home remedies for yeast infections

What is a yeast infection?

A yeast infection occurs when theres an overgrowth of the fungus Candida albicans in your vagina. While it naturally lives there, too much of it triggers irritation, inflammation, itching, and discharge. Theyre uncomfortable but easily treatable and very common: Mayo Clinic estimates that three out of four women will experience a yeast infection in their lifetime.The standard course of treatment is an antifungal medication (available as creams, ointments, tablets, and suppositories). However, some natural home remedies can help lessen symptoms or prevent an infection from taking holdbut more research needs to be done to definitively support their effectiveness.(Note: Always see a doctor to confirm you have a yeast infection and not a sexually transmitted or bacterial infection, which may have similar symptoms.)
