I tried yogurt Friday, Saturday and for the first part of today. But it got so itchy and swollen that I caved and bought an OTC cream

Tea tree oil (don't apply it straight), probiotics, and cut the white sugar.

Re: How to treat a yeast infection?

Yep, I"ve used garlic as well! I peeled it, put a few slits in it and inserted it. To remove it, I beared down a bit, and it nearly pops right out! LOL! I put one in, then 12 hours later, I removed it and put in another, and did this for a few days. I'm not sure how long it takes, because it's been a few years since I've had an infection, but typically I put it in 1 day longer than I saw the symptoms. Works wonders and it's way cheaper to buy a garlic, than the expensive monostat or the Rx.

Re: How to treat a yeast infection?

Garlic has worked for me at any stage and I didn't have to insert it very far just right inside and it works quick. It burns a little but after itching so bad it felt good lol. I haven't had one in a long time but this always worked. Sometimes I would have to puncture she peeled garlic a little like with my nail or a knife so the juice could get out.
