Yeast infections are a part of life and no matter how heard you try you just can't avoid them. There are many causes for a yeast infection in women such as hormonal changes when you become pregnant. Most women and men are turning away from over-the-counter prescription medications because they don’t work at all and actually make their yeast infections worse! Natural home remedies for treating yeast infection with hydrogen peroxide is one of the leading sources of treating yeast infections right from your own home.

Cures for a yeast infection are hard to come by, but with hydrogen peroxide, curing yeast infections has never been so easy.

-Vaginal itching

-Vaginal irritation

-Thick, white, possibly curd-like vaginal discharge

Hydrogen can be purchased at just about any local supermarket or pharmacy. It is usually in a brown bottle and is labeled as 3% hydrogen peroxide. Every time that I have ever gotten a reacurring yeast infection I have always been able to cure it with hydrogen peroxide. Reaccuring yeast infections are no fun and the reason why I had so many of them was simply due to the fact that I was pregnant. I was going through constant hormonal changes which triggered my yeast infections. Please don’t let yeast infections ruin your life. By simply using hydrogen peroxide you can say goodbye to your yeast infections forever! I wish you the best of luck in your search for curing your yeast infection.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there any good yeast infection cures?
    This is very embarressing, but I think I have a a year infection. Been looking at yeast infection cures on the internet, but there is so much stuff that is recommended that I dont know what to do.

    It isn't too bad, but it is uncomfortable. I'd rather not go the doctor if I can take care of it myself.

    Thanks for any help!

    • ANSWER:
      I had a really bad yeast infection about 6 months ago. It burned like crazy, much worse than the 2 other times I had mild ones.

      My friend recommended this good guide on it - I was able to treat with with name natural remedies, and didn't have to go to the doctor or anything. I got the guide from this site:

      http://www.theyeastinfectionsolution.com

      Definitely would recommend it. After I followed all of the advice i was able to cure it in 2 days. All the recommendations are natural, too, which was a plus.

  2. QUESTION:
    I think I have a yeast infection, what are some cures?
    Im a 21 year old guy who thinks he has a yeast infection. My gf recently had it and we had sex the day she realized she had had it. Now its been a week and I barely got this rash under my penis, it burns. Im asking what are some cures to cure yeast infections for guys? Can I use vagisil?

    • ANSWER:
      It's possible for a man to contract a genital yeast infection if he has unprotected sexual intercourse with a partner who has a genital yeast infection. However, just because your girlfriend has a yeast infection doesn't mean you will get one too. Sexual transmission of yeast infections is uncommon.

      Many people are under the impression that only women get genital yeast infections, but men get them too. Prolonged antibiotic use increases the risk of a yeast infection. Also, men with diabetes or impaired immune systems, such as those with HIV, are more susceptible to yeast infections.

      Signs and symptoms of a male yeast infection include a reddish rash, itching or burning at the tip of the penis. Fortunately, most male yeast infections are easily treated with an over-the-counter antifungal treatment, such as Monistat (yes, men can use it too). Apply the medication directly to the affected skin twice daily for a week. If the rash doesn't go away, or if it recurs frequently, consult your doctor.

      If you and your partner have symptoms of genital yeast infection, it's important that you both be treated. Otherwise, you may keep reinfecting each other. Also, it's generally recommended that you refrain from sexual contact until all signs and symptoms of the infection are gone.

      These include;
      1. Take Warm sitz baths, using herbs and teas can help relieve the itching and burning.
      2.Over the counter drugs can be used at times.
      3.Proper hygiene is a must and should be implemented.
      4.Cutting the conditions for the growth of yeasts by the elimination of immunosuppressive drugs and antibiotics (if you are taken), and dietary deprivation of the candida of those foods on which it is nourished and flourishes.
      5.Destruction of yeast proliferation in the body.
      6.Rebalancing and strengthening of the body's immune system for the restoration of proper function.
      7.Reduce stress, too much stress triggers yeast infections. Again, the immune system comes into play here. Since women do too much for their family and others, they need to address the issues of stress and relaxation.
      8. Avoid eating sugary foods that triggers these infections as well.

  15. QUESTION:
    Will an untreated yeast infection cure itself or cause bigger problems?
    I was taking antibiotics for an infection in my eyelids and ended up with a yeast infection (happens to me every time I take amoxicillin). I cannot afford to buy the cream to treat it, period. Because you can buy the cream OTC now, my insurance company will not cover with a prescription. Will it eventually go away on it's own?

    • ANSWER:
      Just ask your MD to write for rx only diflucan. An untreated yeast infection will not cure itself.

  16. 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.

  17. QUESTION:
    Eating yogurt to cure yeast infection?
    I've had yeast infections before but i have never tried eating yogurt to cure it. For the past 3 weeks i've ate yogurt daily and have taken yeast infection pills. Recently, clumps of yeast have discharged my body as if i used monistat or something, and i'm wondering is this a sign of the infection leaving or is it worsening?

    • ANSWER:
      Eating yogurt will NOT cure your yeast infection. Sorry.

      Some crazy hippie radicals who are opposed to medicine and chemicals say that if you take a tampon and submerge it in plain yogurt and then stick it up the vagina that it will cure it. You have to do this like 3x a day and leave the tampon in while laying down for like a half hour or something.

      I'd rather just take the pill or use monistat.

      The clumps of discharge you're seeing is from the yeast infection. Not from eating yogurt. Go out and take the night time one dose monistat.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is the best at home (box) yeast infection cure?
    I've heard the yogurt thing, but i'm a little skeptical about that, I get them reoccurring quite often so i'm looking for a boxed one to solve the one i have now and maybe some suggests on how to keep my reoccurring yeast and bladder infections away. Perhaps a pill, or natural something anything that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      Perhaps this home remedy might help:
      "Take half a cup of honey into the bathroom. Sit on the toilet and apply honey liberally over the affected area. Let it stay for five to ten minutes and then bathe to clean up. Do this twice a day, morning and just before going to bed at night."

  19. QUESTION:

    I wish i could afford her book, but me and my family are not doing well cash wise. I have suffered from yeast infections for years, but have never found a cure. Can anyone tell me the Secret?

    • ANSWER:
      While I have not purchased her e-book, and I am not a lawyer, I would imagine that telling the secret from an e-book, especially on a forum such as this, would be a major copyright violation.

  20. QUESTION:
    What are some easy ways to cure a yeast infection?
    I've been using Vagisil for awhile now, but it doesn't seem to work. I was reading that yogurt can really help. Has anyone ever tried it? Did it cure the infection? Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      Vagisil only controls symptoms, like itching. Try an over the counter medication like Monistat and use it exactly according to the package directions. That is easier, less messy and more reliable than yogurt.

  21. QUESTION:

    Can someone tell me the home remedy for curing yeast infection in a dogs ears?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't think that yeast is common in a dogs ears. Yeast usually happens in warm moist areas. Anyway yeast prefer alkaline environments. Dilute vinegar, 1/2 cup to a quart of water, can be put on a washcloth and the ears wiped out several times per day. If no help, see the vet. Would not use the creams for human skin in a dogs ear.

  23. QUESTION:
    How to cure yeast infection?
    I`ve experienced some problems recently, due to a yeast infection. This has been going on for some time now, and, anyways, every time I go to the doctor, he gives me this lotion, that I put on for about two weeks, the yeast infection goes away. But, after a month or so, it comes back again. Why is this? I`m really sick and tired of this damn yeast infection and I want to find a permanent cure. Please help! I`ve tried all kind of yeast infection treatments, but nothing helps in the long run.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, it`s rather normal that you experience these problems. You see, yeast infection attacks almost 75% of people on this planet. But, the worst part is, it is totally mistreated. All the drugs that medical establishments provide you with, are just curing the symptoms, not the root problem. This is why you have comebacks of yeast infections over period of times. You must delve into the problem deeper, and cure the root of the problem. In my experience, this can only be done through this natural yeast infection cure that I stumbled upon recently, that has worked wonders for my patients, as well as for myself (remember, we all have this problem). You can see for yourself, and checkout the treatment I strongly recommend. I honestly hope this will help, actually, strike that, this yeast infection cure will 100% help you. The link is below.

  24. QUESTION:
    I have a yeast infection, any cures that don't involve tampons?
    I have recently developed a yeast infection 'down below'... apparently if you put plain yoghurt on the end of a tampon and wear it for an hour, it is supposed to make a big difference, but i don't wear tampons so do you have any other ideas to help cure it?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey!

      Indeed there is a solution... the best way is to use a pessary, "Canestan" which works wonders, but as you're against sticking things "up there" then you can instead use the cream on the itchy area (i know how itchy it gets - nightmare!).. and also there is an oral tablet you can get. All of these are available from your local pharmacy, though they are a little pricey (i think around £9 from when i last bought one). Just take the tablet and the problem should quickly clear up.

      Oh and avoid tight, closely fitted underwear! You want to give things space down there - best to let that area breathe rather than have the ideal condition for the yeast infection. Stick with bog-standard, loose-ish granny pants for now.. not cool, but definitely less itchy!

      Hope that helps, and good luck :D

  25. QUESTION:
    then what? is a 7 day yeast infection treatment still good?
    iso lets say ya have 2 NON expired 7 day treatment yeast infection cures(creams). would ya use both for 7 days? are they going to work the same?one is clotrimazole and the other terconazole....now what?

    • ANSWER:
      I would only use one. You don't want to risk the drugs somehow interacting with each other or making each other ineffective. Try the one and if it doesn't work see a doctor for a prescription so that they can see what strand it is or try the other brand.

  26. QUESTION:
    Are there any cures for a yeast infection that don't use applicators? I'll rate best answer?

Do you need a doctor for a cure? I mean like do you need a doctor to find the right cure? Can you just buy 1 at the store without a presciptsion?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat a lot of yogurt, like yoplait they are like a dollar each if not on sale. there are cultures in yougurt that kill the bacteria in yeast.
      drink lots of water
      and go get an over the counter yeast infection pack. Monistat has worked the best for me. it's around 15-20 dollars depending on which one you get.
      it's the quickest easiest way to cure yourself, just make sure you follow the directions on the pack.

      if you do all of the above and it still doesn't help you need to see a doc cause that means it's not a yeast infection
      hope this helps

  32. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection home cures?
    I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection. It's swollen and really itchy. Sometimes it burns when i pee. Lol. Are there any Home remedies that can cure it soon? Also, if you take a urine test and blood test at the doctors, can they tell if you have a yeast infection? Because I'm going to the doctors soon for a check-up. :[ Lastly, if it's itchy down there and you scratch it a lot, is it bad? Does it make it worse? Pleaaseee help! :[

    • ANSWER:
      There are home remedies, but honestly none of them are that dependable. The best way to deal with a yeast infection is with the over the counter creams made for the purpose. Most common brand is Monostat, and it will be sold near where the usual feminine products are sold. You can also get a cream that will help relieve the itch and burn sensations as well. It's best to use the three day product, to be most certain- although you can also use the traditional seven day treatment. If there are still symptoms of the infection after you use the three day version, repeat again using the seven day one. At the same time you treat yourself, you will want to gather up all your undies. Wash them in the hottest water you can, and bake dry in a dryer. Those that can't handle hot water or bake dry need to be microwaved for a couple minutes. You must also avoid sex while you are treating yourself as well. It won't hurt the mister, but he'll just give it back to you again. When you see a doctor, to be able to diagnose a yeast infection they have to take a swab and a sample of the discharge to look at under a microscope. The infection will not show up in either a urine test or a blood test- although some of the other sexually transmitted diseases will. You need to treat yourself as soon as possible, using the right cream. It's not healthy to be scratching the itch, as it harms tender tissues even more, and won't solve the problem. In fact, it can just make it worse. Get to a store and get the cream. It usually works well within a day to make you much more comfortable. Nothing you eat- like yogurt, is going to help. Smearing yogurt on yourself won't either- because the source of the problem is inside where you can't reach it. While the yogurt can help the external itch, it just doesn't get to the root of the problem. So do yourself a favor and just buy the cream.

  33. 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)

  34. QUESTION:
    Terrible yeast infection, need cures - Please Help!!!?
    I have a terrible yeast infection right now. I got it from a nasty round of antibiotics. I've already taken 3 Diflucan to no avail. I'm afraid to use Monistat because the last time I used it I had a serious reaction that caused burns on my labia.

    Is there another cure or treatment for it that I can try at home? I have a gyno appointment on Thursday but I'm not sure if I can take the burning until then.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Speaking from experience, when you've got a really potent yeast infection that will not go away from non-presciption meds, you'll usually need a stronger prescription from your doctor, so my guess is that is what will happen when you go. It was also the case with myself when pack after pack of Monistat didn't do the trick.

      What you could try in the meantime is eating more yogurt. There is a bacteria in yogurt that fights back against yeast *though normally, this helps in the earlier, milder stages*. Have you tried Monistat 7? Monistat 1 and 3, for sure, are more consentrated and will likely burn, but 7 has a much milder dosage in each supository, less likely to burn and more likely to clear up the infection as you get a new fresh dose of medicine every day.

      Again, if you've had the infection for some time now, or if it's just a strong case, then ya, you'll have to wait for a doc to prescribe something. Sorry!

      Hope this helps some :)

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt, but it's only a 50/50 chance it will work.

  37. QUESTION:
    are there any home remedies or cures for a yeast infection?
    Just wondering...those creams freak me out.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, most people say eat plain yogurt. But the thing is how to prevent them. First, yeast infections comes from a lot of things. too much sugar, imbalanced hormonal changes in the body, not wearing the right underwear, too much floral in the vaginal area, and or anything that irritates the vagina. You can make sure that you wipe from front to back and take showers, instead of a hot bath. keep it dry. cotton under is best. yeast grows in moist, dark areas. make sure that you are treating yeast. because sometimes women think it is yeast but it is bacterial vaginosis. that has to treated with a prescription. and also your doctor can give you a pill. i think you take it only once for that time. and it will clear up in seven days, but the symptoms you will feel relieve much earlier than seven days.

I know that is disgusting.. So can anyone tell me what I can do to cure this? I've read yogurt can help? Are there any products you can buy from the store? Thank you!!

    • ANSWER:
      Dont drink any sodas at all at this point! Drink lot's of water and maybe a glass of cranberry juice. This will help clean out your system, and also helps you stay fresh! There is also medications for yeast infections in most grocery stores, close to the feminine products! Creams have always seemed to work the best! I hope you get to feeling better soon!!!

  39. QUESTION:
    How do I cure a yeast infection when I am allergic to the over the counter drugs like Monistat and Gynolotrim?
    I am allergic to all the over the counter yeast infection treatments. Diflucan worked for about 10 days and now it is back. I can't afford to go to the Dr. (I pay 100%) to get a prescription every time I get a yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      If you try the baking soda douche - be careful as I've heard the opposite - I've heard baking soda will actually make a yeast infection worse.

      Have you tried tea tree oil or garlic (be careful as the oil does sting.

      Consider going on a yeast-free diet, no sugar (as sugar feeds yeast), no alcohol - so no cakes, candy, sweets, etc.

      *Take Lots of acidophilus/probiotics or eat Unsweetened (Plain) Yogurt
      *Avoid tight jeans and other tight pants
      *Wear cotton underwear during the day, no thongs
      *Wear no underwear to bed
      * Put a tsp of apple cider vinegar in a 6-8 ounce glass of water and drink it 2-3 times a day.

      Try

      Fill a bathtub with just enough warm, not hot, water to create a sitz bath (enough water to cover your groin and just up to your belly). Add 2 cups of raw apple cider vinegar and sit in the bath with your knees folded toward your body (not stretched out flat). You can stay in this bath mixture for 15 minutes. Gently pat dry and make sure you are very dry before putting any clothes on. Wear only cotton underpants, preferably washed in natural unscented detergent.

      Good luck!

  47. QUESTION:
    Is it true you can cure a yeast infection with garlic?
    I was reading this question someone had asked about natural home remedies for getting rid of a yeast infection. One lady said to leave a clove of garlic in your vagina overnight. Does that really work?

    • ANSWER:
      I would not use a whole glove of garlic, but you take the garlic sections and skin them and thread some string through the tops and insert them overnight and pull on the sting to remove what is left. Some people will insert yogurt but this needs to be plain live active yogurt from the health and natural department. Eating alot of this yogurt should be a regular part of diet. Eat lots of fruits and veg.
      You need to know if your body had a yest infection and why- we have a natural amount of yeast in our bodies and sometimes people have an excessive amount of it. I would suggest taking acidophilus 5 billion - milk free with FOS. This will help put the natural flora back into you system and help control the situation. Also drink alot of fluids. If it continues and becomes bothersome then it is time to see the doctor but continue taking the acidophilus. Hope that heps

Cure Yeast Infections Permanently

Written By: admin - Dec• 28•11

A yeast infection home remedy is preferable to drugs. Yeast infection is a condition caused by an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans. A yeast infection can sometimes flare up after a round of antibiotics. The antibiotics kill off a lot of the 'good' bacteria in your system, which allows the candida to run amok in your system.

Nature has provided us with many excellent ways to get relief from the symptoms of the yeast infection while clearing it up. Over the counter or prescription drugs will mask the symptoms, but do not treat the root problem. That is one reason I prefer a yeast infection home remedy instead.

Home Remedies For Yeast Infection:

Yogurt - Eating yogurt with live active cultures daily can help prevent or help clear up a case of yeast infection according to some. The Lactobacillus Acidophilus bacteria in live or active culture yogurt is said to help reduce the fungal growth and help restore balance to your system.
Vinegar Bath - Combine one cup of sea salt and one cup apple cider vinegar to your bath water and soak for 30 minutes. This will create an acidic environment that the yeast don't like. Fans of apple cider vinegar also swear by adding two tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of water and drinking this mixture twice a day while infected.

Colloidal Silver taken daily has been claimed by some to quickly clear up candidiasis.

Tea Tree Oil - Saturate a tampon with tea tree oil and leave inserted overnight. (yogurt with live cultures could be substituted for the tea tree oil) Repeat nightly for a week.

Aloe may quickly help with the itching when spread on the affected area.

Grapefruit Seed Extract. 10-15 drops in your morning juice everyday for a month has been said to permanently clear up an infection. Some people also recommend a daily dose of olive leaf extract together with the grapefruit seed extract.

Douching - Some claim to get much needed relief by douching using a mixture of grape seed extract and warm water. Others have found relief in a vinegar douche. Simply mix one-quarter cup of vinegar with one quart of water and use as a douche to create an acidic vaginal environment.

Women and men have been treating yeast infections using home remedies for centuries. Home remedies are becoming increasingly popular and wherever you go, sufferers will have their own yeast infection home remedy which they believe to be the best.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the only cure to a yeast infection?
    this is really annoying me. i used a 1day cream medicine and it did not work. people also say they only work for a few days, then the infection comes back. then, there are antibiotic pills. i read those dont really work either, all they do is mask the infection. well, i recently heard about this spray- medicine called YEASTROL. it says it permanently gets rid of the infection AND prevent one from coming. sound to good to be true. the point im trying to get to is there really any medicine that can get rid of a yeast infection permanently? or do i just have to live with this pain in the ass for the rest of my life? please help im only 14..
    when you say "doctor" do you mean "obgyn" ? please be more clear with that.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay coming from a person who has at least three (ugh) yeast infections per year. the creams are not worth a crap. they are messy,uncomfortable (like you need more of that) and you have to use them at bed time which is a real drag. so for me that is not an option because I'm less likely to finish the medicine and because of meds I do take yeast can get out of control. My doctor, meaning my regular family doctor, not a specialist like a ob/gyn, prescribes me Diflucan. It's a one pill anti-fungal medication.I can take it as soon as I get the script and it pretty much takes care of everything in 12-24 hours. then he has me take one more about four days later to help clear out any remaining excess yeast. Along with eating about a cup of yogurt with live cultures a day, no panties at night unless of course its my monthly and staying away from perfumed laundry soap or heavily perfumed bath soap has helped me a lot.Its been almost a year since my last infection. I also try to avoid sugary stuff when I do have an infection and up my water intake.I know its not much but look at it this way, at least women of our time have a ways to get rid of yeast that are effective. a hundred years ago you would not have much of a choice and you'd have to suffer with it or use some home remedy that didn't work. I'd try the Diflucan. I'm much rather swollow a pill and have the whole deal over with in 12 hours rather than using the cream that either doesn't work or it takes 3-7 days to finish a whole course of medicine and still be itching and uncomfortable while using the medicine

  8. QUESTION:
    what can remove permanently bacteria and Infections?
    I got skin diseases - itchy at some area. I workout my body, sweat and heat get over there and i get very itchy (Rate from 1 to 10 - 10 most itchy), i scratch until skin torn. So damn itchy how not to scratch. This started went i was working in a very hot and oily machine factory for one year and that day i have not enough money to see doctor and cure this itchiness and it get very worst. Alot of boils and torn skins until reach Infections. I am applying prickly heat powder but still itchy went i sweat.

    What medicine or cream or food or soap can cure from this diseases - even i get cut or whatever - nothing can diseases grow in me? What really can stop itchiness? How long does it takes to cure to normal skin?

    Is it good that i take this centrum multivitamins? can that cure my skin diseases or itchiness?

    Folliculitis
    Boils
    Impetigo
    Cellulitis

    Fungal Infections
    Ringworm
    Athlete's foot
    Jock itch
    Yeast infections, also called thrush

    Pls help me

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you're allergic to the toxins your body is trying to purge out through sweat and the skin. And it's probably some toxin you absorbed at the factory.

      You can apply benadryl cream to reduce the itchiness and the allergic reaction to the toxins. Use your regular soap when you wash, but nothing too strong. We do need some of the natural skin oil to protect your skin. The main thing you need to do is purge the toxins out of your body. Since money is an issue, go to an organic health store or the organic section in a big supermarket and locate the homeopathic section. Purchase the remedy for heavy metal poisoning, see if that helps. If you don't see any change after 2 weeks, try remedy for allergies. If that doesn't work, then you need to see a homeopathic doctor to custom make a homeopathic medicine for you.

  9. QUESTION:
    Experience with the treatment of BXO (Balanitis xerotica obliterans), is it a permanent condition?
    I have been having this irritation on my penis for a few months that casued red bumps to form on the head of my penis and recently a white film to appear on the shaft. This started ever since my wife got pregnant. Initially I thought it was a yeast infection I caught from her. Went to three different docs and they agreed and gave me anti fungal creams. After a month I was no better. Yesterday I went to a urologist and he indicated he thought it was BXO or Balanitis xerotica obliterans. He prescribed a strong topical steroid cream. Already it seems to be working. However I'm scared this is a permanent condition, after reading about it online. I'm already circumcised so that can't be a permanent fix for me. So has anyone heard of a circumcised male getting this condition? Also, does anyone know if corticosteroid creams can permanently cure the condition? Thanks in advance for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      Potent topical steroids can control it significantly and if the inflammation is controlled, will prevent skin cancer developing within the lesion

    • ANSWER:
      It is a skin condition so circumcised or uncircumcised males can get it. While it may not be permanent, it could be recurrent. If the medication works to keep it in control, use it as needed. Cleaning the area with a wash like Aveeno and a wash cloth (coarseness of the fabric helps to slough the skin cells) may help also keep it in control.

So has anyone heard of a circumcised male getting this condition? Also, does anyone know if corticosteroid creams can permanently cure the condition? Thanks in advance for your help.

    • ANSWER:
      Balanitis is actually not uncommon in circumcised males. A study I read once actually showed that it occurred more often in circumcised males compared to intact males.

      It's basically inflammation of the glans (head) of the penis. Steroid creams help to reduce inflammation. Whether or not you'll have to use the cream continuously in order to keep it at bay - only time will tell. You can discuss that and other treatment methods with your doctor and weigh the risks against the benefits for your situation.

      If you like, you can keep using the cream until you're pretty much back to normal (maybe a little longer, even), and then stop using it for a few days and see what happens. Sometimes, all it takes is a good round of steroids to help clear it up, and then you're good to go.

      A friend of mine's son had balanitis, and he was given oral antibiotics for it and it cleared up and hasn't come back. Based on what I've read and heard, antibiotics seem like a pretty routine treatment for it. You can talk to your doctor about that as well.

  12. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection?
    My girlfriend has outbreaks every now and then, is there a way to permanently cure this? And could I catch an infection too if I don't use a condom? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      There is an herbal med that you can get @ CVS or Walgreens called AZO Yeast (a Gelcap) that helps regulate your natural bacteria. I had frequent outbreaks and decided to look into it and I tried everything. This stuff worked.

      Also, eat yogurt regularly (acidophilus is KEY). I also found that you can get the "Clotrimazole" (read the active ingredients in the anti-fungal cream) in the athlete's foot section of the store (Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, etc.) for really cheap (big tube!). It's the same drug used in the expensive vaginal creams. Slather it on every day until the infection is gone and use it once a week after that to prevent infection. Vaginal yeast infections can be transmitted by the guy you're sleeping with, so make sure to urinate after sex EVERY TIME (bladder infections are very close to the same thing, take "cranberry tablets" also). And wash off and put the cream on and keep eating yogurt!

      I hope your friend gets better cause these are bad! I thought I was a lost cause until I began this regimen. I never have to do anything anymore. When I notice the beginning of one, I eat extra yogurt and put the cream all over and avoid sex until I'm normal again (usually only one day). Sex pushes infection further. Yay for good, natural cures!!

      Good luck, Chickie!! My thoughts are w/ your friend!!

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast Infection is a serious problem amongst women. Some years back, my wife had the same problem when pregnant. She suffered from all sort of problems including hitching. We tried so many products to no avail until we were introduced to Yestrol a homeopathic product that works like nothing else. It has no side effect and she nevere experienced again. You may give it a trial, I hope it works for you.

THREE TYPES OF YEAST INFECTION ARE:"THE ITCHERS" "THE TURF FIGHTERS" AND "THE KILLERS"
"The Ichers," although essentially harmless, is extremely annoying and can impose on your everyday functions, making it impossible for you to work, play, date, read, enjoy eating, and other functions.

THE TURF FIGHTERS
Superficial yeast infection can happen to any one and affects immune competent people. Among the 200 species associated with these fungi, only 25 yeast genera are infecting humans.

The male yeast infection is not really fatal but it can be a great threat to your health, sometimes it can be awfully embarrassing and always irritating. An ounce of yeast infection prevention is better than a pound of cure so goes the old saying, but if you already have it you can get rid of it quickly.

THE FATAL "KILLERS"
It is three times more common in men than women.

WHAT IS MALE YEAST INFECTION?
This very simple test can be done by anyone at home to know if you have the infection or not. During sex, the penis stays inside the female vaginal tract which is very warm enabling the fungi to awake and spread out. Cold and other infections are cleared up by antibiotics but antibiotics also kill the good bacteria. These bacteria will pierce the lining of your intestine and encase your heart. Penile yeast infection causes dry and cracked-up skin at the surface of the penis. Although there are around 70 trillion good bacteria in the digestive system but when they are killed off by the yeast infection, the immune system becomes weak so the infection spreads to other parts of the body. These types of foods are part of our daily fare, we eat them, but unknowingly, they are threatening our health. Jock itch is more common in men than yeast infection.

SOME CURES AND TREATMENTS
The most common ones are over the counter medication (OTC) used by most yeast infected males which are also the ones used by the females because the infection affecting the males are also the infection affecting the females. Other practitioners recorded that men who are trying to cure a yeast infection with OTC medication eat yogurt daily.

YEAST INFECTION CAN BE TREATED AND CURABLE
Aside from the medical anti-fungal medication, OTC or prescribed by the doctor, there are natural anti-fungal products which were used with proven success. To use:put a few drops of white vinegar on the cream, mix well and then apply to the infected area.

NATURAL CURES THAT YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO APPLY
The silver liquid 400 kills penile yeast quickly. The probiotics for yeast is a capsule which you take directly in the mouth or apply directly on the penis. White vinegar has been pinpointed as an effective remedy.

    how to cure a yeast infection in men?

    • ANSWER:
      um yah men DO get yeast infections, mainly from women (some get continually from some sorts of birth control) like he said, but also it's from being moist and wet .... just like women, he needs to try to keep as dry as possible..Clean and dry..cream will work the stuff for women, might kinda feel funny when putting it on, but almost instantly cures it.
      (even if they are clean as a whistle, some athletes sweat a lot and helllooo even get "jock itch" and or athletes foot, both which are fungal or yeast infections, from being sweaty during extended work outs etc)

  6. QUESTION:
    how long does it take to cure a yeast infection in a mans penis????
    my bf got a yeart infection from being on these meds. (he didn't give it to me) but im just wondering how long it will take to cure it with antiungal cream he's being using it for about a 5 days or so and all the symtioms are gone, but theres still some discharge and stuff but no itching and burning any more.

    • ANSWER:
      If there is a discharge it sounds more like he has the clap aka clamidia.
      A yeast infection inside the urethra is really out of the ordinary because urine is acidic and the yeast doesn't have a good place to sit and grow it keeps getting washed out.
      Thrush on the head of the penis sure can happen but inside the urethra is a tough one.

  7. QUESTION:
    do yeast infections occur in men sometimes if you were sexually active with a female who found out she had one?
    Years ago a doctor said this is possible and, i think i might have this. , I cant afford a doctor right now,and years ago i had the same thing happen. what can i guy do to cure this if your short on funds to go back to the doc. ? I did tests last year for std's and they were all negative.has anybody else out there had this symptom in the past.Is there a medication out there that wont cost me an arm and a leg with a huge doctor bill ?

    • ANSWER:
      It is definitely possible to get a yeast infection from sex with a woman with one. And if you have sex while you have it, you can pass it back to her. You can actually get lotrimin - the cream for athlete's foot. It is easy to find and inexpensive. Eating plain yogurt every day can help and a bath with vinegar will help relieve itching.

      Good luck!

  8. QUESTION:
    Can you cure a male yeast infection with otc creams?
    Can you cure a male yeast infection with otc creams?
    can you cure a male yeast infection with otc creams?
    like monistat? If a man has a yeast infection can he just put some external cream over his penis for several days and cure it? I don't KNOW for sure I have it, my girlfriend had one and we had sex without a condom (she's on the pill). I just found out I could have one and not know it, then we'll pass it back and forth. can I use some cream from a monistat?
    I don't feel any different, so I'm probably not infected.
    Does it make any difference if it's circumsized? I'm circumsized, so it's not like I have the foreskin for it to grow in.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes you should be able to cure a yeast infection with the same otc creams that women use.

      And circumcised guys can get all the same infections that intact guys can get.

      You and your gf should use condoms until you're both clear. But you might not have it anyway...

