    My doctor has actually suggested this to me. She told me to try using PLAIN yogurt. The natural bacteria in it helps get rid of the overgrowth of yeast. And I don't believe that you will get maggots inside of you if you put yogurt there. You need flys to get maggots. So unless you're letting flys get access to down there I don't think you have anything to worry about. I understand this isn't for you, only a question from reading another post but, if you ever get one and if you have health insurance. Go to your doctor and ask about Diflucan. It's only 4 dollars at walmart pharmacy! Much easier and cheaper than the OTC treatments.

    Hello, I'm on the second week and seeing definite improvement on my yeast infection symptoms:

    Note that: If the yeast infection doesn't respond to over the counter treatment, prescription medication will likely be necessary. Similarly, if the symptoms return after two months of being treated, you should contact the doctor for professional treatment rather than resorting again to home treatment.

    If this is the first time you have experienced a yeast infection, you should schedule an appointment to have the condition treated by a doctor instead of resorting to home treatment

    Yogurt has live cultures than can kill the bacteria causing the itch.

    There is a much more efficient way to take care of that though. Get some Monistat that has a little tube of anti-itch cream with it.

    The Monistat will have the yeast infection gone in no time, and the cream really relieves the itch.

    Yes, you're supposed to eat the yogurt. I wouldn't put yogurt there because the yogurt likely has a lot of sugar in it, and that feeds the yeast. Instead, go to a pharmacy and get Monistat to treat the yeast infection. Nowadays, they have, in addition to the suppositories, a bit of extra cream to spread around your vulva to relieve itching by killing the yeast.

    that's kind of an old remedy. it's suppose to neutralize the ph of the vag. but it has to be plain yogurt with live cultures to be beneficial... not like the strawberrry yoplait or anything haha. so i guess you could try it, or you could just take a lactobacillus and use an otc cream.
