If you are affected by candida infection, you would probably be eager enough to find ways on how you would be able to cure it. If you are hesitant to consult your doctor or take the prescribed anti-fungal medications because you do not want to spend much for your condition, you can try using alternative yeast infection treatments.
Apple cider vinegar is one of the most popular alternative yeast infection treatments. You can use this in three different ways. You can take it orally but make sure that you dilute it in water. It is not advisable that you add sugar when you take apple cider vinegar because it can worsen your condition. You can also apply the diluted apple cider vinegar onto the affected area. If you want to be relieved from the itchiness and burning sensation that is caused by candida infections, you can add at least 2 cups of apple cider vinegar in your warm bath water and dip yourself in it for at least 15 minutes.
If you do not want to use apple cider vinegar, you can topically apply yoghurt onto the yeast-infected area. You can also use herbal extracts as natural anti-fungal ointments. It is also advisable that you refrain from eating sweet food as well as those that have high carbohydrate content because diabetes is linked with the development of yeast infection. Aside from these natural treatments, you have to maintain proper hygiene because a candida infection is an overgrowth of fungi. If your skin, oral cavity or vaginal area is not properly cleansed and dried, fungi would be able to reside on those areas.
