the only thing that did it for me last time was a homeopathic product called "yeast away" made by borion. everything else was too harsh and burned me.

you need to look at your diet too and *why* you are prone to yeast infections, since it signals an imbalance in your body.

I just posted for this in the March DDC only to have the same problem show up for myself two days later.
: oh well.

This is what I do. I've given this rememdy to a lot of people and they have all had success. I also checked it with my mw and all was well.

3 acidophilus
2 odorless garlic 500 mg (I prefer Arizona Natural Allirich odorless)
3x a day for 3-5 days.
I swear it's safe for you and the babe. I realize it's more than the dosage on the package. What it does is bring the body back into alkaline balance (acidophilus) while amping yor immune system and beating away and infection (garlic is a natural, safe anti-biotic that works with the pro-biotic)

Also, here is the link to that thread I referred to. Other people had interesting tips too.

Honeybeedreams is totally right. There's always a reason and cause for the infection and it's typically diet related.
