Dear Friend. Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I have read your query in detail. I understand your concern. First of all we need to find out why the oral thrush is there? is it because of candida infection? Usually such severe oral thrush occurs in cases of Immuno suppressed status.
I would suggest you to get his following investigations done: 1. HIV 2. HbSAg, Anti HCV Antibody. 3. Upper GI Endoscopy 4. Fasting Blood Sugar.
Review with the reports. This is my best opinion for you based on available details. If you have any further query please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney, MD
