Skin yeast infection remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Skin yeast infection remedies


Avatar m tn Luckily there are ways for you to diagnose and treat the symptoms and causes of yeast infection through medicine and even natural home remedies. These strategies of obtaining rid of this infection often work during a matter of weeks or perhaps days relying on how severe the conditions are. Most symptoms that occur are gentle redness of the penis and around that area and itching and flaking of the skin. If you notice any of those signs it's most likely a yeast infection that is occurring.

Avatar n tn It typically causes creamy colored sore patches in the mouth. You may also have a sore throat. Genitally, a male yeast infection may cause itching, dry skin, and burning when you pee. Yeast infections usually clear up with topical antifungal treatment. You may think that using condoms or dams for sex can prevent sharing a yeast infection with your partner. However, it's best to delay sex until after treatment has been completed.
Avatar f tn I have a yeast infection I believe I have a red skin rash around me and I itch sum. Its being a pain to go away. Monistat and crap like that just isn't cutting and I haven't gotten ahold of the Dr. I'm trying some natural remedies like garlic I used the gel out of a garlic capsule. Any other advice or things I can try?
Avatar f tn help with my beagle, she,s had been on antibiotics from surgery on leg , she has now developed irritation in skin folds around the vulva and swollen pretty sure its yeast infection/fungal just wondering can I use human products like canestan/clotrimozole cream on that area.. would it hurt her if she licked the cream. I am taking her to the vet on Monday but in the meantime I would like to try ease the discomfort she is constantly licking the area.
Avatar f tn What is ok to take for a yeast infection? I don't go to the Dr. Til Tuesday. I heard the one time fluconazole pill cause birth defects. Don't know how true it is just wanna be safe. Or should I try monistat 7. Im scared to take any kind of pills while pregnant I don't even take Tylenol I use home remedies. Im a ftm & curious.
Avatar n tn and the right nipple still looks crusted sometimes..and other times it doesnt. the obgyn said it was most likely the yeast infection the whole time (candiasis) and since it was untreated for so long it is chronic and its going to take some time for it to properly heal. does this sound normal? should i be concerned? ive never had any discharge, no is a little warm to the touch sometimes but thats about it...oh and the crusted whiteish looking right nipple.
Avatar n tn It begins a few days after my period, and lasts for a week or more. Previous tests by doctors reveal that I have a low level yeast infection, but nothing of concern. however, I am sick of experiencing discomfort, though it is apparently quite minor. I have tried over-the-counter homeopathic remedies, which work temporarily, but hte problem always returns. I am in my twenties, having had one sexual partner for the last few years (no STDs) and no sexual activity for the last few months.
Avatar m tn I drink cranberry/blueberry juice (not the sugary kind) and eat grapefruit when I feel a yeast infection coming on. When I have a yeast infection that has just begun, generally eating half a grapefruit in the morning will get rid of my symptoms and they will not return if I eat grapefruit for the next few days. Try eating grapefruit. Sleep in the nude, or without underwear. Yeast are anaerobes, meaning they do not like oxygen. Get some air circulating!!
1142929 tn?1271626435 About a year ago I thought I had a yeast infection and I used monistat. I had an allergic reaction and the doctor thought it was herpes. She gave me diflucan anyway just in case. A culture and blood test said negative for HSV1 and 2. The diflucan caused me to get a bacterial infection and then the medicine for that caused an actual yeast infection. Since then I have not felt normal. I only have relief when I have my period or for a few days when I have discharge.
Avatar n tn In our area we also have pharmacist compounders that take different things and put them together to make a remedy, they are especially great at things like diaper rash, etc. Also I am not sure about this for yeast infection but I know that Crisco (yes the cooking grease) works well for diaper rashes. NOT the oil but the actual can of white grease. It offers a layer of protection against the diaper and keeps the urine and poop away from their skin.
Avatar n tn should i keep taking amoxicillin even if it cause a yeast infection or should i stop and treat the yeast infection
Avatar n tn Usually when I get a yeast infection I treat it with either monistat or home remedies. They both usually seem to work. I would assume if it was herpes these remedies wouldn't make the symptoms go away. The only reason that I would have to tell someone is because the only person I know with a car is my mother (I live in the city) and she's the only one that can drive me to the doc, unless they would test for herpes in a walk in clinic, which I don't know if they can do that or not.
Avatar n tn If you keep getting yeast infections, you probably have a systemic yeast infection. Garden of Life Fungal Defense is the best yeast detox on the market in my opinion. One bottle is a 2 week detox. Just follow the directions and drinks LOTS of water.
