Don’t get lured by the big advertisements and billboards making tall claims about curing bacterial vaginal infection with over the counter creams and lotions. If you want, you can have bacterial vaginosis treatment at home itself. Unfortunately not many women think about home remedies due to lack of information about these remedies. There are some remedies that even the doctors fear talking about because it could take away a lot of business for them.
Can you imagine that a simple saline solution can do wonders for your bacterial vaginal infection? Take a teaspoon of salt and mix it in a glass of water. Stir the salt well to get a saline solution. Use this solution to wash your vagina. If you regularly use this technique the balance between acid level and alkali level in the vagina will be restored. This will cure BV very quickly. Remember to dry your vagina properly after a wash like this.
Another simple technique that can keep bacterial vaginal infection in control is by controlling the moisture level in the vagina. Moisture helps bacteria to breed and expand rapidly. If you can keep your vagina dry by wearing cotton undergarments and cloths that are loose, this will help in proper air circulation. Air circulation will help in evaporating moisture and prevent the infection from multiplying.
Yet another bacterial vaginosis treatment that works like a charm is buttermilk. Drinking buttermilk made from pure goat milk is an excellent remedy. You can even apply buttermilk to the vagina using a tampon. Both the techniques will help in controlling the bacterial vagina infection. Make sure that buttermilk does not have preservatives and chemicals.
