Candida Question #57 Should I Visit A Doctor Or Take OTC Medication For Yeast Infection?

That’s a good question. That really depends on how chronic or severe your condition is and whether you’ve had it before, if it’s recurring, if it’s acute, there are many considerations here. If it’s acute and you haven’t really had it before, you can try some home remedies or some over-the-counter treatments. If it’s chronic and recurring, you’re best to get checked out and make sure that you get a resolution of this problem before it gets out of hand. You don’t want to have a chronic condition recurring, try home treatment, and just drive it further into the body.

I’ve seen many women with acute thrush issues, home treat, go to the doctor, get chronic treatment, then go back and home treat and end up with conditions like endometriosis, which I find quite often linked up with chronic recurring thrush.

So you can treat at home, but if there’s no resolution, you need to get checked out and a proper diagnosis before you can consider proper treatment. Once you know what you’re dealing with, then you can treat them more adequately or work out whether you want to have conventional medical treatment or natural treatment.

Naturally, I’m going to recommend natural treatment. And in my book, Candida Crusher, in Chapter 5, you can read all about this. There are many solutions and I’ve helped many thousands of women with vaginal infections overcome this problem with natural treatment. If that’s the avenue you wish to explore, then I applaud you for taking that step because you can get a good result with natural treatment without having to resort to pharmaceutical drugs and many women have.

So the choice is yours. Don’t let people push you into making decisions that you may later regret. Pharmaceutical drugs do work, but they work at a big price; a lot of side effects and suppression of symptoms and ultimately no cure. So it’s your call. You think about it.
