Trichomoniasis - Home Treatment
There is no home treatment for
trichomoniasis (trich). But you can lower your chances
of getting trich or other
sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) by making careful
choices about sex. For example, you can make sure to always use condoms during
sex. For more information, see the topic
Trich is not usually
transmitted by contact with objects. But avoid using objects
such as washcloths or wet towels that a person with trich may have used.
It is safe for a woman to use tampons while she has a trich infection,
but it may be uncomfortable.
Avoid douching. It does not help
relieve symptoms, and it can even make them worse.
