Answer

A German study has suggested that a 6-day vaginal application of dequalinium chloride (10 mg) is a safe and effective treatment option for mixed vaginal infections or those with an uncertain diagnosis. [13] The investigators noted this antimicrobial antiseptic agent has broad bactericidal and fungicidal activity with a low risk for antimicrobial resistance and posttreatment vaginal infections.
