Yeast Infection Cure: An Introduction
These medicines are taken by mouth, applied directly to the affected area, or used vaginally.
Although these medicines usually lead to a cure (80 percent to 90 percent success rate), infections that do not respond to these treatments are becoming more common, especially in HIV
-infected women receiving long-term antifungal therapy.
Details on Curing a Yeast Infection
Women can buy medications for yeast infections
in many forms, including:
- Antifungal creams to be applied directly to the area
- Tablets to be taken orally
- Suppositories for use in the vagina.
Both three-day and seven-day yeast infection treatments may be effective as a yeast infection cure. Women who have chronic or recurring yeast infections may need to be treated with vaginal creams or oral medicines for longer periods of time.
HIV-infected women may have severe yeast infections that often do not respond to conventional treatment.
