Prednisone and Oral thrush?

My Dr. prescribed me a pill (Diflucan) - recently when he prescribed me a course of prednisone. He said that is for 'oral thrush' which you can get from Prednisone.

Can anyone tell me how common this is? I have heard of oral trhush from inhalers (as I use Flovent daily- but rinse well) - but with an oral steroid?

Any info?

Thanks

Re: Prednisone and Oral thrush?

That definitely sounds a little strange. I know that inhalers can contribute to oral thrush (which is why they tell you to rinse your mouth after using them) but I've never heard of oral prednisone contributing to thrush.
