When you get a yeast infection, chances are that you want to get rid of it as soon as possible because of the itching, redness and pain that it causes. However there are reasons to think twice before going to the supermarket to buy creams or going to the doctor, both of which are expensive options.
If you use the medication that is offered in your local stores, chances are that you are having recurrence yeast infections. Before you use any more of your hard-earned cash to purchase these cremes, take a closer look at the labels and you will see that that is – these medications are not cures! They are designed to only provide temporary relief by clearing up the redness and stopping the itching and pain for a period of time, the fungus however is still inside of you.
When take another look at the tube of cream wondering why your yeast infection returned all it does is tell you to consult with a doctor, a very expensive option for the majority of people. If you do decide to visit the doctor in search of relief they will likely prescribe a suppository that contains boric acid as a remedy.
What you need to be aware of is that boric acid not only will cause a burning sensation to the infected tissue, it is also commonly used in roach exterminations and can be harmful to the body. I do not need to tell you that chemicals like that should be anywhere near or inside you.
To cure your yeast infection you must look into natural treatment and the good news is that you can do this in the comfort of your home. There are a number of ways to go about this and unfortunately it can be hard to know just where to start but thanks to the internet there are a lot of natural remedies being promoted:
* Garlic is a popular suggestion because it is an herb with anti-fungal qualities. you can either eat one or more fresh cloves per day or use a whole, peeled garlic clove as a natural suppository.
* Apple Cider Vinegar has been used with water in a low water bath to soak in to help clean the infected environment so that the yeast is not able to grow.
* Tea tree oil contains a potent anti-fungal agent but it is so strong that it is not recommended for vaginal infections. This is best used as a mouthwash with a 5% dilution for oral yeast infections but you must make sure that you do not ingest it, as it is also harmful to your body
