Brief Answer:
Oral antibiotics can cause thrush

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us.

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

Ciprofloxacin can cause thrush. It is a broad spectrum oral antibiotic and can suppress commensal/ resident bacterial flora responsible for keeping the yeast growth under check. Therefore, the yeast may grow uninhibited and cause thrush.
