After dealing with terrible mouth pain from an abscessed tooth for a week, I've come to find that due to the antibiotics I'm taking, I've gotten my first ever yeast infection. Having to spend the last of my money on the antibiotics and my dentist appointment, I was desperate to find a cheap alternative. Luckily, I had some stuff here at the house already. Here's what I did..

I took a shower with the removable shower head pointed directly at my whoha. I wanted to get the pieces of yeast out as much as I could.
Then, after patting dry, I took some toilet paper, a couple of pieces and put some hydrogen peroxide on it to make a Tucks pad. I gently patted all around and let dry. (It kinda burned for a second) Then I used A&D diaper rash cream with Zinc. I good for a while. Enough to make it through the day without wanting to run to the bathroom every 5 seconds to scratch my area with a fork.
Later on, before bed, I took a bath with salt water. I just sat in the water for 15 minutes or so. I did the above steps, but added putting salt directly on the affected area. I read on this site that it causes you for have a salty taste in your mouth so it's better to do it at night. I didn't really have a problem with it. But, I took a shower in the morning and checked to see if there was anymore curds. There wasn't. There's no itching, no nasty gunk coming out of me. I'm going to keep up with the salt bathsffor a while longer.

I did the salt thing about 5 weeks ago and still had the salt taste in my mouth so I went to the dr and he told me to use Monistat for 7 days, after 1 day the salt taste went away, he also told me to use epson salt not regular salt...............

I had constant visits to the Gynocologist for years for yeast infections. I had read in a health magazine about Acidophilus helping yeast infections. For over 20 years now I have taken 3 Acidophilus capsules daily and my yeast infections are gone. Occasionally if I do begin to have any problems, I just double up on the Acidophilus and the symptoms are gone. My gynocologist asked one time why I was no longer having problems. I told him what I was doing and he wrote it down to tell other patients to try.
