Thrush

A range of treatments for thrush are available at Chemist.co.uk

Thrush or candidiasis is a common fungal infection due to any type of the yeast Candida. Thrush causes a painful and itchy condition when it attacks the vaginal area but can also be oral and can occur in men.

Oral thrush is most often seen among young children, the elderly, those with weak immunity and patients taking certain types of drug. In all cases it appears as a white coating on the tongue and can make swallowing and eating painful.

Vaginal thrush can be an embarrassing condition as the itch and discomfort can be severe. It is caused most commonly by the yeast-like organism Candida albicans, which is a normal inhabitant of the vagina, the mouth, skin and gastro-intestinal tract. When the normal balance of the area is disturbed, it can allow the Candida to grow excessively. If this occurs in the vaginal area it may cause a discharge, which if present, is described as “curd-like”, with little or no odour.  This leads to itching and soreness accompanied by redness or swelling of the area.

In men, candida infection of the penis may be seen after sexual intercourse with an infected partner.

Look at our range from top brands Canesten and Daktarin for external and oral products.
