Fungus of the mouth

Been to oral surgeon and had biopsy done and tooth removed. No antibiotics, just a fungus medication. First round did not complete the problem. So another round was given. Then it spread to the corners of my mouth , so a ointment was given. This was in October. The surgery was done with this fungus in my mouth. I now have it much worse than before. I feel the fungus infection was stitched up inside my mouth during surgery and now has come back. I went back to the dentist was put on amoxicillian and still have the issue. The surgeon no longer works for the dentist office. I am under a severe amount of stress and discomfort. I need some help.

It is best to have a second opinion at another maxillofacial surgeon. Be sure to take the results of your biopsy with you. The reason for the biopsy and initial problem needs to be known at the time of consultation.
