In brief: Thrush

Thrush is a yeast infection in the mouth.
Candida is the name of the yeast. Cystitis is a bladder infection, which could be a viral infection, bacterial infection or a yeast infection. Yeast infection just means that you have an infection from yeast and it could be just about anywhere. Vaginal yeast infections and oral (mouth) yeast infections do tend to be the most common, but skin occurs too.
