Most women experience thrush most often during pregnancy and menstruation because it is during these times that the body goes through major hormonal fluctuations which changes the vaginal acidity (pH levels) and contributes to a yeast infection. Women experience troublesome vaginal discharge, persistent vaginal burning and itching alongside with fatigue and lethargy. It is no surprise that it becomes quite stressful for some women and this imposes a great infliction to their overall lives and relationships.
Thankfully there are several methods to successfully treat thrush at home, here are some well documented and proven methods that will help bring fast relief and treat symptoms better than most antibiotics drugs and creams that are out there.
Treat Thrush at home with Yogurt
It's common knowledge that natural yogurt is good for the digestive system and that's because it contains friendly bacteria such as acidophilus that helps our digestive tract from the bad bacteria. Yogurt has been reported by many women to be a great thrush treatment which gets rid of all yeast infection fast.
Apply yogurt topically, as you would a vaginal cream. Apply it to the affected area for best results.
Yogurt is also very soothing and relaxing so this should bring relief to the burning and soreness.
Treat Thrush at home with Garlic
Garlic is a powerful natural antibiotic which helps fight off many types of bacteria and fungi. It's especially effective when it comes to treating thrush and other yeast infection types.
Apply garlic directly to the affected area for best results.
These are just a few of the best home thrush treatments used to successfully cure a yeast infection without any of the serious health side effects that are often associated with prescribed antibiotics. Many women have reported success with implementing the holistic natural home treatment.
It is important to get a guide to help you use these remedies properly and specify how much or how frequent they should be used. You can easily get rid of your thrush within days using natural remedies with proper guidance.

If your dog has a yeast infection in it's ear, it needs antibiotics.
Sometimes ear infections will recur after successful treatment. Primary inhalant or food allergies causing secondary ear infections should be considered. But usually, with proper treatment, a yeast infection can be cleared up within two weeks.
I have found that chronic ear infections ususally have some underlying cause.I don't know if your mixed pup is known to have an anatomy problem that contributes to ear infections, but that is always a possiblity. It is best to purchase a product from your veterinarian to clean out your dogs ears prior to placing the prescribed antibiotic drops in the ears, such as Epi-Otic. I have found that some medications don't work well in the presence of a lot of dirt or discharge. Keeping the hair plucked out of the ears also helps keeping the ears cleaner.
What is the most effective way to treat my dog's yeast infection?
Our dog is 5 years old now and for the last month or so, he's had a really bad yeast infection in his ears and around his chin. We've been giving him a prescription from the vet, but it doesn't seem to be working very well. Could you tell me how i can treat it for a long time without having to spend too much money on any kind of medicine?
FROM THE INSIDE:
I'd first make sure he was on a high quality food without corn or wheat; these are very common empty additives; basically fillers with no nutritional value. They often cause nutritional imbalances and food allergies, making dogs more prone to infections of all types. Pretty much anything you pick up at the grocery store is going to have one or both.
I suggest either Canidae All Life Stages:
Or Wellness by Old Mother Hubbard, either the fish and sweet potato or one of the allergy diets, initially, until you get his system straightened out:
A tablespoon of plain yogurt on his food, once a day, helps re-establish beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. Often yeast gets out of control when the good bacteria as well as the bad have been killed during a course of antibiotics.
Also try adding a tsp of apple cider vinegar to his water bowl, yeast will not flourish in an acidic environment.
ON THE OUTSIDE:
For an earwash my vet gave me this recipe:
1 part apple cider vinegar
1 part hydrogen peroxide
1 part water
(I combine 1/2 cup each in a clean empty dish soap bottle with the push-pull top, and refrigerate after using, then allow it to warm up on the counter a bit before re-using; discard any left over after one week and make a fresh batch)
Fill the ear canal with this solution, massage the base of the ear, and allow the dog to shake its head, then wipe with cotton balls. Never stick a q-tip into a dogs ear.
Yeast infection can be treated externally with over-the-counter creams for athlete's foot or vaginal yeast infections (lamisil is our personal favorte) you can smear that in the ears and dab it on his chin; just be sure to soak off any crusts first with a warm wet cloth.
Yeast infection...(Natural Remedies)!?
My 2 year old German Shepherd has a yeast infection in his ears, skin, and anus.
I have done a lot of research online and many web sites suggest using vinegar, yogurt etc.
My question is;
Do you know of any ALL NATURAL remedies known to treat and cure yeast infections in dogs?
Please respond only if you have treated this condition your animal all naturally and gotten good results.
Please tell me what you used, how much, and how often.
To: ?PomMom?®™ ?Spay & Neuter?
You are so horribly mistaken, it pains me to even read your uneducated response.
There are tons of all natural remedies to treat this condition. Not to mention thousands of success stories on the internet.
I am asking for other peoples PERSONAL experience and knowledge about this condition. I do not believe in pumping my animal full of harmful and toxic medications. You are exactly the type of closed minded person who I did not want replying to my question.
Lack of answers must tell you there are no natural home remedies and your dog needs to be treated by a vet.
That's exactly what they are...STORIES - NOT fact. I can Google Big Foot on the internet - doesn't make it true! If it were that simple, you would have gotten a lot more responses! Call your vet and ask - the phone call is FREE. And how do you even know it's a yeast infection? Are you a vet? Looks like it's YOU that needs the education!
Yeast infection is a FUNGUS and is killed with FUNGICIDE - NOT yogurt! ROLFLMAO
The internet is NOT a suppose to be a substitute for proper vet care
How to treat dog ear infection?
So I adopted my dog about two months ago, and at the time of adoption he had I think a yeast infection in his ear that was on the moderate side of severe. Per the vet's direction, I treated his ears with drops for two weeks then brought him in to get the ears flushed out.
On the follow-up appointment, the vet said his ears looked great and would continue to heal completely on their own. About a month later, they seem okay but my friend suggested maybe they weren't. Usually the color of the ears is white, but now and again one of the ears will seem a little pink. Also, they don't always smell so fresh. She told me that dog ears should never smell funky, even if I claim it's just a little, and that his ears may still be infected.
One thing is for sure: it's sure as hell not like it was. My question is, is there something I can do at home to maybe treat his ears? Should I wash them every day, or rub the insides with peroxide, or I don't know?
I hesitate to bring him back to the vet because he seems fine and his ears, truly, don't seem bad. But I also don't want to let my dog walk around with partial or recurring ear infections!
I had the same problem with my dog. If the infection went untreated for some time, then a little of the redness/swelling will always be there, not saying a massive amount but it will always look a little pink.
If it was only for a short amount of time before it was treated though it is probably flaring up again. I bought a bottle of chlorhexiderm solution from my vet and cleaned his ears whenever i notice they smell bad or look bad. just make sure you use a cotton ball and get them really clean and dry afterwards without going in the canal.
It took about three months for everything to settle.
