Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection and vinegar bath


Avatar n tn I have medicine and cream prescribed by the doctor. It is really burnt and iritated. I keep reading to take a vinegar bath... and can't stop thinking that it is going to hurt like crazy.
Avatar f tn Also, organic cocunut oil works great to even out the pH balance and itching...Google works.
Avatar n tn not sure if a yeast infection would cause her to be sore or not, has she been itching it? my daughter is 4 1/2, and she has been having red rawness on her vagina. this has been going on for over a year, and nothing is making it go away. she has been on several medications for it, the doctors have ruled out a yeast infection. i am worried. she gets so raw that she cries. ive been using different types of baby bum cream to see what soothes her. if it goes away... it always comes back.
Avatar f tn take a bleach bath in a mean time ! they had my sister do it cus babys get yeast infections regularly and cus she had little bumps on her legs. just add like half a glass of bleach.
Avatar f tn So now I have a case of yeast infection. If it's not one thing it's another. I don't know the soonest I will see my doctor. So now I need to know... Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can take safe to hold me on on this uncomfortable feeling of having a yeast infection until I see a doctor? Any safe home remedies money is tight?
Avatar f tn That symptom was replaced by itching of my clitoris and external surrounding areas, there was no abnormal discharge , i researched it on the internet and i figure that i have a yeast infection. Now i have a thickish whitish yellow discharge but it isn't cottage cheesy like others have described. Right now the itching is still there but it isn't anything like it was its quite a bit better and mostly itchy around the clit area.
Avatar n tn im a virgin but after i recieved oral sex i got a yeast infection and i got those bumps on my libia as well. i think theyre swollen nerves but my doc told me not to worry. it itches after use soap but it hasnt spread. im wnodering if it was inflamed from the yeast nfecton or im alergict to soap or my bfs salya.
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!!
Avatar n tn I am 21 weeks pregnant and I thought I had a yeast infection and several obgyn visits ago I told my doctor that I get them a lot so she prescribed me some cream. The time before when I thought I had one it turned out not to be and so I didn't use the cream, but this time I did. You insert it vaginally and push like you would if it was a tampon. Sorry it this is too much info, but have no other way to describe. I have been having a lot of discharge...which is usual being pregnant...
Avatar n tn It's much more healthy than douching and the vinegar balances out your ph levels. If you feel like you have a yeast infection coming on, you start feeling irritation or noticing more discharge, take a vinegar bath right away. Also, be sure to avoid heavy soaps when you shower. Use Dove to wash your private area.
179055 tn?1189759429 Hello All, Yes, I am still suffering from this yeast infection. It's been one week total and I have tried to let it clear up naturally by doing the following.... apple cider vinegar mixed with water and doing a splash eating plenty of yogurt drinking cranberry juice AND it is STILL here!! I am very uncomfortable and am resorting to medicine once I pick up my prescription. The doctor prescribed MYCOLOG. Anyone ever use that? Anyone heard of it?
Avatar n tn she went back to get tested for everything and her doctor checked for yeast infection. she had a yeast infection and her doctor said she probably had one for a log time. i read that mixing white vinegar in a bath helps yeast infections. i've done that twice and it has been the only thing that has helped my symptoms besides using a ton of lotrimin. i also have a yellowish film on my tongue that looks like yeast infection pictures i've seen online.
Avatar n tn i've had a recurring yeast infection for a year and a half. Usually i just get one a month, and it goes away with treatment, but this one i've have since the very beginning of may with no relief. i've tried all the medicine. It's so boyfriend and i can't even have sex! any help?
Avatar f tn I can tell you this.. before I had my son (10 years ago) I had 2 yeast infections in my whole life.. I had him when I was 23.. after I gave birth to my son I have had numerous.. countless yeast infections. I read that some women are just more prone than others to having them. I recently had one of the cottage cheese type infections and was startled but my husband told me he's noticed them before..
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 ASK YOUR DOCTORS AS THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT THIS IS NOT NOT NOT RECOMMENDED AND WILL COMPOUND YOUR PROBLEM. I had a yeast infection recently and used Monostat one day treatment. You can buy that brand or a generic brand but the one day has a higher concentration of medicine. I also began eating probiotic yogurt. My yeast infection was gone in 2.5 days. If it is your first yeast infection, it is recommended that you see a doctor.
Avatar f tn I've also heard of people putting Apple cider vinegar in the bath and take a warm bath not hot obviously because that's not good for pregnant women.
Avatar n tn My doctor called it Ping Pong because my husband and I just kept giving the yeast infection back and forth through vaginal sex. I also noticed that every time we had oral sex I would get an infection almost immediately! I know this sounds crazy but we discovered that if we both eat yogurt every day the yeast infections are non-existant. Completely gone!
Avatar n tn Wat can help me im 16 an its my first time gettin a yeast infection
Avatar n tn I'm pretty sure its yeast but since posting this I did experience another OB. Initially it started off as a yeast infection and the meds for it stopped the itching and treat it but I realised that the itching persisted and it felt more like how I felt when I had my primary OB. I was still taking the acicyclovir since my first OB around June 8 I've just increased the intake during this OB. I'm treating the Y.I. with a suppository cream and cleaning the sores with peroxide.
Avatar f tn i've had a yeast infection since summer and i need help bad. it's made me depressed and angry and i don't know what to do. i've been to the doctor so many times, they always give me the same pill and have given me plenty of refills and it does not work. i've tried 7 day monostat several times, i've tried refresh products and probiotics and cinnamin pills and nothing is working. the only thing that came close was inserting a probiotic capsule every night.
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 A safe, natural way to treat a yeast infection while pregnant is white vinegar and water. 1 part vinegar to 1 part warm water. (I use a half cup of each.) Do not use it like a douche. Instead take a washcloth and gently bathe the inside and outside of your vagina. It does sound like you have gotten past the point of clearing it up with this remedy but it will ease the symptoms and kill some of the bad yeast. Def time for a 2nd opinion.
Avatar n tn I began to notice in April that I was having yeast infections that seemed to occur the week of my period or sometimes the week before that. Classic yeast infection symptoms of external irritation, cottage cheese like discharge and burning. the symptoms disappear when my period starts.This has happened just about every month since. My mother told me she used to get them before her period and that they were mild. So were mine.
Avatar n tn byw, topical cream (like vagisil) applied to the affected area will not cure a yeast infection..
Avatar n tn I go to the store and buy the azo yeast pills, and a gallon of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar (3-5) cups in a warm bath works wonders, I usually take 3-5 baths (1 a night) to ensure the problem has ceased. & take the AZO yeast tablets 3 times a day for a week, along with plenty of water. If that doesn't work (which has rarely ever happened) you can try inserting plain yogurt into the vagina, the good bacteria will kill the yeast.
Avatar f tn 6 months of this, I was about to lose it, but then I read that a vinegar bath could sooth my itch... and it did, almost instantly, worked better than diflucan and didn't burn like monistat... but my BV was back, so I started to look for home remedies, probiotics? Got some capsules, the day after I took them I had a yogurt like consistency discharge, not cool. Eating more yogurt? Didn't do anything. What was left? More pills, peroxide douche, garlic or boric acid.
