Home remedies for Yeast Infection:

There are lot of home remedies is available for yeast infection but all are not equally important. Some of the home remedies really work in yeast infection. After analysis I will suggest some home remedies that really work in yeast infection.

Tea Tree oil:


It’s a popular home remedies for yeast infection. Tea tree oil have antiseptic and anti fungal properties. It will reduce the number of Candida fungus. Before using tea tree oil first you have to make this dilute. First mix few drops of tea tree oil with water. Now take a tampon and dip it into the solution. Now gently insert the tampon directly into the vaginal area. If you feel a bit of awkward in inserting tampon then you should stop using it because the feeling of not using it can give you an urge to make mistake.



Yogurt contains Lactobacillus acidophilus which is a user friendly bacteria helps to fight against the yeast contagion. Plain yogurt with nothing added is preferable. Inserting whole tablespoon of yogurt sounds discomfited for me. Even this process can lead to any other problem. The easiest way is to dip the tampon in the yogurt and insert it into your vagina. If tampon process is irritating for you then you can also place some yogurt in a small tub and sit in it. Application of yogurt externally on the vaginal area can also fight against yeast infection. If other parts of your body are affected by yeast infection then you can easily apply yogurt like other methods. Include yogurt in your daily diet list to avoid yeast infection.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

This is the final issue that we think works best if the aforesaid methods are an irritant matter for you.

Boric acid suppository is one effective remedy which can be found through prescription. The process is quite easy; just insert one boric acid capsule in your vaginal area before going to sleep.

Prevention is better than cure:

You can prevent yeast infection by following some easy steps.

  1. Maintain proper personal hygiene. This is the most important thing if you needed to be taken care of properly.
  2. Take a bath regularly. And use mild unscented soap. Feminine products use harsh chemical and it can lead to any other problem.
  3. Try to keep the vaginal area dry and clean. Wet area is the birthplace of any fungus. So, obviously try to keep your vaginal area clean and pat it dry after shower or urinate.
  4. Don’t use the under wear that makes the vaginal area wet.
  5. Try to avoid tight cloths. It can increase your body temperature. This temperature is a simulator factor for fungal growth.
  6. Always use clean, soft and dry towel.
  7. During menstruation change your pads frequently.
  8. Try to use cotton underwear if you are facing yeast infection problem. Cotton underwear gives relief.

If you think your situation is worsening then try to consult with your doctor. Your doctor will provide prescription which can give cure which rate is almost 90%.

I think it’s a problem which irritates you a lot. You can try any of method which I have mentioned earlier. You know that, vagina is sensitive part in your body so if you feel any kinds of discomfort by using the home remedies than stop immediately. Sometimes yeast infection can’t treat by home remedies.
