Natural Remedies for Yeast Infection

So you may have a vaginal yeast infection. There is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Vaginal yeast infections is a common occurrence. It’s caused by the build up of a fungus called Candida Albicans, which is normally found in small amounts in the vagina. The acidic environment in the vagina prevents yeast from growing. If the acidity of the vagina decreases, then too many yeast grow, causing vaginal infection.

The acidity of the vagina can be changed due to menstruation period, pregnancy, intake of antibiotics, steroids, diabetes, personal hygiene or birth control pills.

Overgrowth inflames the vagina and creates discharge, odour, irritation, and/or itching. Some of the most common symptoms of the infection are

1. Itching and burning feeling in the vagina

2. Burning sensation when urinating

3. Swelling around the vulva

4. Odorless vaginal discharge

5. Rash and soreness on outer surface of vagina

If you’re embarrassed to see your doctor, there are many traditional natural remedies that can prevent and help treat the yeast infection.

* Use only organic lubricants – non-organic lubricants may contribute to yeast growth, especially since some lubricants have glucose and other sugars as additives or flavorings, which cause the development of yeast infection.

* Don’t use latex condoms - The use of latex condoms as contraceptives also irritates the sensitive vagina and can aggravate cases of candidiasis.

* Aloe Vera gels when applied will give a quick and soothing relief to the intense itching and burning pain that can accompany candidiasis.

* Prepare a solution by mixing 5 grams of Potassium Sorbate in a pint of water. Using a cotton tampon, insert it into the vagina and keep over night. Remove it in the morning.
