  • Buy over the counter MONISAT at least a 3 day dosage. After that if it doesnt go away, call you doctor.

  • If you don't want chemicals, I've heard that sticking garlic up your wooha works. Never tried it though. Yogurt will also relieve the itching. Eating yogurt will also help maintain your regular balance.

  • My best friend hooked me on to putting on a pad and taking just regular yogurt on your private areas. Also you can sit in a warm vinegar bath, just enough to get on that area. Stay as dry as possible. You can also get this pill called AZO Yeast, it helped too. My best friend's mom was all about natural things so she showed up that the yogurt helped cool it off but the sucky part is the mess.

  • Not just ANY yogurt! Strawberry Yoplait won't work! It has to have live cultures in it.

  • also make sure you iron your panty crotch or throw those panties away that you wore during the infection.
