    You might want to change your title line to read something about candida. There are lots of folks here who can help, but when they see a generic looking help message they might not read it.

    You can also do a search on it. This has been discussed a lot. I can't help because I just wasn't paying attention!

    An environmental doc, if in Canada, or a naturopath, chiro, herbalist, holistic nutritionist, someone liek that.

    Plain yogurt can cure your thrush lickety split. I see the thrush letting go w/in half a day. It's so simple it gets overlooked. You want a yogurt that has just milk and bacterial cultures, skip the lowfat, they have fillers that dilute the efficacy.

    Also, have you changed your toothebrush when you saw signs of it clearing w/ the drug your doc gave you? I saw a ladies testimony that she had thrush for years and it was a dentist that finally suggested the toothebrush change, and it was as simple as that after years of suffereing.

    I don't like rx antifungals at all. That could be why it never goes away, they carry the risk of developing resistant strains. It happened to me w/ nystatin.

    It is very hard to find a doctor that believes we can have candida problems. They are trained that candida is only for the severely immuno suppressed, liek w/ AIDS and cancer. Its all part and parcel of their predjudice toward the severity of this disease that they don't realize that we have severe immune comprimization and candida is a huge issue for us too.
