Think I have thrush. Can't see Dr for 3 weeks, and receptionist suggested ER. Are there home remedies?

In brief: 3 day wait, eh?

Canadian national health insurance is great except for the wait to see the MD for a necessary problem. If the "thrush" infection is vaginal (yeast) then Monistat or Gyne Lotrimin (clotrimazole) Rx over the counter may help.
If it is oral thrush you might try a Listerine mouthwash rinse until you can see the MD. Good luck!
