I got 2 yeast infections within 2 months apart and the first one I treated with Monistat 1. Horrible! Never ever use Monistat 1. It literally burns your vaginal skin and walls and causes a lot of internal and external damage. When I finally healed a month later, I got another yeast infection. I refused to take Monistat again so I researched natural remedies online. One natural remedy I tried was sticking a clove of garlic in the vagina. I wrapped the garlic clove in gauze and tied it with dental floss so it would be easy to pull the garlic out when necessary. Garlic worked wonders and cured my yeast infection within 24 hours!.

Men against Yeast Infections! I am a male so Many people are surprised when they find that I use a "female" medicine. The Yeast infection probably occurs mostly in men who have not been circumcised. Soap and water alone will not do the job. My preferred ointment is Vagisil wipes. Just clean the area carefully and apply Monistat when you get home. The itch is gone, also! What a relief!.
