What are some home remedies to cure bacterial vaginitis?

Increase immunity. There isn't really a home remedy "cure" for bacterial vaginosis. If you are having symptoms of BV i would recommend you see your gynecologist. If you have frequent BV infections, i'd recommend taking vitamin d, omega 3 and probiotics to boost your own immune system. Do not douche! you can buy rephresh or luvena over the counter which sometimes help with the vaginal ph.
