A yeast infection yogurt tampon is a pretty effective method for treating vaginal yeast infection (candida). It's simple to do and way cheaper than drug-based medications that, in any case, only address the local symptoms and not the root cause of yeast infections. You'll find out here just how to use a yeast infection yogurt tampon.

The first thing you must know is that the yogurt to be used has to be plain, unsweetened yogurt. It must not have any fruit nor coloring added. And very important, it must have "with active cultures" or similar wording on the container or label. You can get it in health food stores, grocery stores and some supermarkets.

One of the active cultures contained in this yogurt is Lactobacillus acidophilus which is a 'friendly' or 'good' bacteria we also find in our bodies. It helps to prevent the cause of yeast infection -- the Candida Albicans fungus -- from overgrowing and causing an infection.

The Candida Albicans fungus can be found quite naturally in most of us. It normally doesn't cause any problems because our body's good bacteria prevents it from multiplying and spreading. It's this 'overgrow' that causes your symptoms of yeast infection. An infection can be almost anywhere on or in your body, but the most common place for women is the vagina.

So here's how to use a vaginal yeast infection yogurt tampon: Just soak a regular tampon in the yogurt and use as normal overnight. Repeat the procedure every night until your symptoms disappear.

For the lips and vulva just apply the yogurt directly; a bit messy but effective.

Eating yogurt everyday will help build-up the good bacteria in your intestinal tract to help fight the Candida there and prevent yeast infections. Remember to keep your edible yogurt separate from the yogurt you use for applying directly.

Many women swear by using a vaginal yeast infection yogurt tampon for getting rid of the symptoms. But yeast infections are normally too complex to be permanently eradicated using a single home remedy. As well as the symptoms, you have to take care of the root cause and any other issues that can 'trigger' the Candida overgrow. For example, diet and lifestyle issues. Without this complete approach you could face recurring yeast infections where the symptoms certainly go only to return again and again.
