    :oops: I don't know if any of you have had thrush since becoming pregnant? I read on the internet that it's very common in 2nd and 3rd pregnancies and also more so in the third trimester.
    I have been battling with it for nearly a week now and have finally discovered a cure. Diluted Tea Tree Oil (oil and water dilution) and just to douche with. Instant relief!!!!

    I'm not entirely sure what doucing entailes, but I just pop a few drops of oil on cotton wool, add a few drops of water and wipe. After having such a hard time with the itch, one wipe has cleared things up completely. Will add few drops to bath just to keep things at bay.
    Much happier knowing I'm not applying all sorts of chemicals,etc.
