About Oral thrush

Back to the top

Oropharyngeal candidiasis, more commonly known as thrush, is an infection of the mouth in which the fungus (yeast) Candida albicans builds up on the lining of the mouth. Candida is a common bacteria that is harmless in small amounts, but an overgrowth of it can cause infection and symptoms. Thrush can affect anyone, but newborns, toddlers, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk.

The symptoms of thrush may not be noticeable at first and often depend on the age of the affected person. The following are possible signs and symptoms:

  • Creamy white, slightly raised lesions in your mouth resembling cottage cheese. These usually occur on the tongue or inner cheeks, though you may also get them on the roof of the mouth, gums, and tonsils. People with weakened immune systems sometimes get these in the esophagus.
  • Redness, burning, cracking, or pain inside or at the corners of your mouth.
  • Loss of taste.
  • Pain or difficulty swallowing.
  • A cottony sensation in your mouth.
Treatment Options

Thrush is normally treated with an antifungal medication. You will normally have to take these medications for 10 to 14 days. Below is a list of common medications often prescribed for oral thrush which a doctor or provider can prescribe for you for just $5 through SesameRx.

Most healthy adults and children can be effectively treated with antifungal medicine. Mothers with infants who are breastfeeding sometimes spread the disease to each other. They must be treated together to avoid the ongoing transmission of thrush. In these instances, the baby may be prescribed a modest antifungal medication while the mother is given an antifungal lotion for her breasts. Removing the underlying cause of the disease is also important to prevent its recurrence.
