Hey so I'm 19 and I have been suffering from a terrible reoccurring yeast infection for over a year and it takes over my life when it comes back. I have read almost everything everyone has posted on this website and I've tried almost all of it. Tea Tree Oil cured my first one with little effort at all but as time has gone on each one has been harder to kill than the last. On my latest one that started this past saturday with just a small tickle (today is wednesday) and now is full blown (red ichty inflammation, huge amounts of discharge) and now I'm trying apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, coconut oil, garlic (which I've had up there since sunday changing it every 6-8 hours), and it still isn't working 4 days later. Everyone here has been so helpful! I am going to keep going on the track. I also have added something new to my yeast infection defense. I make this 'soup' with hot water, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Right before I shower I dip a rag in then hold it against the irritated area. I hold it there basically until I can't stand it anymore. It hurts more than anything I could ever describe. My next move will be to try hydrogen peroxide. I've read a lot about it and it hopefully will work. I'm scared to douche down there so I'm going to try to find another way to have it help! Thank you again everyone who have posted their stories they all help someone like me who's trying to fend for themselves against our common enemy.
