Thrush is caused by a yeast infection and is not usually sexually transmitted. Symptoms of thrush include:
- Intense itching around your penis or vagina
- A thick, white discharge
- The appearance of tiny white spots around the genitals
Thrush is easily treated using pessaries (tablets that are inserted into the vagina), cream or tablets. Creams are usually used to treat men who have thrush.
