What is the fastest way to get rid of a yeast infection?

The fastest way to get rid of a yeast infection may vary depending on the type and severity of the infection, as well as the individual. However, some common treatment options that may provide relief quickly include:

  • Antifungal medication: over the counter or prescription antifungal creams, ointments, or oral tablets can be used to kill the fungus causing the infection.
  • Topical antifungal creams or suppositories such as Clotrimazole, Miconazole, Tioconazole, Butoconazole, Terconazole can be applied directly to the affected area and can provide relief within a few days.
  • Oral antifungal medication such as Fluconazole, Itraconazole, or Terbinafine can be taken by mouth to cure the infection from inside the body.

It is important to follow the instructions of the medication and complete the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve before the medication is finished.

It is also important to note that Yeast infection can be recurrent, so it is essential to keep a good hygiene and maintain a healthy diet.

It is always better to consult a healthcare provider; they will be able to make a proper diagnosis and suggest the most appropriate treatment.
