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

Will putting fruit in non sweetened yogurt with acidophilus feed the yeast I my body?! or does it matter. Trying to get rid of yeast infection.

No: In a healthy person who does not have a medical problem such as diabetes, eating yogurt with fruit should not affect the ability of the yogurt to help with a yeast infection. However, eating yogurt with live cultures only does not always treat a yeast infection. Often topical or oral medications are needed to clear a yeast infection. See your physician to treat this if it is not improving. ...Read more

How to get rid of yeast infection permanently? My gynecologist gave me 2 pink pills (i forgot the name) to take one per week. However, I'm aware that it'll come back later because it happened before. And it really bothers me a lot. What can I do to get ri

Hopefully: Hopefully the medication your doctor gave you will work for your current infection. 5% of women will have recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (rvvc) which is classified as 4 or more vaginal yeast infections per year. This is typically treated with 6 months or more of antifungal medication. Talk to your doctor if you think you fit into this category.

Other things you can do to prevent reccurence is to avoid douching, avoid scented hygiene products, change tampons and pads frequently during menses, avoid tight, non breathable fabrics and change out of wet bathing suits as soon as possible.
