Im applying canaston thrush cream at the moment how can i cure them and how did i catch them? i have a bad chesty cough too and when i cough i have pain from the ulcerated area, it also stings when my urine passes over the ulcers.. ive been visiting my dad in hospital where they have closed the wards because of a bad seasonal flu virus on the wards.. could this be the cause?