  9. QUESTION:
    Consistent yeast infections...?
    I hope someone has had this extremely annoying problem before. I was on the pill for two years, but went off because in reaction to the pill i was getting extremely bad yeast infections. I have had diflucan, and it is the only thing that cures it, but i have to use it along with Monistat. I have been off the pill for about a year and a half. The other problem was i had somehow given the infection to my bf (who is uncircumcised). His doc told him that he would have it forever, so basically whenever we have unprotected sex (which isn't often) i always come up with a yeast infection again, even though he has a special cream that he has continuously used. I was wondering if ANYONE had had this problem before, because neither of our doctors had heard of this before. I have read that men can get yeast infections, but it is very rare. We have both been tested for STDs multiple times because of this and everything is negative. Andwe lost our virginity to each other, andhaventhadsexw/ne1else!

    • ANSWER:
      His doctor was wrong. My friend had this problem for a long time. It ended up that her and her husband were just passing the yeast infection back and forth to each other. His doctor gave him a cream that cured his infection for good. And she also was treated and now takes Azo yeast to prevent getting them in the further. You should really see another doctor. It is not that uncommon.

  10. QUESTION:
    Do i have a yeast infection on my testicle?
    Just a couple of days my testicle started to become itchy and i don't know how that happen. Just a day after i decided to see what was going on so when i was taking a shower i pulled back the skin that was covering the head of the penis and what i saw was the skin that was covering the head of the penis, it had rash or blister on parts of it and now it's also dirtier than ever. Since it was just on the skin i didn't worry that much but then a day later my penis was more itchy than ever so i decided to check again and this time it was on my penis too. That's when the real worry comes, i decided to research today to see what type of testicular problem it was and when i found out. IT WAS A YEAST INFECTION >.> At first i thought it was just some allergic reaction from the ramen noodles i've been eating. I didn't eat ramen noodles for a while and i thought my immune system build up an allergic reaction to it ( weird huh?). Anyway, just how do i treat testicle yeast infection? Is it common or something rare to have yeast infection in men? I can't go to the doctor on my own :( i have to wait 3 more years to get a license, and i'm sure ain't gonna talk to my old man about it. He's going to be like what's wrong with you? or like, I've never heard of such things as yeast infection in men. Me and my old man isn't close so i don't ever feel comfortable talking about some personal problem i have. If i just leave my yeast infection i know it can get worse but can it get better? Ever had a yeast infection? what did you do to cure it? nothing? anyway i am really worried because this is the first time in 15 years of my life that i had it and i don't know what to do :( any cure to this beside going to the doc or buying over the counter drug?

    • ANSWER:
      not sure if serious....

  11. QUESTION:
    Is it alright to finger when you have a yeast infection?
    I have a moderate yeast infection in which I am using an antibiotic cream in which I inject. I know that you should not have sex but is it alright for a man to finger you or will that cause the infection to worsen or not cure?

    • ANSWER:
      Dirty fingers (YUK) will make it worse. If he doesn't wash his hands before and after its just a bad situation. He could pass the yeast infection to other parts of each others body's. Such as in your mouth, and I doubt you want this. I just wouldn't do it, unless you want an even worse infection.

  12. QUESTION:
    How do you get rid of a yeast infection in a man WITHOUT medicine, creams, etc.?
    So I've looked up some info and have basically come to the conclusion that I have a Penile yeast infection. I was wondering if there are any normal cures for it, without using any kind of medicine you would have to buy, such as one meant for woman that can be used on men.

    P.S. I am uncircumcised and so its the foreskin that is irritated and I cant pull it down the head which I normally can. YES I'm a man, dont ask about the Avatar or Screen Name.

    • ANSWER:
      You need to go to the doctor because that yeast infection can spread to other warm parts of your body.

      Your doctor will likely prescribe Difulcan.

      Don't be shy about this, seek professional help....

  13. QUESTION:
    Natural Remedies for Male Yeast Infection?
    My b/f and I have been playing this fun game of "pass the yeast infection" I've been doing the over the counter treatment and he's been doing a similar regiem of putting Monistat (which we lovingly call Manistat) on the head of his penis etc. I recently read about a natural remedy for curing a female yeast infection which was inserting Garlic into the Vagina, worked magically as disgusting as it sounds and is cheaper than spending the 17 bucks on Monistat. He is uncircumsized (love it) and the cleanest man I've ever met. Soaking his member in vinigar and putting Monistat on it seems to clear up the infection, but after a month we seem to be back at square one with me running to the pharmacy and both of us sitting with an uncomfortable burn! I've heard there is an oral medication to cure this issue, but due to some sort of heart condition B/F can't take it... any natural remedies I haven't tried yet?? I mean the Garlic works amazing for me, but I can't imagine where he'd shove it LoL! We try to be as clean as possible as we have sex on average about 4 times EVERY night so pre-bed showers always come into play. We are oober clean, I don't douch I only use a mild "lady bits" soap on the outer parts of the vagina. I do use birth control which I've heard can cause Yeast issues. Any sugestions are welcome!!

    • ANSWER:
      I think it's possible that both of you are being a tad hyper-vigilant with hygiene (important though it is!). And it sounds like you're just constantly passing a yeast infection from one person to the other.

      For both of you, perhaps the soap might be partly the cause. Some soaps are just too strong to be used on such sensitive tissues and can cause irritation, dryness, redness, soreness, and yes even yeast infections. Use an unscented mild soap or no soap at all even, that might help.

      For him, just pulling back his foreskin when he showers is enough. When he's done, he should dry the area under his foreskin gently before returning his foreskin back over the glans (penis head). It could also help if he pulls back his foreskin when he urinates, to prevent urine from remaining under his foreskin (which doesn't help with the yeast infection).

      For both of you, eating yogurt and drinking cranberry juice can help. Exercise and a balanced diet are also important in helping your bodies keep yeast infections in check. Also, you may be having sex too much too soon. 4x a day is fine, but 4x a night every night is almost just asking for trouble. And he should use a condom every time until the yeast infection clears in both of you.

  14. QUESTION:
    AM I STARTING TO GET YEAST INFECTION?Is it yest infection?
    Im a 15 year old guy and i think Im starting to get yest infection?Im a virgin. how is it caused in men? how to cure?
    i have a tube of Monistat 7but it says vaginal yest infection. can i use that? is that what most antifungal medications for yest infection say?
    A few symptoms i currently have:
    red rash around the foreskin of my penis
    a little bit of white discharge(VERY LITTLE)although im not sure if it even is this. it could possibly be soap(i clean my penis with it during showers)
    and a weird funky smell sometimes

    It doesn't hurt when i pee and it doesn't itch at all. is it even yest infection? i hear my skin could be irritated from the soap i use or from masturbation(blood swells up from the force used to masterbate or something?)

    HELP PLEASE!?
    thank you
    THE RED RASH IS UNDER MY FORESKIN.

    • ANSWER:
      You have irritate your glans (penis head) from using soap to masturbate with.From this point on stop using soap for anything other then cleaning it and use a water based lubed for masturbation.

  15. QUESTION:
    If circumcision is a good thing... why are there no (continuted)...?
    Why can't you find even one intact (not circumcised) male doctor in favor of the procedure?

    If this sounds like an odd question, you might not be aware that 80-85% of the worlds men are intact (not circumcised), including doctors!

    Looking at that data, isn't it obvious that it's only claimed beneficial by those circumcised men and circumcised cultures to try and justify what was done to them (or what they are doing to their children)?

    And to anyone who claims that circumcision cures infections...
    75 percent of women get at least one yeast infection during their lifetime.
    50 percent of women get at least one UTI during their lifetime.
    Only 5.5% of intact (not circumcised) men get any type of infection during their lifetime.

    With that data, it's obvious that claims of reduced rates of infection are nothing more than a hypocritical excuse to mutilate.

    So please... find me JUST ONE intact (not circumcised) male doctor in favor of infant male circumcision. Can you find one for me please?
    Hey Look! Female circumcision prevents HIV! LOL!!!!

    Stallings et al. (2009) reported that, in Tanzanian women,
    the risk of HIV among women who had undergone FGC
    was roughly half that of women who had not; the association
    remained significant after adjusting for region, household
    wealth, age, lifetime partners, union status, and recent ulcer.

    for better or for worse?

    International AIDS Society.

    Female Circumcision greatly reduces risk of HIV infection

    "Researchers bent on proving that female circumcision heightens HIV risk in women could not explain away numbers that argued the opposite."

    3rd IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis and Treatment, July 24-27-05, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    • ANSWER:
      LOL I know.
      It's only the circumcised men who say that a circumcised penis is cleaner. And how the hell would they know?!?!? Has anyone actually thought of asking an UNcircumcised man if his penis is unsanitary? Yeah, well, 100% of them would give you a resounding NO!

      Most doctors are not in favour of circumcision...even American doctors.

      Few circumcised men want to admit something wrong was done to them. I think that's the biggest thing. So they justify it away as much as they can.

      You're right, infections are rare in men - circumcised or not. And when there is an infection it can be easily treated with antibiotics. To me slicing off a body part for the tiny chance that there will be an infection is a little over the top...

      Edit; Circumcision does not prevent HIV. The studies that claimed that were conducted in Africa, and the studies were absolutely biased. The circumcised men were told to wear condoms, and the uncircumcised men were told to not wear condoms. Hmmm....
      Oi, speaking of condoms, what a *great* way to reduce HIV transmissions! Wow! I'm going to teach my son safe sex instead of cut off a part of his body. :)
      it just so happens that the USA, where 80% of adult men are circumcised, have a *higher* rate of HIV than Europe, where only 5-10% of adult men are circumcised. So obviously circumcision isn't protecting American men. And it's obvious that European men aren't falling over from disease and infection despite their intact status.

  16. QUESTION:
    First time visiting a urologist?
    Hey all.

    Next Monday I'll be seeing a urologist for the first time (the only one in town). I have been suffering with chronic epdidymitis for the past eight months. It started when I got a yeast infection on my penis (yes, apparently men can get yeast infections). I treated the yeast infection but about a week later my right testicle really started to hurt.

    Over the months the pain has gradually lessened, but still is quite a burden on my life. Also, about four months ago my left testicle also began to hurt. I returned to the doctor and asked if maybe there was still some kind of infection, bacterial, fungal, yeast etc. He told me it was unlikely but not impossible. He prescribed me Meloxicam which is supposed to help with inflammation but really doesn't do anything for me. I've switched from the Meloxicam back to ibuprofen because it's more effective but I worry about the damage I could be doing by taking so much ibuprofen for so long. I take about 1,600 mg a day which is technically an overdose but it's just about the only way I can get through my day without every moment being dominated by testicle pain.

    My doctor has not offered me any kind of pain medication and seems to be treating the epididymitis like tennis elbow or something similar. Kind of like, "it won't kill you, sorry it sucks, just deal with it". It's really frustrating because, as I explained to my doctor, this isn't my elbow, it's my testicles. I mean what guy would be okay with permanent pain in his testicles?! How many movies have scenes where a guy is hit in the balls and then rolls on the ground for minutes on end? There's a reason talking about testicle pain makes every guy in the room wince.

    Anyway, my doctor set up an appointment with a urologist that I'm now three weeks into a month of waiting for. I'm really nervous about my appointment. The way my doctor talked about it, he doesn't think the urologist is going to have anything to contribute, and is probably just going to tell me to keep taking ibuprofen. I have told my doctor many times that ibuprofen isn't effective enough to even halfway remove my pain but again, he seems to be taking my condition very lightly. I realize it's not cancer or tuberculosis but come on, after eight months I think I deserve a moment of relief.

    A friend of mine is a physician's assistant and he told me there are nerve blocking injections and stuff that they can do. A lot of fancy medical talk that I don't really understand. All I want to know is whether I'm going to be wasting my time seeing a urologist and, if I am, what else can I do?

    Also, IF it came down to it, if I had both testicles removed that would cure the pain, right? I mean I'm only 23 and I definitely don't want to go through life as a eunuch but compared to permanent pain I'll take it. I realize I'll have to take hormone shots for the rest of my life and I'll never have kids but I'm serious when I say that the amount of pain I'm in justifies drastic measures.

    TL;DR: I'm nervous about going to the urologist for the first time. My doctor seems to think he won't be much help but I wanted a referral anyway. I have heard horror stories and great stories both so I don't know what to think. What kinds of things can I expect and will a urologist be more willing to take more drastic measures than "just keep taking ibuprofen and deal with it", which has not worked for my epdidymitis for the past eight months.
    In response to Jaman: Ouch, man. That really sucks. No I never would restrict my orgasms, I'm 99% sure the epididymitis was caused by the yeast infection I had that traveled down my urethra and into my testicles. My pain is constant, altthough less severe than it used to be. Actually oddly enough the one thing that helped me was taking GARLIC. Garlic contains allicin, which is a natural anti-fungal. For this reason I believe I may still have some kind of fungal infection and I will ask my urologist about this.

    Did they ever give you that nerve blocking shot that's supposed to stop the nerve transmissions into your testicles? Did they try antibiotics, anti-fungal, AND anti-yeast?

    Did you pain go away gradually or did it peak and then drop off abruptly? Like I said mine seems to be VERY slowly getting better but at this rate it could be years before it goes away.

    Also, ejaculation actually makes my pain worse, sometimes for hours. My doctor friend said this is probably just because ej
    *because ejaculation puts a strain on the epididymis glands.

    • ANSWER:
      Are you certain you have epididymitis? If the pain is in both testicles, and especially if it seems to alternate between them, I think you might have prostatodynia instead. Prostatodynia is pain originating in the prostate gland. It is usually caused by ejaculating too much or not enough. It is better for your prostate gland for your ejaculations to be regular. (I.e., if you're going to ejaculate 7 times a week, do it once a day instead of zero for five days and then three times on Friday and four times on Saturday.)

      Here is a regimen for prostatodynia:
      1) Ejaculate no more than three times a week until pain subsides;
      2) Take an anti-inflammatory once a day or more as needed;
      3) Cut out caffeine;
      4) Take a sitz bath or other hot bath in the evening.

      If you really have epididymitis, it can help to wear an athletic supporter when you're out.

  17. QUESTION:
    female problems--- Can a female get jock itch?
    I am overweight, I admit. I tend to sweat very heavy between my thights. This keeps me very wet 24/*7, which is not good. I have tried feminie powders. I sweat so much that it just makes the powder beads up and then i end up with yeast infections. The sprays does help me either. I have gone to the dr several times andhe keeps giving me creams to cure. But even after the creams the symptoms come back about 2weeks later. No, i dont have a disease. I have been tested. What I have seems like jock itch in men. Can anyone help me or have experience this? It is vey irrating , embarassind, & costly. My skin is basically raw there and it make me ashamed with my boyfriend. i have not slept with him in about 2 months now because I cant seem to gets this under control.

    • ANSWER:
      Lose weight, lose weight until your thighs don't touch.

      When you are at home, don't wear underwear! Wear loose fitting clothes (with creams/powders for your pain and itch) and give your skin a rest. I never wear underwear, it's comfortable when I am in sweats and what not. If you can be completly nude!

      Good luck ) I can imagine how uncomfortable you must feel.

  18. QUESTION:
    Little man I babysit has a bad bacterial infection on his little butt.?
    The four year old I babysit has a very bad bacterial infection on his anus. It is so raw and red it bleeds a bit. He's gotten where he won't eat, he holds his bowel movements so he's constipated now, and if he does go it is so hard that it makes him bleed even more. His mom has taken him to the doctor three times. They told her it is a yeast infection. They gave her medicine for the next month. They gave her hemmoroid creme to ease the pain. It has been three weeks now and his bum is still a mess. It doesn't appear to be getting any better. Yesterday he tried to have a bowel movement and it got stuck...he screamed and screamed...then later that night he had another while in the shower as if he couldn't help it and it just came out. More blood, more screams.

    Has anyone heard of a little guy getting a yeast infection? Does anyone know what can cure this thing? It just doesn't seem to be getting better no matter what his mom tries.

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like he has a really bad infection. Is he going to a pediatrician? She might want to try a different doctor or a specialist (proctologist)

      She might want to try gobs of Vaseline to coat his wounds and cover the Vaseline with a powder containing cornstarch.
      Running a bit of Vaseline into his anus may help with passing stools.

      I am assuming she has already investigated the possibility that he may have been abused sexually, and ruled it out.

  19. QUESTION:
    Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Trich...?
    So, I was diagnosed with Trichomoniasis about a month ago, about two months after starting a new sexual relationship. I found out because I went to get tested after having symptoms. I was tested for Trich, Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, and only the Trich test came back positive as far as I was informed. So I got treatment, but I took the pills incorrectly, by mistake. I also was given pills to give to my new boyfriend, and he took them, but he also took them wrong (wrong dosage at the wrong times). So I went back to the doctor, told them what happened, and she checked me again for gonorrhea, chlamydia and trich, and said I no longer had any STIs, and that even though I took the medicine wrong, I was still cured, but I could re-medicate to be sure, so I did, and I took the medicine right this time. She also informed me that I had a yeast infection, so I got pills for that. To sum it up, the yeast pills didn't work, so I took Monistat suppository, and then went BACK to the doctor, for a pap smear, and told her I still felt itchy. She confirmed with me again that I no longer had any STIs and that there was still yeast, but I'd get over it.

    THREE TIMES I was tested for gonorrhea, chlamydia and trich.

    Well, during all of that, my new boyfriend and I abstained from sex and we are still not sexually active. The whole time, he never got tested, and was just going off of what I was telling him! (Dumbass). So, when he wanted to have sex with me again, I obviously wouldn't (he's the one who gave me the STI!!!). I told him he had to get tested for everything, and show me his results ON PAPER before I ever would consider having sex again. So, he finally went to go get tested, and his results came back
    HIV negative
    Syphyllis negative
    Gonorrhea POSITIVE
    Chlamydia POSITIVE
    Trich negative

    How in the fukk is that possible!?!?! He actually had THREE STIs, and he only gave me one?! Is that possible? Is it possible for a man to have gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trich, and only pass on the trich to a female? Seriously. Because I had THREE tests that told me I don't have gonorrhea or chlamydia, and gonorrhea and chlamydia show up very quickly after unprotected sex, so I would know by now. Seriously wtf. I was sitting in the doctor's examining room WITH HIM when the doctor read the results, so I know this is accurate.

    Is this even possible? Has it ever happened?
    I'm asking because I want to know if I should be tested for a FOURTH time for these infections. I can't be walking around out here with gonorrhea and chlamydia and not know about it. I'm not cool with this whole situation... getting an STI from a guy who I was exclusive with... I never had an STI before and I don't sleep around. It's just gross... especially how he didn't RUN to the testing center after hearing he had trich. I had to MAKE him go. I can say definitively that I'm NEVER having sex with him again. THREE STIs!?!? WOW. You've gotta be a careless motherf'er. I'm so lucky he didn't have HIV. Anyway, so is this possible... for him to have THREE STI's and only give me one?

    • ANSWER:
      i have been with the same partner for over a year, and just now showed symptoms of trichomoniasis.. so it is possible you got lucky and only caught one.

  20. QUESTION:
    whats wrong with me?
    i am 20 years old. i have been dating the same man for four years. we were both virgins and have never cheated on one another. in December, i had been treated for my first ever UTI aswell as a yeast infection. For some reason however, the pain on my lower vagina whenever sex would occur and days after, would never go away. a good 5 days ago, i discovered that i have bacterial vaginosis ( i was also tested for STD - yes my vagina is STD free). i feel as though this will not cure my lower vaginal pain. afterall, it is only the skin that hurts! tonight, i have discovered that my vagina is puffy! abnormally puffy! the puffy that only occurs during and after sex. also, there is this strange yellow/greenish boogery discharge. at the moment, i am taking metronidazole for the bacteria vaginosis. all im asking from those of you who know what i am going through: why is this happening to me? is there a cure?i am eating yogurt and drinking cranberry juice. i exercise and am very healthy.help plz!!
    and no, i am currently not having sex. the last time was 2 going on 3 weeks ago
    the pain is only happening hear the vaginal opening! thats it

    • ANSWER:
      Some people are just very vulnerable to vaginal infections. You may have just been under a lot of stress and developed infections because your defenses were low.

      Bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections and UTI's can result from things like not wiping front-to-back after a bowel movement, any sexual activity that goes from the anus to the vagina (penises, toys or fingers included), and occasionally just bad luck. Yeast infections can also show up if you wear a wet bathing suit for too long or workout in underpants that don't breathe.

      If you were being treated with anti-biotics for the UTI first, it may have brought on the yeast infection. If they were both found at the same time, I would look at the reasons listed above. Anti-biotics can throw off the balance of organisms that naturally live in the vagina and allow yeast to overgrow. If you turn out to be prone to these infections, mention this to your doctor any time you are prescribed anti-biotics.

      If you've been cleared of everything else, the bacterial vaginosis should go away when you're finished with your anti-biotics. Take your doses on time and until the perscription is COMPLETE. Missing or skipping pills can make your anti-biotics less effective and extend your treatment. You should start to see an improvement in your symptoms after a few days of anti-biotics. Keep taking your pills to clear the infection completely. If you don't take them as directed the infection can return. If you end up showing signs of another yeast infection comming on, see your gynecologist for help right away.

      It is possible for your partner to carry yeast infections or the bacteria that can cause vaginosis. If you've been having sex while you were showing symptoms of yeast or bacterial vaginosis, you should probably have him tested as well. It is possible for him to pass these infections back to you if he's carrying them.

      In addition to the cranberry juice and yogurt, you need to be sure you're wiping front to back after the bathroom and that you're wearing panties made of breatheable fabric like cotton. You should also avoid wearing a pantyliner any time that its not absolutely neccessary. Basically do all you can to keep the area dry and comfortable. As a last note, once you've completely recovered and are having sex again, you need to be sure to urinate immediately after having sex. This helps flush out any bacteria to prevent UTI's.

    When you're hospitalized, it pays to be nice to your nurse . . .
    . . . even when you're feeling miserable. A bossy businessman learned the hard way after ordering his nurses around as if they were his employees. But the head nurse stood up to him. One morning she entered his room and announced, "I have to take your temperature." After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth. "No, I'm sorry, the nurse stated, "but for this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer." 
    This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his bottom.
After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay just like that until I get back!" She left the door to his room open just a little on her way out, and he cursed under his breath as he heard people walking past his door laughing. 
    After almost an hour, the man's doctor came into the room. "What's going on here?" asked the doctor.  
    Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?" 
    "Yes," said the doctor. "But never with a carnation.

When asked why, he replied that he was just too afraid of all the crime even though he would be passing up a big salary increase and greater benefits.

His co-worker said he should reconsider. Chicago was a magnificent city, with world class museums, loaded with a great history, sites, good public transportation, etc. Then he said: "Why I myself worked in Chicago for almost 10 years, and in all that time I never ever had a problem with crime while I was working."

The first asked "What did you do there?"

    Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California raisins, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flour.
    As a longtime friend, Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers.
    He was not considered a very "smart" cookie, wasting his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky, at times, he even still, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions. Toward the end it was thought he would rise again, but alas, he was no tart.
    Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; two children, John and Jane Dough; plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

  22. QUESTION:
    First time visiting a urologist?
    I'm reposting this because I didn't get much response the first time

    Hey all.

    This Monday I'll be seeing a urologist for the first time (the only one in town). I have been suffering with chronic epdidymitis for the past eight months. It started when I got a yeast infection on my penis (yes, apparently men can get yeast infections). I treated the yeast infection but about a week later my right testicle really started to hurt.

    Over the months the pain has gradually lessened, but still is quite a burden on my life. Also, about four months ago my left testicle also began to hurt. I returned to the doctor and asked if maybe there was still some kind of infection, bacterial, fungal, yeast etc. He told me it was unlikely but not impossible. He prescribed me Meloxicam which is supposed to help with inflammation but really doesn't do anything for me. I've switched from the Meloxicam back to ibuprofen because it's more effective but I worry about the damage I could be doing by taking so much ibuprofen for so long. I take about 1,600 mg a day which is technically an overdose but it's just about the only way I can get through my day without every moment being dominated by testicle pain.

    My doctor has not offered me any kind of pain medication and seems to be treating the epididymitis like tennis elbow or something similar. Kind of like, "it won't kill you, sorry it sucks, just deal with it". It's really frustrating because, as I explained to my doctor, this isn't my elbow, it's my testicles. I mean what guy would be okay with permanent pain in his testicles?! How many movies have scenes where a guy is hit in the balls and then rolls on the ground for minutes on end? There's a reason talking about testicle pain makes every guy in the room wince.

    Anyway, my doctor set up an appointment with a urologist that I'm now three weeks into a month of waiting for. I'm really nervous about my appointment. The way my doctor talked about it, he doesn't think the urologist is going to have anything to contribute, and is probably just going to tell me to keep taking ibuprofen. I have told my doctor many times that ibuprofen isn't effective enough to even halfway remove my pain but again, he seems to be taking my condition very lightly. I realize it's not cancer or tuberculosis but come on, after eight months I think I deserve a moment of relief.

    A friend of mine is a physician's assistant and he told me there are nerve blocking injections and stuff that they can do. A lot of fancy medical talk that I don't really understand. All I want to know is whether I'm going to be wasting my time seeing a urologist and, if I am, what else can I do?

    Also, IF it came down to it, if I had both testicles removed that would cure the pain, right? I mean I'm only 23 and I definitely don't want to go through life as a eunuch but compared to permanent pain I'll take it. I realize I'll have to take hormone shots for the rest of my life and I'll never have kids but I'm serious when I say that the amount of pain I'm in justifies drastic measures.

    TL;DR: I'm nervous about going to the urologist for the first time. My doctor seems to think he won't be much help but I wanted a referral anyway. I have heard horror stories and great stories both so I don't know what to think. What kinds of things can I expect and will a urologist be more willing to take more drastic measures than "just keep taking ibuprofen and deal with it", which has not worked for my epdidymitis for the past eight months.
    I switched from boxers to briefs and that helps the epididymitis but it doesn't really cure it.

    No hernia, I've been checked five separate times, also given an ultrasound, no torsion either. The pain is definitely in my right epididymis gland. I can reach down there and feel it and it's very sensitive to touch, causing a high degree of pain for several minutes after I touch it.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you and your P.A. friend and doctor may have overlooked the obvious!
      You may very well have a Hernia!
      Before you freak out any further and talk of having your testicles removed, get yourself checked for a Hernia.


Cure Yeast Infections Naturally

Written By: admin - Dec• 28•11

Many women turn to a natural cure yeast infection treatment to manage the overgrowth of Candida in their body. If you suffer from chronic yeast infections, you've probably tried every medical remedy available. You take suppositories and creams, hoping that this time you will get rid of the infection for good.

Foods like rice cakes, nuts and seeds, lentils, sprouts, unprocessed meat, soy milk, brown flour products, beans, onions and eggs should form a part of your candida yeast infection diet. As I said earlier, also include yogurt and garlic in your diet. Apart from this eating cranberries can be extremely beneficial. Cranberry helps to lower the pH level of urine. So when urine passes out of the body, it tends to increase the acidity of genital area, thus washing the infected areas clean of yeast.

Apple cider vinegar has a natural anti-fungal property. Fill up your bathtub with warm water, and pour one cup of unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar into the water. Soak in this for at least 20 minutes. Repeat at least once a day until your yeast infection has cleared.

Garlic - It's said that garlic will offer you instant relief. One way to use it is to insert one garlic clove or tab into your vagina every few hours until you feel relief. Make sure the garlic tabs are pure and natural. You can also take a garlic tab internally, or drink a glass of water with a pressed whole garlic clove.

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.

Garlic is another great anti-fungal treatment option that is all natural. In my personal experience I have found that simply by eating larger than average portions of garlic it has significantly cut down on the amount of my yeast infections. Otherwise I like to grind up a few cloves and spread the paste on the vaginal opening and around the vulva area.

Honey also has natural anti-fungal properties. Although this is messy, raw organic honey can be used to treat yeast infections topically. Apply with your hand, or coat a clean tampon with the honey and insert. Leave in place for two hours. Repeat twice daily until your yeast infection has cleared up.

    • ANSWER:
      Dear Grace, About 2 years ago, I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I have purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before. The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible.

      After doing some research online, I found out about a program called 'natural cure for yeast infection' . Turned out to be a very effective way to cure yeast with only Natural means. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later and I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge.

  3. QUESTION:
    How to cure yeast infections ?
    how to cure yeast infections naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      There are effective natural cures for yeast infections available that can help to soothe the discomfort and frustration of a yeast infection and other symtoms of thrush, resolving the infection without the use of prescriptions and OTC drugs. They contain ingredients such as Cymbopogon citratus (Lemon grass), Calendula officinalis, and Tabebuia impetiginosa (Pau d'arco bark). All have antibacterial and antifungal properties that effectively remove toxins and help to support the overall natural maintenance systems in the body.

      Natural treatment for vaginal thrush has proven to be effective as well for relieving the pain and discomfort of candidiasis and for controlling candida overgrowth. There are many herbs with anti-fungal properties which may be used topically or internally to deal with the problem.

      Apart from treating the fungal overgrowth itself, herbal remedies can also help to improve immune system strength, thereby helping to protect the body against future attacks. Herbal and homeopathic treatments are not only safe and effective to use, but also non-addictive without any side effects.

  4. QUESTION:
    How do you cure a yeast infection naturally?
    Are there any ways of curing a yeast infection naturally at home? What are some easy and fast ways of curing it?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all cranberry juice is better for bladder infections.

      Find a yogurt that has pro-biotics in it and eat 2 a day for a week or there are several medicines you can buy at a place like Fred Meyer's that are natural probiotics that will help level out the yeast in your body. One is called AZO Yeast and there are several other brands that do the same thing.

      Also, do your best to stay cool, dry and clean down there. I used to actually lay in front of a fan with just some light cotton pajama pants on (so I could feel the air down there) and would read for like a half hour 2-3 times a day. It really will help if you can keep it dry and cool (yeast only grows in damp and warm areas).

    I've been taking a acidophiles (misspelled) It contains a billion active cultures...It's cleared up, I just want to know how to keep it that way...for those of you who have had them, I UNDERSTAND it's f* hell!!!
    Excuse me but it's totally true.

    O... and have you realized that the dumbest questions get the most answers? I really don't understand it...but o well.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Christina,

      You need a three pronged treatment

      One for your candida, another for your itch if its there and the third to make your immune system stronger so that recurring attacks can be stopped.

      Safest way to do so is by taking herbal supplements like Pau d'arco bark, lemon grass, Schizandra, Buchu, Astralagus membranaceus etc.

