Q.

Vaginal Yeast Infection

My daughter was diagnosed with a yeast infection three months ago.  She has been to the doctor three times, three prescriptions and they called yesterday to tell her it's severe and put her on a 4th script, metronidazole, 500mg.  She woke up this morning in pain and realized she wet the bed, she's 21 and a type 1 diabetic.  Could this be something other than a yeast infection?

Hi Try these they could help her. re-occurring yeast infections, just google each like this first one, garlic for a yeast infection, sea salt and boric acid.

Just google each one, one at a time to the www. to open and read.

Yeast infections and diabetes is a common thing and hard to get rid of, but things like shaving off pubic hairs is a good thing, a yeast infection dose just love the dampness of the hairs, always wearing just cotton knickers is a good idea, and when she can don’t wear any, this all helps kill the yeast.

Have a read of this.

Good Luck
