Treatment includes medication and some hygienic and dietary rules. The drugs used depend on the cause:

* Clotrimazole (Mycelex) or metronidazole (Flagyl) for Trichomonas
* Fluconazole (Diflucan) or Nystatin (Mycostatin) for candidiasis
* Nitrofurantoin or Co-trimoxazole, a combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim (Septrin, Bactrim) for bacterial infection

Some rules to follow:

* Good perineal hygiene
* Sexual abstinence until symptoms disappear
* Prohibition of spicy meals
* Taking daily large quantity of water
* Strictly personal toilet articles and serious cleaning of the bathroom
* Prohibition of sexual risk behaviors.
