Follow up w/ his Dr.: You should follow up with his doctor. Depending on what's already been tested, you may need to have blood tests to see what could be the potential cause of this.

Probably not: More than likely it isn't a concern, but see your dentist to make sure. I would be more concerned as to the reason you have thrush in the first place. It could be something as minor as having been on an antibiotic recently or perhaps you just need to brush your tongue, but it could also be a sign of some greater underlying immune issue. Don't lose sleep over it, but do get it looked at. ...Read more

What to do if I have thrush from my breathing medicine. Can my dentures get infected with thrush. If so will bleach water kill the thrush by soaking them?
A better solution:
Soak dentures in 50% vinegar/50% water for 30 min. To inhibit fungus growth. A little better, but more expensive alterative is Aloe Vera gel. Antifungal medications (e.g. nystatin, amphotericin or miconazole) can effectively treat oral thrush, and the condition usually benign and does not cause complications for healthy people. Hope it helps.
