Vaginal yeast infection treatment for infections that just won't go away is a little more complicated than recurring or occasional vaginal yeast infections. With this type of womens yeast infection, you will need to determine if there are other health problems that are contributing to the yeast infection.
More than likely, the yeast has become firmly entrenched right below the outer skin layers of the vaginal walls where it can hide from many over the counter and prescription creams. That's why these drugs will only seem to work for a very short time and then the yeast infection returns.
At this point, it is probably safe to say that you also have other symptoms of systemic yeast. The most common will be intestinal problems but you might also have skin or fungal infections of the nails.
If you do have intestinal involvement, which is highly probable then you could simply be re-infecting yourself month after month. It is very easy for yeast to travel from the anus to the vagina because of their close proximity. Anal itching is a very good indication that this is exactly what is happening although this doesn't always occur. If this is what's going on you will need to treat the intestinal infection while using the vaginal yeast infection treatment remedies.
Sometimes these infections are caused by an over growth of acidophilus and are not yeast at all. An over growth of acidophilus makes the vagina too acidic, leading to itching, burning and discharge. Your doctor can run a ph test to see if this is the case while also taking a vaginal swab to check for the presence of yeast.
Yeast has the ability to become resistant to prescription drugs and over the counter creams. These may work initially but if there are underlying problems that are not addressed, they quite often fail to work after a while.
Do you have intestinal yeast?
You can check this page for symptoms of intestinal yeast or take the yeast infection questionnaire to help verify intestinal yeast problems. You could also get stool tested by using one of the stool tests I suggest on this webpage.
Most women however would rather spend their hard earned dollars on treating themselves rather that getting stool tested. If this is you, I would consider doing an intestinal cleanse while treating yourself vaginally with the suggestions on this page.
Do you have a hormone problem?
Out of balance hormones are a big problem or women that suffer from recurring infections that won't go away. Yeast becomes dependent on estrogen so if there is to much, it keeps it alive by feeding it because estrogen controls vaginal sugar levels. If you have this problem it will have to be corrected.
Have you recently been on antibiotics?
Antibiotics also cause yeast infections by killing your good bacteria that keep yeast under control. Depending upon the antibiotic, it can take three months to a year to recover. During your recovery you will have to treat the yeast infections as well.
Is it Cytolytic vaginosis?
Cytolytic vaginosis is also called lactobacillus overgrowth syndrome or Doderlein's cytolysis. It happens when your vagina has to much lactobacillus acidophilus which makes the vagina to acidic. Symptoms are nearly identical to vaginal candidiasis and these women are quite often misdiagnosed.
Could it be Bacterial Vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is most often caused by an over growth of the bacteria gardnerella. But can also be caused by Prevotella, Peptostreptococcus and Bacteroides spp. bacteria. Typical symptoms are a greenish frothy discharge and a very foul fishy smell.
Do you possibly have to much mercury in your body?
I would go over to this page and review the symptoms and how to get tested. There is also a link to the page that explains exactly how to remove mercury safely while treating yourself for yeast at the same time.
If you don't have hormonal problems or to much mercury in your body. Most of the time, if you do the Intestinal cleanse in combination with treating the infection directly with the Yeast Infection Remedies, you can get rid of these infections.
Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment Remedies
The treatment for vaginal yeast infection remedies should be used in conjunction with the intestinal yeast protocol below which kills the yeast from the inside. These remedies kill it from the outside and when combined with those for the inside, very good success rates have been achieved.
Intestinal Yeast Infection Protocol
The intestinal protocol on that webpage is what you should follow if heavy metals are not a problem. At the same time you should also correct any hormone related problems if that is what you have determined to be the original cause of your infection. This is also the protocol to follow if you have determined you also have intestinal yeast. Don't forget to use the Vaginal Yeast Infection Remedies while you follow this protocol.
Pregnancy Yeast Infections
If you are pregnant and have a vaginal yeast infection, I would follow what is on this webpage because it is safe for your baby.

