yogurt on a tampon, insert and remove after an hour. The bacteria in the yogurt are the same type that naturally live in the vagina. Thrush happens when the normal bacteria in the vagina are disturbed for some reason, such as antibiotic use, allowing overgrowth of yeast.

  20. QUESTION:
    How do u get rid of a yeast infection??
    Im 16 weeks prego and not sure if i have ayeast infection or not. I have never had one before but it sometime itches like this morning for an hr then it stoped and the other day it did the same thing. it kind has a smell to it but not major and i can only smell it when i pee and it is kinda yellowish discharge but i have had a yellowish discharge since becomeing prego. Im not sure if it is or not but i was thinking of getting one of those test from CVS but wasnt sure if they work and if i do happen to have a yeast infection what is a natural way to get rid of it considering im not to comfortable shoving meds up there. Any suggestions??

    • ANSWER:
      You should go to your doctor and have them test because it might not be a yeast infection - yeast usually has a white discharge, whereas bacterial vaginosis has a yellow discharge. Both are common in pregnancy, but bv is treated with antibiotics, and can be dangerous in pregnancy where a yeast infection is harmless to pregnancy and can sometimes be cured by eating lots of yogurt with active cultures in it, or by the actual yeast infection treatments like monistat. Only your doctor can tell you for sure which you have.

  21. QUESTION:
    natural ways to control yeast?
    So, I went to the doctors the other day about something totally unrelated and she told me i had yeast on my lips, and that I am prone to yeast infections. I already knew this, but I'm getting tired of having to pay so much money to get rid of them, not to mention the itchiness. I already know about cranberry juice, but I want a way that will actually help prevent them, and I cant keep buying a bottle a day. I went to the health food store, but the only thing they had was 33 dollars, and for that amount of money i might as well just get the fix after the fact. I'm a student, and can't afford a lot. If anyone has any suggestions I'd really like to hear it. I've cut down a lot on pasta and bread, but unfortunately carbs are the cheap stuff...
    thanks:)

    how to get rid of a yeast infection naturally?
    okay so stupid me, left a pad on or a few days and then it smelled really bad, i removed it took a shower, and no more smell! but ever since then i have been a little itchy.. not constant, just every once in a while. no smell, and no unusual discharge.

    oh yea not sexually active so can't be std

    so i really don't want to go thru the hassle of telling my mom, so i was hoping that there was a natural way to cure it? also if not cured what could happen??
    would hydrocortisone cream work?? i have that...

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't have a discharge, you probably don't have a yeast infection. It's probably just an irritation. I would just use a soap that is ph balanced (you can find those at the health food store). Also, it's a little messy but plain organic yogurt might help with the discomfort if you want to go the "natural" way.

      I don't think I would use the hydrocortisone on that area of your body unless you check with your doctor first.

      If this condition doesn't go away in a week or so, I would tell your mom and maybe call a doctor.

      Good luck

  24. QUESTION:
    yeast infection?how to get rid of it?home remedies?
    ive tried over the couunter products and i dont have time for a doctor, its been on and off for a long time now and im just a very busy person so i do forget about it alot which is very sad but juggling kids and work is hard.whats a natural way to get rid of this? any home remedie suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      If over the counter products aren't working then it's probably not a yeast infection, it's something else so you should see a doctor. One remedy is dipping a tampon in plain yogurt then putting it in your vagina for like a half an hour then washing yourself after.

    i mean i have got good and bad reviews from other ppl on this

    • ANSWER:
      I've never heard of that brand, but if it's going to effectively fight yeast, it should have some combination of Probiotics, Caprylic Acid and/or Grapefruit Seed Extract... those are some of the best nutrients to use in conjunction to fight yeast.
      If you wanted to have the best impact, the Probiotic supplement should typically be one with 30+ billion viable organisms from several strains... less than that will take longer to fight the yeast enough to stop the overgrowth. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  26. QUESTION:
    Reaccuring Yeast Infections-I have a few questions actually.?
    Symptoms

    Itching
    Swelling a little
    Sometimes it burns
    I have ALWAYS had vaginal discharge, but my parents think it's from when I was molested when I was younger (k-8th grade)

    Need to knows?

