Candida albicans is yeast normally found in small amounts in the vagina. When the natural pH of the vagina is upset, this yeast can multiply and irritate the vaginal walls. This then causes vaginal yeast infection, marked by a burning sensation when urinating, pain during sexual intercourse, itching around the vagina, and a white and odorless discharge that looks similar to cottage cheese. You can quickly treat yeast infection at inexpensively home with a something as common as potassium sorbate.
Potassium sorbate is a very common food preservative used in foods like cheese, wine, meats and dried fruits. It works by helping inhibit the growth of yeast and mold, thus extending shelf life. It is said to have a toxicity level similar to table salt and is generally considered safe for consumption. Potassium sorbate can be bought in natural food stores and home brewing supply stores.
How do you use potassium sorbate to quickly treat yeast infection?
Take a tablespoon of potassium sorbate and dissolve it in a cup of water. Take a tampon and insert it to your vagina. Pour the potassium sorbate solution for the tampon to absorb it. This is a bit messy, so you can also use a syringe without the needle to squirt the solution into your vagina for the tampon to absorb it. Do not dip the tampon in the solution as this will cause the tampon to bloat and you will have trouble inserting it into your vagina. Keep it overnight and repeat until the symptoms of the infection discontinue.
If symptoms persist, then discontinue using this home remedy to quickly treat yeast infection and see a doctor.
