These vaginal yeast infection remedies can be used for instant relief from vaginal yeast infection symptoms. You will get some relief from the pain, burning, and constant itching associated with these womens yeast infections.
They are not meant to treat the infection by itself, although
some of you will choose to do so, but to be used as a compliment to
treating your vaginal yeast infection from the inside.It works much faster if you do treat the inside and outside at the same time.
Be sure to follow the directions for your type of infection found at the bottom of the Women's page. The reason for that is, candida yeast first populates the vagina in the multi-cellular form. It then sends out little tree like roots or legs and penetrates your skin where it establishes itself. Once under the skin it can hide from things you use on the outside. It also can hide from Diflucan or other anti-fungal drugs if you are not on them long enough. Once the drug is gone in 3 days, it reasserts itself.
Then, if the food supply is good, it begins to reproduce spores. These spores are what gives you an active vaginal yeast infection and allow it to spread even further.
So it is important to kill the candida yeast from the inside and you can use these vaginal yeast infection remedies to kill it from the outside, while getting some relief from the symptoms. This two pronged approach is very effective.
Vaginal Yeast Infection Remedies You Can Use For This Approach
Coconut oil has been proven to explode the nucleus of the candida yeast cell in laboratory testing. The active ingredients in the oil are lauric acid and caprylic acid. Caprylic acid works the quickest but lauric acid, although it worked slower, was the more effective killing agent. You can melt coconut oil in warm water and douche with it, or apply it directly. Many women will use coconut oil for a personal lubricant to prevent yeast infections caused by sex.
You can also use the coconut oil as a vaginal yeast infection remedy like Ion did by following her directions below.
Yes.... please do share my story. (The rest of Ion's story is in red about 3/4's of the way down the page) I really hope it helps someone. As long as we're sharing, perhaps this will help the ladies out here.
While I was treating myself, I devised a way to use coconut oil as a suppository. How do you use coconut oil as a suppository you ask?
Like this: Get some plastic wrap, and cut it into about 5x5 inch squares. Now, if you do this during the summer months, you may have to put the oil in the fridge to harden it up, but I was doing it during the winter, so it was fine. Anyway, scoop out a dollop of the oil and put it on a plastic square. Then fold over one of the sides, and start sort of forming the oil into a bullet shape, gently rolling it on the counter until it's rolled up in the plastic. Obviously it's not an exact science, but then you put these little oil bullets in the freezer. Every night before bed, insert one.
Now, you must use these right before you lie down in bed. Don't insert one and then go wash the dishes, because it starts melting and will leak out. Ladies will have to wear some sort of pad protection over night because it will leak out a bit, and you will see some the next morning when you go to the bathroom. Not to worry, most of the oil has been in there all night working it's magic.
Also for me, the itchy discomfort was exacerbated every month by my menstrual cycle. At first I wasn't using the oil bullets during my cycle, and I'm not sure why....maybe I thought it was too messy. However, I soon realized this was silly, and started using them right through my periods. I cannot tell you how much that helped. The oil made my periods comfortable and normal feeling again.
The other thing that helped me externally was aloe vera gel. The purest kind you can find. Now, everyone's level of discomfort is different of course, and women may have to apply it several times a day, but it definitely bought me several hours of relief during the days I needed it. Well, there it is. If this is of interest to you, please feel free to share it as well.
All the best, and death to the yeast!
If you don't want to make your own coconut oil suppositories? You could use coconut oil capsules instead. The capsules will melt from your body heat and you can use them every night at bedtime. You will need to wear underwear and a pad because once the capsule melts you will get some leakage over night.
Yeastaway is a homeopathic vaginal yeast infection remedy traditionally used for temporary relieve of the symptoms of vaginal yeast infections, such as minor itching, burning and discomfort. The active ingredients are Borax, Calendula officinalis and Hydrastis canadensis. This is a suppository and you should insert one every night as needed.
Potassium sorbate is a food preservative extracted from either the European rowan fruit or blueberries. It has a long history of safety and is found in many supplements to prevent mold growth. It is also used to stop the growth of yeast in the process of making beer, it works almost instantly. Dissolve 2 tbls in some water and douche with it once a day.
Kolorex Intimate Care Cream is made from an ancient plant native to New Zealand that has been extensively studied for its effects against candida albicans. I have reviewed all the studies and can honestly say that this does indeed work.
Monistat is an over the counter vaginal yeast infection remedy that can also be used. This is more of a drug than a natural product but it often works ok.
Boric acid works very well for candida, especially candida glabrata. You can either dissolve this in un-chlorinated water or get the gel caps and use it as a suppository at bedtime.
Some websites suggest putting yogurt directly into the vagina because of the bacteria they contain. In some cases this might work, but in order to not feed the yeast you must use yogurt that has very little if any sugar or you will be feeding the yeast and making it worse.
If your vaginal yeast infection was caused by antibiotics, then I suggest high dose probiotics such as those found here to raise those good bacterial levels back up.
