Treating Your Candida With Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide can kill fungal and bacterial infections and can thus be used to help combat against Candida infections. Our body does product Hydrogen peroxide naturally, but it is generally not enough to combat large amounts of Candida, so what you can do is get a solution of only 3% hydrogen peroxide. I have seen people go way too far and get strong hydrogen peroxide and pour it on their vaginal yeast infection directly, and I will say that is NOT a good idea. If used properly Hydrogen peroxide is considered to be very safe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide.

What you want to do for a vaginal yeast infection is take 1 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide and mix it with 1 cup of water. You then apply it on the affected area. I do not recommend it, but I have seen people apply the hydrogen peroxide directly to the ringworm or athlete’s foot, but I would NOT do that for a vaginal yeast infection. I have also seen people soak their feet in the hydrogen peroxide solution, and you can get good results for athlete’s foot.

One thing to remember is that none of these treatments should hurt. If it hurts your body wash it off. You are not using so much peroxide that it should be burning your skin, instead use enough so that it helps to naturally kill the fungal infection.
