Yeast infection

Just read your 7 tips on treating yeast infection...only they weren't 7 tips on TREATING yeast infection. You could have basically written "the only way to treat a fungal infection is via anti fungal creams" because that is the only real advice you gave on treatment!
I came to your website seeking advice on whether there were other ways, perhaps more natural ways, of treating and I was misguided by your article into thinking there were other ways rather than anti fungal creams. What a waste of time that was!

I'm sorry you have not found any helpful advice yet.  Below I've listed a few tips that may be more helpful then what you previously read.  I must add however that before using these treatments you must be absolutely certain that your symptoms are indeed caused by a yeast infection.  The reason being that if you have something else these treatments might actually make it worse.

1. avoid using soap, only rinse with water

2. if you are using vaginal medications do not use tampons, use pads instead.

3. do not rub to relive itching, instead apply cool damp clothes, or sit in warm water 

4. yogurt and/or probiotics can help

5. douching (with vinegar)

6. garlic and tea tree oil (topically or in diet)
