Fungal mouth infection treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Fungal mouth infection treatment


Avatar n tn Hello, Yes fungal infections like candidiasis and bacterial infections like gonorrhea are spread through sexual relations with an infected partner.Regarding candida, it can be contracted through sexual intercourse with an infected partner ,yet it is not a sexually-transmitted infection. Women who have not had sexual intercourse may also get it as the fungus is present in our environment. I sincerely hope it helps.
Avatar n tn Any ideas on what else this could be besides a fungal infection? If it is a fungal infection, what other treatments are there? Enemas? Nystatin? Thank you.
Avatar m tn could it be that i my have a fungal infection in my stomach or my digestive system or mouth? can someone help??
Avatar m tn went to dermatologist complaining of burning sensation in mustache area and dry yet oily skin on my cheeks which would not subside after drinking 60 ounces of water a day.
Avatar m tn A skin swab analysed by the laboratory would show whether it was a fungus and what type of fungus it was. Any type of fungal infection can be difficult to treat and in some cases requires long term management by good hygiene, healthy diet, appropriate creams, and or antifungal medications by mouth.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a fungal ear infection (tropical ear) today - I have had repeatedly dealt with 'swimmers ear' over the past 3 years, sometimes as often as 3 times per year. I have had severe pain in the affected ear, as well as pain in the temple on the affected side. Starting 2 days ago, the lymph node behind that ear (which has been swollen since Nov. 07) became extremely painful. It's like having cramps in the side of your neck at times. My ENT prescribed ZOTO-HC OTIC SOL.
362971 tn?1201990634 The worst off it has been recurring Pericarditis and recently I got a bad case of Thrush (fungal infection in the mouth) while on vacation. It took about 3 weeks of Nystatin to get rid of it. My CBC's look ok along with my other bloods tests. Could it be the effect of Interferon on our immune system that Dr's don't know how to test for. I have had a lot of inflamation since finishing treatment even though my Cholesterol is very good and blood sugar is fine also.
Avatar f tn ) has at least a skin fungal infection (maybe malassezia) and likely a systemic infection at this point. DO I ask his dermatologist to test his skin or his primary care doc to test his blood?
Avatar m tn Can anyone tell me about the mouth pain that some get during treatment. Does it go away eventually? I love my food I love to cook. I am afraid to taste what I cook as it may sting so bad that I break out in a sweat. I have a hard time talking clearly frequently so people keep asking me to repeat myself which exacerbates the situation. If I had to live with this I'm not sure how I would cope. I am also Bipolar and under treatment but this pain is putting a strain on my mood status.
Avatar m tn For approx 2 years I have had a stubborn fungal growth around my mouth that is controllable using the many antifungals I have, both over the counter and prescribed. However, when I try to grow a mustache, the fungus is unresponsive to antifungal medications and becomes a brown scab. As soon as I shave, and apply one off the antifungals, it disappears within 2 days. It has disappeared completely due to regular shaving.
Avatar f tn Hi there, and welcome to the forum. Yeah, you might have developed an infection as a result of suppressed white blood cells. Fungal, thrush-type stuff is somewhat common. Ask your doctor about it, they might prescribe a swish-and-swallow solution called ‘magic mouth wash’ that can help. Also important will be to make sure your blood is being adequately monitored; how often do they send you for labs?
Avatar m tn Hello, Herpes is a viral infection and not a fungal infection. For fungal infection of the genitalia, topical and oral antifungals need to be prescribed. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic and not an antifungal which is used for bacterial infection and not fungal infection. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn This drug is usually indicated in conditions where treatment by mouth is necessary due to the severity, site or extent of the infection. The length of treatment depends on the infection being treated. It usually needs to be taken for between two and six weeks for skin infections, and between six weeks and six months for nail infections. It is advised to follow the instructions given by your doctor.
Avatar n tn Fungal infection (e.g. Candidiasis) can also manifest as white patches. The mouth lesions from fungal infection may also be associated with a stinging or burning sensation. If those lesions really bother you, I strongly suggest that you have those examined by another doctor. A swab or a biopsy of those lesions may need to be done.
Avatar n tn I have had Hep C for 27 years now. I have been suffering with fungal infection of the toe and finger nails now for a year and a half, only using topical creams or nail laquer because I was told I could not take Lamisil due to how it would affect my liver. These are not effective solutions for me. Are people like myself just supposed to live with it? Are there medications being developed for those of us who can't take the same meds that those who don't suffer from hep c take? And if not,why not?
