Thrush & Pregnancy

I am between 6 & 7 weeks pregnant and still need to go for my first visit at the gynae but I am experiencing problems with thrush (Candida). I read in a pregnancy book you are not suppose to douch when pregnant. I used to use Betadine douche and it worked wonders for the problem, but what can I use now that I am pregnant. I know I should get to a doctor, but as I mentioned I am on holiday, what can I use?
