    Dear Shondrika,

    If  you have Candida you can use probiotics by mouth and there is another way to use them.

    I open 2 capsules of strong probiotics into about 1 oz of cool water. Stir with your finger and use a tissue to dip into the solution and wipe around your private area and in a little too.

    After that, you need to lie down to do this next step. I poke holes in top and bottom of a probiotic (Dr suggested this) with a pin. I use an applicator that came in meds for yeast problems. I inserted inside. Bedtime is best. The outer application can be done several times a day but it does last a long time. 

    Not sure if this is your problem, but this cannot hurt to do. I also take probiotics too. 

    In the middle of the night I use vinegar with the "Mother" in it. It is brown. That is a quick lazy fix.

    Candida is a diet problem and hard to do. 

    Let me know if this helps you as there is a little more info,

    The same thing happened to me a few years ago - constant soreness and burning sensation, very sensitive to touch. The assumption was that it was thrush because I had a tendency to get that. Turned out it was vulvodynia. This is when the nerves in the vulva area become overactive and hypersensitive. It can be caused by phycial or chemical trauma or infection, hormone fluctuations or can happen for no apparent reason. You can test for this by just gently touching the area with a cotton bud - you should just feel the pressure form a touch, if you feel pain then the nerves have become hypersensitive and are registering touch as pain. Vulvodynia is very difficult to get rid of (as are all nerve conditions) and can last for years. You need to see a consultant gynae or dermatologist who specialises in vulva pain. After 1.5 years I managed to cure mine, but it takes determination and persistence. I can tell you how I did it, if you like.

    One more thing - my vulvodynia was caused by repeated and persistent thrush AND the treaments  I used to try to get rid of it. I tried cider vinegar - DO NOT USE CIDER VINEGAR! - it burnt me and left me in agony and I believe that is what set of the vulvodynia.
