Thrush test

A nurse has said i have thrush over the phone by the symptoms ive told her and has prescribed cream to take, (actually think this has developed from taking antibiotics ) would you still go get tested or just run the course of the cream and wait for it go go?

Thanks

    If this is your first ever yeast infection they should really see you to actually confirm that diagnosis.

    Hi,

    You could try applying an anti-fungal cream (like Canesten) and then see if the symptoms improve? 

    Good luck, 

    Jonathan
