What is thrush?

ThrushThrush is a yeast infection and is the second most common cause of a vaginal discharge (the most common being Bacterial Vaginosis). It is caused by yeast called candida, small amounts of which commonly live on the skin and around the vaginal area.

This candida may invade the vagina and, under suitable conditions, can multiply, causing the unpleasant symptoms of thrush.
