Probably not thrush: Thrush is often misdiagnosed - and sometimes a 'coated tongue' is mistaken for that. True thrush looks a bit like cottage cheese -a doctor can help you decide if that's really what it is. I believe it's most likely you have a coated tongue-if you send a pic that would help. Try rinsing vigorously with warm water, or even brushing your tongue. There are other reasons for thrush to appear -i.e. meds ...Read more

I am taking sulfasalizine for mixed connective tissue disease. I have developed thrush. Would this med. Be the cause?

I am taking sulfasalizine for mixed connective tissue disease. I have developed thrush. Would this med. Be the cause?

Almost certainly: Your thrush is likely the tip of the iceberg-antibioitics like sulfsalizine kill our friendly flora but don't kill yeast, leading to overgrowth throughout the GI tract (known as intestinal candidiasis). This is treated with a low starch diet, probiotics & antifungal drugs or herbs. See http://www. Huffingtonpost. Com/dr-mark-hyman/yeast-infection-symptoms_b_657354.Html & http://bit.

Saliva is v. helpful: It's quite possible that indeed your dry mouth is contributing to your thrush. The smoking habit doesn't help either. I would definitely try to quit. You can take steps to increase mouth moisture-such as preventing dehydration. Saliva contains antimicrobial compounds that prevent conditions like thrush from taking hold. See if u can keep water around you to sip throughout the day-see if that helps ...Read more

Candida albicans: Thrush is a yeast infection in the oral cavity and is uncommon in adults, but can be predisposed to by use of antibiotics or steroids, diabetes, etc. In this day and age one must think about immune deficiency, particularly due to HIV disease.
