How do you get rid of yeast infection? How do you get rid of yeast infection? What kind of tests should I get done and then what kind of medications are recommended? Are there over-the-counter options? What about natural alternatives?

If : If this is the first time you are dealing with a possible yeast infection then you should see your doctor for confirmation. I am assuming we are discussing vaginal yeast infections. The symptoms are vaginal itching, irritation, and a white cottage cheese like discharge. The symptoms vary. Most doctors can make the diagnosis by history and examination alone. In addition a special test called a wet mount can be done; this allows the doctor to look under the microscope and make a diagnosis based on their findings. As far as treatment goes there are multiple over the counter medications, or your doctor can prescribe you a pill and/or a cream. As far as natural alternatives, visit your local vitamin/herb store for lactobacillus acidophilus. There are many forms of this supplement. Ask for assistance. Please see your doctor before treating yourself, and if it is yeast then you will know the signs and can self treat in the future. All the best. ...Read more

I : I am so sorry that you are going through that. It sounds like you are doing everything right. Ask your doctor if they think that vaginal atrophy (common after hysterectomy) are contributing to your symptoms. They have probably told you to reduce sugary foods and drinks, reduce alcohol (because of sugar content), only wear cotton underwear or ideally no underwear, avoid baths or bubble baths, and to use a blow dryer (from a safe distance) after your shower. You can also ask your pharmacist for products such as vagisil (there are also other products that are similar) that can help keep the skin clean and itch-free. ...Read more
