When you get Candida on an highly visible area such as your lips it becomes very embarrassing. To get a yeast infection where it is plainly visible might be taken as something else other than a yeast infection. Candida in the mouth is often called Oral Thrush.
According to Yogawiz, Oral Thrush attacks people who have a compromised immune system http://www.yogawiz.com/blog/home-remedies/oral-treatment-candidiasis-lip-fungus.html. If you have a compromised immune system, strengthening it will be helpful.
If you do have Oral Thrush, besides strengthening your body to get rid of it, there are things you can do to get rid of the parts that are visible, such as what is on your lips. When you have Candida on your lips it gets embarrassing and very difficult. Candida thrives on moisture, and the lips are a perfect environment for Candida to breed. If you don’t put any kind of balm, the lips will just be more chapped, but if you do the Candida will grow.
So a couple really good things that I do for Candida would be to gargle with Braggs apple cider vinegar with the mother. It has many natural yeast killing properties. It will kill much of the Candida and be very relieving on your body.
Another option that you have is Oil of Oregano. In it’s pure form it is too strong, but if you mix a few drops of it with coconut oil and gargle with it for as long as you can handle it. One last thing you should do is take Coconut oil and put it on your lips if you have Candida on it. Coconut oil naturally kills Candida, and it will relieve your chapped lips as well.
