Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns, however oral thrush is usually due to candidiasis which is a common side effect following an antibiotic use.. You should use either nystatin topical ointement four times daily for seven days or fluconazol tablets once daily for 14 days.. you can also try salty water mouth wash (half a teaspoon of salt added to a cup of water.. I hope you find this helpful
