Is there anyone who tried coconut oil as a home remedy to treat a yeast infection?
Hello, Has anyone here tried coconut oil for yeast infections? I applied this oil directly to my affected areas. It didn't soothe my irritation, left my greasy skin, and triggered tiny, painful sores around my skin areas. I am not allergic to coconut oil as I use coconut as a moisturizer on my face? Is there anyone who used coconut oil to treat yeast infection and saw good results? I am 38 years old female.
@solange Hello, Coconut oil has demonstrated antifungal properties and is effective in killing strains of the Candida fungus, whose overgrowth causes yeast infections. I used coconut oil on the affected area, the yeast infection was bad(swollen & sore). The affected area was on fire, soaked the area & it worked to relieve both itch/burning sensation. My recommendation would be to consult a doctor before trying any home remedy as it can cause serious complications. Thanks!
