Can amoxicillin be used to treat a bacterial vaginitis infection?
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Nov 10, 2020.
Amoxicillin may help to a certain extent, but is not totally useful for treatment of bacterial vaginitis which occurs due to an increase in the number of several types of anaerobic bacteria that are normally present in the vagina.
Metronidazole seems to be the most effective treatment for anaerobic bacteria.
