I have had candidiasis of the vagina called vaginal yeast infection for several months. My doctor prescribed me some anti-fungal medications to take by mouth. But, recently I’ve found these meds have some unpleasant side effects. And, as soon as I stop taking them, the yeast overgrowth returns very often. Its symptoms are redness, intense itching, and lots of white, thick discharge from my vagina. Could anyone here please suggest what I can do to reduce symptoms and prevent recurrent cadidiasis? Thanks.January 28, 2018 at 9:48 pm #175091

The candida diet! Look into it.January 30, 2018 at 6:45 pm #175093
I’m trying eating an anti-candida diet. But the redness, itchiness and irritation are still my big concern. Now I’m using an anti-fungal cream to relieve these symptoms and it seems to work very well. Thanks!January 30, 2018 at 7:01 pm #175094

Using Fugacil. Last month, I had a bad case of yeast infection with a thick, yellowish vaginal discharge and extreme itching. Prescription meds and home remedies- I tried all of them but saw no result. I then used this cream and the itching decreased visibly after 3 days.January 30, 2018 at 7:14 pm #175095
Thanks. I’m using Fugacil, too. A pharmacist at a local drugstore gave it to me and advised me to apply it twice daily. Although there’s some stinging of the skin while it works, I notice some improvements. A foul-smelling discharge of mine reduces a lot.February 2, 2018 at 12:06 pm #175101

You could try a topical antifungal like coconut oil or tea tree oil too.February 20, 2018 at 1:27 pm #175173

I second the advice to use coconut and tea tree oils. They have worked better than prescription anti-fungals for me.
