Hi I'm just over a bad case of thrush and bacterial vaganosis , most likely brought on by steroid use , the canesten hc cream reacted and made me raw so for 2 weeks I stopped everything , steroid , canesten , coconut oil , bakin soda washes on my gp orders to let the skin heal , anyway I normally just suffer with burning like my skin is inflamed a bit and skin sore to touch so iv gone back on the steroid once a day and after 5 days the sireness and burning are almost gone , so do I keep using the steroid for the recommended once a day for a month and then 1 every second day for a month until I'm down to 2 a wk ? I think if I cut down now though my inflamation will return as it did before when I cut bk steroid , I'm so afraid of getting the thrush again so I'm not using coconut oil or washing between toilet as I don't feel urine burns me , I think doing all this gave me thrush in the first place and I didn realise I had it until it was at overgrowth stage and now 3 weeks later I have thrush on my tongue !! what should I do about steroid use and coconut oil etc , I must add I havnt been diagnosed with ls yet but gyne thinks I have it from symptoms and private app is 7 Mths away !!! I'm so scared of the steroid but need it to keep burning and soreness away
