home remedy that works for me is douching with apple cider vinegar.
I only use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. I usually have a jar with
garlic in it sitting in the bathroom for other itches, and that works
well too. About a tablespoon for a quart of water.
else fails, I call my naturopath and he has suppositories that are
made with tea tree oil and another with acidophilous. You're supposed
to use one one night and the other the next night. I usually just
use the tea tree oil one and that works the first time.
... it is time for me to add to the "gross" category of remedies that
work and are good for you, but you guys out there might want to close
your eyes and cover your ears. Or, if you are brave, share these remedies
with a wife or friend who might be having the problem.
home remedy is for vaginal yeast infections.
to the store and buy a small carton of "plain" yogurt -- doesn't matter
whether it is name brand or store brand or is nonfat, lowfat or wholefat
because you are NOT going to eat it. But make sure it is PLAIN with
NO fruit, NO added sugar (milk sugar listed on the carton doesn't
count of course), and NO flavoring in it of ANY type. You should make
sure that whatever type yogurt you buy has "ACTIVE CULTURES" listed
on its container.
you're at the store pick up a box of tampons to go with the yogurt.
for them. No one will look at you weird and no one will ask for any
ID. ( this #3 is a humorous point only, so laugh .... but do pay!)
curious, aren't you?
home and take one of the tampons and dip it into the yogurt and insert
it into the vagina, allowing it to stay in place for at least an hour
or so -- longer certainly won't hurt you. It is COOL and SOOTHING
for one thing and will get some of the "good bacteria" right where
it is needed the most since that is the main reason to use it -- to
get the "GOOD" bacteria into where there is a build up of too much
"bad" yeast type bacteria.
this for once or twice a day for two or three days, or as long as
needed, until the situation resolves itself.
course, REMEMBER TO KEEP THE CONTAINER OF "MEDICINAL" YOGURT SEPARATE
FROM THE OTHER ONES IN YOUR FRIG THAT YOU MIGHT EAT (and of course
throw out any leftovers). You can more than likely use homemade yogurts

tried this myself a couple of times in the past (even inserting one
at night before I go to bed and leaving till the morning), and it
has worked like a charm.
is also a homeopathic product on the market that you can get over
the counter, I forget the name of it but most drug stores carry it,
but the yogurt seems to work well.
shared this yeast infection remedy with me one time because she was
having a recurring problem with it herself until someone shared it
I was like "WHAT!" But if you get desperate you are willing to try
"unconventional methods." Also I wanted to stay away from all the
prescription stuff and use them only as a last resort. Fortunately,
I never needed anything else after the yogurt!
