Question
Posted by: Amy | 2007/02/20

Whats the cause then?

I've had thrush symptoms for a while. Im red, itchy, sometimes it burns. Went to a gynae, a micro on a smear showed nothing- no yeast, candidiasis, no sti's, they found nothing! What could be the cause? Stress, food allergy, hormonal?

If the swab is clear, other possible causes are allergies or skin problems. It might be worth consulting a dermatologist.

it could very well be the soap you use or the washing powder or fabric softner you use. I have very sensitive skin, i can only wash with white soap, no coloured soaps as i get itchy etc when i do use coloured soap or bubble bath.
