Welcome to ehealthforum,
Vaginal infections can be recurrent. Consider getting started on appropriate treatment at the earliest and get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having multiple partners. Avoid unprotected sexual contact. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
