hello
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, as you have already tried yeast infection( antifungal pill) so you need to take preventive remedies to prevent its recurrence.

Now I would advise you some self-care remedies which you can try.

Cool water sitz bath with an antiseptic solution for 15 minutes twice a day.

An application of OTC 0.5% hydrocortisone cream with Lotrimin cream.

Wear loose-fitting cotton fabric panties.

Take OTC Advil and Allegra.

Add yogurt (with live active cultures) and probiotics contain Lactobaccillis acidophilus such as RepHresh.

Also, a product called Boric Acid vaginal suppositories will help too.

Stay away from perfumed detergents, soaps, and feminine products.

Don’t douche.

Maintain a good hydration with plenty of water and cranberry juice.

The foods to avoid on the candida diet: Sweets: Barley, corn or rice syrup; sugar; honey; maple syrup; dairy products (they contain lactose); any foods containing concentrated sweeteners.

Sorry for the late reply.

You need to take all such remedies at the same time for 1-2 weeks to prevent its recurrence.

In most of the cases, symptoms get resolve completely.
