Yes, there are numerous cures for vaginal infections.  It is most important for a patient to seek medical attention to diagnose the exact cause of the infection.  Once the infection is discovered, a treatment can be given to help rid the patient of this infection. 


Taking any prescribed medications for your vaginal infection should cure it by killing the underlying microbe causing your symptoms. However, vaginal infections can recur. You should follow preventive practices to prevent vaginal infections from coming back.
