I don't have the thrush either, just a persisting candida, if I do not take the fluconazole
time release. If the thrush persists, you might need to ask your doctor for
some medication. Eliminating sugar, refined flour etc, should help in the process, as fungi feed on this.
I'm really sorry about the almost complete hair loss. It must be really 'painful'. I don't think anyone's feelings are shallow. This is how YOU feel about not having your hair and I respect that.
