What are the symptoms of thrush?
Usually, when people think of thrush they think of vaginal thrush.
This is when thrush occurs inside and around the vagina, causing irritation and itching in your intimate area.
Thrush has some very distinct symptoms which can make it very easy to spot, the most common symptoms of vaginal thrush are:
- A white, cottage cheese-like discharge that doesn’t smell.
- Itching or irritation around your vagina.
- Swelling of your vaginal lips.
- Soreness around the entrance of your vagina.
- Soreness or stinging when you use the bathroom or during sex.
Can you use thrush tablets and cream at once?
When you’ve got thrush, you’ll need to treat the infection with fluconazole, but how do you relieve the itching and discomfort?
Alongside fluconazole, you can use an external cream called clotrimazole to soothe your symptoms while the infection is clearing up.
There are also vaginal pessaries, soft gel pessaries and internal creams that can be used to relieve the symptoms of thrush.
Can men get thrush?
If you’re a man who doesn’t know very much about thrush, then you might be feeling a little confused right now.
Can men even get thrush? Isn’t it a vaginal infection?
Well, I’m sorry my male friends, but when it comes to thrush you can suffer just as much as the ladies, as this infection doesn’t discriminate by gender.
Yes, men can get thrush and not just around their penis, but in other areas such as their mouth too.
What causes vaginal thrush?
Yeast infections aren’t a sign of bad hygiene, and women are more likely to develop thrush if they’re pregnant, sexually active, taking antibiotics, have a weakened immune system or poorly managed diabetes.
The symptoms of vaginal thrush include itching and soreness in the vagina, discharge which is usually odourless but may resemble cottage cheese, and pain during sex or urination.
