Thanks to Di for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Question: this is TMI, but anything I can use to cure my own yeast infection other than the usual gross creams?

Answer: I don't know about babies or whether you could be passing it back and forth, but I do know that I have used yogurt to cure a yeast infection.

Haven't had one in eons now, but just used a big plastic syringe type thingee to squirt some plain ol' yogurt from the fridge in there. Sorry I can't remember how much (half-ish of the plastic syringe - -LOL) and very soon, without spending much money, the yeast infection was gone.

My doctor at the time recommended it, and I've since seen that yogurt is used in lots of places that don't know about or can't afford other stuff. Something about the acidopholus setting right the yeast-to-good-flora balance, but like I said, it's been a while.

    Yeast infections usually develop in the damp or moist areas of the human body. Their symptoms appear beneath the skin folds, lower parts of the abdomen, finger nails, and vagina and around the dentures. They become more common with age. Yeast infections normally affect the vaginal area and causes irritation and burning. They are chronic infections that recur frequently. You need a tested and proven medicine in order to prevent its attack again.

    There are many treatment options available for yeast or Candida infection. Antifungal medicines are used to cure vaginal yeast infections. They are available in the form of creams or ointments. You can directly insert them into the vagina. If your male sex partner does not show any signs of yeast infection then treatment of your sex partner is not necessary. However, if there are symptoms of infection, your spouse or sex partner have to be treated with antifungal ointments or creams. There are many medicines available at medical stores or pharmacies. But you must not use them without consulting a good doctor. It may be harmful for you to use them on your own. This is especially recommended if you have contracted the disease for the first time or if you are pregnant. The symptoms of the infection may reappear if you do not use a tested or result oriented ointment or cream. You have to use creams from two weeks to six months or as recommended by your doctor. If irritation reappears during the cure you have to stop the medicine.

    The way to get rid of a yeast infection is to use over-the-counter lotions or creams that are manufactured to kill this fungus and put your vaginal ambiance back to normal again. Repetitively used products include fungicides, all of which are available at your local pharmacy.

    In case the infection develops into more serious and systematic disease, certain strong fungicides are recommended by doctors. Vaginal or oral yogurt is used for the treatment of yeast infection in women. If you make yogurt a vital part of your everyday diet, it can be helpful for you. Yogurt contains lactobacillus acidophilus that can reduce the recurrence of Candida infection.
