Expert:  KemalG replied 12 days ago.

It sounds like vaginal thrush. You could try Canesten Combi which usually works well.

If this doesn't work, you could try fluconazole which is taken only once but you need to get a prescription from your GP or 111.

Tried caneston and it doesnt clear it so didnt think it was thrush. I'll see if i can get the other
Expert:  KemalG replied 12 days ago.

I see. In that case, please call 111 and they can prescribe the other medication. But, if this doesn't work either, you should see your GP or nurse for a swab as this could tell us what is causing the symptoms.