    I have been sexually active (I really don't want to get lectured on this, my parents know and we got over it. I also knew the dangers) with only one person, my boyfriend (we technically our virginity to each other, too.) He does not have any STD's and neither do I. BUT I was molested by my stepfather since I was little up until 8th grade. I am in 10th grade now.

    I have been on Loestrin 24 FE birth control for a few months. I have also been on the same kind for four months before I started again. I took a break for a month

    I have gone to the "girly doctor" once (they gave me medication for a yeast infection)

    I have had itching for a series of days twice now. It keeps happening.

    This is the fourth time in the same year that I have had a yeast infection (or something like one).

    I don't really wear tight clothing, but my underwear kind of is (thongs, boyshorts, nylon, heck I honestly don't really know...)

    I USED to wipe back to front a year ago because I couldn't get everything off (I have no idea why) but I found out that caused it so I have been wiping the correct way since.

    I clean myself "down there" when I shower and bathe. I shower usually every day but some days I don't have time so I skip a day or two.(I really have no choice) I have been told it is bad to clean myself there, and I have been told it was good.

    I have been having infections a lot lately. My mom says it's because of my underwear but I do wear cotton, too. I don't like tight clothing that much but I do wear it.

    Here are my questions

    Do I have a yeast infection again? My mom says she doesn't think I need to see the doctor. My doctor kind of creeped me out.

    If I do, could it have anything to do with my boyfriend? (I KNOW he hasn't cheated on me and I KNOW he doesn't have any STD's.
    Can guys get yeast infections WITHOUT having sex?

    Is it good or bad to clean my vaginal area?

    Besides Monistat and those medications like it, are there any natural remedies around the house I can use to relieve the itching and get rid of the infection that I can aply to the area directly and/or eat or something? (I am really poor, I can't afford to buy more medications for it.)

    Can having reaccuring yeast infections be serious?

    I'm really confused here...any information on what I should do and know about would be highly appreciated. I am willing to answer any questions. Just please don't be mean, I'm kind of freaking out here and I'm hoping that what I am having isn't serious.

    • ANSWER:
      A yeast infection is caused by the fungus candida. You need to be treated for it with an over-the counter anti-fungal cream. There are no other ways to get rid of it once you have it.
      While treating for it, do not have sex.
      Once it's cleared, resume sex as normal.
      If it returns, your boyfriend could also hav a yeast infection (yes, guys can get them, too) He will need to be treated, and you will need to be re-treated. No sex until symptoms are gone once you have figured out that you both have it. Thorough treatment is important or you will just keep reinfecting each other.
      Actually, yes, you can also pass the yeast infection without sex. If you have oral sexual contact with someone who has a yeast infection, you can pass the infection to your mouth. You will need to see a doc for a prescription to clear that up. (It's called Thrush) And, yes, you can pass that back and forth orally and sexually.
      Discharge is normal. It can be clear, watery, milky, thick or even snot-like (fertile mucus). As long as it does not have a strong odor, you are ok. The yeast infection causes a thick, cottage-cheese like discharge. Unless the discharge is green, yellow or has a bad odor, you are ok.
      If you have been molested, even though your bf didn't give you anything, you could still have gotten an STD from the man that molested you. Unless you have been tested for STDs, you should not consider yourself free of them. If your doc creeped you out, see a different doc.
      Over-cleaning can also cause itchiness. So if you are using a perfumed cleaner or spraying "freshening" sprays down there, that can casue the itchiness, too. Obviously you want o keep that area clean. Try a hypo-allergenic soap without fragrance. A lot of itchiness is caused from soap and fragrance.
      Eating yogurt has been said to help keep the balance of good bacteria in one's body.
      Good luck to you.

  28. QUESTION:
    How can I help cure my yeast infection?
    I don't really have the money to be spending on monistat and stuff, so I was wondering if there's any natural way I can help get rid of this infection. It's pretty gross I've never had one before and it's bothering me. Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Probiotics are a popular natural remedy for yeast infection. They are live microbial organisms that are naturally present in the digestive tract and vagina. Probiotics, sometimes referred to as "friendly" bacteria, suppress the growth of potentially harmful organisms such as Candida, which is why probiotic supplements have been explored as a natural remedy for yeast infection.

