How can I help prevent vaginitis?

Practice good feminine hygiene:

  • Bathe daily with mild soap and warm water.
  • Wear all-cotton underwear or underwear with cotton crotches.
  • Change underwear and pantyhose every day.
  • Avoid wearing pantyhose or tights for too many hours, especially in hot, humid weather.
  • Use deodorant-free white toilet paper to avoid perfume and dye that might irritate.
  • Avoid using feminine hygiene products (such as sprays and powders) and bath additives (such as bubble baths and oils).
  • Avoid douching more than once a month. Douching is not necessary.
  • Use deodorant-free sanitary pads or tampons.
  • Avoid spermicidal foams, gels, and creams.
  • If you tend to get yeast infections when you take antibiotics, use an antiyeast cream while you are taking antibiotic medicine.
  • Have just 1 sexual partner who is not sexually active with anyone else, and practice safe sex.
