Causes of tongue yeast infections

Common Questions and Answers about Causes of tongue yeast infections


Avatar m tn Your wife probably does not understand the origins of yeast infections in women. They do not come from catching yeasts from their male sex partners. Women are naturally colonized with yeasts, usually in the intestines and often in the genital tract. When a woman gets a "yeast infection", it is usually not because she acquires yeast from her sex partner or anywhere else. The organism that is there all the time.
Avatar m tn He swabbed my throat and found yeast, and I had a white film on my tongue. He put me on 2 weeks of 100 mg flucozanole, stating this would take care of pain in the tip and my throat. He also performed a HIV test which came back negative at 5 weeks. The abdominal problems have pretty much subsided, but I still have a slight burning in the tip and a sore throat, as well as slightly weepy eyes, and general tiredness, ear ache for two weeks on and off.
Avatar f tn Regarding your BF's skin issues, there are certainly instances in which yeast infections have been transmitted from partner to partner in the course of sexual exposure (genital, oral, other), leading to a variety of manifestations. Sometimes these manifestations are not "classical" and they are not encountered all that commonly by general practitioners. I hope this helps. I would treat you and your BF with fluconazole if I were your doctors and see what happens.
Avatar m tn Hi, On the 15th of Januray I have noticed that I have this white tongue, usually I have a nice pink tongue. I noticed this white tongue because one moning when I woke up I had vey dry mouth so I went to check it in the mirror. Later on I started to have 37.
Avatar n tn I think orange tongue is the bodies way of purging infections in our body and fortunately for us, this might be a great indicator of possible infection inside our body.
Avatar m tn Recurring vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush (accumulation at the back of the throat and white coated tongue), migraine headaches, sinus, ear or eye infections, toenail or skin fungus or rashes including jock itch, food allergies, brain fog, depression, just plain feeling whacked out and irritated, low sex drive, fatigue, low thyroid, low adrenals and more. If you are not sure if you have candida yeast overgrowth, take this simple test: It is very accurate, and won't cost you a penny.
Avatar n tn Hi, There could be several causes of these white spots. It would be best to consult your doctor to find out the cause in your case and plan the further management accordingly. Fungal infections are very common, and are often quite bothersome. One such example is a condition known as tinea versicolor, a superficial yeast infection that produces white spots on the skin that are difficult to remove.
Avatar n tn and the contrary, that being symptoms of HIV(thrush and yeast infections) occuring throughtout the life of the virus, because it is common? 2. How soon after exposure do symptoms of HIV, such as thrush (or benign migratory glossitis) appear? 3. How soon after exposure does an HIV related yeast infection occur? Oral Hairy Leukoplakia? 4. After having an extreme and very abnormal dry mouth off an on for some time, I've now developed patches on my tongue.
150807 tn?1194958915 I think we're more prone to infections and as such - I think dry mouth - or drying of everything on this dehydrating tx, causes more infections to happen. So --- I would get all sorts of fungi or creepy stuff on my tongue and it was ALWAYS sore. Mouthwash --- ask your doc for something for mouth problems - and it really helps. The nose.. no... LOL! But heck - who knows - there was a point when EVERYTHING hurt --- felt like I was going insane or was making everything up... LOL!
Avatar m tn Even the symptoms of first episode HSV infections resolve within about three weeks of the onset of lesions. 2. Since this whole thing started less then a day later is its still possible that herpes took 50 days to form a blister? No, it would be unusual for an initial episode of HSV to occur 50 days after exposure. 3. Does being on antibiotics make you more susceptible to yeast infections during sex. Yes, antibiotics do increase risk for yeast infections.
Avatar f tn I have been on 100mg of Topamax since the end of April. I immediately experienced the loss of appetite. I seaked the advice of a naturopath to use it to my advantage because I had about 80 pounds to lose. I see him every Friday and since then, I have lost 43 pounds...:-) It has not been difficult. It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January.
Avatar m tn Skin biopsies reveal lymphocytic and eosinophilic inflammation around the hair follicles The causes of infection are mite Demodex, the yeast Pityrosporum, and bacteria An autoimmune process has also been investigated.
Avatar n tn I have had the same symptoms as many of the others who have posted - various parts of my face, especially lips and tongue, sometimes eyelids or chin, swell up to painful proportions for no apparent reason. I also sometimes get unexplained and very itchy hives on my body. It usually takes roughly 18 hours for it to disappear entirely, sometimes less if I take enough Prednisolone early enough.
Avatar n tn I read the comments and most of it seemed to be foods,or yeast infections. It might even be my toothpaste. But i've been using that tooth paste for about a month now. I'd appreciate some advice,before i call a doctor.
Avatar n tn I've been reading a ton of things on herpes and yeast infections but I think it's a yeast infection due to the medication Im on and it is really painful to wipe and shower can a yeast infection come up that fast???!?
