How to Treat a Skin Yeast Infection Naturally
Use coconut oil. Coconut oil contains three different fattyacids (caprylic, capric lauric acids) that are fungicidal, which means they kill fungisuch as Candida and other species. These fatty acids within coconut oil killyeast by destroying their cell walls, so it's very unlikely and difficult for fungi to gainresistance against them. Buy a good quality coconut oil (it's likelyto be a solid instead of a liquid) and rub some it into your yeast infection 3x per day. You should see results (less redness and itching)within a week.
Coconut oil is also a popular remedy for fightingsystemic (internal) Candida yeast infections, although its taken orally in such situations. Coconut oil is also effective against bacterialskin infections and other kind of skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, which can looksimilar to yeast fungal skin infections. Try tea tree oil. Application of tea tree oil, an extract ofmelaleuca alternifolia, can also be effective on yeast fungal infections of the skin becauseit has strong antimicrobial properties and works well as a fungicide.
Tea tree oil also boosts immunity, which canbe helpful in preventing initial infections and reinfections of Candida and other fungi. Start with 2 3 drops of the tea tree oil onyour skin infection, 3x daily for at least a couple of weeks and see how it works. Tea tree oil has been a popular antimicrobialand antiinflammatory for many years in Australia, but has become better known in the U S.over the last decade or so. Tea tree oil can cause both skin irritationand allergic reactions in some people who are especially sensitive, but the prevalenceis rare.
As such, test a little on some healthy skinbefore applying it to your yeast infection. Consider oil of oregano. Oil of oregano contains a couple of differentcompounds (carvacrol and thymol) that are both strong fungicides. These compounds completely inhibit Candidaand other fungi via dehydration they dry out and eventually die. Oil of oregano is quite strong and can causea burning sensation on skin, so make sure to dilute it with vitamin E or some cod liveroil water won't work well to dilute because
it doesn't mix with oils. Mix 12 drops of oregano oil with the samequantity of vitamin E or fish oil and apply it your skin infection 3x daily for a coupleweeks and make note of the progress. Taken sublingually (in the mouth under thetongue), oil of oregano seems to stimulate the immune system and help prevent most typesof infections. Keep your immune system strong. With any type of infection (fungal, bacterialor viral), true prevention and protection depends on a strong and healthy immune response.
Your immune system is made up of specializedwhite blood cells that are designed to search for and destroy potential pathogens such asfungi. However, when your immune system is weakeneddue to the abovementioned reasons, diseasecausing microorganisms can grow and spread virtuallyunchecked. Thus, focus on boosting your natural immunityin order to combat yeast infections and stay healthy.
