How to treat a yeast infection – this is something that many women and men are trying to learn how to do. Yeast infections are caused by excessive candida albicans – a fungus that can be found in your body. When certain conditions are created in the human body, this fungus can multiply and divide throughout the body causing some common symptoms – including irritation, severe itching and burning and redness of the genital areas. For a woman, this is the outside and cavity of the vagina. For a man, this is in the form of a penile yeast infection that can occur inside and surrounding the penile shaft. This article will describe some strategies to cure your yeast infection.

How To Treat A Yeast Infection With Medications
For women who have been diagnosed with a vaginal yeast fungal infection, doctors will prescribe antifungal medications that can be applied in and around the vaginal cavity. These medications can be in the form of tablets, ointments, creams or suppositories. Some popular medications include Monistat, Femstat, Terazole, just to name a few. Special care should be used when treating a woman who is pregnant to make sure that the proper medication is prescribed and to ensure that the yeast infection is not transmitted to the baby. For a man, common prescribed treatments include ointments and antifungal cream that is applied directly on the penile shaft.

How To Treat A Yeast Infection With Natural Home Remedies
For some men and women, medications work for a short period of time, only for the infection to reoccur within a few weeks. Rather than opt for another does of prescription cream or ointment, many people seek out alternate homeopathic remedies to see if their bodies respond better. The last thing that someone who has suffered the pain, discomfort and embarrassment of a candida outbreak want is for it to return. And – with many illnesses – a reoccurrance could mean that the symptoms are more severe the second (or third) time around. Some popular home remedies include using tea tree oil, Boric acid as well as yogurt.
