Who gets thrush?

Dr. Danny Proffitt
42 years experience in Family Medicine
Anyone can: Thrush is present in young babies to the very oldest adults. This is a yeast infection of the lining of the oral cavity. It can happen for no apparent reason or be brought on by medications/drugs, illness and those with poor immunity. Antibiotics often precipitate this as do certain cancers and medications. Usually treated with oral troches, liquids, or orally swallowed pills and some topicals.
