How many times have you had to suffer through a painful burning yeast infection only to find once it’s gone it returns almost immediately? Too many women have endured these reoccurring infections for far too long. These are the women that don’t know why they get them or how to take a few easy steps to preventing them long term. Let’s take a look at some of the more natural ways to cure yeast infections as well as how to keep them from coming back. First of all if you have just finished swimming you will want to be sure to remove your wet swim suit as soon as you can.

All natural organic yogurt is a great treatment option that has multiple uses, the simplest way that this is used is by eating a few servings every day. Another option is to place some on the end of tampon and insert it into the vagina. Finally if you are experiencing symptoms that are external a great way to alleviate them is to apply a small amount to the affected area as it will cool and soothe almost instantly.
Another of the options that we feel we should mention is Apple Cider Vinegar. Apple Cider Vinegar is able to be used by washing with it. Mixed with water or just poured into your bath water it can be used as a soak.
Garlic on the other hand is used mostly the same as the yogurt. It can either be eaten in large quantities or crushed and turned into a paste. As with any new skin care product you should always test for allergies in small areas first.
It should always be advised that you should see a doctor if you have never been formally diagnosed with a yeast infection. Since many different types of illnesses can have similar symptoms you should be sure that you actually have a yeast infection before you start a treatment.
