Have an oral thrush, burns every time. How to get cured?

I have an oral thrush. Had them for about 2 weeks now. Realized my threshold towards spicy food significantly reduced. It burns every time I have curry or even when in contact with pepper. It s that sensitive. However, most of the white spots( candida ) bacteria is gone. My mouth looks totally normal, yet these symptoms still persist. I have taken Betadine mouth gargle for a week and haven t tried anything else.

I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist) and am glad to address to your query here.

Thrush is a yeast infection of the mucus membranes in the mouth and on the tongue. Thrush causes white patches in the mouth and on the tongue.

Thrush is also common in the elderly because of weakened immune systems.

Some people get thrush when they take certain medications like antibiotics or inhaled corticosteroids. Some conditions make thrush more common such as diabetes and HIV.

Thrush is not serious and can be treated with antifungal medications. Usually a liquid or lozenge is prescribed first and then a pill if these do not work. Doctors generally can diagnose thrush by just looking in your mouth.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at healthcaremagic through my profile directly.
