You can take an acidophilus supplement or eat yogurt with live cultures everyday. cut down on eating foods high in sugar,as well as yeasty foods,wine, hard cheeses,yeast and white breads. basically you want to change your body's oh balance to a more alkali rather than acidic, and replenish the good bacteria. there are over the counter thing you can get like monistat too. also you may be able to get tea tree oil creams that can help but I dont know exactly how much for you to use.

I try to eat yougurt on a regular basis to keep them at bay. I also make sure I dry off very well after my shower/bath. I will even hit down below with my blow dryer. I have it out anyway to dry my hair. If you already have the infection, you can get over the counter meds like Monistat, but I hate them because they are a mess. I usually call my doc and he calls in a script for Diflucan. It is one oral pill and within 24 hrs I have relief of the symptoms, the itching and burning and by day 3 it is gone. Oh and never set around in a wet bathing suit longer than you have to because I would get them one after the other and did not know why until a nurse asked me if we have a pool and I told her we did. She said well if you are in a damp suit all the time you will keep getting them. Good luck
