Red face Drug resistant thrush! Please help

I have had trush for at least 6 months, but believe I have had it over a year, maybe 2. I have tried all the common meds (3-4 of them) with no progress, and am in the whole around $1,000! The diflucan worked when I was put on the load dose, but slowly came back for the rest of the treatment! I have dental work that needs done, namely a crown and several filling. the dentist said this would not give me thrush most likely, and wanted to send me to a oral surgeon, because he thinks i have dry mouth. Im at a total loss here, and now i think my lymph node are swollen, YES I HAVE BEEN TESTED FOR HIV numerous times! any ideas people?! next step is ketoconazole

Caprylic Acid that come from coconut oil is an anti candida agent --- and coconut oil is also.

I have used Garden of Life because of its taste---

I think it is worth a try.

Re: Drug resistant thrush! Please help

Have you been tested for diabeties? Specific immune deficiencie (other than HIV/AIDS) - there must be a reason this is happening,

Maybe you need Diflucan or one of the other azole antifungals at a higher dose than you have taken in the past, these are generaly considered the gold standard for treating systemic candidasis.

Taking Probiotics can be helpful if the dose is high enough - taking them with a dose of Inulin (Metamucil Fibre Sure is one common brandname) can provide the good bacteria with food to grow, so they proliferate in the gut.

A daily multivitamin, zinc, selenium, vitamons c and e can all boost the immune system..... Twinlab Daily two is a very high potency multivitamon that might be worth a try.

I have not had any lab testing for sugar, but did take my resting blood sugar on my own with a bloods sugar test, its was like 115 which is normal. I feel completely normal other than this...Just confusing to me and concerning
