Discussions that mention clotrimazole

Ear, Nose & Throat board

Thanks very much to you folks who wrote about the post tonsillectomy abnormal and irregular taste syndrome. I was going crazy trying to find info. to see if it was just me or not. I am at two weeks as of today for tonsillectomy and very upset and aggravated about the lack of taste & irregularly horrid taste of foods I use to love. Suffice to say I am not up to eating a whole lot yet- due to pain--but I have to say since Thursday of last week the taste issue has become more of a factor.It is awful and very, very scary. Anyhow, I also must mention I was put on Clotrimazole (Mycelex) lozenges as of last Tuesday for white spots that the Dr. noticed in my mouth and on my incision site. It was a fungal infection he said- due to all the antibiotics.
