    Don’t know about a “natural cure”.Go to the pharmacy and buy the stuff off the shelf.A few different kinds to choose from.Really don’t know if they are intended for men.Sorry,not much help.

    btw, you can’t get a yeast infection when your husband takes antibiotics, you must take them for them to cause a yeast infection.

    Anyway, If you want to naturally cure a yeast infection, eat yogurt. Don’t listen to all those people who say to put it on a tampon, etc. Eating it gets it into your system the same way. You should also buy some monistat 7 (the 3 and 1-day packs aren’t as effective) because yogurt alone often isn’t enough.

    There are many natural way to cure a yeast infection. I am giving here abt Yogurt, Apple and Garlic.

    Yogurt with live active cultures can be used in a variety of ways from consumption of the product to applying it on the skin to inserting it as a suppository.

    Apple cider vinegar can burn if used full strength on vaginal yeast infections so you will want to dilute with water. However, with infections on other parts of the body, you can swish it around in your mouth or soak a rag and pat on affected areas of the body.

    Garlic tabs can be inserted vaginally should that be where the infection is but some people do use peeled fresh garlic pods as well, although you do have to remove them after a period of time.

    The symptoms (you may not experience all of them):
    – white cottage cheese-like discharge
    – some odor
    – dryness (can cause bleeding)
    – digestive problems
    – itchiness
    – burning urination
    – painful intercourse
    – a feeling of just not being “normal”

    Here are some safe, natural cures you can implement.

    – avoid scented soaps
    – avoid sugars and complex carbs for a week
    – air out the infected area while you’re sleeping at night
    – add grapefruit extract to your water during the day (balances hormones)
    – eat probiotics like cottage cheese and yogurt
    – shower frequently
    -drink lots of water and eat plenty of fiber to flush the infection
