Can a yeast infection go away on its own?

Yeast infections can sometimes go away on their own, but it is not recommended to rely on this happening. Without treatment, the symptoms of a yeast infection may temporarily improve but the infection will not be fully cured.

If left untreated, a yeast infection can persist and may even become worse. It can also increase the risk of developing other health complications, such as spreading the infection to other parts of the body or developing a more serious infection.

If you suspect that you have a yeast infection, it is important to see a healthcare provider to get an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Over-the-counter antifungal creams, ointments, or suppositories are available for self-treatment, but it is important to make sure you have a yeast infection before treating it, as other conditions can have similar symptoms.

If you are unsure or your symptoms persist or worsen, it is always better to seek medical advice.
