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
