Re: tea tree oil to PREVENT vaginal infections??
I constantly have yeast infections. I have always used Diflucan as it seems to knock out the infection right away, but you are only supposed to take it a couple times per year as it is hard on your liver. So, time for the natural remedy. My last infection was indeed cured by tea tree oil. It is a wonderful natural remedy. It still took as long as a creme, but it did go away finally. It has many uses besides your bath water! It can be added to your shampoo, body lotions, shower gels, conditioners, face soaps, etc. It truely has many, many uses and there are books on it.
For those of you complaining about a fishy odor, you may or may not have an infection. I know as a teenager, I always had a smell too, and I hated it but nothing was wrong. As I got older, the smell went away. When the smell did come back, it was truely an infection - the common one being garnarella for which an antibiotic must be prescribed. Don't go crazy necessarily over a discharge. As long as the discharge itself has no fishy odor and remains the normal color, they usually say it is normal.
Good luck and say Yeah to tea tree oil!!
