How to use scent leaf to cure yeast infection.
It is on record that many ladies douch and steam with scent leaves to relief or cure vaginal yeast infection. The truth is scent leaf have no antifungal properties and so cannot be used to treat yeast infection or candidiasis. Using or inserting scent leaf to cure infection will not really work, instead the practice will introduce worse form of toilet infection (bacterial vaginosis).
Meanwhile, what is yeast infection?
Vaginal discharge that is thick, whitish, looks like cheese and feels like yogurt, is often due to yeast infection. But it can be easily treated.
Vaginal yeast infection or vulvovaginal candidiasis usually occurs when the healthy yeast that usually lives in your vagina grows out of control.
9 out of every 10 women will have a yeast infection at some point in their life.
What causes yeast infection?
1. Use of antibiotics (which lowers the amount of #lactobacillus, the good bacteria in the vagina)
3. Hormone imbalance
4. Anything that weakens your immune system like;
• lack of sleep
• HIV/AIDS, etc
What are the symptoms of yeast infection?
Apart from the thick, whitish, cheese-like discharge mentioned earlier, vaginal yeast infection may come with;
• excoriation or
• burning sensation in the vagina
You can treat yeast infection with antifungal creams like clotrimazole, ketoconazole cream. Tablets like diflucan (fluconazole) helps to treat yeast infection not scent leaf or bitter leaf. Seek mefical help.
But if your symptoms don’t improve after 14 days of antifungal creams or tablets, or symptoms occur four times and above in a year, see your doctor.
No need to treat the male partner who is not showing symptoms. You can use male protection as infected male patients with candidiasis can transmit it to their partners.
Scent leaf cannot cure yeast infection. So, how to use it does not suffice as it is a total waste of time that does even more harm.
Please note that if you have recurrent yeast infection, make sure you go for a sugar test and HIV test.
