Monistat works well I believe!
UMM….DRNKING LOTS OF H20.
AND USING THE MONISTAT CREAMS OR WIPES ARE EVEN BETTER, THEY ARE SUPER CONVENIENT…AND ARENT MESSY!!!
Monistat, don’t go with the store generic yeast infection medications. Just spend the extra money for peace of mind. Also, to help prevent them, eat lots of PLAIN yogurt.
You need to balance your pH level in your body. Try taking apple cider vinegar everyday. You can douche with it using a cotton ball.
Eat some plain yogurt everyday as well. Make sure it has active bacterial cultures in it though.
Also tea tree oil is great, get a cotton ball, put a few drops and then add some water and 3% hydrogen peroxide to it, douche with that everyday.
One last thing that works great, get a clove of garlic and put a thread through it so you can easily remove it, insert like a tampon and leave in at night while you sleep.
To keep yourself free from future yeast infections you should watch your diet and keep clean. Dont eat too much foods with yeast or sugar.
Fluconazole, known by the brand name Diflucan. It’s a pill and you need a prescription for it, but it works.
To avoid future yeast infections, make sure your “area” is completely dry after a shower before getting dressed. You can use a blow dryer to accomplish this – use the cool setting if it has one and if it doesn’t, use the lowest warm setting and keep it at a good distance and keep it moving so as not to burn the delicate skin in that area. I used to do this, although I don’t anymore. I dry off after my shower and then stay nude while I do my makeup and hair. By the time I’m finished with those things, my nether region is completely dry and ready for me to get dressed.
Also, whenever you’re at home lounging around and when you’re sleeping, wear pajamas or shorts (or whatever you normally wear), but don’t wear underwear. Give your vagina all the time to “breathe” that you can possibly give it.
I know, I know… probably TMI. But I tell you what, following these rules, I haven’t had a yeast infection in over 15 years.
Add: Some of cherry01′s advice is good, however I would not follow any of the advice on douching. All of the things that he/she recommending douching with would burn, burn, burn. Douching of any kind (even with store-bought douche products) is neither necessary nor recommended. Douching actually wreaks havoc with the very delicate balance of good/bad bacteria in the vagina and can actually CAUSE infection and inflammation. Almost all modern gynecologists recommend against douching.
Boric acid is a white, odorless powder or crystalline substance that is available in many over-the-counter pharmaceutical products for topical use, alone as a topical antiseptic, and in suppository form. In one study of 100 women with chronic yeast vaginitis that had failed to respond to treatment with over-the-counter or prescription antifungal medicines, 98% of the women successfully treated their infections with boric acid capsules inserted into the vagina twice per day for two to four weeks.
