Thrush is a fungal infection. It is caused by an overgrowth of yeast, typically Candida albicans, and can sometimes be triggered by taking a course of antibiotics. Thrush is very common and around 75% of women experience at least one thrush infection in their lifetime.
The symptoms of a thrush infection include thick discharge, itching, and soreness around the genitals. It is best to get your symptoms checked out, but we stock some simple remedies you can use at home, including medicated creams, pessaries, and anti-fungal capsules from top brands such as Canesten and Vagisil. Use topical creams to soothe the itching and capsules to treat the infection from the inside.
