My husband had thrush while in the hospital after having
Nystatin is an anti-fungal
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I will not suggest Nystatin, if thrush is gone. In fact do not use it now. He is in recovering mode. Nystatin will not help with bad taste.
Altered taste is probably caused by antibiotics that may have been prescribed during surgery. Medicine induced bad taste usually reverses within a few days of discontinuing medicine.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Yes it will get better in sometime
Bad taste is usually seen when wound healing is impaired and person is elderly. The same antibiotics should be avoided. Unnecessary antibiotics also avoided.
Artificial saliva, dietary consultation to minimize effects on nutritional status, sugar candies can help.
