It is antiseptic rather than anti fungal. Wait until tomorrow and get something appropriate such as Canestan from the pharmacy.

Jennifer is absolutely right. Don't bother - Savlon will not affect the thrush at all and it might make you really really sore! You need an anti-fungal, and Canesten is the one. I always find it best to use the pessary - it works brilliantly.

No you cannot. Thrush is fungal, and Savlon is an antiseptic. You need a cream like Canesten. You can get it over the counter at any chemists.

A good treatment for thrush is plain yogurt. It may sound silly but it works.
