I am a young woman about 22 years old. I tried Hydrogen Peroxide half water half peroxide in a little plastic cup for a yeast infection. I was suffering for about two days from this certain one, but I have been having yeast infections for what seems like every other month and I am a healthy woman I go to the doctor take care of my body and my healths #1. I was sick of having the discomfort of monistat and all the leakage and painful burning! So i tired the peroxide mix with water. I let my tampon soak up the water still in the applicator and then inserted into my vagina I did this at night of course I also ran some of the mixture down my vagina as i sat on the toliet. I put the tampoon in for a few hours took it out ran the water over it, then soaked another tampoon and inserted it, i got instant relief and in the morning it fel really good by the next night I believed it was clear I changed the tampoons twice a day kept one in for atleast 8 hrs each night it's great not painful or itchy love it! :)
I have to say it is a big relief to have used the remedy of hydrogen peroxide for curing a vaginal yeast infection. I diluted by using onc cup peroxide and a quarter cup water. Used a douche bottle and rinsed with it two days only once a day. It is gone. Amazing! Thanks again.
re: Yeast Infection -- bathing in water and apple cider vinegar and then cleansing with the peroxide/water solution gave me immediate relief
I don't normally give comments back, but I am going to this time. I have had a yeast infection or BV for 4 days and thinking yeast first, I treated it with Monostat 1. It did not work, on the 4th day I was more miserable than I was on day one. I do not know how ladies put up with such a nasty condition for so long. Anyway, I dislike going to the doctors very much. I found this site and read your antidotes, then I found a medical site that backed the information about using a certain kind (that most people do not have) of H202 internally. I only have the 3% at home and that is what I used. The medical site does not recommend it for internal use. I do not own a baster or anything else like that. I used a tampon which I tried to soak with a solution of 50% bottled water and 50% H202, but I found it expanded too much in the applicator. In my frustration, I removed the tampon from the applicator and drenched it with straight H202 and used my fingers to push it up into my vaginal cavity. It was messy and a lot of liquid just came dripping back out. I also took paper towels and soaked them in staight H202 and methodically cleaned the entire external area from inside thigh to inside thigh and from start of pubic hair well past the anal opening. I let myself air dry then put on clean cotten underwear with a pad, and went to make a phone call, I talked for 67 minutes. During that time expanse there was a bit of a warm sensation that I felt and a bit of pain (like a cramping pain). After my call was over, I pulled the tampon out, then I literally dumped some more H202 over the entire external area and left myself air dry again. I woke this morning and have checked 3 times so far. No external cheesy stuff, no internal excessive white stuff, no musky smell, and I am pink again. I am going to the store to get some folic acid today also, but I did want to let you know of my success. P.S. I already eat Breyers probiotic yogurt daily regardless of state of health.
Hydrogen Peroxide worked instantly for the itching caused by my yeast infection, even though it stung a little bit initially. But the relief was worth the use I'm definately sticking by this one. Thanks for the info on the site, it was really helpful.
I started having a terrible itching two days ago. This had never happened to me so I didn't know where it came from, especially now that I am on a good diet. It may have been the bath that I took, and many other things. Anyway, the itching started being unbearable, last night I couldn't sleep at all so I started reading the cures on these site. I did the folic acid, garlic softgel and hydrogen peroxide. The itching really as subsided. Hopefully it goes all away. The hydrogen peroxide seemed to help a lot.
Honestly for all you ladies you have yeast infections hydrogen peroxide does the trick - for me in a single dose! I googled natural remedies and was told about mixing 1 tablespoon per cup. I used two cups [of water] with 2 tablespoons [of h202] and a turkey baster to get it in there. Relief was immediate and my symptoms are gone after only ONE use! I will never use anyting else but this EVER again. If I had the power to gurarentee it I would! I LOVE hydrogen peroxide and am learning just how effective it is for many ailments!
I tried this product for yeast infection, I used the plastic tube that the vaginal creme comes with and fill it with hydrogen peroxide put inside the vaginal areas for a couple of days and it worked like a charm. Also used it for a severe vaginal itch, (careful!! it may burn !! but not for long) all I know is the itching was gone.
okay, I happy to say that I have found something that works for me. I have been battling BV and Lucky me Yeast infection at the same time. This is what I did, I empty a bottled water bottle and add half peroxide and half distilled water, then I add 1 acidophilus caplet to the mixture. Once the caplet dissolves I use this mixture as a douche for 5 days........works wonders. oh, I also take the probiotic pills ____ one daily. Hope this helps and please share with if it does.