      Garlic, in general is an excellent remedy for quite a few things, but it alone just cannot do the job for you.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to cure a yeast infection naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      First and foremost, I have to say that it depends on just how bad it is and if it is specifically a yeast infection... if it's a bad enough infection or if you've had it long enough, you may need to see a doctor and/or use an antifungal to treat it this time.

      With that being said, Probiotics are the biggest thing to help prevent the yeast from growing and even to fight against it. Yogurt and Kefir have Probiotics in them, but no where near enough to make a fast impact on yeast that a good Probiotic supplement (one with 30+ billion viable organisms from several strains) can. In fact, I've seen reports that most women that eat yogurt on a daily basis seldom have issues with yeast infections.
      In addition to Probiotics, Caprylic Acid and Grapefruit Seed Extract also help to fight the yeast directly, so those three together are a very good combination to fight it.

      Some people like to go to the extreme to fight yeast without antifungals and they may choose to avoid foods that could potentially help the yeast to grow. If you want to do that, you should avoid sugary foods (since sugar feeds yeast) and if you want to cover all your bases, even natural sugars would be best to avoid (eg. fruits, fructose, ribose, etc) because yeast can feed on most any sugars. Also, minimize the refined carbs you eat for the same reason... carbs convert into sugar in your system, which feeds yeast. It seems too obvious to say avoid products with yeast (breads and whatnot), but still.
      Those options will help a LOT to starve them while you attack with the supplements. Eating lots of fiber (veggies, especially) will help with elimination, which can help remove some of the yeast as well. There are a lot of angles that fighting yeast comes from, not just one or two.
      Most of the cases I've heard of that used regimens like this showed an impact within just a few days (where they noticed some benefits) and were often almost completely gone within a rather short time, but some more extreme cases took longer. Good luck and I hope I helped!

      [edit]: Wow, it's amazing how powerful the skeptics get when they gang up and attack the natural option. I'm sorry so many skeptics have hit your question with their negative answers and deluged the ones giving you natural answers as you asked with thumbs-downs. :-(
      Try to look past their skepticism of natural options and hopefully you'll find the answer you're looking for. ;-)

  8. QUESTION:
    How can i cure my yeast infection naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      Plain Yogurt if placing directly on the area, I had a friend that was an OBGYN, he said it works, also eating it, I had to take massive dosage of antibiotics and so I did both eat it (twice a day 1 for breakfast and desert for lunch)and placed the plain yogurt in my bath water because you can get a yeast infection under your arms as well as under the breast (for women). My doctor said we would have to keep constant eye out for yeast infection but was amazed it never became an issue due to my friends advice I would also suggest swabbing the area down with hydrogen peroxide let it dry and then apply the yogurt.

  9. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried home remedies to cure yeast infections?
    I found this site http://www.grannymed.com/meds/yeast-infection.aspx to naturally cure yeast infections.

    *Put yogurt on a tampon and change every 2 hrs to cure yeast infections. Has anyone ever tried this and if so, did it work?

    How much yogurt do you put?
    EDIT:

    I saw all those sites that cost for natural cures fast. Ally May - Can you tell me how so I don't have to pay for it. :)
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I've never tried yogurt internally. However, if you eat yogurt with live and active cultures the cultures may eventually help regulate the yeast. It won't cure an actual infection though. Sounds crazy but while living in another country where yeast infections medication was not sold over the counter, I used a cotton ball soaked with white vinegar to clean the inner labia. This helped to relieve the itching associated with the yeast. Be warned, it will sting a bit.

    i have had this for about a week

    i cannot get any treatment except for an external use cream from monistat that comes with the ovule.
    i cannot use the ovule. i have this because it is my moms and i took the cream.

    i do not know how or why i got it...
    will the yeast infection cure on its own?

    • ANSWER:
      This is a very common problem, don't worry too much! You can get yeast infections from wearing underwear or tights that are too tight or from using perfumed soaps.

      If the itching is internal, you will need to get suppositories or oral tablets from your local chemist. 'Canesten' produce external creams, suppositories and oral tablets to kill the yeast infection, available in most pharmacies and chemists. Eat live Bio yoghurts, the good bacteria in these will fight the infection and restore natural PH balance. Avoid washing with perfumed soaps and try wearing cotton underwear.

      You should be back to normal in a few days once using treatments.

      I hope it clears up for you soon, I know how uncomfortable it can be! : /

  11. QUESTION:
    What are good ways to cure internal yeast infections in infants?
    My 18 month old daughter had a yeast infection in her diaper area about two months ago. I used so OTC drugs on it, and have not had any more problems with it, or so I thought.... Resently it has been brought to my attention that it is possible that she has an internal infection. She has been having whiteish stools (Kinda looks like she has been nursing, but no she has not) She has severe problems with diarea, and a continuosly runny nose. So, if anyone has any ideas on curing it naturally, they would be appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest yogurt if your daughter can have milk. If not, then the lactobacillus tablets opened into pudding or something to give it some better taste and a way for her to swallow the lactobacillus.
      Either way, talk to a doctor and make sure you are on the right track. The medicine like nystatin is brutal on kids and is not usually prescribed lightly!

  12. QUESTION:
    How do u cure yeast infection in dogs ears naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      If you clean the ears with rubbing alcohol 3x a day it will kill the active yeast. Yeast is recurrent, so you have to clean them once a week or so to prevent regrowth. Some people use an alcohol/vinegar combo. I think the alcohol works better. Just lie the dog on her side, pour a capful into her ear canal, make her lie a moment then let it run out onto a tissue. Do the other side the same way. It will clear up yeast within a week or less.

      It doesn't help mites. but any monthly flea spot on or monthly heartguard prevents mites.

  13. QUESTION:

    i later read that backing powder breeds yeast! i tried to throw it up and cant... wtf? i dont know what to do now except eat a whole tub if yogurt:( will the powder drink really make it worse and what should i do now? all the other things were helping, maybe i am just freaking out.

    • ANSWER:
      Baking soda is actually another way of making baked products rise, as does yeast in breads. Don't worry about it, it's not going to hurt you.

      Men do not know anything about how this is transmitted. So, Probiotics for your digestive system. Yoghurt or other edible bacterial cultures are the slower way. You can buy them in a health food store - make sure you get the refrigerated kind with guaranteed quantities of live bacteria (acidopholous and lactobacillus) in the millions.

      To address any vaginal reactions, you can use yoghurt as a douche (but that's messy), Thuja cream from a health food store relieves the problem, and you should buy some anti-fungal wash for your underwear (Canestan is the brand in Australia) which will be in the detergent section of the supermarket. If you want a lower cost option that the wash for your underwear, you can also iron it.

      If you are sexually active, treat your partner with the probiotics as well. Men don't often have any symptoms but can keep passing the infection back to you.

      On the diet side, it will help if you reduce the amount of sugar from all sources in your diet. Natural fruit sugar is the best for you, but keep it down to 3 pieces a day. This will help the probiotics return bacterial balance to your digestive tract.

  14. QUESTION:
    Can all yeast infections be cured naturally, or do some of them need medicine from a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      I use chamomile tea to wash the itchies (sometimes I even toss a few tea bags in the tub and soak for a bit) and I use some acidophillis pills I got at the healthfood store as a vaginal suppository once a day until it is all cleared up.
      Plain yogurt works, as well as garlic. Hemorrhoid wipes(the kind with witch hazel and aloe) are also very soothing.

      Try and avoid body washes with strong perfumes, I used to get really bad itches, turns out my body wash was irritating my skin down there and making it susceptible to infections. I got rid of the body wash and I haven't had an infection since.

  18. QUESTION:
    Can male yeast infection be cured naturally?
    i have "yeast infection" and i am a male. I'm pretty sure its because of the antibiotics i've been taking for 12 days. i want to know if it can be cured without having to go to a doctor and having my **** scraped :(

    • ANSWER:
      A yeast is a form of fungus and like all other fungii it thrives in a warm, moist dark environment. There is just such an environment under the average foreskin. Antibiotics can also help the yeast to thrive as they kill off some of the beneficial bacteria that also live under the foreskin and thus reduce 'competition'.

      After you have ceased taking antibiotics for a week or so there will be none left in your body and the normal useful bacteria can develop again. However, you will need to remove the conditions in which the yeast grows well. This means keeping your foreskin retracted to allow the glans and inner layer to dry out as well as cooling off and letting more light in. Unfortunately most men find it hard to keep their foreskin trained back.

      You will probably need to get an anti-fungal cream from the pharmacist in order to fully kill off the yeast.

      If you repeatedly suffer from yeast infections (which one can do whether taking antibiotics or not) then it is desirable to consider circumcision which will permanently remove the conditions in which bacterial and fungal infections thrive.

  19. QUESTION:
    How can you cure a yeast infection without using medication?
    I think I have some of the signs -- my discharge is coming out clumpy. How would i naturally cure it? What type of water should I bathe in (warm, cold, hot, lukewarm) and how many times a day should I wash down there?

    • ANSWER:
      If you are not experiencing itching, you do not have a yeast infection, but if you are having the itching also use an over the counter cream. You can also try putting a tablespoon of regular plain yogurt in your vagina at night. Bath regular, and don't wash yourself to much, as this will cause a bacterial infection.

      Good luck

  20. QUESTION:
    can taking lactobacillus supplements or eating lots of yoghurt cure vaginal yeasts naturally?
    or if anyone knows any natural cures for yeast infection plz let me know!thanks:)

    • ANSWER:
      Yes and no. Depending on severity it may help, but if a bad yeast infection it would take too long and misses other options. 1st and best thing to do is cut out sugars and white refined flours. If a very mild yeast flare, then cutting out sugar and upping probiotics should make a bit difference, but may not really knock it out completely. Then it will come back at a later time.

      Probiotics are helpful to keep yeast at bay, but grapefruit seed extract is best as combating the infections. Use liquid for a topical infection (skin, throat or vaginal) and dilute then rinse area. If internal, not topical, then use the grapefruit seed extract pills and take one every few hours for a few days. Then, start pumping up the probiotics. A refrigerated pill probiotic or kefir will get you back up to speed with natural good bacteria more quickly than yogurt.

      Grapefruit seed extract is wonderful for yeast infections, but always dilute before using. You can gargle with it, swallow it, douche with it, whatever you need. You can also add a few drops to your dishwater to sanitize dishes.

      Try drinking kefir, it's been used for hundreds of years and the probiotics in it really keep the yeast infections in check for women. I really enjoy Lifeway Kefir because it's very tasty (You can get plain, strawberry, or other flavor) and it has 10 live cultures.

    • ANSWER:
      You should make sure it's a yeast infection first.

      Easy At-Home Methods to Rebalance the Vaginal Ph

      Insert unpasteurized, plain yogurt with a small spoon or spatula or vaginal cream applicator. Insert at night and wear a pad. Repeat for three to seven nights, until symptoms disappear. Douching with yogurt and water can help, too. It also helps to eat a lot of yogurt.

      "Paint" the vagina, cervix (you'll need a speculum) and vulva (outside area including the labia or "lips" of vagina) with gentian violet. It stains so you'll want to wear a pad. This usually works after one treatment.
      Insert a garlic suppository. Carefully peel one clove of garlic. Wrap in gauze and insert into the vagina. Leave in for up to twelve hours. Repeat as necessary. It also helps to eat a lot of garlic.

      Drink cranberry juice. Unsweetened is best.

      Insert Potassium Sorbate. This is used in home beer-making and can be found at wine-making stores. Dip a cotton tampon into a 3% solution (15 grams of Potassium Sorbate in one pint of water) and insert into the vagina at night. Remove in the morning.

      Drink or eat Acidophilus. It's available in powder or capsules in health food stores or found in some milk and yogurt products. (Read the label; some dairy products have added acidophilus.)

      Douche with a vinegar/water solution. One tablespoon of vinegar to one quart of water, once a day. Especially effective when used with yogurt suppositories.

      Good Luck!

    Baking soda drink for yeast infection? Does it work?
    http://health.top54u.com/post/Baking-Soda-Yeast-Infections.aspx

    Read #1

    Or this one

    http://www.curingyeastinfection.com/Recurring-Yeast-Infection-Cure-it-Naturally.html

    Do you think it works? Should I try it? Will baking soda make it worse?

    I've read from like 4 sites so far that say it's a home remedy, and one site not to use baking soda?!

    • ANSWER:
      Baking soda tastes a little salty. I use it all the time when I have acid indigestion or a sour stomach. It works better than any antacid I have tried.

      It doesn't really have much of an odor just tastes salty and chalky.

      I don't think drinking a little baking soda would do much to acidity of your vagina, but yeast infections are generally fungus gone amock because of lack of bacteria. Get rid of your anti-bacterial soap (at least for your vagina) and maybe try a cup or so of baking soda in your bathwater (it desolve pretty quickly). This may help with excess acidity in your vagina.

      Give it a shot. I don't think it'll hurt you.

  27. 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

    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.

  31. QUESTION:
    Curing ear infection naturally?
    i've had an ear infection for about 2 weeks and the medicine is obviously not working because i still have the ear infection and it gave me a yeast infection on my tongue. i can't sleep or eat because of this and i just want it to go away without any more chemicals in my body, any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      •Take a washcloth full of hot water and wring it out. Hold the hot washcloth onto the infected ear until it cools. The moist heat increases the circulation and reduces the swelling and the pain. This will not reduce the infection but will likely provide comfort.

      •2
      Take 1 tbsp. of pure almond carrier oil, add 2 drops of lavender essential oil, 2 drops of chamomile essential oil and 3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Mix the oils and heat them up. Put 2 drops of this warm oil mixture inside the infected ear twice a day for comfort.

      •3
      Chewing gum--or food for that matter--will open and close the mouth causing the eustatian tube (where an ear infection typically resides) to ventilate and may allow for drainage. This may help to relieve some pressure from the infection and provide comfort

      Tips & Warnings
      Another way to use the warm oil treatment to relieve the pain from an ear infection is to rub the oil mixture onto the inside and outside of the ear itself and the affected side of the neck..An even faster way to get rid of pain from an ear infection is to get the oil mixture hot, dip it in a cloth and use the cloth as a compress on the infected ear. Don't make it too hot or you will burn your ear..If you have a punctured eardrum, do not put any oil or drops in the ear canal..For those who seem to get a lot of ear infections, you might be allergic to certain foods such as dairy products, egg whites, wheat, peanuts or soy..Those who get a lot of ear infections might also have too high of an intake of fatty foods..Antibiotics prescribed by your health care provider are your best bet at eliminating ear infections. Use home and natural remedies in conjunction with medical treatment from your physician..

      hope it helps

    how to cure a yeast infection? 10 points, desperate 13 year old!!!!?
    okay i am 13 and i was visiting an aunt, my pad flipped over while i was sleeping and for the whole night and the rest of that day i was sitting in period blood even though i had removed the pad and it was very bloody and gross. i later washed my underwear but my vagina started to ITCH and burn and i began to have tons of pain when my shorts would rub even gently on my vagina and it is very painful and especially on my clitoris and i looked at it and my clitoris has discharge in it and i think i got the infection from the period blood or like a hair stuck in my clitoris or something, i have gotten a hair stuck in it before (like a short dog hair) for no reason and i pulled it out with tweezers and uit was fine but it hurts to much this time to pull it apart and see whats up with it. so i would like to THINK its a yeast infection and i would like to know if there is anyway at home to treat it naturally first and if that doesn't work what i could buy to treat it. also what do you think i have if you think it isn't a yeast infection?

  35. QUESTION:
    I'm pretty sure that I might have a yeast infection. What can I do naturally to get rid of it?
    For may be a week now, I had discharge that kind of looks like cottage cheese. It smells like absolutely nothing. I have had discharge for a year and it's always been normal except for now. I haven't gotten my period either. I don't know what could have caused it because I'm not on antibiotics and don't use scented soaps down there or wear scented underwear. I always wash everyday so I really don't know. I'm away right now because I visit my grandparents in Seattle every summer for about 2 or 3 weeks so I can't really go to the doctor or speak to my mom about it in person. Is this a yeast infection and if it is, how do I use yogurt to cure it? Also, it is not an STD because i am only 12 and have never had sex.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      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. If this doesn't work for you, you can also use your fingers, however make sure you are laying down on your back to prevent it from dripping out.

      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. You can also try taking some vitamin B3, many women find their infections resolve quicker when they are taking 300mg/per day.

      7. 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. I know the brand renew life has a good one.

      8. 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.

      When all is said and done I would suggest you research Candida and take a test to determine if you are suffering from it, as anyone who gets yeast infections has Candida, it's just a matter of how bad it is.

  36. QUESTION:
    What are the symptoms of a yeast infection?
    And is there anyway to cure it naturally through dieting and good hygience pratices ?
    Or do you need antiboitics ?

    • ANSWER:
      A yeast infection causes itching or soreness in the vagina and sometimes causes pain or burning when you urinate or have sex. Some women also have a thick, clumpy, white discharge that has no odor and looks a little like cottage cheese.These symptoms are more likely to occur during the week before your menstrual period.

      If you have had a yeast infection before and can recognize the symptoms, and you aren't pregnant, you can treat yourself at home with medicines you can buy without a prescription. You can use an antifungal cream, or a suppository that you put into your vagina, or antifungal tablets that you swallow. If your symptoms are mild, you may want to wait to see if they clear up on their own.

  38. QUESTION:
    Question about using yogurt for a yeast infection?
    I know this is gross, but I have searched like crazy and can't find the answer. I got my first small yeast infection and found a ton of info saying that yogurt (and putting a garlic clove up there is supposed to work, too) could cure a yeast infection, and to actually put yogurt down there and...inside. Well, I got desperate and actually did it. I also did the garlic for 3 nights.

    I keep checking myself to see if the white discharge is gone, but I am still finding some white stuff, which is not lumpy like they say yeast infections are (but it is definitely white, and not something else), no yeasty smell, and is almost like a liquidy texture.

    Is this the yogurt coming out still? It's been about two days since I did that treatment (the frozen yogurt tampon). How do other people get the yogurt out? Does it come out naturally? Get absorbed? If I only find a tiny bit of that and maybe one small (I mean tiny) bit of yeast, am I pretty much home free?

    Also, I bought Actimel (euro version of DanActiv) which is a yogurt drink with lots of live cultures. Will drinking, say, 8 small bottles of this in the course of a day for a few days help curing this along?

    I know this is a lot, but the question about getting the yogurt out is the most important! What is supposed to happen?!

    • ANSWER:
      First things first:
      Yoghurt doesn't always work, nor does garlic. If you're still experiencing the redness/itching/burning associated with yeast infections you probably need to move up to the big guns (namely an over the counter treatment or anti-fungal pill).

      The yoghurt may need a few days to come out naturally. Some will be absorbed and some will leave the body. Wear a pantyliner for a few days. The texture you're describing does sound consistent with yoghurt. Natural vaginal discharge wouldn't be white and watery after a yeast infection. Just leave it to do it's thing. If you douche or try to physically remove the yoghurt you'll just irritate your vagina and possibly do more harm than good.

      Drinking 8 small bottles will do no more good than drinking 1 or 2. All it will do it up your calorie count for the day, and possibly upset your stomach if you're sensitive to dairy. If you want a better fix I'd buy a probiotic supplement from your pharmacy or health foods store. Yoghurt has sugar, and yeast thrives on sugar. You're kind of feeding your infection.

      Also, if you have a little yeast left over that means you're NOT cured. You'll continue to have recurring infections. (Yeast is a natural part of our flora, but an overgrowth is no fun)

      Anything more serious than a mild yeast infection usually requires medical treatment of some sort.

    I think I have yeast infection help!?

  40. QUESTION:
    yeast infection & men, giving it to my boyfriend?
    ok so I've had a yeast infection for a while now. I tried to treat it with monistat 1 then monistat 7. the symptoms went away so I figured the infection was gone. My boyfriend & I had sex about 2 weeks ago but not since then (we usually live about 2 hours apart so we don't see each other very often) My doctor prescribed me diflucan to finally cure my yeast infection. My question is, how long after taking the diflucan should I wait to have sex again? I want to be finally rid of this stupid yeast infection so I don't want to risk giving it to him then reinfecting myself or irritating my vagina anymore with sex. So how long should I wait after taking the diflucan pill before it's safe to have sex? and also, if I had given the yeast infection to my boyfriend 2 weeks ago, would he still have it now or would his body have gotten rid of it naturally by now? I really want to be done with this infection once and for all!

    • ANSWER:
      1. Diflucan (I'm assuming you got the standard single dose here, right?) begins to clear the infection right away, but it can take several days to get rid of it all. I'd give it a week before resuming sex, personally, just to let yourself heal up.

      2. The thing with yeast infections in males is that they can get them (although not as easily as you can) but they often don't have any symptoms. If you had infected your bf two weeks ago, yes, he could still have it. It's not a guarantee that he'd give it to back you or anything, but it's certainly possible if you are prone to yeast overgrowth issues.

    Male yeast infection..!?
    Okay, I had yeast infections for 3 years now. I did go to plan parenthood and they gave me this creams that dont work on me. so i decided to go to a urologist to take a look, they gave me a strong cream crystal clear one that burned my penis so hard, but it helped atleast. But eventually 2 months later it came back and im having trouble getting rid of it again. i dont want to go back to the urologyst it will cost a lot again. is there any good effective way to cure this naturally?? please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Eat more yogurt. Lots! You need more good bacteria in your system.

      Good luck!

      EDIT: To the people below who claim to know a bit about natural meds, I am a healthcare professional-a cardiovascular technologist, and i have seen time and time again that natural medicine works even when prescribed medication doesnt.

      Yogurt is full of live cultures which naturally slow down the growth of yeast. This is why after you take antibiotics-which also kill good bacteria, most docs will advise you eat pro-biotic foods.

      Cranberry juice is great for digestive health. Its help directly for yeast infections is slim, but its so good for your that it can only help your system as a whole.

      Please don't listen to people who have no idea what they are talking about. Especially the one who claims to have a biology degree.

      Good luck and feel better.

  43. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection questions?
    Ok i don't know if I have one but it's been burning and itching lately also I've noticed i've been masturbating more lately could that be a cause? what is an yeast infection? How do I get rid of it? Can it be cured naturally? Please help i'm worried! Oh does that vagisil screening kit work please serious answers only!

    • ANSWER:
      It's an itchy feeling you might hardly notice at first. Maybe,you muse, it's just that your jeans are too tight. Actually,tight jeans may have something to do with it. But if the itch keeps getting itchier, even when your jeans have been off for awhile, then there's something else involved.

      That something else could very well be a fungus whose technical name is Candida, and which causes what is often called a "yeast" infection. Such infections are most common in teenage girls and women aged 16 to 35, although they can occur in girls as young as 10 or 11 and in older women (and less often, in men and boys as well). You do not have to be sexually active to get a yeast infection.

      The Food and Drug Administration now allows medicines that used to be prescription-only to be sold without a prescription to treat vaginal yeast infections that keep coming back. But before you run out and buy one, if you've never been treated for a yeast infection you should see a doctor. Your doctor may advise you to use one of the over-the-counter(OTC) products or may prescribe a drug called Diflucan (fluconazole).The FDA recently approved the drug for clearing up yeast infections with just one dose.

      Though itchiness is a main symptom of yeast infections, if you've never had one before, it's hard to be sure just what's causing your discomfort. After a doctor makes a diagnosis of vaginal yeast infection, if you should have one again, you can more easily recognize the symptoms that make it different from similar problems. If you have any doubts, though, you should contact your doctor.
      Other symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include:

      soreness
      rash on outer lips of the vagina
      burning, especially during urination.
      The OTC products for vaginal yeast infections have one of four active ingredients: butoconazole nitrate (Femstat 3), clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin and others), miconazole (Monistat 7 and others), and tioconazole (Vagistat). These drugs are in the same anti-fungal family and work in similar ways to break down the cell wall of the Candida organism until it dissolves. FDA approved the switch of Femstat 3 from prescription to OTC status December 1996 and a similar switch for Vagistat in February 1997. The others have been available OTC for a few years.
      When you visit the doctor the first time you have a yeast infection, you can ask which product may be best for you and discuss the advantages of the different forms the products come in: vaginal suppositories (inserts) and creams with special applicators. Remember to read the warnings on the product's labeling carefully and follow the directions.

  44. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection 2 weeks after giving birth?
    Is it normal? I'm having some major issues down there right now. My symptoms are
    Itchiness
    redness
    soar
    It's just all around uncomfortable! My symptoms seem to fit with a yeast infection. How does it get treated? I'm breastfeeding so I don't want to take anything dangerous for my baby.
    Is there anyway to cure it naturally? I read that yogurt and garlic can help to heal.
    thanks in advance!
    I did get one stitch, and they said it would itch a little bit. But Im itchy everywhere..sorry a little bit too much info haha. I'm going to the drs. soon. just want some feedback

    • ANSWER:
      Hi - it is entirely possible that during your stitch procedure, someone or something infected you with a low-grade bacteria OR a yeast infection. Typical of hospitals/surgical instruments, I'm afraid.

      The main thing to try and stop doing, is actually itching and scratching at yourself. This compounds the problem, breaking the skin, drying it, and allowing more bacteria into the site.

      Some self-care techniques include a sitz bath in a solution of 1 teaspoon of vinegar for every gallon of water, and eating yogurt containing live acidophilus cultures. Studies have not proven whether or not these are effective.

      A number of simple habits can help minimize the risks of infection:

      Keep the vaginal area clean (but not bone-dry)

      Avoid excessive douching and strong soaps and detergents

      Wear cotton underwear

      Clean from front to back after a bowel movement

      Do not leave tampons or diaphragms in the vagina for long periods

      Avoid deodorized tampons

      Decrease intake of sweets, bread, and alcohol

      Eat yogurt or take acidophilus tablets, especially if you are taking antibiotics.

      You could try simple Aqueous cream. Hydrocortisone cream is generally safe, but if it seems to irritate, discontinue its use and seek advice from your doctor.

      Good luck, and congratulations on the birth of your baby.

  45. QUESTION:
    Please help with yeast infection?
    Hey, well I think i have a yeast infection, im 13 and i do not want to go to a doctor. Its really itchy, sore, burning during urination, vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese and smells rather bad. Please help me cure in naturally. Please don't send links because normally they don't tell you what you have to do to make it go. Please help. Its really annoying. Thank you x
    If i go to a doctor what would they do to check i have a yeast infection??

    • ANSWER:
      There is an over-the-counter medication that is called lotrimen that could help, if it is yeast.

      More important, what is it that caused it? One attack might not be worrisome, but repeated attacks are signs that you need to change something.

      Are you one the pill? Are you diabetic? Are you sexually active (even though you are too young)?

      Seeing a doctor, especially at your age, for "female problems" is hard, but you owe it to yourself to see one at some point for at least a check up. You owe it to yourself as a woman.

      A doctor would do what is called a pelvic exam, including a speculum exam, and probably look at the discharge under a microscope to make sure it is yeast.

      If you want or need more details about what happens during this kind of exam, please email me.

      And do tell your mom. More than likely, she has had a yeast infection at some point, too.

      And, is there a female health care provider available to you? Some people feel more comfortable using one of them rather than a male (although I can guarantee you a male doctor will have done enough exams that it has become a matter-of-fact part of his practise.)

  49. QUESTION:
    What is wrong with me?
    For the past 3 days I've been experiencing mild off and on vaginal itching and I have also noticed that my discharge is light brown and sour smelling. I ended my period 3 days ago too so I'm not sure if it triggered anything or what not. Is this a yeast infection? And if it is, are there ways I can cure it naturally without having to go to the store and buying on the counter stuff? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You could have an in-between bleeding which happens sometimes and is nothing to be worried about. As for the itching - I would definitely recommend you go see a doctor if it continues. It could be an infection and you don't want to treat it with over-counter medication since that could make it worse... Get well soon!

  50. QUESTION:
    chest yeast infection won't go away!! HELP!?
    so about 3 weeks ago, i started developing small red dots, which i thought was pimple on my chest area and my back area. naturally, i applied benzoyl peroxide on it, thinking that it'll be gone the next day. however, a week has passed and still inflamed.

    so i went to a dermatologist. she told me that i have a yeast infection on my chest and that it's normal. so she prescribed me selsun shampoo (which is to be applied on my body 15 minutes before i shower), atorax (antihistamine), and ketosil (antibiotic).

    during the first week, i thought i was more or less cured as some of the dots went away and dried up. so i visited my derm for a follow-up. she said that everything looks fine and that she will no longer give me atorax. however, she gave me sulphur soap and differin gel (for acne). so my problem is dis. since i'm off of atorax, it seems that my chest and back area is getting worse. and the more i pick on it, the worst it gets. it itches too, and there are some red patches. and hoping that selsun shampoo will save me, i started increasing the time to over two hours sometimes (instead of 15 minutes).

    is it possible that my body is ALREADY resistant to these meds and the shampoo? i'm very conscious about my body as i've never had pimples or acne on my chest and back before.

    plzzzzz advise me.... WHAT SHOULD I DO??
    i can't go back to the derm again. because i visited her in thailand (for the midterm break, as my hometown is in thailand. but now i'm back in singapore) so this is also another problem.

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections of the skin usually result from moist warm conditions. Try to expose your chest to fresh air as much as you can each day. Don't overdo it with the selsun, that will aggravate your skin. Pat dry your skin after shower, don't rub dry. If you have a hair dryer, use the cool setting and gently blow dry all of the skin, making sure to concentrate upon getting skin folds completely dry. Then apply a light layer of cornstarch (NOT talcum powder!) to the whole area, to absorb moisture during the day. Do not use perfume or body oil right now, until the infection is gone.


Cure Yeast Infections During Pregnancy

Written By: admin - Dec• 27•11

Yeast is the second most common kind of vaginal infection. One of the many species of fungus called Candida causes it. Candida normally lives in small numbers in the vagina as well as in the mouth and digestive tract of both men and women.

Women are more vulnerable to get vaginal yeast infections if their bodies are under stress from poor diet, lack of sleep, illness, or when they are pregnant or taking antibiotics. Women with immune suppressing diseases such as diabetes and HIV infection are also at increased risk.

Symptoms of yeast:

The symptoms of yeast infection may vary from very mild to severe and include:

a Vaginal itch or soreness

a Thick, white, curd like discharge

a Burning discomfort around the vaginal opening, especially when urine touches the area

a Pain during sexual intercourse

a Unpleasant odour from the genitalia

a Itching and burning of the female genitals (vulva)

a Painful urination

a Vulva redness and swelling

Vaginal discharge is not always present and may be minimal, but when present may be:

a cheese like in nature

a thick, whitish-grey discharge

a watery to thick in consistency

Causes of yeast infection:

Since yeast is normal in a women's vagina, it causes an infection when a change in the balance in a woman's system occurs. For example, pregnancy, which leads to changes in hormone levels.
Antibiotics can kill the normal vaginal bacteria. Then the yeast, which is usually present in or near a women's vagina can multiply.

