Can anyone help?
I started with itchy symptoms 2 months ago and I thought it was Thrush. I took the oral tablet which usually works straight away, but 1 week later I was still itchy. I took another oral capsule but got the Cannesten one this time. One week later, still no improvement. I took the advice of a pharmacist who said I should try the pessary as well as the oral tablet. I took both and saw relief for a couple of days but then the symptoms came back. I booked a doctors appointment but it took so long to be seen that I tried the oral tablet and the pessary again while I was waiting.
The doctor was stumped but sent me for swabs. The nurse agreed I looked sore and said there was a really small amount of discharge that she thought was probably thrush. The results came back clear. I went back to the doctor who was not very understanding and just sent me for a blood test instead. They came back clear.
I'm really uncomfortable and I feel like I've tried everything - probiotic drinks, washing with just water, wearing no underwear to bed..
I have no discharge or smelly odour. Has anyone got any ideas? I should note that the itch started externally but then began to feel internal for a while and now it's gone back to external and getting worse.
Please, please, can anyone help?!