Ladies, Ladies Ladies! This is the BEST way to be comfortable again - and it's affordable! My story goes back to when I was 15 and was prescribed antibiotics for Acne. By age 16 and 17 I was a crotch mess and virgin and until I read in a woman's magazine I never knew that antibiotic use could cause vaginal infections - I thought it was "puberty" and plenty irritating and itchy. I wanted to punch that doctor in the nose that never told me about possible side-effects.
Of course, when asked I got some drippy cream, an expensive prescription and some relief! I struggled with vag infections EVERY TIME I took antibiotics after that -just asked for the vag cream to go with it whenever I had sinus, or strep. I heard about peroxide on a religious talk show and GOD BLESS THAT LADY!
The DrNeilMed Sinus rinse bottles to use in the shower!!! $10 Lasts years. Not advertising - just sayin' it works and squirts!
They come with 50 tiny packets of salt. I used it for repeated sinus infections - and with a capful of hydrogen peroxide (all peroxide caps the same size) to about 12? oz warm water - my sinus infections went away and have never had to take an antibiotic in over 10 years!
I got to thinking...and tried the same mixture as a vaginal rinse -using the same bottle in the shower! VOILA'!
So SIMPLE So CHEAP! Keeps everything in balance! Makes me want to punch the doctors in the nose who prescribe expensive yucky creams and suppositories which I struggled to pay for sometimes. (they weren't OTC then). I never used more than a capful-or 2. I am past menopause now -and the vag infections still come and go-but I have INSTANT RELIEF!
After 40 years of dealing with this...I am glad to know but disgusted no one in medicine told me. Oh and in a pinch for a quick tune-up -you can do it on the toilet and be fresh and itch-free anytime.
Another embarrassing item...I have hypothesized and tried it...if you make your man brush his teeth extra good...it happens less. I believe it is associated with oral contact - ALWAYS happened with my first husband...but NOT with my second...they can harbor bacteria in their MOUTH that causes infections. Someone shared something embarrassing for me to be comfortable...so I must share what I have found to be true. I couldn't sit still for itching most of my life. ~sigh~
An important thing to remember is MALES get Yeast Infections also!! If a woman has a yeast infection it could pass very easily through sexual contact with a partner, And vice-versu. A reason why you might be having reoccurring problems is because after curing it you just receive the infection from your partner again.
Both you and your partner need to be cured of it to stop the infection from reoccurring.
But even so, as hard as these fungal infections are to kill, this is not the only reason for reoccurring infections.

Here is a site that is most interesting, explaining the connections behind the diseases and maladies associated with yeast and fungus infections and some of the pulic issues and frustrations associated with Western Medicine's applications or lack thereof; due to it's stubbornness, arrogance and greed.(http://www.know-the-cause.com/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx) Judge for yourself how it might apply to you. Earthclinic and Ted's information has been most helpful for all of us who check in daily to the new discoveries using natural applications to clean up our bodies of disease. I am most pleased that Earthclinic and Ted find human sufferings to be important enough to allow us all to help one another by permitting us to post our findings to this site. Thanks Ted and Earthclinic!! Regards
I started douching with iodine diluted in water and it immediately cured the symptoms of candidiasis / bacterial vaginosis which had been affecting me for quite a while. I have been douching twice a day with the solution (5 drops of iodine in half a cup of water) and I'm extremely happy. After failing to cure my candidiasis / vaginosis with oral acidophilus, I am super satisfied with iodine.
I have very sensitive skin, so condoms, dryer sheets, and of course antibiotics can bring on a yeast infection. Step one is to avoid condoms and spermicide (for me) and using dryer sheets, particularly on underwear or athletic clothing that is close to the skin. To treat, I have had great success with bathing in lemon or lime water. This is probably more gentle than apple cider vinegar. Yeast needs a basic enviroment to live, and a healthy vagina is slightly acidic, so you want to return your environment gradually and gently to normal. Also - sperm is basic, so wash thoroughly after sexual activity to avoid creating a "good home" for excessive bacteria or yeast. There are also antifungal natural ear drops that are a little better than using a strong chemical treatment that you could try. For bacteria, I find that eating yogurt and probiotics during antibiotic courses, garlic, and avoiding triggers like dryer sheets helps as well. Hope this helps someone out there!
FINALLY A CURE/PREVENTATIVE FOR CHRONIC YEAST INFECTIONS
This is too important NOT to share for those who suffer from many chronic yeast infections take this as follows for 2 dollars per week, EASY to take.
Cut 5-7 limes depending on your blender size, blend with water, MUST use the whole fruit, the outer green peel, the inner white peel the seeds, the WHOLE fruit. Should make about a quart good for one week for one person. Store in refrigerator. To serve, take out and stir using about 2-3 oz in a cup, add one oz warm water and down quickly, VERY EASY to take, rinse mouth, teeth, gums 2-3 times.