      The type of probiotic being studied for yeast infections is Lactobacillus, especially Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1, and Lactobacillus fermentum RC-14. In some studies, low levels of Lactobacilli in the vagina have been associated with yeast infection. These can be found in foods like yogurt.

      The essential oil tea tree oil, diluted and applied topically to the vaginal area, has shown some potential as a natural home remedy for yeast infection. A compound called terpinen-4-ol in tea tree oil appears to be responsible

    How do you get rid of a yeast infection while pregnant? (already tried plain yogurt!!)?
    I am currently 27 weeks pregnant and I have had a constant yeast infection since close to day one.

I am particular now that I am pregnant and wanted to go the natural way and eat yogurt to make it go away, it started to but now I have been eating yogurt for the past 4 months, on a daily basis, and it still hasn't cleared up!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't eat the yoghurt to clear it up, you have to dip it in a tampon and insert it for a few hours. Drinking cranberry juice is said to be good to. I know it sounds gross but honestly, that's the way it works.

      *Even doctors recommend that you idiot. Never seen embarrassing bodies? The doctors on there even said it's safe and can work as well as over the counter meds.

    thanks soo much guys UR LIKE MY FAMILY :D

    • ANSWER:
      None of the home remedies ever worked on me - tea tree oil, garlic, plain yogurt is more preventative not a cure....

      Send your mom a text to get you some Monistat 7 at the store to treat it, so you don't have to see a doctor.

      Different types of infections both of which you can get at any time, even if you aren't having sex:

      Signs of yeast infections:
      White, cottage cheese-like discharge
      Swelling and pain around the vulva
      Intense itching

      Signs of bacterial vaginosis:
      A white, gray or yellowish vaginal discharge
      A fishy odor that is strongest after sex or after washing with soap
      Itching or burning
      Slight redness and swelling of the vagina or vulva

  31. QUESTION:
    Do I have a yeast infection?
    A couple of days ago, I went to the bathroom and noticed a lot of this thick, pale, cottage-cheese-like discharge, which doesn't smell. Soon after, this crazy itching began in my vagina. I looked up the symptoms on the Internet and was surprised to learn that it seemed to be a yeast infection. I've never had a yeast infection before. I wanted to go to the doctor to make sure, but they don't have any appointment openings for at least two weeks. Understandably, I don't want to wait that long to get this taken care of. The different articles on the internet (I've read at least six) all say to go to the doctor if this is the first infection, since it could be something else, like an STD. I really don't think it's anything else - the symptoms match a yeast infection, but I'm not 100% sure. Am I in the middle of a yeast infection? Are there natural ways to get rid of it? If not, what's the best over-the-counter treatment? How long is this going to last?

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,
      Not only have I had these but a bladder infection and cysts on my ovary's. All very painful.
      I have found the over the counter stuff to be a waste of money, however it has been some time since my last one, maybe they are better now?
      The best thing to do is go to a doctor, doesn't have to be your doctor (though it would be nice for it to be).
      After you get this one cleared up (if it is just a yeast infection) consider eating some yogurts,cranberry juice (the real stuff is the best and what I drink, though there is that cocktail stuff).
      Also tight clothing, jeans, underwear, swim suites also contribute to infections. So keep this in mind.
      Hope this helps and wish you well!!

  33. QUESTION:
    Is there any home remedies to get rid of Human Parasites?
    I just received a paper on unhealthy colons. That doctors finally discovered the real cause of 90% of all diseases. It is unhealthy colons. The Natural Medicine Association have come up with a cure and to get rid of the parasites that may and are living in our colons. The program they have is so costly at the start of .95.
    I was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows a cheaper way to cleanse the human body of parasites?
    The symptoms are...
    Constipation or diarrhea, chronic yeast infections, chronic fungus on hand/toe nails or nails become brittle or lost their luster.
    Getting sick or catching colds often, weight problems or rapid weight gain, acne, skin disorders,or skin dry or pal, mood swings or depression, premenstrual syndrome more intensified, low sex drive, lack of concentration, short term memory problems ,sleeping problems, being easily prone to diseases, frequent headaches, chronic urinary tract irritation/infections, arthritic bone pains,allergies,gas,ex....
    Why don't someone just put dewormer for humans on the market? They found it simple to for animals..why not humans?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a colon detoxification program called Colonix that I have been using for the past three months. It's a three-part program, part of which focuses on the removal of intestinal parasites. That part of the program is called Paranil, and it consists of four capsules a day, followed by a large glass of water. It's a proprietary herbal blend, containing things like garlic, black walnut hulls, and tons of other things.

