Vaginal Yeast Infection

A vaginal yeast infection is an excess growth of yeast cells in the vagina. Yeast infections are more common in women of childbearing age but can occur at any age. Yeast infection produces a discharge like cottage cheese, vaginal itching, irritation in or around vagina, and sometimes, a burning sensation when passing urine. This is not usually sexually transmitted. It is caused by factors that encourage overgrowth of yeast, such as taking antibiotics, wearing tight-fitting clothes, and using vaginal douches and deodorants. Although they can be uncomfortable, but may rarely lead to serious health problems.

Home Remedies
  • Baking Soda: Add 2 tablespoon baking soda to a lukewarm, shallow bath. It may help to relieve itchiness and discomfort.
  • Yogurt: Apply yogurt to vulva and inside the vagina. To insert yogurt into vagina, put some in the top of a tampon applicator, then insert the tampon into vagina. Remove it an hour later. This has a soothing effect and help to fight infection.
  • Licorice Powder: Boil 1 tablespoon of licorice powder in 1 pint of water for 5 minutes. Cool, strain, and use the tea as a vaginal douche.
Do's
  • Eat a balanced diet, which will help keep your body healthy and help maintain a normal balance of organisms in the vagina.
  • Eat yogurt which may be beneficial in maintaining a normal balance of vaginal organisms.
  • Use only water and unperfumed soap on vulva.
  • Use sanitary pads during periods. If use tampons, change them at least every 3-4 hours.
Don’ts
  • Avoid tight-fitting clothing.
  • Avoid the use of feminine sprays, or perfumes in your vaginal area, which may affect the normal balance of organisms.
  • Avoid scented toilet paper and deodorant tampons.
See Doctor
  • If you think you may have a sexually transmitted infection.
  • If you are pregnant.
  • Discharge is blood stained, greenish yellow, or foul smelling.
  • Have other symptoms such as fever and lower abdomen pain.
  • Have recurrent abnormal discharges.
  • Infection does not clear up in 3-4 days after using the treatment above.
