*N.H.S. Choices

*[Editor] Gentian Violet 1% can be used on a tampon in the vagina to control vaginal candidiasis. Stubborn cases of oral thrush respond to being 'painted' with the same 1% Gentian Violet. The medication is non-toxic if swallowed.

Long-lasting improvements can follow a change from a 'commercial' to a more natural/raw diet, addition of plain yogurt, and in difficult cases, dilute baking powder. I have been advised not to use white vinegar, first, as it can be quite painful.
