If you've got thrush, we suggest you treat it from both angles - the internal infection and the external irritation.
You can treat the internal infection with an oral capsule, pessary or internal cream, and if it's uncomfortable 'outside', you can also use an external cream to soothe any itching or soreness.
If you've never had thrush before, make an appointment with your doctor just to make sure that you know what you're dealing with, then once you know the symptoms, it's usually fine to self-diagnose. However, if you suffer from recurrent thrush, i.e. more than two infections in six months, you should see your GP for advice.

Some people swear by natural remedies for everything, and a thrush infection is no exception. If you want to try treating thrush with nature's help, you could try increasing the amount of pre-biotic fibre in your diet, by eating bananas, onions, leeks, artichokes and garlic, as this is what the good bacteria feed on.
You might also like to try soothing the infection with aromatherapy. Try adding six drops of
tea tree oil and two tablespoons of base oil to a warm bath, and soak in it for ten minutes.
