The most effective treatments for thrush are antifungal medications that can be taken orally, applied topically, or inserted intravaginally.

Over-the-counter thrush treatments can also be applied externally to relieve soreness and itchiness.

Oral medications

Antifungal tablets are the most effective treatment for vaginal thrush.

Oral medications work by killing the Candida fungus, which clears the infection and relieves the itching and burning symptoms of thrush. Antifungal tablets are usually taken for 7 to 14 days. In some cases, a combination of topical and oral treatments will often be prescribed for optimal results.


Topical antifungal creams

Antifungal creams relieve the symptoms of thrush by killing the yeast that causes the infection. Most antifungal creams are prescribed for three or six days and applied intravaginally to the affected area once or twice daily.

Topical antifungal treatment usually starts to work within a few days. Sometimes, the infection may take up to two weeks to clear completely. It is important to finish the entire course of treatment, even if the symptoms go away, to ensure the infection is completely gone.

Side effects of treatments

Antifungal medications are typically very effective in treating vaginal thrush; however, they can also cause side effects. The most common side effects of oral antifungal medications include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Some people may also experience headaches, dizziness, or skin rash. The most common side effects of topical antifungal medications include stinging, burning, and irritation at the application site.

When prescribed a thrush treatment, your hub.health medical team will provide detailed information on potential side effects. It’s important to consult your clinician or pharmacist immediately if you experience ongoing or troublesome side effects related to any thrush treatment you have been prescribed.

Doctor and patient
clean laundry hygiene

Can thrush be prevented?

Since the Candida albicans yeast thrives in a moist and warm environment, several simple hygiene practices can help to prevent vaginal thrush. These include:

  • Changing underwear daily
  • Washing underwear in hot water to kill the yeast
  • Avoiding wearing tight-fitting clothing and synthetic fabrics
  • Avoiding soaps as these can disrupt the vaginal microbiome
  • Limiting antibiotic use whenever possible
  • Removing damp and sweaty clothing as soon as possible
  • Keeping blood sugar levels under control
  • Wiping from front to back when going to the toilet
