A few years ago i worked in a kitchen environment and a candy store. Ok obviously i had a bad diet... i developped a rash on the side of my hand. water made it worse and perhaps the plastic gloves for candy didnt help. this rash persisted for over half a year and disappeared only by moving up my pinkie. there it became obvious that aside from cracking skin that there were tiny pimple like bumps.

My dad got me cortisone cream and it flared. apparently i found out at that time that cortisone feeds yeast! i got to thinking i had a yeast infection on my hand!!! i did try ACV it brought relief but i think the infection was too deep. Or that the ACV would of worked better mixed with a cream... it would clear to reemerge once the skin became dryer again. I was so convinced it was a yeast infection...

One day i told my dentist what i thought and she helped me get some cold sore medication... nyaderm/betaderm.. just to say it was antifungal!!! after 3 days the rash never came back.... i know its not a natural cure but just to say had i made a something with garlic or you know something antifungal the rash would of left.

since that time ive formed a belief that almost all health problems stem from mycotoxins or fungus/yeast living in human tissue. i still have a coated tongue and in my best efforts have only been able to partially clear it up. sucking on a tablet for candida did clear it up for a few hours, enough for hope but yeah thats expensive.

For Thrush, the white coating in your mouth, I have found a good way to stop it for me. First, I brush my teeth as normal in the morning. Important! Upon waking do not swallow any spit (sorry). The spit (IMO) is FULL of candida, the white stuff, especially in the mornings. If I swallow anything, it fuels my gut candida and virginia candida overgrowth, I think. But, anyway, the second crucial part is this: I get some Listerine, or store brand of it, and put in a normal cup-full of it in my mouth. Now, for the fun part! I brush my teeth again gently - the gums, the nooks, the crannys, the toungue, back of the mouth as far as I can get, etc. - to get as much surfaces in my mouth brushed with the mouthwash in there. Yes, I lean over the sink and tend to drool, but I've gotten better at it with practice. My eyes can water from the sting, since it takes me over a minute to get all my surfaces, but I figure the tears go down the back of my throat and help wash things. I end up rinsing and rinsing with water afterwards just to get rid of the stinging, but its all worth it. I have found that the stubborn white coating cant be rinsed with just a half a minute of swishing; it needs to be brushed out!

The benefit of doing this twice a day for a couple days and then daily for a week or so gives me great results all through my body. This means that my digestion returns to normal (no longer constipated) and my vaginal yeasty beasty virgina dies down. In addition, I do take Femdophilus (refrigerated acidophilus from Whole Foods) twice/three times a day when I have a flair. (Once at night normally). I also take Azo Yeast (from any drug store) 4 times a day with a flair (twice a day normally). I have taken Diflucan in the past, once daily for thirty days to get rid of candida. This regimen works just as good for me! The only times I seem to have a flair now-a-days is when I run out of the Azo or the 'dophilus for more than a couple days. You'd think I'd learn...

Antibiotics and Yeast Infections

Posted by Ac (Houston, Tx) on 05/24/2013

I'm so miserable right now. I thought I had a UTI since I get them frequently and took the extra round of dose my doctor gave me just in case I got the UTI back. I did not see a discharge. As soon as I took the first day of antibiotics I saw the discharge and I knew I had made a mistake taking the antibiotic. 3 days of the yeast infection suppository treatment and no relief! It did not work this time. The cream that comes with it is also not helping me. I'm super uncomfy and want to go home. I will definitly go out during lunch to get the pills and yogurt. I pray this helps me.

What helps me is taking a non-dairy probiotic at least two hours after the antibiotic. I was advised by the pharmacist not to take them any closer together because the antibiotic kills the beneficial flora.

Caprylic acid is your friend. I buy the 500mg stuff, and take 3-5 capsules a day if I have an infection. Usually knocks it out in a few days. Than I take two caps a day for another five days. Also, coconut oil works better than any otc cream for the discomfort.

