Recurrent Thrush – how to get rid of it?

Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (Vaginal Thrush) is defined as four or more proven thrush in a 12-month period. Thrush is described as consisting of a white ‘cottage cheese’ discharge with associated inflammation in the vaginal area. This inflammation can present as itch, a burning or painful sensation during urination. In a typical infection, signs include redness, swelling, chafing and cracking of the skin. Women can present with one or all of these symptoms.

This often caused by fungal infection called candida albicans. Many women treat this by using an over the counter product, such as Canesten or Nystatin cream or an oral fluconazole tablet. However, often women are resistant to these over the counter products and hence the infection is recurrent. This is often treated by a prescription from your doctor. Compounding an antifungal to treat this resistant infection if often the solution.