Avatar m tn Increased sensitivity of skin to sunlight, dizziness; headache; loss of appetite; mouth sores or swelling of the tongue; nausea or vomiting; tiredness couple nights ago i went for a walk through the park at about 12:30am. everyone in my home was sleeping. it was a clear night. i love stars and thought i would take a walk. i laid back on the bleachers listening to the ipod to clear my mind stargazing.
Avatar n tn okay so i went to the doctor yesterday and he took a sample of my tongue. He said there didnt seem to be any indication of a yeast infection ( oral thrush) but the severe white tongue and bad breathe were probably caused by post-nasal drip. Just giving an update thanks again.
Avatar f tn These are due to tiny areas of bleeding into the skin, often because of scratching. • There may be scarring that causes loss of vulvar tissue (eg. clitoris) or shrinkage of the vulvar areas, which can cause pain and interfere with sexual intercourse and even cause problems with urination. • It does not involve the vagina." For further information on the Internet Thank you for your help and support everyone!
Avatar n tn Also, are you on the pill, by any chance? Or diabetic? Either of those can cause frequent yeast infections. But most of all, did your doctor actually diagnose you in person with a yeast infection, or just call something in for you over the phone? If the latter, I'd make an appt to be seen. You may either have a different strain of yeast, or another type of infection.
Avatar n tn If you are concerned about either condition, a simple blood test can rule out both of those things during a visit to your health care provider and set your mind at ease. Lots and lots of women have recurrent yeast infections. It can be due to lots of things. Simple things you can do are to wear loose cotton panties, don't wear pantiliners, don't use feminine hygeine sprays or powders.
Avatar f tn Pain and burning on right side of tongue, pain in top and bottom teeth, jaw and ear, painless swelling of lymph tissue near right jaw and very frequent headaches that feel like they're going right through my eyeball. When I read that you felt OK in the morning but progressively worse as the day wore on, I almost fell out of my chair because this is the first time I've encountered someone who's experiencing that same phenomena.
Avatar f tn Thrush appears as white patches in the mouth. Usually they can be seen on the tongue, inside the cheeks, under the tongue, and in the back of the throat. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Third, no STD is a likely cause of sore throat or geographic tongue. Gonorrhea can cause sore throat, but usually does not; most oral gonorrhea is entirely without symptoms. I can't comment on a "vaginal" odor to your mouth or breath, except that any bacterial overgrowth can cause similar odors, and that's the source of most female genital odors.
Avatar n tn The only abnormalities found so far are high yeast count in my digestive system, high white blood count, and LOTS of adhesions. Also, my stomach empties too fast. The pain wakes me at night, even if I take a sleeping pill. The only difference is that I am too sleepy to drive to the hospital if I have to go.
Avatar f tn I took 3 day Monistat and the symptoms went from urgency/frequency of urination to just urethral burning. I then became convinced I had an overgrowth of candida in my system (I have had yeast infections countless times since my teens, not to mention BV, my tongue is always white and furry, I cough up small white chunks sometimes and often have a bad taste in my mouth) so I convinced the clinic doc to give me Diflucan. She gave me one pill which helped, but it wasn't enough.
Avatar n tn I had a coating on my tongue after the antibiotics, but after eating a no sugar, no yeast diet, the coating has disappeared and my tongue is pink again. But, my feet look like they are covered in dry skin but they itch - candida??? I'm really scared now, because if it is the cause of the tachy and the circulation probs, then it is invasive fungal infection! I did have a chest x ray and nothing was seen on that, but, I have not had a fungal culture done.
Avatar n tn - sores started at tip of tongue - was prescribed an anti-biotic by a doctor, but worsened the problem - sores advanced covering 1/3 of tongue - cracks developed in the middle of tongue - strong burning sensation - developed a metal taste in mouth After mentioning this to an Indian friend of mine, she recommended using pure salt (i.e. the salt granules, not diluted in water). In just two weeks I have improved dramatically; the sores and cracks have disappeared!
Avatar n tn with no STDs or infections, significantly increase their chances of developing yeast infections. This is because the inside of the vagina is a naturally very acidic environment, while semen is alkaline. The introduction of the alkaline semen into the acidic vagina screws up the pH there and this out-of-whack pH is perfect for an increase in the bad bacteria in the vagina.
Avatar n tn STDs are a specific list of infections. Yeast is not one of them. You can catch all kinds of infections during sex, i.e. a common cold, HSV1, yeast, etc. However that does not make them STDs. I would be interested to know a bit more about the progression of your symptoms. Have you found any good websites that discuss a similar scenario?
Avatar f tn Perhaps you have read that yeast infections are more common in HIV infected people, but it remains true that the vast majority of women with recurrent yeast infections do not have HIV -- and your tests prove you do not. That you "can't get HIV out of my head" reflects a need for psycholgoical support, not further information from me about your symptoms. I suggest you address your fears directly and frankly with the Dr. and/or nurse you have been seeing.
