Unfortunately, these just treat the symptoms not the disease. Lichen planus is an auto-immune disorder and currently most medical professionals do not have effective tools to treat this problem short of corticosteroids. ...Read more

I took bacterial vaginosis treatment by mouth two weeks ago, but I got oral thrush from it, and I think my BV has come back after having sex?!

BV isn't usually an STD in the usual sex, except in lesbian partners. Still, even with male partners, it's a good idea to either avoid sex or use condoms consistently (even with regular partners) for several weeks. For expert advice see an NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more
What kind of home treatments will cure oral thrush and how long will it take for it to be actually cured?
None: Thrush is treated with topical antifungals to the mouth. These are nystatin(mycostatin) liquid suspension-swish and swallow 4 times a day or Clotrimazole troches-dissolve one in mouth 4 times a day until the lesions are gone.

Here are some...: Using broad-spectrum antibiotics always possibly comes with fungal infection somewhere; that is nothing uncommon. As to angular cheilitis, one has to consider sun overexposure, poor nutrition, allergies, medications, dehydration, diet, and certain systemic diseases. To help handle these, to articles in http://formefirst.com/onUTI.html & http://formefirst.com/onLifeBasics.html. More? Contact me. ...Read more
I have been on antibiotics for wisdom teeth surgery removal. I have a mild case of oral thrush and I am going to start swab treatments today. In a week, would it be okay for me to kiss my boyfriend? Would he be at risk of getting oral thrush from me?
It is ok in a week: Thrush generally occurs when the normal bacterial flora in your mouth is changed due to taking antibiotics or when your immune system isn't working correctly. If your boyfriend has a normal immune system and you use the swabs for a week, he should be fine. Also, it is probably not a good idea to french kiss if your surgery is recent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