      Although the entire program costs .00 for a one month supply, the Paranil is sold seperately for .00 a bottle (and it's even cheaper if you buy three at a time.)

      http://www.drnatura.com

      There are lots of other herbal parasite programs out there; you might check GNC or health food/vitamin stores to compare prices. The reason I suggested Paranil is because I've taken it myself, and the website has literally hundreds of positive verifiable testimonials. It's worth a look, anyway... as I said, I've been on the whole program for three months and I'm very impressed with it.

      Most Children With Middle Ear Infections Get Better on Their Own, Study Finds

      By Salynn Boyles
      WebMD Health News

      Reviewed by Laura J. Martin, MD

      Nov. 16, 2010 -- The best treatment for many children with middle ear infections may be no treatment at all, a review of the research confirms.

      The analysis found antibiotics to be "modestly" more effective than just treating symptoms with pain medication. But use of antibiotics was also commonly associated with side effects like diarrhea and rash.

      Researchers say the review, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, shows the merit of a watch-and-wait approach to managing ear infections.

    Yeast Infection - How Do I Cure This Kind Of Yeast Infection?
    It begun as a vaginal yeast infection so I rinsed with cool water frequently and kept it clean - no soap for a little while and loose cool clothing. Then I went to the doctor - almost 10 days into the yeast infection and she gave me this one take pill that was suppose to take full effect 25 hours after taking. The swelling and inflammation and open sores all went way down and are almost gone as is. There is still that tough to get out little white almost oval shaped yeast in the creases of the vaginal area and in the center. Only noticing as of this morning the center of the vaginal area "exploded " in a way; the center of the vaginal area had a large clump of white mushy chunky stuff. This happened twice today. Of course I rinsed. The second time I rinsed my mom recommended to try using soap - an all natural moisturizing vegetable oil and goat milk for sensitive soap. This worked nicely.

    >>>>Anyway my concern is that the yeast is growing on my Tongue, on different areas of my skin and I suspect inside of me as well. My lips (on my face) feel so chapped and parched it's kind of painful to move them - it is yeast though. What do I do about this sort of situation? How do I cure a yeast infection that literally seems to be just about everywhere inside me and on me?

    I scrape my tongue and rinse off new growth frequently(body rinse and tongue rinsing too - always separate ). I even use a soap that seems to be helping.

    The entire house has been cleaned today - and cleaned well.

    I am 16. I have been sexually active before. What do I do to get rid of this yeast infection?

    Please help quickly.
    >> The sores have cleared up

    >> now the yeast is just growing just about everywhere in and on me

    • ANSWER:
      yeast can be a problem in the body. Oil of Candida helps kill it some. Stop eating yeast and start using pro biotic. Pills and will do the same as the yogurt with out the sugar.

      Probiotis help the most and in time will fix your system. If it gets worse see your Dr for stronger meds.

  38. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection on inner thighs?
    I had eczema on my inner thighs, and then I went to this one really gross house for a birthday party, the next morning, I wake up, and I have this huge rash all over my inner thighs and my first thought was eczema because I already had eczema, and we found out it was a yeast infection, and my doctor thinks it's cause of that house, it's been just about two months now and it's almost gone, but it's still wanting to come back and my mom doesn't seem to give a care, she won't call the doctor's or anything, she'll just tell me to stop wining about it. But what she doesn't realize is that my inner thighs have been burning and itching for the past two months and I have to wear long shorts every day, and I can't wear jeans because then my symptoms get worse. I don't know what to do! I need to be getting rid of it soon because I have to run in really short shorts for cross country in about a month and a half for the meets so I need this gone!

