  • Yogurt. Eat it of course. I have heard you can apply it directly to the affected area to relieve symptoms, but never tried that because it sounds so wrong.

  • My doctor told me to take a bath with about cup of baking soda in it. Also, I would try the Monistat 3 cream. The fluconazole should give you relief within 24 hours though and is usually the fastest thing out there. I recently had to take it after taking a high dose of antibiotics for a sinus infection and the fluconazole pretty much cleared it up and the Monistat 3 took care of the rest. I haven't tried the baking soda bath yet. Also, like 2autisticsmom said, eat yogurt and lots of it!!! It will help put some good bacteria back into your body.

  • Cultured yogurt. Also I think drinking water with Apple cider vinegar helps...you would have to look that up though. It resets the PH.
