Well after getting a YI and not having the money to go get another over the counter treatment for the next few days, I was desperate to figure something out to end my discomfort. That led me here to this site. I mixed a few treatments I found on this site and a few ideas of my own. The first night, I syringed 1tsp hydrogen peroxide and 1tsp warm water up my hoohoo. I did this in the tub.. Then I proceeded to clean up by getting a bath with some epsom salt in it. make sure to put plenty in it. I got just enough to cover my lady parts in the bath. Make sure to wash down there thoroughly. I also find that oatmeal baths can be pretty soothing but the relief doesnt last long after you get out. The next morning I got up and looked for more remedies. So this is what I did for the next few days. This treatment took care of both internal and exterior discomforts and itching. For internal : get a small bowl and add 1Tbs table salt, 1 cap of apple cider vinegar, and 1Tbs of hot water. Then place a tampon in the mixture and let it soak up as much as possible. I left mine in the applicator and pushed just a lil out to make sure it got soaked up. While that is soaking up you can make your mixture for the external treatment. You get 1/2C warm water, 1Tbs salt, and 2Tbs of apple cider vinegar. Clean out as much of the infection from your hoohoo as possible. With a clean and soft rag, soak your rag in the solution and then GENTLY apply to labia and vag opening. Do not put rag inside you! Hold the rag the rag there for a few mins or until the slight pain goes away. The longer the better. Its not a searing pain with this one. I did this twice just to be safe. Then with a fresh clean rag, soak a corner in hydrogen peroxide and again Gently apply it to yourself. This will be the most comforting thing. Then you take the tampon you have been soaking till now and insert. There will be some discomfort along with it but just bear with it! If you can do this, you are on a fast track to feeling worlds better! Go sit down on the couch and relax a little while. The longer you keep it in (a movie length is best) the more I felt I was getting rid of the infection. Then remove it. If you are uncomfortable down there after you remove it, then apply the peroxide as same before with a clean rag again. I didnt experience any more external itching or internal after this. I did this twice a day. After three days it was about gone! I finally had the money to get a regular monistat 7 treatment but only had to use it twice! The treatment is used while you are asleep so I still did my home remedies during the day. Just to be safe I followed with it another day. All this is said also with me taking a garlic pill each morning, and changing my underwear very often. Also I wore loose fitting clothing to help keep the air flow going down there. If you are a stay at home mom, then be free and wear your underwear around the house! I even went to the extent to wear my husbands boxers around since they were more freeing. Making sure that they were washed properly before he wore them again of course though. They feel just like shorts! The yeast cant grow in the air. It grows in damp, moist areas. I feel I may have caught mine a bit early but thats a key when it comes to these kinda things too. The earliest the better! I hope I helped and I hope you feel better too!
