Bv treatment what would you use for a bacterial infection?

Bacterial. Bacterial vaginosis otherwise known as BV can be treated with a few different medications. They are as follows: metronidazole (flagyl) oral pills or vaginal cream clindamycin oral pills or vaginal cream (cleocin) tinidazole (tindamax) oral pills all of the above need to be prescribed by a medical provider. You should have an exam and testing done to make sure of the diagnosis, and then you can discuss the treatment options with your provider. Good luck.
See below. I would recommend the standard treatment of oral or vaginal flagyl. Intravaginal boric acid 600 mg at bed time provides symptomatic relief. The frequency can be gradually decreased to once or twice a week.

Can my cancer treatment increase my risk for bacterial infections?

Yes. Cancer treatment can lower white counts and therefore the immune response to bacteria. Bacteria is everywhere and ready to penetrate our natural barriers and with a weakened immune system the risk increases. Also with radiation the natural barrier of the mucosa, skin and the local immune cells in places like our intestines are all effected. This is why with get blood regularly for testing.
Perhaps. Many treatments for cancer (various chemotherapy agents, some radiation treatments, etc.) have side effects of weakening the body's immune system by lowering the number of white blood cells that are present. These cells are needed to help fight off various bacterial infections, so if a treatment makes you "neutropenic" then you are at greater risk of developing a serious bacterial infection.

How can treatment for a bacterial infection differ from treatment for a virus?

... Depends on the bacteria and the virus in question. Bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics are not effective against viral infections. Some viral infections have specific treatment (i.e. The flu, hiv, etc.) while other viruses do not have specific therapy.
See below. Viral infections are usually self limited and are only treated symptomatically. Some like herpes simplex and varicella-zoster are treated with anti-viral drugs like acyclovir. Bacterial infections often require antibacterial antibiotic treatment.
