6 Natural Remedies For Yeast Infection

Margaret Solace

Yeast infection is caused by an overgrowth of the fungus that lives in the vagina, called candida albicans. The infection comes with vaginal irritation, itching and painful thick cheese-like discharge. Most women go through this at least once in their lifetime.

No matter how common it is, it is advisable to treat it as soon as possible. There are over the counter medications for yeast infection but there are also ingredients in your fridge or kitchen that can treat yeast infection.

• Probiotics

These supplements restore balance in the PH level of the vagina and bring everything back to normal.

• Greek Yoghurt

Yoghurt maintains balance and keeps yeast from growing. It is inserted inside the vagina. Make sure you don’t use the sweet yoghurt. Yeast lives on sugar and it will only worsen the case.

• Garlic

Garlic is a good natural remedy for vaginal infections. A vagina suffering from yeast infection is already sore and it burns. Inserting garlic inside will kill the yeast and the skin heals itself.

• Coconut Oil

Not only is coconut oil used for lubrication, but it can also be used to kill yeast and maintain balance.

• Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil kills fungi, bacteria and viruses. It helps to deal with vaginal infection.

• Apple Cider Vinegar

Dilute a warm bath with cider and water. Sit in it for some minutes. It helps with the irritation.
