If you’ve ever found yourself in the unfortunate predicament of battling Thrush, take heart; you’re not alone. Thrush which is a common fungal yeast infection, will affect over 75% of women at some point in their lives and luckily, with proper treatment, can be managed and cured fairly quickly. While it most commonly presents in the vagina, it can also occur on other parts of the body as well, including the mouth. Needless to say, if left untreated Thrush can become increasingly uncomfortable.

As you may expect, treating Thrush will require medication and Loxdoc offers an array of options both in cream and tablet form. (Each method is equally effective, so we encourage you to choose the treatment plan you’re most comfortable with). If you discover, or even suspect you have Thrush, visit your physician so that he or she can help you begin a treatment regimen immediately.

Some of the most popular Thrush treatments on the market today are Gyno-Daktarin, Diflucan, Canesten Gyno, Nystan, and Lamisil, all of which you can order from the privacy of your own home via Loxdoc. They vary in nature slightly and depending on your symptoms some may prove more effective for you than others, but each of these is effective at treating the symptoms of Thrush, as well as curing it altogether.

Besideds taking medication, there are a number of steps you can take to help ease your symptoms, speed up your recovery, and (hopefully) prevent future outbreaks altogether.

How to treat Thrush

Often, Thrush can spread to the mouth, so it is important to brush your teeth often (2-3 times per day at a minimum) and replace your toothbrush regularly—especially during an outbreak. Many people also find that gargling/rinsing their mouths out with a salt water solution helps speed up the healing process. Try adding ½ tablespoon of table salt to one cup of warm water and rinsing your mouth out several times each day.

Diet can also play a huge role in eliminating Thrush. Because the condition occurs when yeast levels in the body become imbalanced, you may find it effective to add 1 small cup of plain, unsweetened yogurt to your daily diet. The cultures in yogurt are a natural Thrush fighting agent. You will also be well served to minimize foods and beverages that contain high amounts of yeast or sugar, since these things will only further feed the thrush. Unfortunately ladies, the chocolates, biscuits, and beer are not doing you any favors while you’re battling a Thrush outbreak.

If you find that Thrush reoccurs regularly, especially after sex, it is important for both you and your partner(s) to seek treatment. Even if your partner does not show any outward symptoms, he or she may still be carrying the Candida albicans (Thrush) fungus and perpetuating the cycle of breakouts.

Finally ladies, be sure to take note of the underwear you choose. It is important, especially during an outbreak to choose light-weight, looser fitting under garments made of breathable natural materials. Tight fitting garments, especially thongs, and those made of synthetic materials do not allow the skin of your nether regions to breathe as easily, and we all know that there’s nothing a fungus likes quite so much as a warm, dark place to grow.

We realise that many women feel embarrassed, or as though they are somehow unclean if they find themselves battling a yeast infection but this is simply not the case. It happens to the best of us, girls, and luckily, there’s now a great way to diagnose, and treat Thrush in the privacy of your own home. So, if you find yourself in a bit of an uncomfortable spot, we urge you to visit our website and begin the path to healthy, quick, and discreet recovery immediately.
