Our expert says:
Candida, the organism that causes thrush lives in the bowel. If they wipe the wrong way (back to front) they can often infect the vagina. Candida may also cause vaginitis if you use antibiotics that kill the "good" bacteria in the bowel, or if your immunity is low. Try giving her probiotics 3 times a day with meals (or activia yogurt), and she can use Canesten cream or get a prescription for Diflucan or Sporanox from your doctor.
