Vaginal thrush

Vaginal thrush is a common yeast infection caused by the fungus candida. It's usually harmless but it can be uncomfortable and keep coming back. This condition can cause inflammation, intense itchiness, and a thick, white discharge from the vagina.

We can assist you with treatment for thrush. Some medications can be taken once off and others can be administered for a few days. Also importantly, we give you tips on lifestyle changes you can make to reduce the chance of thrush recurring.
