Contagious?

Doc please, Is thrush contagious though oral contact or otherwise? Could you post a picture of typical oral thrush of the tongue?

Dear suffering thrush,
It can be contagious on contact. Thrush will give you a sore, tender red mouth with white spots that look like cottage cheese and bleeds if you scratch it off.
