5 weeks post birth and breast feeding - how do I treat thrush?

Hi! I've never had thrush before but down there has been so itchy the past few days. It's not my stitches as they've already healed. It's all red down there- is this thrush? I'm still slightly bleeding, expecting it to stop any day though. How can I treat it? I'd rather avoid the GP and just buy something from the shop but I don't know what's safe whilst breast feeding??

Thanks for your help xxx

You can use the Canestan vaginal pessary preparations but not the oral ones when BF... well you could a few years back!
