Recurring Thrush, no reason why

Posted by @rhodan97, Apr 26, 2017

I’ve gotten thrush for the third time. First time was March 2015, I was attributing that with using Thieves essential oils in my mouth on what I thought was a canker sore. December 2016 got it again, figured it was from the homemade chapstick I received from a friend and used, it had essential oils in it. Got it again April 9th, but have not been near essential oils. Nystatin mouth rinse I’ve used and a pill, but I don’t have my paperwork here to say what they were. Completed my meds each time in full. Did blood work this time, all are normal. No HIV. Dentist said my mouth is very healthy, gums and such. All are puzzled. Any thoughts on this? Thanks! Rhoda

I am experiencing same. Blood work normal and etc. Doc thought it might be my inhaler, stopped it went on Singulair and got other symptoms. Mouth and tongue stay dry and sore. Dentist says it’s not saliva glands. Stopped Singulair on Monday.

You are not alone in this.. I had similar thrush 2016

@1968, Have you seen your primary care about your diagnosis? Have you noticed it being any worse with diet or stress?
@rhodan97, have your symptoms arose at a certain time of year?

I looked up my pills, valACYclovir 1000mg, 21 tablets,3x daily. Nystatin was 2ml, 4xdaily, 100ml.
The blood work covered: CBC and differential; HIV; HSV 1; HSV 2; TSH. All came back normal.

@jamienolson, March 2015 was my first thrush, was the worst case my doctor had ever seen. He called his partner in to see it. Was horrible. Took over a week before I could eat anything but yogurt and soup. December 2016, had it again, and again April 9, 2017, it was very mild the last time. I caught it sooner. Stress is certainly a factor on all, but the first two I had used essential oils. This third time that wasn’t a part of it. Calling my doctor tomorrow as it hasn’t gone completely away this time. In the morning I have the white tongue. I rinse with salt water and do a coconut oil rinse in the morning and it fades from the front of my tongue by evening, but there’s still some at the back. No painful bumps, just a tingling on the back of my tongue.

They asked me at the dentist about an inhaler, but I don’t use one. I’ve got a mouth piece as I grind my teeth in my sleep, Been soaking that in hydrogen peroxide during day to help keep it cleaner. Toothbrush, I’m rinsing with hydrogen peroxide also after every use.

I saw an ENT. First he put me on Nystatin for a week. Then put me on some medication that the pharmacy had to make up it was called something like Magical something. Anyway that didn’t work either. He did do a couple of tongue cultures which came back negetive. I have been following your mail and decided to try diluted peroxide. Swishing around in my mouth before bedtime. It has worked to some extent. I also have mental health issues and this mouth thing is not helping me as I get very stressed.
Does anyone out there have any answers Patti

Yes, I’ve seen primary care and internal specialist also my dentist. It goes away, but returns. Saw primary Dr yesterday now on Magic mouth rinse. I have found coconut oil to be soothing.

Liked by brit

The E NT also gave me the Magic stuff but it didn’t work either. Have you tried vinegar and water swish in mouth for about 30 seconds it helps some
