Olivia’s personal remedies for dealing with yeast infections would be focusing on repopulating good bacteria (probiotics) that fight yeast overgrowth and restore balance to the gut and vagina naturally. There are specific brands of probiotics that are designed solely for this purpose and contain beneficial vaginal flora (Femdophilus, etc). She also uses coconut oil directly on the outer and inner vagina, as coconut oil is highly anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, etc. This would usually provide immediate relief of several of the symptoms, including itching and irritation. Reapply as necessary throughout the day. During the time of infection, she would also avoid foods that contribute to Traditional Chinese Medicine’s concept of “dampness” (i.e. greasy/dairy/sugary foods).
