Yeast medication: Coconut oil is not going to help and may make things worse. There are no natural remedies for a yeast infection such as this. There are over the counter yeast creams available without a prescription that should solve the problem. Head to your pharmacy and purchase Clotrimazole, Vagisil or another antfungal medication to treat this problem
