Home Remedies  On How to Get Rid of A Yeast Infection

Vinegar Vinegar can also be used to treat this disease. Mix one to three tablespoons of vinegar with a quart of water. Douche with this solution at least once a day to relieve the symptoms of the disease. Discontinue this treatment if the infection does not go away after one week.
Garlic Garlic has a natural anti-fungal agent that can help fight the candida fungus and prevent the symptoms from getting worse. Use a clove of garlic as a suppository to treat yeast infections at home. Peel a clove of garlic and wrap it in gauze. Insert the wrapped clove into your vagina to treat your infection.
Herbal Douche An herbal douche is also an effective home remedy for yeast. Combine equal amounts of comfrey, raspberry, and sage with about 1/4 part goldenseal. You can also use cider vinegar if you do not have any goldenseal at home. Mix the solution well and then douche with it once a day.
If the natural home remedies above did not work, you can try over-the-counter remedies for treating fungal infections instead. Over-the-counter remedies are more expensive than the home remedies listed above, but they are generally more effective and help you get rid of the candida fungus faster. You can buy over-the-counter antifungal remedies at almost any drug store.



If you plan to use antifungal medications or other over-the-counter remedies, it is best that you consult your doctor first. Your doctor can recommend the best over-the-counter medications for your condition so that you will be able to get the most effective medication for your infection. A serious yeast infection may require prescription-only medications. If you think your disease is serious, visit your doctor as soon as possible and ask him about prescription-only medications for your disease.

How do you get rid of nail fungus using home remedies?

I have noticed for quite some time now that my nail bed is becoming thicker and thicker. Every time I clip my toe nail I try to go deeper so that the nail grows nicely, however it grows really thick. I don't know what to do. I thought clipping it deeper would make it grow smooth however the fugus I suppose has gotten inside and now its hard to clip my toe nail. Any suggestions as how to get rid of the nail fugus imbedded inside the nail? Thank you.

  • i hada fungus starting in two toenails about 5 yrs ago. The fungus is very deep rooted, so the only real way to get rid of it is to take medication for about 3 months. I have been clear eversince.

    Homeremedies really dont work because you can only put them on the surface.

    see a dermatologist

  • My husband has a big toe nail exactly the same. We have recently bought Curanail to treat it. You get 3 months supply of stuff and, once a week, you file the nail and paint this stuff on it. It does state that, because nails grow so slowly, it does take a while. Finger nails up to 6 months and toe nails 9 - 12 months so it is not a quick fix.
    Boots the chemist were wanting over £20 for Curanail but I searched online and got it for £13.98.

    Vicks vapour rub is supposed to be good for fungal toenails. It needs to be applied once or twice a day for months on end though. I started treating mine with this but couldn't keep it up and am now going to get a prescription instead.

  • They sell fungal nail treatments at the pharmacy. I know if nothing you could use as a home remedy.
    Treatment takes about 6 months.
