Thrush is an infectious fungal disease, the causative agent of which is a fungus of the genus Candida. In the medical literature, this disease is known as candidiasis, because of the generic name of the causative agent of the disease. It is noteworthy that candida is an integral part of the normal microflora of the vast majority of mankind. They inhabit the mouth, the intestines, and also the vagina. Thus, we can say that the fungus of the genus Candida is a conditionally pathogenic agent of the disease.
With thrush can be effectively managed. However, vigilance and timely treatment to a doctor has not yet been canceled. Self-medication of thrush cannot give any result, and in the worst case, damage the health of a woman. Therefore, the only way out of the situation will be a visit to a doctor who will take into account all the features of your illness (as well as other chronic diseases) and prescribe a treatment regimen. All the medicines for thrush can be divided into two large groups – these are preparations for external use (local drugs), as well as drugs taken internally.
Advantages of using local antifungal agents are several. First, the therapeutic effect after their application occurs quickly enough. Sometimes unpleasant symptoms disappear after the first use of the drug. However, this does not mean that the treatment should be terminated. Secondly, the local use of any drug is always much safer than the medication taken orally. That is, the side effects of local antifungal drugs are much less.
