I totally understand how you feel! I was reading through other forums and got some advices from ladies who have similar symptoms.
I have tried to take supplements, coconut oil, lidocaine/lignocaine ointment, and avoided things that could aggravate such as washing with soap etc. For a moment my pain got so much better that I didn't feel much pain and I was so happy. But within 2 days of that relief I started having constipation. I had to stop all the supplements because I was scared that my system is overloaded and that might have contributed to my constipation. Now I can feel that the pain is coming back, which is depressing but I still don't dare to start the supplements cause my constipation problem hasn't resolved yet :( Only taking calcium citrate at the moment.
It's annoying how a single thrush (&its treatments) can lead to all these discomfort and suffering :(
What are you doing currently to manage your symptoms? Is your pain provoked/unprovoked & which area is affected?
I have provoked pain mainly on the deep foldings connecting vestibule and labia minora. It's super sore and stings when I touch/rub.
