Dermatologist 's  Response

Since you have oral candidiasis, you would need a continuous treatment with both oral and topical antifungals medicines.
Also it is important to find out the cause of such an infection.
Patients on antibiotics can develop such long term infections, even those on other immunosupressive drugs can develop such long term infections.
You might also need an evaluation of the blood glucose levels.

See a nearby dermatologist for proper assessment and management.
