What home remedies have you found effective in soothing symptoms of vaginal yeast infection?

I have recurring yeast infections, and I don't enjoy sex anymore because it's very painful. I tried the pill, Diflucan, and I am taking Nature's Cure. It gives me relief, but it doesn't get rid of it. I tried yogurt and I still can't shake it. I have tried a lot of medicines and have spent money going back and forth to different doctors looking for a cure.

I have been using an herbal supplement made by Azo specifically to prevent yeast infections. It works for me. I would use the miconazole for when you have an active infection, but if you are prone to them, try the Azo Yeast.

I never had yeast infections before going on "the pill," but now I have them regularly. I take acidophilus every day, and it really helps. Also, if you take antibiotics, eat yogurt or take more acidophilus than usual when you're done taking the antibiotics.
