Question: How do I cure a yeast infection when I am allergic to the over the counter drugs like Monistat and Gynolotrim?
I am allergic to all the over the counter yeast infection treatments. Diflucan worked for about 10 days and now it is back. I can’t afford to go to the Dr. (I pay 100%) to get a prescription each time I get a yeast infection.

Antibiotics will cause yeast infections. If you’re taking any, it probably won’t do much good to treat it while you’re still taking them. Also, your diet might contribute to your yeast infections. Try and cut back on sweets and any food containing yeast, such a breads, rolls, donuts, and even beer. Acidophilus pills can help ward off yeast infections, too. They’re accessible in the vitamin section. Keep your “area” dry and wear cotton underwear. I use cornstarch instead of baby powder. It’s all natural and there’s no perfumes or dyes to irritate.

    I have heard that a baking soda douche may help for chronic yeast infections. You also need to stop eating sweets, increase your intake of helpful bacteria by taking acidophiles and eating yogurt. I have also included a link to a article about yeast infections below.
    Good luck!

    If you try the baking soda douche – be careful as I’ve heard the opposite – I’ve heard baking soda will actually make a yeast infection worse.

    Have you tried tea tree oil or garlic (be careful as the oil does sting.

    Consider going on a yeast-free diet, no sugar (as sugar feeds yeast), no alcohol – so no cakes, candy, sweets, etc.

    *Take Lots of acidophilus/probiotics or eat Unsweetened (Plain) Yogurt
    *Avoid tight jeans and other tight pants
    *Wear cotton underwear during the day, no thongs
    *Wear no underwear to bed
    * Put a tsp of apple cider vinegar in a 6-8 ounce glass of water and drink it 2-3 times a day.


    Fill a bathtub with just enough warm, not hot, water to create a sitz bath (enough water to cover your groin and just up to your belly). Add 2 cups of raw apple cider vinegar and sit in the bath with your knees folded toward your body (not stretched out flat). You can stay in this bath mixture for 15 minutes. Gently pat dry and make sure you are very dry before putting any clothes on. Wear only cotton underpants, preferably washed in natural unscented detergent.

    Good luck!
