If you think you have a yeast infection, start taking a probiotic supplement and go on a candida diet. I take a capsule called Primal Defense. You will be able to knock out the yeast infection without taking any drugs, which sometimes make the problem worse anyway.
If you just try to treat the vaginal infection, it will come back. The real source of the yeast problem is in the intestines.
Also you should know that if you are or have taken antibiotics for any length of time, it leads to these infections because the good bacteria in your intestines gets killed off with the bad. Without replenishing this bacteria properly (as with a probiotic), you end up with Candida/yeast problems. No doctor will ever tell you this, I had to find this out the very hard way over the years. Antibiotics are sometimes necessary, but unfortunately no one tells you that in addition to killing the bad bacteria, they also destroy the good ones that your body needs to function properly.
