Re: PLEASE HELP!! think thrush is ruining my life
I had recurrent thrush. Taking the medicines helped, but then it would come back. I do the following:
Wear only white cotton underwear, wash them in hot water with a small amount of mild soap.
Never put any chemicals on my vagina, never douche.
Never use spermicide
Wash gently with plain water once per day, no more.
This hygiene regime helped somewhat, however any type of chemical birth control raises pH, and it took going off birth control to kick the cycle for good.
Also, if you don't use condoms, esp if he is uncircumcised, he could be reinfecting you.
If the itching continues but the pain and discharge are gone, it's possible you have a skin irritation going on. This can also be not good.
Hang in there!
