How to treat yeast infection in Nigeria?

I've read your site, and I've dealt with a vaginal yeast infection unsuccessfully for a long time now. I'm a 21 year old girl. I live in Nigeria and the Candida problem isn't taken very seriously. What can I do from my own end to have some relief?
Thank you.

One thing that is completely in your control is your diet. You need to avoid sugars, grains and alcohol as they will only make your symptoms worst since Candida will feed on them. If you have access to coconut oil I would recommend taking 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, twice a day until you see an improvement in your symptoms. Also, Raw garlic is another effective antibacterial agent and to control the taste factor, you can slip garlic raw into other food before eating it. Slipping a clove of raw garlic into a chuck of tomato with sea salt can be an effective way to consume garlic raw without the taste being overwhelming.

To get the benefits from raw garlic, crush it and leave it exposed to air for a few minutes to fully activate its disease fighting properties. To fight a problem in your body, you'll want to consume at least five or six raw cloves a day, and consuming raw parsley or mint afterward can help with any breath issues. Try to eat leafy green vegetables. If you have access to probiotics I would recommend taking them since they will help fight this infection and assuage your symptoms. If you cannot get probiotics than consume Kefir yogurt. One last item I would recommend is apple cider vinegar due to being rich in natural enzymes that can regulate the presence of candida in the body.

It helps encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, which in turn minimizes the overgrowth of candida. Apple cider vinegar also balances your body's pH level. These properties not only clear up candida, though. Once you start using it, the benefits of apple cider vinegar will extend to all areas of your health.