And when I did do these things I was in so much pain because of the infection. so what are some natural ways to treat a yeast infection? Thanks!

    what are some natural ways without meds n stuff to get rid of it..i heard about yoghurt but yer

    • ANSWER:
      From what you wrote so far and at your age, it could be smegma - Smegma is a very real substance; to maintain good vaginal health, you need to keep it from accumulating. Glands on the inner surface of the clitoral hood secrete sebum, an oily substance that lubricates the clitoral glans. When this secretion builds up, it becomes smegma, a thick white discharge with a cottage-cheese appearance. It also usually smell, don't know if that's one of the symptoms. If the smegma isn't washed away on a regular bases, it can accumulate and dry out, forming small hard kernels under the clitoral hood. The resulting irritation can be painful and may cause adhesion to form between the glans and hood. Preventing these adhesion is very simple: keep your vagina squeaky clean. This is common - especially at a young age.
      It might be some sort of bacteria like in Vaginosis, but I would assume at your age, it is not likely. Ask you mother, she should more since, she would able to see what it is. You don't want to get UTI - urinary tract infection (there are pills for it, though).

    Yeast Infection? Need help? Fast!?
    Ok so i have a yeast infection for definite. But i am 14, so it's like woah embarrassment. I read that if you don't treat it immediately then you can have a serious condition. Is this true?

    I think i have had it about a year...and i want to treat it but the creams and pills etc are for 16 years of age and above to buy at boots etc.

    So i am like, how? lol i am really worried but i can't tell anyone because it's like amazingly embarrassing. I can't go to the doctors either. Coz i think you have to go with your mum.

    And also...

    My trousers stink...as soon as i have worn them, they stink. I have to spray them like all the time with body spray so the smell is covered.

    Somebody please help me...i don't know what to do? i am confused? Are there any natural ways to get rid of it?

    Thanksx
    kendall u bitch.
    no no, actually i think it may be a Bacterial vaginosis infection! I am pretty sure it is! Change the question to that please!
    Ella x is also a pathetic moron.
    no kendall, u may have exactly the same answer as other people but ur were bloody rude! There is no excuse for that...it doesn't take a lot of effort to be polite does it?! Chav.

    • ANSWER:
      If you are really smelly down there, something is definitely wrong! You have to tell your mother and go see someone. It's important. It's not embarrassing. Stuff like that happens, and what if it affects your ability to have kids later?

  41. QUESTION:
    Absolutely Disgusting Yeast Infection?
    I am twelve years of age and have not had my period yet.
    About a month and a half ago, I started to get vaginal discharge, and knew it was perfectly normal.
    After about three weeks, I had to buy some new underwear, which were a bit tight. I have started to eating poorly, and it started coming out greenish-brown and chunky like which completely grossed me out and I knew something was wrong. I have minor itching, and I use 'light-flow' pads to keep the discharge from getting into my underwear.

    I am most definitely not sexually active - ew.
    I was wondering if there are any natural ways to help get rid of this nast infection.
    The doctor said, "Oh you're fine. Just clean yourself and you will be good to go." That didn't really help in the least bit.

    Do you think sleep has anything to do with it also? I get about 7 hours of sleep each night- I know it's terrible.

    Thank-you!

    • ANSWER:
      (Way to be more articulate than some of the people on here twice your age, BTW.)

      Greenish discharge and fishy smell are symptoms of bacterial vaginosis rather than a yeast infection. With a yeast infection it's yellow/whitish and has a texture that will prevent you from looking at cottage cheese the same way ever again.

      Either way, natural remedies include any/all of the following:

      1. kill the bad stuff. I'm a proponent of garlic for this. Carefully peel the papery skin off of a clove of garlic - don't knick the surface. If your hymen's broken already and you think you'll be able to fish the garlic out again with your (clean) finger, go ahead and put it up in there overnight. If you're worried about getting it out, wrap it in a single layer of bandage gauze and tie a little tail of dental floss to pull it out with.

      2. put back the good stuff. Ideally there should be a population of friendly bacteria hanging out in there doing their thing, competing with the bad guys and keeping them out. Get plain, unsweetened yogurt and get some up in there. Sounds gross and crazy, yes. But it's soothing and it helps.

      3. if needed, try a water/vinegar douche to restore a healthy pH. If you buy it at the store, check the ingredients to make sure it does not have nonoxynol in it. That's a spermicide which is very irritating to a lot of people and likely to make the situation worse.

      4. if those don't work, google around for some other remedies. Maintain a health dose of skepticism when reading any medical advice on the internet. Or ask your mom what she'd do.

