Suggest quick and effective treatment for thrush

Hi, I am diagnosed with Thrush and the doctor has givein me a Permasol wash PRN, chlorhexidine 1% cream ON & miconazole 2%w/w cream BD. I tried applying twice but it aggrevates the pain and itch so much that I had to quickly use water to flush. Also, my Clitoris & the skin between the anus and vagina bleed, especially the skin part which keeps tearing. Is there any cure that is quick and effective? :(

Hi,

I understand your concern.

If you have been diagnosed with thrush, then, apart using Permasol wash, I'd advise to discuss with your doctor to start oral anti-fungal therapy. Try to keep a good local hygiene.

Some of my patients have got good results in applying Greek yogurt locally.
Avoid sexual intercourse until full improvement.
Avoid eating foods high in sugar especially in simple sugar.

All the best!
