Thrush?: Most of the time we don't use creams for thrush, which is a yeast infection of the mouth. Clotrimazole cream should be used externally (on the skin), not taken by mouth.

If it really is thrush, you need a liquid medicine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Oral?: Thrush is an oral fungal infection and can be treated with lozenges or liquid "swishes". I suspect that you are talking about a vaginal infection. These are usually treated with vaginal creams or suppositories. They can be treated with gentian violet but it stains.

Hi I am a twenty soon to be twenty one year old female and I have vaginal thrush, what's the best way to deal with this? Tablets? Cream?
Treated thrush with canisten cream 6 days. Felt better, had sex but it hurt and felt raw, even though i wasnt dry. Then burned and bled afterwards. ?
Allow more time: A thrush infection can cause the sensitive tissues of the vagina to be quite friable and sensitive. The friction created with intercourse would easily cause bleeding even when well lubricated. The tissues may take longer than 6 days to settle down. Give it a bit longer to allow it to resolve. If you keep having the same symptom you should see a doctor to ensure there are no other causes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
