People with vulvovaginitis typically respond well to treatment and are usually cured within a week. The most common form of treatment is medication and, depending on the cause of vulvovaginitis, it can come in the form of antibacterial or antifungal creams, ointments or even pills. These medications are usually effective at removing the entire infection of vulvovaginitis. However, some women experience more than one case of 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 vulvovaginitis, talk to your doctor for treatment.
