Chronic Yeast Infections (Due to Garlic Burns?)

After going on Prednisone, I got a yeast infection. I looked online & saw that garlic inserted in the vagina can help. I made the mistake of nicking the garlic & inserting it in with no cheesecloth everyday for several days. Then I went to the doctor, took Diflucan & got another YI a month later. I went to the doc again, repeat, & here I am with a third YI another month later. My question is, am I getting reoccurring yeast infections from burns inside my vagina from the garlic? If so, will these burns ever heal? How can I help them heal/improve? I'm in normal health & cut my sugars, there is no other reason why I should be getting reoccurring yeast infections. Must be internal damage. And I am scared I won't be able to heal these burns & will keep getting yeast infections over & over. Also, what is a healthy way to reduce the chronic yeast infections themselves without building super yeast in my body from all the medications?

You should try boric acid, I use Yeast Arrest. It is a great product!! I also get chronic YIs and haven't gotten a straight answer as to why from any doctor. But this product helps ward them off and also helps them heal faster too.

Thanks for the advice, I'll have to try that. If I can't make them stop reoccurring at least them going away faster would be great!
