It's probably not a yeast infection. Could be bacterial which requires a dr appt

Can you get to the store for OTC treatments?  I've used miconazole cream without a prescription.


I've heard of putting yogurt or tea tree oil on a tampon and inserting it.  You can also douche with a mixture of 4 teaspoons of vinegar to 1 pint of water to attempt to re-balance the natural pH.

Garlic is said to help.  I'm thinking garlic supplements.

....and to prevent a repeat, change your diet.  Cut back on sugars/starches and alcohol, all of which feed yeast in your body.

This is what I've used in the past with great results.  I've only ever had a couple in my life.  But, it seems like a lifetime between the onset and getting rid of it.  =/  Hope you get rid of it quickly.  I know how miserable it is.

Are you sure its yeast? You can get acidopholous from the store and put it right on the area. But I would recommend going to the doc, can anyone help you out?

I have only had two in my whole life (thank heavens!) but both times I used Monistat and by the next day I already felt better. Hope you get some relief! Lol!
