I've been using clotrimazole cream for thrush for a couple of days, doesnt seem to be helping and it's still really red, sore & itchy. Is this normal?

Cream not best. The effectiveness of Clotrimazole for thrush depends on adequate contact time between the Clotrimazole and the tissue in the mouth. For this reason a slowly dissolving Clotrimazole troche is usually prescribed instead of a cream. If your current treatment isn't effective, you might consider switching to an antifungal pill such as fluconzole. Best to see your doc and express your concerns. Read more...

Thrush doesnt seem to be going away and has gotten more sore since using clotrimazole cream for 3 days, also have bleeding around the anus now, help?

Upgrade in treatment. It sounds like you may need an 'upgrade' in treatment if your candidal symptoms aren't any better. Sometimes I'll prescribe oral anti fungal medicines to rout this kind of infection. I would guess that's what you need - so please call your doc for a follow up. Germs these days are getting tougher, and you hate to think that yeast has some resistance but it could. Time to call out the 'big guns'. Read more...

Been using clotrimazole cream for 2 wks for vaginal thrush, no symptoms now and all seems fine but its tender and red around the entrance, is it gone?

Probably. clotrimazole is an anti fungal, so it will cure the yeast but can leave the area still red and irritated. You can use a low dose hydrocortisone such as vagisil or hydrocortisone 0.5% to help the inflammation go away. Read more...
Redness. although the cream you are using is good to treat a fungal infection it sounds like either you still have residual infection or you have a different infection going on. I would try the cream in the area that is red for a few days but if not better I would see your doctor to determine if some other condition is there. Good luck! Read more...
