Vaginitis | Treatments

What treatments are available for vaginitis?

Treatment for yeast infection

  • anti-fungal, vaginal creams and suppositories
  • vaginal tablets
  • antibiotics

Treatment for trichomoniasis

Both partners must be treated for trichomoniasis so that they don't re-infect each other. Treatment generally involves taking oral antibiotics. If a female has more than one sexual partner, each partner (and any of their other partners) should also be treated.

Treatment for noninfectious vaginitis

Treatment for noninfectious vaginitis generally includes estrogen creams or oral tablets, which can restore lubrication and decrease soreness and irritation.
