Both synthetic materials and tight-fitting apparel are problematic. Tight clothing and undergarments restrict airflow and also trap moisture and heat. Yeast thrives in that sort of damp environment. Lighter materials made of natural fibers are a better choice. One easy way to get rid of a yeast infection in a natural way is to create a wash that is made up of hydrogen peroxide and water. The peroxide will help to kill the yeast. So, think about splashing several cupfuls of hydrogen peroxide into your next bath.
If you find out you have a yeast infection, make sure you have your partner tested, as well. Yeast infections are passable from person to person, and both partners should be treated. Ask your doctor if your partner needs medication also. Thoroughly dry your vagina. Yeast flourishes in a damp environment, so you want to create arid conditions whenever possible. After bathing, make sure you thoroughly dry your vagina. A blow dryer can also be used to ensure that you have gotten every nook and cranny in the area dry.
A tampon soaked with yogurt and a few drops of oil from a tea tree might help with vaginal yeast infections. Insert your tampon like you would normally after soaking it. You can leave it in for a few hours to help relieve irritation and burning.
