See below: You can help your body by eating well and supplementing with acidophilus and foods like kefir on daily basis. You should see your gyn for the initial treatment though. Good luck from nyc.

Underlying cause....: Assuming you are refering to a vaginal yeast infection or other skin infection, the persistence of a yeast infection is likely related to the microflora (the bacteria that typically resides in that anatomy) that has been disrupted (seen with antibiotic use) or else, a deficiency in the immune system. Talk to your doctor to discuss strategies for either cases.
