Yeast infection and probiotics go hand in hand. Doctors all over the world recommend beneficial probiotic bacteria to help treat and prevent all sorts of issues, one of them being yeast infections. These yeast infection probiotic supplements take the form of either liquid, powder or more recently, pills and can be used to cure candida symptoms such as vaginal itching and discharge, diarrhea and white spots on the tongue.

It is important that your chosen probiotic supplement contains at least 1-2 million live cultures, more is considered better, and should be used each and every day until the yeast infection clears up.

If you are a constant sufferer of these types of candida infections then consistent use of probiotic supplements should be considered to help prevent further outbreaks and therefore continued use is advised.

Alongside this, it is recommended that you avoid eating sugary foods, as yeast feeds on sugar and this can cause yeast overgrowth resulting in infection.
