Vaginal Smell Causes And Treatment: What are the home remedies to cure vaginal smell?

If you notice that your vagina has a vague smell that reminds you of fish, then you are probably suffering from an infection called gardnerella. As a result of this infection, you get bacterial vaginosis. It is this which causes your vagina to smell slightly musty or even give out a fishy odor. If you notice other symptoms along with the strange fishy smell, you should consult your doctor. Eating raw garlic is one of the easiest and one of the most effective remedies. You can also take some garlic capsules. Eating yogurt is another easy but effective remedy. Although some women do advocate applying yogurt directly on the affected part, you will have to decide how comfortable you are with this remedy. Drinking water is always a good idea, when you are suffering from any kind of an infection. This will help the body get rid of the infection. You should also ensure that you cut down on eating food that is spicy. Instead eat light food. Avoid sugary food.

Washing yourself at periodic intervals helps too. So does changing your underclothes once or twice during a day. Remember not to use strongly scented soaps, shampoos and bath salts. The strong smells will only irritate your vagina.
