Yogurt is a top choice for many women when they have an infection. I am not talking about eating yogurt but applying it directly to the infection. Yogurt has Lactobacillus Acidophilus in its ingredients, which is found in a healthy vagina. There are a few ways that are commonly used to apply yogurt to the infected area. The first is freezing the yogurt and inserting it into the vagina like you would a tampon. The second is using a syringe that does not have a needle on it to apply the yogurt into the vagina. The third is to coat a tampon in the yogurt and insert the tampon into the vagina.
Another male yeast infection home remedy you can try out is white vinegar. Now you don’t want to apply this directly to your penis as that will be too much. Dilute it a bit with water then apply that. If you wanted, you could even apply some Monistat cream as a base for the vinegar.
The first way to use it is simply consume plain yogurt every day. Over time, this will build up your good bacteria in your intestinal tract and re-address the good / bad bacteria balance there. This will help prevent yeast infections spreading from there to, for example, the vagina.
