  • To help, eat yogurt everyday, drink plenty of water, use sensitive soaps in the shower, make sure that you keep yourself dry and clean. Don't spend a lot of time in wet bathing suits and make sure that you dry completely after showering. So this in junction with a cream or other over the counter medicine. if the problem persists talk to a dr. about it.

  • You should do a candida diet to get your body back in balance. You can do this on your own, or with the help of a nutritionist; your skin will clear up, too.

  • I take probiotics (basically yogurt but stronger and I dont have to eat yogurt everyday. I dont get yeast infections anymore. Also if I take kills good bacteria too which can give you a yeast infection so I always take proboitics to keep the good in me. Come to think of it...since taking probiotics I havent needed antibiotics again either.