ACV for Yeast Infection

Miraculous. Lifesaver. I have had a couple less severe yeast infections in the past that cleared up with OTC clotrimazol or fluconazol (available as an oral tablet in UK pharmacies) after a couple days, but this time had a horrible infection that wouldn't clear with pharmacy medication. Went to gyno who diagnosed BV and yeast infection occurring at the same time, and prescribed antibiotic vaginal pessary x5 days for the BV + fluconazol x2 pills 3 days apart. The treatment cleared up the BV symptoms (awful smell and excessive watery discharge) but the yeast symptoms continued and worsened. For over 8 days I have had unbearable itching, swelling, burning, tenderness and discomfort. Nothing helped and following the dual medication course of treatment, it had gotten even worse. Finally found the ACV cure on this website yesterday morning. I started out soaking a towel/tissue in ACV and pressing this to my vaginal area (as well as a little bit inside vagina) for about 30-60 seconds at a time – this burned like crazy for a couple minutes but provided relief for a few hours. I did it three times throughout the day yesterday but was disappointed it was only alleviating the symptoms and not curing/killing the yeast.

Then last night, I decided to try the soak – I poured a cup of ACV into a basin of hot water and sat in it for only about 5 mins before bed. Woke up this morning feeling 99% cured!!! It's been almost half a day and no more itching or tenderness, just a feeling of dryness that I'm hoping will pass after awhile. Will do the ACV soak once more this evening and feeling confident that I will be finally yeast free! SO THANKFUL for this lifesaving remedy

I don't get frequent yeast infections, but the few I've had have been almost unbearable. Recently I was so miserable and over a weekend no way to see a doctor except the ER. So I looked it up and found Apple Cider Vinegar. I soaked a clean washcloth in very warm water then poured the ACV onto the cloth and placed it between my legs as the yeast was between my legs, and up to the vulva, sorry to be so graphic, but if this can help someone. So be it. In a few minutes the horrible itching stopped and became bearable. I used it over the weekend and saw my Gyn on Minday & got except for Diflucan. Told her about ACV and she said it was great for use just be sure and dilute it. I also get yeast under my breasts and I started using it there too. It works. I've also heard you can dilute and gargle with it for sore throats. I can NOT USE MONISTAT or the normal creams, they are like setting my privates on FIRE but the ACV really worked for me. I'm keeping it from now on for "just in case" emergencies.

After the last few days of discomfort and pain, and all of the above that everyone else has experienced, I debated to go buy the over the counters, etc and after stumbling upon this post and saying to myself, what the heck- it can't make it worse, I tried and oh man am I glad I did!!

I first tried the warm cloth soaked in Apple Cider Vinegar and you indeed see the yeast that way to identify the problem it and helps with the outer itching being relieved.

After a few hours I began to feel the pain again and itching so I decided the tampon method. After figuring out how to get it up there already soaked, the intense burn came and my goodness everyone was right, that sucker burned like heck! I am using the 5% and diluted a bit more in water.

Once out after about 10 min, because I was a baby on the pain of the burn, you instantly see and smell the issue right there but now after sitting for a few minutes and as I type, it has amazing results. I feel a million times better and will be going about this treatment till the symptoms are gone! Thanks ladies for the help and I'm happy to have found this earth clinic forum!!!

Apple Cider Vinegar for yeast infection

I used the ACV due to an unbearable feeling of wanting to pull my hair out and scream. ACV immediately stopped the burning and itching. I seem to get itchy around period time but seems more frequent now and it drives my crazy! I noticed that it has happened since I switched my birth control. I had the Mirina and now on pills. I feel like this is a contributing factor.

Thank God for natural healings! Also, thank God for informative natural healing sites such as this one!! I've got yeast infection about 3-4 times my whole life. I'm 27 as of now. A few days after sex I started feeling very itchy, I hadn't been sexual in so long but it seems like almost every time I have sex with a new person I get BV or YI. I know what they feel like so I was able to diagnose myself. We all know the itchy uncomfortable feeling internally and externally.

