I do not have a full blown yeast infection, will it clear up on its own? or is it better to use the medicated cream just in case?
Use the medicine as yeast is an overgrowth of the yeast fungi and will only get worse. It is like mold spores in that, if even 1 exists, it is capable of over populating quickly. I have never had a yeast get better on it's own, they only get worse quickly. There is another type of condition called Bacterial Vaginosis, that can have the exact same symptoms and seem to be a small yeast infection. If there is the possibility that this is what you have, check out Vaginosis.com and read Dr. James Christian's whole article. The difference in yeast infections and BV is explained. Usually if there is a smell involved, it is BV.
Yeast infection have a habit of getting worse not better, the best thing i ever did to cure myself of this kinda infection is a no yeast or sugar diet, that means nothing with yeast in so i had soda bread, no other bread, no gravy with yeast in or yeast extract, you have to look carefully at products for yeast and sugar in them. No chocolate, no biscuits, no sweets etc, for a fairly long period. The benifits are with those two cut out yeast has nothing to feed on, and so the infection goes and you loose weight too. One other tip is eating Bio yoghurt the bifidus thing that is in these do help to sort out the bad enzymes in your stomach and this helps. Natural yoghurt is very good.
