Vaginal infection via dirty vibrator

Is it possible to get a mild vaginal infection (i.e. itching but no discharge or smell) from using an unclean vibrator ? If so, should i seek antibiotics or let it clear up on its own ?

Yes its very much possible to have a infection due to unclean vibrator.
I suggest wait for 1-2 days, if you not get relieved by yourself then
you can go for antibiotics or homeopathic treatment.

Drink plenty of water and can take cranberry juice daily ..... its also helps to reduce
other urinary tract or vaginal infection....!

hiii,
You may get vaginal infection from unclean vibrator.There may be only itchiness without discharge or smell. Several causes for itchiness like local irritation by vibrator or any chemical agents, yeast infection, inadequate cleanliness of genitals etc.
So you consult with your gynecologist to exam properly and take necessary medicine.
Maintain your personal hygiene and regular clean up your genitals.
Wear loose clean cotton underwear. Also clean your vibrator.
Be well.
