That was my first thought, but there's no discharge? Is there always? I have just been on a period for over a fortnight (change of pill, argh) and wondered if I could have made myself sore with so many tampons!

(yeah yeah, I know, should have used a mooncup!)

Yes - thrush. Drink plenty of fluids and get yourself to the chemist for some Canesten Cream. If you've got natural yogurt at home you could slap some of that on!

Get thee to a pharmacy counter and purchase a tab of their finest Canesten.

even though there is no discharge? Sorry if TMI!

FrannyandZooey Fri 21-Sep-07 22:34:53

Oh yes the tampons could easily have made your skin irritated, or could have caused thrush

i don't think there has to be discharge

I went through a phase of being prone to thrush when my hormones were up the creek - never had a discharge, though.
