Will a Yeast Infection Go Away on Its Own?
A yeast infection can happen on various parts of the body but the most common place for women is the vagina, hence vaginal yeast infections are
more common yeast infection. They happen because of an overgrowth of a fungus called candida albicans. It is of great importance that the infection
is treated as soon as symptoms are observed, otherwise it will just take more time to cure.
The answer in fact is no, a yeast infection does not go away by itself. In fact if ignored the symptoms get worse. For example at first you might feel a
slight itchiness that is occasional, then you might find you have a discharge that is looking lumpy, white like cottage cheese. At this point you now have
a full infection and the area around the vagina called the vulva is sore and red. You may find when you urinate it burns and that it also burns during
sex and that there is an unpleasant odor.
The good news about having a yeast infection is that it is perfectly treatable. There is absolutely no need to live with the discomfort, the pain and the
embarrassment. Over ninety per cent of women get it at some point in their lives, some are unlucky enough to have recurring problems. Treatments
vary from lotions and creams to natural remedies to suppositories that have to be inserted into the vagina.
If you are interested in natural remedies there are many, including garlic, apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil and probiotic plain yogurt tampons. If you use
these at the early stages of the yeast infection you will find the pain is relieved and the yeast infection clears up in only a few days. If you have had the
infection for a longer time, natural remedies can still work, but they will take longer. One of the benefits from using natural over prescripted drugs is
that they will also act as preventative measures, whereas the drugs give relief that is temporary.
Whatever treatment you opt for early and quick action is the key to a quick cure. Natural remedies are probably the easiest choice to make becau
