yeast infections/treatment

Posted by Glenn on February 08, 1999 at 23:13:45:

I have been getting recurring vaginal yeast infections, I think mostly due to the fact that I've been given a lot of antibiotics for infected, inflamed tissue surrounding a pilonidal wound which keeps flaring up.

I have reading a bit in this site and in Dr. Stoll's book about CRS, and realize I have a lot more reading to do. But, I havent yet found any posts on topical solutions for yeast infection/itching.

While I'm reading up on the causes, is there anything aside from the usual monistat or expensive one-dose pill which can give temporary relief?

Hi, Glenn.

The main thing I think I can help you with here is the following:

Basically there are 2 kinds of fungi that can infect people, candida and all the others. The stuff that treats the other fungi does not treat candida and vice versa.

Your pharmasist would know which ones work for candida & which ones work for the other species.

Be sure what you are using topically is for candida and not the others. I have no alternative for internally.

ALSO, I have detailed this on this BB a number of times but I think it has been a couple of years so it might be hard for you to find:

Candida grows best in an alkaline environment where there is ample sugar, moisture, darkness and heat. Since the cervical secretion is almost pure glycogen ( a readily available form of glucose--for the nourishment of the sperm) the vagina would be a perfect place for candida to grow if it was not normally very acid. This is why every normal vagina is colonized by acidophilus germs that keep this vagina acid. Otherwise everyone on the planet, with a vagina, would have vaginal candidiasis. This is also the reason why antibiotics flare this up: it kills your acidophilus germs in the vagina.

This is why you hear of using vinegar douches and adding live acidophilus cultures to the solution.

MAKING SENSE YET?

So a high syringe douche with warm water and 1 tablespoon of distilled vinegar per quart along with about 6 billion acidophilus oraganisms/quart (see the lable on the powder in the freezer), used twice a day would help a lot.

Inserting a tampon that has been soaked in yogurt-plain of course-gives temporary relief from itching.

Dipping it in Nystatin or Acidophius works, too and is not nearly as messy!
