Default Male yeast infection..can't get relief

Hello all. I've been having a recurring yeast infection, according to clinic doctors. I keep being prescribed an anti-fungal, it goes away for a while, then comes back. It seems to come back after...stimulation.

I've been using Curel as lubrication during foreplay with my girlfriend or otherwise self-stimulation. I'm wondering if stimulation and the Curel is something that could be causing the recurring infection?

I am starting to become very depressed about this, my sex life is struggling, and I feel like I can't even self stimulate without it furthering the situation.

I really hope someone has some insight.

Try coconut oil, it is a natural anti-fungal. You can use it as a topical and/or put it in your coffee.

Purchase oregano oil gel caps

Take 1 gel cap with 1000 mg asorbic acid every 1-3 hours (every hour to start is best) during the day from the time you arise until you go to bed depending on how much your body can tolerate.

It's best to start treatment when you have a couple of days off and can stay home.

Side effects: flu-like symptoms as your body detoxes and putrid green tinged, foul smelling, controllable but diarrhea-like bowels as your body kills and expels the yeast.

Also take 10k vitamin D3/day for 2 weeks and then 5k/day thereafter to help your body heal and recover.

After 2-3 weeks you can start reducing the doses of oregano oil(ooo) and asorbic acid until you reach the maintenance dose of 3 doses/day. Also after two weeks start taking a good probiotic daily.

You can also purchase oregano oil in liquid form, mix it with coconut oil, and use it as a topical to treat candida on your skin and penis. Be careful with the strength of the mixture might sting and burn.

Thumbs up my candida cure

I've had a skin candida infection for 11 months. None of the prescription cremes or pills worked. I worked up my own cure using the following:

100 ml coconut oil
5 ml tea tree oil
5 ml cinnamon leaf oil
7 ml neem oil.

After applying the concoction you'll get a warm feeling for about 15 minutes. I believe that's the cinnamon oil.

All of the ingredients have been reported in the peer-reviewed scientific literature as being candidacides.

Good luck,
