Vaginal Yeast Infection
I hope you can help me with some additional vaginal yeast infection information.
I went to the doctor today because I have been having a crawling sensation with intermittent pins feelings.
I was scared because I was worried I have a pin-worm infection (the crawling sensation is especially intense in my lower vaginal and perianal area).
The doctor did not see an pinworms (he inspected my vagina and anus but no scotch tape test; he says try to see if working on the yeast infection clears it up first) but looked at my discharge under the microscope and diagnosed me with a yeast infection.
I get several of these a year due to antibiotic use for UTIs, but this is the first time I have had this crawling/prickly sensation--my ears, back, vagina, anus. It is really freaking me out.
Anyway, I saw on your website how this crawling sensation can be a symptom of yeast infection. Would you mind expounding on that a little more and tell me if you have ever heard of a situation like this before/any expectations of when it will clear up?
So far, I have taken one fluconzaole, am taking garlic pills, 1000mg Vitamin C, and drank a full glass of water mixed with two tablespoons of ACV.
I only ever drink water. I also bought ginger green tea to drink tonight.
I bought a bunch of fresh vegetables and will be cutting rice out of my diet for the next month along with the fruits and yogurt I usually eat daily, using your website for advice.
Please shed some light on this crawling sensation in my private parts (feel like something crawling out of/in anus/vagina) if you can.
I am so worried I have worms and even if I don't, I'm worried about what to do if it is yeast causing this issue.
Thank you so much for your help.
Vaginal yeast infections are quite common after antibiotic use. Sometimes antibiotics are a necessary evil, but I always try positive remedies first for urinary track infections, etc., and only use the antibiotic path as a last resort because of the damage they do.
If you (or anyone reading this) feel they must use antibiotics for treating something, it is extremely important to also take probiotics during and for some time
afterward to keep the good bacteria numbers high in your body. That's the best way to avoid yeast overgrowth and vaginal yeast infections.
Having said all that, let's talk about your current situation. Although it's possible that you are only dealing with candida (yeast overgrowth), your description leads me to believe that there is a better chance that you are also dealing with pinworms.
Don't panic. It's not as bad as you think. They can be dealt with as well as the yeast infection, and my best recommendation for positive and LONG LASTING results is to use Herbal Fiberblend
Cutting out the sugars and yeast feeding foods in your diet is great and important (particularly if you have a severe infection) but I've found that using Herbal Fiberblend is the most effective method for internal cleansing of a wide range of parasites, yeast, bacteria, etc.
Your use of garlic is good, but you can also speed up the symptom relief by applying organic plain yogurt to the vaginal area. For the anus you can insert a single peeled garlic clove (like a suppository) when you go to bed at night.
You mentioned that you have a tendency to get UTI's. Do you have other chronic health issues as well? If so, the Herbal Fiberblend can help with these issues, but I would also suggest a few other supplements to help boost your immune system and improve your overall health so that you don't have these recurring problems.
You asked about the length of time needed before you should expect your vaginal yeast infection and/or pinworm issues to clear up. The truth is that it depends on how advanced the condition is and how aggressively and consistently you treat it. I really can't give you a flat answer for that.
In your case I would suggest several weeks of use of the above 4 supplements (most importantly, the Herbal Fiberblend) even well after you "think" it is all under control so that you don't have recurring issues.
Also, if you are in intimate contact with someone, they need to also treat themselves or you could continue to pass it back and forth (yeast infections and pin-worms are transferable).
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
