For non-genital areas of the body, you can apply over the counter lotrimin - it's for athlete's foot, works great on humans and dogs. For yeast infection in the mouth, also called thrush, you can use an herbal liquid called gentian violet, just ask your pharmacist at the local drug store. It's less than $5, apply 3 times daily, coating the entire inside of the mouth. It's a very vivid shade of purple that will stain anything you get it on but it works, especially on infants who have been on lots of antibiotics.

Home Remedies For Yeast Infections
Most women suffer from yeast infections at some point in their lives. In fact The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases estimates that roughly 75\\% of American women will have a yeast infection at least once in their lives. And about half of this number will have recurring infections or will have multiple infections.
When considering causes a lot of fingers get pointed at the following: bad diet i.e. heavy carbohydrate based diets. Long or extended use of antibiotics and steroids. Here are some home remedies for yeast infections:
One fairly effective natural cure for yeast infections is supplementing with probiotics. Probiotics are naturally found in the vagina. When this natural friendly count of bacteria grows weak or low, it opens the door to other harmful types of bacteria like Candida. So using probiotics to naturally re-balance the healthy yeast counts in the vagina is a very effective way home remedy for combating yeast infections.
Other common ways of handling yeast infections are ultimately centered around the antibacterial properties that the herbal cure or folk remedy has. There are quite a few herbs and home remedies for controlling bacteria. Here are a few of the most common:
Garlic has a long history of use for combating yeast infections. The oil that is secreted from a clove of garlic is what makes it effective. Here's how to use it: peel a clove of garlic and wrap it in a piece of gauze, twist off or tie off the ends so it stays put. Then insert it into the vagina.
Most get relief from their yeast infections within a couple days. It's important to change it frequently as you shouldn't leave it in any more than 6 hours before putting in a new clove. You can also buy garlic tabs if you prefer they are readily available in most health food stores.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Adding a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath water can also relieve itchiness and discomfort. You can also dilute it and dab it directly on areas of the vagina that are itching.
Tea Tree Oil
A couple drops of tea tree oil can be put on a tampon and then inserted relieves itchiness and other symptoms.
Oil of Oregano
Also highly effective against unfriendly bacteria. Commonly found in most health food stores. You take it orally. It's worth noting that a high quality oil should be chosen i.e. a high carvacrol count is important.
Home Remedies for Yeast Infections - Dietary Considerations
Eating plain un-sweetened yogurt helps overall vaginal health as friendly bacteria that are naturally found in the vagina are plentiful in this healthy breakfast food. Eat one pack every morning to keep a good healthy bacteria balance in the vagina.
Because yeast thrive in a wet warm environment, wearing excessively tight clothing or panties that don't breathe well increases your chance of getting your yeast counts out of whack to begin with. Fabrics that breathe well like cotton should be your first choice for underwear. Polyester and rayon based fabric trap heat and moisture and shouldn't be worn if you're grappling with yeast infections.

Ok, let me start at the begining. I'm a 23 years old, 5'8" 165lbs female. I'm in a monogamous sexual relationship and both my partner and I have only been with eachother ever since we were virgins.
About ten months ago, I came down with a vaginal yeast infection. It was not just any vaginal yeast infection. It was incredibly severe. It was, in fact, the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. There was a large amount of white growth all over the outside of my vagina. I can not even describe how painful this was, and the pain came on me very suddenly. I was screaming and crying…
I went to a doc where they prescribed me treatment with Cervugid Ovules - 3 courses. I did a research about this treatment and it is recommended by a lot of doctors from Europe for various sexually transmitted diseases like HPV high risk, Trichomoniasis Vaginalis and more. After i finished all 3 courses ( each cours – 12 ovules for 12 nights) I went back to the same gyno and she tested me for yeast again and it came Negative so I have been cured from this disease.
It's been almost 8 months since I finished the treatment and yeast infection has not returned…
I have reoccurring yeast infections. I'm in pain right now with itching. I took Monostat 7. However, the yeast infection came back after a week. I went to the doctor and he gave me 1 pill to cure it. I feel it made my condition worse. I went to the dr again and she gave me a stronger 7 day cream. I'm on he 2nd night using this stronger cream so we will see. I bought some tea tree oil and put 5 drops in warm water and poured it on my vagina and it did give me some relief. I haven't eaten any processed or white flour foods. No soda. No junk. I am trying to do everything to clear this horrible yeast infection. It's so uncomfortable to get relief from sitting on ice packs. I will see how I feel tomorrow. I must say tea tree oil does give some relief. I wa at work crying hoping no one would see me. The itch is horrible.
I recently dealt with a severe yeast infection for 2 1/2 months. I was ITCHY, SWOLLEN and DEPRESSED! My symptoms were so extreme one morning around 3:00 that I went to the ER. Please don't say a YI has no place in the ER. I was tired, itchy all with vaginal pain! After being treated with at least 5 tubes of YI cream, Diflucan and prayer, I gave in and tried home remedies. After my 4th tube of a 7 day cream, I finally found Tea Tree Oil (a Necessary staple). As sore and as itchy as I was, I did not dilute the oil, I just used it regular strength. Guess what? The itch went away for a couple hours. I decided to try another batch of generic, 7 day YI cream along with the Tea Tree Oil. Before applying the cream at night, I filled a pan with warm water and put 3 drops of oil into the water, sat on the toilet and poured the warmer, oily water over my vagina, which felt deliciously wonderful. I then inserted the cream and went to bed! I did that for 2 weeks. I stopped using the cream the week after and started using the Tea Tree Oil and water mix 2-4 times a day! I had remarkable results. After about 1.5 weeks, I got my 5th jar of damn cream, but I continued with the oil treatments. Finally, after using the 7 day supply of cream, I purchased a small spray bottle. I filled it with a TBSP of peroxide (another staple), about a tsp of Tea Tree Oil and filled the rest of the bottle with water. I sprayed every time I urinated. Yes, it felt wonderful. The 2nd week, I did not have to use vagisil or any other anti-itch cream because for the most part the thickish discharge was gone and the ITCH was faint. I could use Vaseline to calm it.
A small spray bottle
A TBSP of peroxide
Tsp of Tea tree oil
Fill the rest of the bottle with water and shake it
Afterwards dry vagina (lie on the bed, open legs and fan with a piece of paper or cardboard.
Apply creams (if any)

I have stubborn yeast infections. Nothing in the store would fix it. I finally found the perfect solution - garlic! I'll take a clove or half of clove and insert it into my vagina. Not too far now. I tend to sleep with it this way, and by morning, smell and infection is gone. Please note though, your breath will taste/smell like garlic..wierd, I know, but it will fade soon enough. The only thing that happens while using the garlic is a watery leak may occur. But its nothing to worry about. Other than that, works like a dream!
Cut out sugar and breads from your diet.
