The symptoms of vaginal yeast infection (or Candida) are difficult to ignore: itchiness, thick or curdly white discharge, soreness, rashes on the outer lips of the vagina, and a burning sensation felt especially during urination. Not all women feel all these symptoms but nevertheless, having a yeast infection is more than simply uncomfortable. Here are some simple tips to get rid of and avoid future recurrences of yeast infection.
The most common way of getting rid of yeast infections is over-the-counter lotions, cream or suppositories that are meant to fight the Candida fungi and normalize the vaginal environment. Active anti-fungal ingredients would contain any of the following: nitrate, butoconazole nitrate, clotrimazole, and tioconazole.
In order to prevent the recurrence of yeast infection, it is best to wear loose, breathable clothing like cotton. Many yeast infections are caused by tight, synthetic underwear, stockings, pants, and so on. The skin is unable to breathe in this environment and the heat and moisture trapped inside causes the natural yeast bacteria to multiply into a full-blown infection. The crotch area should always be kept clean and dry. At least once a day, the vaginal area needs to be washed, preferably with soap or feminine wash that does not contain excessive dyes or scents. There are natural douches too. Just mix 1 tbsp vinegar to 1 quart of water and use this for washing the area once a day. Dry completely with a clean, cotton towel before underwear is worn.
A diet filled with good bacteria also ensures that your system is able to combat yeast infection. Yogurt, which contains the probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus that exists naturally in healthy vaginas, kills off excess yeast.
Having a yeast infection is normal and about 75% of women will experience this in their lifetime. As long as you recognize its symptoms and follow the general tips given, it should clear up in no time at all.
