  1. Probiotics

Recent studies have shown that introducing a probiotic tablet in the vagina every night, for one week in the beginning, then 3 days during 3 weeks and eventually one time every week, should reduce considerably the yeast infection. This kind of probiotics is also found in yogurt, but despite this, there is no proof that by simply eating yogurt on a daily basis the yeast infection will vanish.

  1. Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil has antifungal properties, therefore, women have tried it and it seems to work effectively. Apply a cotton ball that you have initially soaked in oil on the affected area and leave it rest overnight. The irritation and itchiness should be reduces by the morning. However, we recommend you to be cautious and stop the treatment if you feel uncomfortable.

  1. Anti-fungal drugs

Usually, there is a small percent of women who suffer from chronic yeast infections, which keep coming back. In this sense, it is very important to take some drugs, such as fluconazole once a week for about 6 months. This medicine, has a positive effect and prevents the infection from appearing again and again.

  1. Boric acid

Boric acid has antiseptic and anti fungal properties, being a very good remedy in the fight against normal yeast infection. Place a suppository that contains this ingredient and use it up to 7 days. Never apply the powder directly on the infection as it can worsen it.

  1. Home screening

The vaginal yeast infection is very tricky as its symptoms are very similar to other diseases such as bacterial vaginosis or urinary tract infections. Therefore, in order to be able to take the right medication or follow the correct treatment you should do a vaginal swab and an OTC test, which can establish the pH level and tell you if you have a yeast infection or not. In any case, a visit to the doctor is recommended as well.

  1. Wear cotton

Fungi usually grow when they ‘live’ in a warm and wet environment. In this sense, a very old say, which focuses on wearing cotton underwear comes in front. At the same time, you should also avoid tight clothes and always change your gym equipment when you’re done.  Why? Because you need to let your skin breathe.

  1. Prescribed drugs

There are more severe yeast infections that can only be treated with medication and they require a specialist’s advice. Your doctor can prescribe you 1-3 doses of fluconazole, which is very effective in combatting the disease.

  1. Anti-fungal creams

You can reduce the vaginal infection with creams and suppositories that you can buy in the drugstore. They all have in their composition azoles, very effective anti-fungal elements that have a positive effect if taken on a daily basis during a period of 1-7 days. If the infection is also itchy, then you should opt for a soothing lotion or cream, which should be used up to 7 days. If the irritation is quite serious, you should consult a specialist, who will prescribe you the appropriate medication.

  1. Birth control pills

Among the causes of this skin irritation can also be the intake of birth control pills. In this sense, if one person takes estrogen- based pills, then she should replace them with nonestrogen ones, as they can produce damage at the vaginal level. We recommend you to use a water based lubricant to avoid friction, which in this case can produce pain.
