As you read what you can do to cure yeast infection bear in mind that, the human body is home to many different kinds of bacteria. Some of these bacteria are good while others are bad. Yeast infection is linked to Candida albicans -a fungus often found in the vagina and some other parts of the body.

  • Make provision for air to get to your private part
  • Avoid wearing tight jeans
  • Wear full cotton underwear

Your doctor can diagnose and confirm whether its yeast infection you have. Your doctor will most likely prescrive an anti-fungal - It is the most common type of medication he or she will prescribe. Sometimes its one pill. You can also purchase an over the counter drug like monistat at any pharmacy. Medications come in the form of a cream or pill.
