  • For an adult? Diflucan if you can get a script for it, or otherwise I use the Monistat Day or Night Ovule one day treatment. I'm sure other things like yogurt and garlic work too, I just have always used meds of some sort, so I KNOW it works... KWIM

  • I eat yogurt. Some people insert plain yogurt but I have not done that yet. You can also buy monostat at the pharmacy

  • For an adult? GARLIC. peel one clove and insert in vagina. Change every 8-12 hours. Works like a charm.

  • Be sure you treat your sexual partner as well. Men carry yeast, but show no symptoms, the lucky bastards...

  • Lots and lots of cranberry juice, cold washcloth if you need to calm the itching.
