Is this thrush?

I am 30 weeks pg and have a rather nasty red rash in my groin which is causing quite a lot of pain and discomfort.

At first I thought it was just a bit of a sweat rash due to the recent hot weather which can usually be sorted with one or two applications of Sudocrem but this is different.

I have had vaginal thrush a couple of times in the past but am not sure about this as it is in my groin.

I can't get an appointment with my GP until Monday but don't think I can put up with this discomfort until then, could I use an over the counter preparation (Canesten) until then?

Is it itchy or just painful?

It sounds like heat rash - perhaps ask the pharmacist - they normally have a private room so you can talk about it without anyone overhearing.

Hope you feel better soon.
