To prepare the chamomile infusion, steep 2 tbsp of chamomile flowers in a cup of boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain and allow to cool down until it reaches body temperature.

Do this procedure in the bathtub/shower, while standing. Hold the tea for 5-10 minutes, then eliminate it.

Instead of the vaginal bulb, you can also use a clean, single-use 10 ml syringe (without the needle!!!) to insert the infusion into the vagina. If the itching is acute, repeat the procedure two or three times a day, but if the discharge and itching persist, we advise you to consult a gynecologist.
