How do u know if u have thrush?

Feb 11, 2016 10:05 PM

I've been having chest pain for a while.biut two weeks rib pain also. And now I've got a sore throat and tender spot in mouth. It's not a rash but it definitely hurts.

If the inside of your mouth and tounge are white or have white spots you probably have thrush which basically is a yeast infection. This can happen in any moist area of the body. I have had it even in my esphougus.

Fibrogirl, that doesn't sound like thrush. Mississippi described it really well.

Yes..I looked for the white bumps and I saw some slight redness.. But I drank some lemon water and washes my mouth out. And then I did some relaxation. I have been under some extra extra stress this last week. It did go away.. But I would still like to know what it was.. But I'm going to a Dr appointment next week.

Do lots of warm salt water rinses. It may not kill it but it will definitely help. Also after everything clears up do not forget to either replace your toothbrush or sanitize the one you are using with boiling water.

My thrush is always scaly white patches all over, especially the back of the throat and on the uvula. Salt water gargles help. Mycelex tabs too, but recently I've needed antibiotics twice. 🙂💕🙏🌼

I can't use antibiotics as they cause me to get thrush. The only way I can get rid of it is to take the all in one thrush tablet.

Probiotics should help with thrush as contain lots of acidophilus. Acidophilus conquers Candida cells. Some people eat yogurt to prevent thrush. But you would need to eat hundreds every day to affectively prevent thrush and other yeast infections. But a good probiotic is like taking that every day. Acidophilus gets the gut back on balance and sort of resets it. It is the good bacteria the stomach needs to function well.

My asthma meds are my cause. Since I must use them I must deal with thrush. 🙂💕🙏🌼
