    Charleen:

    I had the same thing and was told it was due to 'an immune disorder'. I used bottle after bottle of Nystatin and a tea called Pau 'd Arco and eventually it was totally gone.

    I know it is horrible. Hang in there and it will pass, but you really have to be vigilent with it.

    Have you been on prednisone by any chance? I was told that may have caused mine. Still thought it was something else. You should start feeling better after 3 days or so, if you take the oral treatment.
    Good Luck - I know it is terrible!

    alond with antibiotics is a mix for that. you should try avoiding these and buy some probiotics to correct the yeast in your bowels. charlene

    Isn't it highly contagious as well?

    I think that is what I'd heard.

    My Dad had it during his last few days of life. Luckily he wasn't aware of it.

    Good luck to you, hope it goes away fast for you.

    Such miserable things we get along with the DD's, don't we!

    Hi Charlene, Do you use any types of inhalers?? I use advair inhaler for ashtma and I have to rinse my mouth after each use, because it can cause thrush. It even has a yellow sticker on my box that it comes in and says to rinse after each use can cause thrush.

    if it is oral thrush, don't think you said. As for the down below thrush, Men can carry it without even knowing they have it (they can get symptoms but not always) which is why you can keep passing it back and forth if you have unprotected intercourse and they not know they are giving it back to you. Also I suffered with Thrush for many years (the down below kind) and it miraculously went away when I had my baby three years ago! My doctor didn't know why I kept getting it either! Hand in there. Natural yoghurt can be very good either applied locally or even eaten.
