Our expert says:
The ideal will be to have a papsmear done. In the interim ask your pharmacist for Canesten 1 VC, as a single dose to be inserted at night. You should also Apor cream, applied twice daily to the itching areas for at least ten days.
If you are married, your husband should also be treated for Candida, thus he should also use the Apor cream for a period of 10 days (applied twich daily).
A good idea will be to screen you and your partner for insullin resistant diabetes. Thrush is commonly associated with diabetes and is very hard to treat if the patient has this metabollic disease.
