Candida albicans (Oral Thrush) a few questions - please respond.
First off the bat, I want to apologize if a similar question has been asked already I have flicked through a few pages and not been able to find any.
I have had a recurrent oral thrush - which does not seem to be responding to my attempts at treatment - Nystatin suspension, good oral hygiene etc.
but I understand that this is can be considered a possible defining symptom of HIV/AIDS?? ( I also realize symptoms do not mean squat in terms of diagnosis)
As I surf through the net I become more alarmed - I may have also had OHL 6 months ago.
I went to the AIDS foundation in NZ which provides a rapid point of care antibody test from unigold - this came back negative.
Some infomation on this test would be awesome, as it seems a bit too good to be true - 3 drops of blood 15-20 minutes and WHAM! results?
I will consult my GP on wensday - but would love some ideas/pointers as the anxiety is awe full
