Vaginal thrush is an incredibly common yeast infection that affects many women all over the world at one time or another. It can be very uncomfortable and unpleasant, but thankfully can usually be easily treated by prescription from a doctor or pharmacist.
But for some women, vaginitis thrush will keep coming back and is quite difficult to get rid of. Thrush is caused when you have too much of the Candida Albicans yeast in your body. The yeast feeds on food and produces acid which eats away at your tissues and cells, leaving you with a yeast infection.
The Candida Albicans fungus can live inside the body in hidden places such as in your gut, on your skin or in your throat. When you have the yeast infection, it can grow very quickly, often causing a bad skin condition known as candidiasis, or thrush.
Vaginal yeast infections are also more common than you might think, because most people are more likely to suffer from a yeast infection in the genitals, rather than other areas such as the mouth, the anus or even the genitalia.
This is mainly because men are more likely to suffer from penile thrush because it is not covered by clothing or by the foreskin of their penis. Thrush symptoms may vary, depending on which part of the body you’re infected with.
The most common of these symptoms include
Discharge from the vagina
Treatment of Vaginal Thrush
To treat vaginal thrush symptoms, it’s important to see your doctor if you don’t have any early signs of thrush. Once you do, your doctor can prescribe the correct medications for your condition. These medications are usually not prescribed as a cure but as a relief for the symptoms.
There are different anti-fungal creams and ointments that will be prescribed to treat the itching, burning and irritation of the affected area. Your doctor will probably recommend you get a good anti-fungal cream to use for your vaginal area.
This will work on the yeast in the same way that other creams and ointments are used to soothe your skin. The cream will help reduce the amount of yeast in your body and kill the yeast. If you want to get rid of vaginal thrush naturally, there are things you can do which are very useful.
These natural remedies will not only help you get rid of the itching and burning, but also reduce the amount of yeast in your body. For example, vinegar is an antifungal which is used to kill off the yeast that causes the yeast.
You can use fresh squeezed vinegar, just apply a few drops of it to the affected area and then cover with a towel. When you’re using a good anti-fungal cream to treat your vaginal thrush, you should also be using another method to kill off the yeast.
This method can be through a natural treatment, like a home remedy. For example, you could boil some yogurt, mix it with a teaspoon of honey, cover it with a cloth and apply to the affected area. Garlic has antibacterial properties, which will kill the yeast.
You can take a small piece of garlic and insert it into your vagina before bed to kill off the yeast and prevent it coming back. Tea tree oil can also be used to treat yeast infections. It’s very effective.
However, before trying any of these, make sure that you speak to your doctor and let him or her know what you want to try. You need to let him or her know exactly what you want to do to relieve your symptoms. Otherwise you may end up worsening your condition.
