    It can be a bit confusing to determine what type of yeast infection you are suffering from. By being aware of the different symptoms, you can decide whether your symptoms indicate a fungus or a bacterial yeast infection. Once you know which you have, you can determine the best way to treat your infection and gain relief. If you are experiencing the itching and burning associated with a yeast infection, you know how frustrating it can be. The itching can be distracting at best and can even interfere with normal sleep and sexual relations. Luckily, candida yeast overgrowth is a common problem and many solutions are available to obtain relief. Both natural treatments and over the counter products are easy to find, so it should be easy to discover what works the best for you. Your first priority is to rid of the immediate symptoms of the infection. Most women immediately head to the drug store for an over the counter cream. These can definitely be effective. However, if you find that they aren't clearing up your symptoms and you have not seen your gynecologist, it could be very helpful to actually be cultured to test for yeast. Several other problems can present the same symptoms as candida yeast overgrowth and there's no reason to treat for something that you may not even have. Allergic reactions to feminine products, for example, can mimic a yeast infection and the cream won't help the symptoms at all. At least for your first episode, be tested so you'll know what you are dealing with. In the future, you will recognize a recurrence if it happens. Once you are sure that you are dealing with a yeast infection, you can proceed with a treatment plan at home. If you wish to go natural in your recovery, there's quite a few options to consider. The first is eliminating sugars and simple starches from your diet. Candida yeast overgrowth feeds on these compounds, so cutting them out starves the organism. You may also want to try treating the affected area with garlic, tea tree oil or apple cider vinegar. Garlic can be wrapped in a thin layer of gauze and inserted as a suppository. Tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar can be diluted and applied soaked in a tampon. Eating yogurt also helps to balance the body's natural organisms and can provide relief.
