Been on strong antibiotics and now I think I may have thrush. Any quick fixes out there you wouldn’t mind telling me. Thanks so much. This is one embarrassed mum.

  • I’ve heard that natural yoghurt (applied, not consumed) can help. Never tried it, though.

  • Not sure it falls under natural but i use femfresh all the time it’s brilliant! I got bad thrush when pregnant and have used this ever since and never had it again!

  • Natural yoghurt on a tampon is what I’ve heard works.

  • Canestan cream is the best way to treat it & I was told probiotics would help clear the internal problem.

  • I’d just get to the pharmacy fast and get a tablet. Natural doesn’t work longterm and you’ll probably only put off getting treatment anyway. Probiotics will help too. Good luck.

  • ive heard of having a vinegar bath or putting natural yoghurt on a tampon and inserting it!
