Question: Any good thrush treatments out there?
Does anyone know of any really good treatments for thrush? I recently took antibiotics and now i’m really suffering. I’ve tried two courses of canestan pessaries and i’m using the cream none of which has done the job,its got to the stage where I cant even sleep anymore!
I’m at my wits end.
I suffered from thrush when I was younger and tried anything under the sun to get rid of it so if anyone has a really tried and tested method that has worked for them I’d love to hear about it.
I need some relief (i’m writing this at 4.15 am) :-(

Gah – I’ve had that sleep problem too. For 9 months it was so bad that I’d wake myself up with it, and never be ready to get comfortable – I’d even interrupt my partner, and he’s a very heavy, very loud, sleeper.

If you have a few dollars invest in

I got it four months ago and since then had thrush only once for 2 days.

It’s basically all these different things you can do at home, both to cure it, but also to relieve the symptoms.

(Trust me, it’s well worth it.)

I hope you feel superior really soon, I know how tough it is :(

    Due to the difficulties experienced when swallowing, thrush patients tend to eat very poorly, have very poor oral hygiene and may end up being dehydrated. Poor diet will mean a poor immune system, which will make one vulnerable to Candida yeast infections in other parts of the body.

    Thrush, like any other yeast infection, ought to be treated as early as possible. Ignoring the condition can lead to other complications such as infection of the stomach or esophagus. You can treat thrush by rinsing and flossing the mouth regularly, brushing the teeth after every meal, visiting the dentist on a regular basis, say after 4-6 months.

    Other ways of treating thrush is reviewing one’s eating habits i.e. avoiding alcohol, sugary foods, foods rich in yeast such as mushrooms and bread. This is because the foods will only promote the growth of the yeast as they feed them. Still on point, try including probiotics, such as yoghurt as it contains live cultures which will fight and eradicate the yeasts.

    Other ways to treat thrush is by use of natural home remedies as they eliminate the root cause of the problem. Note that because of the location of thrush, it might be difficult to establish the real cause of a sensation in the mouth. Proper diagnosis is therefore recommended in order to be able to eradicate the infection completely.

    Hope this helps.
