Hi MNI

Probiotics (e.g. Inteflora, Reuteri, etc.) are used to prevent Vaginal Candidiasis (when taking an antibiotic for example), and is not commonly used to treat these type of infections. Cranberry juice/tablet/capsules may be one natural supplement useful in treating the symptoms, but in general OTC products such as Canestan are more effective treatment options.
