You need a diagnosis: Since there are several major types of vaginitis (as well as some noninfectious skin conditions for which the symptoms may mimic vaginitis) it is hard to say without knowing specifically which type you have. Yeast or monilial vaginitis is the only type for which over-the-counter medication is available, and even then only in vaginal and not oral form.

Yes: Sometimes difficult to clear, however, vaginitis can be cured. By definition, vaginitis is an inflammation of the vaginal tissue. Typically, the most difficult problem is determining what is causing the inflammation. Once you know what the problem is, then it is usually easier to cure.
