Coconut oil yeast infection

I have a question - has anyone tried using coconut oil for yeast infections? I tried applying the oil directly to my affected areas, but it didn’t soothe my irritation. Instead, it left my skin feeling greasy and caused painful sores. I don’t think I’m allergic to coconut oil because I’ve used it as a facial moisturizer before and had good results.

While some people use coconut oil for yeast infections, there isn’t strong scientific proof it works. It can also irritate the skin, especially in sensitive areas. It’s better to see a doctor for such an infection.

It sounds like using coconut oil didn’t help with your yeast infection. Sometimes what works for one thing doesn’t work for another. If the irritation keeps bothering you, it’s a good idea to talk to a doctor for other options.
