Brief Answer:
Please take antifungal to resolve issue

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
Firstly it is important for me to know what is the area of involvement with yeast/ fungus.
From the description provided I presume either you are talking about yeast infection of groins or vagina.
Yeast infection can be treated with oral and topical antifungals. If vaginal infection is there vaginal suppositories help too.
Wear cotton clothes which are not occlusive.
After bathing dry the area properly and dust with antifungal powder
shave your pubic hair regularly.
In diet increase the intake of probiotics. In general only use of supplements won't help control yeast. So there is no pint raking vital flora and other supplements mentioned.
Avoid washing the area with soap as alkaline nature of soap can disturb normal vaginal flora.
Also if having recurrent infection, get your blood sugar checked.

Please elaborate a bit about your concern specifically mentioning the area of yeast infection.
Hope this helped.
Take care