Thus, yeast overgrowth usually occurs as the result of:

a Fatigue

a High stress

a Hormonal fluctuations during the menstrual cycle

a Increased warmth and moisture in the vaginal area
a Menopause

a Not drying the outer vaginal area thoroughly after bathing

a Birth control pills

a Poor diet

a Poorly ventilated underwear

a Poor personal hygiene

a Pregnancy

a Certain drugs

a Use of 'broad spectrum' antibiotics

a Vaginal intercourse without adequate lubrication

a Sweating

a High diabetes, which raises blood sugar levels making a conducive environment for yeast fungus to grow

Treatment of yeast infection:

Any woman who experiences symptoms of a yeast infection for the first time should visit a doctor. This is important to be sure that the vaginal discharge and discomfort is caused by yeast and not any other sexually transmitted infection.

Vaginal yeast infections are treated with antifungal medicines that are inserted directly into the vagina as tablets, creams, ointments or suppositories.

Treatment of sexual partners is not necessary, since most yeast infections are not transmitted sexually.

How to prevent yeast infection?

Every three out of four women experience at least one yeast infection during her life; many experience recurrent infections.

However, one can reduce the probability of recurrent attacks by practicing some preventive steps -

- Always wear white cotton panties. Nylon and Lycra may trap air and create a breeding ground for yeast.

- Keep the external genital area clean and dry.

- Avoid antibiotics and steroids, because they destroy the competing bacteria and allow yeast to overgrow.

- Avoid irritating and perfumed soaps, vaginal sprays.

- Change tampons and sanitary napkins frequently.

- After swimming, change quickly into dry clothing instead of sitting in wet bathing suit for prolonged periods.

- Take antibiotics only as prescribed by a doctor.

- If diabetic, try to keep tight control over blood sugar levels.

- Avoid using oral contraceptives if you have a yeast infection.

- Avoid use of petroleum-based lubricants for vaginal lubrication during sexual intercourse. Try using water-based lubricants.

- Eating one cup of yogurt a day helps some women prevent the yeast infections that often follow antibiotic treatment. However, eating yogurt will not cure a yeast infection.

- Do not wear underwear at night, as our body needs to dry after a day of clothing which traps heat and moisture.

Dietary recommendations for yeast infection -

Any woman with a yeast infection should be particularly careful about her diet, as some foods promote fungal growth. Try to include -

a Fresh vegetables and fruits

a Fish

a Whole grains

a Essential fatty acids, such as nuts

a Plenty of fresh water

a 1 tablespoon Isabgol husk fibre and/or 1/4 cup Oat bran daily
Avoid:

a Alcohol

a Animal fats

a Caffeine

a Dairy products, such as cheese, ice-cream

a Fast foods

a Pickle, vinegar or any yeast product

a Fermented food

a Hydrogenated oils and margarine

a Processed foods

a Sugar, sweets, chocolates

a White and processed flour products

Thus, as yeast fungus thrives on sugars and carbohydrates - a vegetarian nondairy diet of protein, unrefined grains, and vegetables is best. Onions and garlic are also very helpful. Fresh, raw garlic is the best. Avoid meat-based proteins.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infection during pregnancy?
    What can I take specific answers please!
    FYI I did not give thumbs down! I dont know who did! I'll give everyone thumbs up! Thanks everyone for the great answers! Hopefully I can get some relief SOON!

    • ANSWER:
      Candida albicans is the microscopic fungus which is responsible for thrush. While this organism ordinarily lives in the intestinal tract of men and women, nearly one out of three women have candida albicans present in their vagina. This can become a problem when its numbers outgrow the good bacteria – it’s a battle of the good bacteria with the bad bacteria and the side with the most ‘soldiers’ wins.

      During pregnancy, the vagina becomes rich in a form of glucose named ‘glycogen’, which feeds the growth of Candida albicans. It’s believed the higher levels of glycogen occurs due to increased oestrogen levels and reduced acidity in the vagina. This is why a pregnant woman is ten times more likely to get thrush than normal – instead of being a nice cosy home for thrush, the vagina is now a five star hotel!

      Other things which can kill good pro-biotic bacteria include:

      * Anti-biotics
      * Birth Control Pills
      * Steroidal/hormonal drugs
      * Fluoride
      * Chlorine
      * Coffee/Tea/Carbonated Drinks
      * Synthetic vitamins
      * Radiation
      * Stress
      * Additives
      * Pesticides
      * Fertilisers

      The best way to prevent thrust is to take a regular pro-biotic. There are many pro-biotic preparations on the market, usually in powder form found at your health food store or at the chemist. They store the pro-biotic ‘acidophilus’ in the fridge being a live bacteria – you will likely need to ask for it as it won’t be on the shelf. However the one of the best pro-biotic product to take is Fast-Tract – it contains not only one or two strains of pro-biotics but thirteen different ones – a much better product by far! Fast-Tract is not fast-tracked in faecal matter like some other commercially made pro-biotic products. The bacteria are produced from fruit and vegetables and they have been able to acheive a massive 265 million CFU’s (colony forming units) per ml of liquid – and it doesn’t taste that bad at all!

      Of course, if you think you have thrush, be sure to let your carer know. You may be prescribed a medication in the form of pessaries or creams which are safe to use during pregnancy – oral forms of medications are generally not recommended in pregnancy. Don’t buy any other medications unless you have spoken to your carer first as some are not safe to use.

      Many care-givers won’t worry about a diagnois of thrush and are often dismissive, even with heavy growth of candida because it’s considered harmless – but it’s very uncomfortable if you are the person who has it. So you will need to be quite insistent if you want treatment prescribed.

      Just because one type/brand of treatment doesn’t work e.g. Canasten, it doesn’t mean another like Nilstat won’t work. Try them all because they have slightly different constituents.

      If you are in your first trimester, your carer will be least likely to want to prescribe you something for thrush. Here are some suggestions below if you cannot take any medication:

      * Get onto a probiotic as soon as you can – this will help the actual problem of a bacterial inbalance and will get to work right away. The good bacteria will begin to grow and out-number the bad bacteria.

      * Natural live yogurt contains a pro-biotic called acidophilus. However, the level of pro-biotics in yoghurt is quite low, so it can take a little more time to help, which can be frustrating especially if itching is a problem. You can eat the yoghurt as much as you like, some women swear by inserting some plain natural yoghurt into their vagina. You can soak a tampon in natural yoghurt, (differentiate just unsweetened from true natural yoghurt) and insert into the vagina for 2 hours, then change for new one.

      * Avoid underwear that is tight or contains materials like lycra and other fabric which reduces air circulation – cotton is best. Avoid underwear wherever possible – not a good idea though if you are going to work and wearking a skirt! Around the home and overnight is a good start.

      * Avoid tight jeans or trousers where possible – opt for skirts if you can.

      * Candida albicans thrive in moist, warm environments so try to avoid long, hot baths.

      * Good old Gentian Violet in an aqua or water Base is still extremely effective for vag thrush (just messy & ‘out there’ being bright purple) especially good for nipples & babies mouths as it is very liquid and soaks into all the crevices in the tissues which a gel like Daktarin cannot.

      * Douching isn’t recommended in pregnancy even though it’s effective whilst non-pregnant

      * Try avoiding yeast – lot of women swear that yeast in their diet increases the growth of candida. It’s often present in iron tonic supplements so check list of ingredients when taking these.

      * High levels of sugar in diets seems to be a very common culprit, look to amending the diet primarily.

  7. QUESTION:
    Yeast infections during pregnancy; what if they are left untreated?
    I'm positive I have had a yeast infection for a few weeks, but I have not treated it yet (yes I know it is a yeast infection I have had them before and my fiancee and I have been together for 4 years, I am also checked regularly for STD's and other infections I am 26 weeks along) But I am worried about what happens if it is left untreated. I don't see my doctor until the 11th, and the symptoms go away and come back. It's almost like it's curing itself and coming back. Is this possible? What harm can it do to my pregnancy? What happens if it is left untreated?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections are more common during pregnancy than any other time in a woman's life, especially during the second trimester of pregnancy.Your body is going through so many changes right now, and it is difficult for your body to keep up with the chemical changes in the vaginal environment. There is more sugar in the vaginal secretions on which the yeast can feed, causing an imbalance, which results in too much fungus.

      Yeast infections can cause severe discomfort but rarely cause serious health problems. Left untreated, vaginal yeast infections often clear up on their own.

      However you should see your Dr. and have them do a swab. It could be that you have a bacterial infection, which are actually more common. Bacterial vaginosis and pregnancy are not a healthy combination. If you are pregnant, bacterial vaginosis has been linked with preterm birth. Bacterial vaginosis must be treated with an antibiotic. Only your Dr can tell the difference.

  9. QUESTION:
    What can I do about this?
    Okay, so I am 37 weeks pregnant and think that I might be suffering from a yeast infection. I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday and will be asking him to check then, but I have done a lot of research on the internet about yeast infections during pregnancy and have read that most doctors just prescribe the over-the-counter, pricey creams at the store. I have also read that those creams don't usually completely cure the yeast infection. So my question is, if I indeed have a yeast infection, what are somethings I can use from home (like a home remedy) to cure this without using messy creams and spending a lot of money out of my pocket on something that may or may not work? I know I need to ask my doctor first before treating myself, but I'd just like to know a little more on the subject. Thanks.
    For people who didn't bother to READ, I AM PREGNANT, so therefore "inserting a tampon" with ANYTHING on it is a danger to me and my baby. Please don't suggest that anymore, I appriciate the help but its common sense that I should be using a tampon.
    *should not be using
    I am having a boy

    • ANSWER:
      Most prescription creams are the same as you would be purchasing over the counter.. Fluconazole is one of the exceptions.. Fluconazole, (the pill you take one time to cure your yeast infection ) is fairly cheap if you have prescription coverage.. If the o.b. says it is ok to take it during your pregnancy, and your prescription insurance covers it, then its the easiest way to get rid of the infection. You still might want to use an over the counter anti itch cream as well. . Other than you have natural alternatives such as Acidophilus, or eating yogurt with Acidophilus.. But you should still consult your doctor, first..

  11. QUESTION:
    Late period followed by very painful cramps during period?
    First off, I'm married.

    I got a yeast infection after taking ammoxicilin. My period was supposed to start the fifth day after taking the medicine, it didn't. I had a yeast infection during this time. I cured the yeast infection about 4 days after period was supposed to start. I was 6 days late, I then got my period. It was very painful (mine usually are, but it was a bit more intense at times, not unbearable though) and the bleeding was different. It has some clots, but is much brighter red than usual. It also seemed to be, I don't know, flaky in the water. It is liquid, but is separating somewhat. Also, the bleeding isn't as heavy as normal, although still a constant flow.

    What is going on? I don't think I am pregnant, but it is possible. Pregnancy test (at home) was negative 4 days ago. What exactly do you think is the cause? I"m a major worry wart.

    • ANSWER:
      i think u need to go 2 a gynecologist 2 get it checked out...no one on here is an expert and won't give u a good answer!!! a doctor will have all ur medical history and give u they correct answer for ur problem!!!

  12. QUESTION:
    Cephalexin during pregnancy?
    i know its safe im not worried about that, myquestion is

    i take if every 6 hours so 4 times a day for a week its 500mg

    i went to dr 2 weeks ago and had a bacteria infection, took flagl and it cleared up

    2 days ago i went back w/ burning and pain inside of me, there was no UTI , they sent another one out also , and she did a pelvic exam and there was no yeast infection or bacteria infection, but some yellow discharge and burning and itchyness, so she prescribed me this, what will it cure if something was missed? i read online girls got it prescribed for a UTI / bladder infection/ ear infection/ yeast infection ect... is it just a bacteria killer and anything bad in my system?

    i still have lots of pain and im on my 2nd day on it, is that normal? i still feel like when im not peeing im going to pee myself w/ pain, but dr said everything looks fine and im not sure what else to do.... could it just be the baby on my bladder or something? thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Many antibiotics, including Keflex (cephalexin) will kill many different kinds of bacterial infections. So this should take care of whatever the problem is.

      And yes, your pain is probably still normal and it might take another day of being on the antibiotic before you start feeling better. Call your doctor if you're worried. Take tylenol for your discomfort in the meantime.

  13. QUESTION:
    could this hurt the possible baby?
    (also posted in trying to conceive)

    I did not really know how to tittle this...
    but anyways about over a month ago (defiantly not pregnant) I had to take antibiotics for an ear infection, had sex on my fertile days, then got a mild yeast infection, I tried to cure it at home just in case I was pregnant, but it got worse then I did 1 treatment, it got even worse and I also got BV so I am on 2 type of medication 1 for yeast (Dilfcan sp? and Metronidazole gel) and the only information I could find was "talk to your doctor about the pros and cons to your unborn child"

    my menstrual cycle will be starting in 2 days and I do not feel it coming on at all...
    but if I were to be pregnant since it's soooo early would the medication cause any harm?

    I talked to my doctor about taking probiotics before and during pregnancy and she thought it was a great idea to keep yeast infections away.

    • ANSWER:
      metronidazole (flagyl) is a category B (it will not hurt the baby), fluconazole (diflucan) is a category C. According the the FDA, it is not known whether fluconazole is harmful to an unborn baby. It is not legal to do studies on pregnant women, therefore all studies are done on animals. Some data, however, have been conducted from actual trials and errors and observational studies. Drugs are rated as category A, B, C, D, and X. Category A and B show no adverse effects in humans, but category C has never been tested on humans. In animal studies category C showed no adverse reactions.
      FYI: Category D have demonstrated a risk to the fetus. However, the benefits of therapy may outweigh the potential risk. Category X is very harmful (well-controlled or observational studies in animals or pregnant women have demonstrated positive evidence of fetal abnormalities or risks. The use of the product is contraindicated in women who are or may become pregnant).

      Some antibiotics are safe in pregnancies, some are not. If you were on antibiotics a month ago, they are completely out of your system and cannot hurt the baby.

  14. QUESTION:
    Could I Be Pregnant??? Or just stressed out?
    Hey everyone.

    my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time like 2 weeks ago and we used a condom. After each time we checked the condoms by filling them with water he also did not come the first 2 times, he did come the 3rd. We checked that condom too and no holes. We also double checked to make sure the condom hadn't broken during sex and also made sure it was used properly.

    My period was due yesterday and I am always on time, 26 days each time, it did not come however. I had the symptoms of my period, some cramps. This morning I woke up feeling sick and I vomited. I've also been getting headaches. Am I pregnant? Can i get morning sickness this early? should I take a pregnancy test now or should I wait a few days? I've also been worrying a lot about if I'm pregnant, could that cause me to be sick and delay my period. I also had a yeast infection and took some medication to cure it, can that delay my period?

    What are some good and reliable at home pregnancy tests I could take?

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like your period is delayed if you want to take a test to double check your not pregnant i used clear blue and first response both accurate

  15. QUESTION:
    24 weeks prgnant, got diagnosed wth Group B Streptococcus last pregnacy help!!?
    Im freaking out, i did some research, because last pregnancy, wich i ha a bby boy january 29th 2010, my obgyn dctortold me i had this infection, which i will have i for the rest of my life, and cannot be cured, and haVE To be on antibiotics during labor and my son after he was born.... i forgot what the word was and today did some research and fnally remembered, its freakin m out terribly. in labor i had a very bad fever of 103.3 or something likethat, and so did my son, and duringlabor his heartbeat went really low down to 32 and worst of all had big 2 knots in his cord... anyways, i get a loooott of yeast infections, and vaginal infections during prgnancy, i ets so bad, my vagina lips, swell up and burn, And gets very extreml itchy before that so can anyone give me some good info about this group b strep infectio, and what are the risks, i do not want any websites. thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      My daughter was born last year with GBS sepsis, pneumonia and meningitis so I have done a ton of research on this subject. First off, the other answer stating that GBS does not affect the mother is totally wrong.. it does affect the mother as well as the baby and anyone with a compromised immune system. However, this bacteria lives in about 1/3 of pregnant women and many babies are born unaffected and healthy.. but some aren't. The key is to be educated and informed about it. You will absolutely NOT have this bacteria for the rest of your life. It comes and goes, you may never get it again. (Get a new OB that knows what they're talking about!!). It can be cured by antibiotics along with other methods. While you were in labor with your son, your high fevers indicated an infection which was probably treated with antibiotics. The knots in his cord wouldn't be from GBS but his distress and dropping heartrate could have been.

      I also need to tell you that I had what I thought was a yeast infection while I was pregnant- was itchy, had lime green discharge. That is a sign of a heavy colonization of GBS and needs to be treated to avoid some scary circumstances- as I experienced.

      Here is what I recommend: Look over these two websites and the natural ways of treating GBS- the only "unnatural" way is treating with antibiotics- which may make the infection come back because it kills the good bacteria that prevent the bad (GBS) from surviving. I would recommend taking a probiotic daily, eat a very healthy diet low in yeast and sugar, and use a garlic clove as a suppository.

  16. QUESTION:
    Is this my mucus plug?
    Hello,
    I'm about 4-5 months pregnant. Near the end of my 4th month and the beginning of my 5th. I'm due August 11. I think starting today, this clear discharge has been on my underwear. Could this be my mucus plug or just regular discharge? Do women have discharge during pregnancy? It's not a yeast infect since I've already been cured of that 2 months ago. And I tested negative for any infections. I need an answer ASAP! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Very normal to have discharge. If you are really worried then call your OB. But, some women have so much discharge they have wear panty liners so I am sure you are fine.

  17. QUESTION:
    Can you use Grapefruit Seed Extract vaginally during pregnancy to cure a yeast infection?
    Please help me- I am 6 weeks pregnant and experiencing chronic yeast infections. I have tried everything but they keep returning. I have experienced yeast infections before and used grapefruit seed extract and it has worked great. However I do not know if it is safe to do vaginally during pregnancy...
    I am currently taking acidolphis 6 capsuls orally and 3 capsules vaginally per day. 1000IU's of vitamin C daily and Elderberry and also eating no sugar or carbs. Vaginally I am incerting plain yogurt with apple cider vinegar for relief from the discomfort.
    Melita - Diflucan (fluconazole) is KNOWN to cause birth defects. It is actually the only treatment my doctor said is not safe or recommended during any stage of pregnancy. Your a doctor?

    http://women.emedtv.com/diflucan/diflucan-and-pregnancy.html

    • ANSWER:
      Rather than a topical treatment I would recommend taking L. acidophilus and bifidis probiotics on an empty stomach each morning and night . Cut out all processed sugar and minimize sugary fruits (including melons). Eat garlic!
      Sounds like you are doing the right things. I wouldn't recommend vaginal grapefruit seed extract while pregnant. You could do probiotics vaginally though.
      Just as a side note, chronic overgrowth of candida yeast can be a sign of heavy metal toxicity. It is actually somewhat protective. Lok in your mouth and see if you have amalgam fillings visible or under crowns. After giving birth you could address heavy metals if indeed they are present.
      Here is one fo many links on this subject

    • ANSWER:
      You don't know if you are pregnant or not so you shouldn't be that worried. You needed to get rid of the yeast infection. I know it's not good to be on anything while pregnant but I'd think it would be worse to have an infection while being pregnant.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do I cure a yeast infection fast?
    For some reason I just broke out in a yeast infection yesterday. Its the second one I've ever had in my life! I don't really know how to cure them, but I want to cure it fast because my boyfriend is home for two weeks from the Navy. Please let me know :) Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Probiotics supplements or Eat Active yogurt with live probiotics in them... that's the natural way. Otherwise just go to the drugstore and pick up a creme to cure the yeast infection quickly.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infection fast?
    i have one and it's way uncool.... i need some help

    • ANSWER:
      Dip a tampon in plain yoghurt and put it in. Works every time :-)

  3. QUESTION:
    How fast does it take to cure a yeast infection with a 3-day over-the-counter yeast infection medication?
    This is my first yeast infection. I just got off antibiotics, and thus, I have a yeast infection. How fast does it take to heal with over the counters? Also, after four hours of taking the medication, I went pee and most of it came out, now what?

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately, acquiring a yeast infection while taking or just finishing a course of antibiotics is common. Antibiotics kill all bacteria, including the good ones that inhabit the vagina.
      A three day course of anti-fungal (ie monostat 3 ovule kit and cream) will require about a week.

      Finally, can you explain what you mean by "...I went pee and most of it came out..." What do you mean by 'it'. A yeast infection is not a single, solid blob, even if parts of it look pretty 'chunky' (sorry to be gross here)

  4. QUESTION:
    Is Vinegar safe to help cure yeast infections?
    I got a pill from the doctor and it didn't completly make it go away. I don't want to go back. I head Vinegar and Water mixed helps cure it fast. Is that true? If so, what are ways to use it. Bath? Douche? What?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, vinegar and plain water will help. Vinegar has long been know as a treatment - not cure - for yeast infections. It has anti-fungal and disinfectant properties. Use 1 capful to about 8 ounces of warm water and douche. But don't douche more than 2x per week or you will dry the vaginal tissue too much. Buy some acidophilus tablets or probiotics, and take one capsule by mouth morning and one night before bedtime. And there are many over-the-counter anti-yeast creams that you can use - Clotrimazole, Gyne lotrimin, Monistat. It would be better to use those than take a pill by mouth. The anti-fungal medications are quite strong and can be hard on the body. Best bet, use the creams and take the acidophilus for 7 days and then stop the cream. Then keep taking the acidophilus one at night for the next two weeks, and once you are clear you might want to take it once a week as a preventive measure.

Once you are cured, take measures to prevent another infection by always making sure things are clean before they go in your vagina, don't wear tight pants or thongs more than a couple hours at a time, use appropriate soap to clean things down there (Summer's Eve has a good line and they aren't expensive), don't douche more than once a week, less if you can, and change tampons frequently when you use them.

  11. QUESTION:
    How do you cure a yeast infection naturally?
    Are there any ways of curing a yeast infection naturally at home? What are some easy and fast ways of curing it?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all cranberry juice is better for bladder infections.

      Find a yogurt that has pro-biotics in it and eat 2 a day for a week or there are several medicines you can buy at a place like Fred Meyer's that are natural probiotics that will help level out the yeast in your body. One is called AZO Yeast and there are several other brands that do the same thing.

      Also, do your best to stay cool, dry and clean down there. I used to actually lay in front of a fan with just some light cotton pajama pants on (so I could feel the air down there) and would read for like a half hour 2-3 times a day. It really will help if you can keep it dry and cool (yeast only grows in damp and warm areas).

  12. QUESTION:
    What's the fastest way to cure a yeast infection?
    I believe i have a yeast infection. For the last 2 days my vaginal area has been itching like crazy, and i have been trying my hardest not to itch it. And as usual, when i itch it it gets worse. There's a thick white discharge and a slight smell. What is the quickest and easiest way to get rid of this?
    (Please dont say go to a doctor, if i wanted to go to one, i wouldn't be using Yahoo Answers)

  13. QUESTION:
    natural cure for a yeast infection that works fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat a lot of yogurt with the active cultures in it.

      I'm not sure how quickly this will work, but besides that there are no other "at home", "natural" cures. They sell things like Monistat or Vagisil for relatively inexpensively at any drug store and they should get rid of it in a few days, that is probably your better option right now.

  14. QUESTION:
    Any fast, ,great cures for a yeast infection?
    Well, i posted this question and most of the people are saying it's a yeast infection. So are there any cures for a yeast infection? If so can you post the name and price. Do you need a doctor for a cure? I mean like do you need a doctor to find the right cure? Can you just buy 1 at the store without a presciptsion?

    • ANSWER:
      Eat a lot of yogurt, like yoplait they are like a dollar each if not on sale. there are cultures in yougurt that kill the bacteria in yeast.
      drink lots of water
      and go get an over the counter yeast infection pack. Monistat has worked the best for me. it's around 15-20 dollars depending on which one you get.
      it's the quickest easiest way to cure yourself, just make sure you follow the directions on the pack.

      if you do all of the above and it still doesn't help you need to see a doc cause that means it's not a yeast infection
      hope this helps
      good luck

    • ANSWER:
      a great home thing is when it starts up early on sit in a tub of hot water with half a bottle of vinegar in it and sit there but open up ur lips and splash the water around and then rinse of with warm water

  17. QUESTION:
    How do I cure my yeast infection?? The faster the better but must be effective?
    I've had a vaginal yeast infection for almost 8 months now, my doctor took a test and confirmed it. I have tried just about everything to get rid of it and nothing seems to help! My doctor suggested the Canes-Oral Combi Pack so i tried that and it did not help at all. I heard that putting baking soda in your bath could cure it, but still it didn't get rid of it. So I went back to my doctor and she said to take one 150mg pill of Diflucan then wait 3 days and take one more, while using a prescription cream called Clotrimaderm Cream 1% the whole time until the bottle was finished. Still, that didn't do the trick, so again I went back to my doctor and she said "i'll give you something to completely eliminate it" and gave me more Diflucan, I had to take one 150mg pill of that a day for 10 days straight. This didn't even make a defference. Frustrated I went to the medi-centre seeking a different opinion and the doctor there gave me an internal 7 day cream called Terazol and told me to take one 200mg pill of Apo-Ketoconazole a day for 5 days after my "monthly" along with a strict diet where i was only allowed to drink water, eat fruits and eat vegetables. This diet is pretty much impossibly to follow after a while and I still try to follow it but have sort of strayed. I then did endless research online and found that adding Pure Apple Cider Vinegar to your bath and sitting in it for about 20 minutes a day can get rid of it, this still wasn't doing the trick so I tried pouring just straight Pure Apple Cider Vinegar over the area hoping it would help but it just burned and was incredibly painful and within not even a whole day I was experiencing extreme discomfort again. I have heard a product called Threelac is the best but you have to order it online and wait for the delivery. It's starting to seem like nothing will get rid of this problem, what do I do??
    and yes I am taking Alesse Birth Control tho I wasn't when I got the infection. Also I have a boyfriend but I am not sexually active due to the infection.

    • ANSWER:
      It could be some thing more then a yeast infection going on if nothing is helping to treat it. You may want to have your doctor run a full std test to be on the safe side. It might be thrush or a bacterial infection. If it does happen to be an std then your partner should be tested and treated too.
      Birth control doesn't typically cause yeast infections.

    I havnt started my first period yet so tamons are out of the question. I dont even want to use a tampon even if i start my period. I bet ill try em but maybe the 4th time for my period.

    • ANSWER:
      You can get yeast treatment at the rug store. GEnerally in the aisle next to where tampons are. One good brand is monistat. They have 1 day, 3-day, and 7-day treatment. Get the 3 or 7 day, not the 1 day, since the 1-day treatment isn't usually strong enough.

  25. 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.

  26. QUESTION:
    How can i cure my yeast infection with a tampon and yogurt?
    ive been reading articles on how to cure my yeast infection at home and a lot
    of them said that dipping a tampon that contained live cultures and then inserting it in your vagina works really well so i want to try it because it sounds easy and sounds like its not much work but ive never used a tampon before (im 15 years old) so i dont know what to do. i really dont want to have to tell my mom because we are not close at all i really want to ge rid of it im soo tired of having it. i get tons of discharge and its discusting ive been having yeast infection for more than 2 years straight i know this sounds pretty gross but i dont know what to do anymore i just want to get rid of it FAST ... also do you think i should try the tampon thing??

    thanxxz<3

    • ANSWER:
      When it comes to stuff like that don't do home remedies. They don't work. Also the cultures don't cure the infection. It only regulates the PH after the fact and you eat it for it to work. Since you can't get rid of it on your own go to a doctor. Also I doubt you would have had it for 2 years straight. You would have some serious damage to your reproductive organs right now and you would have PID.

  28. QUESTION:
    I have an underarm yeast infection, what is the fastest way to cure it?
    I've had this since October of last year, when I went to the ER, the doctor prescribed me Lotrimin
    (stuff for jock itch). I use the Lotrimin Power Spray because I don't want the cream rubbing off, since it's under my arm.

    It's been one week and it still hasn't gone away yet, although I'm supposed to use it for two weeks. It still itches like crazy sometimes too.

    Is there anything else I can do? Will Monistat work under my arm, if it works for yeast infections elsewhere?

    • ANSWER:
      Basically the reason you have a yeast infection is because there's an imbalance in your body. A healthy person has a balance between the yeast in their body and the good bacteria in their body.

      Too much yeast, you have a yeast infection. Too much bacteria, you have a bacterial infection . So, when you have a yeast infection you essentially have too much yeast in your body relative to the good bacteria. The natural way to treat it and bring back that balance is to starve the yeast and introduce more good bacteria into your body.

      Oh and BTW - That's why you often get relief from using the over the counter meds temporarily, and then the yeast infection comes back. The creams aren't changing the source of the problem. They are just killing the yeast they come in contact with, and not balancing the yeast/bacteria in your body and actually sometimes end up making things a lot worse.

      Oh BTW2 - That's also why many times you'll get a yeast infection after using antibiotics. Antibiotics kill all the bacteria in your body, the good and the bad. When that happens the balance between the yeast and good bacteria is off, and once again and you get a yeast infection.

      Things you can add to your diet (to help promote good bacteria) are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Things you should remove from your diet (to starve the yeast) are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour, alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold

      Changing your diet will definitely get you on the road to balancing the yeast and good bacteria, but what I would also recommend is to use a homeopathic solution to help naturally speed up the process.

      I always feel if there's a natural way to do something, then it's best to avoid the chemicals. I would look for an natural product, that can be taken orally to promote re-growth of the good bacteria in your body.

      There are a few out there, I think they are probably all pretty good. One that I have used and was very effective for me was is yeastrol. Best of Luck!

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

      I added the link I used if you are interested in finding out more.

  29. QUESTION:
    I need help fast! Yeast infection and pregnant!!!! It won't go away!?
    I am about 9 weeks pregnant now, and got a yeast infection because of antibiotics (had a bladder infection). It is extremely uncomfortable and I did the monistat 1 day cure. That is over 5 day ago and I still have grosse, cottage cheese discharge. It isn't as bad and the itching is a little better, but how long does it take? Do I need another cure? Does it just ake longer? And have any other ladies out there Talmud monistat while pregnant?? Doc said it was ok, but I still think it's scary to show a pill up there close to my baby.. I hope someone can give me some answers, I want to get rid of this!!! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can try the monistat vaginal cream for the exterior part of your vagina, and you can try the 5 day suppositories over night ones with a pad on while you sleep. This tends to help and avoid things like yogurt for a few days. Every pregnant women or women taking antibiotics can go through this its normal.

