yeast infection

Posted by sarahw on May 27, 2001 at 12:37:31:

If I'm pregnant, is there a natural way to get rid of a yeast infection? I've heard that other "pills" or "creams" may harm being pregnant. Also, my husband has a yeast infection too. What is the best thing to use for him?

your husband? on what ? his penis? thats odd.you are probably passing it back and forth. he could probaly take a dose of diflucan and get rid of his, hopefully its not systemic at this point. then he need to stay away from you until yours clears up. there are many natural yeast killers. some of which may be able to be applied topically- yogurt, caprylic acid, goldenseal, garlic, but be careful with sensitivity if applied topically.

My husbands symptoms are small reddish bumps and raw spots on his penis. I'm assuming we have the same thing because it happened the morning after we had sex, three days ago.

Hi Sarah,

Listen I don't want to sound alarming, but I think you should have your husband see a doctor for a diagnosis. You want to be sure what it is especially when you are pregnant.

Sorry, sarahw.

This condition is impossible to cure during pregnancy. All of the things, including conventional treatment, in the archives about this subject, will help keep it under control but that is all.

Of course, your husband is not pregnant so the topical anticandida creams, properly applied for the proper length of time, will resolve his. Wellness will prevent recurrance in his case and when you are finished with your pregnancy you can get at curing yours.

Let us know what you learn.

Walt