      5. to prevent in the future: eat yogurt regularly so that your guts have more friendly bacteria and less bad stuff that could reinfect you. Wipe front to back, don't put your fingers in there if you haven't just washed them, wear cotton panties, avoid tight pants, etc.

      Good luck!

  42. QUESTION:
    ALL WOMEN HELP, doctors too!?

If not is there any natural ways of getting rid of a yeast infection with out buy the products for it. Or can you buy something else that will get rid of it but it made for something else? Please Please Please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      Every woman gets vaginal discharge, it's perfectly normal. It's your vagina's way of protecting itself from damage and flushing out bacteria. Some girls have more than others and often it smells a little too. Generally speaking, the discharge will increase when you're ovulating (about halfway through your menstrual cycle) or when you are sexually aroused. But having discharge every day is fine, and the amount of discharge you have will decrease as you grow older.

      If I were you I would wear panty liners to protect your underwear - they are basically very thin pads that you won't notice at all, but that way your underwear won't be wet all the time. Also make sure you wash your vagina every time you shower with a mild soap, that's an important part of general hygiene.

      If you ever notice the discharge becomes a chunkier white, and your vagina's lips become red and irritated and it really itches, or the smell is awful, those are signs of a yeast infection that needs to be treated. But it just sounds like regular discharge to me!

  43. QUESTION:
    need to treat raw skin from yeast infection?
    i just got over a HORRIBLE yeast infection. I had tried all sorts of creams and pills to get rid of it. I finally got rid of it the natural way via yougurt on a tampon. I have no yeast infection anymore (no burning, itching, swelling, or redness) the only thing is that the inside of my vaginal walls especially right near the opening are VERY raw and sore. this is because i had sex 2 times during my yeast infection. I understand that my yeast infection is gone. I only had sex before this treatment. But i know that my opening is still sore because it hurts when i insert the tampon. i need to get rid of this for valentines day. i have read forums about this from other women and they said that it takes at least a month of no sex to let the skin heal. but i need to valentines day. i did not spend 60 dollars at victorias secret for nothing. i dont want to ask my doctor how i can treat it cuz shes just gonna give me a medicinal cream and i know they dont work. i need a natural remedy to heal this skin. maybe unscented lotion? but you always have to be careful about what you stick up there. thats why im asking on here. anyone know what will help the skin heal that is safe to stick up there and is natural? you will be my lifesaver

    • ANSWER:
      Do not use lotion down there. It will mess up your PH balance down there. Uhm.....to heal the skin you could use some monistat cream. Don't put it inside you, but on the outside. That really takes care to heal skin and soothe symptoms such as raw skin and irritation.

      Also...there's something called VaginexII that's anti-itch cream. But its VERY soothing. And might help with your rawness and irritation.

      I don't really understand why you HAVE to have sex on valentine's day. But i mean, for your own sake you really shouldn't. It can actually irritate it down there some more and you actually get another yeast infection. A lot of woman talk about that happening and then you have to go through it all over again.
      But good luck.

  45. QUESTION:
    I think I have a yeast infection, help?!?
    Well its been itchy, and it kinda burns. Do I have one? If so, do you know any natural ways to get rid of it?!?!?!

    • ANSWER:
      You probably do have a yeast infection, but if you're sexually active you need to go to your doctor to confirm - especially if you've never had one before. Many symptoms of yeast infections are also symptoms for STDs. Most STDs that cause these types of symptoms are easily treated.

      As for natural ways to treat it, go to your drugstore and buy Acidophilus pills. Follow the directions on the label. You can also eat yogurt, but make sure it's low in sugar. Stay away from sugary or high-carb foods.

      Your best bet is to go to the doctor though. It's common and nothing to be embaressed about.

  47. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of vaginal odor?
    I've noticed that my vagina has a very strong, very gross odor. It's been like this for as long as I can remember, and I don't have any considerable amount of discharge, and the little that I do isn't discolored, or having a strange consistency. I've also noticed that when I masturbate, the odor becomes stronger.

    I know the main symptoms of yeast infections are a strong odor, and yellow or green discharge. I don't have any itching or anything, so I'm pretty sure it's not a yeast infection. Also, I've heard that douching can cause odors to be worse, because it disturbs the natural bacteria.

