In brief: Change ph

Change the enviroment of the vagina.
Fungi grow in dark, damp and warm environments. The acidity or alkalinity of the vagina are critical. An acidifying douche may help. Vaginal gels that lower the pH may help. Staying dry and cool may help. You may need an oral antifungal and eat live culture yogurt or buttermilk to restore normal vaginal flora. May need a culture for rare resistant fungus.
