HEALTH AND WELL-BEING: Anti-mycosis treatment

Vaginal infections, generally called mycoses, are extremely common since 3 out of 4 women will suffer from them at least once in their life.

In reality, vaginal mycoses are infections of the vulva , external genitalia and vagina , by a microscopic fungus which is a yeast and which is called Candida.

A vaginal yeast infection is always unpleasant: tingling sensation, burning, itching. The intensity of the pain and the discomfort caused require rapid relief.

Fortunately, there are natural treatments to treat and permanently eradicate fungi. Several essential oils (EO) have antifungal and antibacterial properties that are particularly useful in cases of mycosis. This is the case for tea tree essential oils .
