Thrush=fungus: Thrush is relatively common in infants/children, but not so in health adults unless something happened..Such as recent use of antibiotics (u did), infections, steroid uses (such as those for asthma/copd/allergies), or immunosupressed states such as hiv, cancers etc...So, check with your doc. It can be easily treated quickly in few days , but this requires a prescription from your doc... Good luck.

Anti-yeast meds: It may not clear without proper treatment. You need to see a doctor to be placed on proper anti-yeast meds such as Diflucan (fluconazole). After starting proper meds it may take a month or longer to clear. Resistant cases in diabetics or immunecompromised may take much longer and keep recurring.
