There is little chance of curing "thrush" only with folk remedies, so they should only act as a concomitant treatment. In order to defeat the Candida fungus, it is necessary to use stronger means. In this regard, first of all, contact your personal gynecologist so that he prescribes the necessary tests, and then the appropriate drug for the treatment of this disease.
Among folk remedies, the most popular are ingestion and douching with decoctions of various herbs. Collect the following herbs: chamomile (flowers), calendula, eucalyptus, sage leaves, yarrow, juniper berries, black poplar and birch buds. Take herbs in equal parts. Dissolve 2 tablespoons of the resulting collection in a liter of boiling water. Take the broth by mouth or use as an external bath.
One of the easiest ways to defeat thrush is douching and washing with a special soda solution, which you can also do yourself. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. An alkaline environment is harmful to Candida.
To restore the microflora of the vagina, as well as to prevent recurrence of candidiasis, use tampons soaked in bioyogurt without additives, or in kefir. Insert such tampons at night.
