In brief: Oral thrush

Should be fairly rapid, assuming that your immune status is normal.
Adults do not usually get thrush without some underlying problem. And the response to antifungals may be inadequate in the presence of alterations in immune function. Strongly suggest you be evaluated and undergo testing for HIV disease.
