  • Had anyone tried Gentian Violet for vaginal yeast infection?

    I've had a yeast infection on and off (really it's probably one that won't fully go away) for almost a year now. I've been to the doctor, that stuff worked for a bit, but it came back. I've tried the OTC stuff 4 or 5 times. Same results. I've tried every home remedy but this one.

    My questions are Did it work for you? How long did it stain your skin?

    All of the info I can find on it is about mothers putting it on their nipples and their baby's mouth for oral thrush. No one seems to be sharing their experience with using it vaginally.
