I want to know what cause my oral thrush. I do not smoke and do not use any antibiotics. Can this be caused by stress. Is there any natural medication or vitamens I can use.

Dear Yvonne
Common causes of oral thrush can be diabetes, immune deficiencies like AIDS or Cancer, dry mouth, thyroid problems, drugs like antibiotics and cortisone, self-infection via vaginal thrush, certain viral infections like the Ebstein Barr virus, chronic lung and upper airway infections and the wearing of dentures.
Try using Daktarin oral gel and take an immune booster like Immunochoice. Let your doctor check your blood sugar and thyroid functions.
