Discussions that mention clotrimazole

General Health board


Has anyone suggested "thrush" or oral candida? The yellow/white color and white bumps are a dead ringer for it. Adults get it as well as children and Ive read that severe acid reflux or the like can aggaravate it. Usually its treated successfully with fluconazole, clotrimazole, ketoconazole, or nystatin.A decent doc can usually eyeball it and diagnose it, but they can also take a little scrape and do a culture to confirm if its actually oral candida. Has your doc done this yet?

Thanks for your reply...

NO, none of the doctors mentioned anything about this, just said they wondered if it is geographic tongue. And none of them took any kind of sample.

It's weird that I have now had this for over a year. Can something like a yeast infection last that long? I also notice that it gets much worse covering my entire tongue, when I am stressed or tired. Not sure what to do..