DAY 1 TAMPON: Per my research I decided to use ACV.. I tried soaking w/tampon, the way it expanded before entering made it feel uncomfortable inside plus I've always heard tampons are bad so I tossed it! I separated a water ACV mix almost every time I used the bathroom, maybe worked a little, not enough for satisfaction. So I suffered.

DAY 2 AFTERNOON DOUCHE: I've never douched before but I bought Summer's ever, poured solution out and filled 50/50 water and organic ACV while in the shower. It stung for a few seconds then felt so good as it stopped the Itching, only for a few hours as it felt like it got worst after 2 hrs (Not blaming acv) (I'm also drinkin ACV 3x a day) Night time I douched again, also poured the little I didn't get from the douche over my vagina while standing. It felt so much better while in the shower, only 40% better and hr or 2 later. Same day after night time shower I wasn't satisfied still even though a little better.. So I decided to bathe. BATH So I gave up trying to avoid using my roommates bathtub (I only have a shower) and decided to do what I also kept reading works. Hot/warm water bath a little pass my ankles. Poured a little under 16oz of ACV towards my vagina while sitting in. I also added some Himalayan pink salt just because I know salt baths are good. MAN DID I FEEL 99% better while in there for 30 mins, I sat with my legs open in the birth giving position. I actually started writing this while in the tub! Lol :) I've been out for 30 minutes now, I now feel about 80-85% cured, because I'm use to feeling 100 down there 24/7 I maybe being a little sensitive/stingy with the percentage but I could definitely go out if I had to but after that bath and me going through heck all day id rather rest just in case, I'm kind of scared to do anything extra because I'm so at ease at the moment I don't want anything to bring the itchy feeling back tonight!

I'll douche again in the shower tomorrow morning and night, maybe I'll get in the bath again too not sure. I'll definitely drink 2 tablespoons of ACV 3x a day for the next week, after that I'll drink it at least once a day and make it apart of my lifestyle. There's so many other benefits! Thanks for taking the time to read! I'll try to update :)

I used to use hydrocortisone cream to treat razor bumps in my bikini area. I found out the hard way that this can result in yeast infections - cortisol is like steroids for yeast! I found myself with my first yeast infection a day or two after applying the hydrocortisone cream.

I mixed up a solution of 50% each water and ACV, dipped a tampon in for a few seconds, then inserted it in my vagina. This burns like no other, but once the burn goes away, the itching is gone completely! Note that this can be drying, so don't leave the tampon in for too long. After inserting the tampon, I would then dip a cotton ball in the solution and clean up the yeast gunk from my labia. I would do this a few times a day, whenever I felt itchiness or had yeast buildup. The yeast infection was gone in less than a week, never to return again.

I also bought some acidophilus tablets and would take the maximum dosage per day, so this might have helped. I did insert one tablet inside my vagina and left it overnight, but it didn't dissolve very well, so I didn't try it again and just stuck with the ACV.

I have recently (within the last month) started taking anywhere from 1 tsp 1X a day to 1 tsp 3X per day, depending on my level of stuffiness. I have been taking it for my allergies and digestive issues) of Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Both my allergies and digestive issues are GREAT now.

I am having hormone imbalance issues (totally unrelated to the ACV) but because of my age. (entering Peri-menopause)

I have now gotten a yeast infection (I think...still need to get in to the doctor to be sure since we first thought I had a UTI but the test for that was negative) and I haven't had one since I was pregnant with my youngest child (who is now 18 years old)

Has ANYONE had anything like this happen? I am wondering if the ACV, along with the hormone imbalance has caused this issue?

I understand that ACV is supposed to kill candida but could this be a die-off issue? I have not cut sweeteners out of my diet (I don't eat junk or processed food but I do consume raw honey, raw cane sugar (on occasion) and 100% maple syrup.

Any advice????

