  • Acidophilus, taken orally AND applied topically. Also, cut out all sugars, beer, yeast breads for a while.

  • ive heard eating yogurt is a great way to cure and prevent the infections. you can use it on a tampon or just eat it, i prefer eating it. same goes for garlic if you can stomach a clove a day. heres a helpful link if you need some more ideas.

  • Natural yeast infection remedies are extremely useful against yeast infection. Many women and men alike are turning to natural remedies for yeast infection because of its health benefit as compared to over-the-counter medications and creams containing clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin, Femizole-7 and others), miconazole (Monistat-Derm, Monistat 7, Monistat Vaginal and others), tioconazole (Vagistat Vaginal), fluconazole (Diflucan) and butoconazole (Femstat 3). Nystatin and amphotericin B are also antifungal agents found in some OTC or prescribed medications.
