Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

I am so sorry that you are feeling this way.

What medication did you take?

I think it was metronidazole 2 pills a day for 7 days. Felt better but I think I had sex with my boyfriend sooner than I should have and its back full force. Please what can I buy to relieve this?
OB GYN Doctor: Michael Salama,
 replied 1 year ago

Yes, he should be treated as well for the infection or else you will get it again.

Please refrain from sexual intercourse until both of you are treated again.

Take 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of water.

To be safe, boil the water and let it cool down to room temperature.

You may also use it when it is slightly warm. Add the tbsp of apple cider vinegar to this clean water.

Now rinse your vagina with this water.

Do this 2-3 times a day.

You can also take an ice pack, and cover it in a clean cloth and lay on the lips of your vagina for approximately one hour. You could also try immersing the clean cloth in witch hazel as this could help soothe the burning more quickly.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
