Post subject: Thrush Again :o(
Sorry for the yucky subject .... but need sum help!

Since having my son iv had thrush 6times! Id had it twice, yrs before, but since having him it keeps re occuring and its really starting to get me down Sad

Iv been to the doctors everytime its come bk and they prescribe me a tablet to take and it goes about 3 days later and comes bk within 2 wks of clearing! It flares up every time my period is due and in between periods! Doctors hav also dun various swabs and it just comes bk as positive 4 thrush!

Im so fed up .... Last nite I was crying cos it was hurting so much and my bf just laughs! Grrrr, if he had the same prob on his bits he'd be crying too!!

Had any1 had the same problem?! Any tips how I can keep it at bay or help get rid! ( Baring in mind i have tried just about everything!!! )

Hi Vicky

Its awful isnt it.... really gets me down! Ur poor daughter, getting it at only 4 yrs old!

I drink cramberry juice everyday!! I buy stacks of the stuff lol!

Doctors also told me that its hormones that cause it and that I havnt got enough good bacteria to fight it off, so I started buying Those activia yogurts, but stilll getting it

hey Charlie - I've had it for years too, I get a cream called Daktacort, which is a steroid cream, from the doc - it relieves the itching massively, and takes down the redness loads. Also helps in getting rid of the thrush a bit quicker.

yeah i've been told dipping a tapon in pure natural yoghurt and putting it in works well but i've never been brave enough to try! I get thrush lots not sure why but i do drink a lot of cranberry juice because all the ladies in my family seem to get urinary tract infections all the time which sucks! My mw said i'll prob geta lot of thrush and things during my pregnancy if i'm prone to them anyway!

I also find that the canestan cream really works and the pessary thingy although it is a bit gross!

hope this helps, your poor little girl thats no fun having it at 4!

To be honest the yogurt dosnt help, its nice and cool at first but it makes you feel wet and uncomfortable! (sorry!!)
Im afraid i cant help with this one, ive only had thrush 3 times, the first time i was pregnant and my lady bits swelled up 3 times their size! i had to walk like john wayne for 3 days it was so awful!
I think some people are just suspectable to thrush unfortunatley it looks like your one of them Sad
try not to use soap/bath foam that will irritate it, and dont scratch it lol ( easier said than done!!)
Why is is men neve have to put up with these problems, when they have thruh they wouldnt even know it half the time!

hi, yes your doctor is right!

Diabetes

Women with diabetes are more likely to get thrush than are women who do not have diabetes. This is because diabetes increases blood sugar levels, which may, in turn, increase the sugar in vaginal secretions. Diabetic women also tend to have high sugar levels in their urine, and this may contribute to thrush by feeding yeast in the genital area just outside of the vagina.

( my 12 year old has just been diagnosed with diabetes type 1 ( she has cystic fibrosis too so its CF related diabetes!)

When i was pregnant the midwive wanted me 2 hav a gluten test ( would this be for diabetes?) However, I never ended up having it as I then got a kidney infection and felt too ill, as it went on for 3 weeks!

I wonder if I should ask my doctor about sending me for a blood test? Is this how ur daughter was diagnosed of having it?
