i fyou like to hear my advise please read.I have had experience in natural healing. Some of it , while painful added to my knowledge and was perfectly okay because in accordance with holistic healing it never caused permanent damage. Only side effect was curing something unintended. Now as to the advice I must warn you the garlic is a powerful and overwhelming source (alt. med.) When placed on the skin for infection I had, it literally burned a hole in little over a day! I think inside a vagina is same and you may not even notice ( can't see in there) if it does damage. You may need to make a weaker solution or decotion to apply. As for yeast / candida I found that pink grapefruit has worked when taken daily to get control. It's the lycopene folate , also in watermelons. Try and let me know either way if you did or didn't and results. I am studying effects on everyone I talk with.
