IT'S ITCHY DOWN THERE! 5 Natural Remedies for Itch and Yeast Infection



I can say personally that one of the tortures of being a woman is the vaginal itch and yeast infection. I know most of the women will agree on this statement. According to studies, 3 out of 4 women suffers from vaginal itch and/or yeast infection, and sadly to say but I belong to that number. Yeah, It is ITCHY down there! Whenever my monthly period would come or about to end, or whenever I am stressed out, I expect that this problem will come. Itch and yeast infection are caused by changing of hormones like approaching or ending of menstrual period, suffering from physical and emotional stress, and coming to menopausal stage.

The severity of vaginal itch and yeast infection varies from mild to intense itchiness. I recommend that for women who suffer moderate to intense itchiness to consult the gynecologist immediately. For mild cases, I suggest the following 5 natural remedies that I have tried:

1. Eating yogurt. Yeast infection happens due to the imbalance of hormone and acidity in that part. So in order to balance it, we need the live bacteria present in yogurt. Eating a cup of yogurt every day helps to stop the yeast infection from recurring.

2. Apple cider Vinegar. For immediate relief from itchiness, pour 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a  shallow dish, then put 2 tablespoon of water. Dip the cotton on the mixture and dab it on the affected area. This will cause some burning sensation for some seconds. Vinegar will kill the bacteria that cause itchiness.

3. Garlic. Another immediate relief for itchiness is by using garlic. Peel 1 clove of garlic, then crush it till the juice comes out. Place the juice of the garlic in a shallow dish and put drops of water. Dip the cotton and dap on affected area. This will cause burning sensation which is more painful than apple cider vinegar but I swear that you just need to apply this once and the itchiness will go away forever (till you are again affected by it).

4. Baking soda. Add a tablespoon of baking soda to a dipper  full of water and use this to wash the private area.

5. Peroxide. This is the liquid medicine like Betadine that you use in washing wounds. Pour a capful to a quarter-full of water in a dipper and use this to wash the private area. Use regularly until the itchiness disappear.

Aside from those remedies, make sure not to use soap with perfume, also a non-cotton underwear is a no-no. Shaving the area is also a good as the bacteria will not reside on the hair. Keeping oneself clean always and eating healthy food are also the big help in avoiding vaginal itch and yeast infection.

My friend (he's a doctor) says that yogurts are very helpful in this case! So, no wonder it is top 1 in your list! :)

If you suspect you have vaginal yeast infection and is the first time it is recommended that you visit your gynecologist and get it checked for yeast infection treatment.

Thanks for that list. Some of us always experience this kind of allergy in our skin. It's good to know that there are alternatives like these to prevent itch and yeast infection.
