Q.

Mouth thrush

I hope I' ll be able to get help/ advice. I' ve been taking prescribed lozenges for 3 weeks to ged rid of the thrush I have onmy tongue but still nothing is happening. I clean it all the tine, even resorted to brushing my teeth after every meal. What else can I try? This is terrible as I also experience excrutiang pain on tongue.

You need an antibacterial mouthwash (Corsodyl) ask your dentist/pharmacist.

Hi....
Thrush is a fungus!.... you might have candida!..... Try taking PROBIOTICS.... This is what is given to you when you are on antibiotics that kill all the good bacteria in your body... it replaces good bacteria.... Also make sure that you take a very good nutritional supplement
