Treating Thrush – Information on Thrush Care & Treatments!

Treating thrush properly, whether this is the first infection, second or even third, is important in preventing spreading and reducing pain. Thrush is a very unpleasant and uncomfortable yeast infection that grows in moist and warm areas such as the mouth, vagina and even between the toes causing athlete\’s foot. When thrush is not properly treated it can spread as quick as lightening.

There are many treatments claiming to treat thrush and while it is possible to cure thrush permanently and live thrush free the truth is that there are very few treatments which are both safe and effective in treating thrush successfully.

Symptoms of Thrush

Vaginal Thrush symptoms are: a white vaginal discharge which looks like cottage cheese, persistent and painful itching, irritation, redness of the vagina and burning sensation during urinating. It is advisable to refrain from sex during a thrush infection as it can be contagious. Besides these symptoms many women also complain with other chronic symptoms related to thrush such as a lack of energy, fatigue, joint aches and unexplained food cravings.

Mouth Thrush symptoms are: a dry mouth with white deposits and bad breath and pain when swallowing.

Thrush is caused by an overgrowth in yeast and sets in deeply rooted in the flesh like roots from a tree. This overgrowth can be caused by a recent course of antibiotics, a weak immune system, birth control pills, a diet lacking in nutritional value and even stress causes yeast to overgrow.

Unfortunately most conventional thrush treatments only partially treat thrush and leaves some yeast cells behind still deeply rooted which is why the infection flares up again only a few weeks later. This is the reason why many women are still prone to vaginal thrush regularly and just before menstruation.

Treating Thrush Successfully

In order to get rid of thrush infections permanently it is important to treat what caused the infection in the first place. Sugar is a major contributor to an overgrowth in yeast; by reducing your intake of sugar you will prevent the infection from recurring. For treating pain, itching and burning natural remedies are just effective at treating thrush as is conventional medicine. For burning relief use apple cider vinegar douche, for swelling and redness use aloe vera products and use garlic to get rid of vaginal discharge and itchiness.

Preventing Thrush

Introduce natural yogurt in your daily diet, this contains friendly bacteria which will help keep all type thrush infections at bay. Avoid tight clothing and opt for cotton underwear to allow proper breathing. Change sanitary wear regularly and use unscented soap when washing. Change your toothbrush regularly and use an antiseptic mouthwash.
