AZO Yeast is a homeopathic medication that stops and prevents the itching and discomfort of yeast infections. I am a diabetic and having too much sugar in my system is what starts yeast infections. Many women are plagued with these infections from a variety of reasons. The infection is very uncomfortable and when you get one, you need relief immediately. AZO works relatively quickly. You have to take 3 tablets a day and it might start to work the next day. More than likely it takes a little longer, about 2 whole days before it starts to work. You can take it when you feel the first inkling that you might be getting an infection, or you can take it to prevent future infections. I had a nasty bout of high blood sugar that caused a recurrence of yeast infections. I'd get rid of one only for it to start up again a few days to a week later. In this case AZO worked very well. It did help to keep the yeast infection at bay.
AZO contains probiotics that are helpful in preventing yeast infections. It is made from an herb called Boneset and mistletoe leaf. It also contains lactose and other milk ingredients. I have a doctor that insisted I eat mass quantities of yogurt when I got a yeast infection. Yogurt contains a culture that eats the yeast and gets rid of it. When you take an antibiotic, the medication gets rid of all the good bacteria in your system that prevents yeast infections and eating a lot of yogurt puts that good bacteria back. AZO works on the same premise It does work, but it works slowly and isn't always effective depending on how bad the infection is.
