can anyone remind me of symptoms. was v itchy and used pessary. still bit itchy but also have been very paranoid recently and seem to be able to 'create' illnesses. have a rectocele and this is making it worse. do you normally get a lumpy rash with thrush? or is that my buggered up fanjo?

Yes, lumpy, cottage cheese type rash, but not always.

Pessary might not work immediately. Get some live natural yoghurt down there and eat some too. Cheaper and works better imo.

good good good am bf also so the yoghurt better than more drugs. the external cream that comes with the combi is more painful than the thrush so dont want to use any more of that. ta

hum getting quite itchy now. do you think total would do the job or do i have to get some bio stuff tomorrow?

Live stuff is best.

I imagine total would cool the itchy/burny but I don't think it's got the right bacteria to readdress the balance.

If possible get the yoghurt up there (sorry, a bit tmi) but it'll work better if you can.

A good method is with a medicine dispenser, a child's one, which you can get from the chemist. A bit like a syringe without the needle. Does the job very neatly.

Hope it's feeling better smile

got some m and s yoghurt with extra bacteria. have loads of those medicine thingys. thinking i might wait to apply it until dd's friend has gone home grin. really peed off with my bits at present. thought i'd got through this rectocele stuff and sorted it but seem to get low at holiday tme and then it all seems worse. at least back in routine now half term over.
