Some find that brushing the teeth after each use of a steroid inhaler does a good job of preventing oral thrush and voice changes.

If you have not used a spacer yet, you should get one to use with the inhaler. I have not heard about Aloe juice but in addition to rinsing your mouth with plain water after each use with spacer, you can rinse your mouth with water and baking soda (one table spoon in 1 liter of water), 2-3 times a day, the idea here is that the fungus hates salty environments.
