    dixie,

     

    I hope you have found some relief by now, but I wanted to weigh in on this question.  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I'm not convinced that baking soda would be that effective for a yeast infection.  I've seen accounts that claim it both does and does not work, but when there are proven medications out there that are known to work, I would go with those.  There are many over-the-counter creams that are quite effective and much faster than baking soda could be.

     

    If you did try it though, please let us know how it turned out.

     

    Best of luck,

    James
