My OB told me to do a wash for vaginal yeast infection. It seems to really work for me. You use about maybe 2T hydrogen peroxide, and the rest water. Do the rinse and see if this helps. I’ve even done it a couple times in a week, and that’s all I’ve needed. But…if your infection is pretty bad, it could burn like fire, so don’t do it if it’s bad. I just use it to ward it coming on strong.
I also use an anti-fungal cream clotrimazole 1%, found at any drug store or Wal-Mart. I just use a little when it’s bad and seems to help a lot. Also coconut oil. Able just posted a vaginal yeast info page, can’t find it right now, but he gave some more examples of what you can do. Seems the search engine isn’t working? If I find it, I’ll attach it later. 🙂
Try it and see if you can get some relief.
I’ve been struggling with yeast infections on and off for so long. It had to be diet. Now since I’ve been on the strict diet, I’ve only gotten one when there has been a change in what I’m eating.
Look at your diet, is there something that maybe can be affecting it? When I started the diet I was eating spinach and eggplant, totally made me itchy! Some people can do some stuff, others can’t. So just maybe start to look and see what you’re eating and rule things out.
I know it’s so discouraging! But…you’ll make it! I was doing the website diet at first and lost 5 pounds in the first week. I hit the MAJOR VEGGIE WALL at about the fourth day. I figured I’d rather starve than eat another salad for breakfast.
Some people do the cleanse, and others just skip straight to stage one. I don’t know your particular situation, but maybe you can just go to the stage one now? Keep a food journal in the beginning to help you remember what foods you have a reaction to.
I can’t do any meat, dairy, beans, nothing like that. But…I can do Oat Bran, eggs, and coconut flour, coconut milk, and most every veggie on the list! It’s good!! You just have to get the hang of it. If you need ideas on how to cook, just ask. People are super willing to help. There is the recipe section too, to give you some ideas.
Hope this helps? Just trying to work my way through too! It does get better! 🙂
