Probiotics: Try taking probiotics, decreasing sugar intake, increasing good area circulation to your vaginal area (loose clothing, cotton underwear, sleeping without underwear at night), don't ever douche, don't use products near your genitals that have perfumes or deoderants in them. No talcum power there, either. Cornstarch is ok.
