Question: my 20 year old daughter is at uni and has been suffering from very bad thrush since saturday and is now started to get headaches and has vomited today, she has made an appointment for the doctor but they cannot see her until friday, she is asking me if this is normal to feel like this with thrush?

Thanks for posting your query.
I hope thrush you are mentioning is vaginal and not the oral thrush [as section mentioned is vaginal and uterine health].

Common symptom presented during vaginal thrush is white discharge, itching and burning in vulva, discomfort during coitus.

Headache and vomiting is not due to thrush. It can be due to indigestion or stress.
But if headache is like migraine then you need to tell her to discontinue oral contraceptive and use some other method.

Thrush is usually treated with single dose fluconazole tablet or vaginal pessary for 7 days.
I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt, please feel to revert back.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.

I had a yeast Infection caused by antibiotics (Cephalexin 500 MG Capsule), because of this I was prescribed Fluconazole oral 200 MG Tablet. I took the tablet yesterday and now it seems I m spotting? I had my period at the beginning of this month. Is this a side effect I should be worried about?

Thankyou! I suffer from chronic candidiasis, and although have been meds free for 6 years, I recently got vaginal thrush and have been treated with 100mg Fluconazole daily for 14 days. I also have psoriasis there, diagnosed years ago, which I found a natural cream for which usually works. However, the last few days it has been burning terribly, and the cream is not working/helping. I only finished the Fluconazole yesterday, so doubt its thrush. Can I try using hydrocortisone cream 1% or will that bring the thrush back?
