How do you treat a thrush infection?

To treat the infection, you can use a treatment that contains the active ingredient clotrimazole or fluconazole. Choose from the oral capsule, pessary or internal vaginal cream. These products all treat your infection, but different people prefer different treatment options. External thrush creams will help to soothe your symptoms such as itching.

Can thrush be treated with antifungal medications?

Thrush is a fungal infection that affects your mouth, throat and other areas of your body. It’s an uncomfortable and inconvenient condition.
