Vaginal yeast infection. Same as thrush?

In brief: No, Thrush is oral

A vaginal yeast infection and thrush are caused by the same same fungus, candida, but thrush is oral (only the mouth), and the former only affects the vagina.
Clotrimazole can be used for both, but usually different medications are used for the vaginal infection.
