Are you suffering from a medical condition which you find embarrassing to talk about? Medical Specialists offers treatments to help alleviate medical conditions which are difficult to talk about or too embarrassing for some people. We offer discreet online consultations/products for bad breath, acne, thrush, piles, genital herpes, cystitis, urinary tract infections and STD's.


Thrush is a fungal infection caused by Candida albicans. The most common symptoms in women are itching, soreness and redness around the vagina, vulva and anus, unusual vaginal discharge which may be thin, thick and look like cottage cheese or pain on passing urine or during sex.

Thrush infections are relatively common in men as well. The most common symptoms in men are irritation, burning or itching under the foreskin or at the tip of the penis, redness or red patches on the penis or under the foreskin, a thick or thin discharge, like cottage cheese, under the foreskin or discomfort when passing urine.

All these symptons can be embarrassing while some people don't have any signs or symptoms, and may not be aware they have thrush. Sometimes thrush symptoms will be noticed during a vaginal examination for a cervical screening test.

Cystitis and Urinary Tract Infections

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder and although it's usually caused by an infection in the bladder, it can also be caused by irritation or from friction during sex.

The most common symptoms are an urgent need to urinate often and pain or stinging when you urinate. If left untreated, bladder infections can cause kidney infection too.

Cystitis is more common in women because women have a short urethra. The urethra's opening is also located very close to the anus, which makes it easy for bacteria from the anus to reach the bladder and cause an infection.

The symptoms can be very embarrassing and between 20 to 40 per cent of women get cystitis and almost all women will have cystitis at least once throughout their lifetime.
