Fungal infection: Clotrimazole is used to treat yeast infections of the vagina, mouth, and skin such as athlete's foot, jock itch, and body ringworm. It can also be used to prevent oral thrush in certain patients. It is entirely possible that the particular fungus you are treating is resistant.

Oral yeast?: You can use it as often as you like; no harm will come. But why use a not very effective and unpleasant treatment when other effective treatments are available? Also confirm the diagnosis. Oral yeast infection (thrush) is different from coated tongue, for example. If you are ohterwise healthy, oral yeast infections are unlikely. Discuss with your PCP.

Given lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) for penile fungal infection. Used 9 days, foreskin thinning, blueness on head. Month later, skin still thinned & burning. Concerned!

Given lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) for penile fungal infection. Used 9 days, foreskin thinning, blueness on head. Month later, skin still thinned & burning. Concerned!

Use steroid free: Lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) is a combination of both an anti-fungal and a topical steroid. The steroid is causing the thinning of the skin. And 9 days is not long enough to treat fungal skin infection. You need a topical cream like lotrimin that is just the anti-fungal cream and not containing any steroid, and then use it routinely for weeks to clear up the infection. Oral meds also available but more side effects.

On clotrimazole for 3 weeks. Some improvement in tongue. Blood tests fine. Nonsmoker. Would different drug be better for oral thrush.

On clotrimazole for 3 weeks. Some improvement in tongue. Blood tests fine. Nonsmoker. Would different drug be better for oral thrush.

Nystatin / Diflucan (fluconazole): You could use Diflucan (fluconazole) & Nysatin. The question also is, why do you have thrush? Diabetes, antibiotic use, inhaled steroids, and immune system problems are some of the causes.

On clotrimazole for 9 days and still have sore tongue. How long does this take to cure thrush?

Oral thrush: Sometimes it takes a few weeks to cure this problem. If you have good liver function, your doctor can call in diflucan (fluconazole). This comes in a tablet and is a little stronger and seems to work better. Good luck and feel better!

Can take longer: A fungal infection using topicals can take up to 4 weeks. You could have a superimposed bacterial infection. If fungal oral Diflucan (fluconazole) at 200mg every other day for 5 doses mat hasten recovery but you may need abx and evaluation. A good gp should be able to help.

Just prior to the more painful mouth palate injections in preparation for oral surgery can a patient request nitrous oxide as an helpful aid, or not?

Just prior to the more painful mouth palate injections in preparation for oral surgery can a patient request nitrous oxide as an helpful aid, or not?

Sure, or a general.: Palatal, roof of the mouth injections, for oral surgery procedures such as dental implants etc. Can be uncomfortable. Sometimes a topical anesthetic and a little distracting pressure with a dental instrument will suffice. Otherwise, nitrous oxide. (inexpensive) oral sedation more (expensive) twilight sleep or general anesthesia (most expensive) does the job. What is it worth to you?
