Yeast infections plus size womens clothes are common ailments in women because yeast can easily form and multiply in the vaginal are due to moisture, diet or during sexual activity. If you are one of the unlucky few who seem to get repeated yeast infections you may tire of going to the doctor for a check-up and prescription medication. Instead you can use some at home treatments to stop and kill the yeast as well as possibly prevent another back to back yeast infection from occurring. These at home methods are simple, inexpensive and can be done at any time so they should really work for just about anyone.
Although food alone usually won't cure a yeast infection in the later stages it can help one that is just starting or at the very least preventing a new infection from forming. So some changes in your diet might be in order. A lot of these foods can also be used topically for a more immediate response to the problem.
It's one of the best foods for you overall because it has so much calcium, is low in fat and calories and loaded with vitamins. Not only that but it also has a lot of a bacteria called Lactobacillus acidophilus which is a "good bacteria" that fights yeast and kills it. Increasing your yogurt intake on a regular basis can help you fight off future yeast infections.
Not only does it ward off vampires (and anyone who may want to kiss you) but it fights off yeast production as well. Applied directly to the vagina using a tampon it can sting but the garlic will quickly go to work and neutralize everything that's making you itch.
Cranberries and cranberry juice are great for a host of urinary, vaginal and colon related conditions as the acids in the berry work to clear the passageways and promote healthy tissue formation and restructuring.
Apply tea tree oil
Cover a tampon with a light layer of lubricant then dip in tea tree oil. Put the applicator tip back on and insert into the vagina. Pull back the applicator just as you normally would and allow the tea tree oil to absorb into the vaginal canal walls. Tea tree oil has a soothing effect and works to calm down inflammation, reduce redness, soreness and general discomfort.
Apple cider vinegar bath
Fill your bath tub with warm water and pour in a bottle of apple cider vinegar. Sit in the tub for twenty to thirty minutes. The apple cider vinegar is very strong so you can't apply it directly to the sensitive vaginal skin. Thus a slow and reduced solution soaking it in will help produce the same astringent benefits of hydrogen peroxide but in a much more smoothing manner.
