Treatment & Care
What treatments are available for vaginal yeast infections?
Treatment for yeast infection may include:
- anti-fungal, vaginal creams and suppositories
- vaginal tablets
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.
