People with bacterial vulvovaginitis typically respond well to treatment, and are usually cured within a week. The most common form of treatment is antibacterial medication and it can come in the form of pills or topical creams and ointments. These medications are usually effective at removing the entire infection of harmful bacteria. However, some women experience more than one case of bacterial vulvovaginitis in their lifetimes. This can indicate an underlying problem, which can signify anything from poor hygiene habits to a sexually transmitted disease. If you experience multiple cases of bacterial vulvovaginitis, talk to your doctor for treatment.
