Help! I've had a yeast infection for the past week. It took me a couple days to admit to myself that I had a yeast infection and that I had to deal with it but I wanted to give tea tree oil a go over messy yogurt or monistat (yuck). I soaked a sea sponge in water with 5 drops of tea tree oil and I have been redoing that solution twice a day but most nights I go without to check if it did the trick. It's been 3 or 4 days and so far all it offers is relief - I still have a yeast infection. Am I doing something wrong? I was really hoping this would work. Thanks in advance.
