Applying Gentian Violet
I've been plagued with a persistent yeast infection that will not go away.
I tried the Diflucan that my doctor gave me, and then followed her recommendation to get the 7 day Monistat to help treat it when the pill didn't work.
I went off HBC and changed my diet around to include less yeast and sugar, and more acidophilus.
While I definitely feel that my yeast infection isn't as strong as it was, I know it's still hanging around for dear life.
I've heard a lot of you mention Gentian Violet as effective for treating yeast. I had three questions on it, if you'd be so kind.
1. What type of store would carry this? I've called a few local health stores and they seem really confused by what it is. I know there's always ordering online as a backup.
2. 1% or 2% solution? Does it really matter?
3. Where and how do I apply it? Just the labia or all the way to the cervix? With a q-tip or special instrument?
Thank you all so much in advance! I can't wait to free of this infection!!!
