On clotrimazole for 9 days and still have sore tongue. How long does this take to cure thrush?

In brief: Oral thrush

Sometimes it takes a few weeks to cure this problem. If you have good liver function , your doctor can call in diflucan (fluconazole).
This comes in a tablet and is a little stronger and seems to work better. Good luck and feel better!

In brief: Depends

On cause? Immunosupression? Antibiotics? Diabetes? In general, 10 days of treatment, control of other factors or exposures( partner with candida- thrush) so you are not recycling!
