I had an epsom salt bath with coconut & tea tree oil earlier and thought that'd be a good way to clear it but I have a very narrow bath tub and was too conscious of getting any water in my vagina, so that failed miserably (it did make my skin feel wonderful though).
I'm thinking the best way would be to use the shower head but as I am so sensitive I'm really worried it'll hurt. She sent a swab off to the lab to test for thrush but said it may be inconclusive as she couldn't get too far in without a speculum, and didn't want to attempt to use one as I was too swollen and sore.
I'm very conscious of only using harmless products of natural origin on my vulva area so if there's anything I can use to help dissolve the yeast or to soften it for easier removal, any naturally sourced suggestions would be helpful.
Should I just accept that it may not be completely painless to remove and keep going? Or should there be a more comfortable way to remove it?
Thanks in advance
