Is oral thrush connected to oral sex?
Oral thrush will be cured soon, don't worry about it...
I had gone through your question thoroughly and i ensure you to guide you in the right direction.
As per the information available from your side, it seems that you are having oral candida infection or thrush and you are being treated with fluconazole, which is the antifungal medicine to treat it.
Coming to your main question, you may or maynot get rid off this oral thrush. Sometimes after stopping the mediicne, the thrush recurs. Fluconazole dose is 100 mg daily for 4 to 6 weeks and may cure candida in some cases. But it has some side-effects.
I would also recommend you to take proper care of oral hygiene like daily salt water gargle for 4 to 5 times a day, avoid carbohydrate rich diet, brush your teeth twice a day, avoid sugar containing food, avoid smoking, drink cleaner water etc.
Even if it does not get cured, you can live with it without much issues.
Hope this answers your question and let me know if you have any further queries.
You can ask for daily flucanazole and white spots will disappear gradually.
Yes, you can suggest your doctor to take flucanazole once a day, which is better course rather than weekly course. And don't take flucanazole for more than 4 weeks. You will definitely get rid off your infection and white spots will also disappear gradually if candida infection is cured completely, don't worry. But if these suspected fordyce spots do not disappear, then also it will not lead to any health related issues to you....
These signs and symptoms may be due to drug interactions....
This kind of signs and symptoms may be because of various drugs interaction which you had taken, so i would recommend you not to take any further drugs after completing fluconazole course. Oral thrush will not lead to oily skin and rashes in palm. I would suggest you to give physical exam after getting cured with candida, but it will not keep you unfit for work, if you are going for physical exam right now.
Ask for daily fluconazole if possible...
I am not sure whether weekly therapy is effective or not, but daily therapy is definitely effective in treating oral thrush. Loss of appetite may be due to stress, it is not connected with oral thrush. So you can ask your doctor for daily treatment, otherwise you can stick to the doctor and trust his treatment. I also suggest you to confirm the diagnosis again, because its not been cured till now after taking fluconazole.
You can take vitamin C and topical gel also....
You are welcome...
You can take vitamin C along with fluconazole, its absolutely safe and beneficial, so you can take it. No you need not to drop daktarin oral gel, because its topical antifungal miconazole and you can take it with oral therapy. You can use BBC spray, but don't overuse it.
Its very very difficult to tell exact percentage for curing oral thrush, but its definitely better than weekly therapy. Don't worry, you will be normal soon, be patient....
LFTs are not required....
You are welcome anytime...
Don't worry, things will be normal very soon, just be patient and have faith in your doctor as well as god. Fluconazole rarely cause any kind of serious liver dysfunction. it can elevate SGPT levels transiently, but its not significant. So i would suggest that LFTs are not required before taking daily fluconazole.
Side effects are very rare with fluconazole...
If oral thrush is still there after finishing treatment,then you need to reconsider the lesions and consult your dermatologist to rule out other possibilities.
Oral fluconazole has its own side effects (long list) like abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation, skin rashes, difficulty in swallowing, etc. But they are very rare, so you need not to worry much about it.
You can use oral gel with daily fluconazole. don't overuse bbc spray....
No need to drop oral gel even if you are going to take daily fluconazole. BBC spray should be used within limits, don't overuse BBC spray......also maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, avoid eating sweets and gargle salt water few times a day.....
