Thrush Treatment - Standby & Immediate Use Treatment
How can Anytime Doctor help me?We provide this regulated, specialist service for patients who wish to obtain medicine to treat thrush. Thrush is caused by a yeast infection, usually the yeast called candida albicans. Symptoms of thrush in women include soreness and irritation in and around the vagina, with redness and inflammation of the skin and, in more severe cases, swelling of the entrance to the vagina. This service is only for women who have previously been diagnosed with thrush by a doctor or nurse and who could recognise the symptoms of thrush if they appear.
Thrush isn't that pleasant to catch but it is very easy to treat. This service allows you to purchase treatment for immediate use if you currently have symptoms, or treatment for future use if you would like to be prepared for a future outbreak.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.

Why are no prices shown for Anytime Doctor treatment services?At Anytime Doctor, we aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation and receive a diagnosis by a licensed doctor before you are offered treatment options. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.
How does this thrush treatment work?Your doctor can prescribe you fluconazole as a single dose tablet. The advantage of using tablets is that it will stop any internal yeast infection, which a cream would not treat. This tablet treatment may be more effective, in some cases, than pessaries and creams. A tablet is also less messy to use.
How to take your thrush treatmentYou should take this treatment as a single-dose anti-fungal tablet.
What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of this thrush treatment?All medication and antibiotics can cause side effects. Your thrush treatment can cause diarrhoea, headaches, flatulence and sickness, but these are rare. The leaflet accompanying the treatment will list some of the rarer side-effects.
When answering your medical questionnaire for thrush treatment it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you treatment.
How effective is this thrush treatment?The single-dose anti-fungal tablet is very effective if you follow your doctor's prescribing instructions.
Limitations of thrush self-diagnosis?The limitation of thrush self-diagnosis is that there may be another cause of your symptoms other than thrush. If this is the case, the treatment a doctor can prescribe is unlikely to be effective and you would need to see your GP for a face-to-face consultation.
Who should not use this particular thrush treatment service?You should not request this treatment service if you are are taking terfenadine (an antihistamine for allergies) or are taking cisapride (used for stomach upsets).
This service is not suitable if you are pregnant, breast feeding or if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.
Alternate treatment optionsThere are common and reliable methods of stopping thrush by over the counter medicines, in particular Canesten treatments.
Looking after your thrush treatment:This treatment is for YOU only. Do not give it to others. It may not suit them. Do not take this medicine after the expiry date stamped on the pack. Keep all medicines out of the reach and sight of children.
