Yeast infection is commonly called “candidiasis” which is a fungal infection that ranges from superficial to systematic and potentially life-threatening disease. It has been plaguing not only women but also men and even children. There are ways how to cure a yeast infection safely.
During a lifetime, 75% of women are likely to contact at least one type of candida vaginal infection and around 45% will suffer from two or more kind. Women are more likely to have one because their vaginas being dark and moist are the ideal environment for yeast infection. Women’s bodies are often under stress due to poor nutrition, lack of sleep, during pregnancy or taking antibiotics.
Many sufferers resort to remedies available in drugstores and OTC such as creams, suppositories and others.
Antifungal medicines can treat vaginal yeast infections. They are inserted directly into the vagina as tablets, creams, ointments and suppositories. They include: butoconazole (Femstat), clotrimazole (Clotrimaderin, Canesten), miconazole (Monistat, Monozole, and Micozole), nystalin (several brand names), triconazole (Gyne Cure) and terconazole (Terazole). One dose of oral fluconazole (Deflucon Oral) may also be used except for pregnant women.
Treatment for your bedmate may not be necessary for most yeast infections are not transmitted sexually. However, if the penis of your sexual partner shows signs of redness and itchiness, you should consult your health provider.
The root cause of the infection is the existence of the yeast spores that get into your body and more specifically the factors that allow them to develop and multiply in your system. When spores are eliminated permanently, then you are cured.
Although these drugs are dispensed without prescription but it is a requirement that they are to be used only for the repeated treatment of infection not for the first exposure. For those infected for the first time, they have to consult their doctor for it may not be yeast infection but sexually transmitted disease.
You should consider that medicines and drugs purchased over-the-counter (OTC) are only for the temporary relief of symptoms. They do not give permanent cure for yeast infection will continue to recur. More men and women have been disappointed with doctor’s prescription and pharmaceutical drugs as treatment for their infection, not only for their short-termed effects but also potential adverse effects.

Yogurt is one of the most effective food that helps you rid of the infection. You must drink plenty of water/liquid, at least 8 glasses a day. Refrain from food containing lots of sugar. Consume plenty of veggies and fruit. Do not wear tight underclothing and stop regular douching.
