How to Cure a Yeast Infection

There are two ways to cure a yeast infection — vaginally or topically (a topical over-the-counter treatment like
MONISTAT®) and orally or systemically (a pill, only available in a prescription). Prescription, oral or systemic
therapies can cure a yeast infection, but because they need to be absorbed in your bloodstream,
they can take longer to achieve symptom relief. There are also external symptom relief creams such
as Vagisil® that will help with symptoms, but they won't cure the infection.

There are differences between Vaginal Therapy and Oral Prescriptions, so it is very important to understand both
of these treatments.
