In brief: Depends

If you do not have predisposing factors such as being diabetic, on antibiotics, on steroids, or other, this may suggest immune deficiency.
Thrush is common when such factors are present, but this disease usually primarily occurs in infants, not adults. If you have any underlying risk factors, get evaluated.

If you are immunocompromised, e.