Avatar m tn Hey there, good luck as you go through the rest of treatment. Some of us develop ulcers and thrush-like fungal infections in the mouth like you describe. You should talk to your doctor about this; he needs to make sure your white cells/ANC are sufficient; this will be ordered as part of your routine labs but should be checked. He might prescribe something like ‘magic mouthwash’ to help too.
Avatar f tn It might be a Candida fungal infection - check with your doc. Riba is not kind to your mouth, teeth and gums. It is also not kind to your retinas.
Avatar n tn Get the christtree bottle brush type flossers, or the one day picks, or whatever works for you but keeping the mouth clean is key because your white count goes LOW while on treatment, and you just won't have anough antibodies to fight off what happens in your mouth if you don't keep it up. I keep toothpicks within reach day and night now and massage my gums. Actually my mouth is in better shape now than in just took a little finessing.
1337001 tn?1276887441 This article is aimed at discussing 'how to recognize symptoms of an ear infection'. Things here have been put in a nutshell, making it very much simplified, trying to cover most of the ear problems and at the same time emphasizing on emergencies also. Ear blockage for more than 3-4 days following an attack of cold, associated with or without pain and discharge from the ear warrants a thorough check-up with an immediate intervention.
Avatar f tn I have had an itchy rash around my mouth and cheeks for about 6months now.The skin around this area tends to get very dry and when i sweat,i.e in the hot weather,the itching gets worse.I have tried using an anti-bacterial cream and anti-fungal cream and while they provide temporary relief against itching,the skin gets very tight and discolored and the rash is still there.I previously had the same condition for three weeks some time back and was told it would just disappear on its own.
Avatar m tn I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times. In any case, I think the problems on my tongue are related to that encounter. Girl I was with refused to test for anything.
250701 tn?1320978365 I also recommend using biotene toothpaste and mouthwash. Sometimes I would add a drop or two of perioxide to a small glass of water and gargle with that. If nothing works, ask your doctor. You may need an rx. Hopefully it will get better soon.
Avatar f tn I am going on my 5th wk of treatment and just started to have a few mouth sores on the inside of my lips. I know a few people have had this. Any suggestions on how to treat this so it will heal and hopefully not get too much worse?
Avatar f tn I also have used biotene since start of treatment and have had no mouth sores thus far, for corner mouth sores, the tinactin does work.
Avatar f tn This fungal thing started toward the end of my Lyme antibiotic treatment, and I was put on massive doses of Diflucan to kill the systemic fungal infection. Way too many docs think a fungal infection means some pesky itchy v*ginal infection, and don't take into account that it can overwhelm a variant immune system or a sensitivity to mold (which is fungus, after all). [[Looking back, I think this tendency runs in my family. My father had chronic 'sinus trouble' and lived on Coricidin etc.
Avatar n tn I am hoping you can help me with this as I'm not sure where this question fits. Over the last 6 months I have had white patches in my cheeks my tongue. THey come and go and move around to different places in my mouth. I had an HIV test outside of the window period and it was negative so it is highly unlikely to be OHL. I have read a lot about uclers, lichen planus, OHL, cheek biting, etc.
Avatar f tn Oral cavity should be looked for candidiasis which may be eythematous and needs anti-fungal treatment. Drugs like Pilocarpine or Cevimeline, which prevents dry mouth, should only be taken after consultation from physician. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn Viral or bacterial infection can also to contribute these swollen areas on roof of mouth. Deficiencies of vitamin B12 and folic acid can also lead to a sore palate. Cold sores called as fever blisters can also cause ulcers on roof of mouth. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Do see a physician. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn A biopsy skin can also help in cliniching diagnosis. Treatment is different for both. While it is antifungals for the fungal infection, it is steroids and antihistaminics for the eczema. 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 dermatologist. Treatment can be started only when the diagnosis is confirmed.
177554 tn?1256357393 Hi - I have had Crohn's for some 35 yrs - am aware it can spread from the mouth to the anus. I don't recollect having mouth ulcers caused by Crohn's, but I had very bad mouth ulcers when on FEC chemo for breast cancer 4 yrs ago. It is a usual side effect of some chemos. The Oncology dept supplied foc various meds - I think the mouthwashes were Cordosyl and Diflocam and I also had some anti-fungal lozenges, but sorry, can't remember the name.
