Thrush (also called monilia or candida) is a vagonal infection. The organism is a yeast which is commonly found in the body without causing any problems. At times a woman may notice symptoms, particularly during pregnancy, or when she is on antibiotics or some other medication. Reoccuring thrus sometimes is an indicator of diabetes or some other ilnesses.

Symptoms include itchiness, burning, soreness, a cheesy white discharge, discomfort during intercourse and pain when urinating.

An antibiotic is a drug that kills or slows the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics are one class of "antimicrobials", a larger group which also includes anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic drugs. They are relatively harmless to the host, and therefore can be used to treat infection. The term originally described only those formulations derived from living organisms, but is now applied also to synthetic antimicrobials, such as the sulfonamides.
