Can thrush in the mouth cause tiny blood blisters if not what causes them?

Unusual: It is my policy never to say never, but this would be unusual. If you are an adult with thrush, something may be seriously wrong. The most frequent thing that infectious diseases doctors think of is HIV disease, but there can be other causes. Strongly advise you to see a doctor and be thoroughly evaluated, including tests of your immune function. ...Read more

A doctor should be able to confirm that with a look in the back of the throat. If your allergies are bad, there are various treatments that may help, such as antihistamines or even immunotherapy. Try an allergist if needed ...Read more

Can a baby with thrush cause me problems while breastfeeding?

Possibly: Often time the baby & mom will 'ping pong' the infection back &forth especially if the mom has any cracks on the nipples. Often times the knowledgable physician will treat both mom & babe.

Menapause passed 3years used canesten 4 thrush 24hrs ago have now started bleeding slightly what would be the cause?

See details: The canesten should not have caused any bleeding. Sometimes women traumatized the inflamed thin vaginal tissue with applicators and cause bleeding. Unfortunately you cannot assume that. You should have an immediate exam to locate the source. Transvaginal ultrasound is also indicated. Additional testing might be warranted depending on the findings. ...Read more

Got oral thrush, given nystan, I am not taking it, it can cause steven-johnson syndrome. Why anyone would use this I do not know?

Very rare: Nystatin is considered a safe drug. There has only been one reported case in the medical literature of stevens-johnson syndrome from nystatin. That was not a controlled study and has not been verified in any other way. Many other common drugs *can* cause s-j syndrome, but it is still very rare. ...Read more

I have been prescribed an antibiotic that always causes me thrush. Can I take thrush medication as a precaution or do I have to wait for symptoms?

Antibiotics ; thrush: You know that when you take this antibiotic you always get thrush. Mention this to your doctor next time to see if a different antibiotic would be acceptable.

Oral troches of Clotrimazole or a Nystatin gargle are options, and are not unreasonable to start immediately as a preventative. ...Read more

Just diagnosed with oral thrush. Why would I get thrush at 32 yrs old when I have not been on antibiotics? No recent medications not diabetic. Causes?

Several things.: Oral thrush and other candida infections can occur when your immune system is weakened by disease or drugs such as prednisone, or when antibiotics disturb the natural balance of microorganisms in your body.

Normally your immune system works to repel harmful invading organisms, such as viruses, bacteria and fungi, while maintaining a balance between 'good' and 'bad' microbes that normally inhabit. ...Read more
