  • dealing with yeast infection

    Hi im here to get advice. I am suffering from IC for awhile and seems that my pain is improving. Ive always had a yeast infection is there any creams that help with the inflamation inside my vaginal area. Its very irritated. Ive tried managing it ive done ok but I recently got a pap and im so irritated. Do people that advance their healing lose the yeast ? How do you manage any tips that can help me would be great. Does anyone know since ive been dealing with my yeast for so long can lead to more severe health problem?

    If your yeast has been formally diagnosed, there's a single use pill that should clear it. The trick is to avoid reinfection. There are some things you can do to prevent that. If you are in a relationship that involves sex, I suggest your partner be tested to be certain there isn't yeast lingering there. Wash clothing frequently. I haven't had a yeast infection since switching to showers instead of tub bathing. It might also help to avoid sugars, or at least cut back on those. Some feel that D-mannose helps --- I haven't had a yeast infection for a long time so I haven't taken it, but it might be worth a try for you.

    I hope this helps --- please let me know how you are doing.

    Sending warm well wishes,
    Donna

      Hi Donna yes I believe in the beginning I would do the pill and cream but this seem to just make it worse. I've read that this can happen. What are your thoughts? Is there a certain cream i should insert vaginally? There seems to be a difference between antifungal medicine and the antibiotics ?

        There are several creams you can buy without a prescription. I suggest you ask your doctor or pharmacist if it could be die-off that makes it feel worse, in which case you might want to continue the treatments for the full recommended time. Are you having cultures done to verify yeast?
