Brief Answer:
Oral thrush

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to healthcare magic and thanks for putting up the query
This is probably oral thrush
Use hexidine mouth wash and candid mouth paint 3 to 4 times a day for a week.
Brush twice daily and clean your tongue with a tongue Cleaner.
All the medicines I prescribed are available only on prescription.

Wishing you a speedy recovery

Thanks and regards

i have had in the last 2 months, 3 times that after i have swallowed some food that was spicy, and a sip of coffee, then some coke, my throat making me feel like i m loosing my breath. only happens for a few seconds, then i m fine. but now making me scared everytime i swallow food or water that i am going to choke. i was walking daily, until it happened about 2 weeks ago-now i m scared that it will happen while i m walking. has never happened other than when i swallowed food or liquid. i did quit smoking after 9 years (quit 2 months ago) so was wondering if i could be having some type of asthma or copd attack..other than this i have had some problems with my hands as in what feels like carpal tunnel. other than these things, i feel fine. 51 yo male5 11 175 lbs in 1986 had a collapsed lung-had surgery to remove (if i remember correctly) a cyst from the plural lining-surgery went good--never had anymore problems. (yes-i know was dumb to pick up cigarettes again) other than that, lost insurance coverage many years ago--last physical in 2002--everything was good.

Hello, my name is Natasha for the past while I haven’t been feeling good I had a kidney infection and then after I was experience symptoms like dizziness, nausea, puking, feeling weak, collapsing when I get up, back pains, abdominal pain which I usually feel all the time either faint or strong which is more on the left side, increased heart rate, low systolic and diastolic and right now I have numbness in my arm and have been having bad circulation problems, im only 19 and for the past 4 years ive been experience symptoms like such one doctor thought it was asthma, one depression, one anxiety…ive had my lungs tested, ultra sounds, x-rays, heart checked at the hospital soo many tests I I could go off but no doctor has seemed to figure out what it is. Problem is that its not all the time its periodically but not all the time.. Within the past couple years I have been in the hospital multiple times. They’ve given me morphine and sent me home.. I really just want to know what’s wrong with me. I used to be able to run and work out and hike and do everything but now I cant even dance for five minuets without my chest tensing up and having extreme pain. I just want it to be how I used to be. Please help me with any advice you could, I really appreciate it. Thanks.

I have a nephew who has a growth problem. He has not had a proper diagnosis but has seen several specialist who have recommended growth hormone injections . My concern is that he has severe Asthma and I have researched the growth hormone injections which state that there have been reported deaths in patients who have acute respiratory failure . That is a risk we are not willing to take but I m not sure if Asthma falls under acute respiratory failure .