Thank God for this site! I suffer from a number of chronic disorders and recently had to go on a course of antibiotics. This gave me one raging yeast infection, the likes of which I've never had. At one point I was putting cold packs down there in the middle of the night in between bouts of tears because the itching was so intense. I bought a generic Monistat kit, but all it did was give me serious cramps, nausea, and made me so miserable I would have rather sufffered from the flu I'd had! Then I found your site and about how Apple Cider Vinegar might help with my symptoms. I soaked in the bath and that helped stop the itch, but about an hour later I started feeling it again. So I soaked a cotton ball and put it up against my vag. The first minute or so, the burn was crazy, but once it subsided, there was no more itch! I think now that I can finally stop scratching, I'll be able to heal. Thank you SO MUCH for all the advice, I've been miserable for days. Acv is a miracle cure!

Hello ladies, I suffered for years with vaginal yeast infections. I was convinced it was sugar related. Then, in solidarity with my hubby who has gout, I started to DRINK 2 teaspoons ACV at night before bed (mixed in 1/2 cup water). This cured me!!!! I have since found out that the PH of my body was off due to too much caffeine and stress. We focus sometimes too much on curing the symptoms, when the PH balance of the whole body is the answer. Don't forget to rinse teeth after drinking as ACV can damage your teeth. God Bless and hope this helps you as much as it had helped me.

I have been using organic ACV, diluted with water, soaked on a cloth and just held on the affected areas, to treat a yeast infection. I was completey raw and red and itching from my pelvis bone to my tail bone, the ACV helped with that but now my skin is so dry where I applied it, it is flakng and raw..... Has anyone else experienced this, and what did you do to help with the extra dry skin???

Hi Bev,

I have been struggling with dry skin for many years, especially during winters. For the last eight months I have been using Glysolid and it's been wonderful. It's made in Germany and available on Amazon and it doesn't cost the earth. No fragrance, no fancy oil etc, just a smooth, silky white cream that coats my skin like an invisible barrier. Sorry for the ad-like prose. But this cream is truly amazing!

I have been having recurring yeast infections for about 9 years. I came across your site and after reading the "testimonials" decided it cant hurt to try ACV. I want to add that I had placed about a 2 inch piece of aloe vera (the middle gel-like part) in my "vv" for the last 2 nights. It helped to soothe the itching but the yeast has not gone away. in fact, it started to itch more today. I am broke so I am gonna give ACV a try. I plan to use 3 parts organic ACV to 1 part warm water this evening :

First in a douche while showering
And then I will insert a tampon soaked in the above solution
And wipe front to back
and let it sit for about 3 hours

I will repeat for 3 days and will let u know!

Okkkk... Report time. I took acidophilus 2 times during my "treatment" (and plan to continue once every other day)

First night.. Instead of the douche I used a mini turkey baster (my douche).. Added 1 part water (boiled and cooled) to 3 parts ACV.. It BURRNNNEDD!!! ..... BUT! It was not unbearable and after about 2 mins, it stopped and the itching stopped... And when the ACV ran out, ewwwww, cottage cheese that did not smell like me.. I also soaked a tampon in the ACV mix and left it in for about 3 hours, took a cotton ball and patted some of the ACV outside which, u guessed it, burned! I then took a shower and was able to sleep itch free (oh glory).

In the morning, I itched again (arg! ) so I filled my douche (cleaned with warm water) and squirted it up there with the ACV mixture, added what remained to a clean spray bottle and sprayed the outside.. Burn again but bearable.... During the day I saw clumps of discharge that smelled yeasty (and turned slightly green at one point) but experienced less itching

Second night... Did not experince much itching during the day, so I did the douche but not the tampon insert and sprayed the outside.. Burnnned, but lasted less this time... After about 30 mins I took a shower and went to bed.. Less clumpy stuff

In the morning, my discharge was wayyyy less clumpy and almost looked normal (was a bit thick still), so I did a douche and spray again (this is when I found out that ACV makes u dry, yikes! )

Third night.. Small itch during the day.. Did a douche and spray... I was ok for the most part, no itch at all

In the morning, I did a douche & spray

Fourth night... had guests everywhere so I had to put if off..

in the morning, I was itching, so I soaked a tampon in ACV sprayed the outside and left it in for about 1 hour... I dont want to overdo it so I will stop here

The relief is amazing... no itch and frankly the ACV has worked wayyyy better and faster than most of the inserts out there..

