Q & A

Vaginal thrush is a very common yeast infection (candida) that affects the genitals and the surrounding area. Usually, such infection develops in moist and warm areas of the body, such as the vagina or mouth. A vaginal yeast infection, which can also be referred to as vaginal candidiasis, affects approximately 75% of women at a point in their lifetimes; and will often occur more than once. Candida typically lives on the skin, in the mouth, gut, and vagina but cause absolutely no harm as they are kept at bay by harmless bacteria. However, sometimes they multiply and a few symptoms are visible.

Fluconazole is an antifungal medicine. It is usually taken as a single dose of 150mg to treat vaginal thrush. It is available as capsules, oral liquid, and injections. Fluconazole helps prevent the fungal infection from developing. It kills the yeast and fungi which spread the infection.

Can thrush appear in other parts of the body?

YES. Thrush can appear literally anywhere in the body. However, the most common areas are the vagina, mouth, and on the skin and nails. There have even been reported cases of a thrush infection developing in the lungs as well.

Can men develop thrush?

Thrush is more prevalent in women but can affect men too. Symptoms for males include a possibly smelly discharge, a tighter foreskin, and either red or white patches that appear on the penis and can sometimes cause irritation/itching. Such symptoms can also be a sign of other conditions potentially more harmful than thrush, so a male experiencing symptoms of that nature should hastily visit their GP or a sexual health clinic. The treatment process is typically the same as for women, such as the same creams and tablets.

How can you take steps to preventing vaginal thrush?

In some cases, a vaginal yeast infection will not be able to be prevented, but there are steps you can take to reduce the overall likeliness of it happening. Such methods include:

  1. Stay clear of feminine hygiene sprays
  2. Changing your underwear more frequently
  3. Wear loose, soft (cotton, silk, etc.) underwear
  4. Eat yogurt containing active bacterial cultures that replenish healthy bacteria

Are there any long-term complications related to vaginal thrush?

NO. A vaginal yeast infection shouldn’t lead to any long-term issues. However, some women will be affected by recurring bouts of vaginal thrush which can cause them to feel depressed and can interfere with their sex life. Approximately 5% of all women will experience this issue; seek further help by speaking to your GP if you are affected.
