Trichomoniasis Self-Care at Home
The treatment of choice is antibiotics prescribed by the doctor. In addition to antibiotics, some alternative medicine therapies are available. These therapies have not been shown to be beneficial, and no rigorous scientific evidence supports their use. Home therapy should not be used instead of a doctor's visit and appropriate antibiotics, as this may allow the spread of the condition as well as other harmful sexually transmitted diseases, such as syphilis, HIV, gonorrhea, or chlamydia.
