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.
How do thrush tablets work?
Vaginal thrush is a very common problem amongst women, and the most effective way to treat the condition is with fluconazole.
Fluconazole works by killing the fungus (or yeast) causing the infection.
It does this by making holes in its cell membrane so the contents leak out, treating the infection and allowing your symptoms to improve.
How long does fluconazole take to work?
Fluconazole will normally work to clear up a fungal infection within a week.
You will usually see improvements in your condition within a few days, but if your infection is particularly severe it can take anything up to 14 days.
If you have taken fluconazole and haven’t seen any improvement in your condition after a week, we recommend speaking to your local pharmacist, GP, or health care worker.
They will assess your condition and decide whether a second dose of fluconazole or a different treatment altogether would be a better fit for you.
What are the symptoms of thrush?
Thrush is a common yeast infection that can affect both men and women.
It can be an uncomfortable or embarrassing issue, but it isn’t caused by poor hygiene and it’s not sexually transmitted. The symptoms of vaginal thrush include:
- White vaginal discharge that may resemble a ‘cottage cheese’ texture. This is usually odourless.
- Itching and irritation around the vagina
- Vaginal pain during sex
- A stinging sensation when urinating
There are a lot of different types of vaginal infection and it may be confusing to try and figure out if you’ve got thrush or not.
If you’re unsure, see your GP or visit a sexual health clinic for advice.
Vaginal infections are nothing to be embarrassed about and they can be cleared up quickly and effectively with the right treatment.
