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?
