Can you treat a yeast infection on your own?

If caught soon enough it can be treated with proper cleansing and disinfecting the area (vinegar works well) This should be done as soon as any unusual smell is detected, or even as part of a regular hygiene routine to prevent the infection growth. The reality is candida (yeast) is always present and your normal washing and cleansing routines are constantly washing away potential yeast infections before they grow out of control. However; a yeast infection that has imbedded itself into the flesh will require medication as it will be beyond the reach of normal cleansing. Any sign of raw, damaged or inflamed tissue from the infection is likely already in need of medication. Any time you smell anything beyond clean sweat (salt and water); it is usually the growth of yeast (the deepest stink of sweat), and is the first stage of a yeast infection attempting to grow (in the armpits, vagina, or anywhere). These early stages where it is only a smell are easily cleanable with proper hygiene.

It heals by itself or you can get medication at the pharmacy. Just remember that if you are having intercourse you can give it to him too. Answer: If you are unlucky enough to have a recurring yeast infection this can be a sign that the infection has become systemic. This means that the Candida bacteria in your intestines has changed from a yeast form to a fungal form. When this happens root-like structures are grown which can break through the walls of the intestines and get into the blood stream. Yeast, bacteria and partly digested food can then find it's way around the body and can cause infections in our organs. If left untreated, on rare occasions, systemic yeast infection can even be fatal.

How to treat a yeast infection?

First, make sure it is a yeast infection. You can pick up kits to test for common infections. If it is an over production of yeast, an OTC remedy should take care of it (ask a pharmacist if you need assistance). Once it's gone, it's all in maintaining the proper bacteria/yeast ratio. The most common cause of imbalances is the misconception that women must use douches. Plain water works just fine, and doesn't upset the natural balance. Get a shower head on a hose, and forget the chemicals. This is advice given by a female ob/gyn, and I've seen it be truthful for over 30 years. Yeast infections are caused by an overgrowth of Candida, which is a fungus that is normally found on the skin in small amounts. They can be treated with over the counter creams or pills. If the infection does not clear up with over the counter remedies, a doctor may need to prescribe a stronger, prescription medication.
