ARRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I have had thrush since last monday due to antibiotics I was taking for a nasty UTI. I have only been using the caneston external cream as my doctor sugested and he said use it for 10 days and if it still hasn't cleared then I can use the caneston pessary as it is prob internal as well - It's now day 7 of using the external cream and I thought it was getting better last night - but it's been so bad today I have had to ITCH it!!!! I know I shouldn't, but I couldn't bare the itching anymore.....so I itched it with a wet flannel and now it's not only itching worse but stinging like mad. Feel so crap! Is anyone else suffering with thrush? How do you stop yourself from itching it TMI: but we all know that those few seconds you DO itch it, it's utter bliss!!!) ?!
