    You can use yogurt. Plain yogurt, no sugar, no fruit, with active cultures in it.
    I got this from a website. I’ve never tried any of it, though…

    Easy At-Home Methods to Rebalance the Vaginal Ph

    Insert unpasteurized, plain yogurt with a small spoon or spatula or vaginal cream applicator. Insert at night and wear a pad. Repeat for three to seven nights, until symptoms disappear. Douching with yogurt and water can help, too. It also helps to eat a lot of yogurt.
    "Paint" the vagina, cervix (you’ll need a speculum) and vulva (outside area including the labia or "lips" of vagina) with gentian violet. It stains so you’ll want to wear a pad. This usually works after one treatment.
    Insert a garlic suppository. Carefully peel one clove of garlic. Wrap in gauze and insert into the vagina. Leave in for up to twelve hours. Repeat as necessary. It also helps to eat a lot of garlic.
    Drink cranberry juice. Unsweetened is best.
    Insert Potassium Sorbate. This is used in home beer-making and can be found at wine-making stores. Dip a cotton tampon into a 3% solution (15 grams of Potassium Sorbate in one pint of water) and insert into the vagina at night. Remove in the morning.
    Drink or eat Acidophilus. It’s available in powder or capsules in health food stores or found in some milk and yogurt products. (Read the label; some dairy products have added acidophilus.)
    Douche with a vinegar/water solution. One tablespoon of vinegar to one quart of water, once a day. Especially effective when used with yogurt suppositories.

    There are none that I know of and lack of treatment will only cause the fungus to spread. Please go see a doctor, they will put you on anti-funguls that will clear up the infection right away.
