Do all walkin doctors have everything they need to scrape and test a tongue for oral thrush? My walkin doc didn't even look at my tongue and prescription nystat
Why: Oral thrush is diagnosed by visual exam in most cases. I don't recall every running the scrape and stain testing outside of medical school. It just adds time and cost to the encounter and doesn't change the plan of treatment. The germ of thrush is a normal contaminant of the total GI tract and the treatment is innocuous. I am surprised the doc didn't look, consider that bad form. ...Read more

I have on and off mild oral thrush since I was 17. No underlying disease. Doctor says its simply from dry mouth. Does this sound plausible? I smoke
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

I have been getting recurring yeast infections & oral thrush since december. My bloodwork came back fine. My doctor doesn't think this is systematic. I think that it is and I need a long term anti-fungal med to treat it. Can I get feedback?
Controversial: There is no easy answer to that question as there is no hard medical evidence for the "systemic yeast infection." That being said, medicine is an art and I have treated several of my patients with recurrent yeast infections more aggressively with diflucan (fluconazole). I have also done fungal cultures to determine if there is another fungal cause that requires a different anti-fungal medication. ...Read more
I told my doctor about acid getting in my throat. She said I had oral thrush n took a swab on my tongue?! y didn't she just give me antibiotics?!
Two issues?: You may have acid reflux, and that is why you are receiving omeprazole, although it may also be helpful to know if you are helicobacter pylori positive, in which case you do need antibiotics. If you have thrush as an adult, and there is no underlying reason, you need to be assessed for immune deficiency and tested for HIV disease. Don't know your physician's specialty, and might want a referral. ...Read more

Been dealing with thrush for 4 months. Doc suggested internal creams for 2 weeks and oral tablet, clitoris is still red why won't it go away?
Be careful: If you have been dealing with a problem for months with no resolution, make sure you've correctly identified the cause. It's possible that candida isn't the cause of your issue or if it was it may have been treated and now something is going on, like a reaction to the treatments used. You may want to consider a second opinion to be sure that nothing is being missed. Best of luck. ...Read more
I'm a type 1 diabetic, I'm 17, I'm being treated for oral thrush (this is my 4th day of the antibiotics) and I'm having diarrhea w/ fleshy bits. Pain.
Thrush!: If you are asking for an adult, you should be able to see your regular internist initially. If he/she feels it is necessary for you to see a specialist, then a referral could be made. If you are asking for a child, I would bring the child to a pediatrician for an evaluation. Thrush is often found in an immunocompromised person. ...Read more
