Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines offer patients the convenience of being actively involved in self-treatment of certain illnesses. This article gives an overview of the vaginal preparations available OTC. Women who have previously suffered a similar vaginal infection or condition may therefore be able to manage a repeat episode. It is however important to refer women with a first-time infection or new symptoms to the doctor.