    Is there any way that I can get rid of the foul odor without douching?
    How exactly should one wash there? I usually just use mild soap, warm water and a wash cloth.

    • ANSWER:
      you may have bacterial vaginosis.
      it's quite a common infection 1/10 women will get it some point in their lives.
      its a smelly (fishy, musty) infection that doesn't itch.
      it's caused by a change in the balance of bacteria in the vagina caused by: a change in sexual partner, strong washing powders, shower gels, douching etc
      it's also more likely to develop in women who have an iud (like me)
      it doesn't mean you're dirty, in fact its more likely to develop in women who clean down there more regularly.
      it clears up after a short dose of antibiotics given to you by your doctor, nurse, sexual health nurse.
      in some cases it will clear up by itself.
      washing it with gels etc will actually make it worse, you should just use water.
      it's not a sexully transmitted infection so no one else will have to be treated.

  49. QUESTION:
    Yogurt In Vagina if you're Lactose?
    Hey everyone. I've been having a very irritated vagina lately. But it's not at all like the pain of a yeast infection. Maybe it's from douching with water in the bath. But I was thinking, to kind of do a natural cleansing, would it safe for me to insert PLAIN yogurt inside me even though I'm lactose intolerant?

    I've heard a lot of success stories from women using this natural way to get rid of a yeast infection, and i thought seeing as it's just yogurt it couldnt hurt right? im just concerned im going to have some sort of reaction cause im lactose intolerant.

    i can eat yogurt regularly without problem, but is there a direct link to the blood line frm the wall lining?

    • ANSWER:
      OK, if you are lactose intolerant it means your body can't digest the lactose, so unless your vagina is going to digest the yogurt, then you don't have to worry!

      PS: it is a good , natural way-just dont leave it in for more than 1 hr. cuz its dairy ( and wear a pad cuz its messy)

  50. QUESTION:
    can a yeast infection make tears/holes wider? Can monistat make these things worse if you are sensitive?
    sorry about asking so many questions recently, I keep trying to figure out what's going on ..

    So I have a yeast infection, caught it early on so didn't have symptoms, just hurt to be touched down there with the swab at the doctor's and stuff..
    So I've been taking monistat 7, and today is the sixth day of using it..
    every day I look to see if it looks better, because at the beginning of the infection the tissue was white and extra-delicate and stuff. So when I look to see how the infection is doing, I am noticing that it's getting better in that sense, but other things are being weird and it's freaking me out. Like the 2 slits along the inside of the labia minora that I pee from, are getting longer each time I look, as if they were more like cuts than natural holes and it looks/feels like they're tearing the skin or something.. And before, I hadn't even been able to SEE the tiny hole that is the urethra in the center of them, and now I see it and it's getting slightly larger each time and looks like IT'S tearing/cutting into surrounding skin. The two hole/slit things on the fifth day of me looking, are almost CONNECTED now by a small tear or something.
    And I had a flap of skin near my hymen before that was torn I think, and it was there before, but now it's almost like there's a literal HOLE going through it, and it's gotten deeper and "tearing" closer to the top...

    Could I just be extra sensitive to the medication and that's happening?
    Or could that be from the infection itself?
    Or is this just normal..

    They did the lab work to determine the yeast infection the other day, but it won't come back for 3 weeks (I'm sure that's what it was though since the monistat has gotten rid of the whitish coloring on the surrounding tissue)... I'm hesitant to go back to the doctor so soon before the results come back though because they might just say to wait until those come in so they'll know if anything is wrong.
    My worry is that by the time they get in, since day by day these "tears" seem to be getting worse, there'll be too much damage to heal!! I never asked them about the tears at the appointment, because I had an infection- it wasn't SUPPOSED to look normal then, and even so it was still pretty close to the norm and this was last week! But now I'm just concerned because the infection is clearing up but there is skin getting cuts/tears/fissures...something.

    What's wrong with me?!
    I'm worried that by sunday my urethra slit things will be going from top to bottom running the length of the minora and my hymen will be a mess with random flaps of skin tearing in different directions all the way up to the urethra, way further up than it is supposed to, and I've never even had sex!

    • ANSWER:
      Wow... I'm not sure what you're describing, but it doesn't sound anything like any yeast infection I've ever known. I'd go back to the doctor ASAP. Ouch...
