Since it is nationally female day here in Australia I will write a post dedicated to treating yeast infections. As most women will have to deal with a yeast infection at least one time in there lives. So I wanted to go over the best ways to treat a yeast infection as well as the best remedies to help ease ones suffering.
But before you go out and start self medicating yourself make sure to double check with your personal doctor to make sure you have a yeast infection and it’s not something else.
There are a lot of STI’s out there with very similar symptoms. Sometimes a lot of women think they have a Yeast infection when in fact it is something else.
So its a good idea to know for sure what STI you have before starting a treatment plan. Ok so lets talk about some of the best prevention remedies to stop future yeast infections. One of the best was to prevent a yeast infection is yogurt. Yep good old fashion tasty yogurt can indeed help prevent a yeast infection from occurring,
Yogurt posses something we like to call friendly bacteria. This friendly bacteria helps prevent yeast from overgrowing. So eating some yogurt everyday can greatly reduce your risk of getting a yeast infection. Another great way to prevent an infection is wearing lose clothing. Mainly the underwear and pants area.
Young women love to wear tight clothing and this can increase your chances of getting a yeast infection as tight clothing traps air. Too much trapped air can produce a moister effect making the yeast overgrow and thus a yeast infection can occur. A good way to combat this is to wear cotton panty’s. Cotton panty’s will help let your body breath and release some of that trapped air.
So daily consumption of yogurt and cotton panty’s is a great way to reduce your risk of getting a yeast infection. Now for some great yeast infection treatments. If you have a sever yeast infection a doctor will prescribe some powerful prescription tablets that will help treat and cure a yeast infection. For more milder cases most women use tea tree oil. You can apply this method by grabbing a tampon and douse it with tea tree oil.
It is best to do this at night time before bed and take it out in the morning. There have been study’s that show this can work very well and really ease the symptoms of a yeast infection. All tho some women claim this method is very uncomfortable and they didn’t see or feel any results. If this happens you can stop the tea tree oil method as it’s not working.
Garlic is also another great treatment method, it works just the same as the tea tree oil strategy. Your local drug store will also have tons of creams that work wonders at treating yeast infections. But remember before you start self treating yourself make sure you actually have a yeast infection and not another STI. It’s always best to know what you are dealing with so you can get treated with the proper medication.
