    You might call your Drug Store and ask the Pharmacist his opinion .There may be an over the counter med you can use.
    Hope this helps

    Some say that apple cider vinager in a 50:50 mix with water, gargled 3/day will kill it. I don't know this first hand. Also yogurt will replenish the "good" bacteria in your digestive tract including your mouth. This is also good for vaginal yeast infections. Put plain yogurt directly onto your bottom. Sounds gross, but it works.

    It can be caused by using inhalers. Do you use any of those? If so you're supposed to rinse your mouth after you use it.

    I also heard tea tree oil works.

    OK this sounds really gross, but here it goes

    You know the mono stat vaginal suppositories ( looks like eggs)
    Use them to rinse his mouth out but Do not swallow. I was told this works.

    You go to the doctor and you use Nystatin oral liquid Rx or Mycelex Troches for 2 weeks and that gets rid of it. I have never heard it spreading through a family though.

    I get them a lot due to diabetes. Have had good luck since I have been on a probiotic everday.

    Absolutely do not use tea tree oil in your mouth. It is only for external use. I agree with the last post, a good probiotic and some type of oral solution provided by an MD. Good luck!

    Charleen:

    I do not want to go against popular opinion, but the only thing that helped me was the Rx Nystatin. Swish and swallow.

    I went through three bottles until it was resolved. I swear by the stuff.

    Hang in there. I know it is a horrible situation.
