Things to ease discomfort and prevent thrush returning:
Thrush can affect other areas of skin, such as the armpits, groin and between the fingers. This usually causes a red, itchy or painful rash that scales over with white or yellow discharge. The rash may not be so obvious on darker skin. Sometimes thrush causes no symptoms at all.
