Vaginal Yeast Infection Symptoms
*Swelling and redness
*White thick discharge is not a definite sign of a vaginal yeast infection.

Causes of Yeast Infection
*High sugar levels in urine
*High estrogen levels for example just before menstruation, during pregnancy or HRT therapy
*Smoking cigarettes or cannabis
*Clothing that traps moisture e.g. latex, waterproof incontinence underwear, pads or panty liners that trap moisture

Home Remedies for Thrush to Avoid
*Candida diet is not backed by scientific evidence
*Garlic is an antifungal treatment that burns vaginal tissues
*Tea tree oil lacks scientific evidence and can cause irritation and allergy
*Yogurt can soothe but is not an antifungal

Treatments for Vaginal Yeast Infection
Medications for immediate symptom relief:
*Antihistamines such as Zyrtec can help reduce itching
*Topical steroid cream with 1% hydrocortisone on the vulva can also reduce swelling, redness and itching (speak with your doctor)

The most common yeast infections from Candida Albicans overgrowth.Two forms of antifungal medications treat thrush:
*Oral medication
*Topical creams or pessary

Both are equally effective for treating Candida albicans which causes approximately 90% of vaginal yeast infections.

Topical over the counter medications to treat vaginal yeast infection are drugs known as azoles such as clotrimazole. Topical creams act locally in the vagina and don't cause nausea that the oral medication can cause. Some women experience burning when applied.

Oral medication is Fluconazole (Diflucan) where 1 dose is usually used for mild to moderate yeast infection. Oral antifungals can interact with other medications and may have other effects on the body systems. Check with your doctor or pharmacist first before taking oral antifungal medications.

How long for Vaginal Yeast Treatment to Work?
Symptoms usually start to ease within 3 days but may take a week to fully resolve.

How to Manage Recurrent Yeast Infection
When antifungal medications are ineffective see your doctor. Symptoms may not be caused by vaginal yeast infection or the yeast may not be treated by regular antifungal medications.
