What Is the Alternative Treatment for Yeast Infections?

Can boric acid be an alternative treatment for yeast infections?

If you have chronic infections, your doctor may prescribe boric acid as a suppository, namely a vaginal insert, to help treat your conditions.

It can also be helpful if the type of candida that gets you uncomfortable is resistant to azole medications.

Boric acid can only be used vaginally. It may irritate your skin. It can be fatal if you swallow it. If you feel uncomfortable when using it, see a doctor as soon as possible.

Key word: vaginal yeast infection treatment
