2. Boric Acid
Women who are suffering from a vaginal yeast infection may find that using a vaginal boric acid capsules can help clear up the issue. These capsules tend to be exceptionally useful for women who tend to have recurrent vaginal yeast infections. A 600 mg dosage of boric acid in a capsule that is inserted into the vagina once each day for two weeks is recommended by the CDC.
If you are considering this type of treatment for a vaginal yeast infection it is important to discuss it with your doctor first in order to make sure that it is a good option for you. There is some research that suggests that applying boric acid topically with an antifungal called flucytosine is successful in the treatment of yeast infections in about 70 percent of women.
This study was conducted on women who suffered from yeast infections that were not responding to an azole based antifungal treatment.
