    can i just ask, what sort of probiotics...do you mean something like 'inner health plus' or similar?

    Also, it sounds like a good way to prepare for birth...how far in advance of giving birth would be a good time to start on a course of probiotics?

    Hmm, this one interests me too. Actually I wonder if it would help with all types of skin fungal infections? Maybe try making a paste of fresh crushed garlic mixed with a little olive oil and apply topically and see what happens?

    Can someone re post this in about 2 years when I'm ready to have bubs #3 I've had GBS twice now, and it will be hard enough having a bubs over 30 and being treated like a lepper for that, let alone having strep as well.

    Ah the uncertainty of when you will be allowed out of hospital because of it, and peads being too interested in that to notice your bub has displaced hips!!!!

    Just to update: for itchiness on the outside of your vag, try using a clove of garlic cut in half. Ive had instant relief! Sure beats spending a fortune on creams too!
