A question I get asked a few times by some of my female subscribers is whether washing their private parts more regularly helps eradicate yeast infections. Some women may also have bacterial vaginosis (BV), which can cause a fishy, briny odor. In fact, repeated washing doesn’t reduce the infection for any significant period. Washing may temporarily create a different odor, but the irritation, itching, and smell will return quickly.
I recommend watching my videos on women’s yeast infections. I discuss boric acid treatment as well as the lifestyle and diet that helps eradicate genital infections.
For men, if you have a penis infection like balanitis, constantly washing is not necessarily going to set things right. I have several videos on genital infections in men available on my YouTube channel.

My recommendation for women or men with genital infections is to treat the issue internally. You need to address your digestive system by eating a healthy diet, following a healthy lifestyle, and using the right high-quality supplements. Internally treating yeast infections is what will give you the best possible outcome.
In addition, vaginal douching with boric acid works very well. Calendula, a herbal tincture, can also be used for douching. Other women use colloidal silver, tea tree oil, or tampons with yogurt.
If you have a genital yeast infection, it’s a good idea to wear cotton underclothing, keep the pubic hair short and trim, and expose the skin to sun and wind when appropriate.
