Question: Vaginal thrush treatment?
I have a lumpy discharge, and an itchy and irritated feeling vagina, which I presume is nearly certainly thrush.
I’ve only been experiencing the effects for under 24 hours, and have been using canasten relief cream but haven’t got around to getting a treatment to cure it yet.
My question is- I have a tube of Daktarin oral gel, used for mouth/throat thrush with active ingredient miconazole, would this also clear up vaginal thrush? If so, taken orally, or inserted inside my vagina?

Best answer:

I am sure its just a yeast infection and can get treatment over the counter at even Walmart.

    I would put the canasten cream in rather than something used for oral use..

    Hi – the oral gel could be used on the external surfaces of your vulva; I wouldn’t recommend putting it inside you.

    Canestan is the usual treatment. You can buy a combination tablet and cream now from most pharmacies. This would be the best treatment.

    Here are some home remedies, until you can get the proper meds:

    Vaginal Thrush is caused by a fungal organism called candida. Hormonal changes in the body, unprotected sex, birth control pills, wearing wet clothes and undergarments, consuming sugary foods etc are known to cause thrush. The good news is that you can use home remedies for vaginal thrush to get relief.

    First thing you need to do is stop taking birth control pills. Theses pills work by bringing about hormonal changes. And this is one of the reasons for candida infection. It is better to use external condoms for this purpose. Condoms will also prevent this infection from getting transmitted from your partner. Another important thing is to get treatment for your partner also.

    One of the best home remedies for vaginal thrush that effectively kills fungal organisms is garlic. You can consume raw garlic orally and also apply it topically by creating a fine paste. Use it for a couple of days and your problem should vanish.

    Another excellent home remedy for this problem is boric acid. Add 4-5 tablespoons of boric acid powder to a sitz bath tub with warm water. Make sure to sit in the tub for 15-20 minutes such that your vagina gets exposure to the water with boric acid. Repeat the sitz for the next few days. Once you get cured it is a good idea to use this method once a month as a preventive measure.

    To speed up the process to cure candida infection it is best to avoid foods that aid the candida organism. Avoid foods like – pickles, bread, pizza, bagels, croissants, sugar, beer, sprouts, mushrooms and any other food that has yeast in any form.

    Always remember that home remedies for vaginal thrush may not give you instant results but these are effective in the long run and they don’t produce any side effects.

    Good luck.
