Cefadroxil is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, effective in Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial infections. It is a bactericidal antibiotic. And it might , I am not 100% certain, now the anticbiotictics (treatment) listed below I am 101% sure will help with bacterial vaginosis treatment.-
Antibiotics (treatment for bv)
Metronidazole or clindamycin either orally or vaginally are effective treatment.However, there is a high rate of recurrence.
The usual medical regimen for treatment is the antibiotic Metronidazole (500 mg twice a day, once every 12 hours) for 7 days or a one-time 2g dose.
In contrast to some other infectious diseases affecting the female genitals, according to some sources, treatment of the sexual partners is not necessarily recommended.-
Take care and I hope I have been of some help to you.-
There are actually now 7 different bacteria and 1 protozoan that can "overtake" the vagina and cause bacterial vaginosis. The Protozoan is known as Trichomonas and if that was found, both partners will have to be treated. If any of the others overgrow, it is debatable, but, if the person keeps getting it right back after treatment, both should be treated. There is an excellent article about bacterial vaginosis by Dr. James Christian at vaginosis.com. Different overgrowths require different treatment. Some women simply have a tendency to have bouts with BV from time to time.
