How to treat yeast infection under my breast?

How do I get rid of a yeast infection under my breast? This is a question I’ve been asked a couple of times. Not so much as many of the other ones, but it’s an important one to answer.

First thing to determine is whether it is a yeast infection or not, and sometimes a swab will do this. Sometimes a good visual inspection will give you that idea, but generally in areas like the folds of the skin around the belly or under the breast or between the buttocks or even around the thigh area, if a person’s quite large, of course, this is going to be a perfect breeding ground for Candida. You’ve got the darkness, the moisture, perspiration, all that in that area and Candida is going to like to grow in that area.

The most obvious thing to do is to – if it’s possible – is to look at some kind of breast reduction or how we can stop this skin from sort of like hanging together there creating that. Maybe a bra or some kind of a device, but you’re going to spend regular attention to that area to help overcome it. This condition needs to be treated both locally as well as systemically.

I’ve had many women from Australia, New Zealand; I’ve treated with this condition over the past many years, and generally I find my satisfactory long-term resolution is weight loss. Weight loss will help because it’s going to help the body generally strengthen the immune system, increase digestive function, we can get the bowel back in order again, reduce the ability of the body to grow Candida internally, and also help it, therefore, externally. And externally, we apply things like calendula cream or tea tree oil. We have showers twice per day. We can get a natural kind of a powder and put dry powder under the breast area there to keep the moisture away from the region that’s causing it. I wouldn’t use fungal creams if I were you. I’d probably use a tea tree oil cream, as you can get these kind of products at a good health food shop, a good cream with tea tree oil.

So dryness, sunshine, these are enemies of Candida. Allowing sun exposure to that area. Keeping the area dry. Maybe some form of barrier for a while. Weight loss. Local application. Internal treatment. Internal treatment follow my Candida Crusher program. Go to Do my quiz on to determine if you’re mild, moderate or severe and then definitely treat the outcome based on the quiz. The quiz is amazing. We spent a lot of time and money on that quiz to get it perfect. It’s the best quiz online. So you’ll be able to determine with a high degree of accuracy how bad this is affecting you internally as well as around the breast region.

So give those suggestions a go. Thanks for tuning in.
