Apply yogurt (natural, whtoiut flavor!) several times a day and/or insert a clove of garlic (peeled) (one clove per day for a few days). I know it sounds strange, but yogurt re-balances the flora and garlic has a strong antibacterial power. (You might want to put a thread through the clove before inserting it to get it out easily).
