will Balance Active suppositories help?
the smell went away a day later after starting the antibiotic and using just on BA suppository. However, there has been a lot of itch and pain. I think it may be thrush which i have been prone to since i was in my early 20s, long before i was sexually active. Over the counter treatments for thrush are not working on this ocassion. any advice?
