Thanks for the thought Pipsi, but I already know all about anti-b's bug killing properties (and why you have to take the WHOLE DAMN DOSE otherwise the bacteria evolve to be immune to them and then you get superbugs, and that anti-b's don't do a damn thing for cold/flu because they don't kill viruses etc etc).
I have been taking the pro-biotic tablets (I think they're inner health, from memory) in a double dose to try and give the good guys a hand up, but to no avail. These pro-biotic pills are basically the 'good bugs' that you find in yakult but in a capsule and more of them. I have now upped my dose of them to 3 per day with meals as opposed to 1 (since the anti-b's are 4 per day I figure this should work out about right) and fingers crossed I may not have to get meds for the thrush. I try to avoid medication where I can, in my experience if you start taking one thing you start having to take others to fix the problems #1 causes.

Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
