I had thrush for 6 months due to taking antibiotics. It was really getting me down, I had drops and creams, but nothing worked. I read natural yogurt works and after 3 days of using it my thrush is almost clear. It cost me 50p, I can't believe it!

I have had the thrush forever. I have tried all most everything. Nothing works for me. I think most doctors think you are crazy. I have the book 'Yeast Connection'. It describes yeast infection very well. I have yet to get help with it.

I experienced thrush just a few days ago. I was taking antibiotics and inhaler for sinus congestion. I found out I that have the Flu. My mouth started burning like someone was putting fire to the roof of my mouth. It is so sore. I cannot eat or chew food. The doctor put me on nystatin for 5 days. I had top swish and spit 1 teaspoon four times a day. It is a little better, but my gums are still sore. I have to numb my mouth to eat food. Drinking ice cold drinks soothes the burning.

I nursed my husband for about 3 years as he had a terminal illness. The stress of him dying caused me to get Candida, which I did not know what it was at the time. I felt ill and my general practitioner treated my thrush with amoxicillin antibiotics. I have learned this can cause Candida also. After having Nystatin, I have found that probiotic yogurt (plain with no flavors) swished around the mouth and left in for a while without swallowing is a great help and my throat is much easier now. Also, pineapple chunks, no syrup, in natural juice, rubbed and swished around the mouth, helps to move the Candida.

I'm an 18-year-old girl with severe systemic lupus. Because of the aggressive course of treatment that has compromised my immune system, I developed a persistent case of thrush. I was put on Nystatin Oral Suspension to hold in my mouth and swallow and that took care of the thrush for about a week, but then it came back. Now it's worse than ever. My entire tongue is covered in white bumps, and my mouth is so sensitive I can no longer eat or drink much of anything. It constantly feels as if I just got finished brushing my teeth with sandpaper and decided to floss with a serrated knife. My doctors are concerned that the thrush may spread to other parts of my body. If you have a bad case of thrush that won't go away, go see your doctor because it could be very dangerous if the infection gets into the rest of your body.

The doctor diagnosed me with thrush in the mouth. It's been 16 days now and the insides of my cheeks are burning especially when I eat any salt, hot foods, or any hot drinks. Sometimes I get blisters inside my mouth when I eat or drink hot things.

I get white froth on my tongue, back of the tongue appears raised and irritated. At times I have a throbbing feeling, lips burn, and mouth feels warm/hot. I also have overproduction of saliva because of thrush.
