Effective Yeast Infection Treatment

Understanding Yeast Infections:

A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is a fungal infection caused by an overgrowth of the Candida fungus. It often affects areas such as the vagina, mouth, throat, and skin folds, causing symptoms such as itching, burning, redness, and abnormal discharge.

Over the counter treatment options:

In some cases over-the-counter (OTC) antifungal creams which are easily accessible, can be applied directly to the affected area for effective treatment. They work by eliminating the fungal overgrowth, relieving symptoms and promoting healing.

Natural remedies for yeast infection:

Below are some natural remedies that you can use for the relief of yeast infection symptoms:
1. Yogurt: Apply plain, unsweetened yogurt to restore beneficial bacteria.
2. Garlic: Topical use for its antifungal properties.
3. Tea Tree Oil: Diluted application for relief.
4. Coconut Oil: Soothes itching and irritation.
5. Probiotics: Support a healthy balance.
6. Apple Cider Vinegar: Add to a warm bath for relief.

Prescription Medicine:

In more severe cases, if you have tried over the counter creams without success or if you have recurring infections, our experienced doctors may prescribe stronger antifungal medications in the form of creams, suppositories or tablets. These prescription treatments are very effective in fighting stubborn yeast infections. Consult with our female doctors at 247 GP for effective treatment of a yeast infections.
