Monilial and non-specific vaginitis


The major types of vaginitis are trichomonal, atrophic (post-menopausal), gonococcal, mycotic, and “non-specific.” Trichomonal vaginitis not relieved by topical cleansing measures can usually be cured by metronidazole (Flagyl - M & B) taken orally1. Atrophic vaginitis can be controlled by topical or oral oestrogens. Gonococcal vulvovaginitis usually responds to oral penicillin. A great variety of agents are offered for the treatment of mycotic and non-specific vaginitis.
