Thrush is an infection caused by the proliferation of the fungus candida. It is naturally found in the vagina, mouth, digestive tract and skin, often without causing infection. If the levels of candida get out of balance in the vagina, it can cause unpleasant effects like itching and soreness. Most women have a yeast infection throughout their lives.

Some causes of thrush are:

  • Antibiotic use
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
