How to Cure Yeast
The one thing to remember about treating yeast infections is
that if you are having a sexual relationship both of you may
need to be treated, otherwise you could keep reinfecting each
other and you will never get rid of the yeast infection.
There are many different choices for curing yeast
Over the Counter Medications
Over the counter yeast infection cures include tablets,
creams, sprays and powders like Canesten, Monistat, Lotrimin,
Lamisil and Micatin.
Most of these brands have different ranges to suit the type
of yeast infection and different options of treatment. For
example, Canesten and Monistat vaginal thrush medications come
in creams, tablets or combination packs, which are vaginal
pessaries or “ovules” backed up an external vaginal cream.
These combination packs also come in different strengths – a
strong 1 day treatment, a 3 day treatment and a more mild 7 day
Whatever type of treatment for yeast infection you use, you
should not expect the infection to clear up over night and it
can take up to seven days to actually disappear.
Canesten recommends that you use some type of treatment for
2 weeks after the visible symptoms have gone to prevent
The best thing about over the counter meds is that you do not
need to visit your doctor and their antifungal ingredients make
them effective in treating yeast infections.
They are best for people who have been diagnosed with yeast
infections before and who know the symptoms. Men do not need a
specific “male” treatment for yeast infection, as female
candidiasis treatments will work just as well for male yeast
Diflucan (fluconazole), a broad spectrum drug, and Nizoral
(ketaconazole), a very strong drug, are commonly prescribed for
candidiasis treatment. Both need to be prescribed by your
doctor if over the counter treatments are not effective.
Diflucan is a strong antifungal so your doctor may only need to
prescribe one single oral dose of it.
However, as with all strong medication, there may be side
effects (diarrhea, dizziness, headache, fatigue, skin rash
etc.) and you should inform your doctor of any other treatment
or medication that you are using because some drug combinations
can be dangerous.
Nizoral tablets are usually taken once daily for as long as
your doctor recommends.
There are a whole host of natural remedies you can use as a
treatment for yeast infection. We have several pages dedicated
to just this subject.
Probably the two most popular natural treatments for
candidiasis are garlic and yogurt. You can read about them in
detail on our home remedies for yeast

Treatment to ease
Creams like Vagisil can be used to alleviate any itching or
burning associated with the infection, while you are using
yeast infection cures.
When you have suffered with one yeast infection, you sure do
not want to go through it again, so use the following tips to
prevent future yeast infections:
- Wear loose fitting, cotton underwear – Avoid synthetic
fabrics, like Lycra or nylon, that make you sweat. Men
should wear boxer shorts, rather than tight briefs.
- Dry yourself thoroughly after a bath or shower – Pay
particular attention to any creases or folds in the skin
where moisture can get trapped.
- Remove damp swimsuits and clothes as soon as you
- Use mild, hypo-allergenic shower gels or bath products
– Just wash the genitals with warm water and avoid
- Wipe front to back when you go to the toilet.
- Eat one natural or “live” yogurt a day – Research
suggests that eating 8 ounces of yogurt containing
lactobacillus acidophilus can significantly reduce the risk
of yeast infections.
- Avoid douching.
- Don't wear underwear or pajama bottoms at night – Let
air get to your genital area.
Using these simple measures can cut your risk of having
repeat yeast infections.
I hope one of the treatment for yeast infection listed above
will help you get rid of your candidiasis.