Will let u know if I am cured!

I have been reading all this advice, and no one has ever mentioned how drying the ACV is, I used it diluted with water on a cloth and just blotted the itchy, sore areas.... Only did it three times and my skin has dried so much where I blotted I have lost the first layer of skin! But I will say the itch and burning was gone, for the last few days, but as I type this I can feel it creeping back, and I am afraid to use the vinegar again, on my raw skin. I have tried coconut oil on it and some aveeno lotions, but I am still pretty raw. Just wondering if this happens to everyone and they just are not mentioning it? Or is it just me?

For me, ACV only works so-so for yeast infections. Boric acid is very effective against yeast.... I've used coconut oil on a cotton ball and put a light sprinkling of boric acid (pharm grade) on it (you can buy it on amazon, etc). Wipe down the area whenever you feel the itch. Works wonders for me!

For the lady that is RAW from pelvic bone to tailbone.... I've had recurrent yeast infections for the last 30 years & I've never been RAW with dry itchy skin. Yeast infections make you ITCH horribly INSIDE & on all of your moist Labia areas then you get a white cheesy like gunk inside. If you have sex, rub or scratch the area, it begins to burn & itch worse. What you have may not be a yeast infection at all, so GO TO A DOCTOR! There are FREE public health nurses, health departments, birth control centers & charities that will help you. PS- Ive never used ACV for yeast infections, only white distilled vinegar diluted with water.

After years of dealing with yeast infections, my new midwife said that some women deal with yeast infections consistently, and that some women can have one after every period because of a ph imbalance your period causes. Not all women have the same symptoms and many things may cause a yeast infection for one and not for another.

Here are my personal experiences:

I notice a major shift when I start eating more processed foods, and that it lightens or clears when I eat all vegetables and little sugary fruits.

I have never itched or burned, but have always had a discharge and a yeast smell. I have had BV, but I always get YI.

I keep a spray bottle with diluted tea tree oil and water on the back of the toilet, and when I go to the bathroom, I spritz everything. It feels great and feels clean. Tea tree smells more fresh than spraying Apple Cider Vinegar. I will also insert some of the tea tree/water solution in my vagina and it makes a huge difference.

Priobiotics: I started taking a 15 billion non-refrigerated probiotic that I purchased from a large natural and whole foods store. It comes in a pink box. This has been the best probiotic I have ever taken, and I have taken a lot.

Women's Whole Food Multi: I also take a food based whole foods women's multi 2x day (says 3x, I'm doing good just to remember to take 2).

Douche: I am going to try a Tea Tree Oil and/or Apple Cider Vinegar douche to see if I can get more of the root of the problem with the discharge - which is my main problem.

  • 2 Tbls. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 8 oz. Warm Water
  • Douche 2x day

    Perhaps this will help someone too!

    Hi Ashley, A great way of geting rid of parasites & fungus is drinking copper water & all that you do is pour water into a copper container overnight & drink 4 glasses the next morning when you awake & during the day. I tried a lot of fancy things to get rid of the nasties & am getting good results but here comes the jughie part part because these nasties tend to sink to the bottom of the toilet so you have to use a fork to dig them out to see if you are getting them out of your system. Now copper kills everything, search the net.

    Try drinking Kefir once a day. Purchase at health food store or grocery, or get kefir seeds from someone and they will make kefir in 24 hour from 1% milk or thicker milk. Kefir has 1000 times more probiotics/good bacterias than yogurt. It works if you drink it every day. I even mix with orange juice because I dislike the taste. You may need another option to get rid of infection initially but drinking this everyday keeps it away for ever. Search it on the internet.

