Is this thrush?

well i am a teenager and about 3 weeks ago i noticed it is really itchy(sometimes very, sometimes not.) by my vagina(mostly outside on the lips and by my urine hole but sometimes by my vagina hole) and i get some white or clear discharge too(smelly) so i told my mom and she said its thrush and bought me canestan. she said it runs in the family. so i didnt use it straight away cos i had my period. now i want to use it but i want to make sure it is thrush cos you are supposed to insert the cream inside but it itches on the outside(thats why i am worried). i have never had sex and am 16. i am really scared. is it thrush? must i use the cream? thanx.

It does sound like thrush and the cream should help

Hi Sam

I also suffer from thrush. You do feel the itching on the outside. You would also have a cottage cheese like discharge.

If it's your first time you should get a proper diagnosis from a doctor. If you are sure that it is thrush then go ahead and use the cream. It won't do any harm but if it isn't thrush then it won't help the itch.
