• Wash daily.
• After using the toilet, wipe from the front to the back to prevent the thrush infection from spreading from the bowel.
• Change your sanitary protection regularly.
• Avoid wearing tights, nylon knickers, and close fitting jeans.
• Try to avoid washing with perfume soaps or using vaginal deodorants.
• Do not scrub the area hard with sponges or flannels and avoid hot baths with strong perfumed oils.
