Thrush is a very common infection caused by a yeast called candida albicans, which lives, in small numbers, in areas of the body like the bowel, mouth, and vagina. Thrush develops when candida numbers grow excessively. Thrush is, also, known as candidiasis.
Vaginal thrush is a very common complaint for women, and most women are familiar with the symptoms. In Australia, Thrush can now be easily treated by over-the-counter medication from a chemist, or pharmacy. However, if symptoms persist, you must consult with your doctor or gynaeclogist.