I am almost finished with my first bottle of Biofase and the results have been fantastic. I have had candida issues for about 2 years now. I've tried everything, literally thousands of dollars worth of products and doctors visits. So far enzymes, probiotics, and homeopathy are the only things that have worked for me. These enzymes in particular seem to have given me a huge boost towards recovery. I still have some gas and bloating but I'd say it has been reduced by about 50% or more. I'm hoping the next bottle will make that 100%. I've even been able to eat some sugar without my yeast infection coming back.
Several months ago I was put on a long term antibiotic. I developed multiple yeast infections including recurring oral thrush that would not go away. I was following a modified candida diet, taking probiotics and natural antifungals, and had taken 2 courses of both Diflucan and Nystatin ~ all with little or no improvement. I was about to begin my 3rd round of Nystatin when I tried Biofase. By the 3rd day, I noticed a small patch was beginning to clear on my tongue. Finally!
The sensation of extreme dry mouth went away and it became easier to swallow. Healing and progress continued to be steady and within 3 weeks my tongue was clear. I am a huge believer in Biofase and will continue to take it. As I mentioned, I have only been able to do a modified candida diet - not a strict one (due to other health reasons). Still, Biofase works. Thank you for making this wonderful product!
I have been on the biofase with the 11-strain probiotics for a while
now, maybe 2 years. I had first used it for a bad yeast infection,
which is gone, and I noticed that it has helped me with my rosacea.
I have tried being off the biofase and probiotics and the rosacea would come back on my face. I have tried just the probiotics by itself, and just the biofase by itself. For some reason, the combination of both reduces the rosacea on my face drastically. I will keep using both.
I have to say, I was a little skeptical about trying Biofase at first but after all the yeast symptoms I've been experiencing I had nothing left to lose. The symptoms were taking over my life in the worst ways imaginable. That being said, Biofase has been life changing. Seriously. The first 5-7 days I felt a little sluggish, scratchy throat, and just the slightest bit foggy, but then it was like my energy level returned 10x. It has been months since I could remember feeling this 'normal.' I don't have to tip-toe around my day-to-day routine in fear of GI upset or triggering a yeast infection. These past few weeks have been amazing. I'm so grateful for this product and all the research that has gone into developing it.
Hi Dan -
First, I want to thank you so much for your dedication and efforts with this site. I have spent the past two years attempting to heal my body after a trauma-induced autoimmune thyroid condition.
Initially, I really needed to focus on the acute symptoms but, once I had those under control, with research I realized that I needed to heal my gut and deal with candida overgrowth. I did the recommended colon cleanse and then began the biofase and profase regimen. It wasn't until I started using biofase and profase that I began to notice a reduction in my dermatitis symptoms and the ability to re-introduced inflammatory foods (dairy and gluten).
If I can offer any advice to those pursuing this treatment is to continue with these supplements. It's tempting to think you are 'cured' once you notice a reduction in the concrete symptoms. However, after running out of my initial stock of biofase and profase, I realized that there is still more work to do. I'm grateful, though, that now I know how to treat this and will be ordering more today!
I just wanted to thank you. It's only been 48 hours since I have been taking Biofase. I feel incredible. Such relief. I will be getting more soon. Ty!
I started taking Biofase along with Profase about a month ago. I just got a text from a friend who texted me just to say that I look great. Many people are telling me that. I have had systemic candida for decades and have many symptoms, digestion, elimination, vaginal yeast infections, etc. My elimination is definitely better and constipation and diarrhea are gone. I have more energy, my skin looks fabulous and I am sleeping better.
I tried the herbal antifungals for years and all they did was make me feel horrible. I was told to grin and bear it and get over the hump but the day never came. I have to say that I have not experienced die off symptoms with Biofase.
I am about to finish my first bottle of Biofase and must say I am impressed. I had candida symptoms (both intestinal and vaginal) for approx. 4 months. After following a restricted diet (as you and others recommended), adding Profase and 1 month on Biofase, I am happy to report I am symptom free. However, I am ordering again because I want to make sure all is killed. Thanks for your research and dedication.
