    I've been suffering with thrush as well, I've been told to use coal tar soap as this helps keep it away and try and eat one natural yoghurt a day. As well as this avoid hot baths as its a perfect breeding ground for thrush! I know the canesten cream is definitely ok to use as well as the pessary but the oral tablets are a no go area. it should state in the advisory leaflet for vagisil if not google it! Hope this helps I know how horrible it is xx

    No problem the coal tar soap has worked wonders for me it seems to keep it under control I just use it once a day in the shower! The doctor will probably prescribe you canesten boots chemist wouldn't give me it but the chemist in my doctors had no issues giving me it :) eating the natural yogurt helps to keep the good bacteria out saying the bad but is more of a long term solution like the soap is! It's so un lady like the itching isn't it (tmi I know but it's just awful) xx
