Home Remedy For Yeast
A home remedy for yeast infection can be
effective in treating the symptoms and causes of
candidiasis. An added benefit is that over the counter
drugs and prescription drugs can get pricey while most
home remedies are fairly inexpensive.
A natural cure can also be more mild on your body than some
of the manufactured medications used to treat yeast
Below we will discuss the most popular home treatments for
yeast infection. You may have to experiment a bit to see which
ones work for you. You can also try a combination of home

Remedies for Yeast Infections
Yogurt - This is probably one
of the most popular home methods for treating the itching that
comes along with a yeast infection. It is simple too.
Yogurt contains lactobacillus acidophilus which is a "good"
type of bacteria that you want in your body since it kills
yeast. Since a yeast infection is an overgrowth of yeast, you
want to get rid of some of that yeast (see our what is a yeast
infection page for more detail).
First, for this home remedy for yeast infection the yogurt
needs to be plain yogurt without any additives of
any kind (ie, flavorings, sugar, fruit, etc.).
Also check to make sure the label states there are "live
cultures" or lactobacillus acidophilus in the product.
It can be a bit messy so you may want to put a glove on
first. Simply push some of the yogurt into your vagina and rub
it around the affected area. It should help reduce your itching
Alternatively, you can put some yogurt on a tampon and use
that to cover the affected area. You can wear a sanitary pad to
make sure this method doesn't create a mess.
Some people do leave the tampon in from one to several hours
each day until the infection is gone.
Another home remedy for yeast infection involving yogurt is
to freeze some yogurt in ice cube trays and insert the cubes in
the vagina. Yes, it will be cold but it will probably be a
welcome relief to that burning and itching you can
I have read of people who put some yogurt on a sanitary pad
and wear that during the day. Can be a bit messy but if you
have severe itching, you may want to try this method also.
You can also get the same benefits by using acidophilus
products which are available at health food stores. You should
be able to find acidophilus pills, tablets and liquids. You can
apply them like you would yogurt or you take them orally.
Eating plain yogurt is also said to help with yeast
Garlic - Garlic is another
popular home remedy for yeast infection. And yes, we mean that
nice smelling clove of garlic that you eat. Which, of course,
is one potential drawback - smelling like a clove of garlic.
Not exactly the makings of a best smelling perfume but, hey, if
it works it's worth the price.
Garlic contains some natural antifungal properties that
makes it effective in fighting a yeast infection.
One method for this home treatment for yeast infection is to
peel off the skin of a fresh clove of garlic. Next, wrap the
clove in cheesecloth (or similar material) and insert into the
vagina. You can tie the cheesecloth with string or dental floss
for easy removal or leave some of the cheesecloth hanging out.
Leave it in your vagina for a few hours at a time.
Some people insert the garlic clove directly into the vagina
without any covering. It may make it more difficult to remove
but if you are feeling adventurous, give it a try. At the
worst, you may have to ask someone for help in its removal!
Alternatively, you could get some garlic capsules that are
available at health food stores. At least with this home remedy
for yeast infection, you won't have to worry about the
