Yeast infections cause irritating itching and swelling, and most commonly develop in the vaginal area. They also sometimes affect the lower stomach, the area around the nails, and other regions. Itchiness and a burning sensation while urinating are the most common signs of yeast infection. These infections are very hard to avoid since they can be triggered by pregnancy, stress, and even by medications taken for other health issues. Fortunately, they are more a nuisance than a serious health problem. Many home remedies for yeast infection offer effective and safe treatment options.
Yogurt is one of the easiest home remedies for yeast infections, as this inexpensive, healthy food is found in virtually every household refrigerator. Evidence shows that regular yogurt eaters rid themselves of yeast infections faster than others, and the value of applying plain yogurt to infected areas is well proven. Yogurt contains bacteria that fight the fungi responsible for yeast infections. Put in on the infected area, and leave it in place for half an hour to overnight, and expect to notice a dramatic improvement. Just make sure what you're puttind down there is sugar-free, otherwise you might get stuck in a cycle.