      Yeast infection of the skin or scalp can be treated using natural home remedies.

      Here are a few:

      Oregano Oil has also been tested as a proven method of killing yeast. However, the results are more effective when the oregano oil contains more than 68% of carvacrol which is the most active ingredient in the product.

  34. QUESTION:
    what do you get yeast infection from?
    im just woundering? and how can it be cured? could you get yeast infection if you pregnant? and if you can then how fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast is a bacteria, which exists naturally in the vagina. A yeast infection means that something has upset the balance in the vagina (most commonly stool from wiping the wrong way), and the yeast "blooms", meaning it reproduces very rapidly. Using whipped cream or anything else with sugar in it close the vagina can also cause a yeast infection, since yeast loves to eat sugar.

      A yeast infection can be cured with Monostat, which you can buy at any drug store - or with a pill that your doctor can prescribe for you. Generally, the drug store creams do not cure a yeast infection - they just make the symptoms more bearable while your vagina 'resets' itself.

  39. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection, severe itch...please help!!!?
    I got a yeast infection about a week ago. I have had a few before so I kno what they are. I was put on antibiotics 3 weeks ago for a UTI, and read that antibiotics gives you yeast infections. Well with this 1 came severe itching and burning. I tried not to scratch but it was so bad I had no choice, the itch medicines were not working. I scratched so bad that I scratched the top layer of skin off in a few spots. They are nasty cuts that are trying to blister up. It burns so bad to pee because of all the open cuts. I cured the yeast infection and the only spots that still itch are the cuts. I have tried Vagisil and it doesn't due nothing. What can I put on the cuts to make them heal faster? Please help...this is the worst thing I have ever had to deal with in my life. Oh and I was tested for all STD's when I went to the dct. for the UTI, and I am clean. So no it's not herpes!

    • ANSWER:
      Hmm, I'm surprised that the Vagisil cream didn't work...

      1. Run a warm (just barely warm, not hot) bath and pour about 1 cup of oatmeal in it. Soak for 20 minutes. The oatmeal will help calm down the skin.

      2. Towel dry, and then run the warm (not hot!) hair dryer on your groin area to make sure it is really dry.

      3. I'd give the vagisil cream another try after you've done both of the above because it really does work for me. I bought the "extra strength" kind, it has a lot more medicine in it.

      4. You can make a paste out of oatmeal and milk and put in on your groin for about 20 minutes and then gently wash it off.

      5. You can also try putting a wrapped ice pack over your groin.

      I hope some of these help you!

  40. QUESTION:
    Is it a yeast infection?
    Last week, out of nowhere, my vagina became REALLY itchy. The WHOLE thing, including the clitoris. It was an intense itching that did not go away for a whole week. I didn't think it was a yeast infection, because I had no discharge or burning. I used methods like itch cream (which didn't work) and I left the shower head "down there" for a while to cleanse it. I also constantly wiped it down with a regular wet paper towel. That seemed to help it. It went away after a week, for TWO days only. The itchiness came back, and now I also have burning when I urinate. I checked in the mirror, and I have this white skin tissues on on the vagina, and that wasn't there the last time I checked when the itchiness occurred. It's so embarrassing walking around and having to itch while being discrete as possible. Is it a yeast infection? If not, what is it? And how can I cure it FAST?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it sounds like a yeast infection.

      You don't have to have had all the symptoms for it to be a yeast infection, itching is a major symptom of yeast infection so it is normally a safe assumption that if you've not been at risk of STD's it is likely to be a yeast infection. It may be down to more general irritation or allergic reaction if you've gotten any chemicals down there; bubble baths, soaps, washes, wipes, commercial pads, or commercial liners for example.

      You need to go to the doctor for tests to confirm that it is a yeast infection, then he/she will give you treatment - either tablets or a cream, possibly both. There are over-the-counter treatments and home treatments however it is not recommended that you self-medicate unless you know for SURE that it is a yeast infection as if it isn't the treatments may make it worse.

  41. QUESTION:
    Tried and true natural And diet remedies for yeast infection? Need your help please.?
    There is so much wishy washy information out there that it's time consuming and difficult to sift through everything.
    I already know about eating yogurt & taking garlic supplements (not sure how much and how often). I am also taking a 3 day OTC antifungal (can this damage my bod) & feeling some relief already. I don't want to take diflucan. I decided not to take the oral herbal cure the grocery store had because it contained yeast in it, & that's what I'm trying to fight against! LOL =O
    How much fruit is safe to eat with my plain yogurt and kefir? How much sugar is okay in products like milk or adding Splenda to coffee (which I read that aspartame is also feeding the yeast)?What about fasting?
    I read somewhere it has to do with the pH balance but not to drink sodas because of sugar?
    I do not have diabetes but "sugar" & diabetes has been known to run on both sides of the family.
    Is there anything else I need to know about natural remedies that I have not asked on here?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there, Dear!

      Well, there are a couple of things that you can do to remedy the situation. I have found that you can purchase L-lysine capsules over the counter at your local drug store. You can insert it in the vagina each evening before going to bed. This alkalinizes the area and will give you immediate relief.

      Diet should have no sugar in it whatsoever. If you think about making bread, yeast FEEDS on sugar and that is what makes the bread rise, so sugar is a no-no. Eating short-grain brown rice at least once a day will help to balance your body. You can also take L-lysine orally for a week to balance the PH in your body and eradicate any yeastie-beasties that are still attacking the sugar in your system. Unfortunately, most of the people that suffer from yeast infections, also have a high rate of type II diabetes when they get older. That isn't to say that you can't nip it in the bud right now. The Macrobiotic Diet, by Michio Kushi is an excellent way to combat diabetes and the damage that is created. Unfortunately for me, I didn't know about it when I first developed the disease in my late 20's. Check out his website, that I included below in the "source" area. It has several testimonials and various informative blogs about all sorts of different diseases and their cures utilizing a natural, healthy lifestyle and the consequent diet.

      I hope this helps. An apple cider vinegar douche is said to help for the same reason, though I never tried it for an infection. The above remedy I used frequently. I'm a diabetic and sugar is really my enemy. It was also my favorite food, so needless to say, I had a lot of yeast infections when I was younger. Good luck and feel better soon. I know how awful these infections can be.

    i'm 15 and this is the third time i've had yeast infection and it's also the worst so far. i've had it for a week now and it's just getting worse. i wash the external area with a combination of vinegar and water in the morning and at night. i also use the external creme i bought in a miconazole packet, but i don't use the suringes. whenever i don't wash with the vinegar and apply the creme, it just gets worse, like a rash forms. my symptons areitchiness, and just lately, pain when i go to the bathroom. should i use the suringes? does drinking a lot of water help? is there any way i can cure this fast? because in 2 days i'm going to summer camp which i cannot miss. i'm really desperate, please give me any information you can to help

    • ANSWER:
      You need to go see a doctor now and get this checked out. You cannot self diagnose a yeast infection so go see a doc. You also cannot keep letting this go without seeing a doc because if it is some other infection it could spread to your other organs and cause pelvic inflammatory disease and land you in the hospital. Go to urgent care or ER now and get this checked and treated.

      No, just the way you described that.

      I'd recommend seeing a doctor. You can't be sure it's not a UTI or an STD.

      You're 14 which means you've either had sex or had something close... and 14 year olds are notorious for not washing their hands properly.

    I live with my bf and am sexually active. But my lower area hasn't been feeling too good lately. It has small bumbs on the inside that are slightly itchy. I say slightly because sometimes I even forget it's there. But the worst part is that my lower area has clunky disharge. Like cottage cheese. I'm embarrassed to tell my bf that a possible yeast infection is why I'm withholding sex from him. Is there any fast remedies I could try?

I need a fast easy cure for it (I'm seventeen and my mom isn't the smartest so I don't want to have to ask her to take me to the doctor, so don't say go to the doctor or the free clinic or whatever) please????

    • ANSWER:
      I currently have one as well and have been battling with it for about a month. I tried miconazole cream, the same ingredient in OTC monistat cream and it irritated the hell out of my vagina. This may vary for you though as each women's body responds differently to things. Then my doctor prescribed me diflucan to take for 3 days which didn't help much either. I'm now trying some natural things. Go to www.earthclinic.com click on ailments and then yeast infection. There are natural remedies listed there that you can try.

      My recommendations based on weeks of research of my own is to eat yogurt as it has L.acidophilus bacteria, the bacteria we need to be present in our digestive tract and vaginal area. You can take acidophilus supplements too. I've also read about eating garlic or inserting it into the vagina. It is a natural antifungal that can fight yeasts. Change your eating habits. Avoid sugary foods and carbs. These feed yeasts. You have to eat more protein and fresh veggies. You can soak in a warm bath with salt or apple cider vinegar. It usually helps with the itching and is very relaxing. Hope this helps!

    Yeast infection - help ?
    I want to use the yogurt cure but don't want to use a tampon, any other ways ?? Or other fast cures ? - Thanks x

    • ANSWER:
      *Take Lots of acidophilus/probiotics or eat Unsweetened Yogurt
      *Avoid tight jeans and other tight pants
      *Wear cotton underwear during the day
      *Wear no underwear to bed

      Here's some things to try. I've tired the first two and know they work:

      1. Put a tsp of apple cider vinegar in a 6-8 ounce glass of water and drink it 2-3 times a day.

      2. Mix a tsp of Hydrogen Peroxide in a cup of water and pour over the area.

      3. Fill a bathtub with just enough warm, not hot, water to create a sitz bath (enough water to cover your groin and just up to your belly). Add 2 cups of raw apple cider vinegar and sit in the bath with your knees folded toward your body (not stretched out flat). You can stay in this bath mixture for 15 minutes. Gently pat dry and make sure you are very dry before putting any clothes on. Wear only cotton underpants, preferably washed in natural unscented detergent.

      Different types of infections:

So far, I've been getting by by using my mom's old stand-by of applying Noxzema (spelling?) cream "down there"--which relieves the urge to go and the uncomfortable feeling that urinary tract infections have.
    Anyway, how can I be rid of this? And can cranberry juice have sugar in it? (My mom says no, it'll add to the likelihood of getting a yeast infection. Is that true?)
    Thanks, all!

    • ANSWER:
      Antibiotics are the only thing to get rid of a UTI. SEE YOUR DOCTOR! All of the stuff you are doing now is making it worse. Eventually since you are not treating it correctly it will end up in the kidneys and it will be 100 times worse and could put you in the hospital and very sick.

  50. QUESTION:
    What's the most effective yeast infection treatment?
    I have recurrent yeast infections (in that vicious cycle of BV to Flagyl to yeast to treatment to BV) for the past 3 months. The most successful treatment I've had so far was 2 doses of Monistat 3 back to back (for a total of 6 days of treatment). However, that caused the BV pretty bad, so I went for a more gentle Monistat 7 (which my doctor calls the gold standard) this past time around. NOTHING. It got worse! So, I began to suspect that I'm just all Monistated out and need something else. I am finishing my current round of diflucan, which did not work in the past and while it has helped this time around, has not cured the issue. The last time I went to the doctor she gave up and just gave me an alt. medicine referral. I have been on acidophilius for the past 2 months. It does nothing. I have to start Flagyl AGAIN for BV while I finish the diflucan, but I want to try one of the non-Monistat OTCs in addition. Which one is the best? I would rather have it work with no BV than be fast.

    • ANSWER:
      The one prescription medication my doctor has me use when I have a problem with yeast is Terazol which comes in a cream form. I use the 7 day formulation.

      Because of the problems you are having with the yeast I would recommend asking your doctor about strains that are more difficult to treat such as one call Candida Glabarata.

      Another medicine sometimes used to treat yeast infection is called Nystatin. It also comes in a pill.

      As for acidophillous, it works pretty well but more for trying to prevent yeast infections. It can take 3 months to notice if the acidophillous helps.

      Also, ask your doctor about the possibility of a hormone imbalance to see if that could be playing in to the yeast issue as to why it keeps coming back.

Cure Yeast Infections At Home

Written By: admin - Dec• 26•11

If you can locate some older books on the subject you might well find the listing of a substance called gentian violet. It has been a fairly regularly used home treatment for yeast infections since long before there were actually the modern day antibiotics and anti-fungal treatments that we have.

This can usually be found in a pharmacy in the same section that you might find things like iodine and if you are having trouble locating it most of the folks that work there can walk you right to the products you need.

The application of this treatment is fairly simple, much like most of the treatments that are home inspired. You rub some onto the vulva and inside the vagina with a swab. You will be doing this for several days in order for it to work on the infection. A caution here is that it stains much like iodine.

That means that you would do well to wear black clothing and use heavy and think pads because it will stain everything a deep purple color. That is certainly nothing that you would want to get all over your good clothing or bed linens so take appropriate precautions.

As with anything that you have not tried before, it would be smart of you to try an application in a less sensitive area first to assure yourself that there will be no allergic reaction. An itchy vaginal area from a yeast infection is easy for you to explain. A swollen and itchy vaginal that is bright purple in color might cause a physician or other onlooker some concern so you are better safe than sorry here.

There have been reports that certain countries over seas in Europe have discontinued the sale of this because of possible complications but that has not been medically proven at this point.

If you are suffering from persistent yeast infections, learn more about a yeast infection home remedy that is very effective and will keep the yeast infection away for good. Learn how a Yeast Infection Home Remedy attacks the root cause and not just the symptoms. Just remember, you are not alone fighting this awful problem

    Is There really a way to cure Yeast infection naturally, at home?
    Found some information on the web about how to cure yeast infection at home naturally, what is the best way and does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      Dear Grace, About 2 years ago, I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I have purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before. The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible.

      After doing some research online, I found out about a program called 'natural cure for yeast infection' . Turned out to be a very effective way to cure yeast with only Natural means. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later and I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge. Using your methods, I have kept my chronic yeast infection at bay ever since. No more drugs or OTC’s for me.

      You can read about the treatment and why it works so well on this website: www.natural-yeast-infection-cure.org I would wholeheartedly advise you to do as I did. It Helped me and from what I am able to judge from their site, countless other people.

  5. QUESTION:
    How to cure yeast infection at home?
    How do I get rid of this yeast infection without medicated cream? one I really dont have the money for it and two there is a bunch of snow so were not trying to go to the store right now. I noticed I have been getting them after my period is over but if i leave it alone it eventually goes away but i want it to go away now. Is there anyway to prevent this along with how do i get it cleared up?

    • ANSWER:

  6. QUESTION:
    What is the best at home (box) yeast infection cure?
    I've heard the yogurt thing, but i'm a little skeptical about that, I get them reoccurring quite often so i'm looking for a boxed one to solve the one i have now and maybe some suggests on how to keep my reoccurring yeast and bladder infections away. Perhaps a pill, or natural something anything that can help?

    • ANSWER:
      Perhaps this home remedy might help:
      "Take half a cup of honey into the bathroom. Sit on the toilet and apply honey liberally over the affected area. Let it stay for five to ten minutes and then bathe to clean up. Do this twice a day, morning and just before going to bed at night."

  7. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infection at home?
    I am broke and wondering if there is anything usually carried in the home that can get rid of a yeast infection. I'm desperate

    • ANSWER:
      I've heard of hydrogen peroxide on a cotton ball, or natural plain yogurt on a tampon.

      However, use these with caution. They are home remedies and not generally recommended by medical professionals.

      You should try going to Planned Parenthood and asking if they have some Monistat/Canestan they can sell you at a lowered price, or go to your dr and explain your situation, maybe they have free samples they can give you.

      You must know someone with money...nothing will get rid of it as well as the stuff you buy from the pharmacy. Can't you borrow twenty bucks from your parents or sibling or friend? These things aren't hugely expensive.

  8. QUESTION:
    how to cure yeast infections or vaginal odor at home?

    • ANSWER:
      Use over-the-counter treatments like vaginal suppositories/creams, you can clear it up in a few days. (A doctor can order a prescription pill to take also.)There are a couple of different kinds; if one ingredient doesn't work, try a different one. Also over-the-counter cortisone cream will relieve the itch. Stay clear of sweets, white "carbs" like bread and pasta, eat yogurt with acidophalus cultures included (kills yeast) or take the over-the-counter acidophalus capsules. Wear natural-fiber, loose fitting clothing and cotton panties/bras..this is VERY IMPORTANT. You want to keep the areas as dry as possible. You can apply cornstarch to soothe and dry the areas also. Don't use harsh soaps; try a bath in tipid water with 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a wash cloth tied with a rubberband. It's a great gentle cleanser and won't irritate your delicate skin. If you have an intimate partner, they will want to be treated also as you can pass this back and forth. Douching is not recommended while you're using your yeast medications vaginally. In fact, too much douching can cause more irritation and then with only water or water with a tablespoon of white vinigar. Hope this helps cause I know you must be miserable. God bless.

  9. QUESTION:
    is there anyway to cure a yeast infection at home?
    will it eventually go away?

    • ANSWER:
      For only about 1 out of 4 women will a yeast infection go away on its own and if it happens it's after her period. Most of us cannot stand the itching that long to see if it will go away on its own.

      Most home remedies do NOT work - I know I've tried them - garlic on a string (garlic juice stings so be careful), tea tree oil, yogurt (plain) spread on a pad, eating tons of Plain Yogurt, taking probiotics, etc.

      I highly recommend Monistat 7 day - you can buy it over-the-counter at any drug or grocery store. Make sure it's a yeast infection before you treat yourself.

      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

  10. QUESTION:
    Who's had good luck with the at home yeast infection treatment by Natures Cure?
    I purchased the one day treatment package the includes the vaginal cream and tablets that you take by mouth. The box says it clears most yeast infections. My yeast infection is mild, also. Just curious if it clears and about how long it takes to see improvement. Thanks !

    • ANSWER:
      Most yeast infections can be treated at home with natural methods such as plain yogurt(eat or Insert some into the vagina), bathing with vinegar(so be careful), drink a lot of water, etc. Here are good articles about the truth of this infection and success stories of how to treat a yeast infection naturally. It's very useful for you.

      Don't worry!

  11. QUESTION:
    What's the best way to cure a yeast infection at home?

    • ANSWER:
      Mayo clinic used to say put boric acid (find at any drug store) in a gel-cap (find at drug store) insert at night. In morning symptoms are gone. I think it may still be true, however dosage has varied throughout the years. Use lots has always been my motto. Remember though, no one can really be sure it is yeast unless seen under a scope so if home remedy does not work, don't piddle around, get right in and put your legs in the stirrups. Every girl's dream come true....

      Ps yogurt is not a cure for yeast infection, it is a wives tale. No educated physician will send you home to eat yogurt. The question is home remedy, I usually use the one pill the doc gives, kills it in one day called Diflucan I think.

      More sources besides my opinion:
      Boric acid is a white, crystalline chemical substance that has antifungal and antiviral properties. It is used in various prescription pharmaceutical products and is also available without prescription. Experts now recommend vaginal boric acid capsules as a treatment option for vaginal yeast infections, particularly infections that can't be cured by antifungal yeast infection medications. 1

      If you are pregnant, do not use vaginal boric acid treatment.

      How do I use boric acid?

      You can make your own boric acid suppositories by filling size 00 gelatin capsules with boric acid (approximately 600 mg). Standard yeast infection treatment is one capsule inserted in the vagina at bedtime for 2 weeks. For maintenance treatment of a recurrent infection, boric acid can be used twice a week for 6 months to 1 year. 1, 2

      Is it effective?

      When used to treat vaginal yeast infections that haven't been cured by antifungal medications (such as Monistat or Diflucan), boric acid cures up to 98% of women. After 30 days, symptoms return in some women, making it necessary to use maintenance treatment over several months. 2

      Is it safe?

      When used in capsules as a vaginal suppository, boric acid is only known to occasionally cause skin irritation. However, when used by mouth (internally), on open wounds, or by children, boric acid is toxic. Keep boric acid out of reach of children. Boric acid is not safe to use if you are pregnant.

      Boric Acid Effective Treatment for Chronic Yeast Infections

      COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO., JULY 9, 2004—Few women have not experienced the misery of vaginal yeast infections. An estimated 75 percent of all women are likely to develop such infections sometime during their lives, and about half of them probably will experience recurrent episodes. A simple and inexpensive remedy—boric acid suppositories—may provide relief.

      Yeast infections usually are caused by Candida albicans, a one-celled fungus that normally lives in the vagina, mouth, and digestive tract as a “friendly” fungus that causes no symptoms of active disease. For a number of reasons, however, candida may overgrow and change from a harmless one-cell fungus into long branches of yeast cells called mycelia. This condition is known as candidiasis. The causes of candidiasis are wide ranging. They include:

      · Changes to the vagina’s normal acidic environment from pregnancy, contraception, menopause, and other hormonal factors.
      · Diet, especially too much sugar. Diabetic women are more susceptible to chronic yeast infections because of their blood sugar levels.
      · Other health factors including stress, fatigue, anemia, allergies, and low thyroid levels.
      · Antibiotics, which kill not only harmful bacteria but also the friendly bacteria that live in the vagina to ward off infection.
      · Immune deficiency. HIV infection, steroid drugs, radiation, and chemotherapy can compromise the body’s natural immunity, leaving the vagina prone to yeast development.
      · Menstruation. The warm, moist conditions that menstruation provides encourage yeast growth.
      · Regular douching or use of vaginal sprays, tampons, panty liners, commercial bubble baths, nylon underwear, and nylon tights.

      Classic symptoms of a vaginal yeast infection include severe itching of the external and internal genitalia and a white discharge that may resemble cottage cheese. Other symptoms may include swelling, redness, and irritation of the outer and inner vaginal lips, painful sex, and painful urination due to irritation of the urethra.

      Oral antifungal medications such as fluconazole or topical antifungal preparations such as miconazole and clotrimazole, inserted into the vagina as a cream or suppository, typically are prescribed to treat yeast infections. Boric acid, a chemical with mild antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties, is another inexpensive and often effective remedy. In one study of 92 women with chronic yeast vaginitis that had failed to respond to treatment with over-the-counter or prescription antifungal medicines, 98 percent of the women successfully treated their infections with 600 mg boric acid capsules inserted into the vagina twice per day for two-to-four weeks.1 Other studies have shown cure rates of 92 to 100 percent.2

      Boric acid is available from compounding pharmacies in powder form and can be packed into empty gelatin capsules for use as suppositories. Boric acid suppositories should not be used during pregnancy and is very toxic if taken orally. It should be kept out of children’s reach. No serious side effects have been reported from the use of boric acid as a treatment for vaginitis.

      For more information on boric acid suppositories and other health topics, visit www.collegepharmacy.com. Established in 1974, College Pharmacy is one of the largest, most comprehensive compounding pharmacies in North America. The pharmacy is equipped with state-of-the art technology that allows its technicians to compound virtually any product for custom, individualized therapy.

  12. QUESTION:
    how can i permanently cure my yeast infection at home within 12 hours?

    • ANSWER:
      Treatment, whether home brewed or prescription, takes at least a week.
      And there is no permanent cure. Yeast is very common. Proper hygiene and avoiding unprotected sex with infected partners will reduce your chance of reinfection.

  13. QUESTION:
    How do you cure yeast infection at home?
    I'm 13, a virgin, and for a while, probably about 3 months now, I've been having symptoms of what I believe to be yeast infection. My symptoms are:
    *Burning/itching of the vagina
    *Unusual discharge
    etc. etc. etc.

    Could someone please let me know if I most likely have yeast infection? If so, can someone please let me know of a home remedy besides the yogurt one? Thanks!
    Also, I need to use a remedy A.S.A.P.........would it be bad to use any kind of flavored yogurt? That's the only one I have around the house now....Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      yes, sounds like it.

      you can buy plain yogurt and put it in and around your vagina. also, eat a lot of yogurt too... its a good at home remedy that works, if you dont want to go buy a tube of cream from the drug store--they can be pricey.

      oops sorry, i guess i didnt read that part--well, yogurts the only one i know of that works. otherwise, you can use foot fungus cream... maybe you have some around your house?

  14. QUESTION:
    Had a UTI but now I think I have a yeast infection? Normal? How to cure Y.I at home?
    Okay so I'm on the last few days of my UTI medicine and I have been inching down there for maybe 2 days now. Is it normal to get a yeast infection after a UTI? Also I can't afford to go back to the doctor so how do I treat a yeast infection at home? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can buy kits at the store that will screen you to make sure it is a yeast infection and if it is, they also have products to treat it. The most well known brand is Monistat. If you do test, and it is not a y.i. you need to go the doctor and get checked out.

      It is not necessarily common after a UTI, but some medications and antibiotics can cause them

  15. QUESTION:
    What are some at home cures for yeast infections & how to tell if you've passed it to your boyfriend?
    I think, because of the symptoms I'm having (i.e. vaginal itching, dryness, and a cottage cheese like discharge + swelling at one point in time), that maybe my pregnancy has caused me to get a yeast infection. I want to know if there are any at home remedies or cures for it before I decide to goto the doctor even though I know that's whats best. I also would like to know how I can tell if I've passed the infection to my boyfriend. What are the signs and symptoms?

    • ANSWER:
      From your symptoms it sounds like it could be a bacterial infection - not a yeast infection. You really need to go and find out what kind of infection you have - the treatments are very different. Plus I do not think you want if to affect the baby when it is born - one of the causes of Thrush in newborns I believe.

  16. QUESTION:
    is there an at home way to cure yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Here are listed a couple of the home remedies for yeast infection:

      · Regularly daubing apple cider vinegar in the areas prone to this infection. Your can add some garlic to stop the itchy feeling; and water to dilute the vinegar concentration

      · Curds or yogurt is regarded as one of the best home remedies. In fact, it is advisable to soak a tampon into curds and place it in the infected region for at least an hour. Basically, the healthy required bacteria from the curds will replace the unhealthy yeast bacteria. This could be repeated twice to thrice a day.

      · Drink at least two glasses of buttermilk a-day, whether infected or not. In fact making curds a part of the daily diet in take reduces the probability of yeast infection.

      · Mixture of olive leaf extract with grapefruit seed extraction a glass of water is a good curative tonic for this infection.

  17. 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?

    I havnt started my first period yet so tamons are out of the question. I dont even want to use a tampon even if i start my period. I bet ill try em but maybe the 4th time for my period.

    • ANSWER:
      You can get yeast treatment at the rug store. GEnerally in the aisle next to where tampons are. One good brand is monistat. They have 1 day, 3-day, and 7-day treatment. Get the 3 or 7 day, not the 1 day, since the 1-day treatment isn't usually strong enough.

  20. QUESTION:

      no home remedies will help. the only thing to do is call a gyno. i have mistaken baceterial infections for yeast infections many times and monistat, etc. could cause a bacterial to get worse. just call your gyno.

    • ANSWER:
      Plain yogurt inserted into the vagina will get rid of a yeast infection. Do it in the evening and wear a pad. Eating yogurt and taking an acidophilus supplement will also help to prevent recurrance. Believe it or not you can use garlic to get rid of your yeast infection, too. Take a clove of garlic (one of the pieces off a head of garlic), peel it, cut a slit in it, then insert into the vagina. Replace several times a day for a few days. You should see your syptoms disappear.

  22. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection home cures?
    I'm pretty sure I have a yeast infection. It's swollen and really itchy. Sometimes it burns when i pee. Lol. Are there any Home remedies that can cure it soon? Also, if you take a urine test and blood test at the doctors, can they tell if you have a yeast infection? Because I'm going to the doctors soon for a check-up. :[ Lastly, if it's itchy down there and you scratch it a lot, is it bad? Does it make it worse? Pleaaseee help! :[

    • ANSWER:
      There are home remedies, but honestly none of them are that dependable. The best way to deal with a yeast infection is with the over the counter creams made for the purpose. Most common brand is Monostat, and it will be sold near where the usual feminine products are sold. You can also get a cream that will help relieve the itch and burn sensations as well. It's best to use the three day product, to be most certain- although you can also use the traditional seven day treatment. If there are still symptoms of the infection after you use the three day version, repeat again using the seven day one. At the same time you treat yourself, you will want to gather up all your undies. Wash them in the hottest water you can, and bake dry in a dryer. Those that can't handle hot water or bake dry need to be microwaved for a couple minutes. You must also avoid sex while you are treating yourself as well. It won't hurt the mister, but he'll just give it back to you again. When you see a doctor, to be able to diagnose a yeast infection they have to take a swab and a sample of the discharge to look at under a microscope. The infection will not show up in either a urine test or a blood test- although some of the other sexually transmitted diseases will. You need to treat yourself as soon as possible, using the right cream. It's not healthy to be scratching the itch, as it harms tender tissues even more, and won't solve the problem. In fact, it can just make it worse. Get to a store and get the cream. It usually works well within a day to make you much more comfortable. Nothing you eat- like yogurt, is going to help. Smearing yogurt on yourself won't either- because the source of the problem is inside where you can't reach it. While the yogurt can help the external itch, it just doesn't get to the root of the problem. So do yourself a favor and just buy the cream.

  23. QUESTION:
    is this a yeast or bladder infection? how to cure at home?
    I think I have a yeast infection or bladder infection because it itches down there, and a couple of days ago I had some goopy clear when I wiped, but I do not have my period right now, and so I'm not sure if its a yeast infection or not, because there is no odor, and so is there any home remedies I can try... I cant afford to go to the doctors right now.

    I read online that you can dip a tampon into yogurt and insert it for about 1 hour and that gets rid of the bad yeast, but I do not use tampons, and so is there anything else I can do or that anyone else has done to cure this?

    • ANSWER:

  25. QUESTION:
    Do i have a yeast infection,how to cure it at home?
    I have had my period since February. It's still irregular though. I have had a slight tuna-like smell coming from my vagina since the summer. Around August i noticed i had a tad fishy smell. It has became a little worse since then. I don't think anyone really notices though. It is fine in school until around my fourth class, i can smell it through out the day and i am becoming very very very self conscience about it. I get a little bit too much discharge and it is defiantly the smell. After i shower at night i can not smell it, only around [like i said] my fourth class i can start to smell it a little. It gradually gets worse through the day. Is this a yeast infection? How can i cure it without going to the doctor? I don't want to go to a doctor or tell mom my crotch smells bad, so please tell me ways to cure this and if you don't mind please tell me your source

    Thanks and Happy Holidays Everyone!
    Is it possible this smell is much stronger to me then anyone else? Because like i said, no one seems to notice.

