Is bv confirmed?: If you have been on recurring antibiotics for bv, you may have eliminated friendly bacteria from your vagina, and taking probiotic pills such as lactobacillus orally or intravaginally, may help.

BV cuts?: Well, BV usually does not cause vaginal cuts; however, if you are scratching and have open vaginal wounds, you may need oral antibiotics.

Not H2O2: Douching is a major CAUSE of vaginosis. Best treatments are prescriptions. Metronidazole.You can get pH balance cream and Miconazole (Monistat) cream OTC. Hydrogen peroxide is in the dust bin of medical history. The only effective application is to bleach hair. Do blonde's have more fun? ...Read more
