Diagnosis: Your diagnosis needs to be reconsidered both for the cause of your mouth lesions and possibly HIV being involved. Cultures will be needed (oral) followed by a biopsy in case cultures remain negative. Causes, other than HIV, will have also to be considered in case immunosuppression is believed to contribute to your thrush.