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like Bacterial Vaginosis. That requires a trip to the doctor and a pill. Its an antibiotic. I work with Nurse Practitioners, and they see this all the time. The pill will cure it but you must get medical attention.

  28. QUESTION:
    How do you cure a yeast infection naturally?
    Are there any ways of curing a yeast infection naturally at home? What are some easy and fast ways of curing it?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all cranberry juice is better for bladder infections.

      Find a yogurt that has pro-biotics in it and eat 2 a day for a week or there are several medicines you can buy at a place like Fred Meyer's that are natural probiotics that will help level out the yeast in your body. One is called AZO Yeast and there are several other brands that do the same thing.

      Also, do your best to stay cool, dry and clean down there. I used to actually lay in front of a fan with just some light cotton pajama pants on (so I could feel the air down there) and would read for like a half hour 2-3 times a day. It really will help if you can keep it dry and cool (yeast only grows in damp and warm areas).

  30. QUESTION:
    can a yeast infection be cured at home, if yes how?

    • ANSWER:
      Can yeast infections be treated? The answer is yes. The main way to treat a yeast infection is to feed the body alkaline-based ingredients that will counteract the acid and bring the body back into balance. Once the body restores its acid/alkaline balance, all the yeast will be destroyed, since there will be no more breeding ground for the yeast to grow. The best product for this treatment is yogurt. Why yogurt? The simple reason is that yogurt contains an ingredient that creates good bacteria. This ingredient is Acidophilus. This element has been known to produce good bacteria that eliminate all kinds of bad bacteria in the body. The only problem people have with yogurt is the milk content. Many people have allergies to milk, and thusly can’t tolerate the lactose or sugar in milk. In this case, the best way around this would be to take acidophilus tablets. By taking these tablets, you get the same amount as if you ate three yogurts.

      If you decide to eat yogurt or take the acidophilus tablets to treat the yeast infection, make sure to give the treatment at least two weeks to work. This will give the system time to accumulate enough good bacteria so as to fight the bad bacteria. When the two weeks are over, you will notice the difference. You will no longer itch around your vaginal area, or anywhere else on your body.

      Once the yeast infection goes away, don’t stop the treatment. Continue to take the tablets or eat the yogurt so as to prevent the acid from returning, because if acid returns more abundantly in the system, yeast will follow. If you don’t feel like eating yogurt every day, take acidophilus tablets once a day. It will be like taking a vitamin supplement. Another way around yeast infections is to take part in external care. This involves wearing only cotton fabrics. Cotton fabrics absorb heat and moisture.

      Besides wearing proper clothing and eating yogurt or taking acidophilus tablets, you may need to change your diet, especially since some foods can produce a lot of acid. This in turn raises the acid level in the body. The best way to deal with your diet is to study the food pyramid and eat foods from each food group. Start out basic and add one food item until you feel like a yeast infection is returning. When you start itching, this is a great sign you ate something that creates a lot of acid. More than likely it was the last thing you ate. If so, eliminate it and see if the itching stops after a couple of days.

    How to cure my dogs yeast infection?
    My dog has a yeast infection in both of his years. What is the best home cure that I can do for him? He's going to the vet at the end of the month. I want to try and help him before that so if it works he doesn't have to go through this anymore.

    • ANSWER:
      He needs to go to the vet now so the vet can do an ear swab and find out what kind of yeast (or other pathogen) is causing the problem. You can medicate a dog for a month for candidiasis and it will do nothing to alleviate malasezzia, orr vice versa. Most yeast infections in dogs are easily treatable but have to be diagnosed correctly.

      Bonzie 12, you don't treat yeast or other fungal infections with antibiotics. This often makes them worse as it kills friendly bacteria that help to fight the yeast infection. You have to use a different class of drugs called antimycotics.

  35. QUESTION:
    How can i cure my yeast infection with a tampon and yogurt?
    ive been reading articles on how to cure my yeast infection at home and a lot
    of them said that dipping a tampon that contained live cultures and then inserting it in your vagina works really well so i want to try it because it sounds easy and sounds like its not much work but ive never used a tampon before (im 15 years old) so i dont know what to do. i really dont want to have to tell my mom because we are not close at all i really want to ge rid of it im soo tired of having it. i get tons of discharge and its discusting ive been having yeast infection for more than 2 years straight i know this sounds pretty gross but i dont know what to do anymore i just want to get rid of it FAST ... also do you think i should try the tampon thing??

    thanxxz<3

    • ANSWER:
      When it comes to stuff like that don't do home remedies. They don't work. Also the cultures don't cure the infection. It only regulates the PH after the fact and you eat it for it to work. Since you can't get rid of it on your own go to a doctor. Also I doubt you would have had it for 2 years straight. You would have some serious damage to your reproductive organs right now and you would have PID.

    • ANSWER:
      if you have yeast infection then you must get rid of it as soon as it is possible!!!

      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection 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) also you should use some 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 (almost 2 years) ...

  38. QUESTION:
    How to treat a yeast infection at home?
    I've had a yeast infection for about a month now. The cream I got from the doctor didn't quite get rid of it. I've been doing research on it and from what I hear, many people find home remedies are the best way to actually cure the problem. However, there are a lot of different methods from different sites and I have no clue which to use.

    If you have had experience with this problem, please tell me what you think is the most effective treatment. If it makes any difference, I'm a guy. (Yes, guys can get them too)
    Please avoid giving any answers that involve "go back to your doctor." Maybe you don't see it the same way I do but I don't believe they are the ultimate ruler of how to treat medical issues. I could come up with the idea of going back to the doctor by myself, please say something more constructive.

      I don't know... but maybe eat some yogurt... I'm not sure if it can help a yeast infections... but it can prevent it... well, that's what my doctor told me to eat when I went on an antibiotic...

    people suggest yogurt- how much do i need to eat? and when will it start to get better?

    • ANSWER:
      i have infact had this infection and here are some ways to help it go away

      Step 1 Eat yogurt. It contains helpful bacteria (live cultures, including acidophilus and bifidus) that destroy yeast. It also works when applied topically. Insert some into the vagina using a finger or plastic tampon applicator. Use only plain yogurt with active cultures.

      Step 2 Take lactobacillus/acidophilus supplements. Use according to the directions on the bottle.

      Step 3 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.

      Step 4 Decrease or eliminate sugar and sugary foods. Sugar promotes yeast growth.

      Step 5 Use a garlic clove as a suppository. Garlic contains a natural anti-fungal agent. Peel a fresh clove, wrap it in gauze and insert it into the vagina.

      Step 6 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.

      Step 7 Use an herbal douche. Combine equal amounts of sage, raspberry and comfrey with 1/4 part goldenseal. This can be combined with cider vinegar.

      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

    Is there a way to help fix it at home? Dont really want to ask my mom about it (16). We have anti-fungal creams and lotrimin (clotrimazole) but they're creams and meant for external use only.
    Dont have any yogurt, I've heard that helps but no one in our family likes it so we never have.

    Anyway, if anyone can help, thank you!
    First time getting this... Its not that i dont have a doctor but its a family doctor and i havent been there in years. Which isnt really a good thing. I thought about asking my mom to take me to a gyno.

  45. QUESTION:
    Can acidophilus cure a yeast infection?
    I've had bad experience with department store and perscription yeast infection treatments, so I turned to a more natural, at home alternative.

    I stumbled upon acidophilus. I took a tablet, and within 5 minutes my symptoms were gone. No more itching, discharge, or soreness. I was amazed.

    I didn't take one the next day, and the symptoms came back, although not as bad as they had been. The day after that I took another one, and once again, the symptoms were gone.

    I'm wondering if the tablets are curing the infection, or just providing temporary relief of the symptoms? Any input/experience is appreciated.

    If they are actually curing the infection, how long should I continue to take the capsules, and how many billion bacteria can I ingest per day? (my capsules are 2 billion)

    • ANSWER:
      Acidophilus tends to help rebalance the intestinal microflora, which can really lead to a healthier gut and fewer cases of yeast infection in the future. For this reason it can help to cure a yeast infection, but it is not generally accepted to work as well as a medicine. This is still a new area of research, but looks promising.

    Does this really cure a yeast infection in girls?
    Does this really cure a yeast infection in girls?
    About a week ago I had an itchy vagina and my mom got me vagisil. It worked for a while and so did vasaline but now I am having the gross white discharge and it just stings not helps! I don't want to tell my mom about the discharge, because she'll make me go to the doctor and then they'll look at my vag and I don't want that so does this home treatment really work?

    Fill a bathtub with warm water enough to cover the affected area. Add ½ cup or so salt, enough to make the water really salty and ½ cup vinegar. Immerse your self into the bath tub for approx 20 - 30 minutes. This is easy cleansing solution for your vaginal area.

    THANKS (PS I AM 11)

    Also do you have any other things that would work with out putting things in there, and with out any doctors...

    Do I HAVE to tell my mom? How do I bring it up? She knew I had an itchy vag, but a yeast infection, she didn't know about.

    Guy with a yeast infection, how can I cure it?
    So I'm a 17 year old guy and I'm about 95% sure I've got a yeast infection. Obviously I dont want to tell my parents or go to a doctor so is there any way I can solve this problem at home?

    Also if I have sex will my partner get it?

    • ANSWER:
      Yeast infections aren't that easy to permanently get rid of. Many products can temporarily relieve the symptoms, but a long term treatment approach will be your best bet to completely elliminate it.

      One of the more popular and effective homeopathic solutions is yeastrol. It's very effective at treating vaginal, penile and oral yeast infections.

      What you can also do to speed your recovery is to change you diet in a way that will starve the yeast organisms (Candida).

      Things that you should remove from your diet are all sodas, sugars, fruit, fermented foods, foods containing white flour,
      alcohol (especially beer), antacids and any product that has yeast or mold.

      Things to add to your diet are live yogurt cultures (or take Acidophilus), plenty of water, fresh vegetables, lots of protein rich foods, whey protein, raw garlic, nuts, seeds, oils, millet, rice and oat brans

      Another thing to keep in mind is that both you and your partner should consider the diet change/yeastrol treatment as you can be passing the infection back and forth between you.

      Hope this helps and best of luck! :)

Cure Yeast Infections

Written By: admin - Dec• 26•11

Vaginal yeast infection is one of the most common conditions that women experience several times during their lives and statistics say that about 80% of all women will get the infection at some point. So, if you are infected do not panic. We may even say that you experience a common condition.

The primary cause of yeast infections are microorganisms that live naturally in our body. Candida albicans is a fungus that lives on the skin and inside your vagina all the time. These microorganisms are usually present in small amounts, but in some cases an overgrowth of Candida occurs. The body then reacts in a way that results with an infection. The symptoms are very unpleasant and include itching, redness, irritations, and white or yellowish vaginal discharge.

Vaginal yeast infection can be treated in many different natural and pharmaceutical ways so you do not have to worry a lot about it. There are many drugs available in every local drugstore, and they are quite effective in treating Candida infections. Many home remedies are excellent, but you have to know what you are doing. For example, garlic, yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and many other things including hydrogen peroxide are a quick and easy home made solution for your yeast infection problems.
Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound that is already present in the vaginal area. It's function is to put the yeast microorganisms under control. However, sometimes the environment in the vaginal area becomes favorable to the overgrowth of Candida albicans. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural cure for Candida and generally helps eliminate bacteria and fungal infections.

How does it work? Peroxide breaks down into water and oxygen upon application. The oxygen helps to destroy the fungal yeast infection.

Since our body produces very little amounts of peroxide you can mix a teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water and apply it on the affected areas. Such a dissolved solution will not do any harm to the vaginal area. However, when creating your own mix of hydrogen peroxide solution you should be very careful. Too much hydrogen peroxide in the solution can cause a burning sensation in the affected areas. A teaspoon of 3% peroxide in a glass of water should be a safe mix.

The mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water should definitely not be the only thing you do for your yeast infection. Natural methods should be combined with proper diet and the use of other remedies like garlic paste, yogurt, and cider vinegar.

If you are tired of not being able to cure your yeast infection, why don't you switch to safe and simple natural methods and finally get your health back? Thousands of people round the world have tried and succeeded with our yeast infection course. There is no reason to think that this will not work for you as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is collidal silver a cure for yeast infections?
    i an a diabetic, 23 years old and have had a never ending yeast infection for about a year now. i take medication, goes away for about 3 weeks, then comes back again. I have read in the internet that "colloidal silver" is a good way to cure yeast infections....... does anyone know anything about it and has anyone tried it? or if not, what other ways can i cure this chronic yeast infection.

    • ANSWER:
      I certainly wouldn't use it. The government is trying to get it banned as it causes too many health issues rather than benefits. It can actually cause your skin to turn a blue grey and can cause internal organ toxicity.

      More than likely, your blood sugars are too high. Yeast thrives on sugar. You need to keep it constantly below 110. Otherwise you're going to have this a wile.

      Eat more yogurt. The lactobacillus in it likes to counteract the yeast and keep it in check. If you don't like yogurt, you can get the lactobacillus OTC. I use AZO. Take 2 of them 3 times a day for about a week and then take one a day every day. It'll help keep you regulated in terms of keeping yeast down and there's no side effects to it that are harmful.

    How to cure yeast infections ?
    how to cure yeast infections naturally?

    • ANSWER:
      There are effective natural cures for yeast infections available that can help to soothe the discomfort and frustration of a yeast infection and other symtoms of thrush, resolving the infection without the use of prescriptions and OTC drugs. They contain ingredients such as Cymbopogon citratus (Lemon grass), Calendula officinalis, and Tabebuia impetiginosa (Pau d'arco bark). All have antibacterial and antifungal properties that effectively remove toxins and help to support the overall natural maintenance systems in the body.

      Natural treatment for vaginal thrush has proven to be effective as well for relieving the pain and discomfort of candidiasis and for controlling candida overgrowth. There are many herbs with anti-fungal properties which may be used topically or internally to deal with the problem.

      Apart from treating the fungal overgrowth itself, herbal remedies can also help to improve immune system strength, thereby helping to protect the body against future attacks. Herbal and homeopathic treatments are not only safe and effective to use, but also non-addictive without any side effects.

  7. QUESTION:
    Is Vinegar safe to help cure yeast infections?
    I got a pill from the doctor and it didn't completly make it go away. I don't want to go back. I head Vinegar and Water mixed helps cure it fast. Is that true? If so, what are ways to use it. Bath? Douche? What?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, vinegar and plain water will help. Vinegar has long been know as a treatment - not cure - for yeast infections. It has anti-fungal and disinfectant properties. Use 1 capful to about 8 ounces of warm water and douche. But don't douche more than 2x per week or you will dry the vaginal tissue too much. Buy some acidophilus tablets or probiotics, and take one capsule by mouth morning and one night before bedtime. And there are many over-the-counter anti-yeast creams that you can use - Clotrimazole, Gyne lotrimin, Monistat. It would be better to use those than take a pill by mouth. The anti-fungal medications are quite strong and can be hard on the body. Best bet, use the creams and take the acidophilus for 7 days and then stop the cream. Then keep taking the acidophilus one at night for the next two weeks, and once you are clear you might want to take it once a week as a preventive measure.

Dampen a tampon, roll it in the acidophiles, and insert (the best you can, as you took it out of the pkg.) Leave it in for 15-30 min. I know this sounds crazy, but it works!!

    What are good ways to cure internal yeast infections in infants?
    My 18 month old daughter had a yeast infection in her diaper area about two months ago. I used so OTC drugs on it, and have not had any more problems with it, or so I thought.... Resently it has been brought to my attention that it is possible that she has an internal infection. She has been having whiteish stools (Kinda looks like she has been nursing, but no she has not) She has severe problems with diarea, and a continuosly runny nose. So, if anyone has any ideas on curing it naturally, they would be appreciated!

      The best way to reduce yeast infection naturally is to use diet based approach to limit the growth of candida yeasts. Eating yogurt is one such way to suppress yeast infection. I personally find drug based approach useless as you have to keep using drugs and too much drug is definitely not good for your health. Also healthy body gives you healthy immune system, which will help you fight yeast infection, therefore you should combine exercise with dietary approach to combat yeast infection.

      I hope this helps

    Has anyone tried it, did it work and if so, how much better would you say it was at curing thrush then just relying on medications?

    e.g. http://www.yeastinfectionadvisor.com/candidadiet.html

    • ANSWER:
      I sure have tried it buddy and it resolved a whole host of symptoms for me including an infection in my fingernails !! You most definitely do need to avoid all yeast and sugar products to kill a yeast infection ......... sugar will literally feed the yeast overgrowth allowing it to flourish......... ditch the alcohol and sodas and diet sodas too if you drink any .......... antiobiotics, especially broad - spectrum antiobiotics will also kill the helpful bacteria which you need for a healthy gut ........ hence they really aren't any good for resolving the problem but good at producing new ones ...... supplement with a good quality probiotic to rebalance gut flora ......... eat more alkaline forming foods such as leafy and green vegies, fresh fishes such as 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 ........the leafy greens and fishes are also rich in calcium and protein and the fish are a rich source of vitamin D too ....... 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 .......... don't forget about getting enough iron on a daily basis too ie ~ lean red meats ..... Avoid sugars such as honey, molasses, fructose, maltose, lactose (that means all milk and dairy products) 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 ♥

      truly, eat loads and loads of green and leafy vegies, squeeze lemon juice over it to spice it up and help torch bacteria and bolster both your immunity and digestive process ........ and and brown rice / quinoa and watch it clear up........ oh, drink loads and loads of fresh filtered water to ... to ensure you are properly hydrated as the healthiest and happiest body will always be the most hydrated one .

      hope you feel better soon

  21. QUESTION:
    After taking fluconazole (the one pill to cure yeast infections) is it okay to have sex?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to wait a week after treating the yeast infection be fore having sex. If you have sex while you still have a yeast infection, it can not only be really uncomfortable and make the infection worse, but it can also pass the infection to your partner, and he can pass it back to you. Male yeast infections usually go untreated, but they can cause major problems down the road for a guy. So wait about a week and be sure you have NO symptoms before having sex. Don't use tampons during that time either if you do get your period.

    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.

  27. QUESTION:
    Does Folic Acid Cure Yeast Infections?
    I have been taking folic acid for a little over a month now and I see no change in the symptoms of my yeast infection. Does folic acid really cure years infections???

    • ANSWER:
      No, it doesn't. A yeast infection is caused by the overgrowth of Candida Albicans, and your best hope of getting rid of it is to use one of the anti-fungal creams sold for the purpose. Since you've had it for at least a month, I don't think the one day treatment will completely rid it for you and I think you might want to use the full week treatment. If that doesn't do the trick to clear it up, then the next step would be to see the doctor and have him/her confirm that is all you have. Meantime, you need to wear all cotton undies, no pantyhose, and no sex. The fellows just harbor the yeast and give it back to you- so you want to be cleared up first.

  30. QUESTION:

    dont wanna go to the doc and spread open for them to go diggin so i wondered if the otc stuff cured it or just relieved symptoms

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to get rid of yeast infection then you must follow these tips - they worked for me:

      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) also you should use some 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 (almost 2 years) ...

  31. 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

  32. QUESTION:
    Does miconazole cream really cure yeast infections?
    If have a yeast infection it really itchy an sore. would miconazole cream work?. I don't know how I get them but every month after my period I get a yeast infection. I think it was the birth control pills that I was taking that messed up my vaginal balances. . Because I never had a yeast infection until I was put on birthcontrol..

    • ANSWER:
      I completely agree with nfranjo that Miconazole is a cream to fight yeast infections, but I wanted to add a couple points.
      First and foremost, this will only treat the current infection and won't prevent it from coming back. It sounds like it was either a coincidence that you started getting the infections when you started the pill or it may have messed up your hormones more than you could have expected... it's also possible if the starting of that pill accompanied sexual activity if you didn't "clean up afterward", but that's your business.

      In any case, if you are getting yeast infections every month or close to it, I would really recommend taking some Probiotics. Yogurt and Kefir have Probiotics in them so you could eat either of those daily, but no where near as much as a good Probiotic supplement (one with 4-10+ billion viable organisms from several strains) can. Probiotics are the good bacteria in your system that help to keep the bad stuff at bay and many women report that Yogurt and/or Probiotics help to minimize or prevent yeast infections better than any OTC creams or medicines.
      For quick relief, you may want to try the Miconazole or any other yeast infection treatment and then start on Probiotics to help minimize or prevent future outbreaks. Of course, also make sure you wear cotton underwear, keep the area down there clean, and make sure it breathes enough to help make the environment down there less ideal for yeast to grow in. ;-) Good luck and I hope I helped!

  33. QUESTION:
    Does Hydrogen Peroxide cure yeast infections?
    So I found this article that said Hydrogen Peroxide would cure a yeast infection. I'm a bit skeptical of this, isn't hydrogen peroxide going to harm the inside of your vagina? Has anybody ever tried using Hydrogen Peroxide to cure their yeast infection?

    Here's the link of the website that I found if you wanna check it out! http://www.nutritionarticlesonline.com/yeast_infection_instant_cure.html

    • ANSWER:
      I've seen that as well. Some planned parenthood clinics have fliers about it.
      Here is the rational - the bacteria in the vagina produce hydrogen peroxide (yes, you read that right) and that alters the pH of the vagina so that 1) "good bacteria" which fight pathogens (disease causing germs) find it a more hospitable pH, and 2) the H202 itself kills pathogens.

      However - I still wouldn't suggest it.
      See, you can do two things
      1) wash away that "good bacteria" so it wont do you any good
      2) you will swing the pH in the totally opposite direction - which is practically a guarantee of giving yourself a case of bacterial vaginosis, which is a nastier infection to get rid of - those always require a doctors care.

  34. QUESTION:
    how to cure yeast infections?
    what type of medicines should i use?

    • ANSWER:
      You can get Monostat or Canestin from your pharmacy. If that doesn't help you should go to the doctor, they can prescribe dillfilcan pills which also helps treat a yeast infection.

  35. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infections?
    Um.. Im a little young and I have an yeast infection and Im totally freaked out... Alot of creams says that its for 12 and older. And I really don't know what to do. HELP PLEASE :*( Im really stressed out! I know you need to eat yougurt,drink water,don't have a lot of sugar. PLEASE! AND THANK YOU!!!

    • ANSWER:
      You can try yogurt or take a bath with baking soda in it. That may help a little bit but if you want it to go away you need medication.
      Listen, don't be so scared okay? This happens to every woman and it's not that serious. You really should talk to your mom. She may want you to see the doctor to confirm it is a yeast infection. Trying to treat it with over the counter medications isn't always a good idea if you aren't sure you have a yeast infection because they can actually give you a bacterial infection.
      If your discharge is thick, white, and looks like cottage cheese it's probably a yeast infection. You would also feel itchy and possibly sore.
      It's best to talk to your mom hon. She can advise you best on what to do because you are young and she can decide if you should see a doctor. You will be okay!

  36. QUESTION:
    does any body know anything to cure yeast infections on the face or may be has another name?

    • ANSWER:
      How do you know it's a yeast infection? I've had yeast infections on my skin, and I had to go see my doctor to confirm that it was a yeast infection, and to get some medicine to apply to the area. I'm diabetic, and so I'm prone to yeast (and all other sorts of) infections, and I suspected it was yeast, but again, I'm rather puzzled at how you know it's yeast.

      Yes, I know how to cure it, but I want to be sure it's yeast, first.

      It's not "all natural" yogurt that you need to eat, it's LIVE CULTURE. The live culture yogurt has bacteria that your body needs to counteract bad bacteria. You can also get tablets that contain this bacteria, if you can't stand the taste of yogurt. This won't necessarily cure your infection, even if it is yeast.

      There are over-the-counter yeast medications, in the feminine hygiene area of the store. Be sure you don't get a homeopathic remedy, as they don't work.

  37. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried home remedies to cure yeast infections?
    I found this site http://www.grannymed.com/meds/yeast-infection.aspx to naturally cure yeast infections.

    *Put yogurt on a tampon and change every 2 hrs to cure yeast infections. Has anyone ever tried this and if so, did it work?
    EDIT:
    How much yogurt do you put?
    EDIT:

    I saw all those sites that cost for natural cures fast. Ally May - Can you tell me how so I don't have to pay for it. :)
    Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      I've never tried yogurt internally. However, if you eat yogurt with live and active cultures the cultures may eventually help regulate the yeast. It won't cure an actual infection though. Sounds crazy but while living in another country where yeast infections medication was not sold over the counter, I used a cotton ball soaked with white vinegar to clean the inner labia. This helped to relieve the itching associated with the yeast. Be warned, it will sting a bit.

  38. QUESTION:
    has anyone ever heard of using turpentine to cure yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      OOO, no way do not do that!! That would be incredibly painful and offer no help at all, if anything it will severely aggrivate it and make it much worse! Go to your pharmacist or doctor and get some proper advice.

  39. QUESTION:
    How to cure a yeast infection naturally?
    Does anyone know how to cure yeast infection naturally? My brother has serious problems and has visited several doctors but he is stil not OK. Please help.

    • ANSWER:
      don't take penicillin. it will make your brothers yeast infection worse. go to the drug store and get over the counter crap. it is the best thing you can do. now if you don't want any meds than you can try cranberry juice and pissing a lot. that is what i tell people to do who have UTI's. Good luck.

  40. QUESTION:
    What is the best cure for yeast infections?

    • ANSWER:
      Acidophiles. Get it at the health food store, the liquid drinks are usually the best and have the highest in active cultures. You can also take capsule form and they can advice you on the strength and amounts to be effective. Acidophiles is the healthy bacteria we all have in our bodies to control the introduction of bad bacteria. Yogurt does not contain enough of this good bacteria to be effective once the infection has already occurred. But consuming it regularly can help maintain a healthy system once your infection is under control. You can also make Acidophiles drinks a regular part of your diet as well, many of them are great tasting.

  41. QUESTION:

    There's so many different things to cure yeast infection but I was just wondering if there's a fast and easy way to cure it? I am going out tomorrow and it's really irritating so I just want to get it over and done with. Any suggestions how to make it better?

    Thankyou :)

    • ANSWER:
      Just found a rockin Yeast Infection site for online deals
      http://www.yeastinfection-review.com/. The book will teach you how to kill these spores. It will also discuss to you the fact that many drugs only offer “Band-Aids” treatment which only masks symptoms and discuss to you as well the real kind of treatment you need to be healthy for life.

  42. QUESTION:
    What's the story with yogurt curing yeast infections?
    I have seen people write about how yogurt cures yeast infections - some say by eating it and others by actually putting it on the infected area. I'm all about natural remedies, but does this actually work?!

    • ANSWER:
      It's the healthy bacterias in yogurt that do the job.

      I may be a guy, but I know cuz my kid sister used to get yeast infections all the time and my mom would be all on her all the time about eating enough yogurt and enough of the right yogurt.

      The best yogurt that she ate was Yo-Baby. I guess it's made for babies pretty much but it comes with all the right cultures (bacteria) that promote your health. I've tried it and it rules! Only thing that sucks is that it comes in pretty small containers since it was originally intended for babies.

      Yes, it actually works.

  43. QUESTION:
    Eating yogurt to cure yeast infection?
    I've had yeast infections before but i have never tried eating yogurt to cure it. For the past 3 weeks i've ate yogurt daily and have taken yeast infection pills. Recently, clumps of yeast have discharged my body as if i used monistat or something, and i'm wondering is this a sign of the infection leaving or is it worsening?

    • ANSWER:
      Eating yogurt will NOT cure your yeast infection. Sorry.

      Some crazy hippie radicals who are opposed to medicine and chemicals say that if you take a tampon and submerge it in plain yogurt and then stick it up the vagina that it will cure it. You have to do this like 3x a day and leave the tampon in while laying down for like a half hour or something.

      I'd rather just take the pill or use monistat.

      The clumps of discharge you're seeing is from the yeast infection. Not from eating yogurt. Go out and take the night time one dose monistat.

  44. QUESTION:
    Can plain yogurt cure yeast infection even though there is natural sugar in it?
    i bought plain yogurt at the store to cure a yeast infection. i have read it has to be plain and not have sugar in it. i checked the ingredients. plain organic yogurt with live and active cultures are the only ingredients there is no added sugar. but it says it has 7 grams of sugar in each serving. will this still cure a yeast infection?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes this will work, i have done this home remadie while at uni as i was too poor to aford the real stuff
      What u have2 do is put it n the end of a tampon and insert it for hal a hour, leave it and then do it again for anltehr half hour, give it a day or so and it will b very messy so u will need 2 wear a sanitory towel./ panty liner.

  45. QUESTION:
    How long do I need to wait before having sex after taking diflucan to cure yeast infection?
    I'm suffering from a yeast infection, I've tried to treat it with the over the counter monistat, it relieved most of the symptoms but they came back a few days later. My doctor prescribed me the one dose of diflucan, if I take it today how long will it take to cure my yeast infection? and how long should I wait before having sex?

    • ANSWER:
      Diflucan takes about 2 days for you to feel releif, and you should be cured by the day 3.

      From personal experience, I would advise you to wait until day 5 (after taking the pill) before sex.

  46. QUESTION:
    Is There really a way to cure Yeast infection naturally, at home?
    Found some information on the web about how to cure yeast infection at home naturally, what is the best way and does it work?

    • ANSWER:
      Dear Grace, About 2 years ago, I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I have purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before. The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible.

      After doing some research online, I found out about a program called 'natural cure for yeast infection' . Turned out to be a very effective way to cure yeast with only Natural means. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later and I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge. Using your methods, I have kept my chronic yeast infection at bay ever since. No more drugs or OTC’s for me.

      You can read about the treatment and why it works so well on this website: www.natural-yeast-infection-cure.org I would wholeheartedly advise you to do as I did. It Helped me and from what I am able to judge from their site, countless other people.

  47. QUESTION:
    How to apply cream to cure yeast infection?
    i got this cream with an applicator to cure my yeast infection. do i put it in all the way and insert it or what? and i am also pregnant but it was doctor recommended.

    • ANSWER:
      The box will contain illustrated instructions, don't introduce it all the way as you will need to manipulate the plunger.

  48. QUESTION:
    Does taking acidophilus pills help yeast infections?
    I have reoccuring yeast infections a lot. I bought a generic brand of acidophilus pills at Walmart. Does taking one a day help prevent and/or cure yeast infections starting?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, probiotics are essential to try and get rid of candida. Taking probiotics "friendly" bacteria suppresses the growth of potentially harmful bacteria. You can also try a bowel detox. If you find your yeast infections keep occuring, you really need to start the candida diet in combination with probiotics. It's very strict! no sugar, white flour and a lot more no nos lol but it eventually gets rid of the candida overgrowth! ;)

    I've done some research and know that apple cider vinegar helps cure yeast infections but do the tablets work for them as well? because I don't have a bathtub to use the remedy for the apple cider vinegar in a tub.
    if not, then what works?

