Is anyone looking at my question?

Hello, Thrush causes inflammation of the vaginal tissues. In most cases, this s a localized inflammation which may cause irritation.In some women however, especially in cases where there are repeated infections, the inflammation may be quite severe and may even affect tissues deeper than the vaginal wall. Pressure on these tissues during sex may cause further flaring up of inflammation and this may cause severe pain.In your case, this is probably what has happened.Please take Ibuprofen tablets 200mg twice a day as soon as the first symptoms of thrush appears - this will help decrease the severity of inflammation and reduce the pain. If you are in pain now, please start the Ibuprofen tablets.I hope this helps.Please click on a positive rating to leave feedback.

Why do I keep having it and it is so persistent when I do
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 10 months ago.
Repeated yeast infection is usually due to a deficient lactobacillus in the vagina affecting the vaginal ph. Taking antibiotics to cure the yeast infection further reduces the lactobacillus level leading to a flare up later on.I am sure that you have been advised to take lactobacillus /probiotic capsules. Besides this you can also take boric acid tablets which may be more effective than probiotics.Applying yogurt directly inside the vagina is also helpful.
