But then she got some spots on the top part of her legs and on her private parts , The spots have turned into red sore burns , when i took her back yesterday i was told that it is a bad case of thrush.

Thank you for your query.
I hope there is no reason to worry.
It is difficult for me to diagnose the case without seeing the area.A photograph would have helped.Yes, thrush can be bad.The surrounding lesions maybe 'sattelite lesions".The other diagnosis can be genital herpes which initially develops as small vesicles and then ruptures and forms ulcers.I think she will need an oral antifungal once a week if she has thrush or might need antiviral creams if she has herpes.Kindly consult a dermatologist if the problem persists.Hope this answers your query.Merry christmas.