    So, I was on anti biotics cause of strep, and it ended up giving me a yeast infection. I was so not happy. AFter trying everythinggg I could think of. I finally decided to give this ACV thing a shot. I went a local HEB (super market in Texas) and bought raw ACV. In a small spray bottle, I poured about 1oz of hot water, and 3oz of the ACV. While in the shower, I sprayed my vaginal area until I could feel the ACV dripping down my legs. (my shower smells like vinegar :P) It burned for a few moments, but I already started feeling better. When I got out of the shower, I refilled the bottle because I had used most of it, but no water this time; just the ACV. I soaked a tampon in it and inserted it for about 30 min, and sprayed my vaginal area once more until I could feel it burning. While sitting down, I could actually feel the intense burning from the ACV in my vagina.. Let' sjust saying it really did suck. But after I took it out, I felt tons better. This stuff actually worked. So glad I gave in to it. I'm going to do this for another three days and see how everything works out.

    I am 27, and have had yeast infections several times a year since I started dating my ex. They went away when I stopped dating him, and I'm pretty sure he has a yeast issue himself. I also struggle with fatigue, toenail fungus, anxiety and digestive issues that make me believe my problem is candida. I don't eat processed foods and eat very little sugar or carbs. I wanted to address my other issues, so I started drinking the organic with mother ACV and baking soda combo, 2tbsps ACV with 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, twice a day. Within 3 days I had a raging yeast infection. I cut out the baking soda and maintained the ACV drink and went with 50/50 ACV douches, morning and night. The second morning, it was worse than ever, swollen and painful and itching. Garlic helped stop the itch. In any case, this is the 2nd or 3rd time that drinking ACV has brought on a yeast infection, in my opinion.

    Perhaps it would have resolved had I continued, but I'm going camping for 3 weeks and cannot be dealing with this out there. I'll be taking diflucan in the morning. Maybe I'm just not one that can handle it, though it does help when I use it externally and I do think it makes me more regular and more perky. Wish I could do it!

    It was likely a die-off reaction. It was discovered that I had candida so I had to start an intense detox. Even though I had not suffered from a yeast infection, after starting the detox, I got a yeast infection and thrush. Just have to fight through it. It was eventually all cleared up but it took a few weeks to subside.

    It's because you drank it everyday. The ACV is too strong and too acidic for everyday uses. Try using once or twice each week. I witnessed the same problems used for break outs, now I use once a week and have beautiful skin with no yeast infections :)

    It's not when drinking the RAW organic kind (with mother in it). Like lemons and limes, they are acidic yet alkalizing when ingested.

    Given your digestive issues, Anxiety and toe nail fungus you may want to look into leaky gut syndrome. I am on a diet called GAPS which targets healing leaky gut that would most likely cause all the issues you have written here. It is intensive and required a commitment but looks like you have already altered your diet so this may not be as much of a change for you. I highly recommend looking into it. It would be a total full body healing and should irradiate all those issues.

    Hi, so sorry for your suffering and wondering if maybe douching 50/50 acv/water ratio was a way bit much of the acv?.

    Replied by Sm

    The problem was the baking soda, not the ACV. Baking soda PROMOTES yeast growth.

    Replied by Ginger
    (Tulsa, OK)

    Consuming the ACV didn't cause a raging yeast infection. You likely were experiencing your body purging the yeast. Our wombs are self-cleaners and whenever taking anti-fungals, the body will remove it the best means possible (via excretion, skin, discharge, etc).


    I recently learned that Candida...ingenious and elusive as it is, thrives in an ALKALINE environment! Many a time I have run across the lone voice in the wilderness here saying the ACV was not helping them or was causing them issues with their many ailments as it seemed to be miraculously curing everything for everyone else. I too have more trouble than not when using ACV. It is more than likely the ACV could have in fact been exacerbating her problem.
