How is thrush treated?

The treatment of thrush is usually very simple. The most effective treatment is antifungal creams applied into the vagina in combination with an antifungal tablet that requires a prescription. These medications treat the fungus that causes thrush.

During treatment, avoid irritants such as soaps, bath oils, bubble baths, spermicides, vaginal lubricants and vaginal hygiene products.

Please note it is important that when undergoing thrush treatment to be aware that antifungal creams can damage condoms and diaphragms. This means your contraception might not work.
