Because vulvovaginitis and other vaginal infections are common among women of any age, most women will experience symptoms at least once in their lives. In most cases, treatments such as over the counter medication and topical creams are available to for self-administration. However, multiple cases of vulvovaginitis or vaginal infections may be a sign of an underlying condition such as allergies (to latex condoms or soap chemicals, for example), poor hygiene habits, or even a sexually transmitted disease. Talk to your doctor immediately if you experience multiple cases of vulvovaginitis or if your symptoms do not decrease within a week of self-treatment.
