my GP has not been able to sort out my candida on my tongue, who do you suggest i go and see, is there perhaps a certain doc that specialises in Candida?

Hallo mike
You may have an underlying immunity problem,so ask your doctor to check your full blood count. I also think that one should probably take a swab of the mouth and send it to the lab, maybe the problem is not Candida. You can see any physician or just get a second opinion at another GP? Persistant candida infections can be caused by HIV - have you been tested?

Have you tried rinsing you rmouth with tea tree oil? This is really good for fungus - you put about 1 - 2 drops into a half glass of water &  rinse. Spit it out - don''t swallow. Tastes awful but works for some people.
