Is there a natural way to get rid of a vaginal bacteria infection?

There are several natural ways to get rid of a vaginal bacterial infection and keep it away permanently. In order to do this, however, you must make certain basic hygiene habits a part of your daily lifestyle. You can start with washing your vagina with a diluted mixture of organic vinegar (one part) and water (five parts). This will help in sanitizing the area.

Alternately, you can use hydrogen peroxide for the same purpose. Another remedy you can try is to apply cool yogurt to your vaginal area. You can use your fingers and insert some of it inside. The live bacteria in the yogurt will feed off the fungus and clear up your infection. A wash with a few drops of tea tree oil in warm water should also provide relief from the itching and burning.

In order to make basic changes that are long term, you must switch to all-cotton panties. Always wash your panties in hot water before wearing. Try to iron them after each wash. Try to change at least twice a day. Once a week, boil them in hot water with a dash of antiseptic liquid thrown in. These simple methods should maintain basic cleanliness. Try wearing loose thigh high stockings to keep your vaginal area as uncovered as possible. Always remember to wash up after you have sexual intercourse.
