Yeast Infection Remedies

Yeast infections will affect about 70% of women at some point during their lives. Yeast infections of the vagina cause a burning, itching sensation and will produce a substance similar to the color and consistency of cottage cheese. They can be very embarrassing and it’s no doubt they are uncomfortable for those who suffer from them.

Types of things that may cause yeast infections:

  • Drugs
  • Douching
  • Perfumed hygiene spray
  • Pregnancy
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Other medications

There are different kinds of yeast infection remedies and the most popular one that people are aware of are the over-the-counter remedies. While these may work at first, topical products attack the yeast infection from the outside, meaning that they don’t necessarily attack the source and yeast infections may keep occurring. Also, medications or topical treatments may result in the growth of bacteria that is antibiotic resistant, causing even stronger ones to be used.

Medical prescriptions are another type of yeast infection remedies. I really encourage you to use these as a last resort. Medical help should be attempted when nothing else is working. Natural yeast infection remedies should be your go-to cure first. That way you won’t affect the natural ph balance in the vagina in a negative way.

Antibiotics and topical remedies may work for a short time, but the yeast could become immune to them and then a stronger antibiotic will be required to acquire the same results. This is yet another reason why natural remedies should be tried first. Natural cures will get rid of the yeast infection from the inside out, not vice versa – which is how topical creams work.

Natural yeast infection remedies are now available for everyone to try and they are not at all harmful to your health.
