I have had a yeast infection on and off for the last 3 months. Long story short is that I had sinus surgery and was on antibiotics that cause it by killing off all of my good bacteria in my body. Then I have had two sinus infections since. The yeast infection has yet to go away.

Reading all of the methods people were trying on here, I tried a couple out and they failed to work. My doctor has had me on fluconazole at least 6 times. And I have been to the my doctor 3 or 4 times to cure it.

First I tried a yogurt approach. It was recommended to freeze yogurt in tampon applicators and put them up there for a couple of hours. I think that made it worse because it landed me back into the doctors office. I took fluconazole again, twice but it didn't work.

Next I tried garlic. I poked a a hole through a clove with a fork and used unflavored dental floss. This did not work. My yeast infection was more of a discharge that would not go away. I didn't have itching symptoms, or redness. Just uncomfortable a little bit, and pain during sex. I just knew something was wrong.

I also tried over the counter creams like monistat, and the generic ones.

I finally went to the doctor one more time, to the walk in clinic on a Sunday, and saw someone else who was a female. She game me four fluconazole, and told me that sometimes it takes women four weeks to get rid of it. Also, she told me from her experience that the over the counter form of Boric Acid works miracles for yeast infections. So I picked it up from a Fred Meyer Pharmacy, I had to ask the Pharmacist they keep it behind the counter. It's a powder so I had to make my own little pills. You need to buy empty capsules that are the clear ones and can dissolve. However I was in a rush and had no idea where to buy them. This is silly, but I found some capsules with vitamins ground up, but ended up emptying them for the boric acid powder. I found empty ones really cheap on amazon but was unwilling to wait to get them.

Needless to say, after using the boric acid in the capsules and putting them up there really worked! A remedy that can be used at home, and that my Dr. even recommended. The boric acid for a huge bottle was only 9$.

I have been diagnosed again with a chronic sinus infection, and am on Anitbiotics for a whole month. I started taking probiotics, the ones that are refridgerated in pill form under the doctor's orders, but that didn't stop the yeast infection this time. So the second day taking my month long round of Antibiotics I noticed a little more discharge. So I started doing the boric acid right away. It was gone the next day. It works so well, and I am so excited I won't be paying to go to the doctor anymore because of this problem. You need to make sure you do it at night like all the creams. Then it stays up there longer. Also, wear a pad because when you get up in the morning it seems like gravity kind of takes over. Good Luck!

Hello Sarah J , I have a natural remedy for sinus &/or ear infection that I use which works miracle instead of antibiotic. I used to get ear infection all the time, This natural herb mixed is my Naturalist Doctor's recipe. Doctor Stephanie-Taylor White.
You should strongly consider contacting her, see if you can buy her 'sinus formula' online. her website is: wellnesscentermonroe (I can not put it in as a link here, search with that or her name)
This will save you from constantly taking antibiotic.
I rarely get ear infection anymore, thanks to her herbal formula.
