Yeast infection means fungal overgrowth. Vaginal yeast infections are one of the most common reasons women seek healthcare. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Fight the fungus

    To stop an active infection, use over-the-counter antifungal agents like clotrimazole (Lotrimin, Gyne-Lotrimin 3) or miconazole (Micatin, Monistat-7), or see your doctor for prescription antifungal medicine, such as nystatin (Mycostatin, Nilstat), ketoconazole (Nizoral), and fluconazole (Diflucan)

  • Switch to cotton underwear

    Avoid the increased risks of yeast infection associated with nylon underwear and tights

  • Try beneficial bacteria

    To prevent the overgrowth of yeast organisms, eat yogurt containing live acidophilus cultures daily, and use acidophilus topically as vaginal suppositories or a douche

  • Ask about problem medicines

    Discuss with your doctor whether you can avoid taking antibiotics, oral contraceptives, or adrenal corticosteroids (such as prednisone) that may lead to yeast infection
