How do you treat yeast infections?
I use to get yeast infections every months after my menstrual my doctor told me to eat yogurt everyday.
When men experience yeast infections, such as "athlete's foot" or intertriginous yeast infections of the skin, common treatments include clotrimazole (e.g. Lotrimin) or tolnaftate (e.g. Tinactin), for instance. For certain types of yeast infections (e.g. oral thrush), physicians may prescribe medications such as Nystatin or others. The above answer is correct but it is also applicable to women who are suffering from yeast infection. The treatment is similar to both, men and women.
No, yoghurt cannot give you a yeast infection - at least not unless you put yoghurt sweetened with sugar into your vagina. Yoghurt can help prevent and treat yeast infections, the bacteria found in probiotic yoghurt is the same found in healthy vaginas so eating it can help maintain healthy bacteria within the body. You can insert sugar-free plain probiotic yoghurt vaginally to reintroduce healthy bacteria to prevent infections or to treat yeast infections.
As you know Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is an antibiotic used to treat yeast infections, urinary tract and ear infections. Here is a research that i found on the internet about this topic: Yeast infections are becoming more and more common nowadays and part of the reason for that is antibiotics.

No, amoxicillin is an antibiotic and does not treat yeast infections. You need an antifungal medication such as clotrimazole or nystatin. In fact, amoxicillin may increase your risks of developing a yeast infection because the antibiotic may interrupt the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina, allowing the normally present yeast to overgrow.
Yes, over-the-counter yeast infection treatments do cure/treat yeast infections - that's why they're sold! Just make sure that you follow the instructions and if you find it doesn't work it's a good idea to see your doctor to confirm it is just a yeast infection and maybe get a different stronger treatment.
No. Yeast infections are caused by an over population of yeast microbes in the vagina. The population is normally controlled by a kind of bacteria that also lives there. If there is any sort of imbalance the bacteria may die off and allow the yeast cells to take over. You need a medication to kill the yeast. Monistat is an effective over the counter drug sold to treat yeast infections. Never ever douche! This can…
You can purchase over-the-counter products to cure yeast infections. Monistat, Gyne-Lotrimin, and prescription oral antifungal Diflucan are the most used medicines to treat yeast infections. There are also some practical home remedies One home remedy you might try is a vinegar douche because its' acidic properties help in preventing "bad" bacteria to grow. Eating yogurt is also recommended to get rid of yeast infections.
Yeast is naturally occurring in the body, certain conditions will increase yeast growth. For example warm moist conditions encourage yeast growth so things like wearing tight synthetic clothing can lead to yeast infections, changes in vaginal pH such as by using soaps to wash with will increase risk of yeast infections, also high sugar diet can lead to yeast infections too.
