Yeast infection<br>Yeast infection
I have just had a yeast infection. The dr said it was caused by all the anti biotics I kept being put on this year. I use Vagiflora and finished today and I've been eating at least 250mls live greek sugar free plain yoghurt every day. I am a little worried that it's going to come back as it had recurred once already. I had a pap smear and that was fine. How can I keep myself healthy "down there" from now on. Should I carry on eating the yoghurt? The pharmacist told me not to use soap, only water. The dr does not want me to go on medication again so I'd like some natural ways to keep them away. Please help