    • ANSWER:
      Not even a little bit. You've been reading quack info.

      ACV...is...wait for it.....just vinegar. It's nice tossed on a salad but it is of no medicinal value.

    • ANSWER:


Cure Yeast Infection While Pregnant

Written By: admin - Dec• 25•11

A lot of women over the course of their lifetime will develop a yeast infection, in fact I think around 75% is the yearly statistic. However it becomes a bit more serious to get a yeast infection when pregnant because of the following 2 reasons:

- It is harder to cure a yeast infection when you are pregnant
- There is more risk involved as your baby is vulnerable

Let's look at each one of these to assess the risks to both you and your unborn baby:

1.) Why is it more difficult to cure a yeast infection when pregnant?

During pregnancy, your body is putting a lot of its time and resources into keeping your baby healthy and growing inside the womb, this means that other bodily functions are reduced as a result. Once of these functions that is reduced is your immune system and getting a yeast infection during this time will make it much more difficult to cure and get rid of.

It is still possible to quickly cure a yeast infection during pregnancy though, and I will mention this treatment later on. It uses an all-natural approach that helps your body to fight it off quickly. More on this later!
2.) Is there a greater risk?

Yes is the answer, but only because there is a vulnerable baby growing inside you. What this means is that if you leave a yeast infection when pregnant untreated, then in a small number of cases it can enter the bloodstream and travel around the body. When it does this, it can attach itself to internal organs and cause problems here which will have an effect on your overall health and may also impact on your baby's growth and health too.

If left untreated and this should happen, it would be quite serious, especially considering it could have been easily avoided if it was treated when the infection was first noticed.

So, how can I quickly cure a yeast infection when pregnant?

For curing a yeast infection, all-natural solutions are best. This is because drugs and remedies only fight the symptoms and don't actually treat the underlying cause of the infection, so it just comes back again and again and this is no good at all.

Things like sugar in your diet are a key factor for yeast infections, as they live off sugar and thrive on it. Limiting your sugar intake can starve a yeast infection quite quickly and help to kill it off, completely.

There is a fantastic breakthrough natural treatment for yeast infections that is being used by thousands of people all around the world. This amazing treatment costs less than most drugs and remedies and it gets to work at relieving your symptoms almost immediately from day 1. Plus, it will cure your infection completely in just 12 hours, yes just 12 hours flat! And it does all of this 100% naturally and safely so that both you and your baby remain in top health - no wonder it is the most popular yeast infection when pregnant treatment available!

    How To Cure A Yeast Infection While Pregnant?
    I am 6 weeks pregnant today, my vagina has been really irritated and itchy. I bathe daily and don't use anything scented so i don't know how this could have happened. Is there anyway to take care of this with home remedies just until i go to the doctors?
    Also can I have sex with this?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey. Yeast infections happen during pregnancy, you havent done anything to cause it. It is just part of pregnancy. Get a thrush cream from a pharmacy or wait until you see your doctor and ask him, there isn't really a home remedy for this. And yes you can have sex, it isn't contagious. The only problem is it might be a little uncomfortable for you. All the best xx

    im 31 weeks pregnant & think i may have a vaginal yeast infection although i've never had one EVER in my life, i've been reading on the symptoms & it seems to match up with what i'm experiencing & i heard being pregnant increases the risk. I was just wondering if any of you have been through this? & if you have how did u treat it??

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your doc, she will probably prescribe one pill of diflucan to treat it. Eat lots of yogurt, stay away from things with yeast in it (like bread). I had one last month so I hope this helps :)

  3. QUESTION:
    How do you cure a yeast infection while pregnant?

    • ANSWER:
      Make sure your doc knows in advance of using it but OTC yeast infection treatments (Monistat or store brand) (doctors will recommend you use the 7 day kind vs. the 1 or 3 day, the 7 are milder and therefore "safer" for use during pregnancy). Only self-treat if you are SURE it is a yeast infection.

  4. QUESTION:
    how to cure yeast infection while pregnant?

    • ANSWER:
      Monistat is supposed to be okay, but for more info please talk to your doctor and ask him/her for a list of medications that are safe for you to use while pregnant.

  5. QUESTION:
    can you cure a yeast infection while your pregnant?

  6. QUESTION:
    Can you masturbate while your on monistat 7 curing a yeast infection and pregnant at the same time?
    My horny little cousin just called me and asked if something will happen to her baby if she masturbate while she is 8 months preggo and curing a yeast infection at the same time i know it is yucky but its a good question

    • ANSWER:
      It will not do any harm at all as long as she masturbates prior to insertion of the medication. This is because some women do secrete vaginal fluids when they reach orgasm and thus she might expel some of the medication.

      Masturbation and orgasm are actually good for a pregnant mother and baby. It helps relax mom and also any orgasms are felt positively by the baby.

      It's not yucky...just a part of life:)
      Good luck.

  7. QUESTION:

  8. QUESTION:
    Yeast infection while pregnant?
    okay well i think i have a yeast infection.
    i had one a few months ago.
    but i dont think it cured all the way cause it still sometimes itches.
    im pregnant. and lasy time i had my yest infection i wasnt, but i had to put like these big egg like pills up my vagina and put like this itch cream on it.
    now that im pregnant, is it still okay to put the egg like things up there?

    or is there like another kind of like yeast infection cure?
    it ONLY itches.
    it doesnt burn or n e thing.
    thats why i think it didnt like heal all the way from the last one?

    • ANSWER:
      Call your doctor and let them know. Instead of telling you what to use over the phone, they will want you to come in so they can make sure that you do have yeast infection and that it is not something else.

      My doctor told me, depending on how severe the yeast infection is, depends on what medication he or she will recommend. If it is a more severe infection, you will get a prescription. If it is a mild infection, you can use Monistat over the counter, but only the 7 day kind. That way you make sure you completely get rid of the infection, so your baby won't be harmed.

      If I were you, I would definitely go to the doctor, especially since you said you had a yeast infection 2 months ago. You probably never completely got rid of it. Tell your doctor.

  9. QUESTION:
    Curing a yeast infection while pregnant?
    Has anyone used the 3 day treatment before? The 7 day treatment was wayyyy to pricey. So I had to buy the 3 day. I just got done taking medication for a UTI which I think is what caused the yeast infection. Its the equate brand so I could afford that one. I don't wanna hear ask a doctor or anything like that because I don't have a doctor and wont for at least 2 more weeks. I'm 13w2d pregnant. Just wondering if anyone else used the 3 day treatment and was fine.
    It came with 3 things you insert in, and it came with a cream to use 2 times a day on the out side for the itching.
    Sorry I don't have 30 dollars to spend on a treatment like that when I can spend 8 dollars instead. Money is tight. Welcome to the rescission.
    And I've used the 3 day cheap treatments before and they worked fine. Haven't had one in like a year and a half. But now I'm pregnant so I have one. The 3 day cheap ones work just as well.
    I went to Wal-Mart and they only had name brand ones that were WAY to expensive.
    Yes because Im not rich I obviously dont care. I dont have your problems the cheap ones work for me. And its a stupid question why are you answering it with your even more pointless answers?

    • ANSWER:
      Any of which are fine, Monistat, Equate, store brand, they all have that one key ingredient, tioconazole or Miconazole, (If it has the zole at the end, it will work) however my doctor did prescribe me the Monistat 7. I only used like 2 and was fine. However, my doctor did also advise me not to treat my yeast until 14 weeks. It was killer waiting, I had the infect since like 8 wks. I don't really believe it will harm the pregnancy, but this is what I was instructed not to do.

      Besides other comments, my yeast infection was and never really has been bad to where it was dire I take all the doses. Usually mines would heal with only minor help. And no they did not keep reoccuring.

  10. QUESTION:
    How can I cure yeast infection? During pregnacy..?
    I need help how can i cure yeast infection while im pregnant??

  11. QUESTION:
    Is it ok to treat a yeast infection with yogurt while pregnant?
    I am currently pregnant and will be 9 months May 15th. Before I was pregnant I had a couple of yeast infections and treated them with the whole yogurt on the tampon remedy and it helped to cure it, but is it safe to do this while being pregnant? And if not are there any other home remedies that you could do to treat it thats safe for me and my baby?

    • ANSWER:
      I had thrush whilst 8 months pregnant. I phoned my GP and he said it was safe to use a Canestan Pessary which I did. Baby was fine and infection cleared straight away. Speak to your GP.

  12. QUESTION:
    long story short. How do YOU prevent yeast infections while pregnant?
    I would really like to know how other people PREVENT (not cure) yeast infections from happening, epically while pregnant since our hormones are all out of whack.
    Ahh thank you for the personal experience! I use to eat a lot of yogurt and got tired of it =/, I had to take antibiotics for an ear infection which made me have a super bad yeast infection that causes BV, not fun.

    But, I love yogurt, I just got tired of it for a period of a year or so.

    • ANSWER:
      eat yogurt with live cultures (pro-probiotics), it will say on the package that the yogurt contains 'lactobacillus acidophilus' that is the live culture that will help prevent yeast infection. eat about 8oz of this a day to help prevent them. try to avoid yogurts that have alot of sugar, a good one is Dannon Light and Fit in any flavor. i swear by this, it really helps in the prevention of yeast infections. i am on antibiotics everyday while pregnant because i've been getting frequent UTIs, before i started eating the yogurt everyday i was getting yeast infections all the time. since i've been eating the yogurt, i haven't had any yeast infections.

      some other tips for prevention are :
      -wearing cotton underwear
      -avoid tight fitting pants
      -drink lots of water and limit the amount of soda and sugary juices
      -eat a healthy well balanced diet, limiting the amount of cakes and candy you consume
      -wipe front to back when using the bathroom
      -don't use douches
      -avoid using pantliners if you can
      -if you are diabetic, you are more prone to this infection so keep your blood sugars under control.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is it common to have a recurring yeast infection while pregnant?
    I'm 16 weeks pregnant and it seems like i've had a yeast infection on and off from when I first found out I was pregnant. At first they put me on a anti biotic for what they thought was a bladder infection, and then the symptoms turned more towards a yeast infection. So they put me on a cream for that, which helped but didn't totally cure it. It seems like it will go away for a week and then come back the next. Its been tolerable but its starting to get bad again and I dont understand why anything isn't helping it? Could I have given it to my boyfriend & him not know it, and we keep giving it back to each other? (I wasn't aware men could get yeast infections until recently) Do they show symptoms? Or is there any other infection that could cause yeast like symptoms? Or does pregnancy give these kind of symptoms?! I'm so frustrated and worried!! Help!

      id get you and your boyfriend treated as yes you can pass it on i suffered with it all threw my pregnancy and live yoghurt does help

  16. QUESTION:
    For Moms Who Had Yeast Infections While Pregnant, Did Monistat Work?
    almost 39 weeks pregnant and having some bleeding. My midwife has ruled out placental bleeding through a diagnostic sonogram and now thinks the bleeding I am having my be an irritated cervix caused by a yeast infection I have. Anyone else ever have this??
    She is having me start Monistat 3 day Treatment, did that cure your infection? Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Its better to use the monistat 7 day treatment as those work better for yeast infections; the 3 day may relieve some of the symptoms but yeast usually needs to be killed slowly and the 7 day is safer in pregnancy. I used Diflucan which is an oral antibiotic for yeast infections (its a cat C same as monistat and is a one time pill dose) which knocked out my yeast infection. I too was having some bleeding but have not had any since I took the Diflucan. Good luck, they are irritating, get it taken care of.

    • ANSWER:
      well, of course you should always get medical advice. but when i was pregnant, and i had a yeast infection my doctor advised me to the use the over the counter monistat creams, and said it would be fine and safe. but i would call up the clinic if i were you and talk to a nurse, and see what they would advice, they may be able to prescribe you a pill to clear up the infection. good luck.

That is over 5 day ago and I still have grosse, cottage cheese discharge. It isn't as bad and the itching is a little better, but how long does it take? Do I need another cure?

I hope someone can give me some answers, I want to get rid of this!!! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can try the monistat vaginal cream for the exterior part of your vagina, and you can try the 5 day suppositories over night ones with a pad on while you sleep. This tends to help and avoid things like yogurt for a few days. Every pregnant women or women taking antibiotics can go through this its normal.

  25. QUESTION:
    How did I get an STD while pregnant and married but I never ever cheated!!!!?
    I am 36 wks pregnant and went to the dr. because I thought I had a yeast infection but it turned out to be trichomonasis!!! I never cheated on my husband EVER!! He got tested and he was negative but I was positive
    How in the world is that possible? I swear I never cheated and I am 36 wks pregnant!!! I got cured but my mind is still wandering on how I could have gotten it???
    Ive been married for a year and 1 month but we been together for 3 years. I dont know???? Maybe he did cheat??

    • ANSWER:
      Trichomonasis can grow itself and start with you. It doesn't necessarily be passed to you.
      It is a paracidic infection,much like a yeast infection. It is just harder to cure, you need prescription medication and it can be passed on to your baby as well if you don't take care of it before giving birth.

      Edit: OH my, after reading the first couple of answers that you recieved , you would be better off if you Google it so that you don't belive the wrong answers that you are getting.
      Okay...I'm just gonna tell ya, because your answers are so inconsistant, at my last GYN appointment, i was told that i had it. There is no way that I got it from someone, I know that for a fact, I have a severe back injury and unfortunetly have not had a relationship like that in over 2 years, I had 2 appointments in between the last time I had sex and the time that I was diagnosed. So of course my body produced it. I didn't get it from a toilet seat or some of the other strange ways that were listed. MY Body Produced the infection.
      The paricite cannot stay alive outside of the body for more than 30 seconds. Google it, you will find all the answers there!

      So, no more Worries, get ready to have your healthy, happy Baby, Okay!! ~{:D

      Sometimes your body will skip a period because of stress....any kind of stress. Losing 20 lbs. or going off some meds can put stress on your body. Take a pregnancy test to be sure but it is likely that your body is just out of wack and is skipping a period. I have skipped my period before because I put too much stress on my body.

  30. QUESTION:
    18 weeks pregnant with a couple of questions?
    I have another concern about flutters. I was wondering if it is normal that at first i felt little jabs, but not i seem to be feeling a lot of little rumbles. It seems a little strange to me. I am assuming now at 18 weeks the baby its making its way up and is probably at the high of my belly button. I haven't felt a thing while i was sleeping on my stomach last night. Should i easily feel something?

    when i first got pregnant i had a clear leaky discharge that was not a yeast infection. I took a swab at my midwifes and everything. it had went away for awhile but has now returned. My hubby and I where thinking that it is because of the sugar intake, maybe i ate to many sweets at Easter. Have any of you experienced this? What was the cause and how was it cured?

    • ANSWER:
      im 18 weeks prego too. i dont feel regular kicks yet. you really should not be sleeping on your back or stomach at this point. side sleeping is best. you can cut off baby's oxygen supply. discharge in pregnancy is a way of life. ive had many different kinds. its normal.

  31. QUESTION:
    hpv!?!? do i have it!?!?
    okay when i was about 5 months pregnant i had an abnormal pap test and she said i had hpv but i don't think she tested me for hpv cause i was pregnant. i also had a yeast infection so im wondering if that messed up my pap? well anyway a month later another doctor in the office looked at my cervix real close with this light thing(im so sorry i cant remember what the procedure is called) and she said she seen nothing. and my 3rd doctor there said there is a 60% chance that i will have but my body could get rid of it too. how is that possible? is it true? how long does it take?
    ok to the last part i got another pap done 2 weeks ago its been 7 months since i had that last one and my results they sent in the mail came back normal and the next day i got another letter that said pathology consultation report on it and it says no cancer cells were found on ur recent pap. so what all does this mean and do i have the hpv? i don't know anything about it.

    she said i was positive before i even had a colposcopy exam she said i was just after the pap no test just after my results of having abnormal cells

    will i always be contagious?

    she never did the actual test but told me i had it because of cell change but a different doctor said that could be due to the yeast infection that i had and the procedure i would need to get i couldnt do while i was pregnant. he also said with the abnormal pap that i had a 50/50 chance of having hpv! i am very confused on this subject! i was also told my body could cure itself from hpv. anyone know the real answers??? im freaked about it and what about having sexual relations wit someone i really dont want to pass this on to any one else
    plus yes i examined myself but i didnt see anything

    • ANSWER:
      You've got HPV. Don't worry, 70% of sexually active adults get it at some point. And yes, it can leave your body within a couple of years of you contracting it.
      As long as you have it, it will be contagious, but males don't show any symptoms of it. At least the strains that cause cervical dysplasia, which is what you have.
      You'll be fine, don't worry, just keep getting it checked.

Symptoms of Frequent Yeast Infections

It is known that over 70% of women suffer from frequent yeast infections. It is a small problem that can be cured within a couple of days for some women and other women are known to suffer for years from frequent yeast infections. Most women that suffer for years from this infection have never tried to get help from a doctor, nor have they tried a proper home remedy to get rid of their infection.

These are a few of the symptoms of yeast infections.

1. A burning feeling while urinating.
2. Having pain during intercourse.
3. A thick, white looking vaginal discharge that looks like cottage cheese.
4. An uncontrollable burning and itching sensation inside the vagina and around the skin outside the vagina.
5. Swelling of the vulva.

Natural Cures For Frequent Yeast Infections

A vaginal yeast infection can be cures through vaginal insertion or orally. All of these home remedies have been proven to work. Most of the time you can cure yourself in your own home without the need for going to a doctor.

Vinegar

Vinegar is known for its antifungal and antibacterial properties. Fill your tub with warm water and 1 cup of vinegar. You need to soak in the tub for about 25 minutes. When you get out dry the vaginal area thoroughly. You can use any type of vinegar, but the best to use is apple cider vinegar.

Honey

This might be a little uncomfortable in curing frequent yeast infections, but it is known to work miracles. You should take a half a cup of honey and pour it all over the affected areas of your yeast infection. You need to leave the honey there for 25 minutes. After time is up, take a bath in warm water. You need to dry your vagina thoroughly. You need to do this twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. These are just a couple of home remedies to help cure your infection.

When you educate yourself about the proper steps you need to take so that you can deal with your yeast infection and help your body control the fungal overgrowth from the inside out. You will eliminate the pain,humiliation, and annoyance asccociated with this condition and you will feel more in control.

I have tried most products and over the counter medications, all of which seem to work, but, only for a few days. After a few days of bliss, I was back to square 1, itching, discharging, being uncomfortable and embarrassed with my disease. Also, you will feel more healthier, vibrant and energized. You will have better digestion, greater vision, healthier hair, skin and nails.

Having knowledge is power. Apply what you learn and you will be yeast infection free. Please give me two minutes of your time. I have important Yeast Infection Information for you.

    what cures dogs skin yeast infection?
    After some research I think my dog may have a yeast infection on his skin. What's a good cure? Can I feed him or lather him with yogurt? I know yogurt can keep humans yeast at healthy levels.

    • ANSWER:
      I had a dog that had skin yeast infections all it's life. I tried cortisone shots...helped, but no cure. I tried dips...not much help at all. Vet then put her on ketoconizole...that helped greatly and she stayed on it til she died this year at 14. I also found out, when she was about 8, that she had thyroid problems that contributed to the yeast infection. So for the last six years of her life she took thyroid pills and ketoconizole. That pretty well kept it under control.

    but i am not very sure it is what it is. Have you seen this on anyone before? It is on my entire body.
    Do you know how i could cure it??? Please any help would be nice.
    One thing, it does not appear on my butt, face, or feet. but everywhere else. My dad says it is mainly where I sweat.
    They also get flaky eventually and can get scratched off. So i don't know. I am so self-conscious and worried now!

    • ANSWER:
      I can't see the pic! But if you believe to have yeast infection here is the only cure for that.

  11. QUESTION:
    Can having a possible yeast infection, prevent you from having your period ?
    Well , that is pretty basic.

    I am 14 and I haven't and my period yet, and i get discharge thats slightly brown when it dries.
    I also have another question...

    Is there a way to check and possibly cure a yeast infection with, without going to a doctor, because I am really scared.
    And i also have this a saggy piece of skin on my clitoris, what could that be ?

    • ANSWER:
      The brown discharge is your period darling. You're still young and so sometimes it isn't heavy. Don't worry about that, it's totally normal.

      The signs and symptoms for a yeast infection is white discharge, bad smell, itchiness, and burning sensation. Keep in mind that all the signs are not necessarily present at the same time. To feel better you can get drugs at the pharmacy (either table or cream). If you don't want to get drugs from the pharmacy, on a tampon you can apply for lubricant with a few drops of tea tree, then insert the tampon and keep it in overnight. It will not cure it, but help reduce the symptoms. Keep in mind that yeast infection comes from a bacteria naturally present in your vagina but due to some factors (i.e. sickness, antibiotics, fatigue, etc..) the bacteria multiples and then you have an infection. Try to wipe front to back, wash your hand before and after going to the bathroom, and keep your genital clean. Also you shouldn't be scared to talk to a doctor about it. Find a nice female doctor, tell her that you are scared and everything will be fine. Besides, it's better to check it because it may be something else than a yeast infection and you want to know so you can get the adequate treatment.

      The saggy piece of of skin on your clitoris is most likely to be your inner lip.

  12. 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.

  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:
    Cure to Dachshund's Skin Infection?
    My eight year old male dachshund has had a raging skin infection for the past year. We thought it was yeast, so we gave him medicated shampoo and cream for "female yeast infections". (The vet said to use medicated shampoo). Nothing is helping, and it's never been this bad before. It's not mange, because it's just on his body where dogs get less fur (underbelly, armpits? haha :) and by the thighs). What could it be? He's been to the vet, they just said it's a skin infection and to use medicate4d shampoo. Didn't work. I'm getting upset. The rash flakes off when scratched, and he is constantly picking and rubbing and licking it (also very annoying). Please, any suggestions? I don;t want him to keep on suffering like this. :'(
    It looks like elephant skin! The rash is gray and wrinkly. D:

    • ANSWER:
      A skin infection is going to be either bacterial or fungal/yeast. A vet will usually prescribe a medication as well as medicated baths. If your dog has been having a problem for over a year then I think he may need something more than just baths. Maybe try a new vet that is willing to get to the bottom of this. Once on the proper medication it shouldn't take more than a few months to clear up. It sounds more like a fungal infection because of the graying skin but only a vet will be able to find out for sure. Ask for a culture otherwise they are just guessing what medication will work. Whether it is bacterial or fungal bathing is a good idea. And your bathing methods can definitely speed up the healing process. Here is what I did for my dog who had a very bad all over bacterial skin infection. Along with antibiotics I bathed her at least once a week. Her infection was pretty bad and had a lot of crusty stuff on the skin. First I bathed with Selsun Blue. This helps all the dead skin a crusty stuff to fall off and that allows the medicated shampoo to get to the infection better. If your dogs skin doesn't have any crusty stuff then you can skip this step. After the Selsun Blue rinse and apply the medicated shampoo. If you are just using an over the counter one it may not be strong enough or formulated for the right type of infection. A good one that works for both bacterial and fungal is a 4% Chlorhexidine shampoo. You can get if from a vet or you can order it on Amazon.com. Let the shampoo sit on the skin for at least 10 minuets. After that prepare a providone iodine rinse. You can get it at any drug store. Mix some with warm water until it looks like iced tea. Pour over the coat, making sure it reaches all of the infection, and leave it in. Do not rinse. This helps to disinfect the skin and stops the infection from spreading further. The more often you do the bathing the faster your dog will heal. But this should be done along with a medication from your vet. Also do not use any product with oatmeal in it. Oatmeal is a carbohydrate that will feed an infection an cause it to spread even faster. You may also want to work on improving your dogs immune system and ability to fight off the infection. Look into feeding a low carbohydrate grain free food as carbohydrates are sugars that feed fungus and bacterial. Also adding a good probiotic will help crowd out the fungus with good bacterial. Adding raw organic apple cider vinegar to your dogs food is good too. It is antibacterial, antifungal, and boosts the immune system. And adding fish oil will improve the overall health of your dog's skin. And healthier skin can fight an infection much better. The more effort you put into getting your dog healthy the faster he will recover. My dog took about 2 months and 2 rounds of antibiotics to recover but I saw huge improvements after the first 2 weeks of treatment.

    • 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:
    Yeast infection of the skin?
    My friend is very large breasted, she has a terrible rash on her lower boobs and under the boob. It is very very red , sometimes it itches and sometimes very sore for her. It also smells terrible. I believe it is a yeast infection. She will not go to the doctor. I suggested gold bond powder but it has not helped. Any home cures for this? I told her to put tissue under her breasts to keep the skin to skin contact minimal and told her to keep it as dry as possible. Thats all I know what to tell her, so any suggestions might help.

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you are dead on. I have suffered with these in the summer from time to time. Keeping the area dry is #1, like you said. She also needs an anti-fungal cream. She can buy this over the counter. Your pharmacist can point out the best one. If that doesn't help then she made need an oral medication like Diflucan. Occasionally creams are not enough and a few days of this medication can clear it right up!

  18. QUESTION:
    Do i have a yeast infection? ways to cure it without meds?
    ok so im only 14 and im a virgin. For the past month i have experienced an unusually itchy sensations ranging from my vagina to my butthole.this also accompanied by a steady yellowish white discharge. earlier on it was very red and dry but that part seems to have gone away but i am still very itchy. i wash it out every day with medium temperature water and gentle dove soap for sensitive skin. Also lately i have used a little anti itch cream down there which does sorta help.do i have a yeast infection? if so i would like to avoid seeing a doctor or using meds like monistat or vagisil so is there anyway that i can get rid of these symptoms on my own?? thank you :)

    • ANSWER:
      It's likely to be a yeast infection. However, I'm afraid that you will need medication because it didn't clear by itself after a few days. You do not have to see a doctor because treatments are available over the counter. For instance, you can opt for a intra-vaginal tablet and cream treatment (metronidazole or clotrimazole) or an oral tablet treatment (fluconazole). My only recommendation is to avoid the 1 or 3-day treatment. However, if it doesn't cure your infection, you'll have to go to the doctor to get something stronger.

      You don't have to be ashamed of anything. A yeast infection can be triggered by random things such as swimming in warm water, wearing pants that are too tight or taking antiobiotics.

  19. QUESTION:
    the doctor perscribe fluconazole for my yeast infection but will this help to clear discoloration of skin?
    I had this bad break out for the longest months and months.. I thought it was a rash on the inside of my butt cheeks under the vagina its discolored like a pale color i thought it was a rash caused by some fragrances it itches and skin use to peel in a grayish color. I went to the doctor today and she told me its fungus / its a yeast infection. I took the pill im suppose to take just one in 24 hours results will began to be shown and by 5 days it should be better. Im more concern not only about the yeast infection with the vagina but also the discoloration how can I cure it?

    • ANSWER:
      No, the pill will not change the color of the skin.
      And, let's hope that your doctor was correct in her diagnosis, because from your description, it does not sound like a yeast infection to me, but rather possibly another condition such as lichen sclerosus et atrophicus.
      However, without seeing the rash, it's not possible for me to tell you exactly what the problem is. If your doctor is correct, the rash will be adequately treated, but any resulting color change will not be corrected. Only "time" will help correct that problem.

  20. QUESTION:
    Can Bepanthen help yeast infections?
    Can Bepanthen prevent/cure/help yeast infections anywhere on the skin?

    • ANSWER:
      According to http://www.ehow.com/about_5072946_bepanthen-good.html
      "Bepanthen is an antiseptic cream... that is designed to cure minor skin irritations" and "The second main ingredient in Bepanthen is benzalkonium chloride, a fast-acting disinfectant that targets several types of common bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and yeasts".

      When you say yeast infection on the skin, are you referring to a specific area (eg. vaginal) or a more generic area like on an arm or leg? If it's more of a vaginal area, topical creams are typically less effective than something that gets deeper into the area (eg. internal options or creams that you squirt into the area).
      With that being said, one of the best things to keep yeast (whether it's on the skin or internally) at bay is Probiotics. Yogurt and Kefir have Probiotics in them, but no where near enough to make a fast impact on Candida that a good Probiotic supplement can so I'd recommend one with 30+ billion viable organisms from several strains to fight the yeast.
      In addition to Probiotics, Caprylic Acid and Grapefruit Seed Extract also help to fight the yeast directly, so those three together are a very good combination to fight the yeast. Good luck and I hope I helped!

  21. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection, severe itch...please help!!!?
    I got a yeast infection about a week ago. I have had a few before so I kno what they are. I was put on antibiotics 3 weeks ago for a UTI, and read that antibiotics gives you yeast infections. Well with this 1 came severe itching and burning. I tried not to scratch but it was so bad I had no choice, the itch medicines were not working. I scratched so bad that I scratched the top layer of skin off in a few spots. They are nasty cuts that are trying to blister up. It burns so bad to pee because of all the open cuts. I cured the yeast infection and the only spots that still itch are the cuts. I have tried Vagisil and it doesn't due nothing. What can I put on the cuts to make them heal faster? Please help...this is the worst thing I have ever had to deal with in my life. Oh and I was tested for all STD's when I went to the dct. for the UTI, and I am clean. So no it's not herpes!

    • ANSWER:
      Hmm, I'm surprised that the Vagisil cream didn't work...

      1. Run a warm (just barely warm, not hot) bath and pour about 1 cup of oatmeal in it. Soak for 20 minutes. The oatmeal will help calm down the skin.

      2. Towel dry, and then run the warm (not hot!) hair dryer on your groin area to make sure it is really dry.

      3. I'd give the vagisil cream another try after you've done both of the above because it really does work for me. I bought the "extra strength" kind, it has a lot more medicine in it.

      4. You can make a paste out of oatmeal and milk and put in on your groin for about 20 minutes and then gently wash it off.

      5. You can also try putting a wrapped ice pack over your groin.

      I hope some of these help you!

  22. 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.

About 2 weeks later yet again i wake up one morning with one vaginal lip swollen...it became very red and itchy...a few days later it seemed like another yeast infection..treated and then had my period and seemed fine..i have just ended my period and my vulva is again red and itchy its somewhat more...wrinkled then usual if that makes any sense but ive never had any at least which i could see...and anypain like the first time since?
    I know sometimes yeast infections can infect the skin but wondering if anyone has had a similar experience?
    I am going to the doctor next week and have my apointment...just bored and curious if anyone else had gone through similar and the outcome...also randomly have run into a few nurses on here with great advice.

