So before you wonder how to cure yeast infection make sure you are suffering from infection and not some other similar type of infection. A mistake many people commonly make. The symptoms you should look out for are white cheesy discharge- mostly odorless, itchiness and swellings in the vagina and surrounding area.

Douching using hydrogen peroxide is another natural remedy to treat yeast infections. This can be done by adding in your bath a couple of capfuls of hydrogen peroxide and soak. You could also use lemon juice in your bath to maintain the acidic levels in the vagina.

Prevention is better than wondering how to cure yeast infection. So you can do your best to prevent getting infected by wearing dry underwear, practicing healthy sanitary habits, control your sugar level etc.

It is not true that candida is a sexually transmitted disease. But if you are infected do not indulge in intercourse till you are free from the infection. The infection may get transferred to your partner. Now this would come as a surprise to many that men too get yeast infection just like how we women get.
