You can easily go to a local supermarket or pharmacy and buy Monistat or some other OTC yeast infection treatment. Also, as a preventative measure, yogurt (eaten, not applied) is a great food that can ward off future infections.
However, keep in mind that a good percentage of women who think they have yeast infections, actually have some other minor infection or STD and although OTC drugs treat the itch and burning that comes with the infection, it may be likely that the infection can return or worse that you might be covering up something more serious and prolonging it. Also, if this is the second or third time that you've had a yeast infection, I would definitely go see a doctor to see if it's anything more than a regular yeast infection.

I've had yeast infections problem over 4 years. I tried everything, of course I went to the DR. about a hundred times, probably not that many, but it
sure seems like it. It never did any good for long and caused all kinds of other issues having to do with taking too many antibiotics. It wasn't until
I stumbled upon the information on this site
( http://bitly.com/Best-Yeast-Infection-Remedy-Offic... ), that my life changed completely. I'm feeling so much better now, my quality of life returned and
every one of the symptoms had gone.
Although yeast infection (known by the names of Candida, Monilia or Thrush) is in fact a very common condition, (as three out of four women develop it at some point
in their lifetimes), it is little discussed. Most people regard candida infection as a ‘on the surface’ problem that should be treated with creams and antibiotics whereas
few are aware of its potentially risky complications. So going to doctors it's a bad idea not because it makes you feel uncomfortable, it's because they will prescribe antibiotics
until something works, it could take even 1 year to treat a yeast infection like this.
To effectively overcome candida infection, you need to be aware of the real cause of yeast infection and be able to identify its symptoms. You need to know how to self-test
and diagnose your candida condition, learn about the dietary principals needed to maintain a candida free environment and about the complimentary treatments that will help you
battle against the negative effects and complications of your yeast infection.

You can't really "treat" a yeast infection at home; you can help alleviate symptoms. Some medicated douches will help, AZO Yeast tablets provide some relief AND serve as a preventative. Taking a daily probiotic is always helpful if you are prone to yeast infections. For TREATING a yeast infection, you'll likely need something like Diflucan.
Best of health to you! ~Namaste~

Hi Kelly the best thing that has always worked for me is to first remove all white bread from my diet (because they contain huge amounts of yeast) and then to drink an alkalizer that's what we call it I think you guys call it ant acid twice a day. If it is itchy and burning "down there" take 2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and mix it in a half a glass of warm water once it has all dissolved take cotton wool and soak it in the liquid while you are sitting on the loo squeeze the cotton wool over the area until all the liquid runs over the affected area repeat until all the liquid in the glass in finished do this as often as necessary, because it is a natural products there are no side effects. Hope this helps.
