Been on clotrimazole for oral thrush for 5 days, not clearing up, seems to be getting worse. Have dr. Appt tomorrow morning but shouldn't it be better?

In brief: Thrush

Possibly; may not be thrush; might need a swab or culture of the white exudate within the mouth to confirm diagnosis.

I agree , if the treatment is not working , the diagnosis may be incorrect. But keep in mind, oral thrush tx is 10 days
