Being a woman is no mean feat. There is a lot that we have to deal with and most of those things come without a choice but that does not change how fabulous all of us are.
Yeast infections are fairly common in menstruating women and even though they are easy to treat, they can be quite problematic in the beginning. If you are confused about having a yeast infection, let me name some symptoms for you. A fishy smell down there, thick discharge that has a thick, cottage cheesy texture would indicate a yeast infection.
Candida, a bacteria is responsible for these kinds of infections but do not fret, I am here with some easy solutions for you!
If you use tampons already, you will find this to be no trouble at all. Buy an organically manufactured pack of tampons and then dip one of them in a bowl of completely unseasoned yoghurt until it cannot soak anymore in and then use it for three days, changing tampons at regular intervals.
Safest and the most natural way to go. All you need are a few spoonfuls everyday!
Nothing fights bacteria as well as a probiotic but remember to be brand conscious about these things.
4.Organic coconut oil
Works like a charm. Be sure to only apply on the area that is attacked.
5.Tea tree oil
A few drops into the yoghurt will ward off all bacteria.
6.Soaking in apple cider vinegar
Warm baths always help with whatever problem you might have and a yeast infection is no different. Just half a cup in some warm water will do the trick.
Do not apply it anywhere. Eating it would chase all the candida away.
Pineapples, mangoes, papayas, all of it- rich in vitamin C and will help you get the bacteria away from yourself.
9.Oil of oregano
Again, the magic does not lie in application; it might not suit your skin. The correct way to use oil of oregano is to use it as an inhalant, say when you are unwinding after a long day or work. It might not seem like a lot but it works really well.
Aloe vera can treat just about anything. Some gel directly on the affected area will soothe you more than you can possibly imagine.
It is rich in antioxidants and can do a fantastic job of keeping the harmful bacteria at bay.
It will not only make you feel better when you are in pain, but will make your immune system stronger, keeping away the bad bacteria.
Make sure you add water to this oil before it makes contact with your private parts. You could also add a few drops into your bath water. You will smell amazing too!
Like the apple cider vinegar remedy, Epsom salt would also work extremely well if you did a soak.
In conclusion, do not worry yourself sick when you fall victim to yeast infections, every women gets one at least once in her life.
