How do you treat vaginal yeast infection?

OTC meds: You can start first with the otc creams and suppositories. There will be a section at the drug store for this. However, if you've never had a yeast infection before, i'd recommend getting checked out by a doctor first just to confirm. Symptoms of yeast infections can also look like any number of other vaginal infections that could be more serious.
