  • Boric acid is naturally occurring compound containi ng the elements boron, oxygen, and hydrogen (H3BO3) . In nature, the element boron does not exist by itself. Boron is combined with other common elements, such as sodium to make salts like borax and with oxygen to make boric acid. The main cause of vaginal diseases is Yeasts. Yeast is a fungus scientifically referred t o as Candida. The specific type of fungus most commonly responsible for vaginitis is Candida albicans. The Fungal strains used… CONTINUE READING