    • ANSWER:
      Ok, well from my experience, I can tell you that some women can have recurrent yeast infections or UTIs...I have suffered from both...due to my hormonal changes when I am about get my period. It is normal to be irritated, red and itchy when you get a yeast infection. What I am concerned about it the sore. Next time you get an infection dont treat it yourself, go to your doctor as soon as possible. Record all symptoms and tell your doc about.

  28. QUESTION:
    Do I have a yeast infection?
    I think I have a yeast infection, but not sure. Not to get to graphic, but all around my vaginia, like on the skin, is veryvery itchy and swollen and sore. It's not on the inside though, and that's why I mainly don't think it's a yeast infection. If you know how to cure it , please share. it's driving me crazy, an it itches so much. Please try and give some cures to make it go away from home. I don't wanna go to the doctors, or buy some kind of special medicine. Thanks in advanced!

  29. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of a yeast infection quickly?
    Okay, I'm 11, never had my period before, and I may have a yeast infection. I think I do, I have all the symptoms (cottage cheese-like discharge, red skin on the outer vagina, unusual lumps that may hurt, itchy crotch, burning while urinating), and I'm way too nervous to go to my mom about it. I have a male doctor that I would feel funny going to. I've heard plain yogurt works, and I'll try that if nothing else works. I wanted an answer to something I had heard: is it true that putting honey on your vagina for at least 5 minutes can banish a yeast infection? If it can (or can't), and you have any more suggestions, please tell me, it's really hard going to school with this itchiness, and I know that Chronic yeast infections are nearly impossible to cure.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't start putting honey or yogurt or any other food in your vagina. It's so weird that people perpetuate these notions. I assure you that your mom has had to deal with yeast infections before, it's a perfectly normal (albeit annoying) part of being a woman. You really don't need to feel nervous or embarrassed about talking with her about it. And, at your age, get used to having awkward conversations with mom, since Aunt Flo is coming to visit you in the next couple years anyway. ;)

      Your best bet on your first one is to have it diagnosed for sure first. Again, you're reaching an age where you are going to have to start having a doctor look around down there anyway, so if you're uncomfortable with a man, ask to switch to a woman. No one will be bothered, trust me.

  30. QUESTION:
    Do i have a yeast infection on my testicle?
    Just a couple of days my testicle started to become itchy and i don't know how that happen. Just a day after i decided to see what was going on so when i was taking a shower i pulled back the skin that was covering the head of the penis and what i saw was the skin that was covering the head of the penis, it had rash or blister on parts of it and now it's also dirtier than ever. Since it was just on the skin i didn't worry that much but then a day later my penis was more itchy than ever so i decided to check again and this time it was on my penis too. That's when the real worry comes, i decided to research today to see what type of testicular problem it was and when i found out. IT WAS A YEAST INFECTION >.> At first i thought it was just some allergic reaction from the ramen noodles i've been eating. I didn't eat ramen noodles for a while and i thought my immune system build up an allergic reaction to it ( weird huh?). Anyway, just how do i treat testicle yeast infection? Is it common or something rare to have yeast infection in men? I can't go to the doctor on my own :( i have to wait 3 more years to get a license, and i'm sure ain't gonna talk to my old man about it. He's going to be like what's wrong with you? or like, I've never heard of such things as yeast infection in men. Me and my old man isn't close so i don't ever feel comfortable talking about some personal problem i have. If i just leave my yeast infection i know it can get worse but can it get better? Ever had a yeast infection? what did you do to cure it? nothing? anyway i am really worried because this is the first time in 15 years of my life that i had it and i don't know what to do :( any cure to this beside going to the doc or buying over the counter drug?

  31. QUESTION:
    Yeast or allergies whats the best way to cure dogs balding dark skinned and pink paws?
    paws started off pink with open wounds on back of pasterns of all four feet but especially the front, that were some what itchy from the licking but not that much. the vet first saw this in june and prescribed a antibiotic which healed the open wounds but the area stayed pink. this went on till september when the next vet that saw it thought allergies and preformed a scrape under a microscope. it came back with no histamines but some yeast was found. antibiotics and ketaconizole antifungal was prescribed but within a few days an obvious allergic reaction the the sulfa based antibiotic started. the knuckels of the toes on the top of paw became dark and started to bald which had not been an issue before. The medications were stopped and the allergic reaction subsided but the paws were still pink on the back of pasterns and dark and bald on knuckels and between. The vet then prescribed prednisone to calm the skin and another nonsulfa based antibiotic which then brought the skin back to normal except for the bald dark areas. Not wanting to use prednisone because it only masks the condition it was explained that if the irritation of the paws was controled it may stop the yeast from growing. Within a couple of weeks the paws are back to their original condition with the dark bald areas on the front of the paw. The ketaconizole was started again but no obvious improvement.
    there is no carbohydrates in the raw diet, fish oil is given, tripe, supliments including enzymes and probiotics. Due to the dark skin and balding it seems obvious that at least the front of the toes are effected by yeast. there is no other dogs in the pedigree with allergies. there is some irritation the underside of chest but not the condition of the paws and that only started with the allergic reaction to the antibiotic started. if it were a contact allergy of some sort in the home it seems like the reaction would be over the whole body not only the paws.
    thyroid was checked and results were normal.
    it seems that all vets want to go right to allergies but could this be a yeast infection from former use of antibiotics for several rounds for acne.
    does thornit powder do better for this kind of condition.
    the paws are not itchy like the belly was when the reaction to the antibiotic was started. some licking but not obsessive or constant.
    now using olive leaf extract and cocanut oil and topical cocanut oil for the last few days with no obious improvement yet.
    someone that has been through this before that has had success please reply.
    if it were allergies you would think it wouldnt be so localized and there would be excessive itching. if it were yeast you would think the back of the paws were have the dark skin around the open wounds and what would feed the yeast on a raw diet with no sugars or carbohydrates to feed the yeast.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try changing the dishes to ceramic and also change /rotate the diet/food. It is allergy season and thus the dry itchy skin/paws. This can also be a sign of a parasite making the balding/itchy.
      Wash the pets bedding and hot dry that thoroughly at 130 degrees if it's a parasite such as mites/ticks/bed bugs/fleas/ring worm/round worm.

    spoke with a dermatolgist for an appointment but it is obvious that without seeing them it was probable it was allergies. when a dogs system is acting up due to an allergy or yeast it will cause it to be on the deffensive and cause false positives. another dog of the same breed had an issue with the whole body and the allergy test came back with chicken, it was stopped but an anti yeast treatment was started and now is eating chicken again with no problem.
    thank you fly, the pred was given as directed and after it started back the way it was if not worse. if it is yeast pred only masks the symptoms and they come back, some say, worse than before.
    there is also no obvious sign of significant itching, some licking here and there but no nawing, no reaction when touched like there is discompfort from itching, when the reaction to the antibiotc was there, it was obvious there there was itching from an allergic reaction, for a short period of a couple weeks there was no chicken being fed, turkey instead, and the beef is a once or twice a week tripe and organ mix feeding.

    • ANSWER:
      I've seen allergies before where the dog irritates the skin by scratching, and this irritation then becomes infected with bacteria and yeast. The Prednisone was likely given to you to calm any itching the dog had, which would stop the animal from bothering at his own skin and causing it to become irritated. If your vet doesn't know that you decided against/discontinued the Pred, it'd be a good idea to tell him/her and see about restarting it. (Since Pred can be a tricky drug if you don't follow dosage instructions, talk to your vet before restarting.)

      Chewing at the paws is a pretty common sign of allergy. Seasonal allergies are often triggered by something in the grass, which the dog, obviously, contacts with his paws, so seeing irritation localized there isn't at all uncommon. (On that note, if you use any sort of fertilizer on your lawn, it might be a good idea to discontinue it!) However, even food allergies manifest often with skin symptoms; have you and your vet discussed alternative diets that don't include common allergens like beef and chicken? (As well as things like wheat, but you've mentioned your dog doesn't eat carbs, so no worries there~)

      For yeast control, there are several types of medicated shampoos that can soothe irritation as well as helping with yeast infections. I'd advise trying these out.

      Best of luck!

  33. QUESTION:
    This don't look like any Yeast Infection I ever had, and I have had plenty?
    For the past few wks now, I have had to suffer with itcy skin and these little red splotches that after a few days turn into little red sores. They are not in any kind of patern, just randomly spotted on my chest, belly, back and shoulders. I have already gone thru 2 tubes of Nystantin and it did not cure it.
    has anyone else ever had this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately, there are a variety of yeast infections and each responds differently to medications. What you're describing could be pityrosporum folliculitis which tends to respond best to ketoconazole (oral) or econazole (topical).

      The best way to find out exactly what's going on is to have a doctor either swab the skin or take a small biopsy, test it, then prescribe a medication which can better target the skin problem. Also, keep the area clean and wear clothing that pulls moisture away since sweat can feed into the problem. Avoid powders that contain corn starch as corn starch will feed a fungal infection. Sweat and ingredients in products that feed fungal infections can play a big role in why some infections never seem to heal and continue to cycle.

      Good luck - I hope everything's under control soon!

  34. QUESTION:
    Is it a yeast infection?
    Okay so after i had unprotected sex with a female, a week later i started getting a really and i mean really bad itch around my anus. So this went on for a while i went and got checked for std all came back negative. The lady that checked me suggested i use jock itch cream on my buttocks for about 2 week. Well i did just that and actually went for a month with this cream. After i stopped using it i noticed it came back within a couple days. So i went to a clinic got checked and they said i was fine that i did not have a yeast infection to continue the jock itch cream. Well a month later i devopled a white layer on my tongue along with dry mouth...i was really really stressed on this whole issue so im pretty sure it was from high levels of stress cause i went back to the doctor and they checked my tongue and it was fine, which the doc. then game me a prescription for a med that produces more saliva. I havent gone to get this med because if it is stress then i can get over it on my own just by chewing sugar-less gum should keep the mouth moist. Well as of today my anus is still itchy and now my armpits itch also. When my anus get sweaty it starts itching along with my armpits all at the same time. I started using an anitfungal liquid spray around my anus and armpits as of yesterday. I will try one more time for a whole month before i go in to see a doctor. Well when i put the antifungal spray on my armpits it felt good cold, and the itch went away, but when i put the spray on my anus area it freaken burned. IDK why but it burned for a good 5 mins. Also i put the spray on my penis cause it looks kinda brownish an im a light skin guy and the tip of my penis is colorish every once in a while it itches with no burning while peeing or discharge. So my question is can it be a yeast infection and if it is can i cure it with these antifungal liquid sprays or do i have to go get medicine from the doctor. Any good answers will be really nice. i have been to three doctors and all of them have said that i do not have a yeast infection to just use anitfungal stuff on the areas that itch while there sweaty...i personally think it bull crap i for some reason feel i have a yeast infection. Thankyou for your time ppl!!
    I have been taking two acidophilus pills everyday (two billion units each pill) and garlic pills for more than a month an have had no signs of cure also.
    Also one more question...will the medicine called (diflucan) cure whatever i have...if it does then let me know so i can make an appointment and get this s**t over with already, i dont have money to be wasting with things that aint gonna work...thanks to everyone

    • ANSWER:
      You're right it does sound like a fungal problem, but it could also be bacterial too.

      Firstly, don't use stuff on your anus you wouldn't squirt in your eye or mouth - the tissue there (as you found out) is very sensitive.

      I'd probably approach it in the following way - might sound extreme - but I managed to get rid of chronic tinea from my place after a cousin gave it to me and my housemates

      • Wash your clothes, underwear and towels, sheets and towels and bath mats with an antibacterial and antifungal wash like lysol or add tea-tree oil to the wash.
      • If Lysol isn't available, try some bleach in the water - obviously that will damage the clothes if you use too much.
      • Dry them in sunlight if you can, otherwise a hot dryer for clothes that can stand it.
      • Use dilute bleach to wipe down your bathroom surfaces, toilet, hard (wooden etc) bath mats

      • Get some anti-fungal powder and cream.
      • Trim your fingernails
      • Exfoliate your the skin under the shower rinse it well;
      • Wash with anti fungal soaps like Defense Soap.(Include your hair)
      • Dry yourself properly with a disinfected towel (see above)
      • Use talc, or an antifungal powders to prevent friction and heat build up. You'll also stay dryer with the anti fungal talc powders.
      • Use Antifungal creams on your hands and finger / toenails.
      •Wear loose-fitting cotton underwear, don't wear briefs etc where sweat can stay damp.

      Repeat the antifungal body wash a couple of times over the first week, and again the second week.

      Best of luck.

  35. QUESTION:
    My dog has possible yeast around his mouth, what are the causes of yeast.?
    I have been doing some research and am trying to help my pooch. He was treated before for yeast and I believe that it is reoccurring.

    He has about a 3-inch bye 1/2 inch strip on his bottom lip that has hair loss and is red and dry. I have him on Blue Buffalo Diet Fish and Potato, with no corn, wheat, or soy, but it does have whole ground brown rice as the second ingredient's. I heard grains can be an underlying cause of yeast also. But it does have active ingridients that are found in yogurt that help cure yeast infections.

    What should my next step be, the vet last time just popped him some shampoo, spray, ear cleaner, and meds. But this time it is just around his one top and bottom lip effecting mostly the bottom... he is allergic to perfumes also....
    Complete meat diet?
    Skin scraping?
    Thyroid test?

  36. QUESTION:
    chronic yeast infection?
    Ever since the late fall of 2006 I have had what I can only imagine to be chronic yeast infections. It started as very very painful itching and burning after having sex with my boyfriend at the time, but after many tests, any STDs were ruled out. The only symptoms I have now are those of a yeast infection, yet no medicine seems to be strong enough to cure it! I've thrown out my underwear and bought new ones, I only wash down there with water or Cetephyl (which I was told to use by a gyno b/c it's unscented and good for sensitive skin) and I've seen about 3-4 differenty gynos. Not one can figure out what's going on. Anyone out there who can help??
    Just to add some more details... over the counter medicine like vagisil sometimes helps with the itching, but it won't make the yeast go away. And if i get a prescription filled, it may go away for that month but then it just comes right back. I think the longest i've gone without an outbreak is like 2 months. IF that. It really drives me crazy because I get so much discharge in my underwear, and it gives off an odd odor, and my poor boyfriend..! I just wish he could be with someone with a normal vagina! He's so patient for putting up with this happening all the time...

    • ANSWER:
      Purchase some probiotic pills and take according to directions on the packaging. These good bacteria should be able to concur the yeast overload of that's really what it is. Have you also been tested for bacterial vaginosis? Also if you have unprotected sex with your boyfriend you can be passing it back and forth to each other.

  37. QUESTION:
    Illness with my body (IBS?, Yeast infection?) HELP!!!! Please?
    This is embaressing, even over the internet but i am very worried and need some answers.

    For the last 1 and half i have had bowel problems. I get up in the morning and my stomach will feel tight, then i go to school and i get really gassy and trying to hold it in, my stomach makes farting noises, like indigested food. I did alot of reserch and i think i may have IBS, but im not 100% as i don't have some of the symptoms such as diarrhea although alot of the time i have loose poos (haha)

    Now i thought that would be hard for me to live with if it was true, and i didn't want to go to the doctor about it as i am quite self conscious in a small local area and because if i was diagnosed with IBS, then i couldn't join the Army (which i REALLY want to do)
    But for the last couple of weeks i have realised another problem with myself (this is reaslly embaressing and it scares me) I seem to have dried Sperm on the head of my penis that WON'T come off, it is like a white cover on some areas of my Penis head. I clean it EVERY day but is still wont come off. I also have done research on this and i think i may have a Penile Yeast Infection, i say this because of the symptoms described which i have. Also after my showers i have realised that in the web between my pinky on my hand has an area of seemingly peeling skin that sometimes get's itchy (could this be from the possible yeast infection from my penis?)

    Now upon further research have realised that all of these problems that i have can also be diagnosed with other ilnesses and things and in the last few minutes i have come across "Intestinal Yeast Infection" which i have many of the symptoms from such as the stomach problems and Yeast.

    I understand that i should probably see a doctor about this, but i really dont want to.

    Any help please because i am worried about all of this, the things i mainly want answered are,

    1. What do you think i wrong with me (IBS, Penile Yeast Infection, intestinal Yeast Infectiton.....ETC...)

    2. Any cures or treatments for these (preferably ones that i can get in a shop if possible)

    3. General help and infromation

    This would really help, it seems to myself that i have everything wrong with me, I have done absoloughtly NOTHING to get these problems and nor do i deserve them, they are wrecking my life.
    My main concern is The Penis problem, I will likely go to the doctor for the bowels problem but as i said i would rather not as i know it wouldn't effect me doing a job in the army but it would still be a DQ if i had it on my medical information because i know how strict they are.
    I brought up my bowel problem as i originally thought it was IBS but upon recently having this Penile problem, it may actually be connected with my bowel problem and could be the "Intestinal yeast Infection" that i mentioned.

    • ANSWER:
      If you don't want to go to the doctor now, how on earth are you going to cope with the army, where medical visits are mandatory?

      Your digestive problem could be IBS or it could be Crohn's disease, or it could be colitis, or it could be a poor diet.

      Your genital problem needs seeing to. None of us are doctors, and I'm certainly not going to try and be one on the internet. A doctor is there to help you, and will clear up all your problems.

  39. QUESTION:
    Do I have herpes or yeast infection?
    Ok, so I am wondering if I have genital herpes or intertrigo, a type of yeast infection. I am leaning towards and hoping it is intertrigo. I feel it is the yeast infection because it is a macerated, raw, and scaly like rash that is dry and moist at the same time. It was rather widespread from the top of my underwear line all the way down to the underside of my inner thigh, adjacent to my labia. In the skin fold! I also have urine that appears cloudy at times which I have heard can happen with yeast.

    Anyways, the rash had defined red edges and a lighter color center. I didnt notice blistering but maybe raised skin color areas. I also experienced folliticus on front in pubic area, which is basically ingrown hairs. They can be popped and aren't painful. Ive heard thats from bacteria. My rash only really itches when I touch it from time to time and can hurt when i walk sometimes. The itch isnt in a generalized spot, more like all over. My vulva has been rather itchy too! The itch is predominately in the middle of the night at like 2 am! I have tried anti fungal cream which I have now heard isnt the best thing for it considering intertrigo can be bacterial and moist creams aggravate it. Keeping it dry is supposedly the best thing. The anti fungal cream helped relieve itch but didnt cure it. I dealt with this rash as though it was intertrigo hoping it isnt herpes.

    I developed this rash 2 weeks after having unprotected sex. I had been sleeping with him for 1 month and everything was fine, no signs of anything before. He told me he wasnt having sex with anyone else but with guys who knows. I had the rash for 4 weeks and it seemed to eventually clear up on its own. I tried to avoid eating yeast products when possible and loose clothes and only cotton underwear. The rash was moist and glossy and seemed to leave wet spots in my underwear which seemed yellowish.

    The reason I worry is because a few days before the rash cleared I developed 2 PAINLESS ulcers on the UPPER OUTER left side of my labia. I could touch them and they dont hurt. They look like little canker sores. Also I developed two cuts, or fissures as they call them on my upper outer labia. I have reseached and sites have said these are both common with herpes and intertrigo so im concerned. They occur from trauma to the area which could be from me scratching. Anyways I had no discharge besides normal clear to white WATERY discharge that I feel I have always gotten. Nothing thick or cottage cheese like.

    Anyways my rash cleared over a month ago and my vulva is still itchy at times and sometimes where the rash was. I have looked at pictures of both herpes and intertrigo and I get worried. The ulcers are the part that scare me but there was only 2 and they didnt hurt to touch and NOTHING, not the rash or these ulcers were near my vagina or anus or inner labia. SOMEONE PLSSS help! I am making an appointment to see my doctor but there is no rash at this point. I know I shouldve went back when I had it but I am just so nervous! Please give me your honest opinion on what you think it could be! Once again a widespread rash with raised red edges in my left skin fold. ONLY LEFT SKIN FOLD NOT RIGHT (although further into the weeks I felt like it looked like it may be trying to spread to the right but didnt! THANKSSS SO MUCH! serious answers only are greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think it's herpes, but it could be another STD. It could also be another infection completely.

      That being said, no matter what this is, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

  40. QUESTION:
    Is this a yeast infection or just irritation?
    I was in the hospital for 8 days, and while I was there I was giving these soapy little napkins to clean myself with while I was in the bathroom. It was these little scented wipes that were also used to bathe myself while on strict bedrest.

    After about 2 days of being discharged, Ive been noticing my labia on the left side is kind of swollen, and my clitoris is really itchy.. also my scent down there has changed, and still smells like those personal cleaning wipes they gave me.

    What I was curious of is how do I tell the difference if Ive contracted a yeast infection (im taking omoxycillan and doxycycline) or if I'm still experiencing irritation from the wipes?

    Also, the skin in the crick of my legs (where the underwear go) is also where they cleaned me with those wipes, and its just so painful, raw and red. Any advice on how to comfort/cure that?

    Im not certain I was allergic to the wipes, I'm only effected in that area, but not on my arms or legs where I was also washed. O_o

    • ANSWER:
      I think its just an irritation. if your discharge does not smell ``funny`` like fish or something like that and you have no discomfort inside, it`s just an irritation. you should see a doctor to be sure and give you something to feel better....

    So for the past three days I've had a really itchy rash between my vagina and butthole, the skin is inflamed, irritated, red and has tiny little bumps on it. It burns a little bit too, but only when the area is a little bit moist.

    Is this a yeast infection? Idk what this is! And this rash has been driving me craazzyy.

    Lately, and not to sound gross, I've been studying for school and finals and I haven't gotten around to doing laundry and I wore the same pair of leggings without underwear for like 5 days straight. And wore the same tight black pantyhoses without underwear a couple nights in a row without washing them.

    What is this and how do I cure it??

    Idk what this is....Yeast infection? Warts?

    Please help, I have no idea what this is.?
    Months ago my gyno told me I have hpv she said it is neutral and she didnt know if it was the wart type or the cancer type, she said it would probably cure itself, my next check up, same thing. No nothing. Two days ago I had sex twice the first time without a condom and the second time with a condom. Yesterday I was sore but figured it was because the sex was rough. Today it still hurts! I got home, got a mirror and looked at my cervix and saw this white stuff, it looked like baby powder on the outside of my cervix in the cracks, but then it looked like it was coming out of my vagina, so I took a shower and tried to get it off, got out, it was still there, I took a wet q-tip to try and take it off, it doesn't come off! I looked closer with the mirror and saw two wart looking bumps on the outside of my cervix....I freaked out, called my mom in the bathroom and showed her, she said it looks like warts but that you can have warts removed...Im calling monday to make a gyno appointment but I probably cant even get in for another 3 weeks. It doesnt burn, my crotch feels like somebody hit it with a baseball bat though!....I looked online I can't find any picture similar to what it looks like. The warts or bumps or whatever they are, are the same pink color as my skin down there. I'm freaking out. If they are warts from HPV, are they treatable? Can you have them frozen off or are they permanent, I know herpes is permanent, Im not in enough pain for it to be herpes, my mom is a nurse and she thinks its regular genital warts, but then what the hell is the white stuff? it's like chalk looking. Please help.....

    Also, could it be a yeast infection? Never had one but I looked a picture up online and it had bumps too.

    • ANSWER:
      Good thing your mother's a nurse! I think you should avoid sex altogether (sorry!), until you get to the doctor and get to the bottom of the problem. Sex will only aggravate whatever's wrong. Tell your boyfriend he needs to be patient!

  43. QUESTION:
    Not sure if I have a vaginal infection?
    I'm not sure whether I have an infection or not and I've spent so much money on medical related issues lately I'm trying to find an over the counter cure if possible....My clitoris seems to be a little inflamed and I have dry red skin around my vagina...Some other sites said this might be a yeast infection, although I don't have painful urination or chunky discharge so I don't know what it is. I'm not sure whether to buy an over-the-counter yeast infection medicine and hope that clears everything up or what?

  45. QUESTION:
    Yeast Infection - Never the same anymore.?
    Ever since I had my first yeast infection things have felt different.

    I went to my OBGYN and he gave me a prescription for vaginal cream and a 1 time pill to use, but I feel like it never went away and he never told me it was a yeast infection specifically. I had a very expensive pap smear done and because of travel I never got to pick up my results or extend further testing, but they never contacted me so I assume there was no emergency to give the results.
    I had itching, discomfort, and discharge (I think?) that is very light tannish and in the form of beads of dead skin (if you have ever been to a public bath house and had your skin scrubbed you know what I mean) that you can squish between your fingers and it leaves a dry feeling (I'm very very very sorry for the graphic there, but I'm wondering if this is what people mean when they say your discharge can be described as cottage cheese but I see cottage cheese as wet and chunky mashed together which isn't what I picture).
    I bought another brand of vaginal cream because some people suggested trying another company's. That didn't help either and I made sure I followed the directions and took it consistently.
    My discharge still hasn't gone away or the itching and there still is no odor. It is embarrassing because I've recently become sexually active and I don't know if it is safe to have sex or not even with protection in fear that it might spread.
    I read something about how the yeast can become resistant to certain ingredients and can't be cured and I also took the new test that vagasil came out with to test your PH level and it said my PH was normal.
    Should I just keep trying on different types of creams?
    Oh, and I'm not a dirty person either and don't douche just use natural water and dry.

    This problem is driving me crazy does anyone have any suggestions or helpful information?

    • ANSWER:
      I would make an appointment with your OB. Remember to have a list of questions ready and never leave the clinic with out all the info you need!

  46. QUESTION:
    Type of specialist to see about systemic yeast/fungal infection?
    This past year I've had sick breath, a coated tongue, mouth sores and a burning throat that has only been cured by repeated courses of swishing and swallowing the anti-fungal Nystatin. Similarly I've had to use ketoconazole cream on my privates and various other parts of my body that break out in these bright burning or itchy rashes. They disappear after about a week of treatment and I've continued treatment for up to a month each time. However, after about two weeks of being off the meds all the symptoms come right back. Now my skin is starting to break out in red spots all over my face as well, the likes of which I've never seen.

    My GP ran bloodwork and couldn't find any signs of a systemic yeast or fungal infection but I *seem* to have all the signs of it. They also checked for diabetes as chronic yeast infections are seen as a common precursor to that.

    This is getting out of control and I'm worried about the side effects of taking these meds repeatedly. What would be the best specialist to go see about what might *really* be going on with my body?

  47. QUESTION:
    Can elephant skin on dogs be cured?
    Our dog has suffered from yeast infections for several years. After spending hundreds of dollars and going to the vet countless times, I have finally been able to get his itching under control. However, he now has bare patches of skin and thick, ugly skin that the vet says is "elephant skin". I don't need to know how to stop the itching. All I need to know is is there a way to get rid of the thick ugly skin or will he have that for the rest of his life? My vet has been able to provide any suggestions/treatments.

    • ANSWER:
      Talk to your vet about prescribing a systemic anti-fungal. My yeast infected dog is on ketoconizole. It does work quite well for her. Much of her elephant hide has started to become normal and the skin is growing hair. She also gets a fish oil capsule daily. and is fed a diet with very little grain. Make sure that your dog's thyroid is normal. In order for the elephant hide to be decreased, the yeast in the skin has to be killed and prevented from coming back. Liver issues can be a problem when using ketoconizole so blood work needs to be run often to check for that potential side effect.

  48. QUESTION:
    Is there another way for me to get rid of a yeast infection besides circumcision?
    It is sad, and humiliating for me to talk about this, but I am 16 years old, and my parents never taught me that I should pull my skin back and wash my penis. I found this out on my own about a year ago. It was unfortunately too late. When the doctor pulled it up, it was full of fungus, the same fungus from the result of athlete's foot, or jock itch. He gave me a cream to make it better, but it didn't cure me. When i pull it up to wash it, it smells like dead fish. It doesn't look that bad anymore, but irritation is still obvious, and it just doesn't go away. The doctor said the only way is if i get a circumcision. Is there another way to go about this? Antibiotics? anything besides circumcision?

    • ANSWER:
      You need to find a doctor who is more sympathetic and respectful of your body. Are you sure that it is a yeast infection, and not just really inflamed? It may just take a while to settle down naturally. If you are sure it is a yeast infection then men can take Diflucon to treat it, But you should see a doctor (preferably one who doesn't want to cut parts off of you) first. Circumcised men can still get yeast infections.

      Edit: anti-biotics are notorious for causing yeast infections, They kill off the good bacteria and allow the yeast (a fungus) to flourish. So I wouldn't try and cure it with and antio-biotic, you need an anti-fungal.

  49. QUESTION:
    Sore Throat - Viral Infection? What are symptoms? (WOMEN ONLY!)?
    Ok, I have had a sore throat for the past 2 - 3 weeks.

    I finally went to Kaiser after a week and a half. The PA walked in, immediately deemed it to be strep throat, and she took a swab culture and left.

    She prescribed me amoxicllian. I went on a trip for 5 days. Upon returning, I realized that my throat was still at the same level of intensity pain, that I had a yeast infection, an ear that hurt (felt like an ear infection), and a skin rash on my face.

    I went back to Kaiser (Finally getting an MD doctor in urgent care). The swab culture was negative for streptococcus. He looked down my throat and said I had a viral infection. When I probed to find out which viral infection, no real response was given. He said it would take about one week to cure. However, in total, it has already been 3 weeks... which doesn't make sense.

    Viral infections are different than strep b/c, bacterial infections (such as strep) can be fought off with antibiotics. However, viral infections must go away by themselves through a body's immune system. Therefore, the doc perscribed me something for my yeast infection, for my ear, and tylenol with codeine to alleviate the pain.

    Problem is... It has been 5 days. I have simply slept the entire time, or done small chores like go to the postal office. What should I do now? Go back to the doctor? Give it more time?

    Are there any remidies that anyone knows? Or possible tactics to alleviate the pain? Or cause the immune system to work faster?

    It sucks not being able to digest food or taste it.

    -Concerned!

    • ANSWER:
      Strep can be both bacterial or viral, so the antibiotics were probably more of a preventative treatment to cover you just in case. The yeast is a very common problem to have with almost all other antibiotics from the penicillin family. With a viral you almost always are given some form of antibiotics to cover the rest of the body while your immune system is working so hard on the virus. This is unusual for you to be having an ear infection and a rash on your face. I suggest with the added problems you're having to go back and get another evaluation. Try a different doctor, but make sure you give them all the details so that you don't end up with another problem on top of everything else. Good luck with this most unusual problem, and God Bless
