The itching, pain, irritation, burning and swelling do not have to ruin your life and general well being. There are effective steps you can take to stop it, here are three of them.
1. Stay dry
Not only do you need to wash properly you really need to dry properly too. Yeast infections love a damp warm area to grow in, so don’t give them a good home! Dry thoroughly after showering/bathing either with a towel or if need be a hair drier! Do not stay in damp clothing for example swim suits or sweaty work out clothes. Shower, dry and change as soon as you can.
2. Stay Loose
I mean your clothing! No more tight jeans, tight leather pants, tight panties. It keeps the heat trapped which the yeast thrives in. Wear loose pants and particularly try loose skirts. Cotton panties are a good idea as cotton allows your skin to breathe.
3. Stay sugar free
Maybe the toughest piece of advice here if you have a sweet tooth like I do. Sugar is to yeast like fish food is to fish. Yeast feeds on it and grows and grows. Cut out sugar and sweet items and starve the yeast away and keep it away. In case you find it hard try chewing sugar free gum and drink plenty of sugar free drinks.

Just make sure you choose a treatment that kills all the yeast spores or you will still find you have problems with it reoccurring.
