chronic thrush
Dear Doc,
I know this subject has been canvassed at length, but I really am having no luck. Have used loads of canesten, betadine douche, no luck, its so itchy and intercourse is so painful I can't do it. I had a baby 4 months ago. Could that have made it worse? What more can I do now, i would say it has been going on for years. thanks

Try looking in the archives for simple measures such as boiling your underwear, treating your partner, using a course of Canesten before your period,etc.
