Yeast Infection Cure

Things to Consider

There are currently a number of over-the-counter treatments available for yeast infections. As a result, more women are diagnosing and treating themselves for the condition. However, misdiagnosis is common. Studies have shown that as many as two-thirds of all over-the-counter yeast infection medications sold are used by women without the disease.
Overuse of these antifungal medications can increase the chance that they will eventually fail to cure yeast infections (the fungus develops resistance to the medications). Therefore, it is important to be sure of the diagnosis before beginning treatment with over-the-counter or other antifungal medications.
