In brief: Yeast medication
You can try time and your immune system as well as limiting sugar and yeast in your diet, but typically, due to discomfort, patients prefer medication.
I assume this is vaginal, but yeast under skin folds can be treated the same way - with an over the counter vaginal yeast medication/cream. If it doesn't respond to this you will need to be eval'd for other infection or resistance.
