Applying Yogurt to Treat Yeast Infections!

At one time there was a post in this forum that asked if using yogurt for a yeast infection by applying it to the infected area work. Well I was too late to post in this forum having just becoming a member of this forum, but for those who are interested in whether such thing does work. I have actually done this, and yes it does work, at least it did for me. I did as recommended and used plain yogurt with live cultures. I'm not saying that I recommend doing this to everyone the only reason I did it was because I have had little or not success with the yeast infection cures on the market. So I was looking for a natural alternative. So just for everyone to know there are those who have actually used this method with success, well at least I did.

Yep, it does work!

Just make sure you get PLAIN yogurt. You don't want to add any with fruit down there, ew. Even getting vanilla yogurt isn't a good idea....it's sweetened. You want it to actually say 'plain' on the tub/container/cup.

Yes, yogurt is quite helpful for yeast infections, which I used to get alot. This was actually suggested to me many years ago by my gynecologist. :)

Plain yogurt is the best way to treat this type of fungal infection if you ask me! Better than the prescribed creams in my case! Also, taking a antihistamine tablet or medicine will reduce the feelings of itching and will stop the affected area feeling swollen. Seriously, since I was told to take antihistamine if I had an outbreak my life has changed.

RE: Applying Yogurt to Treat Yeast Infections!

Not quite sure I understand this treatment. Are you guys saying to apply plain yogurt directly inside the vaginal area? Or does one just smooth some on the outer lips?

How much should one use?

How many applications does it take to see results?

Does the yogurt eventually evaporate inside the vagina?

Do you need to wear a pad to prevent leakage?

These may all sound like dumb questions, but I really would like some answers. Thanks.

According to a study the live-culture bacteria reduces the risk of being infected in the future. The Lactobacillus acidophilus in Yogurt helps maintain good acid/alkaline balance. The Lactobacillus also finds its way to the vaginal canal and the populate it so that the yeast can’t.

I had many questions regarding your post. I was hoping someone would see and respond. I am quite interested in trying this type of therapy, but not sure exactly how it is done. Will someone help?

RE: Applying Yogurt to Treat Yeast Infections!

The plain yogurt treatment never worked for me. I have no idea why. Maybe it was because I didn't apply it directly to the vaginal area but instead sought to treat the internal problem by eating the yogurt instead. I did see some medication on Amazon and the reviews for the product were overwhelmingly good. Apparently this medication stopped the Candida dead in its tracks and many of the women have not had another case of Candida since, but I can't remember the name of the medication now. I will do a little bit more research and if I am able to find the name, I will post it here.

RE: Applying Yogurt to Treat Yeast Infections!

That's just crazy...I've never heard of this, I guess if I were desperate I'd try it, but I am rather skeptical about smearing any kind of food substance, especially one containing live active cultures, on my genitals. I'm happy it worked for others, but the idea of this freaks me out!

The Lactobacillus which is the live active culture can be ingested to the same effect. The whole treatment is actually ineffective if you develop a more severe infection. To be sure to fully kill off a yeast infection naturally so that it won't return you have to remove all sugars and starches from your diet for a 30-day period, eating mostly green vegetables and chicken/fish not stored in yeast while switching between the correct probiotics and antibiotics. At least the probiotics, to restore healthy intestinal flora that can fight off the naturally-occurring yeast. Don't sweat on putting yogurt on your genitals; just remember that Lactobacillus is the intestinal flora that keeps candida at bay until an imbalance causes an infection in the first place.
