Hi! 

A week ago today I went to the doctors and got told I had thrush. Pain while peeing, itchy, redness, inflammation, White discharge and bad smell. I took an oral pill for it and started using cantesen lotion that you rub in area and wash off in the shower. Now a week late I have strange blisters on the top of my vagina near the bikini line and some down lower on the lips. They are quiet sore. A warm bath helps. They are decreasing but still annoying. They hurt only because they are rubbing and are a little sensitive to touch. I haven't tried popping them. Can't get to the doctors til Monday. I will call tomorrow for my Pap smear results but any ideas? Google is not a good idea just comes up with the worst imaginable

    Could you have reacted to the canestan? I can't use it. It stings me and makes me even more sore, so I just use the oral tablet.

      Yes I'm thinking perhaps I did. Can you take more than one dosage of the oral tablet for thrush? I'm really wanting to pain/smell/discharge to go away and it's been a week today

    You can take a second 150mg dose 3 days later. That is what my dr said to do. That usually works. But if it is particularly stubborn you can get a 50mg dose that you take daily for one or two weeks - this can only be got by prescription, not over the counter. I had particularly persistent and recurrent thrush and the GP didn't know what to do, so I saw a consultant who prescribed 100mg daily for a week. That did the trick.

    I don't think I had blisters, I only used the cream once and it stung and made me red so I stopped using it. The pessaries do. the same.
