    Just wanted to know if anyone else has had similar symptoms like this before.

    Itchy vulva
    sore/redness
    slight swelling
    irritating pain.

    Inb4: go to a Dr - I'd love to, but none are open on a weekend in my area (which is when my appointment would be) and I'm on my period (they wouldnt be able to look internally)

    Anyone had any experience of thrush, or canesten products?

    could be thrush, ive had it quite a few times and it sucks!

    Do you have a thick white discharge? That's another symptom.

    Ive used canesten stuff whenever ive had thrush, I prefer the pessary as opposed to the oral treatment. Tho it might be kinda akward using something internally if its your period....

    You can buy them over the counter in the chemist if your not able to get to the drs

    if you get to the docs when you can - if it is thrush the itching will probs just get worse they'll probably be able to diagnose you without even taking a look down there, if it is thrush they'll probs give you a canesten pill (dont think you can get these over the counter ... not sure ) and some cream to go with it
