      I tried the yogurt thing and it was way too messy for me but worth trying all the same. It is interesting to note you also mention olive oil. I then purchased a proprietary natural thrush treatment with coconut oil, olive oil and east cape manuka oil and it worked a treat. I think natural ingredients have a big rile to play in future medical advances.
