I feel like I am losing this battle....
I have been on and off the board for the past couple of months with my yeast infection. I went off the pill, started taking supplements, drinking ACV, Liver Flushing
(7 since mid-October), using Oil of Oregano locally and orally for the vaginal thrush, probiotics also same way. My diet began as an anti-candida diet but when Liver Flushing
made me feel so much better I let myself eat more of an applesauce, salad, chicken & veggies, soup and occasional bread (very rare bread allowance) diet.
THis yeast infection never itched. I've had it for 8 months now. It started itching yesterday horribly.
THis pain is unbearable and I feel like I am losing the battle. I have yet to eat garlic cuz I HATE it. My roomie keeps telling me I'll feel better if I eat whole fresh garlic and take Grapefruitseed extract, but I am reluctant and I am running out of supplements and I don't have the money to keep buying them.
I went to Whole Foods and they have a product called CandiGone that the girl told me seriously made her Candida go away. She knew right what I feeling....and suggested some Tea Tree vaginal suppositories for the vaginal thrush, which I bought. I might buy the product she suggested for Candida, but it is $30 and cannot afford to keep spending this kind of money on stuff without knowing if it will really work or not.
I feel like this is the most textbook yeast infection I've had and would like to just go get a Diflucan....or get a prescription for like 5 tablets. Part of me is convinced it will work, the other part of me knows that there has to be another way.
The only way I relieved my itching this morning was to douche with Clarkia
...haven't itched all day now... feels alot better.
But seriously folks. I am about ready to lose my mind. What else can I do?
PS I did slip over the holidays and had a few small goodies, nothing horribly bad, but had quite a bit more alcohol than usual, mostly vodka, but had a bit of tequila and maybe a total of 3 beers. I know I should've expected this kind of result, and I shoudn't be whining....but this is the worst it has ever been!
