Re: Question about a home remedy
A gyno once advised me to buy a douching kit and to mix vinegar and water or i could purchase some solution at the chemist. He never mentioned how many parts vinegar to how many parts water. I'm sure if you search on the net there will be some info there.
Later on, i read on the net that vinegar and water are only to be used during a certain stage of the month, whereas other times you should use mineral water, but not certain if they meant the one with bubbles or the still mineral water. There was a reason for the no vinegar at certain stages and mineral water during others.....think it had something to do with the acidity level in your vaginal area changing according to where your menstrual cycle was at. I'm sure you can research it on the net as i read it a couple of years ago and didn't bookmark the site.
I read a post from somebody on these boards last year about using a mix of water and tea tree and apply it on the outside of the vaginal area. I have seen a tea tree cream for sale which is supposed to calm the itch, burning, pain, etc on the outside of the vaginal area associated with yeast infections etc.
When i went through my worst phase of yeast infections (about 6yrs ago now) i successfuly treated after taking an oral pill to combat the yeast in the stomach, acidophilus powder/pills, multivitamins, a strict diet of no sugar, yeast, alcohol, cafiene, dairy for 3 weeks straight. You need to starve and kill off the yeast in your stomach as just attempting to rid it in the vaginal area doesnt work for a lot of women and it only reoccurs and reoccurs. Best of luck with your treatments.
