I have had thrush for around 6mths now, after going

I have had thrush for around 6mths now, after going on antibiotics for a sinus infection. Since then, I’ve been treated with a topical cream, an oral fluconazole, 2x6 day courses of pessaries and 3x oral fluconazoles, taken a week apart. Whilst, after treatment, the discharge and itchiness died down, the discharge has never fully disappeared and within a few days is noticeable again. Also, the itchiness begins to return after around a week.

I took Doxicyline (spelling?) in July after an infection from surgery on my foot, then in August I took about two weeks of Cipro for chronic prostatitis and now in September I took 5 days of azithromycin and on the 5th day I developed thrush. Is that to be expected with that amount of antibiotics for the last three months and how long will it take for thrush to go away. I am now taking nystatin for 6 days, somewhat better. It never hurt or burned, just a wierd taste and white tongue.
