Simple Home Remedies to Get Rid of a Yeast Infection

More than 70% of all women will have a yeast infection at some point in their lives. The statistics is not clear for men, babies and elderly people but they can also get a yeast infection. Yeast infection is a very annoying and disturbing disease and this article will provide you with some home remedies that you can use now to cure your symptoms.

Home Remedy #1- The use of Tea Tree Oil. This is a very popular home based treatment. You simple apply some tea tree oil to a tampon that is already soaked in olive oil and insert it into the vagina for about 30 – 45 minutes. The purpose of the olive oil is to prevent the tea tree oil from being absorbed into the tampon but rather get distributed to the inner walls of the vagina. Using this method twice a day will result in a more speedy recovery, however once per day will still do the job.

Home Remedy #2- The use of garlic. Garlic has some anti-fungal properties and this will reduce the build up of candida. All you need to do is to peel off a clove, cut it in half and then wrap it in a piece of cheesecloth or gauze and inserted all the way up to the cervix in your vagina. You can leave it for at least 30 minutes but for better results, it would be best to leave it overnight.

Home Remedy #3- Another popular home remedy for yeast infection, is the use of yogurt. Yogurt is made from a composite of bacteria and these bacteria produces a substance that is inhibitory to candida. This means that the more of these bacteria you introduce the more and quicker you will get rid of your yeast infection. Just dip a tampon in some sugar free yogurt and insert it into the vagina. Doing this for about a week will result in a big difference.

These are just a few simple but effective home remedies for yeast infection.
