i've been having a strange kind of discharge. it's yellow / white in colour and has a gel texture. also, i've been very very itchy. i went to the chemist and got something for thrush; only problem is that i hate using the applicators they give with the cream. i tried using one applicator 2 days ago but as soon as i started walking around, all the cream came out. it's not working, please help, i can't stand this itch!

Try using Diflucan tablets instead. If you are pregannt, you cannot use this though.

Dear Norma,

Cream meds for thrush
When you insert the applicators you should try and insert the applicator as high as possible and obviously with caution and then put a sanitory towel on to prevent the cream from spreading all over.

My advise
There is a certain medication that has a once off applicator to use and 1 tablet to use. You simply insert the tablet into the applicator and use a little bit of cream on the external part of your vagina which is supplied, it is a very small tube. This is very good as the magic is in the tablet and the cream is for relief and prevention of the thrush spreading which you can use with ease in the evenings before you go to bed and if you are afraid of the cream spreading just put a santiary towel on and you will see the difference in about 1-2 days.

You can try the Betadine Douche, I also hate the creams.
Betadine you mix with water and use (doesn't have to stay in)
