Yeast: Most likely you have a yeast infection in your mouth. If you have any conditions or medications that decrease your immune systems ability to function correctly, your bodies ability to control yeast organisms may be compromised, and result in overgrowth of yeast (candidiasis) in the mouth or other mucous membranes such as the vagina.
