    Don't know if this is the right board.
    Am looking for possible treatment/experiences/home remedies other than
    the ususal drugs for this condition.
    Any information will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Take plenty of zinc.

    Garlic, oil of oregeno and grapefruit seed extract could help too.

    Book up on candida.

    Sauve Lavender flavored shampoo had helped me more than anything. But, the lavender conditioner made it worse. I also use lavender baby wash and lotion.
