Okay, so, I've been stuck with a yeast infection for the past two days. It hurts, 'down there' is swolen and red. Here's what I did to help. First, I took some benadryl (not sure if I spelled that right.) and drank a cup of tea. Sleep helps your body heal itself faster. I washed off the outermost parts with hydrogen peroxide. It hurts, but it's worth it, trust me. Then I filled up my bath tub to where the water is just above my hips, as hot as I could handle. I took a turkey baster (sounds gross, I know, bear with me.) and sat in the bath tub. I used the baster to flush out the inside of my vagina. The INSANE itching has stopped. It still aches, but it's not nearly as bad, or as red. I dabbed my vagina and inner thighs dry (trying not to put too much pressure) and sat for five to ten minutes to let it air dry. Tomorrow, I'm headed to CVS to pick up some diaper rash ointment. (It helps with the pain and the burning/itching.)

ROTFL. Desperate times. You never said it was a yeast infection. I hope it wasn't because after doing all of that I am sure you still have it. You have to use an anti-fungal, either natural or prescription to get rid of a yeast infection.

Hi, this my sound crazy but one cheap and most effect way to stop the itching and pain is get a bowl of hot water and salt. Place bath cloth in the hot water and apply into to your vagina. This will soothe the pain. To get rid of the problem drink nothing but water. I know this may not sound like it works, but it does. I was itching everday, swollen, nothing helped. My grandmother told me to drink water, every 10 to 15 minutes I was drink a bottle of water and applying the hot bath cloth. Within a 15-20 minutes the pain was gone and so was the itching. However, after it goes away you must continue to drink the water. I drink 8 glasses of water a day and had no more problems. I hope this works for you.
