Home Remedies For Yeast Infections
Yeast Infection Home Remedies
Yeast infection home remedies start with avoiding persistent and excessive moisture in the genital area by wearing underwear or panty hose with cotton crotches, and loose fitting slacks. This provides ventilation for reducing moisture in the area. Furthermore, do not wear wet bathing suits or exercise clothes for long periods of time. Wash all exercise clothing promptly after each use to minimize the chance for yeast infection.
Honey - Smeared liberally over the infected region, this yeast infection home remedy is said to bring balance to the area and contain the fungal growth. Let it saturate for five or ten minutes and then bathe.
Eating Yogurt - Eating yogurt daily as a yeast infection home remedy can help prevent or help clear up a case of yeast infection from the inside, according to some. The L. Acidophilus bacteria in live or active yogurt culture is said to help balance the fungal growth in the affected area. You may recall earlier that the lactobacillus (dairy bacteria) were important. They are the good bacteria which keep the yeast infection fungus under control.
Applying Yogurt - This home remedy for yeast infections requires that you apply yogurt liberally over the affected area, as described for the honey treatment.

You want to kill the yeast infection, not feed it!
