What can be done for a baby that won't eat and has thrush?

Treat the thrush: Thrush can cause a stinging and burning in the mouth, so before the baby is going to eat, you need to treat the underlying fungal infection. See the baby's pediatrician for an anti-fungal medication to apply in the mouth.

Please suggest what foods can I eliminate from my diet to reduce thrush?

See bellow: Thrush is fungus (candida) related, not food-related. You need to take a medicine to get rid of it (local or systemic). But firstly you need an evaluation at your pcp office to find out if you don't have any underlying condition which may facilitate the thrush to come back.

Hi, does oral thrush always mean aids? I have dentures I only take out when I eat and rarely clean. Could that be it too?

Hi, does oral thrush always mean aids? I have dentures I only take out when I eat and rarely clean. Could that be it too?

No: Oral thrush can be caused by HIV or any other disorder that affects our immune system, certainly if you are not properly cleaning your dentures, this could cause oral thrush. You should see a dentist to treat this. Most often, antifungal drugs will be used as well as instructions on how to dissinfect your dentures.

I keep getting oral thrush over & over again. I don't have diabetes but everytme I eat sugar my feet itch like crazy.?

I keep getting oral thrush over & over again. I don't have diabetes but everytme I eat sugar my feet itch like crazy.?

Recurrent: Oral candidaisis may not be a sign of diabetics. I will be concerned about HIV or other causes of impaired T cellular function and oral hygiene. Feeling itching like crazy on the feet seems like something else going on. High index carbohydrates can also elevate your blood sugar and diabetic neuropathy is not common in the pre-diabetic state or hyperinsulinism

Thrush almost non stop. Antibiotics for months. Done a while. Swabs show nothing. Blood tests clear. Have cut sugary food and had all meds from doc.?

Thrush almost non stop. Antibiotics for months. Done a while. Swabs show nothing. Blood tests clear. Have cut sugary food and had all meds from doc.?

More work up needed: Not sure what your work up has been. Not sure if diagnosis is correct. Antibiotics are not the treatment for thrush. Antifungals are the proper treatment. If proper diagnosis, evaluation of the function of your immune system is in order, including HIV testing. Scraping of the lesion in mouth put onto microscope and showing what we call hyphae makes the diagnosis. Easy to do in office.

Yes: If it's in your esophagus as well. The question is why this might be. Do you know your HIV status? Are you diabetic? Please think about getting endoscoped.
