Question: What are some home remedies to treat a yeast infection?
I think I have a yeast infection, but I don’t want to get any medicine or go to the doctor. Are they any home remedies to threat a yeast infection? Will it just go away by itself?

I was just looking this up. Its superior if you get it treated by medicine or it might come back 2x worse over and over again. I just finally went to wal mart and purchased monistat.

Yes it can heal on its own but rarely.

    I do recommend though, going and getting at the very least an over-the-counter remedy from the store for your yeast infection.

    You should really get some medicine because yeast infections can become very bad and very painful.

    I don’t think it cures it but I read a magazine that said dip a tampon into plain, sugar-free, non-fat yogurt and put it in your vagina for 1-3 minutes. It sounds bogus but yogurt is really good for that stuff when you eat it. So putting it directly into your vagina… it absorbs it quicker. I’m not lying… hahaha.

    Tea Tree Oil

    A few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief. It is important to dilute the oil before using it as tea tree oil is extremely potent and can cause inflammation if it is used in its undiluted form. Tea tree oil can be diluted by mixing a few drops of this oil along with a teaspoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil. Tea tree oil has anti fungal properties and will help to control the yeast infection as well as reduce yeast infection symptoms such as itching. Tea tree oil is one of the most effective vaginal yeast infection home remedies but it is necessary to first consult your doctor as some women may have an adverse reaction to this oil. Tea tree oil can also be used as a male yeast infection cure.
    Garlic

    For non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected parts. This remedy is for other affected parts of the body and not for the vaginal yeast infection. If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading. Yeast infection home cures can be used alongside other treatments to help speed up the recovery process.
    Cold Coconut Oil and Cinnamon Oil

    These are two of the best natural cures for yeast infections in both men and women. Cold coconut oil or cinnamon oil can be applied on the infected areas 2-3 times a day to get rid of a yeast infection. Both these oils have effective anti-fungal properties which are very helpful in killing the yeast.
    Vinegar

    A hot sitz bath along with some added vinegar is a great way to relieve skin irritation and itching caused by a yeast infection. It is also an effective remedy to arrest the growth of yeast and restore the PH balance in the body.
