Have you ever wondered how to relieve yeast infection symptoms? Did you know that up to 75% of women experience yeast infections at some point in their lives? Did know that stress can play a part in how frequently you get them? So, chances are if you’re reading this article, you have probably had to deal with a yeast infection at some point in your life.

Relieve Yeast Infection Symptoms [4 Tips That Really Work]

Relieve Yeast Infection Symptoms

Symptoms of a yeast infection include burning, itching, irritation, and an abnormal discharge. There are many different reasons women get yeast infections including stress, diet, hygiene, pregnancy, menopause, medication, and lifestyle. When I was younger, I had yeast infections regularly that were caused by medication I was on for an autoimmune disorder.

No matter the cause of your yeast infection, following a few of these tips can help relieve yeast infection symptoms.

Loose-Fitting Clothing

To stay comfortable and relieve some of the symptoms, wear loose fitting clothing that will breathe including cotton underwear. You should avoid tights, leggings, and anything made of a fabric that doesn’t breathe.

Avoid Scented Products

Avoid using scented feminine care products as well as scented bubble baths, soaps, and body washes while you have a yeast infection. Some people find that using these products actually cause yeast infections so be aware of how your body reacts to them.

Yogurt and Acidophilus

While eating yogurt and taking acidophilus may not get rid of your yeast infection, they can help prevent them from coming back. Add in a serving of Greek yogurt each day just because it has so many health benefits. When choosing your yogurt, avoid any with added sugar or artificial ingredients and make sure it has live cultures. If you truly don’t like yogurt, you can take a probiotic containing live active cultures instead.

Use MONISTAT®

MONISTAT® offers a variety of products to cure the uncomfortable (but very common!) issue. MONISTAT® products are available in a variety of treatment dosage strengths (1 day, 3 days or 7 days) and forms, including Ovule®, cream or suppositories, to meet specific needs. And, MONISTAT® relieves symptoms four times faster and works on more strains of yeast than the leading prescription and results in less drug resistance and fewer drug interactions than the leading prescription pill. MONISTAT® is the #1 doctor recommended OTC brand with a long-term record of success — it has been in use for the treatment of vaginal yeast infections for over 40 years.

If you do have a yeast infection, I hope that a few of these tips will help you find relief.
