When most people think of yeast infections, they usually think of vaginal infections. However yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, may infect many different areas of the body. They can also become systemic. While most yeast infections are highly treatable, some can be deadly.
I have been suffering and struggling with skin yeast for over a year. Redness, burning, crazy itching and I have tried so many things to try to get even the smallest amount of relief to no avail. I’ve done powders, creams, ointments. I tried both vaginal and foot fungus creams, antibiotic ointment, foot powder, Gold Bond, Hydrogen Peroxide and none of them helped. The Gold Bond would help only a little but the foot fungus and vaginal yeast treatments actually seemed to make it worse!
Then after cringing at the idea and thinking home remedies for thrush were hogwash, I broke down and grabbed my vinegar. I couldn’t believe it! Instantly the redness went down, the itching soothed and I felt relief! I used white vinegar for the itch. It stings when you put it on but within a couple minutes, the itch is completely gone. I also made a very strong tea of whole cloves, oregano, and thyme. I’ve been putting that on a few times a day and the rash has cleared up immensely in just one day. I can definitely see that it’s helping.
Another home remedies for thrush is the use of plain yoghurt – this will help get rid of the bad bacteria and put in good probiotics Also it can be applied to the infected area to provide effective relief. Just spread it about the infected area and wash it off after five minutes. Yogurt has live benign bacteria, which will fight off the yeast.
Natural remedies may well be our last line of defense as antimicrobial and antifungal agents become less effective due to inherently ever-increasing biochemical resistance on the part of the fungi and bacteria in our environment. Indeed, fluconazole, one of the most common pharmaceutical agents used for this purpose is already proving ineffective in some cases.
