In brief: Varies
Initially, you may not even notice symptoms of oral thrush.
Once it progresses the sigs can include: creamy white lesions on your tongue, inner cheeks and sometimes on the roof of your mouth, gums and tonsils, lesions with a cottage cheese-like appearance, pain, slight bleeding if the lesions are rubbed or scraped, cracking and redness at the corners of your mouth (especially in denture wearers).
