I had a viewer who wrote in about her long history of Candida overgrowth, her more recent constipation, and accelerating vaginal yeast issues.
In her case, she was experiencing pain, inflammation, discharge, and slight bleeding. The viewer described the rash as multiple pimple-like, pus-filled blisters sitting on top of inflamed skin. She wondered if she should follow the regular protocol for vaginal Candida.
My advice to this young lady was that, first and foremost, she needs to go see her doctor. I recommended against jumping into treatment with fluconazole. I have several videos that discuss the use of that antifungal and my approach to vaginal yeast infections. However, in this case, the viewer must get the correct diagnosis before jumping into treatment. To me, the rash sounded more bacterial than yeast-related.
Next, I recommended avoiding physical intimacy until the rash had been addressed. It could take days, weeks, or even months to get significant relief for the symptoms.

If the infection is confirmed to be a vaginal yeast issue, there are several options, including apple cider vinegar, topical yogurt, and boric acid. Boric acid is very sanitizing and cleansing, but if the skin is raw and bleeding, allow the tissue some time to heal before using acids like vinegar or boric acid. Yogurt might be a good intermediate that you can use.
There are various vaginal suppositories that are available on the internet. Homeopathic vaginal suppositories often contain boric acid and coconut oil. They’re quite pleasant to use and can offer a lot of healing in the short-term.
In the long-term, I recommended that the view address her constipation.
Chapter five of my book, Candida Crusher, is all about vaginal yeast infections.
Just remember that step one is to see the doctor and get a proper diagnosis. Once you know what you’re dealing you, you can select the most effective treatment.
