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.
