Thrush from my Mooncup :(

So, like many other women, I've managed to get lovely thrush from using my Mooncup. I'm 99% sure that I've gotten it from washing it with soap because on the days that I just rinsed it under hot water, I was all nice and itch free!

So, now that I've gotten the itchiness, how do I get rid of it? I don't really think its a yeast infection or anything because there is no discharge. It started out as an itchy bump on one side, and now its just plain itchy! What should I do?

Thanks :D

Sounds like the soap!
Why not pick up a canestan pessary. I recently had thrush, not from a Mooncup, though. One pessary and it was gone like magic!
I have also heard that eating live yoghurt helps.
Good luck.
