Apple Cider Vinegar Yeast Infection Remedy

Updated on March 2, 2010

Yeast infections are common to most people but they are known to commonly affect women. Yeast is a form of fungus and it thrives in moist areas such as the areas around the vagina or the mouth. For many years, the apple cider vinegar yeast infectionremedy has been used to cure and mitigate the effects of yeast infections.

An apple cider vinegar yeast infection solution can be used both internally and externally depending on the nature of the yeast infection and where it is. A yeast infection on a woman may have far-reaching repercussions. It affects her social life and may even affect them psychologically. One feels much pain while passing urine and when having sex. The affected area also feels an unpleasant irritation, which is accompanied by a smelly discharge. The symptoms of the infection are numerous but an apple cider vinegar yeast infectionremedy can work miracles to any one suffering from the infection.

One can make their own applecider vinegar yeast infection solution at home and by following some instructions, administer treatment to themselves till the symptoms have diminished. Better still; the solution can be used to treat a wide range of ailments. To come up with your own apple cider vinegar medication at home, you should begin by crushing some apples and then collecting their juice. The juice is then fermented to make alcohol, which is then converted to vinegar.

Once the apple cider vinegar yeast infectionremedy has been prepared, then the affected person can use it on the infected area through two common ways. The first one is by bathing in it, while the second way is called douching. To bathe in it, you need to put some warm water in a bath and then add about two cups of the vinegar. When the mixture has been thoroughly mixed, you then immerse the infected area of your body and stay there for some minutes as the apple cider vinegar yeast medication solution works on the infected area. Many are the times that the vinegar has a burning sensation and if the sensation becomes too much to bear, one can add more plain water or some garlic to lessen it. However, adding garlic is better since the solution is not diluted, and so the sensation is lessened while retaining the concentration of the vinegar medication.

An apple cider vinegar yeast infection remedy can also be administered through douching. Here, you take a cotton wool and then put it in the vinegar, where you then wipe the affected area gently ensuring you circle the cotton wool effectively. This method is more effective and has quicker results.

Anyone with yeast infection ought not to rely fully on this remedy to cure it, but should rather address the main causes, which may include unhygienic or regular moistness in affected areas. During infection, one should avoid unprotected sex since the infection can be transmitted. Lose and absorbent clothing can be used to keep you warm and free from any moisture in any part.
