Garlic has a well-deserved reputation as a disease-fighting agent with antifungal properties. While consuming garlic regularly can keep the body healthy in many ways, some people go so far as to place garlic in the infected region. However, the acidity of fresh garlic can burn sensitive skin, so this home remedy should be used cautiously. A medicated cream based on garlic and thyme was found to be as effective as a pharmaceutical anti-fungal cream in a research study. This cream may be a better option for vaginal Candida if you benefit from topical garlic.
