Bad dose of Thrush
I am going through a bad dose of thrush at the moment.

I took the oral tablet yesterday and used a pessary overnight and also applied cream, but today there is still some discharge and loads of pain and burning. I have applied cream as directed and have just now applied some live yoghurt, and this was so soothing. I have applied this internally and externally.
What else can I do? I thought the pessary and the tablet would work on their own, but they haven't. Is it too early yet to expect results?

Re: Bad dose of Thrush
The tablet can take several days to show its full benefit. I'd give it a little more time.

Meanwhile, a lukewarm bath can wash away the nasty discharge and ease the burning.
