How can you get immediate relief from vaginal
yeast infections symptoms like itching and burning, and do natural home remedies like
Yogurt or garlic work? Hi, I'm Michelle. And today we're talking about the best remedies
for treating and getting immediate relief from vaginal yeast infections. So we're going to start with getting immediate
relief, ways to get immediate relief, I'm going to talk about some of the home myths
related to treating vaginal yeast infection, and then we're going to talk about the most
effective scientifically based, treatments, over the counter that you can access at home
for treating this condition and actually treating it for good. So, let's start with some immediate relief
techniques. Now, Yeast as a single cell organism and what
it does is it exists in the body, it exists on the skin, it can also exist in the bowel,
and in the vagina of some women and that's actually quite normal, and it often causes
no symptoms.

But it's when the yeast overgrowth and the
system becomes out of balance that the use then can overgrow and it can cause those symptoms
like the redness, the itching, the burning, the pain, all those types of symptoms that
we associate with thrush or vaginal yeast infection. And also it's important to note that with
those symptoms, or white discharge is not necessarily a symptom of a vaginal yeast infection. Now, to immediate relief. Now, I really hope these help you. The first immediate relief technique that
you can use is get Zyrtec. So Zyrtec is an antihistamine, and the antihistamine
can actually give you immediate relief from the itching so it's taken orally as a tablet. So this is a really great way of getting some
immediate relief for those that awful itching sensation that can then make you want to scratch
and make the problem actually much worse by irritating the tissues.

Now the second lesser known way of getting
relief is through a Hydrocortisone cream. This is a DERM aid. This is a Hydrocortisone 1% soft cream and
this can be used only externally on the Vulva. And what this hydrocortisone treatment does
when just used for short term? Is it can relieve swelling, redness, and itching. So these are both over the counter medications
and they're both readily available to give you immediate relief from those symptoms while
you're waiting for the other medic antifungal medications to take effect. So they're really handy things to know about. Now, let's talk a little bit about some of
the home treatments and the home treatment myths. The first one I'd like to talk about is sugar
and the Candida diet.

Now, when you eat sugar, that sugar doesn't
go into the vagina. The only way that sugar can affect the vagina
is actually through high sugar in the urine and that happens when with diabetes, particularly
type two diabetes, or with kidney failure. So this doesn't happen as part of the diet. And so, this is why the Candida diet is not
scientifically based and it won't cure Candida. The second home remedy I'd like to talk about
is garlic.

Now, I've heard about the theories about and
women telling me about having used crushed garlic or sliced garlic and inserting it vaginally. Now, what this does is burns the tissues,
it's not an effective treatment and it's actually really quite dangerous and potentially damaging
and irritating even if it's wrapped up. The third home remedy that sometimes used
is tea tree oil. Now again, tea tree oil shouldn't be used
inside the vagina, it can cause an allergic reaction for one, and it can also cause vaginal
irritation. Those tissues are really delicate, and they
don't need strong plant based medications like tea tree oil on them. It will just cause further damage. Now the last home remedy that I'd like to
talk about is Yogurt. Now, some women find that Yogurt is soothing,
and that's understandable, but it won't fix the problem.

The Yogurt actually has a different type of
bacteria and remember that you're inserting a new type of bacteria into the vagina when
you actually use Yogurt. So you don't know what sort of effect that's
going to have. But it doesn't have the bacteria that are
needed for the healthy vagina, and it's not going to fix the problem. So while it might be soothing, it's not going
to fix and work with an antifungal medication for you. So, now let's talk about the actual treatments
that really do work and these are twofold.

You can either use our oral tablet form and
cream or pessary form. Both are equally effective. And let's go through both of them in turn. I'm going to talk a little bit about the advantages
and disadvantages of both and these are both the treatments that are used that kill will
90% of women have the Candida Albicans Yeast. So that's the most common, and these are over
the counter medications that will actually the antifungal medications that will actually
kill that Yeast.

So, let's start first of all with the cream. So, the cream is these are called the Azoles,
that will be Azoles, A-Z-O-L-E-S. So the cream is a canister and cream. And the cream actually is applied usually
using an applicator and inserted vaginally. It comes normally as a one day, three-day,
or a seven-day treatment, and, what it does is, it actually can actually provide a lot
of soothing for some women. Some women find it messy however, and they
so that's why it's best to use it at night, or it also comes in like a pessary form that
can also be inserted hide the vagina to that isn't quite as messy.

However, some women do find that they get
a burning associated with this and so equally as effective is the oral medication. Now, this is it's Floconazole or die Flocon. This is the Canesten brand and this again
comes with a single tablet form and the single tablets used for mild to moderate severity,
thrush or vaginal yeast infection. Now, once again, there's advantages or disadvantages
to this medication. The advantage is that it doesn't actually
cause them the messiness that we've already talked about with the cream, and also to you're
not going to get that burning sensation. However, for some women, it can cause nausea,
and also to interact with other medications and can have effects on other systems in the
body. So this is a medication that you want to discuss
with your pharmacist or your doctor before taking.

So, you have two options and it's actually
quite interesting to some of the new packages come as a duo. So they actually come with the cream, so there's
the cream here, and also to with the tablet. So that's a newer type of Canesen it's available
as well. So both those the oral medication or the cranes
are equally as effective. You usually notice that symptoms start to
ease within three days of starting the medication, and then it normally takes a good seven days
to resolve. Now, what to do, if it doesn't resolve? First thing to do is go to your doctor, it
may well be that you're not treating yeast infection at all, it might be something completely
different. And what your doctor will do was take a swab
of just some of the internal fluid in a sample inside your vagina and that will be sent to
the lab and cultured, and they will look at what type of yeast is actually growing there
if it is a yeast, or determine what the actual problem is.

Remembering that also to some of the other
causes of vaginal yeast infections and some of the reasons that we get recurrent into
vaginal infections due to other factors such as low iron, decreased immunity, cigarette
smoking, cannabis, tart wearing tight latex underwear, that's not a latex, gay that's
not breathable, panty liners, all those sorts of things and even Candida can even adhere
to IUDs or some intrauterine contraceptive devices. So it's really important that you speak to
your doctor if you're not getting resolution with your over the counter medications. So, we've gone through quite a bit there haven't
we? We've talked about, first of all, we talked
about what the yeast is, a single cell microorganism that exists on the body on the skin, we talked
about the ways to get immediate relief, and we talked about the antihistamine and we talked
about the hydrocortisone cream just to be used outside and just for short term, we talked
about some of the myths, the home myths that your best to avoid, and then the best way
to get relief, and to treat the the vaginal yeast infection for good through over the
counter remedies.
