*IMPORTANT* If you have never had a yeast infection and suspect that you have one be sure to consult your doctor or buy a vaginal pH test kit from your local pharmacy. Many sexually transmitted diseases can present with yeast infection like symptoms but will not go away with the use of yeast infection treatments. Save yourself some discomfort, maybe even your fertility and uterus, and have your first suspected yeast infection confirmed by a doctor. This way you'll know for sure what is a yeast infection and what is not.

This is a bunch of home remedies for Yeast Infection that I found at this link http://www.home-remedies-for-you.com/remedy/Yeast-Infection.html.

I have not tried any of these, personally, but I can attest to the effectiveness of Tea Tree Oil in treating skin infections. Tea Tree Oil is commonly used in topical ointments, creams, and gels used to treat fungal infections, so I'm sure it would be effective in treating a yeast infection.


Yogurt
Take a tampon and dip it in yogurt. Insert in the vagina, twice a day. Continue this remedy for an extra day after your symptoms go away. Make sure that you consult your doctor before you decide to use this yeast infection home treatment method as it is thought to be helpful only in cases of yeast infections and may actually aggravate a bacterial infection. A definite diagnosis is therefore essential before the method of Yeast Infection Treatment can be decided. However, yogurt can be included in a yeast infection diet or a bacterial infection diet to help control the infection. Yogurt is one of the most well known home remedies for vaginal yeast infection. Yogurt is especially useful in treating a Candida yeast infection and must be included in a Candida yeast infection diet.

Tea Tree Oil
A few drops of tea tree oil poured on a tampon and inserted in the vagina can provide some relief. It is important to dilute the oil before using it as tea tree oil is extremely potent and can cause inflammation if it is used in its undiluted form. Tea tree oil can be diluted by mixing a few drops of this oil along with a teaspoon of olive oil or sweet almond oil. Tea tree oil has anti fungal properties and will help to control the yeast infection as well as reduce yeast infection symptoms such as itching. Tea tree oil is one of the most effective vaginal yeast infection home remedies but it is necessary to first consult your doctor as some women may have an adverse reaction to this oil. Tea tree oil can also be used as a male yeast infection cure. 

Try mixing it with Coconut or Cinnamon Oil for a double whammy. Read the section on these to oils to see why.

Garlic
For non-vaginal yeast infections, you can apply garlic paste directly on the affected parts. This remedy is for other affected parts of the body and not for the vaginal yeast infection. If you do not have fresh garlic, you can dilute garlic oil along with Vitamin E oil and a few drops of coconut oil and apply this blend of oils to the affected skin. While garlic oil helps to control the infection, Vitamin E oil helps to fortify the skin and coconut oil helps to provide it with several fatty acids that help to prevent the infection from spreading. Yeast infection home cures can be used alongside other treatments to help speed up the recovery process.

Cold Coconut Oil and Cinnamon Oil
These are two of the best natural cures for yeast infections in both men and women. Cold coconut oil or cinnamon oil can be applied on the infected areas 2-3 times a day to get rid of a yeast infection. Both these oils have effective anti-fungal properties which are very helpful in killing the yeast.

Vinegar
A hot sitz bath along with some added vinegar is a great way to relieve skin irritation and itching caused by a yeast infection. It is also an effective remedy to arrest the growth of yeast and restore the PH balance in the body.

Vinegar douches can also be used but douching generally is not recommended. Consider discussing this treatment option with your doctor before using it to treat a yeast infection.


Diet for Yeast Infection
Yeast Infection : Home Remedies suggested by users
No Specific Diet
There is no specific diet that we are aware of for this condition. Of course, eat healthy, lots of fruits and vegetables, as always. Avoid processed foods as far as possible and avoid refined flour and refined sugar products completely. These foods can aggravate the yeast infection symptoms and can even cause the infection to spread. Drink plenty of water throughout the day as this will help to flush out the urinary tract and help to control the spread of the yeast infection. A diet for yeast infection should also contain plenty of vegetable juices as this will help to boost immunity levels and help you fight off the infection.


Suggestions for Yeast infection

Loose fitting undergarments: To avoid yeast infection avoid wearing tight underwear or other tight acrylic garments everyday. Use loose fitting cotton underwear and panties. Avoid wearing jeans, legging, panty hose every day.

External stimulants: If you suspect infection, stay away from deodorant sanitary pads and tampons. Avoid sprays and other such external agents as that could cause irritation.

Wet clothes: Do not remain in wet clothes for a long time. Change into dry ones as soon as possible and dry your affected body parts before changing into a new set of dry clothes.
