Boric acid suppositories have proven to be one of the most effective natural cures for yeast infections. Though highly controversial, they are even recommended by some doctors but must be used cautiously and with an awareness of the toxicity that is possible if used incorrectly.
DO NOT take boric acid capsules by mouth—it is highly toxic when taken orally.
DO NOT use this yeast infection remedy if you are or may be pregnant.
DO NOT leave the boric acid powder or suppositories within reach of children or pets.
Directions for Application
Research indicates that approximately 600mg of boric acid powder may be put in gelatin capsules (size 00) and inserted vaginally once per day for 10-14 days, as needed and depending on the severity of your yeast infection.
The empty capsules and boric acid powder can be purchased at most pharmacies or you can also find them on-line.
You may insert the capsule/suppository using your finger or possibly an anti-thrush treatment applicator. Be sure to insert the suppository as far up into the vagina as possible. Bed time is the best time to use this method and you will want to wear a panty liner as there may be some vaginal leaking.
What To Expect
You may feel some burning when using boric acid suppositories—this is normal. The suppositories should not be used on broken skin or the inflamed and irritated outer vaginal tissue that often accompanies yeast infections.
It is a good idea to apply Vitamin E oil on the outer vaginal tissue for protection prior to inserting the suppositories. This will effectively protect against irritation should there be any vaginal leaking.
If you would rather avoid the hassle of “do-it-yourself” boric acid suppositories, you can also ask your doctor for a prescription for the suppositories. It will be more costly, but may be worth it if you prefer a doctor’s supervision.
Boric Acid and Diabetics
Boric acid has also proven to be a very effective treatment in those individuals with diabetes. Yeast infections experienced by diabetics are usually caused by the Candida glabrata and the Candida tropicalis yeast species. Unfortunately, conventional yeast infection medicine has not proven very effective in eliminating these two resistant strains of yeast.
Studies were also done on diabetics with vulvovaginal candidiasis (otherwise known as vaginal thrush or a yeast infection). The two test groups were administered a single 150mg dose of Fluconazole (also known as Diflucan) or vaginal boric acid suppositories (600mg once per day for 14 days).
Those who were given the suppositories experienced better results than those who were given the Fluconazole.
Some experts have concluded that the toxic potential of boric acid outweighs any therapeutic value it may provide.
Though boric acid suppositories have been hailed as one of the most effective natural cures for yeast infections, it must be stressed that it is a toxic substance if taken orally or applied to broken skin.
Though historically effective on yeast infections, boric acid must be used responsibly and with caution.
