    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.

    The candida diet! Look into it.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    You could try a topical antifungal like coconut oil or tea tree oil too.

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

    Hi Emma,

    Talk to your doctor or gynecologist about prescribing you Boric Acid. It isn’t covered under my insurance plan, but it is a life saver. When I first started I inserted 1 capsule (vaginally) every night for 2 weeks, then went down to once or twice a week for maintenance for a couple of months. It definitely helped with all of my symptoms.

    Please note that this will NOT cure the internal overgrowth but provide you with temporary relief while working through the diet.

    Best of luck.
