Do you smell something and you’re wondering if perhaps its a clue you’ve got a yeast infection? What does a yeast infection smell like and how exactly is it different from how things are normally supposed to smell?
Well often, you’ll notice that a yeast infection smell will be odorless, but if the infection has gotten out of hand, there might be a different story.
If you notice a rancid of fishy smell, then this is a serious problem that you should definitely pay attention to and make sure you do something about.
It is probably also a good idea to seek out a doctor’s advice to make sure that you have a yeast infection. There are many things that can result in a yeast infection smell besides a Candida overgrowth, and you want to make sure you know what you’re dealing with before you start any sort of treatment.
A yeast infection is caused when your normal “good bacteria” in your body die off and can no longer fight off a yeast infection. Sometimes a yeast infection smell may be caused by another bacteria moving in and taking the place of the good bacteria. This is not necessarily a good thing. You may have both a yeast infection and a harmful bacteria infection at the same time.
Either way, you need to restore the biological balance to your body. You need to eradicate the yeast infection fungus and possibly any other harmful organisms. Here is a simple 3-step way to do this:
First, use garlic to eradicate the current yeast infection. Garlic has some powerful properties that help fight fungal infections. Simply peel a clove of garlic and wrap it in cheese cloth and insert it overnight.
Do this for a few days to make sure that you get all of the infection. This should help keep the fungus in check and also help to improve that yeast infection smell.
Secondly, use apple cider vinegar to clean out the area. Apple cider vinegar can help to restore the natural acidity levels to your body which will make it difficult for the yeast infection to return.
Then the final thing you want to do is to apply sugar-free yogurt directly to the area. Yogurt contains “live bacteria cultures” which are helpful to your body. These bacteria naturally eat yeast and they will prevent the infection from returning.
You want to make sure the yogurt is sugar-free though since yeast feeds on sugar. You don’t want to take the risk of doing anything counter-productive here.
Follow this three-step solution of garlic, apple cider vinegar, and yogurt, and you’ll not only get rid of that yeast infection smell, but you’ll completely take out the infection and return your body to its normal healthy level so that you can keep any future infections away. Plus, you won’t have to deal with that embarrassing and awkward feeling that you might be feeling due to that strange smell.