Avatar f tn Im 26 yr old lady who is suffering from chronic vaginal yeast infection since 6 months. I have tried all flucanazole tablets, suppositories etc but i get temporary relief and it comes back! I am in monogamous relation since past 9 years and since 5 months I have abstained from sex but it still comes back.i have tested for other stds and diabetes but negative. I am highly stressed as i read that it could be 1st sign of HIV in women.
Avatar n tn I began taking Yasmin again in June, when I got my first yeast infection. I tried the home remedies ( tons of garlic, yoghurt and cutting out sugars)...and it still didn't go away so I finally took Monistat 3-day...which didn't clear the infection. I went to see my doctor and he perscribed me three 150mg Diflucan, which I took and finally cleared the infection after two weeks ( I had my period in between).
Avatar n tn need to get this out of my head- it sounds like you have more of an infection than herpes...i too am having trouble getting rid of a yeast infection. the diflucan did not work for me, neither did monistat. i have found some relief using terazol cream which is supposed to treat more than one strain of yeast, however mine is not totally gone so i completely know how you feel! i've found that doing everything possible to keep that area dry is helping ease symptoms.
Avatar f tn Hi, I don't know about any home remedies, but you could pick up an over the counter Vagisil screening kit. The kit can indicate whether you have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, or something more serious in which you would need to see the doctor for. As far as the home pregnancy test, I'd try again using first morning urine if you haven't already. Hope this helps until you can get in to see the doctor.
Avatar f tn I rushed down to the std clinic and the doctor scrapped it with a glass thing that you put under those microscopes until the puss/fluid came out and she said they saw yeast in there. I think the yeast has gotten inside my urethra because sometimes after bending down or random movements ill feel like i am about to urinate. Just a quick feeling like i am about to just for a second. Its been happening a lot lately. Is there any remedies i should try to get rid of this?
Avatar m tn After somewhat 3 months in relationship, I noticed that my penis have become red and it had somewhat cracks on the head. I google the symptoms and figured out it is yeast infection. Also i read that you can get it from having sex.
Avatar f tn for the past month and a half, I have been suffering with a yeast infection that won't go away. it first came about from penecillin antibiotic that I took after my wisdom teeth came out. I have been to 2 doctors that have confirmed yeast infections, and been tested for STD's to make sure and they came back negative. My first doctor prescribed me with a terazole (3 night applicator cream) and when that didn't work prescribed me 1 diflucole pill.
Avatar f tn To help prevent them just try to wear really breathable cotton panties and keep the area as dry as possible. yeast grows quickly in warm moist areas... I looked up some home remedies/preventions for yeast infections and this is what it gave me..and they seem kind of...weird..I don't know if I would use them but hey! lol Good luck!
Avatar n tn Hello, Pityriasis versicolor is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of pityriasis versicolor respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.
Avatar n tn I had what looked like a yeast infection (itching, tenderness, clear discharge), but my swabs came back negative for that and bacterial vaginosis. MickeyVicky kindly informed me that cysts (I have a small one that will hopefully resolve soon) cause hormonal changes that can cause yeast-like infections such as this.
Avatar n tn This may sound crazy, but the only time I seem to get a yeast infection is after receiving oral sex. If my boyfriend goes down 3 or 4 nights in a row I start developing one. I was just wondering if anyone else has expierencied this, or knows if there could possibly be something in his mouth causing this. (Obviously I would notice and not let him go there if is something I could see) Any suggestions would be great.
Avatar n tn Or.....your partner can have a yeast infection and you two keep passing it back and forth, have him checked too.

Avatar m tn ) I don't think circumcision will help - the skin is dry and harbouring the yeast in the skin. Do you eat enough fat in your diet? not the HDL everyone is harping about - I mean the real LDL (bad stuff) the skin needs LDL to maintain suppleness and prevent dryness - also get your partner to use plenty of lubricant - is she getting the yeast infections as well? What a drag!
Avatar n tn It is always good to create a barrier between the childs skin and urine on the diaper. desitin works well and vaseline is another barrier. Leaving the child with out a diaper so the air will dry it up is also helpful.. ..
Avatar m tn i know a thing or two about yeast infections but as for the redness around the vulva thats new to me. it could be due to an infection coming from the yeast infection or probably due to other factors in her life. the best i can offer is to try and keep clean that area and to make sure she does not wear clothes that are too restraining in the crotch region, she needs to let it breath alittle down there and wear cotton undies. comfort and clean is the way to go.
