Thrush keeps coming back

Last month I had treatment for thrush (ointment) and now I see the symptoms again. This will be the third time I have had thrush because last year I had this for the first time. I don't know if this is caused by the kidney infections that I constently have. For my kidneys the doctor normally gives me the Citra soda and Amoxycillin trihydrate tablets. I practise safe sex and I'm HIV negative so I don't know why this is happening to me.

Antibiotics can predispose to thrush. If you have to take a course of antibiotics, take Interflora as well, to decrease the risk of thrush.

Don't mean to scare you or anything, but .....

Has your doctor checked your blood sugar levels, and/or insulin levels. Apparently this also has an impact on recurrent thrush.

A lot of diabetic women suffer with recurrent thrush.
