TEA TREE OIL!!!!!!
I am 21 years old and I have not had a yeast infection since I was 15 years old. I don't really remember how long I had it for and what exactly cured it (other than time). All I remember is how UNBEARABLE the creams were for it, they were worse than the infection itself. I am currently dealing with a yeast infection and the itch inside the actual vagina is torture, and worse, I have my period. So every time I stick a tampon up there is just making all of my problems more painful. Then, (I don't know how to scientifically explain this) when I walk sometimes the tampon just moves around a little bit, whether it just be the shape of your vagina that day or your tampon string is just getting tugged by your underwear or the crease of your bikini line, just causing more disappointment when you finally thought you had some itch relief. You would think a shower would give SOME comfort, but it only lasts a matter of seconds.
Being desperate to eliminate the itch, I tried the tea tree oil method that I read in so many comments on here. I used an applicator-less tampon and (sorry if this is graphic, as if my previous rant wasn't) with the tampon string end pointed towards the ceiling, I touched the tip of the tampon into the opening of the bottle of tea tree oil, then flipped it upside down. Think like how you get nail polish remover onto a cotton ball. Just this little amount worked IMMEDIATELY! Within seconds of inserting the tampon (which was very itchy/uncomfortable when doing it without the tea tree oil, yet not with the oil on the tip) I felt nothing. No itch or irritation feeling, and no longer felt every move my tampon made throughout my day. This was a lifesaver so thank you to all the ladies who had this suggestion.
The only con of this method I guess is that when you pee for the rest of the day, be prepared to get a strong wif of the tea tree oil. But I cannot complain when you compare it to what I was dealing with before.
