Re: Glossitis And Thrush

I'm sorry your having so many problems. According to *****.com, the causes of glossitis include:

Bacterial or viral infections (including oral herpes simplex)
Mechanical irritation or injury from burns, rough edges of teeth or dental appliances, or other trauma
Exposure to irritants such as tobacco, alcohol, hot foods, or spices
Allergic reaction to toothpaste, mouthwash, breath fresheners, dyes in candy, plastic in dentures or retainers
Disorders such as iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia and other B vitamin deficiencies, oral lichen planus, erythema multiform, aphthous ulcers, pemphigus vulgaris, syphilis, and others
Occasionally, glossitis can be inherited.

As for the thrush, I had it for 2 1/2 weeks after septoplasty, turbinate reduction, adenoidectomy and tonsilectomy and my ENT put me on Clotrimazole 10 mg Troche. They worked very well. You let them dissolve in your mouth slowly four times a day. You might ask your doctor for another thrush medication.

Re: Glossitis And Thrush

I forgot to ask if you have changed any of your dental hygene products?

You can either go back to your ENT or just call your pharmacy and ask them if there is any drug interaction with any of your medication. I sure hope you feel well soon.

Re: Glossitis And Thrush

Hi angeleyes,

The raised and inflammed taste buds and semi-permanent white tongue coating are associated with LPR or Larnygo Pharyngeal Reflux. The acid goes all the way into the mouth and after sometime can destroy your oral bacterial balance. This allows candida to take hold especially in denture wearers causing sore throat etc. The LPR is also responsible for the globus or something stuck in the throat sensation, burning mouth, excess mucous, post nasal drip, sinusitis and bitter taste. If your tastebuds have raised whiteheads on them this can either be thrush from the candida or plaque forming from the post nasal drip secretions at the back of the throat.

Hope helps

THANK YOU SO MUCH GINGER YOU HAVE REALLY HELPED ME ALOT YOU ALSO MADE ME FEEL GOOD WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THE TASTE BUDS. NOBODY ELSE TALKS ABOUT THAT ON HERE AS A SYMPTON. BUT THE TASTE BUDS DID NOT HAVE THE WHITE ON THEM. MY DOCTOR SEEN MY MOUTH TWICE BUT NO ONE COULD TELL ME WHY THE TASTE BUDS WERE SO INFLAMED. SO I TRIED TO GO BACK AND EAT SPICY FOODS AND THEY WERE FEELING BETTER AT THAT TIME AND IT JUST FLARED THEM ALL OVER AGAIN. YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT HELP. THANKS AND HAPPY EASTER! CHERYL
